You probably already heard that nutrition accounts for roughly 80% of bodybuilding success. This is as true, as one and one is two, and read this Testogen review to get more clarity on this topic.
The most important nutrient is protein. No other nutrient builds muscle, just protein. Other nutrients like carbohydrates and fats play a part, of course, but nothing is as important as protein.
So, if you wanna grow get lots of protein.
Dont ever slack on either of them. Say for example, if you train with intensity, but then get carried away by how much weight you lift. You pile on the weight and train as though you are superhuman. This will definitely cause your form to suffer. All of a sudden, it happens, you injure yourself, tearing a muscle or a ligament. This can put you out of training for months. Even more frustrating is the time you wasted.
See what can happen if you do not train smart and follow the basics.
So, a balance is required at all times.
Remember, overload builds muscle. So you have to train with heavyweight all the time. Every time you train you should try to equal or better your previous best. It goes without saying that you have to attempt this with near-perfect form. If your form gets sloppy, then the weight is too heavy.
In this whole article about bodybuilding advice and routines, I am trying to stress the importance of staying consistent with your training and nutrition.
To build a significant amount of muscle, you actually need to spend a hell of a lot of time and energy. This means going to the gym day after day, week after week, month after OK, you get my drift.
The thing is, you need to be consistent if you want to see results. More specifically, you need to make sure that you are doing everything correctly, each time you step into the gym.
Also, avoid falling into a rut where you do the same things all the time without evaluating your current routine. Always check and see that you have every aspect covered.
Sometimes it may seem that everything is going smoothly, but an adjustment to something small may be required.
The bottom line checks every now and then that you have the basics covered.
It is when you look back over the past month or year and see things get better at a steady rate. It can be an improvement in any aspect of bodybuilding.
If, at the end of a cycle, you are much stronger than when you began, it means that you have improved. It can also be using an excellent form with very heavy weight.
The main thing is that you get better and better. It is not what you do once in a while that produces good results.
