Vitamins: For strengthening of muscles vitamins are necessary. Vitamin D plays an important role in the development of muscles. A very few food sources offers vitamin D. Sun is the chief source of vitamin D. The main function of Vitamin D is to regulate the absorption of calcium by muscles and bones thus helping in the strengthening of bones and muscles.

Proteins and carbohydrates: Proteins are required for the development of new muscle tissues and repairing of old one for development of stronger muscles. The requirement of protein diet differs from person to person depending upon the type of strength training program you have adopted. Generally bodybuilders and athletes require very high protein diet for muscles tissues recovery and adequate performance. Generally the professional athletes and bodybuilders require 2 times more quantity of protein than normal people. The conventional sources of protein are egg, pulses, and meat and Soya products. The proteins are required by strength training performers or the non exercisers because it contains a large chain of amino acid which is essential for the construction of muscle cells for big sized muscles. Insulin is a hormone that is essential for amino acids for entering inside muscle cells thereby aiding in the process of protein synthesis which is necessary for the development of muscle tissues.. The secretion of insulin occurs because of the carbohydrates. If you are taking a high carbohydrate diet then it drives more amino acids inside muscle cells which helps in the formation of muscle tissues and these healthier tissues are responsible for getting a muscular body.

Fats : An adequate strength training diet must contain less amount of fat otherwise it can accumulate fat on the body instead of making it muscular. An adequate diet should only contain 30 percent of carbohydrates along with proteins and carbohydrates.

Creatine: Creatine is an essential component for the strengthening of muscles. Creatine is an amino acid based component thus it is beneficial in the development of lean muscles. Creatine is a substance that is found naturally in the skeletal muscle of body. A normal person requires 4 gram of protein per day. However, if some one is doing strength training workout then his requirement for creatine increases. Out of 4 grams 2 grams of protein is constituted by the body while remaining two grams are obtained from other food sources. The main sources of creatine are fish and red meat.
