The Copying Principle
There are many people in the world who are unsatisfied with the way they look. They might want to lose weight, get in a better shape, exercise more or tone their muscles further on. Of course, there are plenty more where that came from. Nevertheless, these people usually do nothing or get stuck in wrong techniques and methods, doing very little, hardly ever achieving their goals. Thus, something is wrong here and a change is necessary. Yet, whether there are things one can do about this or not is always a question. Luckily, there are plenty of things you can do in order to become the physical “you” you would like to be. Still, you need a good strategy like the following one.
Namely, once you, for example, decide to boost your looks, toning your muscles like a pro, you desire quick and effective results. In order for these to come, you need to use the right methods. However, this can be a problem, since you are not an expert in this field. Then, you need to apply the copying principle. Quite simplistically, all you need to do in such situations is find someone who had already done what you are striving for, and learn important information from him/her. As soon as you are able of following someone’s path of success, you are bound to achieve the same results earlier. Thus, you will know that this is possible, you will be motivated and you will succeed.
General Recipe for Building Muscles
Before reading the following lines, be aware that each person has its own optimal workout sequence. Thus, feel free to modify yours until it meets your expectations and you find it absolutely suitable.
You might start with 6-8 repetitions for your upper body and up to 10 repetitions for your lower body. Make sure you involve exercises which activate more of your joints at once but be careful not to overdo it. Also, leave crunches, curls and other such exercises for the very end, polishing your already made muscles. Your training needs to be intense, pushing you to your very limits, but not overboard.
As far as nutrition is concerned, you are advised to increase your intake of fats, especially healthy ones found in fish oil and other foods. You need more fat in order to have energy to spend through your rigorous exercise program, thus make sure you have enough of it. Once you achieve your ideal muscle mass, you can lose the rest of the fat you need no more. Supplements are highly advisable to be taken, providing your body with more.
Finally, do not forget to rest, and never neglect recuperation. Muscles are built while you are resting and in no other way. Thus, make pauses between trainings, reserved for relaxing and recovering your muscles.
