As a beginner, you must understand that bodybuilding consists of progressive resistance exercises. Therefore, the general idea is to start slow and light and progressively increase the pace, and the resistance/weight. You don’t have to be overwhelmed by the many body building instructions and guides. Just keep this basic concept in mind and you will be on your way to a beautifully sculpted body as you progress.

It Is Better To Be Safe than Sorry

It Is Better To Be Safe than Sorry-GymMembershipFeesThe safe and right way to start is to ask your doctor if it is alright for you to engage in a body building program. You should also tell him about the bodybuilding program that you intend to undergo in a gym like Cross Fit. He knows your general state of health so he should be able to tell you if your chosen program will do you good or not. Only after he has given you his go-signal should you start on your workouts and exercises in a gym such as Gold’s Gym.
