Natural Bodybuilding – 5 Elements For A Complete Bodybuilding System

By Gerry Marsh

Natural bodybuilding, whether you are a beginning bodybuilder or a seasoned pro requires that your bodybuilding program is a complete system. You simply cannot build masses of muscles quickly and maintain a toned, sculpted body by going about bodybuilding in a haphazard fashion.

Natural bodybuilding is not about tossing all of the bodybuilding supplements in the trash and then spending countless hours in the gym training hard. This will only lead to exhaustion and potential injury.

There are many bodybuilding programs available to choose from that offer natural bodybuilding methods. Most of these programs are good as far as they go. But many of them only provide part of the picture and do not provide a complete system for natural bodybuilding.

Building muscle requires that five elements be included in any natural bodybuilding program:

=> Strength training

=> Aerobic Exercise

=> Endurance Training

=> Proper Diet With Healthy Nutrition

=> Rest – Including Adequate Sleep

If you make sure your program includes all five elements, you will build muscle faster and actually spend less time in the gym.

Strength training is usually done in the gym and can take very little time if done correctly. Your workout can take as little as three minutes, three times a week, working two muscle groups each day, for roughly one and a half minutes. But you need to put maximum effort into it. If you can do more than 6 or 8 reps, you are not working your muscles hard enough.

Follow strength training with aerobics to build endurance. You really don’t need to think about this as long as you are doing everything else. Endurance will build on its own, naturally.

Don’t think of aerobic exercise as something you do just to lose weight. Even if you are not trying to lose weight aerobic exercise is still necessary. It helps build muscle, keeps fat off, builds endurance, and strengthens your heart. Some type of aerobic activity three times per week is essential in a natural bodybuilding program.

You have to feed your muscles if you want them to grow. If you do not get enough proper nutrition, they will actually feed on themselves. Follow a good, healthy diet for muscle building. Include protein, as well as other needed vitamins, minerals, and nutrients.

Rest is something that is often overlooked in our busy world but it is crucial to build muscles. You are not building muscles while you are lifting weights. Your muscles grow when they are at rest. They need this down time to rest and repair themselves. If you are tired, so are your muscles. Get adequate rest and help you muscles grow.

The best natural bodybuilding programs cover all of the essential elements in several ways. Most programs include ebooks, special reports, audio and sometimes video. The top bodybuilding programs also include ongoing coaching as well software to track your nutrition and workout progress.

And all natural bodybuilding programs stress building muscles and getting toned without the benefit of synthetic drugs that come out of someones’ lab. Supplements are important, but they should be natural, wholesome supplements, not dangerous drugs.
