Body Building Tips


Just like routines, this document is not intended to be a “one size fits all.” Take from it what you will, but please remember that what is most important is your health and well being. In that light, consider the following list:

·       Before beginning any serious weight lifting or body building regimen, consult your physician.

·       Set your goals. Define what you expect to achieve with your new bodybuilding campaign within a realistic time frame. If you create goals that are unattainable you are setting yourself up for failure. You can become bored, disappointed and disillusioned to the point where you may give up. This is a very sad outcome to what might have been the best decision of your life. Don‛t sell yourself short. Set your long term goals, of course, but also set short term goals that are achievable.  And,
don‛t forget to reward yourself when you do achieve them.

·       Consider the costs. If you don‛t already have a budget, create one. Then, determine what amount of discretionary funds you have available for your bodybuilding program. This will determine whether you can afford to have a home gym or if your needs would better be served by joining a club. Joining a club is still a good short term introduction before spending hundreds or thousands of dollars on equipment that might not be appropriate for your needs.

·       Don‛t forget some of the low cost alternatives to purchasing your bodybuilding equipment.
If used equipment is still functional why spend the extra dollars just for a little

glitz! Good, brand name used equipment is every bit as functional as something right off a showroom floor.

·       Consider combining a home gym along with a membership in a public

facility.

Purchase less expensive free weight equipment for use at home and join a gym to have access to the more expensive equipment. You can design your entire workout routines around a combination such as this.
