Weight Training in Bodybuilding


My personal motto has always been: ” The more you know, the more you grow!”

“What you’ll be STUNNED to learn about me…”

To tell you all a little about myself, I am a graduate of the University of Western Ontario. My areas of study were primarily Kinesiology and Biomechanics. In short, muscle function and movement are my specialty – how to maximally shorten and extend a body part through it’s strength curve while maintaining maximal tension, is what WE’RE ALL AFTER! More on that shortly…

My passion for health and fitness is second only to my passion for helping others improve their lives. I know it sounds somewhat “cliché” but ask anyone who knows me, and they will tell you that I am one of those people that gives selflessly and LOVES to see the people around me succeed. I always say that “Living a successful life is never any fun on your own. Bring as many people along for the ride as you can!”

I have never viewed myself as an overly blessed individual (I was once a long distance runner and no one in my family works out). From day one, my life has been centered on learning the best information, from the best resources and brightest people who exist.

Weight Training in Bodybuilding

If you want to really concentrate on bodybuilding, weight training is an important part of your workout program.  Weight training in bodybuilding is a very huge part of any exercise regimen, but it’s not the only part.  However, when you have a strong weight training plan, your bodybuilding goals become easier to achieve.

In order to work certain muscle groups, you need to lift weights that will provide resistance to those areas.  As you start your weight training bodybuilding program, remember to start small and work your way up.  That means start out with a weight that is difficult to lift, but you are able to do it with some effort.  As that weight gets easier to lift, add more.  The idea is to build up slowly so you don’t risk injury to your body.

When you are weight training, you need to be sure that you are doing the exercises correctly.  Use extreme caution and feel the muscles as they work to lift the weights.  Your form is just as important as how much weight you are lifting, so pay special attention to how the exercises are done and perform them safely.

You will be doing some heavy lifting during weight training, so safety is very important.  When you are doing squats or dead lifts, you put a strain on your lower back.  It’s a good idea to wear a weight belt when performing these exercises to minimize the risk of injury.  Weight belts provide support to your lower back as well as keep your spine aligned so you don’t do an exercise improperly.
One important result of weight training in bodybuilding is increased physical performance.

Muscles quite literally utilize energy to produce movement, functioning as the engine or powerhouse of the body. Strength training increases the muscles’ size, strength, and endurance, which contribute to improvements in our work, our favorite sports and hobbies, and our general day-to-day activities.
Your physical appearance will improve with a weight training program as your body burns fat for energy to lift those weights.  When you burn fat, you lose weight and gain muscle tone.  Weight training also prevents muscle loss that can lead to a flabby body.  Obviously, the resist you get during weight training will help develop your muscles in new and exciting ways.

Weight training is a big part of a bodybuilding program.  If you want to have well-defined muscles, you must incorporate weight training in your exercise plan.  You will realize huge results with your efforts and have a better looking, healthier body in the process.
