It is a known fact that bodybuilders tend to concentrate a lot on visible muscles such as the biceps and chest muscles when they are training. You should however avoid focusing on visible muscles alone if you want your body to be proportional. If your body physique is not proportional you will look very funny. In order to develop a good body physique you should focus on proportional training. Failure to practice proportional training means that your body is going to get more and more asymmetrical.
If you do not practice proportional training your body strength is going to be unevenly distributed. You should train both your upper body and lower body proportionately so that your training program could be deemed complete. Many bodybuilders tend to concentrate on training the upper body and neglect the lower body. You need to focus on training the lower body also because it is the one which supports the upper body. If your lower body is weak, you will not be able to train your upper body effectively. You should ensure that you have a third party with you who will be able to give you an honest opinion as to whether your body is developing proportionately.
Many bodybuilders make the mistake of assuming the importance of resting in bodybuilding. They are not aware that muscle growth occurs when they are actually resting as the muscles are recovering and not when they are lifting weights. Many novice bodybuilders assume that the more they train the more there muscles growth well in fact it is the amount of recovery period which will determine whether there muscles are going to grow. As a bodybuilder it is very important therefore that you allocate yourself enough time to rest both during the night and in between the workouts. You should sleep at least 8 hours each night so that your muscles can adequately recover from the intense training.
When you are training intensely in the gym using weights, the muscles usually tear as a result of the tension. You are therefore supposed to take plenty of proteins so that your muscles can be able to recover. If you do not take plenty of proteins your muscles are not going to be able to recover and grow. In fact this is the reason why proteins are regarded as the building blocks of muscles. In additions to a protein rich diet you are also supposed to take plenty of carbohydrates as well.
When selecting the type of carbs to include in your diet, you should go for complex carbs and not simple carbs. The reason why you should not take plenty of simple carbs is because they are easily assimilated in the body leading to excess calories which are later converted and stored as fat in the body. You should therefore consume complex carbs since they are digested very slowly by the body hence not converted into fat very easily. Carbohydrates provide the body with the much needed energy needed to train intensely in the gym.
