Keep your training period not to reach an hour. Make sure that your focus is on the intensity of your workout rather than the duration of it. Because there are no researches that says that marathons helps more in muscle building. Remember that you should have rest periods of at most 1 minute during your workout session and avoid having small talks with the other members of the gym.

#2 Eating should be your habit

This does not mean that you eat a lot of food. Since you burn calories more because of your fast metabolism due to your training programs. Keep in mind to have at least 5 calories dense meals per day which are taken every 2 to 3 hours apart. This makes your body to metabolize constantly and thus builds muscle more.

As what its name says, supplements only supplements what your body needs in addition to your regular food intake. Supplements does not function as weight trimmer or weight enhancer. The best supplement that you should take when hitting the gym is protein supplement and electrolyte drink such as Gatorade.
