There can be absolutely no doubt that becoming a natural bodybuilder takes time and effort, and will require 100% commitment from you. A great natural physique is a wonderful goal that will not only develop your physical self but will also have a tremendously positive impact on your emotional well being as well. More self-esteem, more confidence and a greater sense of self worth are just some of the many benefits if building your perfect physique the natural way. So how do we go about it? Well, here are a few tips to set you on your way.
1: Eat Right: Try to remember that the vast majority of your gains will take place away from the gym, they will take place during your rest and recovery periods and during your time spent in the kitchen. You will need to significantly increase your caloric intake in order to build the sort of lean muscle mass you need. Now, donít get me wrong, I am not suggesting for one minute that you gorge on fried chicken and cream cakes just to up your calorie intake. You need to take on board the right type of calories. Focus on high quality proteins in the form of lean red meat, poultry, fish, and eggs. Also try to take on board as much high fibre, low glycemic carbohydrates as you can. For example, oatmeal, brown rice etc.
2: Increase your intake of water: I know it may seem difficult at first, you may even feel slightly bloated. However, it is vitally important that you stay well hydrated and take as much water on board as you possibly can. The benefits of taking plenty of water on board are obvious and are very well documented, however, one really key point to bear in mind is that water has been shown to considerably reduce the risk of injury while training, an absolutely vital requirement in any natural bodybuilding regimen.
3: Be Specific: Be as specific as possible about your goals and your training plan. The vast majority of super successful people, irrespective of their field of expertise, will recognise the importance of setting specific goals and targets, and having a definite plan in place. You absolutely have to keep a detailed record of your training and your diet. That is the only way you will be able to measure your gains and to check you are still on track.
4: Be consistent: If you have a training plan that involves you going to the gym 4 times a week, then follow it to the letter. You will find yourself losing the edge pretty quickly if you start to become inconsistent with your workouts, and you can forget all about building that perfect natural physique.
5: Intensity: Add intensity to your workout. There has been a lot written and said about training to muscular failure and you will probably have to make your own mind up about that. However, what I would say is that if at the end of your workout you are not lying on the floor in a pool of your own sweat, or are not on the verge of collapse just praying for the sweet release of death then the chances are you havenít worked hard enough!
Finally I have one tip to become a natural bodybuilder that will probably have more of an effect than any other and it is this. Take Action Now! It is truly incredible just how many times you see guys at the gym standing around talking about what they are going to do. Why are they not just getting on with it? Procrastination is the biggest impediment to any program of personal development. You can take on board all the information and facts and figures as you like, you can come up with the greatest training plan ever devised, but I can assure you of one thing right now, I have never seen anyone develop a great physique simply by talking about it!
Make the commitment to take action right now, and you will find yourself building a huge natural physique in no time.
