Top 10 Muscle Building Foods

To get you started, here is my list of the top ten foods to help you gain more muscle mass and strength.

If you’re training your brains out and eating mindlessly, you’re holding yourself back. 

1. Lean Beef

This should be a staple of your diet if you want to gain muscle mass. Lean beef is loaded with all sorts of things conducive to muscle growth, including iron, zinc and B-vitamins. More importantly, it provides your body with high quality protein (not all proteins are equal), and a high level of amino acid that works with insulin to promote muscle growth. For those who are trying to lose weight, this should come as great news – a 3oz serving of lean beef provides roughly the same amount of protein as 1.5 cups of beans, but at half the calories.

2. Skinless Chicken

Like beef, chicken is an excellent source of high quality protein, which is important for muscle maintenance and repair, bone health, and weight maintenance. And of course, there are so many ways you can cook and prepare chicken. Go down to the store and you can easily find chicken meat cut into single serving sizes that can be seasoned and quickly cooked.

3. Cottage Cheese

Not many people know this, but cottage cheese is almost entirely pure casein protein. Casein is a slow-digesting protein, which means it is perfect for muscle maintenance. This is useful especially for people who have no choice but to go long periods without eating. Cottage cheese is also an excellent source of vitamin B12, calcium, and other important nutrients.

4. Eggs

Eggs contain high quality protein, nine essential amino acids, choline, the right kind of fat, and vitamin D. They provide the most value for your money. And eggs are not harmful for your health, as numerous studies have already shown.

5. Whey Protein

There is a reason why whey protein supplements are the most popular supplement in the fitness industry: they provide a fast and convenient source of protein at an affordable price. Bodybuilders normally use them when they wake up, right after their workout, and mixed with some of their meals. For the rest of us, a scoop in our shakers right after our workouts can be very effective for muscle mass gains. It’s important that you still get high quality protein from whole foods, and use whey protein as a boost.

6. Tuna and Other Fish

Fish are high in protein, low in fat, and rich in omega-3 fatty acids. The omega-3s are essential because they aid in fat loss and ensure the proper function of your body processes, such as your metabolism.

7. Oatmeal

Oatmeal is an great source of carbohydrates due to both its low glycemic index (GI) value and the fact it is minimally processed. The benefits of a low-GI diet include:

 

  • Better micronutrient profile and more fiber
  • Increased satiety
  • Decreased hunger
  • Lower subsequent energy intake (second meal effect)
  • Fat loss

 

In short, low-GI foods can enhance fat loss for those looking to lose weight, and provide a constant source of carbs for muscle preservation.

Wait, aren’t carbs bad? Not if you do them right:

8. Whole Grains

Whole grains digest more efficiently and provide more nutrients than refined grains. This promotes sustained energy levels and overall health. In particular, brown rice can help boost your growth hormone levels, which are critical for encouraging lean muscle growth, fat loss, and strength gains.

9. Fruits and Vegetables

Fruits and vegetables are a rich source of antioxidants, which are essential for the healthy functioning of your immune system. They also provide tons of other nutrients, such as vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene. Finally, your body requires the fiber these fruits and vegetables provide to aid in proper digestion and nutrient uptake.

10. Healthy Fats

I know the thought of consuming fat makes some of you shudder, but good fats are essential for muscle growth. In fact, they play an essential role in hormone production (testosterone and growth hormones), which helps drive muscle growth and strength gains. In addition, fats are needed for many important maintenance functions. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats are the good fats. You can find them in salmon, other fishes, nuts, leafy veggies, oils such as flaxseed, avocados, and seeds. They are also all rich in omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

10 Of The Best Fitness Clubs In America

Americans have never had more choices in terms of fitness clubs. All hours’ access, hula-dancing classes, mountain biking field trips…you name it, the best clubs in the business offer these and more.

