Three tips on bodybuilding for beginners

Updated on May 2, 2011

Female bodybuilding is famous nowadays

Here some three simple tips on bodybuilding for beginners

Bodybuilding Tip #1: This is the most basic tip of bodybuilding, but it is the one which a lot of bodybuilding freaks do not seem to utilize in their lives and this is to be properly dressed up for exercise. You must wear some comfortable clothing in gym which allows your body to move safely and freely, but so many male and female body builders remain without clothes on most portions of their bodies. If you are into an exercise routine or you have joined the gym, you should follow some good habits by wearing covered clothes which are comfortable at the same time. Yeah, I know many bodybuilders do this because they want to see their body building in the front of the mirror but it does not look really nice. Why everyone else in your fitness center should smell your armpits during workouts? So do not wear a tight muscle shirt through which people can smell your arm odor. A nice well fitting T-shirt will do the work. Applying this tip will make you more friends and partners in doing your training program because I have seen several people who run away or start doing a different exercise when they smell someone's armpits or bad body odor near to them.

Bodybuilding Tip #2: Every beginner must remember to drink a little bit of water regularly, 5 minutes before and after each set of exercise. Drinking good amount of water will help you in not being dehydrated and will give you more energy to do your workouts in an effective manner. Make it a habit.

Bodybuilding Tip #3: Always be sure to use proper exercise techniques for each and every repetition of exercise because doing an exercise without following a technique is a waste of time and energy and nothing else. Exercising in incorrect postures can lead to damage to your joints or can cause muscle strains that is why it is always recommended to read proper guidelines and techniques before starting a workout. Many beginners start doing reps on a fast pace because they are new to the gym and they want to build muscle fast. Dear, it is our body and not a machine on which we are working on. Muscles need time to recuperate so as slowly you will go for repetitions and exercise sessions as soon you will build good muscle and you will also avoid undue tension on joints, damaged tendons, ligament strains, broken bones thereby reducing risk of injury at the gym or at your home. You should always double check your lifting technique and confirm it with the gym coach or your exercise instructor.
