How to get the most out of your workouts

Most men in college exercise to gain muscle mass. To increase muscle mass, two things must be done.  The first is exercise. Lifting weights or exercising with machines  increases muscle protein synthesis. The more often this is done the more  frequent muscle protein synthesis occurs, and the more muscle mass is  grown. That is why people that work more often than others have more  muscle mass. The second way to increase muscle mass is to increase  dietary protein intake. Combining exercise and increased protein intake  will work synergistically to increase muscle mass.

Located on University Avenue inside the Village Promenade Apartment Complex, we’re a modernized throwback to the old Midwestern corner tavern.

Coffee, Conversation and The Cup

Something as simple as a cup of coffee and a conversation can go a long way to grow a community and create new connections. We feel that no one should have to walk into an establishment and feel that they do not belong. Going into the seventh year of business, The Cup keeps that idea in mind as an ever-changing customer base discovers what the village has to offer Muncie residents and Ball State students alike.
