Should Everyone Have Their Own Individual Workout Program
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Should everybody have their own bodybuilding workout tailored specifically for them to be able to build muscle.?Is there only one correct way to build muscle or are there other ways and does it differ from individual to individual.?My opinion is that muscle is muscle,the only difference is that some guys are more genetically gifted and build muscle quicker.Mesomorphs for example are bodybuildings chosen people.They are usually naturally athletic and muscular and build muscle easily.Ectomorphs are naturally skinny and struggle to build muscle.They are most often referred to as hard gainers.Endomorphs usually tend to be overweight and have slower metabolisms.

Regardless of the abovementioned muscle is still muscle and the Mesomorph might have more muscle fibres naturally than your typical endomorph but does this now mean that the type of workout should differ for these 2 types.?To be able to answer that question we must first establish what makes muscle grow.?There are various factors involved which can affect muscle growth,for instance:progressive overload,rep speed,workout duration,training session frequency and then also nutrition and recovery.

In order for muscle to grow it must be subjected to heavier and heavier weights.The most effective method to achieve this is to pyramid the weight on each subsequent set.A good example would be to start with a weight of 8 reps on the first set,6 reps on the second set,5 on the third set,4 on the fouth set and 3 on the 5th.You should rest at least 1 and a half minutes to 2 minutes between sets for bench press and squats.Also incorporate exercises that use 2-3 body parts at the same time.A good example is bench press,squatschins and dips and be sure to use primarily free weights.

Your rep speed should be fast but not so fast that you sacrifice good form and use only momentum as this could lead to injury.The idea is to raise the weight forcefully and lower it under control but do not do super slow reps as you will then not be able to lift as much weight,thereby not complying with the principle of progressive overload.

Workouts should not be longer than 55 minutes as growth hormone and testosterone peaks at about 45- 55 minutes maximum.Every body part should be trained at least 3 times per week as muscle can begin to break down after 72 hours. Do only 4 workouts per week on say Monday and Tuesday,then take Wednesday off and then train again on Thursday and Friday taking Saturday and Sunday off,maximising your recuperation.

It is also a good idea to include some volume and endurance training in your workouts.All sets must be done to failure.The abovementioned principles apply to everyone,regardless of your body type.
