‘No Pain, No Gain!’-Have it been screamed in your ear by a sweats clad but military reared trainer one too many times? Well, it’s partly true. You will experience a certain amount of pain when you decide to undergo intense bodybuilding regimens.
However, apart from muscle soreness of varying degrees, you might want to be extra alert on particular aches your body is experiencing. It may be its way of telling you that something is definitely wrong and needs some fixing. In your pursuit on the best ways on how to build muscles, keep these factors in mind to make sure you avoid causing needless injury to your body.

It is understandable that beginners especially would like nothing more than to spend many hours in the gym working up a good sweat expecting to see faster results. The fact is, over training is probably one of the first things you need to take care to avoid. Your immune system suffers and the tendency to injure oneself is greater in over training. Moreover, you will get burnt out quicker. Take a few days or even a week off periodically to give your body the rest it needs.

If your plan is to gain a lot of weight to help you realize a massive and muscular frame, many forums will tell you to keep away from regular aerobic training because this burns the much needed calories. You need to put on a considerable amount of body mass but not at the expense of your heart’s health. Cardiovascular training improves the elasticity of your arteries and lowers the cholesterol levels. Make sure you always include light aerobic training into your regimen for health purposes.

Practice gym safety. You will be using their equipment often, make sure the weight plates are properly locked and stacked away from the general floor area of the space for the safety of other trainers as well. You yourself should watch your step and be careful around machines with cables and bars attached to it. Don’t leave barbells and dumbbells just lying around where anyone can trip on them and wear the correct footwear. Give other people plenty of space when they work out.

When you are training, always maintain the correct form and position in which your drills should be executed in. Do not hurry through the reps just so you can finish the set. Compromising may mean serious injury with far reaching consequences in certain body parts. Know the correct way of doing the exercises and perform it, first with lower weights working your way up. If you think that you are over extending a certain joint or tendon, stop and call the gym instructor for help.

Finally, eat right. If you have the right diet not only will your energy up to par for your workouts, your muscle development will benefit from it as well. Whether you are planning to trim down or bulk up, get your calories from protein and carbohydrate rich food. Meals should ideally have fish, chicken, whole wheat grains, etc. Drink plenty of fluids particularly in days that you workout.

Make the extra effort to attend to these little details; it will do so much for the efficacy of your weight training routines. Have quality rest, eat sensible and exercise smart-looking good has never been this easy.
