Almost everything in this world is based on cycles and there’s no denying the fact that what goes on in the larger world around us often affects what is happening within the small worlds that exist inside of us.
A good example of this is if we are trying to build muscle naturally. In order to do so, we need to make sure that we are cycling to a certain extent but how do we do this?
In reality, there are multiple ways that cycling needs to take place in order for us to build muscle.
The first, and most common way to cycle for muscle growth is to go through various periods of time where you’re building muscle and then to go through additional periods of time where you are cutting weight. It is almost impossible for you to do both at the same time, although I’m not saying that it is totally out of the question.
That is why whenever you first start out lifting weights or if you’re stuck in a plateau, you need to decide whether you want to cut weight and get lean first or if you want to put on muscle.
Another way that you can cycle in order to build muscle in your body naturally is to change up the exercises that you are doing on a regular basis. If you continue to do the same exercises over and over again, your muscles are going to grow accustomed to them and you are not going to experience the growth that you desire.
I like to change the type of exercises that I’m doing every month, as I find that this provides me with the most benefit. If I ever feel as if I’m stuck, I will completely change my routine and work hard in order to get over that plateau.
There are a number of other types of cycling that we can do, such as changing the way that we eat regularly and even the fact that we exercise on certain days and rest on others. By making sure that we go through these different cycles regularly, we will ensure natural muscle growth and we will keep our bodies healthy as possible.
There’s no doubt about it, we need to make sure that we change just as things change around us and not only will we notice the difference in ourselves, other people notice it as well.
