Muscle Workout - What Is The Best Method?

Aug 12, 2008
If you are looking for a great muscle workout, you might be surprised to know that many body building professionals agree that you should work on 1 muscle group at a time. Usually, this involves focusing on a muscle group for a period of 1 week. Then, you can move on to the next muscle group. There seems to be some debate among training professionals as to whether it is more effective to do it by single group muscle, or an over all body work out 3 times a week. However, there is a significant amount of these professionals who agree with the 1 muscle group at a time plan.

An effective and safe muscle workout will be designed for maximum muscle growth in a minimum of time spent working out. You should keep your repetitions to 12 and your sets to a minimum. This is because natural bodybuilders need to avoid over training. Your muscles need to be stimulated to their maximum in as short a time span as possible.

Some rules to remember include:

* Work each body part once a week.
* You should also workout 5 times a week, choosing the days that work best for you.
* Workout times should never be more than 45 minutes.
* In lifting, you should lift for 1 -2 seconds and lower for 2 seconds per repetition.
* Another very important thing is to be sure to rest one and a half to two minutes between each set.
* In your muscle workout, you should do at least 6 sets, but not more than 9 sets for each muscle group.

While you can choose the days to perform your workout, there are some things to keep in mind. Your workouts should be prioritized in order to get the most from them.

* On the days you have chosen to work out 2 body parts, you will work the part of your body where you want the most growth first. You should do this because the second body part will be a bit tired and will not perform fully.
* Give the body parts you want to focus on a day where you work only those parts.
* When you do only single body part workouts, go through the full 9 sets.
* Warm ups are important in a muscle workout. You should do one warm up set prior to exercising each body part, using half the weight you will use for the first real set. Do 12 - 15 repetitions and rest for one and a half to 2 minutes before beginning the first set.

Now that you have seen some of the suggestions for a good workout to build your muscles, you can do your own research to find the best workout plan for you. Always make sure you are being safe while engaging in any workout program.
