Gaining muscle mass is a very laborious and lengthy process. Building strong muscles requires thousands of hours of exercise in the gym and in the kitchen. You need to sleep 8 hours a day and monitor your diet tightly. To gain muscle mass, especially if you are an ectomorph, you need to invest a huge amount of resources in yourself. However, despite this, very often it is not possible to gain dry muscles and for beginning bodybuilders it turns out not fat, but muscle mass.
What is anabolism?
Anabolism is a process of growth. Moreover, the growth of not only your muscles, but also your fat. In order to start the process of anabolism, several factors of varying degrees of individual importance are necessary, however, without an excess of calories in your diet, you basically can not start the process of anabolism and will be either in a stable state (do not gain or lose weight) or in catabolism ( start losing weight). At the same time, if your calorie excess is not very significant, then these calories will not be stored in fat, however, if your body will constantly consume more than it needs to maintain vital functions and gain muscle mass, then together with muscle anabolism you will have fat anabolism. Moreover, the greater the unreasonable excess of calories will be, the stronger this fat anabolism will be noticeable on your body.
Are anabolism compatible with catabolism?
If anabolism is a process of growth, then catabolism is a process of destruction. Catabolism, like anabolism, destroys not only your fat, but also muscles. Moreover, catabolism and anabolism are two opposite processes. You can’t move forward and backward at the same time, just the same way you won’t be able to burn fat and build muscle at the same time. Therefore, overweight people who come to the gym with the hope of losing weight and gaining muscle at the same time amuse themselves with unrealistic illusions, since it is impossible to combine catabolism with anabolism, and, therefore, gaining weight and drying at the same time is simply unrealistic.
Is it possible to build muscle and not get fat?
As we already understood, it is impossible to build muscle and “drive off” fat at the same time. However, is it possible to start the process of anabolism only on the muscles without disturbing your body fat? Most likely you can. Fat people do not have impressive power data, even considering that they eat a lot, and the process of anabolism in terms of fat is fast. If fat people manage to gain fat without gaining muscle at the same time, then muscle growth should result in muscle growth without increasing the amount of visible body fat. How to do this under normal conditions? Only through lengthy self-experimentation. For example, with 4000 calories you gain both muscle and fat. In this case, you need to reduce the amount of calories consumed until then forearm dumbbell exercises , until you notice that the amount of fat on your body increases to become stale. Only in this case you will be able to build muscle without fat. This requires a great desire and iron self-control.
How to gain muscle without fat?
Well, and if you do not have a great desire and iron self-control? Then, probably, bodybuilding does not suit you. You better do something that you prefer. Ballroom dancing, for example. But seriously, then there is a way out. You can eat even without excess calories, but at the same time you will build muscle without affecting the amount of fat in your body. To do this, you need a very high level of testosterone. Why don’t girls and girls muscles grow like men? Because there is no major male sex hormone that is responsible for muscle growth. No testosterone. Men have it and this allows us to gain muscle. However, it is not at all high due to genetic and many other factors. What to do in this case? Get testosterone from the outside. Artificial Testosterone. We are talking about anabolic steroids, which greatly affect muscle growth. If your manipulations with nutrition, as we discussed above, have not gone through, then the only option that allows you to build muscle without fat is taking anabolic steroids. However, you should think three times before you start taking steroids. Yes, their harm is greatly exaggerated, but the point here is not the harm, but the fact that you are most likely not a professional and do not know how to correctly compose courses. In this case, of course, you will gain “dry” mass, but a month after stopping the use of steroids, you will “drain” 90–95% of the accumulated. Taking steroids is really effective in gaining lean muscle mass, but steroids can only do harm in the hands of a novice.
