Body Building Routine

What routine or regime you select is dependent on several factors, age, sex, goals and overall physical fitness. There is no such thing as "one routine fits all."

Without getting too technical for purposes of our overview here, let's take a very simple, straightforward approach.

Generally speaking, it is recommended to do three sets of ten repetitions on each exercise you select. Beginners need to stick to a routine for at least 3 months of regular training. During this time it is important to follow a plan of good diet and nutrition. The recipes found elsewhere in this document are a great place to start.

Whatever exercises you plan to follow, you should always start off by warming up. Warm up exercises should be aerobic in nature which should include running on the treadmill, jogging, or skipping for a period of about 10-15 minutes. The overall warm up time should last between 15-20 minutes. Always remember that a warmed up body responds faster and there is less chance of injury (like muscle catch, tear, pull, etc). Warm up results in an increase in the pulse and the heart- rate.

Many factors go in to the finalization of the routine for a bodybuilder, such as the current health condition, the goal and the number of days in a week the bodybuilder is going to visit the gym.

For example, if the bodybuilder visits the gym 6 days a week, then the schedule will be of one kind. Whereas, if the bodybuilder works out three times a week, then the schedule is likely to be more intense.

However do keep in mind that no schedule should be for a long term. The long term goal should be broken down in to short and mid term targets - and the routine should be devised accordingly. Thus one short term schedule may be for 3 days a week followed by a 6 day week routine, depending on the condition and the rate of development/growth.

A good beginner routine might be to start off using a bar that is light enough to handle comfortably. Don't begin by using equipment that is not appropriate for a beginner. The only thing that may result is an overall feeling that exercise is "too hard." Work up to your routine gradually.

A beginner's session should initially cover the major muscle groups. Start off with the two hands barbell press. This is productive for developing the upper and lower arms, shoulders and back. Because it isn't the easiest exercise it should begin first when strength is at the highest. This exercise is intended for the deltoids and triceps.

A second exercise might be the two hands curl with barbell. This will work the biceps situated at the front of the arms, in contrast to the triceps at the back of the arms exercised earlier. The biceps is conventionally the muscle which all desire to develop and is usually already one of the beginner's strongest.

A third exercise to consider is the bench press. The lift lies on the back and is handed the bar which is then lowered to the chest. This exercise primarily works the pectorals but also exercises the triceps and deltoids like the first exercise.

The fourth exercise is upright rowing where the barbell is raised with a narrow hand spacing to the region of the chin, lowered to arms' length and the movement repeated. This is generally for the trapezius muscles (which lie between the neck and the shoulder socket on top of the shoulders)- so a different muscle is targeted this time.

There are many sources available to help you determine what "routine" is best for you. Here is one that we found, but be aware that it isn't the only option available nor the only one you should use. Let us see how a 5 day week routine might look:

Monday
Behind Neck Shoulder Press: 4 sets 6-10 reps
Upright Row: 4 sets 6-10 repetitions
Incline Dumbbell Press: 4 sets 6-10 reps
Bench Press: 4 sets 6-10 repetitions
Crunches: 3 sets 6-10 reps

Tuesday
Close Grip Lat Pull down: 4 sets 6-10 reps
Close Grip Seated Pulley Row: 4 sets 6-10 repetitions
Seated Calf Raise: 4 sets 6-10 reps
Reverse Wrist Curl: 4 sets 6-10 repetitions

Wednesday
Squats: 5 sets 6-10 reps
Leg Press: 5 sets 6-10 reps
Leg Curl: 4 sets 6-10 reps

Thursday
Close Grip Bench Press: 4 sets 6-10 repetitions
Tricep Dip: 4 sets 6-10 reps
Dumbbell Shrug: 4 sets 6-10 repetitions
Standing Calf Raise: 4 sets 6-10 reps

Friday
Pull Ups: 4 sets 6-10 reps
E-Z Bar Curl: 4 sets 6-10 repetitions
Hammer Curl 4 sets 6-10 reps
Crunches: (with weight) 4 sets 6-10 repetitions

As we said, there are a number of training programs available for bodybuilders and this is just one.

There are other factors to look at before selecting one for yourself. Let's explore them:

Has the program been experimentally tested?
Are there specific goals, training loads, progressive monitoring and recovery periods in the program routine?
Does the program specify what types of people are eligible for it?
Only after going through them should the bodybuilder enroll for the routines of such a program.

4 Common Mistakes Email Marketers Make that Result in Lost Revenue | Guest Post

It has long been established that email marketing is one of the most effective methods of getting the word out about your organization. With an ROI of $38 for every $1 spent, there just aren’t any other avenues that come even close.
That doesn’t mean that every email marketing campaign will be successful, however. If you’re not careful as you lay out your campaign, you could find yourself making some mistakes that will end up costing you.
Overhyping the Subject Line
We’ve all seen it before. “Amazing results in just one hour!” “ You won’t believe how effective this product is!” Clickbait subject lines have been around on email marketing messages longer than anywhere, and it’s a big turnoff for customers. A sensationalized title that delivers something less than it promises damages the trust you want your customers to have for your company. After a while, they’ll stop opening your messages entirely.

