10 Ways to Build Muscle Faster

See big results by making small tweaks to your training, diet, and lifestyle.

Just because you’re not training today doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat big. Your off days are when most of your muscle growth takes place—the recovery phase—so it makes sense to keep plenty of nutrients on hand for the body to make the most of.
