5. Drink plenty of Water
Without water your body will fall into catabolic state. Around 70 % of the body is water. The body uses water for almost all its functions including digestion, absorption, circulation, excretion, transporting nutrients, building tissues, maintaining blood volume, and maintaining body temperature.
Your body builds muscle while you rest, not in the gym. The muscle gets damaged by lifting weights.Then it needs the proper nutrients and time to repair itself.
7. Don’t Overtrain
This is maybe the most overlooked factor in the world of bodybuilding. Overtraining is a physical, behavioral, and emotional condition that occurs when the volume and intensity of an individual’s exercise exceeds their recovery capacity. Overtraining will cause a cease in progress, loss of strength and in some cases can make you sick. In the everyday life, more work means greater result.But in the world of bodybuilding – more is not better.
