I was in the bookstore the other day and picked up this bodybuilding training guide that looked weird. It said that it could help me gain muscle but when I opened it up, all it did was show me exercises and how to do them. So I decided that I needed to write my own bodybuilding training guide. So here’s the deal, if you want to build muscle then you need to follow any type of program that follows a few important rules.
First, you need to train hard with intense compound movements like squats. Any of these movements that use multiple muscles and that use multiple joints help the body to realize more testosterone, which is your natural muscle building and bodybuilding hormone. So after you train this way your body will be primed for you to consume more calories. More muscle used meals more calories that can be consumed. This is a good thing since they won’t get stored in the body as fat and will be stored in the muscle cells. Second, any bodybuilding training guide should advise you to do cardio at least tow to three times a week. Not only is it healthy for you but it will help your body stored calories in the muscle cell. Since cardio burns more calories, you can eat more food without worrying about having that food stored as new bodyfat. Focus on high intensity interval training for at least twenty minutes two to three time per day or else your body will burn a small amount of calories which isn’t the best.
Third, you want to add in some isolation movement. If you want to build big arms then you need to do curls. If you want to build wide shoulders then you need to do side laterals. Don’t ignore these movements and think that the only thing that you can do is shoulder presses or compound movements.
Fourth, you must have a post workout shake that consists of protein and carbohydrates. Don’t be concerned if it’s liquid or solid food, just make that you eat 2 grams of carbs for every 1 gram of protein that you eat.
So there it is, a bodybuilding training guide that actually gives you the tools that you need to succeed. Don’t get lost in the hustle and bustle of building muscle. Just focus on your training and food and you’ll have the body you want in a short time.
