When training as a natural bodybuilder you need to ensure that you have a plan that you can stick to and a plan that is designed to work. To be successful as a natural bodybuilder you need to not only make sure that you are training correctly but also enabling your body to get the returns from these hard and intense workouts by eating correctly.
Usually that means an off season and a ripping or a “cutting” season which is usually the competitive season. In order to gain muscle research shows that you need to eat a lot more than what you are actually burning up. The result may be that you are putting on a little fat that is hiding the muscle away but that is the only way that you are going to ensure successive gains when training as a natural bodybuilder.
Whole grain breads, cereals and muffins work well for carbohydrate and fiber intake, while potatoes, rice and pasta are the most stable and popular sources of carbs. They burn clean, and with intense bodybuilding training they're not likely to store as body-fat. Vegetables of your choice is very necessary and are good complex carbs with fiber abundant, vitamins, minerals and exotic micro nutrients lurk in these foods.
Plan your menu daily. You'll need to eat often, upwards of 6 meals per day. Don't overload your system as science has proven that we can expect to absorb about 35 grams of muscle building protein at a sitting. For serious weight gain commit to these principles but make sure that you are eating every three hours to ensure that you are getting the maximum benefit from your diet.
Never allow your nutrition to falter, even for a few hours. Keep extra food, protein drinks and bodybuilding supplements at work, in your gym bag and in your car. If you want to succeed at natural bodybuilding no one said it was going to be easy. It really does take the “extra mile” that competitors have to go in order to get the results.
Using bodybuilding supplements can make a big difference if you are an advanced bodybuilder and want to compete. Supplements like creatine, BCAAs and glutamine do work really can make the difference between success and failure in holding the maximum amount of muscle that you can.
It is strongly advised to perform cardiovascular exercise. Don't neglect your aerobic work which should be 20 minutes, 4 times a week will keep you from getting sluggish, increase you blood volume, raise your fat burning metabolism and maintain maximum endurance for training on the gym floor.
