Makua Frey has written a great article in which she provides tips on how to build muscle through exercise and clean eating. She recommends:
"Add HIIT. High intensity interval training is a great way to burn body fat in a short period of time. Is it easy? No. But it is effective. If you are healthy enough for vigorous physical activity, incorporate one high intensity workout into your schedule this week. As your level of fitness improves, try to add one or two more sessions to your schedule each week.
Do strength training. No, you don't need to become a body builder, but when you created your balanced workout program last week, you should have incorporated at least 2-3 days of body weight or weight lifting activities to build muscle. Make sure those workouts stay a priority.
Learn to make smoothies. After you complete your workout, be sure that you refuel effectively. A smoothie is a great way to do that, as long as you keep the calorie count in check and include plenty of healthy protein."
