Great Execution YES/ Rushed Muscle Building Diet Plans NO

A well executed and thought out workout/diet plan is better than a rushed one.


Because A rushed executed plan will just leave you with more crap to clean up. In this case, more fat to get rid of.

This actually applies to many other things you want to achieve in life too. I won’t go into what those could be here, because I really do want to stick to the topic at hand.

But the key point here is that you need to be diet precise, while at the same time tracking your…

  • Appearance
  • Bodyweight
  • Rate of metabolism

Along the way…

You will need to do this because everyone’s bodies/ and rates of metabolism will vary. Yes, it’s all good following websites like Stay-Fit Bug and consuming all of this written information that’s provided. But you also need to step away from the computer screen and track what happens in your real day-to-day life. Which is of course what I tell you in the Build a 6 pac: from flab to flat ebook.

The other reason you need to be diet precise is because of how the body works. Speed is not in your favor, hence why a rushed plan in order to build muscle fast is a flawed plan.

Great execution

Is what’s need… every time!

Note that down, because it will apply to many things in your life along side living the fitness lifestyle.

How the body works

The body doesn’t respond well to rapid changes. Overnight success doesn’t exist. If you try to do this, by stacking your guts full of food everyday (5-6000 calories per day), the chances are you’ll start poking Mr. Insulin in the butt, causing him to get all fiery and start spiking. Your muscle receptors will start to get sick of this (The folks who control how much food goes into your muscles. Kind of like the bouncers at the front door of a club) and they’ll eventually shut the doors. This is when food gets stored as fat, which is the usual normal bodily process, but in this case, more often than usual (Can lead to diabetes in the most serious of cases). So moderation will always be in your favor.

The rule

To increase body mass you need to consume more calories than you use.
But only what your body needs in order to put on muscle (250-500 calories above maintenance levels).

If you consume more than what you need, you will run the risk of putting on extra fat, which of course kills your muscle definition, making you look fat.

And which of course defeats the whole objective of this article…

Building Muscle For Bulk Is Un-sexy/ Build ‘Ripped’ Muscles Instead

Plan, execute and lap up the results.

  • 6 months of planned execution = success
  • 3 months of rush + 6 months (Or more) of fat clean up = failure (9 months or more)

And I can tell you now, trying to shift fatty weight and get cut again is not easy. In fact, it sucks… big time! But you already knew that, didn’t you? Of course you did, otherwise you wouldn’t have stumbled upon this article.
