Hey, if you are just starting out body building, it can seem a little confusing on what to do, who to listen to etc. You probably see people in the gym give all sorts of advice, a lot of which is total BULL! Get advice from people that seem to know what they are doing, or have the physique you want. It’s usually the one’s that don’t talk much and concentrate on their workouts. One of the first things you can do is educate yourself. Educate yourself on proper diet, when to eat, how often to eat, how to lift weights CORRECTLY, what your goals are etc.
A lot of people who have been working out for a numbers of months and even years just don’t seem to get the right results. It’s simply because their foundations are not there. They are either lacking in diet discipline, or just leading a lifestyle that does not fit with body building. I use the word lifestyle, because body building is a full time commitment. It’s not just something you do for an hour or two a day. I found a good bodybuilding beginners guide that is useful and to the point. It highlights 9 important points to consider as a newbie body builder.
One of the most important points that a beginner can take is to keep a track of everything. Have a diary or notepad and jot down what you ate, how many calories consisting of carbs, protein and healthy fats you consumed in the day, what exercises you did and check whether progression is being made. Anyone can go to the gym and lift some weights or use a treadmill, but folks body building is much more than that!
