And today I'm going to talk to you about bodybuilding. How to develop muscle? Put very simply the way to develop muscle is to train with weights in the gym. You need to force yourself to overload to targeted muscle group with more and more way. You need to challenge yourself to as more way than you have done the time before. Once you stimulate the muscle building process with weight training you will need to rest, recover and recuperate. That means you can't train that body part again until it's fully recovered. During that rest and recovery period you need to make sure you really pay attention to your eating habits. Nutrition is a very important part of the muscle building process. And while your body is recuperating you need to back that up with sound nutritional habits. After you trained, you rested and recovered and backed that rest and recovery with good nutritional habits, you have to train the muscle again. Doing that over and over and over again is what helps you build muscle. Now you want to make sure that you train every body part with the same amount and intensity the body parts you are about to train and really focus during those workout sessions when you train body parts that you are not quite as thrilled to train. That's how you develop your physique in a nice, beautiful and balanced manner and that's how you develop muscle.
