Important Information for Those New to Bodybuilding
There are many benefits of taking part in bodybuilding, which is the reason for it becoming popular. Bodybuilding can help you lose unwanted weight as well as keep depression away. You can also lower the risk of getting devastating diseases such as diabetes and cancer. However, many people give up soon after they begin because they don't have the right information and make mistakes. Below are a number of tips that'll keep you motivated enough to go back to the gym each and every day.
Your diet can actually play a more important role in the results you achieve as a bodybuilder than your exercise system. In reality, you won't get the "ripped" muscle definition results you want if you don't eat the proper foods. The same is true when you are in your "bulk up" phase. You have to eat right. It is also recommended that you don't try and bulk while getting ripped. For the bulking stage, which is where you start, you definitely want to eat more calories than your metabolism needs when your body is at rest. Calorie consumption during this phase is generally 20 times what your body weight is. So, if you weigh 200 pounds, you would need to consume 4000 calories a day. The reduced calorie "cutting" stage comes after the bulk up phase and it's the more challenging of the two phases you must go through. You cut way back on your carbs - about 1 gram of carbohydrates per pound of body weight - with the exception of fresh fruits. Remember, though, that a bulking diet should be clean for the best results, in other words it can't consist of burgers and ice cream. Complex carbohydrates, fruit, vegetables, good fats, and lean protein are the main ingredients for a good bulking up diet. If you weigh 240 pounds, a good method for figuring out how much protein you need is to figure 1 gram per pound of body weight or, in this case, 240 grams of protein. A new concept that you might not be aware of is the fact that it's necessary, and recommended by professional bodybuilders, that you eat every two or three hours. The exception is, of course, when you are asleep and, to protect your body during sleep, you should have a bedtime snack of some high quality, long-lasting protein. This will keep your metabolism fired up, which is the goal. It will become sluggish if you don't keep your body 'fueled' frequently. By eating at least 5 meals a day, you don't give your body the chance to think that there is a famine, which means that it will begin running more efficiently. After your metabolism is slowed down and your body is consuming fewer calories to maintain your vital systems, it will take the calories from the food you have given it and store it as fat - to be called up later when more fuel is required. Another recommendation from successful sports nutritionists and bodybuilders is to eat well-rounded meals. Don't just eat, for example, protein. Have your carbs, fat, and protein at each meal.
Make sure you change which area of your body you are training each day. Don't work on the same body part for two consecutive days. The reason to alternate which part of your body you train is to allow the most recently trained part a chance to rest and repair. This is what causes growth. In order to protect your muscles and allow them the time they need to recuperate from a training session today, do not plan to exercise the same body area tomorrow. Give your muscles the time they need to repair and grow. That's the whole purpose. You can train everyday if you prefer to do so, just do it wisely. A good routine would be to rotate between the muscles in your upper body one day and then concentrate on specific muscles in your lower body the next day. Just go back and forth between the different areas and you will benefit the most. If you don't want to train every day, but would prefer every other day, consider the increasingly popular full-body workouts. You rest for a day after each training session to allow your muscles the time they need to heal. You will find several excellent videos on YouTube to show you how to do these routines.