Curious as to who the heavy hitters are? We compiled a list based on a number of factors. Some made the list for size and convenience, some for ambiance, some for creative services. We tried to give a comprehensive view of the complete fitness experience:

1. Equinox – A head above the rest, Equinox combines perks, full service and fastidiously clean facilities. With clubs on both the east and west coasts (as well as Chicago and Dallas) Equinox has a strong share of the market. It may not have as many outlets as 24-hour fitness, but each club is a unique gem.

The tag line It’s Not Fitness It’s Life sums up the comprehensive programming Equinox offers. Members can join the Conscious Movement and take advantage of workshops and classes showcasing science-based research on cutting edge topics including “mental engagement, music, breath work, movement quality, community and respect to life”. This, and state-of-the art equipment, too.

2. Lifetime Fitness – This Minnesota-based company has come on strong in the last few years. While expanding it’s clubs throughout the country, Lifetime has still maintained clean, inviting facilities that continue to draw members in.

Lifetime strives to create a “day spa” experience with inviting Lifecafe’s that sell nutritional and delicious meal choices along with creative smoothies and protein drinks. The in-house spas offer the full-range of amenities.

Lifetime also sets itself apart by providing indoor tennis facilities at a number of its clubs, a big plus in the cold weather cities.

3. 24 Hour Fitness – We’ve got to give a nod to the one of the biggest of them all. 24 Hour Fitness is the largest privately held fitness chain. Its 400+ clubs can be found in 17 states (as well as Asia as “California Fitness” clubs).

The first in the market to offer 24/7 access, 24 Hour offers the gambit of fitness classes and a range of clubs covering high-end offerings to just the basics.

4. Curves – The popular women-only fitness clubs are tapping into the wave of baby boomers who are realizing fitness needs to be a part of a healthy life. Curves has boosted its success by appealing to those just getting into exercise and by providing a comfortable atmosphere for women who would not otherwise join a gym.

The 30-minute strength and cardio workout is an ideal platform for this no-frills chain, along with the plethora of educational and motivational resources to help women get on a healthy track.

5. The Sports Club/LA – While it only has clubs in Southern and Northern California, New York, Boston, Washington, D.C. and Miami, The Sports Club/La is a magnificent example of how glitz can boost workout appeal.

At nearly any time you can find yourself sweating next to the hottest (and fittest) celebs and if you need inspiration, the general membership population looks like a gathering of Central Casting’s most beautiful people.

The Sports Club offers a hip L.A. vibe. If you’ve never been, check it out — it may be the reason you re-locate. New York Magazine calls it “the purest expression of gymness ever built.” Enough said.

6. Crunch – Looking to try anti-gravity yoga? Search no farther than Crunch. Our number 6 candidate is the premier club in terms of pushing the fitness program envelope. Consider these choices: surf and ski trips, pole dancing, yoga in the park and cooking classes provide enough options for the finickiest fitness enthusiasts.

The 31 state-of the art gyms are constantly finding ways to intertwine entertainment and fitness. While they aren’t in a majority of states, the franchises do bring a spark of innovation to the areas where they are located. Their newest touch – a midday reenergizing class complete with naptime.

7. Gold’s Gym – This one-time gym rat weight room facility located in Venice Beach has morphed into a family friendly global gym that caters to all ages.

Gold’s boasts a culture of personal training that helps members reach the next level of their health goals, whether training for a marathon, getting fit after pregnancy or learning how to stay fit with Diabetes. Most recently, Gold’s has paired with AARP to develop programs specifically designed for seniors.

With 600 locations across the globe, Gold’s is the largest co-ed gym in the world.

8. YMCA – While not high on the luxury factor, YMCA’s can be found in nearly every community across the country (10,000 nationwide). Members can get fit at an affordable price and enjoy programming that goes beyond the gym into the community.

We can’t ignore the ultimate family-friendly aspect of these clubs that have been around for over 160 years.

9. David Barton Gym – The high-ranking list maker in terms of ambience and architecture. Each David Barton Gym is a work of art. The facilities are impeccable and ultra cool.

If you are looking for an unmatched spoil-yourself fitness experience, David Barton is it. Unfortunately, you have to live in New York, Miami, Chicago, Seattle or Las Vegas to enjoy the grandeur.

