Looking to start a new bodybuilding workout plan? Before you jump right into a new workout, you're going to need to consider these three things:
Set An Intensity Level That Intimidates You
If you're setting or shopping around for a new workout plan it is very easy to pick something that is too easy. You need to go against your gut and pick something that makes your muscles sore just thinking about. This is the key to bodybuilding: forcing your body to do something it previously wasn't capable of doing. It's a mental game, and you need to win it.
Alternate Days (And Work In Rest)
You can't do a full body workout every day, regardless of what anyone else might tell you. Unless you've found a way to make this a well paid full time job you're going to have to balance your bodybuilding with your home and work life, which means you're going to need more rest. It is important that you alternate major muscle groups each day, and that you give yourself at least one off day per week. Your body will thank you and the results will remain the same.
Create A Diet/Supplement Plan
You can spend as much time lifting and running as you want. It won't mean a thing at all if you're not taking care of your body outside of the weight room as well. If you really want to get into bodybuilding, you're going to have to get your diet and supplement game on point.
This means eliminating most (if not all fats) from your diet. Protein and colorful fruits and vegetables are going to be your best friends. Protein and creatine are going to be staples of your diet. It takes commitment to adopt this kind of diet; but after a short adjustment period you're going to absolutely love it.
