Muscle Building Plans for Men and Women

Muscle: we all want it. And if we have muscle, we want to keep it. Whether you’ve just decided to get ripped or you’re looking to maintain a physique you’ve already developed, you need a gym that can help you get that killer body. West Wood Club can help you build muscle and keep muscle and it has the equipment and space you need to do it. 

The science of building muscle

A simple science underlines all the fundamentals behind building muscle. Muscle growth is dependent on the stress our muscles are put under. One of the best ways to put stress on our muscles is to apply load upon your body through lifting weights. Resistance training creates tension and this tension creates chemical changes within your muscles. This all means that when you lift weights, your muscle is breaking down, and when you rest and recover your muscle regrows bigger and stronger. 

The benefits of building muscle

Men and women lift weights because building muscle mass is one of the best ways to get that killer body so many of us are looking for. But weight lifting is not just about building sculpted pecs and massive biceps that we can show off on our social media feeds. There’s so many health benefits to lifting weights and developing muscle mass. We shred body fa. We speed up out metabolism. And we enhance heart health. There’s also a harder-to-quantify mental health boost that comes when we achieve satisfaction with our body. 

These days it’s not just men who are looking to build muscle. Women love to lift too. The benefits for men and women are pretty much the same, but weight lifting can have an added bonus for women. As women age, they develop a higher tendency for osteoporosis, which is essentially the loss of bone mineral density. Weight lifting is really important for women because when we lift weights we bolster our bone mineral density. That’s a nice bonus to developing body tone.
