A common misconception is that you need to cut back on your calorie intake. This is dead wrong. Your body needs a mix of proteins, carbs, and fats to make up the macronutrients. Josh will get into what exactly macronutrients are in an upcoming podcast.
You may also not be seeing the gains you’ve been searching for because you’ve starving your body of sleep. You need at least 6 to 8 hours of sleep nightly to digest the nutrients you’ve given your body, as well as repair and refresh your body the next day.
Building muscle is a precise science. We must train in a cycles: hypertrophy, strength, and endurance. These all work in conjunction with the next, and we can’t forget one without it effecting another. Take 6 weeks to improve your muscle gains.

You may be searching for that magic supplement that you can take and overnight get the gains you’ve been looking for. That’s never going to happen. Josh, goes over the types of supplements you should be taking, and what to look for when purchasing a supplement.
Keep up your intensity. Josh says that you should be able to get through your workout in about 50 minutes and at the tops, an hour and a half, depending on your program.

Until next week, have a good week hitting the gym!
