Future-Shock #26



10 December 2004

Wrestling 101 UK Scene RSS Feed | Feeds

Iíve written a number of articles over the years on training and Ďgetting biggerí. I am always keen to promote a non-steroid route to increasing muscle mass, and have gone from a tall, stringy child, to a 6í4 225lbs man. I donít expect to be able to make you taller! I can help in the gaining mass department.

In this series of writings Iím going to offer a step-by-step plan of inspiration to fellow wrestlers, students, bodybuilders and any other athletes wanting to add muscle to their frame. Letís start with one of the most used excuses/ reasons given for not getting bigger: Genetics. As I always state: Iím not a doctor, and I donít offer you anything other than credible observations from a great deal of hands on experience.

Genetics

Lets not unnecessarily over complicate things. Itís enough to know that genetics are basically the bodyís pre built Ďprogrammesí that determine many of the bodyís functions. Genetics will determine eye colour, height and countless other identifiable characteristics. Genetics also play a part in the way your body digests and takes in food. Because of this people find themselves at different ends of the spectrum when they seek to change their bodies muscle/ fat composition.

There isnít much you can do about your pre-defined height and eye colour short of wearing platform shoes and contacts lenses, but you do have greater control than you may think when it comes to adding muscle and losing fat.

For some, the body burns food at an incredible pace (High Metabolism) and they are easily spotted. These are the people everyone claims to envy Ė the ones that eat as much as they like and donít get fat. In truth, these people often look so toned or slim that they appear under nourished. They have great difficulty putting on muscle because the body burns many of the normal everyday nutrients at a phenomenal pace. Since the body doesnít seem to absorb food particularly well, and doesnít hang on to the food it does take in, these people often have a pale complexion.

For others, itís a Slow Metabolism that has the opposite effect. These people can put on weight, but they find it hard to tone up and lose excess fat. This is because the body is slow to burn the energy eaten, and subsequently ends up storing it for a time when the body needs it more.

These 2 ends of the spectrum are very real instances of where Genetics can play havoc with the body building process. But Genetics is no longer a catchall excuse for your bodyís aesthetic flaws. There are things you can do to help.

The first thing you have to do is have a good look at yourself and decide whether youíre a High or Low Metabolism person - but donít fall into the all too common cycle of excuses. If youíre overweight because you eat too much pizza you need to accept itís your diet that needs looking at first. Weíll get to that later.

If youíve tried to eat right and exercise hard, but your frame is still slight, and your not putting on any weight, it may be (amongst other reasons) because youíre burning your food intake like thereís no tomorrow. But if youíre finding it hard to lose weight despite eating smart and training, you may be in the Low metabolism group.

Itís a fact of life that the best accomplishments are never easy, and if having the perfect body were easy, there would be no awe factor watching 17 stone wrestlers throw each other around, and there would be no bodybuilding competitions. With that in mind, your going to have to accept that genetics can be an obstacle, but Iím here to tell you that genetics alone will not stop you getting the body you wish for Ė unless your back on the height thing again!

The first thing youíre going to need to understand is the bodyís need for regular protein. Protein is the bodyís muscle building ingredient, and comes from meat, pulses, dairy products and other food types. It also comes in strange looking tubs in powder form. Unless you can eat like an elephant, Iíd recommend you getting some, because youíre going to need 1.5 Ė 2g of protein per pound of bodyweight. Iím of the opinion that you cant get eat too much protein. Itís natural, (if you use a good source that supplied whey isolate) and its important to remember that you wont put on your full potential muscle mass without it.

So how can protein help me with my metabolism problems you may be wonderingÖ but youíll have to wait until next time for that!

Next FUTURE-SHOCK covers Attitude and leads into Diet.
