I want to welcome you to Muscle Building Foods Headquarters.

I appreciate you stopping by. I am here to guide you through your fitness and life journey. I have made many mistakes along the way so let me educate you so you don’t make the same mistakes that I did.

My goal is to provide valuable information for everyone regardless of experience level. I want this site to provide value to someone who hasn’t worked out before as well as gym rats.

If you want to start improving yourself by eating healthy and exercising, you’ve come to the right place.

 


Why Muscle Building Foods?

I believe that building muscle and strength are the key to being healthy.

People work out for many different reasons. Most goals fall into 3 broad categories; building muscle, burning fat and improving performance. Increasing the amount of muscle you have is the key to reaching all of these goals.

Getting the proper nutrition is the biggest factor in determining whether you build the muscle to reach your goal or not. I believe it is important to get the best possible foods, at the right time and in the right amounts.

Whether you are lifting heavy, moderate or light, I think it is necessary to have a kick butt workout every time you lift. I also think going heavy every once in a while is a good thing because increasing strength helps every health goal.

Rest and recovery is what brings it all together. The workouts will break down your body and let it know it needs to build itself back bigger and stronger. The nutrition provides the building material for your body to increase it’s muscle, but the rest is when the actual building takes place.


 

Where to go:

I write about all sorts of topics related to nutrition, workouts and anything else I find interesting about health. When I write I try to make it interesting for everyone regardless of what they want to accomplish, but some topics can be pretty specific and that can make it hard to find exactly what interests you. I’ve sorted them  into popular categories below.

Muscle Building Foods Headquarters is Not:

A place for BS. Everything I write about is either from personal experience or research. There is no bro-science here unless there is some evidence to back it up. I question everything, even things that I’ve heard for years. There are a lot of BS marketing schemes out there and I’ll do my best to help you separate what works and what is a waste of time.

For people looking for a quick fix: If you are looking for real, long-lasting results it will come from changing bad habits and creating a healthy lifestyle transformation. I am full in support of working hard toward getting what you want. Burning fat usually happens the quickest, but getting big and strong takes time.
