London: If you are on a mission to get rid of body flab, try out strength training and nutritious snacks.

Here are a few tips to help you increase your muscle mass, reports a website:

* Strength training: It is one of the best ways to increase muscle mass and burn fat. If you regularly incorporate it into your workouts, it will help to create a leaner and more defined figure.

* Eat after training: After training, you must eat a nutritious snack rich in carbohydrates and proteins. Chicken and sweet potato is a good option.

* Combine strength training with cardio exercises: Cardio gets your blood pumping. Since your blood delivers oxygen to your muscles, the more efficient your blood flow, the more oxygen your muscles will receive. This will promote muscle growth.
