Body building refers to the sport and form of body modification involving intensive muscle hypertrophy exemplified by that exhibited by body builders.
Every guy wants a classic body-builder physique. However, they may not always know how to go about achieving it. Professional bodybuilders have the time and sometimes have been blessed with the genetics to isolate every muscle and hit it with routine work out sets that enable them to achieve their desired body physique. However, for most individuals having full time jobs, families and genetic make ups unlike those of body building professionals, luck is not on their side and it is for this reason they require the best information they can get in trying to attain their dream body.
The first thing you need to know about bodybuilding is this that it requires patience, consistency and a good diet. Once you understand the above the next step is developing a workout or exercise plan for beginners that will set you on the path to attaining your goals without rushing in and injuring yourself in your impatience to attain results. Before starting any work out routine, it is important to make sure that you have conducted stretching exercises so as to prevent damaging your body muscles and straining your tendons when you begin.
The idea behind a beginner’s bodybuilding routine is to steadily help your muscles get used to the weight lifting intensity and the physical toll that it will have on your body during and after the workout. Unlike the advanced routine, beginners are required to work their entire bodies in one day. This is done so that your body can develop the muscle foundation before you move onto advanced routines.
A basic beginner’s routine consists of three sets of flat bench press for your chest, three sets of 10-8-6 pull ups for your back, three sets of 8-6-4 barbell presses in a low controlled form for you shoulders, three sets of 10-8-6 dumbbell curls for your biceps, three sets of 10-8-6 dumbbell curls for your biceps, four sets of 10-8-6-4 squat for your legs and four sets of 10-8-6-4 bench squats for your triceps. A resting period of about 1 to 2 minutes is required between each interval for all sets mentioned. Four sets of crunches should be done in intervals of 25-20-15-15 having 30 minute brakes between each set. These routines should be repeated between 2 day interval brakes in the week giving your body its required rest and recuperation time.
It is important for beginners to understand that the trick to attaining their desired body physique is taking it slow and being patient and consistent with workout routines, while at the same time maintaining a good healthy diet. Rest and recuperation within and between routines is also imperative and should not be overlooked. Following this advice will allow you to attain your desired body physique in a healthy manner that will leave you feeling and looking good.
