Body building tips for beginners

Body building, Muscles—Unlisted Sightings (Flickr.com)


Arnold Schwarzenegger was a fantastic body builder in his day but there is more to the sport than trying to make your body look like his. Most people think that body building is about increasing your muscles to outrageous sizes.

The simple truth is that body building is all about strengthening your muscles and then building them up to give you a “prettier” physique. It isn’t about “getting ripped.” It is actually about getting healthy. If you are interested in starting a body building routine, here are some tips to help you out. Don’t ever forget that in body building your health comes first and your physique comes last.

Choose a gym that is good. Not all gyms have the type of equipment you need to use when you want to do some body building. Look at a bunch of gyms before you make a final decision about which gym to use. You want to find a gym that has regular body building clients and customers.

The right lighting and level of cleanliness are also very important. Your gym should have equipment that is well maintained and always in working order. You should feel good about the gym you’ve chosen. If you don’t like spending time there or using the equipment you won’t get your money’s worth out of your gym membership. This means that your body building efforts will suffer.

Set realistic goals for yourself. Don’t try to build your body too fast (something that according to Rusty Moore is one of the main problems of most people).
Focus on goals that are realistic and healthy. This way you will build your body and get the high satisfaction that comes from being able to meet your goals.

When you succeed and see your goals get met you can think about setting future goals. Setting reasonable and reachable goals keeps your motivation up and keeps you from being tempted to do something stupid like taking a shortcut.

Don’t forget: you need to strengthen your muscles before you can build them. If you to do body building too fast you might hurt yourself or get discouraged when you don’t see the results you want as quickly as you wanted to see them.

Some of the major body building individual exercises include military presses, push ups, pull ups, dead lifts, curls, lunges, leg curls, squats, side laterals, barbell curls, hanging leg raises and all of the other types of exercise that most consider “normal” like running, biking and swimming.

You should always have someone do the exercises with you even if you are very good at all of them. When you work on lifting, make sure you have someone spot you, especially on the days when you are working on increasing your weight tolerance. Trying to lift without having a spotter handy is dangerous because you will need someone to help you if the lift you do becomes too hard for you to do on your own.

Body building can be an incredibly rewarding activity. It helps you to get healthy. It can keep you in shape. It increases your stamina and endurance.

As you work at the sport your strength will improve and your muscles will grow and it is very important that you consciously care for your health and your muscle tone. If you take the proper steps to protect yourself there is no reason that you shouldn’t have great success with your body building endeavors.
