What will you gain by being a bodybuilder? You’ll build a great physique; you will have more energy than you have ever had before, and you will improve your health. The solitude of your workouts also has side benefits most people don’t consider. The solitude of your workouts also sided with benefits most people don’t consider. However, here are some essential tips that you need to know before you start on your body building journey.
One important concept is to learn which diet you should follow based on which phase of bodybuilding you are in – bulking up or cutting. The nutrients you consume should be determined by what you plan to do that day. Most successful bodybuilders recommend that you eat a high carbohydrate meal before any intense workout. For example, carbohydrates are required for high-intensity exercise, meaning that you would logically have a high-carb meal around the time of your weight training session. When you sleep, your metabolism is slower. Anything you have eaten just before bedtime will most likely not be used for energy and will be stored as fat. Your body doesn’t need the fuel for sleeping so it will just be stored as fat. A protein shake is fine and won’t be stored as fat but, other than that, don’t eat for two or three hours before you go to bed. It’s not necessary to give up carbs completely in the evening, but try to eat fewer by choosing low-carb vegetables with your meal instead of high-carb veggies such as potatoes or corn. And take it easy on the bread. If you have followed the above suggestion and not eaten carbs after 7 pm, your body will not have a lot of stored fuel in the form of fat. Common sense will tell you that if you don’t replenish the supply of carbs – and fat – in your system in the morning before you do your cardio exercise, your body will, as a matter of course, burn the fat you already have stored. If you do eat a bunch of carbohydrates before your cardio workout, your body will simply burn the carbs for fuel instead of your stored body fat.
A new concept that you might not be aware of is the fact that it’s necessary, and recommended by professional bodybuilders, that you eat every two or three hours. Obviously, you can’t eat when you are sleeping, so to avoid going into a calorie deficit mode, your last meal before bedtime should consist of some high-quality protein. This will keep your metabolism fired up, which is the goal; it will become sluggish if you don’t keep your body ‘fueled’ frequently.
You need to keep your metabolism revved up. The problem that can occur if you don’t eat five or more times a day is that your body will try to conserve the fuel you have given it. It will think there is a shortage of food and try to make the fuel from your food last as long as possible by slowing down your metabolism. When your “efficient” metabolism is effectively using only the necessary amount of calories to keep you functioning, it is also “efficiently” storing any calories it doesn’t need at the moment as fat – for later use. Don’t just eat, for example, protein. Have your carbs, fat, and protein at each meal. Don’t just eat, for example, protein. Have your carbs, fat, and protein at each meal.
Overtraining, especially for a novice, is the worst mistake you can never make. They want to get as big as possible as quickly as possible, so they throw everything they have at their workouts like having a bike tour routine. Most newbies are oblivious to the fact that severe injuries may happen, and they may lose their momentum by trying too hard all at once. Like the fast starters in a marathon, these people will burn out quickly, and all of their gains will be a loss because of psychological and physical injuries. Though their body needs a break, they push past it training even more. The thing is that many don’t realize rest is just as important to building muscles as intense training is. 45 minute workouts, along with one day of rest a week, will allow you to avoid overtraining during this process. Aside from gaining large muscles, you will notice an increase in your popularity, a reduction of your stress, and an ability to stay healthy and well. So, don’t wait too long to start your bodybuilding journey because you will gain a lot in the process.
