Pick up Your Pen or Pencil, And Then Pick up the Weights

Aug 31, 2008
If you have been trying to turn your fat into muscle, and have not noticed any difference after the first few weeks passed, there is probably a good reason for this. Many people mistakenly think that as long as they keep an exercise routine up they will stay in shape and lose weight. They are right about staying in shape, but you cannot burn fat into muscle if you do not change your exercise routine occasionally. This is why if you want to start to see advancement in your muscle mass and a decrease in your fatty tissue, you are going to have to start copying the techniques of famous body builders and change your routine on a regular basis, and depending on how serious you are, potentially a daily basis. Thinking how about confusing this could get? Well you're right, it can get confusing quickly and you may end up forgetting what you are doing from one day to the next, which is why you should follow the first step of professional bodybuilders, pick up you pencil and paper.

Surprised, well you should not be. There will b plenty of time to pick up the weights in a few minutes, but if you are going to be able to successfully keep up with a varied routine, you are going to have to keep an exercise log to record each day's activities in. Experts and bodybuilders alike have found that by varying a routine by the amount of sets and repetitions performed will help your build your muscles in a more efficient manner because you are working them every single time you exercise instead of letting them fall into a routine that they grow used to and grow stagnant at.

Basically this means that just like after you perform the same task at work for while, you do it without thinking and without learning anything new about the process. For your muscles, once they adjust to a routine they can do it without feeling any stress therefore they do not grow at all. If you carefully record each day what your exercise routine existed of, you will be able to change it every day that week without choosing too similar of exercises in too close of a time span. You want to perform a variety of exercises, that all target the same area, but in different ways if you hope to achieve a finely toned result.

By keeping track of each change you make in your routine and which ones seemed to work, and which ones don't you are creating a log of how to correctly build your own muscles. You should also record how you felt after each day of exercise so that you can avoid doing exercise routines that are too hard on your body or leave you with too much expendable energy. If you don't feel anything after a workout, chances are your muscles did not either which is a very good indicator to leave that exercise with a big red X over it. You can build your muscles, but it will take some time and careful documentation to do so.
