Bodybuilding split routines, bodybuilder diets, bodybuilder stories, advise, supplements, etc.
Decent advise if you are a bodybuilder…
Are you a bodybuilder?
The majority of fitness magazines are glorified advertisements, filled with supplement ads, laim bodybuilding routines and full of modes that a juiced out of their minds or depleted and dried out for their photo shoot. Is this information really applicable to the weekend warrior or athlete that is looking to improve their performance.
1. If you are an athlete, train to improve performance at your sport. Our bodies know movement, not individual muscles. Bodybuilding techniques and gyms full of machines have dominated the fitness world, but those techniques are NOT beneficial for athletes. In fact, training like a bodybuilder will make you slower and more prone to injury. Train your body to move more efficiently, faster and you will notice huge benefits.
2. People have been using traditional bodybuilding splits for years. Most would benefit enormously from trying a new routine. Try getting away from the gym and try some new workouts. Get back to basics, like a barbell, body weight movements, kettlebells, heavy ropes, sandbags, sleds and other drills that are proven to make ya sweat!
3. Supplements have become a huge distraction for most people looking to get in shape or perform at their best. Do NOT worry about supplements until you improve your eating habits. The foundation of weight loss, energy, muscle and performance is nutrition. Trying to overcome a crappy diet with a handful of pills is ineffective and a costly waste of money.
4. Understand that a hard body and top performance takes sweat, consistency, sacrifice and discipline. Developing a killer physique and massive strength takes time. Set your goals, work hard and find someone that can hold you accountable along the way. Having a coach or training partner is vital if you want to make fast, consistent gains.
Now, I dont believe that all fitness magazines and articles are bad, but you have to be careful who you listen to. In my opinion, the more machines that are involved, the less you should listen. If they are pushing tons of supplements, instead of healthy natural foods, don’t listen.
People are individuals and need specific programs that are tailored to their ability level and goals. Take some time to find a good coach, learn to control your own body, develop a foundation of strength, learn to eat more natural foods, constantly improve, smile along the way and charge towards your goals with all of your effort.
