Tips On How To Become A Bodybuilder The Right Way

If you want to become a bodybuilder the first thing you need to do is to join a well equipped gym for bodybuilding training. Make sure there is a professional bodybuilding trainer such as Hennie Kotze who has a proven track record of training people to become bodybuilders.

The next thing to do if you planning on becoming a bodybuilder is to read up on nutrition, training, and competition requirements. By for instance, researching all the requirements for regional, provincial, and national bodybuilding classes you will know from the outset what is expected from you. This will help you to focus your training, diet, and lifestyle.

If you want to become a world-class bodybuilder you will need to set reachable goals and stick to those goals. Someone training without purpose will not last long. You need role models and goals to achieve. Also build a support network. It is rather difficult to train alone day in and day out without someone to motivate you, help you to be disciplined, and support you. The best place to find this kind of support is at the bodybuilding gym where others also train to become bodybuilders.

Eating To Become A Bodybuilder

Nutrition is one of the key elements for successful training. Your diet will change when you are not competing. As such it is recommended that you read the nutrition section of our website where you will also find eating plans.  You need to increase calorie intake, but must ensure that the calories are not junk. Protein must form a major part of your diet as protein is the muscle fuel. Consider bodybuilder supplements such as the ones listed under nutrition at our website. If you are unsure of which one to use simply contact Hennie for advice.

Bulking Up Before Cutting Down

It is rather difficult to bulk up and lose fat at the same time. The best route to go is to follow a healthy diet and train to build muscle. The next step in becoming a bodybuilder is to lose the fats which came with the bulking up.

The final tip for someone who wants to become a bodybuilder is to stop dreaming and start training. View the videos on the website and contact Hennie to help you become a world class bodybuilder.

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.
