Everybody wants to achieve that lean, muscular look. Like the picture above. You know it. But, it is not easy to achieve, as it takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Here are some tips to gain muscle mass fast.

1.) Protein

Besides water, protein is one of the most abundant substances in your body. So obviously, you need it. Not only to survive, but also to build muscle. Whey protein is the best choice as far as supplements go. It is absorbed by your body the fastest, and will repair the muscles the fastest. But you should try and get most of your protein from foods. As this provides you with the most natural form of protein. Eat lean meats like chicken, lean red meats, and fish. Also eat nuts, as these are high in protein as well.

2.) Chillax

Muscles don't grow in the gym. They grow when you are resting. So that is why in order for your muscles to grow, you must simply chillax. Take it easy on your off days, enjoy life. Maybe go to the movies, or a water park, wash that dirty car of yours, anything, just rest. Make sure you allow 48 hours of rest between working one muscle group.

3.) Stretch It Out

Stretching is very important, no matter what sport you play, or how active you are. You must stretch to maintain flexibility, and to help your muscles grow. A good thing to do, is when you are holding the weight, let the weight fully stretch the target muscle, when you are in the down position of the rep. I.e.: when you are at the beginning of a bicep curl. This will break down the muscle fully, to help with maximum muscle growth and repair. Plus you'll be as flexible as a bendy straw.

4.) Push the Limits

In order to build muscle, you must apply enough stress to your muscle to create the need for them to adjust, and grow. This is called progressive overload. So for each muscle group you are working, perform 3 sets. Within these sets perform 5 or 10 reps, each with your RM, or Rep Max. So if you choose 5 reps, then lift a weight heavy enough, so that you can only complete 5 reps with proper form. Just make sure you don't hurt yourself. 

Those 4 tips right there should help you gain muscle mass fast. Just follow them and you will see results in no time at all.
