When it comes to building more lean muscle mass, there are three important requirements:
- Intense overload through a heavy weight lifting workout program
- Proper nutrition providing the raw materials your body needs to generate more lean muscle mass
- Adequate rest in order for the process of build muscle tissue assimilation to take place
If you’ve been doing your research, you likely have a very good handle on all of these things. You’re hitting the gym regularly, you’re making sure to get in 5-6 meals a day at regular intervals, and you’ve started prioritizing your sleep, making sure that you’re obtaining at least 7, if not 8 or 9 high quality hours of rest.
All seems to be under control, right?
As you go about the process though, you may find yourself hitting a plateau. You might find that it seems like you just aren’t getting bigger and stronger despite doing everything right. It might even feel like your body is broken or something. It’s just not responding the way it should.

Everyday people also back this up. Just ask anyone on the street what they think about when hear the term bodybuilder and at least a few will say something to the effect of ‘slamming back protein shakes’.
It’s common knowledge that those who are hitting the weights hard need to be eating more protein. Almost any site you read online will tell you just that.
