Myth 4: You need to eat lots of protein to build muscle

The more protein you eat, the more muscle you will build, right? Wrong.

The body only needs so much protein every day; when you surpass its requirements, it simply processes the extra calories the same way it would excess carbohydrate or fat calories. The protein is broken down, and some of it is excreted while some is stored as body fat or used as energy. The requirements for protein are 1.2 to 1.5 grams per kilogram of bodyweight; this amount will ensure that your body is getting enough of the building blocks it requires to create new muscle.

Rather than ingesting too much protein, a better option would be to supplement your diet with good sources of carbohydrates, as they are the body's preferred source of energy to create the muscle tissue from the protein you took in.

Myth 2: You don't need to work out your legs if you jog

See you do need to train legs for all those peoples out there that can't be assed

It seems like when you walk through a gym these days, everyone is huddled around the free weights doing arms, while there is no one to be seen at the squat rack. Men often decide to forgo any leg training and just concentrate on their upper bodies. They figure that since they went for a run that morning or did some interval training on the bike the day before, they have already worked their legs enough.

The truth is that working your legs will indirectly help your upper body grow. Your leg muscles are incredibly large; when stimulated, they release a large amount of testosterone -- the primary anabolic hormone responsible for muscle growth -- throughout the body. Thus, you will benefit your upper body on days you don't even work it out.

Also, having a strong lower body is the best basis for the rest of your training. Otherwise, it is like trying to build a house without a foundation -- not very effective. So be sure you don't pass up your leg training sessions any longer.

Cut it up

Controlling caloric intake — eating less — is the backbone of building a chiseled midsection, shredded pecs and sliced quads. Cutting back on daily caloric consumption is the first step. Step two in the leaning-out scenario is utilizing fat-burning supplements and clever tricks of the getting-ripped-in-a-hurry trade. Let's explore five ways to pursue quality conditioning in a pinch.


    This is an herb that wages war on fat. Fenugreek may prevent sugar levels from rising after a meal, which will preclude skyrocketing insulin levels. Keep in mind that insulin is classified as a fat-storing hormone. Go for one 500 mg capsule before each meal.
  • #2 FIBER

    Here's another standby that you might not have thought of as a fat-burning supplement. Despite its good rep as a fat-burner, many bodybuilders still avoid fiber like the plague. Scientific investigations show that fiber tablets help accelerate weight loss. Further research reveals that 1.5 grams of glucomannan (a type of fiber) taken twice daily before meals can help overweight individuals lose fat — even if they're not dieting.
  • #3 WATER

    Let's take a hydration test: Drink 24 ounces of water. If you don't need to use the restroom within 45 minutes, the bottom line is that you are dehydrated. Dehydration hinders workouts and significantly influences metabolism. Research proves that a dehydrated individual tends to have a slightly lower metabolism. Another good thing about water is that it lowers aldosterone levels in the body to liberate excess water trapped beneath the skin. Drinking very cold water can cause a mild increase in calorie burning, as the body has to "warm" the water to its core temperature, and that process actually burns calories.
  • #4 CASEIN

    Milk-derived protein is another option for fat loss. In one controlled study, overweight police officers were put on a 12-week weight-training regimen coupled with restricted calorie intake. Some of the subjects consumed a commercial milk protein formula composed primarily of casein; some consumed whey protein. Total daily protein intake was the same for both groups. The officers who had a daily dose of 1.5 grams of casein per kilogram of bodyweight added more muscle than the other test group. These results indicate that including casein-based protein in your diet can increase your muscle mass and boost your metabolism.

    These fats, found in fish and in supplement form, just might be the missing link in the get-ripped equation. This was demonstrated by a study of 63 overweight men and women who, every day for four months, ate fish high in omega-3s. They lost more weight than a comparable group who ate fish only once per week. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in salmon and other cold-water fish, are used in the formation of muscle glycogen — and the more carbs you store as glycogen, the less carbs you store as fat.

Protein Bonanza

Here are five ways to increase the digestibility and absorption of your protein drinks:

  • Increase soluble fiber intake. Your digestive system requires about six weeks to fully adapt to the changes fiber will produce. Your first goal is to make sure that your gut morphology (structure) enhances digestive capacity, which improves digestion and absorption of highly motile liquid protein meals. You have to literally "develop" your digestive tract.
  • It's important to increase your fiber intake gradually in order to avoid potential stomach upset, gas and diarrhea. Concentrate on eating cleaner by including more natural whole foods, particularly veggies and fruits, in your diet. Make sure that you have at least one serving with every meal except your immediate postworkout drink/meal. Commercial fruit juices don't count (few contain any fiber), and, in fact, are not what you should be drinking, except perhaps as part of a postworkout meal.
  • Eat five to eight servings of veggies (plus some fruit) every day. If you're not getting at least 25 grams (g) of fiber (including both soluble and insoluble) a day, then add a fiber supplement.
  • Got milk? Then drink it! Another solution is to use whole milk instead of nonfat milk, water or juice. The fat content of whole milk, along with the micellar casein in it, slows motility, which gives your GI tract more time to digest and absorb the protein.
  • Rice is nice. Another solution, which is one of our favorites, is to simply eat some steamed rice — one cup or so — with your protein shake. This method is especially effective when consuming large amounts of hydrolyzed whey protein or whey concentrate. Manufacturers of protein powders and ready-to-drink products are increasingly adding rice oligodextrins to their formulas in order to impart increased protein digestibility.
  • Timing is key. Whey protein is perhaps the best supplement to consume immediately after training — better than meat or casein. Why? Because whey protein is digested and absorbed quickly, and your body's ability to efficiently utilize a concentrated flux of amino acids is greatest following training. Add to this the high branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) content of whey protein and the fact that BCAAs are best repleted following exercise rather than during it, and you have the ideal postworkout protein.