Even something as simple as “Amazing new product!” can backfire if the pro…

Depression is one of the most common mental health disorders in the United States. As per the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), in 2015, more than 16 million adults in the country suffered from at least one major depressive episode in the previous year.

Depression is a serious mental health condition that affects the way an individual thinks, feels, reacts or makes choices in life.

This is the time when one should look beyond conventional therapies and find various ways to come out of depression and lead a happy life.

Today, many treatment centers provide experiential therapies in combination with the conventional treatment method to help a patient achieve long-term benefits. Here are some simple yet effective ways …

Personal Evaluation - Are You a Good Shepherd?

Are you a hireling or a good shepherd? It is a great privilege and honour to have people entrusted to one's care as a father, mother, teacher, pastor, or unit head, etc. However, God expects anyone with such privilege to be a good shepherd. This article is aimed at helping the reader to evaluate his or her leadership position, no matter how small the person considers it to be.

"I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own - John 10:11-14 (NKJV).

There is excitement for many people when they are made leaders, but many forget that leadership position comes with great responsibility. You may have been made a leader…

Tips From Charles - Saving Your Battery

For those of us who either drive or own vehicles, one of the last things we want to experience is a dead battery. But this can easily be avoided.

My family and I bought our first car in November of 1989, and since then, we've either owned or driven several other vehicles, both gasoline-powered as well as diesel-powered. What I'm going to share works for all.When you have finished your driving for the day... and please note... this applies to new batteries as well as to those which are not so new, (two years is considered a normal time for a regular lead/acid battery to work well), do NOT just switch off the ignition and lock up the vehicle! With the engine still running, switch off all the lights, radio and any other electrical appliances: accelerate the engine to a "fast idle" speed which is just above its normal idle speed, but do not race it. Keep the engine running at this brisk idle for about one minute, then release the accelerator and switch off the ignition.I…

Trekking is fun but also risky at the same time, mishaps can occur anytime but it is upto us how we reduce the chances by taking right safety measures.

Make Your Treks Safe and Better

Here, I am going to share some Safe Trekking Tips –

First, Choose the Organisation Wisely

Before going on a trek, you should have proper answers of these questions-

Are they experienced? What is their credibility? What others say about them? Are the trek leaders skilled and qualified? What safety do they provide? Is their itinerary good enough for you? How would they handle any emergency situation?

It is very important to ask all these questions, before you choose the organisation.

Mistake which trekkers commit

They prefer to go with local guides because they think, the local guides know better. But, it’s just an assumption!

Yes, they know the mountain trails but not everyone of them is trained to tackle the emergencies. Only few of them are reliable but it’s better to prepare yourself.

Boost Your Performance By Going Green

Numerous nutrition related articles talk about preferring a diet rich in green leafy vegetables. Ironically, the ancient Greeks and Romans were aware of their nutritious power; they grew kale and collards and the Romans took them with them on their empire-building campaigns. This good practice sustained their armies and their general populations. Modern diets include many processed foods and you may not have been exposed to these traditional sources of nutrition.

If you are in that unfortunate group, then you may be looking at the selection of greenery at the grocery store and wondering what to select and why. A brief summary of the top powerhouse green leafy vegetable choices and their nutritional benefits may make your next trip and your transition to a healthier diet a little easier.

At the top of the list is the almighty kale. A variety of different types of kale leaves is available in some supermarkets, but most common is that classic curly-leaf kale. As a general guide, the darke…

Tata Hexa Reviews: Specifications, Variants, Features and Price

Till January 18, 2017, domestic car maker Tata Motors had Tiago hatchback to make it fly on the sky of success with its remarkable performance and over whelming response from Indian car enthusiasts. But, now the native car maker has one more name to enjoy this ride of success in the form of Hexa SUV, which made its debut on January 18, 2017 and succeeded in receiving the same encouraging response from the motorists which its sibling Tiago had received almost a year. However, the encouraging response received by Hexa becomes more important in current scenario, because of the internal disturbances taking place inside the house of native car maker.

The internal condition of Tata Motors after termination of Cyrus Mistry as the CEO of company is not hidden from anyone, but ignoring all those issues launching the new product strictly according to determined schedule is enough to reveal the commitment of Tata Motors towards its customers.
So, won't it be interesting to know about the featu…

Bible Verse
Come quickly, LORD, and answer me, for my depression deepens. Don’t turn away from me, or I will die. Psalms 143:7 (NLT)

Thoughts & Message
How I thank God for the honesty of David. When I went through a dark season in my life the Psalms were an oasis for my soul.
I would come to today’s verse and felt a deep assurance that God knew exactly how I felt. Why? Because He understood David’s plea. David cried out to God in his depression and requested, “Let me hear of your unfailing love each morning, for I am trusting you. Show me where to walk, for I give myself to you.” It was this deep trust in God that led him to the assurance that he would be delivered. David finishes the Psalm by writing, “May your gracious Spirit lead me forward on a firm footing. For the glory of your name, O LORD, preserve my life. Because of your faithfulness, bring me out of this distress.” Today, come to God with your deepest concerns, with your heavy heart and walk away like David with…
