A healthy and happy life – who doesn’t want that?
Of course, we all do! But there are some compromises we have to make, some things we have to give up, do the hard yards and be conscientious if we are to achieve the goal that we have in mind, and often times it is not easy.
Below we have discussed a possible solution for all your health and fitness issues which might need some time and effort but is sure to work!
Bodybuilding is a word that’s sometimes very perplexing for people. Even though it is self-explanatory, people tend to confuse it with weight lifting and then this whole idea is dropped altogether even before considering it for the first time. After all, weight lifting is a very difficult and cumbersome job to do.
However, bodybuilding in actual means constructing, designing, altering and kind of sculpturing your own body with the help of a combination of different exercises, diets and some light weightlifting if any at all. There are many exercises recommended by professional bodybuilders and gym instructors and some can even be performed at the comfort of your home if gym affordability is an issue. Some of them are mentioned below:
This is one of the most basic exercises you can do. It is equally effective for both beginners and professionals and can be performed by people of any gender and age (almost) as long as you follow some guidelines. This exercise does not require any machinery which is also a plus. How it works is, you lie flat on your belly, and put both hands on the floor palm first and in line with your shoulders. Your weight needs to be on your toes and palms, and with the help of these, you can move your body up and down. This can be repeated 10 to 20 times for beginners and more for professionals and can be performed in sets. This will not only build biceps and triceps, but also strengthen your shoulders and calf muscles.
2. Air Bike or Bicycle Maneuver
This is a fairly simple exercise in which you lie on your back, raise your legs and circulate them in the air as you would on a bicycle while riding it. This is a great exercise for your abdomen muscles. It not only strengthens them, but also shapes your abs. It’s a great little exercise to shape those six packs everyone desire so much!
Diet control is probably the most underrated apparatus when it comes to focusing on becoming healthy and smart. This is however proven to be the most effective in conjunction with bodybuilding if you need prominent and rapid results. There is no one way to go when it comes to dietary control. Basically, you need a balanced nutrition which means cutting on fats, junk food and stuff like cheese and mayonnaise, and increasing the intake of healthy foods like vegetables, yogurt, milk, fruits and other proteins. Quitting or cutting on fizzy drinks is also a great way to feel healthy and gas free (burp!).
To sum it all up, you can get a beautiful and ripped body with the help of a little dedication, change in the daily intake of nutrition and some conscientiousness, but most of all mental toughness and willingness is what will drive you till the end!
