MUSCLE GAIN: EXPECTATION VS REALITY


Whether they’re losing fat or gaining lean body mass (LBM), one of the biggest obstacles that discourages my clients is when their expectations 💭 don’t meet their reality 📈.


It may be tempting to want results NOW 🤬👇🏻, and the idea of taking 3 months or more to get results can sound LONG 😱.


However, would you either get faster, TEMPORARY results or slower, PERMANENT results🎯?


Let’s say you want to increase your LBM. 💪🏻


A healthy rate would be to gain 1-2kg of LBM per month🏋🏻‍♂️. That means in a year, you can gain at most 24kg of LBM.


During your journey, you will need to be mindful of

  1. 🍱 What You Eat You will need adequate carb- and protein-dense meals

  2. ⏰ When You Eat You'll need to fuel your body before training and re-fuel it after training

  3. 🏋🏻‍♀️ Your Training Routine A certain amount of intensity and volume will be needed to stimulate muscle fibers to tear for growth

  4. 😴 Your Recovery Recovery is part of training as well. it gives our bodies time to regenerate from training


Not gonna lie: it WILL BE A CHALLENGE. 🤯


But, so long as expectations and reality are aligned, the journey will be easier and the likelihood of hitting those target goals higher.


I’ve been there. I couldn’t have done it without the support of my coaches and friends.


This is why during my time with my crew, I make sure they get the support that they need. That could be

  • Nutrition Coaching 🍱

  • Troubleshoot Obstacles 🚧

  • Moral Support 👂🏻


Give me a 👂🏻 to having a supportive community!!
