You see, since there is a limit to the amount of muscle the human body is capable of building (and the rate at which it can be built), that means there is also a limit to the number of calories your body is capable of using to build muscle.
Now, with your estimated calorie maintenance level in mind, the next obvious step in figuring out how many calories you need to eat per day to build muscle is figuring out what size the caloric surplus should be.
Just in case you still have any additional questions about The Muscle Building Workout Routine, here are some additional answers.
In this example, more progressive overload has occurred as you have gone up 5lbs on your bench press. However, you 8767 ll notice that the second and third sets are below your prescribed 6-8 rep range. As you just learned, this is perfectly normal. It just means your goal next time is to try to get additional reps.
More strength is more muscle. If you lift big, you get big. This is why the best bodybuilders that ever existed were strong like bulls. They knew strength equals size.
No. Muscle and fat are two separate issues. The number one thing that makes you fat is eating too much food – more calories than you burn. If you stop lifting, you’re burning less calories. And lifters usually eat more to support their training. So it’s the combination of not lifting and not eating less that turns some muscular guys into fat guys.
A problem many lifters have when training their pecs is that the anterior deltoid takes over. The anterior deltoid is also involved in transverse shoulder flexion, but its role in adduction is small.

Another reason people think you can build muscle more effectively with weight training is because it’s a lot easier to grab a heavier dumbbell than it is to progress from a crow stand or frog stand all the way to a planche pushup over the course of 68-79 months.
