My name is Skip La Cour; I am a 6-time national champion, drug-free bodybuilder. You can learn how to improve your bodybuilding and training efforts by visiting my websites skiplacour.com, manformation.com, massmachinenutrition.com. And today I'm going to talk to you about bodybuilding. I want to talk about pumping iron for beginners. When you first get into the bodybuilding and training process it's very common for beginners to get really excited and want result overnight. The biggest thing that I can stress upon you is to be patient. Don't become so results oriented right from the beginning. Get more involved with the process. Learn about weight training. Learn about nutrition and stick to those principals and execute those principles every single day. One of the biggest challenges that beginners have is information overload. Taking in so many different strategies and then really not executing any of them. You want to select a training program. You want to select an eating program that you can believe in. It doesn't have to be perfect right from the start and just start executing. Set goals, document your progress. Those are some very important points to remember as a beginner to make sure that you have a very long career pumping iron.
