Exercising process is something that will make the body stronger and with less fat tissue. This can be done in several ways and there are also several different workout types, which will induce development of muscles towards bulk up effect or towards lean shape. For those who are interested in reducing the fat tissue only, cardio workout should be applied for as long as excessive pounds are present. Weight lifting through resistance training will create a bulked up effect, characteristic of bodybuilders.
When a workout type has been chosen, a schedule should be made, the one that is adjusted to the physical condition of a practitioner. Most of men are attracted to muscle mass building. This happens with using resistance training – lifting weights. This will induce increase of the number of muscle cells and fibers, but there is also another important element – increase of the interstitial space in the muscle tissue.
Building muscle mass is not easy, some rules have to be obeyed and a lot of effort is needed. Lifted weight comes in the form of dumbbells, barbell, weight machines etc. Sometimes, even weight of the body may be used (push-ups, pulls-ups, triceps dips etc.). Exercises that include lifting weight should be done in at least three sets of 6 to 12 reps, depending on the abilities of a practitioner. Of course, the final set has to include the maximum weight possible. In time, this weight will have to be increased because this is needed for breaking through training plateaus. Also, to avoid this, there are some things that should be done.
Tips regarding plateaus
Muscles should be rested well; this is one of the ways for overcoming the training plateau. Over-training happens often, and in those moments, no matter how much exercising is done, no advancement will happen. Sometimes, the pause should last for days, perhaps even week or two. This time the body will use to recover completely and also to use previous effort done to increase the muscle mass. Also, some experts say that prolonging the pause between two training sessions will also help in this matter.
Cross training should be done too. Using some cardio exercises will help a lot with training muscles in a different yet effective way, so this could also be some sort of resting. But since some exercising is also done, muscles will develop when it comes to stamina, endurance and strength, of course.
