Muscle-Building Workout and Diet

Do you know how to avoid overtraining while
bodybuilding? That’s not asked very often. Most people
focus on training, not over-doing it. I’ve heard that over-training can make you
weaker and cause you to lose muscle. Or that it can make you sluggish no matter what you
do. It can also damage your joints and ligaments. So how do you avoid it? Rest on rest days instead of running ten miles,
and don’t try to work your hardest every day. Vary your routine and muscle groups worked. That’s pretty standard. If things start to hurt, stop. They say no pain, no gain. Pain may gain you an arthritic knee in ten
years or a back injury to stall your workout for the next six months. It is normal to feel tired and sore after
a workout. There’s the dull ache of doing a lot of
reps and the pain that makes you want to grab a beer or pain pills. Any true pain means
something is wrong. Pain is your body’s warning system, though
it isn’t very specific. Pain won’t tell you if you tore something
or dislocated it, but you know exactly where the damage is. What is the solution? Track your workout, so you don’t work for
hours and end up derailing your workout plan by doing it for hours. Don’t push yourself
to workout harder to lose weight, if the intent is to lose fat, since you might be replacing
fat with muscle. So track body fat percentages as well as weight. Pick a diet that fuels muscle growth when
you are working on body-building so your diet doesn’t drain you of energy. That would explain the fatigue sometimes. And when you are tired, rest. Working through
the sleep kills your capacity. And common sense.
