comment Is increasing resistance the only possibility to build more muscle mass?
Wow, thanks a lot for this great overview!

So what is better to build muscle-mass which can be seen? 1-5 reps or 8-12? I guess 8-12, right? And even with this number of reps the muscles will get stronger so that one can (normally) increase weights, won't they?

Thanks for this comment, Meade, I've added some details above :)

comment Best timing and amount of protein intake for building mass
So one doesn't really know anything, the best tip is simply to take in as much protein as one can throughout the whole day. Right? Basically, I just wanted to know if it's a good thing to take in 60g protein before sleep or if I should change it to 30g before sleep and 30g after waking-up?!

comment Best timing and amount of protein intake for building mass
Thanks a lot! So what I want to know is whether 60g of protein at once ir useful or just too much and not completely used. And does one need protein throughout the whole day or are muscles built only at night?

Ok, thank you. So doing 5 reps per set will cause more mass gaining than 10 reps per set? Cause 8-12 is what they told me in my gym. Could it be the case that I trained too much? I've been training each muscle group twice per weak.

Thanks :-) Is hydration drinking very much? So you suggest a lot of protein all day long? No special timing?

What are your sources for this answer? The book? What about the next morning (after training) - does one need much protein then? Or just carbs to get power?

Thank you! I don't want to burn more fat so I only care about protein intake to build more mass.

Thank you very much for this detailed answer :-) Why can't I disrupt homeostasis with constant weights? As long as this is all I can do, it should fatigue the muscles and cause them to compensate, shouldn't it? I always to 8-12 reps. If I'm able to do more, I increase the weights.

So you suggest bridging those plateaus with longer-lasting breaks? The problem is: I pause for 1-3 minutes between sets yet, anyway.

Actually, it's due to a lack of strength. I'm not able to lift the weights as often as I want.
