If you are looking to build muscle and have been searching for the best or even quickest solution, there’s a good chance that you’ve come across many different suggestions. Though there are some tried and true ways to promote building muscle, every person’s body is different and what works for one person may not always work for another. To promote your chance of success, you may have wondered, do I need a personal trainer to build muscle? Though you can certainly build muscles on your own, a personal trainer just might be the boost you need to get started or may offer the support you need to make the progress you’ve been working for.

At AESTALLION, we know that working one-on-one with a personal trainer is one of the best ways to ensure you meet your goals and build muscle. We offer our clients targeted support with reaching their goals based on their unique body, current fitness level and prior fitness experience. We believe that working with a trainer is one of the best ways to build muscle as a trainer can ensure the efforts you put in will give you the results you are looking for. If you are struggling to build muscle, we suggest reaching out to a personal trainer for help. We also understand that personal training isn’t necessarily suitable for everyone.

Group classes or semi-private personal training is one alternative to personal training that can help you build muscle. If personal training isn’t in your budget, give a strength-based, results-driven group class a try. Also, check out our tips below on how you can work towards building muscle and achieving your body recomposition goals.

How to Build Muscle on Your Own

Working with a personal trainer helps you get the results you are looking for faster as they offer targeted and results-driven support. There are also many things you can do on your own to help build muscle. Below are a few tips we suggest when looking to build muscle at home or when working out on your own.

Focus on strength training – though cardiovascular exercises have their place; they aren’t the exercise you should be focusing on if your goal is to build muscle. You don’t need to eliminate cardio completely, but instead focus on strength-building exercises such as lifting weights to build muscle. Lifting heavier weights and more completing repetitions are great goals to focus on when it comes to building muscle.

Incorporate more protein in your diet – carbs, fats and proteins are the basis of what you need to thrive. But when you are working towards specific goals that involve building muscle, there’s a good chance that you’re going to want to boost the amount of protein you consume. When it comes to diet, working with a nutritionist can be helpful but many personal trainers can also support you with setting a suitable protein intake goal.

Eat more, not less – a caloric deficit is something that is talked about frequently as it relates to weight loss but when you are looking to build muscle, fewer calories is not the goal. As you train harder and lift heavier weights your body will need more, not less, calories to thrive. Be sure that you are eating enough and are giving your body the fuel it needs to build muscle.

Get enough rest – it’s hard for your body to do anything well without enough sleep. Additionally, your muscles need time to repair and build stronger as you train. Remember that running on empty won’t get you where you want to go. We always suggest prioritizing sleep and adequate rest when helping our clients to achieve their goals. Try to ensure that you are not overtraining and do your best to get enough sleep too. Your body will thank you for it.

Use supplements with support and education – supplements such as creatine and HMB can be helpful tools when you are trying to build muscles. However, it is important to know how to use them properly to achieve the best possible results. A personal trainer or nutritionist specialized in sports nutrition may be your best bet for helping you understand what, how much, and when to take supplements to support your goals.

Though you don’t absolutely need a personal trainer to achieve your goals of building muscle, a personal trainer can certainly help you achieve your goals faster. If you have been trying to build muscle but have been unsuccessful it may be worth considering working with a trainer to ensure your efforts aren’t for nothing. At AESTALLION, we have helped countless clients achieve their goals and are enthusiastic about helping you reach yours.
