Training for muscle and strength is a nuanced topic, and there are many variables to consider. But, so long as you cover the below criteria, you should be okay:
● Train all of your muscles;
● Train in a variety of repetition ranges (5 to 12; 12 to 15; 15 to 25);
● Focus on getting stronger over time;
● Give your muscles enough time to recover (at least 72 hours before training them again).
3. You’re Doing Too Much Cardio
Many people do everything right, yet can’t seem to put on much weight precisely because they either do too much cardio, move around a lot throughout the day or have an incredibly high Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT).
So, it’s essential to be objective and look at your daily life. If you’re doing too much cardio, cut back to no more than 30-60 minutes per week. If you tend to move around a lot during the day, try limiting that a bit. If that’s not possible, increase your caloric intake further to make up for it.
