Body Sculpting Understanding the Basics
The dream of every man going to the gym is to have body that looks like a beautifully carved sculpture of muscles. Nevertheless, most of men do not know the mechanism that goes on in our body that causes the muscles in our body to fatten and strengthen.
One of the most common mistakes that people make in a gym is of weight overload. They think that the more weights that they lift; the stronger and well sculpted their body will become. Nevertheless, what such people do is, only waste their precious time in a futile activity and end up causing harm to their body.
While the muscles will increase only with increasing the load, you must keep in mind that gradual weight amount lifting is important while training to sculpture your muscles. Our bodies grow only because they adapt to increased resistance forced on them. It is extremely important that you keep in mind that our bodies can adapt only to slight changes at a time. Although continuing with the same weights will bring about the same results, only a progressive increase will bring about a progressive change.
Higher weight repetitions enable you to increase the load on the muscles. This in turn leads to the formation of new tissues in that muscle region which increases the muscle size over a period. These muscles will now be able to handle even more stress and thus will help in forming even more tissues.
The most effective repetition range is between four and six for every exercise. What most people believe is that these lesser weight reps will lead to injury. On the contrary, this will help in reducing every chance of injury because the muscles are, given ample time to adjust to the increase in resistance.
A lower volume of weight reps will not make your sides look flabby or else bulged. Instead, lower weight reps will help in forming those cuts that make your body look like a sculpted muscular masterpiece.
Nevertheless, what weights to choose? Well, the first few days in the gym will only be a period of hit and trial. You will take a few days to understand how much the right weight for you to begin with is. (“How to gain muscle and get your dream body. | ArticleField.com”)
Well as an idea the weight with which you do more than six reps is too light. When you can easily do six sets with a particular weight, it is time to move on to the next higher weight.
The increase is this progressive flow in weightlifting, which increases the muscles. Four to 6 reps of higher weights will always be more effective in muscle gaining than a greater number of reps of lower weights.
Another important thing to keep in mind is warm-ups. Warm-ups should be just enough to start proper blood flow into your tissues. It should be overdone such that you lose all the energy to do those heavy reps. The entire purpose is defeated if your muscles get tired even before being strained to the max.
However, when you have warmed up the number of sets that you will be able to perform will be only one or two, but they will be more than enough if done properly. The quality of workout is what will bring the desired results and not the quantity.
The motive here is to stimulate the muscle into growth mode. This is done by having a smaller number of reps with higher weights. It is better to use only as much weight as you can handle. Sometimes in a bid to lift more weight, we cause damage to the tissues.
Thus, overall, now that you know what heavy and lightweights can do for you; it will help you in deciding which one is better for you. Now you can work toward that stunning physique.
