When should I expect to see more defined muscles?

muscle definition

Depending on how often you exercise and the intensity of your workouts, give it between four to eight weeks for your muscles to get ripped. While that seems like a long time, there are other signs that show your exercise routine is working—like climbing a flight of stairs without feeling totally winded.

If you’re dead-set on unveiled toned muscles ASAP, focus on high-intensity interval training such as ripped and stripped. This combination workouts will boost your metabolic rate, which helps melt fat fast so that your muscles can be seen.

Also, make sure to give yourself off-days between workouts to let your body recover from new muscle activations; pushing yourself too far can lead to injury and slow your strength improvement—not fun.

But don’t forget about your diet. If muscle growth is your fitness goal, you have to add more protein into each meal. Those are the building blocks for strong muscles. Start by matching your daily protein intake with your weight

Your muscles need that energy to power through a tough workout and refuel afterward.
