If you're looking for an easy ride, you won't find it trying to gain muscle
Getting results in the gym isn’t only hard work physically at times, it can be tough mentally too. But the benefits of getting results and the way we feel after sessions heavily outweighs the hard work we’ve gone through in a session.
However, when it comes to gaining muscle, it isn’t something that happens in a few days, it may even take a few months to notice any small signs of change.
Depending on the way that you’re built, it could be a very long road to achieve the body that you really want. If you put your mind to it and realistically realise how much work in the gym, dedication outside of the gym is necessary for you to see real gains in muscle, you can achieve big things.
This is why people take the easy road and take things like steroids and growth hormones, because the pathway is so much quicker. However, in order to be healthy and avoid risk factors, I would take hard work all day long and eliminate any unnecessary future risk factors, both physically and mentally.
You can do it half-hearted and see some results, but if you put in the hard yards, be consistent and eat clean and consume enough protein, then you can achieve great things in terms of size and strength in a healthy way.
Create habits of a lifetime, train daily, find the right amount of calories and protein your body requires, get ripped!
