The human body consists of various systems performing a multitude of functions. Every action is determined and stimulated as per the nervous system. Similarly, the actions to move a limb or any other body part are conditioned by the muscular system. Muscle, known for its elasticity, contracts to help the various body movements. Not only this, muscles also determine the shape of the human body. It is. therefore, necessary to keep the muscles in shape, for an active and proper functioning of the body. This can be achieved by Building Muscles.
Building Muscles help to break down fat and maintain a healthy body. In the human body muscle tissues are re-built from the broken down muscle tissues. The muscle gains in mass when the breakdown activity or catabolism is overtaken by re-building activity or anabolism. Muscles build up with the increase in muscle mass or fibers.
With the growing awareness of the importance of exercises to ‘look good and feel good’, more and more people are going in for Building Muscles. Exercises varying from aerobic and cardiovascular to weight training help to Build Muscles. A regular practice improves blood circulation and supplies oxygen to nourish muscles. This will help to burn fat and Build Muscles.
The exercise is supplemented with a diet rich in carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin D, E, B, calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, sodium and potassium. Of course, water is equally important to prevent electrolyte or mineral salt (loss in potassium, sodium) imbalance of the body, and dehydration.
Muscles are the powerhouses that burn calories. So a body with more muscles means the body burns more fat and increases bone density. An aging body especially tends to gain fat and weight, affecting muscles. Therefore, one needs to build muscles as a precaution to prevent ill health and prevent chances of osteoporosis. But in case of body builders, they take up weight training, a good calorie diet with proper rest to Build Muscles. They also take supplements to increase muscle mass by improving muscle growth. These may vary from ordinary health drinks to steroids and growth hormone injections.
