Do you have too much fat and not enough muscle? Not only is this unsightly and can undermine your self confidence but it can also be unhealthy!

And when your health begins to deteriorate because of such excess fat, you must think hard about beginning bodybuilding. I will be honest; it is not going to be easy. But with the secrets in this article you must find it simpler than you might have thought.

The best way to start is by getting rid of all that extra fat, and a healthy diet is by far the best way to do so. Eat food low in fat, in addition to incorporating vegetables and food high in lean protein. Negative calorie fruits like lemons and oranges can burn out fat as well as give you a balanced diet. You should also drink a lot of water and refrain from intoxicating substances like alcohol and cigarettes.

You should think about beginning bodybuilding right away as well since the more muscle you have the more fat your body will burn. Begin with jogging and cycling exercises to boost your level of endurance, since you are going to be doing weight lifting in the coming weeks. Endurance exercises must be done at least five times a week.

The next step is to do light muscle building exercises. Such exercises include: press ups; push ups; skipping; legs ups and sit ups. The reason why these should be light is that your muscles will still be too weak to endure heavy exercises, and they can be damaged in the process.

When you are in full shape you can then start seriously lifting weights. Start by using light weights you can handle, and then gradually move onto to heavier weights. This makes sure muscles do not get fatigued and torn, things that can affect you negatively.

When beginning bodybuilding, it is important to remember that you should do the exercise very slowly. Lift the weight to a count of 5 and hold it for a count of 5 then go back to the starting position for a count of 5. You should lift the heaviest weight you can handle and once you can do 10 reps easily, move on to a heavier weight.
