hello...i like working out in a gym, i want to get my body huge and go beyond its limit. i do regular workout three times a week, i've been working out for 7 months. i noticed that my body isn't getting so huge. i've paid attention on my diet, ate enough proteins and carbs. i got some information told me that including squat and deadlift will make my body huge, is it true? for any of you experienced this, please help me and share with me...

Basically eat more calories roughly enough then what your body burns. Using deadlifts and squats will help tremendously in increasing your strength. Having more strength in turn translates to more muscle mass. http://deadlifts.hubpages.com/hub/Deadliftworkouts

how many hours you spend at the gym, the ideal is 60mins. or less than, to avoid burning much of your carbs and other nutriens that needed to build your muscles, are you observing your rest & recovery? you should have 9hrs. of sleep a day, try using supplement like pro-complex gainer by ON, the guys are right, concentrate on compound exercises, do HIT type workout, and observe eccentric and concentrate tempo and proper execution..squat and deadlift is a must exercise if you want to have hooping quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes and calves..also try to change your routine once in awhile to avoid plateu of your muscles..to learn more go to bodybuilding.com...hhoooohhhaaa!!! pump it up!!

If you're not growing, 99% of the time it's due to nutrition. Pay close attension to your calorie intake and log it just like you log your training program. This can be a bit tedious, I know but stick with it and you might be surprised how much more you need to consume. Using powerful compound exercises such as the deadlift, squat, bench etc will always be the most effective at building muscle. Concentrate on 3 sets, and a 6-8 rep range. Keep it heavy and the intensity high. Tom Muscle-Exercises.com

The most important exercises you must keep in mind when trying to gain size is the ones that work the core muscles and which are called compound exercses. Among them, the squat and the deadlift are ones of the most productive, if not THE most productive exercises. Incorporate them into your workout and you will see what gains you can get. Pay close attention to the exercise form on both of the exercises and train safe.
