is also important for muscle building. The basic nutrients for muscle growth are proteins
. Especially beginners who want to build muscles quickly are dependent on a sufficient protein supply: Recommended is between 1.3 and 1.5 grams of protein daily per kilogram body weight (for advanced strength athletes up to 2 grams of protein per kilogram body weight). Optimal is a combination of animal proteins from fish or low-fat dairy products and vegetable proteins from soya, cereals, legumes and nuts. Complex carbohydrates
provide you with energy and increase your performance for strength training. Make sure you eat wholesome, preferably unprocessed food that provides your body with sufficient fibre, vitamins and minerals. These nutrients are mainly found in whole grain products and fresh fruit and vegetables.
