For many men out there, most of them want to get a great summer body. Unfortunately, this body requires a ton of hard work to get to, something a lot of guys dont want to deal with. With all of the misinformation out there nowadays, it is hard to really know what works when it comes to building the best physique possible. The good news is that it is fairly straightforward. Will it be easy? Heavens no! Nothing worthwhile will most likely be easy. However, the methods of accomplishing it are very simple to understand. In fact, there are only a few parts to the equation that you must get right. In his article, I am going to be going over these three things.

1. Diet
Health and nutrition is by far the most important factor in muscle building. If you don’t hit your macros and you don’t meet your daily caloric need, you won’t grow. It is really that simple. For those looking to put on some size, take your bodyweight in pounds and multiply that by 20. That should be the number of calories that you should eat daily. Also, you should consume a gram of protein for every pound of bodyweight you have. In the morning, track your weight and write t down on a notepad. Do this for weeks and track your progress.

2. Workout
If you are looking to put on size, you should implement compound movements into your workout. These are things like squats, deadlifts, rows, and bench press. These build the most size by incorporating the most muscle groups. You can do accessory lifts but these compound exercises should be the main lifts that you do first.

3. Sleep
Try to get at least seven to eight hours of sleep a night while keeping your schedule consistent. This will keep hormones in balance, allowing your to build muscle.
