In our quest as natural bodybuilders there is obviously a tremendous amount of science involved in the development of the human body. Anatomy, physiology, metabolism, biology, catabolic, and anabolic etc, the technical terms just keep on coming. However, there is some great news for all you non-scientists out there. There are a number of remarkably simple changes you can make that will make huge differences to your gains, and you can implement straight away.
You should also be aware that if you are not incorporating these tips into your routine then chances are you can forget about building your perfect natural body. So here are 3 easy to implement tips you can act on straight away.
1: Eat More & Eat Often. This is perhaps the most basic requirement and yet seems to the main area where most people fail miserably on their natural bodybuilding mission. You simply have to focus on proper nutrition. Training with weights is only half of the equation! You break down your muscle fibres in the gym, but if you don't provide your body with the proper nutrients at the proper times, the muscle growth process will be next to impossible.
You should be eating anywhere from 5-7 meals per day, spaced every 2-3 hours in order to keep your body in an anabolic, muscle-building state at all times. Each meal should consist of high quality protein and complex carbohydrates. Also eating properly is imperative when it comes to the fat loss required to actually see the muscular development you have been working so hard on.
2: Take Less Time. This is a great little tip when it comes to developing your lean muscle mass, or indeed whatever your training goal happens to be. If you can perform more work in less time you will be upping the intensity level and improving your cardiovascular conditioning. This leads to an increase in your metabolic rate and an increase in lean muscle mass.
Do more reps with more weight in less time and just watch your lean muscle mass and muscular development go through the roof. Try to take much shorter rest periods and donít worry if you feel totally shattered to begin with, thatís exactly how you are supposed to feel!
If your workout is currently taking over an hour then take a step back and examine just how much of that time is spent in recovery. If you can halve your recovery time you will massively increase the intensity of your workout and supercharge your metabolism. This is such a simple tip, but one that has proven to be massively effective. Try it today.
3: Work on your mindset. It is vital that you keep a positive mindset in place. You have to be disciplined, focused and goal orientated. Have you noticed that the most successful people in any field tend to be positive, and will always have a specific set of plans in place. They very rarely blame others for their shortcomings and regularly step out of their comfort zone in order to develop themselves.
Natural bodybuilding is no different, and if you truly want to develop your perfect physique then you will have to do the same. If your training plan isn't working then don't blame your trainer, change your training plan. If you are not losing enough fat then don't blame your diet, change your diet. You, and only you are responsible for you! Quit finding excuses for your own shortcomings and take responsibility right now.
