There are many different choices when it comes to choosing which bodybuilding routine is right for you and your lifestyle. You will never know for sure what works best until you get started and actually start experimenting to find out.
When you do find a workout routine that you do like it is still good to mix it up now and again. It is not a good idea to keep using the same workout over and over again for a long period of time.
This is because your body becomes conditioned to the workout and it does not really add any challenge for your body any more. Don't think that you need to switch out your routine on a daily or weekly basis. Changing things up every month or so is plenty to keep all the benefits of your workouts.
One fantastic bodybuilding routine you should try is called the pyramid workout. To do this you start your first set with really light weights. At the end of each set, you increase the weights more and more.
The idea behind this is that as your muscles become fatigued, they need to work harder and harder and as they do you are increasing the weight. You keep going until you get to the point that you can only lift one rep of the ending weight.
Here is an great example of what a lower body pyramid workout would look like:
* Squats: 2 warm-up sets then 1x10,1x7,1x4 (increasing weight each set)
* Stiff-Leg Deadlifts - 1x10,1x7,1x4 (increasing weight each set)
* The same routine would apply to other parts of the body; you just change the weight according to your limits.
Keep track of what you complete each workout. In fact, it is better to have everything planned out ahead of time. Keeping a logbook or notebook with what you did and how you felt is a great idea.
This lets you track your progress and gains over a long period of time. This will help you know when you hit a plateau and need to up your workouts some more. Keeping a routine is the best way to build that body and make the most of your workouts.
