Three Tips for the Beginner to Bodybuilding

Bodybuilding is very popular these days due to the great benefits it provides people with. You can protect yourself from a range of diseases, like cancer and type II diabetes, as well as maintain or lose weight, from doing bodybuilding. The problem is that lots of people give up give up just after they've started because they don't know what to do. This article will offer a few tips to ensure that you will want to go back to the gym day in and day out.

If you are a beginning bodybuilder it's important to realize that what you eat may be more important than your workout system. Indeed, you have to eat correctly for whatever phase you are working on. Whether you are trying to put on weight - bulk up - or are in the "cutting" stage where your goal is muscle definition, you must follow a specific diet. It is also recommended that you don't try and bulk while getting ripped. Thus, ideally, you would first go on a bulking phase, where you would eat larger amount of calories than you burn at rest. Next would come the cutting phase, where you eat less and your carbohydrates, protein, and fat would be in different proportions than during the bulk up stage. When you are on the bulking up diet plan, it's true you can eat a lot of foods, but you must eat high-quality. Find a competent plan - either on line or from a trainer at your gym - and follow it. Don't spend all your time at McDonald's or Baskin-Robbins. You need to be eating lean proteins, vegetables and complex carbohydrate A good rule of thumb is one gram of protein per pound of bodyweight.

Sometimes it's hard to keep track of which foods are good for us and which are bad. In the 1980s, fat was the culprit. Now foods that are high in carbohydrates seem to be what we should avoid. Eating more carbohydrates each day than your body needs for fuel can lead to fat build up on your body. Normally, your insulin secretion is sufficient to transport the glucose from the carbs into your muscle cells, but if you happen to be insulin resistant, or sensitive, this doesn't happen. If you are just starting out and need to lose a lot of body fat, one sure-fire way is to severely reduce your carb intake. If you already have an exercise routine you do on a daily basis, some carbohydrates are needful and beneficial. It's easy to know how many carbs to eat. After your body fat composition is below 25%, subtract the fat from your total weight to get your lean body mass. This is easy to figure out using a free BMI calculator online. Then, simply include 3/4 to 1 gram of carbohydrate in your eating plan each day per pound of lean body mass. The secret to keeping your carbs from turning into body fat is to do your strength training consistently and without fail.

When you are training, make sure you alternately train the different parts of your body from day to day. 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. Do you prefer to work out each day? Then design your training sessions to allow your muscles the time they need to recover from the previous days training. You might want to work on your abs one day and your legs the next day; or your upper body and then your gluts. Keep it varied. Another option is to do a full body workout with one day break between routines, allowing your muscles time to recover.
