The Perfect Body building Exercise

So what is the perfect bodybuilding exercise or workout routine? READ ON.

Most people, when they plan out a workout routine, don't take into consideration the implication of each exercise on other areas of the body. Almost every individual exercise performed effects more than one group of muscles and therefore, is obviously more practical to design the workout that compliments only those areas.

Bodybuilders group exercises by body part and train one muscle group at a time. Working one muscle with 1-3 exercises ensures that you train it thoroughly. Experience says that this type of training is the most efficient for bodybuilding.

There are going to be times when it is unavoidable and you may end up working the same muscle group over two workouts, however as a rule it is better not to. It is also important to consider what you are trying to achieve; building Mass, definition, strength or all three. As a beginner it's important to emphasize on evaluating the best bodybuilding exercise since the first thing everyone thrives for is quick, visible a result.

The most prominent feature that lets everyone know you're working out is not below the waistline, though it's worth pointing out that that may actually be less prominent if you decide to take the easy rout of by taking illegal body enhancing substances. The most eye-catching is obviously your muscle mass.

Design your bodybuilding exercise routine to firstly build mass on the largest muscle groups. Every major muscle group should be developed to prevent muscle imbalance and the risk of injury and so you don't look like a freak. I see some of the guys who have a huge chest, back, arms, traps, but have the smallest legs. They might be able to put up 375 lbs 5 times (not a joke), but when you look at his legs, you notice he have never, ever even trained them. His arms might be 16", or whatever, but his claves are no bigger than 13".

To maintain symmetry and prevent muscle imbalance, choose bodybuilding exercises that train both side of the body simultaneously. The best way to start is to keep it simple, split the body into two sections, upper body and lower body. For the upper body; chest, shoulders and back is a good start, for the lower body thighs and calves. Remember 1-3 excesses; shoulder press, medium grip bench press and chin-ups are sufficient for upper body development as a starter. Squats, leg-press and calve raises complete the routine. All of these bodybuilding exercises work on both sides simultaneously whilst maintaining symmetry and muscular balance at the development stage.
