9 Reasons Why You are Failed to Build Muscles (Part 2)

In part one of this article, you learnt about 4 out of 9 major reasons that prevent you build muscles. Just you remind you, I would like to mention here those reasons which include insufficient consumption of calories, not having enough meals, not drinking enough water and choosing wrong workout routines. Now in part two, you will learn about 5 more reasons.

5) Following Same Workout Routine for Long Time

When you are struggling to build muscles, you must know that muscle building is basically a process in which your body is forced to show up its reaction against the stress that is put on it. When you use equipment to put much stress on body’s muscles, they get bigger to face the stress and pressure.

Moreover, you must understand that your body adopts the changes so quickly and shows its reaction against every kind of stress and if you keep on following the same workout routine for a long time, you can’t see the results you are looking for. Therefore, you must bring changes to your routine so the body reacts against the changes.

6) Unable to Give Full Focus on Progression of Weight

Progression in weight will help you build more muscles and if you don’t find progression, you can’t see the growth in your muscles. Progression means to get constant improvement in stress, weight and intensity. You must focus on bringing improvement in various aspects of the workout you perform on weekly basis.

You can increase the amount of weight you lift every day or you can increase the number of reps. No matter what you do but there must be some improvement and constant changes.

7) Using Wrong Exercise Techniques

It has also been noticed that many lifters choose the correct exercises to perform but the mistake they make is that they use the wrong technique to perform the exercise. Keep in mind that putting stress on muscles while using correct techniques will save you from getting serious injuries. Don’t look what other people are doing as they may be doing it wrong what you need to do is to keep the reps in controlled. You should never swing or drag the weight

8) Using Wrong Exercises

Using the wrong exercises is also a big reason. For example, if you are doing too much isolated exercises but not touching the compound exercises, you cannot build an impressive body.

The fitness experts believe that compound movements really help in gaining muscles fibers and they are considered to be one of the most effective muscles builders. An effective compound to get full isolation ratio is 3-1 or 2-1.

9) Not Getting Enough Sleep

While you are sleeping, your body works to repair damaged muscles and body tissues. Therefore, it is really important to have at least 8 hours of sleep. However, if you don’t feel tired, don’t force yourself to sleep. You should also follow a proper sleeping time which means set your time to sleep at night and wake up in the morning. Try to relax yourself if you have stress few years before you go to bed or you will find it really difficult to sleep. You can also have light snake at night.
