Here are some great quick and easy bodybuilding tips that will give you results faster.

Lifting More Weights

One thing that will make the biggest difference to your muscle gain is if you are able to add more weight to the bar.

Over the course of a few months you need to be adding more weight and lifting more weight.

A great bodybuilding workout should include the lifting of heavier and heavier weights. If you have added as much weight as you can then you can start to look at supersets, drop sets and so on, this gives you the ability to add more weight later on.

One Rep Short of Failurerep

The second thing that you need to look in bodybuilding is the rule on failure. There are some that believe you have to lift to failure for every set so that you can build muscle.

It is true that you need to push the muscles past their own comfort level, but it can cause issues when you are lifting to failure every time.

Your central nervous system will fatigue for instance and you will not have the energy to do another exercise.

You will want to do a few exercises in each of your workouts, so aim to go one or two reps short of failure.

You will still be pushing your body hard and working on the intensity that is needed to build muscle, but it won’t destroy you.

Work Two Muscles Groups at Once

You need to focus on compound exercises in bodybuilding. You will have a limited time to workout so rather focus 80% of it on working at least two muscle groups.

Attention to your Body Before and After a Workout

You need to give your body fuel before and after your bodybuilding workout. You need to make sure that you fulfilling the amino acids your body uses to create new muscle mass and you have to have carbohydrates that will give you energy to create new muscle tissue.

Change It

If you feel that you are not gaining any more muscle from your bodybuilding workout then you have hit a plateau. You can avoid this by changing just one thing in your workout program every week.

Rest

Also don’t forget that rest is important and you need time to recover. Your body needs time to recuperate before you go back to the gym.
