What's the best nutrition approach for athletes looking to build muscle for their sport? Use this infographic as it outlines some of the key factors that you'll need to consider when building your own meal plans. Two key non-nutrition things missing off this are; . 1) Training stimulus. 2) Consistency. Firstly, you need a stimulus caused by lifting weights, without this stimulus - you simply won't grow. End of. You can have the perfect nutrition approach, but if you sit on the sofa all day, muscle will not be gained. As much as it pains me to say it, lifting weights is more important that nutrition when it comes to building muscle. You must have the stimulus there to create an adaption. Nutrition then facilitates and amplifies this adaptation. As we now know, you can't force feed muscle growth as excessive calorie surplus will lead to unwanted body fat gain. This means that you'll be in a slight calorie surplus for a long period of time. With fat loss diets, progress can be made very quickly and is very motivating, but overfeeding bulking type diets are a much longer progress. Think of it this way; how long does it take to build a wall vs knocking it down? A crude way of thinking about it I know, but that's the difference in rates of progress. Be in it for the long run, this takes a lot of time and consistency. Don't rush the process. It will only make you stop in your tracks and want to start a calorie restricted fat loss diet. Play the long game, slow and steady. If you know of any athletes that need help building muscle or getting stronger for their sport - tag away and share. 2 ♡ 1 ✍ March 21

Hello! I thought I would do a quick little 10 facts about me in case you are new to my page. ⬇️⬇️⬇️ 1️⃣I LOVE to travel. My most recent trip was to Uganda to see my sister-in-law who lives there! We were traveling for almost a month and it was a super crazy awesome trip. 2️⃣I was born and raised in Georgia where I lived till I was 22 and I then moved across country to Boulder, CO. I lived there for 4 years before moving to FL to be a beach bum! 3️⃣I am a yoga instructor. I have been teaching yoga for 6 years now! Time flies!

I drink it iced, hot, in my @ilikechike protein, blended, you name it. 6️⃣Diet wise, I currently use the IIFYM method. I really enjoy tracking macros because I do not have to ban any foods.
