Bodybuilding Tips For Newcomers

People who just start out on a bodybuilding training course often set unrealistic goals. They are not to blame since there are so many get quick muscles and body ads which promise a world-class body in only a few weeks. Fact is that bodybuilding is a sport of commitment.

To put on tremendous weight overnight is not recommended. You will have to eat like crazy and most of the foods consumed will not be transformed into muscle, but rather flab around the waist and cholesterol that will build up in your arteries.  As such read up as much as you can about bodybuilding and do read what the experts say. When talking about experts, the idea is to get advice from bodybuilding professionals who have gained reputations for excellent training.

Once you have set the realistic bodybuilding goals, stick to them. If you only reach a goal half-way, you still haven’t crossed the finish line. This brings up the next point. In bodybuilding there is never a once off finish line. You cannot hope to obtain one goal and then run on the same fuel forever. To stay the same, means to stagnate. Stagnation means moving backwards. As such you should always have your next goal for bodybuilding in place.

People train better when they have goals. It is also true for bodybuilding. No champion won the title from riding the wind. To win the gold medals and trophies means putting in more to get results. If you plan to train in bodybuilding for one or two hours a week, it is super fine if your goals are not to win the next competition. If however, you want to get first place, you need to train harder, longer, and more disciplined.

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.
