No Nonsense Muscle Building
And Weight Lifting Tips
Weight lifting or (resistance training) tips, are necessary for getting the
most benefit from your workout. It will also reduce the chances of sustaining a serious debilitating injury.
The primary lifting (resistance) tip is to warm up before starting your workout.
Do warm ups at least for five to ten minutes before getting started, because it is necessary for cardio vascular vessels to get the blood flowing.
Another weight lifting (resistance) tip, which is very important before working out, is to stretch all your muscles.
It is always better to start with weight that you can handle at least ten to twelve repetitions, to build strength.
Then as you progress add more weight, with six to eight repetitions, while always remembering to keep good form.
Before moving up to higher weights (or more resistance), make sure your comfortable with the increase because if you go over the top with heavy weights, it may tear and damage the muscle.
A spotter is advised when you progress to heavy weights, it not only helps minimize any possible injuries, but a spotter can help you get those extra one or two reps which can really help make a difference.
If you're unable to complete the full six to eight reps, lower the weight, do not lift more weight than your limit especially if you do not have a spotter because it can end with an accident.
Remember never hold you breath when completing a rep, as it can lead to broken blood vessels or worse. It is very important to breathe freely through out the exercise.
When doing a unilateral exercise, always start with your weakest side first and after that complete only as many repetitions on your stronger side. Never overwork your strong side, just because you can complete more reps.
You need to continue doing exactly the same reps on both sides, because due to our skeletal structure we're not 100% symmetrical. So one side looks bigger and more developed then the other.
Just keep doing the same amount of reps on both the left and the right side. As you gain size and muscle, it should even out and you won't notice any difference.
Work on all of your major muscles and muscle groups especially legs, abdominals, chest, back, shoulders and arms.
It is important to exercise muscles in a balanced way. Don't just workout the top half of you body and not your legs, it will look out of proportion!
