Weight Building Tips


Contact Hennie for the best weight building tips


One of the cornerstones of bodybuilding is to increase your body’s muscle mass. There are many myths and truths on how to build muscle mass, but one doesn’t always know which ones are safe to follow. Here are some weight building tips that are universally accepted to increase the effectiveness of your weight training.


Maintaining proper form

As you progress through your reps, your muscles will become weaker and one can then be tempted to cheat by using other muscle groups to help with the effort. By having good form at all times you will have better results.


Warm-up and stretching

It’s a good idea to spend at least five minutes stretching your body before you start exercising. By doing this you should experience greater muscle strength and your muscles will not hurt as much.


Proper breathing

If you breathe shallowly or hold your breath while you work out you can limit the amount of oxygen to your muscles and brain. At the least it will decrease your performance and at the worst you may suffer a stroke.


Constant hydration

As a weight trainer you should avoid dehydration at all costs, you should drink water at all times, even when you are not thirsty. However, don’t drink too much water because that can lead to water intoxication which can lead to nausea, vomiting or brain swelling.

Training Schedule

Throughout my bodybuilding career I would say a big challenge for me was to prove that conditioning rules and not size.

I train 5 to 6 days per week. I prefer to train 1 muscle group per day and I totally exhaust that group with 4 - 5 exercises.
