Full Week Hardcore Workout Plan

Bodybuilder workouts firstly let me start off by telling you this. If you want to workout, get big, stronger, or just more healthy understand this: It is a long road to travel with many bumps and hills, but in the end if you'll be glad you took it. I've decided instead of doing one article on Training then one on Nutrition and so on, I'd write one on all the topics touching on everything.

Goals in Bodybuilder Workouts: 
Step 1: The first and up most important step to become a successful bodybuilder is setting goals. Think about it right now. Do you want to be the strongest man alive? Do you want to be able to protect yourself from others? Do you just want to look good and improve your charisma? Improve your skill in a sport? Anything you chose you should write down. Writing things down will help you remember. Do it every day, this way you won't forget and it only takes you a couple of minutes.

Step 2: Choose a deadline. This way it will be that extra push you need to get through the bodybuilder workouts. It will put a good kind of pressure on you, making you aware of the date and striving harder to reach that goal by the date. Most of the time you'll reach you goal before the deadline because of that positive pressure you put on yourself. Pressure is a good thing!

Step 3: Take action. get a calendar or a notebook and write down what you need to do each day in order to reach your bodybuilder workouts goals. Knowing what to do each day is a proven way to reach your goals. Make sure you finish everything on the same day you wrote it. Falling back will cause bad pressure and eventually make you quit training/working out altogether.

Nutrition plays a crucial role in gaining results. Eating fast food and junk isn't going to get you those six pack abs now are they? For our diet we are going to use a mass gain diet. here is an outline of what you will be eating/doing.

1. Eat healthy
2. More Protein
3. More Calories

I know you’re thinking more?! Yes more. Calories=mass no matter which way you put it. Eat earth foods like Potatoes and Beans. Protein is essential for muscle repair and growth. You should have around 2g for every pound of you per day. Don't go to your local Burger King and eat. Never eat fast foods or fatty food. Eat some salads or vegetables. These are good ways to be healthy and stay strong.

Most people tell you what to eat for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I like to let you judge. I don't know what you like eating so you have to do a little research and find out what you like that you can eat and you can’t eat. Remember when putting on muscle you will put on fat. Thats why when this is all said and done you cut.

Before getting started with anything you’re going to have to learn about what training/working out is.

1. Weight training/working out is something you pick up for a week and quit. Its long and tedious but can be very rewarding.
2. Weight training/working out will not get you faster or help cardio activity. It is for Muscle growth and Strength gain.
3. Weight training should not be done without supervision or at least an understanding of the subject.
4. Always stretch before working out. Pulling a muscle and/or injury is easy avoided by stretching.
5. Don’t train all day every day, that is called over training which we will learn about later.
6. Understand that you won't get big in a day, it takes months for growth but you will see results in weeks.
7. Understand Supplements are not bad, although some are.
8.Learn form period. Don't go swinging the weights. Swinging is only hurting you chances of muscle gain and improvement.

9.Eating right will not only help you at the gym (or home equipment) it will also give you an overall good feeling.
10.Get at least 8-10 hours of sleep this belive it or not is a big part of weight training.
11.Last but not least enjoy your workout, don't go in stressed,tired, or sick. Better to sit out, then have you body in a world of hurt. You want your body in a good condition ready for training.

  1. If you do stop exercising, try to at least stick to the diet to avoid gaining weight. You should also try to exercise on a regular basis, not to develop more muscle, but to maintain the condition of your body. JJenkins
