Advanced Bodybuilder Workout
An all round bodybuilding workout should be one that includes working out all the major muscle groups in the body. This doesn’t mean that you should just concentrate on weight lifting either; you must include aerobic and cardiovascular exercises into your routine to.
This will ensure that your heart is kept healthy and obviously also helps to burn off any excess calories. So when you start to plan your bodybuilding workout, it is important that you focus on certain areas in each session. It is not advised to try to work all areas at one time but to work 3-4 different areas each time.
You must also want to know exactly what you want to achieve before starting your bodybuilding routine. If you don’t set proper goals from the beginning, then you may just simply give up half way through because you don’t really know where you are going.
So decide exactly what you want to achieve, whether it be a slimmer, more toned body or maybe you want to bulk up and build your muscles. Decide and write it down. Then you can plan your workout accordingly.
So when planning your bodybuilding workout, it can be useful to work related parts of the body. For instance, one day could be arms, next day legs, next day chest and upper body. It really depends what you want to achieve. Here is a rough example:
Mon - Biceps & Triceps
Tue - Thighs & Calves
Wed - Rest Day
Thu - Back & Chest
Fri - Biceps & Triceps
Sat - Rest Day
Sun - Thighs & Calves
Obviously this is only a guide but you should see how it works more clearly.
It is very important to have rest days in between your workout because this helps the muscles to grow and strengthen. If you constantly work certain muscle groups without giving them time to rest, you may find that you are achieving nothing. So give them time to rest.
If you stick to your bodybuilding workout, it shouldn’t take too long for you to see results. It also helps to have someone to train with, so maybe talk a friend or work colleague into training with you.
