Building a Body
Building a body or really building your own body to the level or shape of your desire is possible due to rapid growth in technology and peoples experience. Since it became a sport in the 1970’s more and more people want to develop their body’s and unlock its full potential in achieving not only just a massive body but a work of art!
To be a good body builder you will need to focus on more than just lifting weights. Set serious goals on what you wish to achieve out of your body building. Setting up your goals can be the most important phase of your training as it keeps the mind on track during training, helps with motivation and maintains a positive attitude. So what are your goals for building a body? What kind of body do you want? Once you have written these down or set them in your mind you are ready to start your body building journey.
You need weight training to work the muscles but also a good diet and the right nutrition. The muscles require a constant source of energy and other essential nutrients such as proteins, fats, vitamins and tissue building enzymes. What we eat is vital to bringing the muscle building ingredients to the right areas therefore it is important that we are mindful of what and how much we eat.
Rest is equally if not more important for body building after and during workout. When we do weight training, we effectively “rip” or damage our muscles. During rest, our bodies get to work on the damaged muscles by growing the muscle fibres making them bigger. So we need to put the body through a sedentary state when we have our rest periods. A balanced form of body building program is vital for the entire body. Weight training, proper nutrition, rest and good cardiovascular workout work extremely well in combination for producing great results for your health and your body building goals. Remember, your heart is your power source, take care of it. Your heart will greatly help you train longer and more efficiently.
The Mind Set
Maintaining a positive attitude during and after training is KEY. If you keep your sights on the goals you have set for yourself, you’ll find that you can push yourself even further. You will be surprised. Training is hard work and very exhausting mentally and physically so it’s normal to want to give up and we start lose sight of our initial goals. So stay strong, and keep in mind your goals, this will give you the boost you need to push further in your training.
Know Thy Self
Understand your body’s components and how the different muscle groups work not just only what muscles you want to make bigger. It will be very satisfying knowing you have built your body and mind into a strong and healthy state.
