  1. Nutrition plays a key role in the process of muscular development.
  2. It’s generally accepted that for optimal muscle growth to occur, protein intake should be rather high at around 0.7–1.0 grams per pound (1.6–2.2 grams per kg) of body weight per day.
  3. A calorie surplus of 10–20% is also beneficial for gaining muscle mass, especially for those who are not brand new to training.
