I want to give free advice to the female bodybuilders out there. This is a tough sport for both men and women, but it seems to be twice as hard for women because there just doesn't seem to be much support for us. That doesn't mean we can't succeed though.
- Bulk Up or Cut Down: You essentially have two choices; are you going to bulk up or cut the fat off? Most people are pretty surprised that you can't do both at the same time. If you try to do both at the same time, you're not maximizing your results. The best bodybuilders in the world cycle between bulking and cutting. Most people that start out do bulking because when you put on all that extra muscle, it makes you much more efficient at taking off the fat. Bulking is essentially putting on as much muscle as possible while minimizing fat increases. Cutting is essentially removing as much fat from your body while maintaining as much muscle as you can.
- Compound Exercises: You should have priority set to compound exercises. A compound exercise is one that works many muscle groups at the same time. There is also isolated exercises that work just one muscle group at a time. Compound always come first because it has been shown to stimulate more muscle growth. When you goto the gym, do your compound exercises first and if you have time, do your isolated ones.
- Eat Every 2-3 Hours: You need to start eating smaller meals, more often because your body needs a constant flow of nutrients throughout the day to repair muscle tissue. Protein for example, only stays in your system for roughly 2-4hrs depending on what type of protein you eat. Whey protein stays even less at under an hour. Once your system no long has protein, your muscles aren't being repaired to the maximum potential.
This is my free advice for the female bodybuilders. I hope this serves you well.
