Among the biggest problems a novice bodybuilder faces is identifying just how much to train. When they start a bodybuilding program, after having never worked out with weights before, the body normally responds relatively fast. The brand-new bodybuilder can see gains in muscle size and a firming of the body within the very first couple of weeks and this encourages them to train more difficult.
This is where the problems start to start. After the initial burst of muscle advancement, the body will begin to plateau for a while, and increasing the training will only lead to a case of over training. Over training occurs when the muscles haven’t had adequate time for recovery.
When the muscles go through weight training, the primary procedure of advancement takes place throughout the recovery duration when the muscle cells are rebuilt, to handle the increased demands of the weight lifting. It is during this ‘rebuilding’ procedure that the muscles end up being larger, and without adequate healing the muscles won’t have time to reconstruct the cells.
This leads to the muscle getting over worked and growth is stunted. Without the proper understanding, the novice bodybuilder believes that they need to train even harder to keep the gains that they were seeing in the initial phases of their weight lifting program. Thus begins the downward spiral of increasingly more over training, and the resultant lack of muscle development and fatigue.
With correct assistance the bodybuilder will have the ability to see when they are entering into a state of over training and permit themself a little more time to recover. This might involve having a few days rest from exercise, or more rest days in between training sessions. Alternatively, the over qualified bodybuilder might require to decrease the amount of weights raised during a training session.
Minimizing the intensity of the training will help to remove the possibility of injury and other health associated problems as the body’s body immune system is put under tension.
People who are just starting bodybuilding for the very first time require to be warned of this procedure prior to they start training so they can plan their weight lifting program in such a way that they will continue to see gains in muscle size and physical fitness and decrease the possibility of the plateau periods where they appear to be making little or no development.
After the preliminary burst of muscle advancement, the body will start to plateau for a while, and increasing the training will just lead to a case of over training. Over training takes place when the muscles haven’t had enough time for healing.
Therefore starts the down spiral of more and more over training, and the resultant absence of muscle growth and fatigue.
