Bodybuilding Routine for Beginners
Bodybuilding is more than just lifting weights, drinking protein shakes and flexing in front of a mirror. It takes hard work and dedication as well as serious life style changes in order to get meaningful results.
Before staring a bodybuilding routine it is highly recommended to get a full physical examination from a doctor. In addition to finding out if you have any serious health problems that may effect your routine you'll have a standard to measure your performance and see any improvement in your overall health.
You'll also want to get into the habit of healthy sleep patterns in to rebuild your muscles after each workout. A full eight hours of sleep is a must.
Next, if necessary, you'll want to change your diet to compliment your bodybuilding routine. With your new diet you should strive to eliminate junk foods and trans fats while increasing protein, vitamin and mineral intake. Alcohol consumption should also be eliminated from your diet as it will interfere with your ability to recover from your workouts.
If you don't already you'll probably want to start a light cardio workout about one week before going into a full bodybuilding routine. This is important because it will help you ease into a bodybuilding routine by increasing your metabolism and heart health.
Finally you'll need to be fully motivated to go through with a routine. Consistency and commitment are critical to success so be sure you are able to motivate yourself in order to stick with your exercise plan.
When choosing your bodybuilding routine be sure not to copy the routine of advanced bodybuilders. A good starting point for beginners is to workout three days week, lifting every other day.
Start of with exercises like bench press, barbell row, squats, shoulder presses, curls and tricep extensions. No more than 2-3 sets of 8-12 reps each. Other exercises to consider are leg curls and extensions, calf raises and stomach crunches. Be sure to take a few minutes rest between each set so you don't over exercise. Stick with this routine for 2-3 months before switching to a more advanced routine.
Bodybuilding is a great way to get into shape but it requires hard work, planning, and healthy lifestyle changes in order to get results. It's not for everyone, but if you have the dedication to make it happen the results are well worth it.
