Bodybuilding Workouts

How to plan effective bodybuilding workouts.

By Bodybuilding Book

You first need to clearly define your goals. Do you need to gain weight? Lose weight? Do you want strength? Muscle tone? Or maximum muscle mass? Each of the above goals requires a slightly different bodybuilding workout and diet, so know your goals and learn what methods will help you reach them.

Other factors to consider are: your age, along with your current health and fitness level. Tailor your bodybuilding workouts to your own body so you can avoid undue strains, pains and injury.

Warming up is very important, do several warm up sets and add weight to slowly work up to lifting heavy weights.

You should do a variety of exercises for each muscle group to hit your muscles from many different angles.

Force your muscles to handle progressive resistance; meaning gradually add weight over time and your muscles will become bigger and stronger.

Change your bodybuilding workouts about every six to eight weeks to avoid going stale and to keep your training new and interesting.

You will also need to include rest days because your muscles need time to recover and grow and they can only do that when you are resting. Also be sure to get at least eight hours of sleep every night to aid the rebuilding process.

A bodybuilding nutrition plan which includes a good amount of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fats will give your body the nutrients and building blocks it needs to pack on new muscle. Also using bodybuilding supplements that really work, can help take your body to the next level.

Do a lot of research and learn as much as you can about different bodybuilding workouts and routines. Learn which ones give you the best results and which ones aren't right for you. Be a student of bodybuilding and never stop learning!
