You tried so many times to get into shape, but never knew where to start? So many disappointing workout programs, so much wasted time and money? Well, now you will find out where and how to successfully begin and keep up.
Setting Goals and Building a Strong Foundation
First and foremost, set realistic goals and keep a track of them in a notebook. You can do this by yourself or you can get professional help from a physician.
Secondly, start off gradually and slowly. Do not embark yourself in difficult and tiresome programs that you will not be able to keep up with and that will exhaust you.
Remember that fitness should make you feel good, not wear you out.
Thirdly, trust yourself and follow your routine. You must weigh yourself and take the measurements periodically!
It doesn’t matter if you are extremely thin, athletic or overweight, you need to always be connected to your body and listen to it when it comes to bodybuilding. Always remember that a simple personalized program is the way to get that perfect body!
Changing the Diet
In any diet and especially when you are working out, you need to supply your body with all the nutrients. It is very important that you eat proteins, vegetables and fruit. There are many diets out there that you can try. Still, you need to keep in mind that you need to eat six meals a day. Why? Because your body needs a constant supply of nutrients during the day, so you need to regularly feed your muscles. Also, the human body cannot digest too much protein at once so you need to have smaller frequent meals.
Do not worry! You will not become a fatty, but it is essential that you eat properly and change your traditional way of thinking about what and how to eat properly.
Starting the Bodybuilding Routine
Now that you are sure about what you want to accomplish and know the steps, you need to start your routine. Do not make the mistake of most beginner bodybuilders who use the routines of professionals featured on TV or magazines!
You need to start with the minimum tools and exercises. Start out easy and increase the difficulty gradually.
You can find a gym close to your house or work that has modern equipment and friendly staff. In order to be extra motivated, you can get a partner that is reliable and has similar goals to yours. This will make you be more competitive and your progress much easier.
Also, do not forget about breathing! This is important with weightlifting, because in this way, you supply with oxygen your muscle cells. A very simple exhale while lifting and inhale while lowering will do the trick.
So, warm up, eat properly, breathe deeply and start working your muscles! You will shortly see the remarkable changes in your body, especially if you are a bodybuilder beginner.
The best of luck to you!
