So you start out strong and consistent. You’re working steadily for a couple of weeks, but after giving it all you have, pushing your body at the gym day after day, slamming so much protein you gag on the thought of eating another protein bar or piece of chicken, you find that nothing has changed — no new muscle and if anything a little more fat.

What are the Steps Necessary to Build Upper Body Muscle Fast?

Before getting into specific muscle-building topics, there are three fundamental ingredients in achieving the results you want when you build upper body muscle. And these ingredients are critical to attaining muscle-building results. Skip one of these ingredients, and you will never get out of the starting blocks to build any muscle.

3 Key Ingredients to Achieve Results

The three keys to your success are:

Mental Attitude

Keep in mind your goal in order to help you stay focused, committed, diligent, and persistent. Work hard, work smart, and never give up! This same mindset applies when you’re working in the gym. Guys, it’s not social hour…at least not if you’re trying to build muscle.

When you’re in the gym, you need to keep your mind on your workout, follow the rules to exercising when it comes to rest periods between sets, smart lifting, and be consistent with it.

Eating Right

Your nutrition is the second biggest piece of the puzzle. Cut down of high-fat foods, don’t overdo the protein, (yes you can consume too much protein), and add extra calories in the form of complex carbs to your daily diet.

Protein doesn’t build muscle, but post-workout yes. It helps to refuel and restore muscle fiber.

But when it comes to the energy, you need to do the weight work in the gym, that my friend is coming from your complex carbs.

Exercising CORRECTLY

If you want real success from your effort to build upper body muscle fast, you have to consistently perform the right exercises at the right intensity, always keeping in mind proper form. And despite what you may have heard, that even includes cardio.

Look, I’ve have seen it time and time again. You go in the gym sloppily pushing up the weight and throwing it down. Your muscles aren’t getting any work that way. In fact, they are just laying back and playing it cool because they know, heck momentum is doing the job, so they don’t have to. You’re cheating yourself out of results that way!

But, it’s up to you. If you want to spend your time in the gym and not get any results or get little results in the longest time frame possible, then go for it because that’s up to you.

But, if you do want real results, follow these 3 steps to make sure you go from a gym zero to a gym hero and get the other gym rats’ attention.

Build Upper Body Strength and Muscle – The Secret to BUILDING BIGGER BICEPS

AVOID the “no curl, bicep curl!” Don’t bend or extend at the hips. Use the bicep muscles solely to lift the weight.

Grab your weight.

Firmly plant your feet on the floor with a slight bend in your knees.

Lock your hips down and elbows to your side, (don’t move them).

Maintaining a tall, erect position, lift the weight.

Lower it to a count of the count.

Contract the tricep in order to get full extension of the bicep. Repeat for a rep count of 8.

(SIDE NOTE: you may have to lower your weight since now your doing the exercise right without cheating) Your biceps will feel this! Get ready for the pump.

What to Eat to Build Upper Body Muscle and Strength

You may not believe this, but when it comes to building upper body muscle and strength, your nutrition habits play an even bigger role than your workout, especially as a skinny man.

In fact, if you’re not applying the proper nutrition habits, after all your hard work on the weights, you could see little to no progress or actually be losing more muscle than your gaining.


It’s absolutely true, and there is science to back up that fact.

So my question is, are you eating correctly to build upper body muscle?
