Are you a beginner and want to know some useful Bodybuilding tips? Then you are in a right place so let’s start. Why are we so fascinated with building muscle? Maybe it’s because as kids we loved our superheroes. Let’s face it the most popular superheroes we grew up with; Superman, Batman, Hulk…what did they all have in common? Well for a start beside some special supernatural powers, they all had big muscles and were stronger than the average human being. So what does this mean?
The inner child in all of us wants to be a superhero that is why we call them superheroes, we want to be like them, we even idolize them. Obviously, we cannot develop superpowers and fly like Superman so the closest next best thing is to build muscle and get stronger. That is why I’ve developed a 5 tip guide to becoming a superhero!
5 Bodybuilding Tips That Will Get You Bigger Faster
The stronger you get the more muscle you will have. This means in the gym you need to focus on constantly getting stronger, that doesn’t mean stack on the weights where you are risking injury and form. It means to do enough weights where you are hitting the 6-8 repetitions but with a sweat and proper technique. Every time you find it easier in hitting that number, add more weight to constantly push yourself and get yourself out of that comfort zone.
2. Free Weights
Yes we’ve all done it and I’m not against it, but you shouldn’t be using fancy machines for your main body parts and exercises like your bench presses, barbell curls, etc. Its good sometimes to use machines to keep the body guessing and make things interesting but I would focus on free weights most of the time.
3. Compound Exercises
Compound exercises are exercises that build muscle and strength. Although isolation exercises are important too, compound exercises are the ones which are going to build the most muscle and strength. Compound exercises include; Bench press, pull-ups, chin-ups, squats, deadlifts, dips. By incorporating at least 1 or 2 compound exercises per body part every week you are sure to build muscle and strength fast.
I see it all the time, guys spending hours in the gym training their upper body and never train their legs. These are the same guys that never wear shorts in summer, with a fear of looking un-proportioned or being laughed at for having “chicken legs”. The fact of the matter is like anything in the real world a strong base is required, like a tree which needs strong roots and base in order to survive.
We need strong legs, to not only look good in shorts but for a stronger and bigger upper body. Your legs are half your body and by doing squats and deadlifts you are not only working out your whole body but helping to release more growth hormone in your whole body, which means a bigger and stronger body overall.
5. Split body parts
Do not try to work out your whole body in one workout. Split body parts workouts i.e. chest workouts and shoulders workouts, biceps workouts and triceps workouts. If you try training every body part in one session, you will not only be in the gym for too long, but you will not have enough energy to work out muscles which by the end of the session will already be fatigued. So by splitting muscle groups, you will get the maximum out of each workout and body part to build muscle fast!…
