Nutrition for Building Muscle

Training is the stimulus for muscle growth but nutrition is what provides the necessary nutrients for that to happen. It’s pretty simple. You have to eat enough to gain weight slowly and make sure you eat about 1g of protein per pounds of bodyweight per day.

 

In this section, we've compiled videos, articles and other resources for you to learn how to set and adjust your nutrition for muscle growth.
