Apart from showing off or adhering a good body, muscle building has lot more in it and it should be done on priority basis as it not only accentuate your body but lets you have a healthy and sleek body too.
Some Reasons Muscle
Is Good (And You
Should Get Some)
So, Like me you are among the one
who is always confuse about the
muscle building and its Good/Bad
I am beyond sick and
tired of hearing this
“I lift light weights for higher reps to tone.”
“If I lift heavy weights, I will get too big.”
“Doing squats will make my butt bigger.”
“I just want definition and
don’t want to bulk.”
“I need to use light
high reps to get cut.”
People are having their own definition of
workout and muscle building, which is not
good and benefiting them at all....
All the beliefs I discussed above are long
standing, and have their genesis in a lot of
things, including training lore, muscle and
fitness periodicals, books, and specious Inter
I would like you to
● Lifting heavy weights does not guarantee bigger
● High reps performed with light weights do not
guarantee becoming “cut.”
● High reps performed with light weights can actually
develop bigger muscles, all other factors being equal.
● Muscle “tone” and definition have more to do with
diet and genetics as opposed to any exercise
● Male or female, the average (drug-free) person
needs to work their butt off to grow even a little
The Golden Rule of skeletal muscle is this: having more of it
is a bonus. Whether male or female, you should train hard to
build it or at least preserve your existing levels.
Knowing Skeletal muscle , It is a form of striated
muscle tissue which is under the voluntary control of
the somatic nervous system. It is one of three major
muscle types, the others being cardiac muscle and
smooth muscle. Most skeletal muscles are attached to
bones by bundles of collagen fibers known as tendons.
Skeletal muscle is metabolically active. Build
it and it will burn more calories throughout
the day. Work it hard and it will require more
energy during the recovery process. It is not
rocket science; it just takes strength training
Building and strengthening skeletal muscle
fortifies the bones, ligaments, and tendons.
This will minimize the risk of injury that can
occur in sport competition, training, getting
out of your car, or playing with your kids.
Skeletal muscle gives you shape, "tone,” and
that “fit” look. Build muscle lose fat look
great.You’ll have more selfconfidence. You’ll
look good at the beach or pool. You won’t be
afraid to buy those clothes you’ve been
wanting. Bottom line: skeletal muscle is sexier
than fat. Do the math.
Want to do the "cardio" thing? It is skeletal muscle
that moves the body. Work it hard and guess what?
You’ll stress your heartvascular system. Try a high
energy twentyminute workout as opposed to a low
level fiftyminute walk in the park. It will burn more
calories during the session and postworkout during
the recovery time.
Skeletal muscle helps you live longer. A study
from Tufts University found the more muscle
you have the better your chances of a longer
life. More than either blood pressure or
cholesterol, muscle was determined to be the
top biomarker for longevity.
More skeletal muscle means more insulin
receptor sites. More insulin receptors means
it's easier for your body to minimize fat and
Skeletal muscle can improve your posture.
Having the strength to hold good posture
can help other things, as well it can help
with chronic pain due to sciatica and
other back ailments.
Skeletal muscle makes everyday activities
easier. Becoming stronger and building
muscle gives you a fighting chance each day
when you must lift, bend, and stretch. Also,
you’re better able to fight fatigue with more
Combat sarcopenia by strength training.
Sarcopenia is the agerelated loss of muscle
tissue. The harsh reality is we lose muscle
mass as we age, up to 50% between the
ages of 20 and 90.
The message is very loud and clear here, Don’t
be afraid to build skeletal muscle. Include
strength training in your training program or
workout regimen. And remember to work as
hard as you can to stimulate those muscles to
I hope I've given you enough of reasons
to build MUSCLES, and build them
