of bodybuilder are never going to complete (just as most people who play
basketball or car racing don't expect to enter NBA or NASCAR racing).
But whether you bodybuild with the aim of sculpting a competition
physique or are training to improve your performance at sports, to be
healthy and fit, to look and feel better, or to rehabilitate an injury,
all muscle building done correctly depends for its results on the same
basic exercise principle, that of progressive resistance training.
resistance training works because the body is designed to adapt and grow
stronger in response to greater amounts of stress than it is used to. If
you are used to jogging one miles a day, then running four miles puts
more demand on your muscles and the ability of your cardiovascular
system to supply enough oxygen and nutrients to keep the muscles
functioning under the stress of this greater demand. You may be in shape
to run two miles, but you have to get in better shape to run four miles.
Improving your conditioning in this case is a matter of increasing how
far you run and giving the body time to change and adapt to this
When it comes
to muscle building the same principle applies. The muscles are adapted
to dealing with a certain level of demand, specifically to a certain
amount of weight in your exercises lifted with a certain degree on
intensity. When you increase the amount of weight and/ or intensity,
your muscles have to become bigger and stronger to deal with it. Once
they have adapted to the new level of demand, you increase the amount of
weight and/ or intensity in your workouts so that your muscle will
continue to get bigger and stronger. In other words, you progressively
increase the demands you make on your muscles over time.
But not every
kind of training you do with weights is going to end up creating a
bodybuilding physique. You have to do the right kind of exercises, using
the right workout techniques, so that you send a specific message to the
nervous system that tells the body what kind of adaptation you wish to
achieve. This is called specificity of training and it is why learning
how to train the correct way is so crucial.
doesn't know what you think you are telling it to do, it only registers
and adapts to the specific instructions you are giving it by the way you
are working out. You may feel you are building muscle, you can be
working hard, sweating, getting tired and sore, but unless you care
sending the right message to the body, you are going to be disappointed
in your results. And the code in this case is a correct understanding of
the principles of progressive resistance bodybuilding training.
