How to Start Body Building for Beginners?

Views: 391 Update date:Jul 13 , 2018

To start body building a beginner needs to realize that they are in fact a beginner.  This means starting from step one.  Make sure you are healthy enough to body build and make a plan for body building that will help you reach your goals safely and effectively.


This may sound like a step you think you can skip over but it is an extremely important step.  Not only do you need to make sure that you are physically able to begin body building, your doctor can help determine that the body’s organs and hormones are balanced so that you will achieve your goals. You will want to supplement protein, adding too much can be dangerous so you will want to discuss the amounts of protein you need to consume with your doctor.  Do not skip this step, if your body is not functionally appropriately you will not make the gains in body building that you can make until all your systems are functioning appropriately.


You need to have a specific place determined to do your workouts.  You can either choose a gym that is convenient for you to get to or make your own gym at home.  When starting out, many find it best to start at a gym.  At a gym you have trainers available to ensure that you are performing the exercises and lifts correctly.  They can also help you set up a workout schedule and routine.  When looking for a gym check monthly fees, location, types of equipment available, hours of operation, make sure the equipment is kept up and the place is clean.

If you are going to work out at home, you must be motivated to do so.  It does have the advantage of no fees, no waiting for equipment and the ability to let you work out anytime you choose.  One thing to note is that if you work out at home, alone you will have no one to spot you, which could be dangerous.  For a home gym, to start you will need a weight bench with a leg extension/leg curl attachment and a set of adjustable dumbbells.


Suggestions for Full Body Workout, 3 days a week include (DB) Dumbbell bench press, DB Pullovers, DB upright Rows, DB curls, DB squats, DB lunges, one arm rows, lying leg curls, calf raises, leg extensions, bent over lateral raises, overhead triceps extensions and 75 degree incline DB bench press.  Start with a set being 10 to 12 repetitions of each exercise and perform 2 sets resting one minute between sets. Perform cardio work outs on the days you are not doing full body workouts.  Slowly increase the number of sets you do every few weeks as you feel you can.
