Big Muscles - Not As Easy As It Looks

As Americans, we are constantly looking for a quick fix. Building Big Muscles is no exception. We continually seek the easiest and quickest way to obtain the best results. However, in the case of true bodybuilding, quick and easy are not parts of the workout regiment. While that might be discouraging to some, future muscle men and woman take heart, with the right training and good technique that ripped body might be closer than you think.

First things first, take some time to learn from the pros. Pick-up a good workout book from your local bookstore or library and find out what works for professionals. In addition, consider hiring the expertise of a trainer. They can get you started on a solid workout program, targeted to meet your specific goals in building Big Muscles.

Keep in mind that old adage, “RomeWasn’t Built in a Day,” as you are starting your Big Muscles program. Consider targeting specific areas. Perhaps you want rock hard abs. Take some time on exercises that will work this area. If you are looking to firm up all over, start with a basic program to get everything in good general condition, then build-up specific parts as you start to see results.

Make the commitment to go the extra mile. Building a great body with Big Muscles is a lot of hard work. It is not something that comes quickly or easily, but if you go into a program with realistic expectation of results, you will be pleasantly surprised at how you will begin to see progress. With that being said, you need to start out with a solid program and make the time to do it on a regular basis. Once a week is not going to cut it. A solid fitness program requires a minimum of four days a week.

Anyone who has started an exercise program can tell you that the first week is the easiest. The third and fourth weeks are when the true test begins. When things get tough and you think you are not making progress keep telling yourself “I will stay the course.” Also, remember that everyone hits plateaus in their workout programs. Keeping this in mind at the onset will help you through those difficult times. Another thing to consider is that even if you are not seeing results outwardly, there are immense changes taking place inside. Think about starting your program with a body fat reading. When things seem to be leveling out, go in for another reading. There is a good chance you have seen a decrease in this area even if it does not show yet.

Body Beautiful

BRISBANE: In a former life, buff Brisbane body builder Vicky Thomas was unfit, out of shape and struggling for motivation.

While the 37-year-old wasn’t fat, she wasn’t a lean, mean muscle machine either.

But in a decade of dedication, Ms Thomas hoisted herself to the top of the Australian body building arena and then moved on to conquer the world in New York.

Ms Thomas was last month crowned Ms Fitbody at the International Natural BodyBuilding Federation (INBF) titles in America, a totally drug-free competition.

“It was a great thrill to win,” Ms Thomas said.

“It made all the commitment worthwhile and now I want to win more international titles next year.”

The heady heights of world acclaim are a long way from the day Ms Thomas took the first step toward changing her body image and turned her life around with a gym membership 10 years ago.

“I started going to my local gym to lose weight and tone up. I decided to try my first figure contest less than six months ago and in that short amount of time I have won two Australian titles and a world title,” she said.

“It’s a lot easier to lose fat than people think.

“There’s no trick to it it’s just consistency.

“There has to be a deficit in the amount of calories you put into your body and the amount you burn off through exercise.”

The next goal on Ms Thomas’ agenda is the World Championships in 2009 but to achieve her ambition she needs some financial support.

“I aim to compete at the World Championships again in 2009 and am eagerly seeking sponsors to help further my competition career.”
