  Bill Cummine - Principles of Bodybuilding  
 
Many people misunderstand the purpose of or principle behind bodybuilding. It's much more than just to gain huge muscles and become extremely strong. Any time we want to improve a part of our body such as to become slimmer, have better curves or just improve our overall shape, we need to perform certain bodybuilding activities.

However, often bodybuilding by itself may not be enough; we may also need to enroll in some sort of slimming or diet program. Learning the basic principles of bodybuilding can help you to get on the right bodybuilding program and achieve the body of your dreams.

Diet and Exercise

Diet and exercise usually go side by side and are both the major components behind successful bodybuilding. When you start a rigorous schedule of bodybuilding routines, your body becomes tired and needs to be replenished. The only way it can be properly replenished is by a well balanced nutritional diet. Without a healthy diet, any muscle mass you have achieved, you will soon lose. A healthy diet will consist of all the necessary nutrients including protein, carbohydrates and even essential fats.

Know your Initial Body Size and Weight

Before you begin your bodybuilding, take measurements of all your body parts including waist, chest, hips, forearms, upper arms, calves, thighs, etc. Knowing what your beginning measurements are is the best way to monitor your progress. Just knowing your weight is not enough because you may be building muscle without actually losing weight. Muscle ways more than fat so don't be surprised if you're not losing weight. You may still be increasing your muscle size.

You may notice that your weight is the same or that you've actually gained a few pounds during your bodybuilding. However, you may notice that the size of your biceps has increased. By knowing your original weight and measurements, you'll be able to accurately monitor your progress or know if you're actually making progress or need to modify your schedule or routine.

Steps for Successful Workouts

The first thing in any bodybuilding routine is knowing what your goals are and how you wish to achieve them. Based on what you decide, you will determine how many days you wish to train and how many hours per day.

Your basic goal should be to build your biceps and chest muscles. These are the first areas where you'll want to see a difference. You need to put them through a certain amount of stress so they'll grow, making sure to not overdo it. By putting them through a certain stress level, each workout will become easier.

Make sure you give your body plenty of rest between sessions. Many beginners tend to overdo it as soon as they begin to see some progress or if they don't see enough progress. By working the body too hard, they're actually slowing down their progress. Lastly, if you expect to continue to build muscle mass, you need to ensure that your body gets an adequate amount of healthy calories.
