    Whenever you think of building your muscles you always come to think of building your strength. One of the fastest ways to build muscles is through strength building or weight lifting.

    When doing weight lifting you need to start with free weights first. Just get a try which suits you. Of course more weights means more stress and more stress means more workout for your muscle and more workout means more build up of muscle.  When weight lifting you need to make sure that you can carry those weights in perfect form after some sets. If you think you can’t carry it on perfect form after some sets that means that’s your limitation. It’s better to carry weights in perfect form rather than just carrying it trying to tire yourself out. Carrying weights in perfect form means that your stressing your muscles at it’s most effective way.

    Using weights is much better than using machines since it’s a whole lot cheaper and more functional and versatile. You can use it on different routines to build your muscles more effectively.

    When weight lifting make sure that you observe proper posture and body alignment. You need to find your center of gravity for this to make sure that no injury might happen.
    Do reps continuously until you’re at your limit.

    After doing your reps make sure to give time for your muscles to rest. Resting your muscles is also a way of making sure that your muscles build up. Muscles build up on resting rather than on training.

    Lastly, when doing strengthening exercises make sure that you eat what your body needs. A balanced diet for someone working out. That means lots of protein, minimum carbs and fats.

    You can also throw in some full body workouts to make sure that your body’s muscles are built equally.

    A good combination of workout, diet and rest is the most effective way in unleashing the true form of your muscles.

    You're better off publishing this as a hub.

    This is a hub post, not a forum post.  Accidental, perhaps?
