How To Start As A Beginning Bodybuilder
The first thing I wanted to make sure I did when I started back into bodybuilding was to start with a good foundation. I wanted to make sure I didn’t injure anything. I knew I had some weaknesses in my body. I injured my back a while ago and I know my posture is far from perfect.
How to get started? You can know it here at the supplements site. The completion of the work is with perfect method to get desired results. Ensure that the building of the body and reduction in the weight is according to the requirement of the people. You will get a correct posture for the body.
I started my No Nonsense Body Shaping program with the 4 Week Upside Down Training Program. The premise of this program is to get your body prepared for intense training. This program is designed to build your foundation. It helps you address issues with muscle weaknesses, issues with posture, and any muscle imbalances from left to right.
The first part of the Upside Down Training Program and improving posture is a flexibility program. This part of the program focuses on upper and lower body stretches. It allows you to customize your stretching program based on your posture. It gives tips on what to do based on how your pelvis tilts, how your feet are positioned when you stand, how you hold a long stick while you check your squatting technique.
The second part of this program is to improve posture by strengthening weak or imbalanced muscles. You want to do everything with unilateral movements. This means working one side of the body and then the other side like with dumbbells instead of barbells. You want to make sure you train the weak side first so you allow the weak side to catch up to the strong side. You will end up limiting the amount of work the strong side does by only doing as much work as the weak side.
The third part of improving posture is by increasing your core strength and stability. The key to testing this is to be able to do a sit-up with legs at a 90 degree angle, keeping your feet flat on the floor. You should be able to do a sit up without your feet leaving the floor and being able to control the sit-up movement (no pulling on your neck to get you up).
The fourth area to look at to improve posture is increasing shoulder stability. You can look at a mirror to see if you have internally rotated shoulders. From the side view, can you see your upper back in the mirror? If so, you have internally rotated shoulders. You can also look at the mirror and see where your thumbs are facing. If they are pointed across your body or behind you, you have internally rotated shoulder issues. If your thumbs point straight ahead, you are good to go.
The fifth area is to improve functional strength and conditioning with body weight exercises. Push-ups, burpees, squats, dips, and pull-ups just to name a few of the exercises in a continuous circuit training.
The sixth area to pay attention to is the lagging body parts that can benefit from advanced training techniques. This is when we focus on the smaller muscle groups before the larger muscle groups. A lot of times I find myself not getting a good back workout because my forearms and grip are giving out. This would be a weakness for me to work on during this phase so I can achieve better back workouts during the 29 week workout phase.
The seventh and last area to concentrate on during this part of the program is to adjust training techniques to decrease the weak angles of the muscles. This is where you want to make sure you are going through the full range of motion. My biggest downfall working through my full range of motion is when I work my biceps. I struggle with extending my arm past my elbow joint.
