The speed of your muscle growth is a complex equation that includes genetics, diet, training, sleep and many other factors. But there are hacks you can use to help your body grow faster.

Here are some tips for speeding up your muscle growth:

1. Eat More Calories

The most important way to increase the rate of muscle growth is to eat more calories than you burn every day. Don’t try to eat as much as possible without gaining fat. Instead, eat a slight surplus of about 10-15% over time and watch the scale go up.

2. Train More Often

Training muscles more often helps them grow faster because it increases the amount of stress placed on them during each workout. This stress causes microscopic tears in the muscle tissue which leads to increased protein synthesis and improved recovery between workouts — both key factors in increasing muscle size over time.

3. Use High Reps

High-rep training is one of the best ways to build muscle mass quickly because it places greater stress on the target muscles (and other muscles targeted by stabilizers) than lower reps do, leading to greater protein synthesis and improved recovery between sets or workouts.

4. Use Lower Reps With Weights

Lifting heavy weights (80%+) helps stimulate more muscle growth than lighter weights (70%-80%). This is because heavier weights cause more damage to the muscles, which stimulates greater muscle growth through an increase in protein synthesis (the process by which cells repair damaged tissues). Heavy weight training also increases the release of testosterone and growth hormone

5. Get More Sleep

Sleep is one of the most important factors in recovery because it’s when your body repairs itself and builds muscle tissue. If you’re not getting at least seven hours of sleep per night, then your body isn’t getting enough rest to recover from the day’s activities. Sleep deprivation also causes hormonal imbalances that can prevent muscle growth by slowing down testosterone production or increasing cortisol levels (which inhibits protein synthesis).
