Bodybuilding Tips - Focusing On Right Muscle Proportion

Bodybuilding tips are pretty simple - If you want an attractive, strong physique, just focus on your body muscle proportion

One of the biggest mistake lifters make is to work some part of their bodies more than the other. What most people forget is their aim is to not have a ‘favorite’ muscle, but to be able to become as strong as possible. The highly effective bodybuilding diet may look complicated but it all works on the basic principle of right muscle proportion. When that happens, the looks come with it, no singular efforts needed

How many times have you stepped into a gym and found it full of men with bulging biceps and huge chests, but legs like bamboo and the back of a teenager? This is not only makes one aesthetically unappealing, it might cause posture issues and orthopedic problems later.

Here are a few mistakes you are most likely to make:

1. You don’t train your legs

That, right there, is one of the foolish things a trainee can do. The muscles of the legs (quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes) are one of the biggest and strongest muscle of your body and possess a huge potential of growth. Also, most of the power in sports and general strength activities is generated by legs for the same reason. There isn’t a single martial arts fighter or wrestler with weak legs. It’s the same way as you can’t have six pack abs without abdominal fat loss. So stop curling so much and start squatting at least twice a weak.

2. You are partial to certain type of exercise

If you do press exercises in a disproportionately large volume as compared to pull exercises, you will definitely have posture issues and your strength will stall. This also works conversely. Do both, and bring your body building to speed up proportionately.

3. You try to isolate your muscles too much

Trainees who emphasize on leg extensions and leg curls instead of just plain old heavy squatting end up becoming quad or glute dominant. Compound exercise is the best workout to build muscles upto the optimal strength all together.

4. You are partial to a certain plane of motion

Many people who bench press much more than the overhead press generate shoulder issues later on. Also, most people work their upper back more than their lats, causing a higher probability of spinal problems. The key is to bring a workable balance in doing both.

If you see the top body builders in the world, you will find that it is vital to keep the strength levels of complementary muscles in mind to build a strong good-looking body.

Tip: Do not fall for the groupthink

Here are some of the myths about body building supplements:

The most common myth about body building foods and supplements is that they are considered to be dangerous and unsafe. Also you will get to hear that they makes you fat. So let me get straight to the point, body building supplements taken in prescribed quantity along with workout helps you build muscles effectively.

Until next time train hard and stay strong!
