In order to build lean muscle, I follow these two simple rules: work out hard and eat clean. By doing these two things — especially eating clean — I find that I’m able to see more muscle definition. First you’re going to have to have a foundation of muscle to build off of, and then from there you can tweak your programming to really get your muscles to pop. In general, any exercise that incorporates weight will build muscle. And by doing more repetitions and sets with medium to heavy weights, you’ll be able to gain strength and lean muscle mass. These are just a few of my favourite exercises to do, but there are many more that will help reveal lean muscle.
