Bodybuilding is an intense sport involving a lot of motivation and determination to succeed. Receiving the wrong advice, or taking the wrong path can lead to you falling behind your competition and ultimately failing in your goal. What you need to start off doing is mentally preparing yourself to be physically and mentally exhausted a large percent of the time. Achieving the body you see on TV all the time is not easy, and there is no quick fix that will see you reach your goal with ease.
What you will no doubt constantly hear, is the three main things a bodybuilder must focus on to achieve his goal. These are as follows:
It doesn’t take a genius to know this would be a very high priority. Strength Training would involve a tailored weights program specifically designed for your needs. There’s not much point following a program that’s designed for someone else because you may need to focus on an area that may not be someone else’s priority. This is where many people new to bodybuilding fail before they even begin.
This is considered the most important thing of bodybuilding by many who have the results to show off. A good bodybuilder diet typically consists of a small amount of the correct fats with a higher focus on carbs and proteins. This diet would typically be used to lose fat, and put on muscle in place of it.
Most people would assume the more work you put into it, the more you get out of it. But rest is equally as important as strength training and the correct nutrition. The growth of your muscle’s will occur as you’re resting not as you’re lifting weights… so to exhaust yourself in the gym all day is useless because you’re not giving your muscle’s the rest they need.
Bodybuilding is not an easy hobby or career path. If you want to take it on you will need help along the way. What I’d recommend (and, many pros would agree) is this site. In my opinion this will set you well on your way.
