When you first begin weight training, your view and understanding of the bodybuilding process is entirely different from those that have been around for a while.
I frequently get asked for training advice and what should be done when starting out. Well, the first thing I do is turn the question around. Instead, I inquire about what they already know about building muscle. The first thing to come up is obviously weight training and secondly they mention eating chicken and pasta or something.
While weight training is a fundamental aspect of bodybuilding, it by no means completes the equation. The unfortunate thing is, if they had a better understanding of the importance of nutrition, results would come soonerand the success rate would be higher.
Most of us, myself included, only learn this after months or even years of training.
You know that statistic that says nutrition counts for approximately 70 to 80 percent of bodybuilding success. Well, this is so true. In fact it is as true as two and two are four.
Nutrition absolutely governs the type of results you'll experience. What you put in you get out.
Now back to the issue as to why so many young people who start out with the intention of building muscle do not succeed.It basically comes down to the fact that they do not have a firm grasp of what it takes to succeed.Unfortunately this learning process takes time and requires consistency.
If you are new to the muscle building process, keeping the above two things in mind can assist you tremendously.
My advice is, train hard and eat right. If that does not work, come back and do it better next time.