10. Anytime Fitness – You’re not going to get any special programs here but what you will get is 24/7 access and affordability. This is the perfect gym for people who have busy schedules and aren’t looking for all the added bells and whistles.

Anytime Fitness’ growth shows how popular these inexpensive and easy facilities are – they currently open a new location every business day.

As is evident by our list, choices abound in every aspect (traditional and next tier) of health clubs. While they may range widely in differences, all have in common the use of health club management software that makes it easier than ever for members to connect and enjoy the fitness experience.

Intro & a shout-out to all PT's

Hi everyone!


This is my first time here and frankly I’m quite humbled and a little intimidated by the knowledge level of the forum members :costumed:


So here’s my short story and then I’ll cut to the chase. I’ve always been an athlete, from playing on my high-school basketball team, then through my army service, staying in shape was a routine part of my life. Coming out of University and starting a corporate career gave a massive blow to this routine because i didn’t have time to go to the gym and my apartment was too small to build my own home gym. This problem initiated a spark of idea which developed to an actual product which will soon be introduced on Kickstarter.


In the hope I am not breaking any forum rules here…


I am looking for Personal trainers to join a referral program for my kickstarter campaign. You can check it out here, it is a compact free-weights system combining adjustable kettlebells and dumbbells in one product (feedback and questions are more than welcome 🙂


So why a shoutout to all PT’s? Because you are an influencer within your community, whether you have 50 followers or 20,000, people listen to you because you know what you’re talking about and that is why I need your help!


I am trying to get the word out about my product and for this purpose I built a rewarding referral system where PT’s can introduce to their followers this cool product and make some easy cash while doing so.

How does it work?


1. If you liked my product and you think your followers might like it too, PM me. (Even if you don’t like it you can still earn some cash)

2. You will receive a customized link you can share with your community.

3. You will receive 10% of each sale originated from your link.

4. You will join a competition between all other PT’s included in the referral program. (Winner gets a free Double M45/ M25 valued at $270)

5. If you’d like, we will share your information on our Kickstarter campaign so you can enjoy the exposure, traffic and SEO.


((((PM me if you are interested))))


Happy Friday everyone!!

Heart pounding abnormally(?) from explosive motions

Hi,

I am having a situation that is concerning me and may require adjusting my training, at best, or medical inquiry at worst. First, the situation, and then a brief overview of my training.


I am 44 yo. I am noticing that in the last 6-12 months, whenever I conduct any explosive motion from a resting state, I become extremely fatigued, or out of breath, beyond normal or what I am used to, very quickly. I train in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai/kickboxing, so explosive motion is integral. This is anything from martial arts combat style explosive motion, to simply jogging up and down stairs.


My heart starts to pound exceptionally hard (in fact this is happening often at any state), and I am temporarily exhausted and winded. I’m sure this is normal to some degree, but it is relatively new to me, and I wouldn’t be posting this if I weren’t concerned. I feel it is beyond normal, or what I am used to. Something has changed.


I have been training intensively in martial arts for about five years. At times 4-5 days/week, but in the last 6 months, like 2-4 days/week. My endurance cardio is ok, but obviously not as strong as the 25 yr olds in my classes. I occasionally go for long intense bike rides. My body, in general, is starting to feel fatigued more often, and I can’t train as hard as a couple years ago. Maybe at 44 there is some turning point.


Metabolically I would say I am a person of medium energy. I am not a high energy, or an intensive triathlete type in general, but I have always been moderately athletic. Martial arts whips you into shape. I am 5’10”, 180. Not lean, but not stocky. Good build, slight belly.


I eat healthy, but not severely strict. No sugar or processed foods. I juice, smoothie, eat my veggies, hydration, etc. Maybe I could improve this more, but I eat pretty clean. Nothing in my diet indicates the condition described.


I’m basically wondering if anyone has fitness/medical experience to have a general idea what this could be. I do not expect a definitive answer just some ideas to point me in the right direction. Thank you.
