Many beginner athletes and bodybuilders, in the first place, are interested in one question: how much can I pump? But to answer it is not so easy even for professional coaches and athletes. It all depends not only on your efforts, but also on many other factors, which will be discussed in this article.
First of all, it is necessary to understand that training on a particular program does not always give the desired result. For example, training on the program of the famous actor Jason Statham, you should not expect to get exactly the same figure as this Hollywood star. And the thing is not in your desire and desire, but in genetics. The organism of each person is arranged in a unique way, and the program that is ideal for the collection of muscle mass from one athlete can not give absolutely no result in ten others.
In this case, you will have a reasonable question: how to pump up quickly, if the world has a huge number of programs for muscle mass? First, let's determine what type of training is best for you. And for this it is necessary to determine your somatotype.
The type of addition is determined most simply by two characteristics - the volume of the wrist and the proportions of the body. For how much you can pump, in the first place will depend on your somatotype.
1. Ectomorph. For this type of addition, rather narrow wrists are characteristic (the wrist can be grasped without any problems by the other hand) and approximately the same volume of hips, waist and chest (this variant is often denoted by the letter "H"). Ectomorphs usually gain only two or three kilograms of muscle mass per year, but each muscle will immediately be very embossed, which will greatly affect the beauty of the figure.
2. The endomorph. This type of addition combines people who are prone to a set of excess weight in the form of fat deposits. Endomorph is unlikely to be able to clasp his wrist with his arm, and his waist circumference is likely to exceed the volume of the chest and hip circumference (indicated by the letter "O"). For how much can you pump the endomorph? The increase in muscle mass in this type of addition is the largest - up to ten kilograms of muscle mass per year. But the huge disadvantage is that the endomorphs will need to "draw" the muscles, after they are pumped up. And to add to their figure of relief, people with this type of addition should think about burning excess weight and keeping their shape in shape with the help of proper nutrition.
3. The mesomorph. A real golden mean. Mesomorphs do not even need to think about how much time can be pumped, since the muscle mass grows rather quickly, and it takes much less time to "draw" them than in endomorphs. Usually people with this type of addition are quite problematic about their wrist, and their chest circumference is about the same as that of the hips, but considerably exceeds the waist circumference (indicated by the letter "V").
But do not be happy or upset because of your type of addition ahead of time. He does not always determine with absolute accuracy the amount of time for which one can get pumped and start to be proud of an ideal figure. In many respects, the rate of muscle mass gain will depend on which fabric, first of all, is prone to take calories - muscle or fat. In addition, the increase in muscle mass affects the level of testosterone (the higher it is, the faster it will get pumped up) and the metabolism in the body.
After you determine your type of addition, try experimenting with programs for this type, and then you can choose for yourself the optimal training system that will help you gain muscle mass as quickly as possible and look much prettier than before.
