The bottom line when looking to get results is to never sacrifice form to lift more weight. When you are trying to stimulate muscle the weights are just the tools you use to induce stimulation. The trick is to make it more difficult for yourself by making sure that you can focus on really squeezing the muscle you're training. Focusing and squeezing is much more important than the amount of weight used, and with that manner of execution you can't use really heavy weights.
In order to achieve success in any bodybuilding program you need to set goals, your goal should be clearly defined and engrained in your brain. Otherwise any muscle you gain is just coincidental and if you get anywhere it will be by mere chance. The second vitally important aspect of being successful as a bodybuilder is following a sensible training program
Unfortunately, many body-builders who are just getting started make the mistake of either choosing a bodybuilding routine that is too advanced for their level, or simply go to the gym without any training plan. Too much too soon leads to injury and just going from machine to machine without any set routine just leads to marginal bodybuilding results at best.
Without a bodybuilding diet to go along with your training program you will fail to lose body fat and gain muscle. Nutrition is what gives us the raw materials for recuperation, energy, and growth. Therefore, it is important that you get familiarized with the characteristics of a good bodybuilding diet and apply those principles in order to ensure getting the bodybuilding gains that you are looking for.
Showing any of your hard earned muscle comes from low body fat and low body fat is attained through following the proper diet. But abs is also got with strength and the thickness of your abdominals is directly proportional to your strength. This will increase along with your overall strength as well as the thickness of your neck etc.
Don't bother with taking supplements and spending your hard earned muscle on something that will not make up for improper training, or lack thereof, and/or a low quality diet. Bodybuilding supplements only work when your diet and your training program are optimal. Keep in mind that supplements are just additions to an already good nutrition and training program.
Once all of the aspects mentioned above are part of your life you can start thinking of adding bodybuilding supplements to your program. You need to get proper rest: Muscles do not grow as you work them out. They grow while you sleep. Therefore, sleep deprivation will cost you valuable bodybuilding gains.
Ensure you get a good night's sleep every night and avoid staying up late if you don't need to in order to keep cortisol levels low. Seven to ideally eight hours of sleep each night will not only keep you healthy and more energetic, but also will ensure that bodybuilding gains keep on coming. Consistency leads to bodybuilding success and consistency of execution will lead to ultimate bodybuilding success.
If you consistently apply a sound training system, nutrition, supplementation and recovery plan you will achieve your fitness goals. If you fall off the wagon, lift yourself up and get back on it! Too many bodybuilders focus on perfection. Therefore, if they miss a workout, a meal, or cheat on their diet, they get all frustrated and toss the whole program. You control what you put in your mouth: Remember that only you control what goes in your mouth. Food does not control you!
