2.SHOULD I LIFT HEAVY WEIGHTS TO GAIN MUSCLE ?
This is a mistake that each one of us do and/or did, after hitting the gym for a long time, we think that we know all about it, we think that we are the best, the strongest, at that moment, you have to reconsider and reboot your system and start from scratch. Lifting at your capacity is critical when it comes to gaining muscles, thus don't ever go above and/or below your capacity when you lift weights, i.e. lifting heavy weights needs to be done smartly, especially in the compound movements

Eating is the keystone to gain muscles, don't waste your time looking for a magical diet that will give you muscles fast, it doesn't exist, it depends on your metabolism, body type, and other factors regarding the muscle growth, you can't make the cells grow faster than the normal natural rate. Thus, stick with the basics, by eating organic foods, and having a healthy intake of proteins, carbs, fats, and all the necessary nutrients. The protein is the star of all diets, so here is some numbers to help you calculate your personal needed intake; for a grown individual, 0.8 grams per kilogram ( 0.36 grams per pounds ) is enough to keep the one alive, when it comes to a bodybuilder who wants to gain muscles, the pattern it needs to be followed, is to increase that amount by 30%, then see the outcome and the impact on your body, then increase it by 10% each time you feel the need to.
