Natural bodybuilder:

The development of the musculature of the body through specific types of diet and physical exercise, such as weightlifting, especially for competitive exhibition. Bodybuilding is the process of developing muscle fibers so the combination of weight training, increased caloric intake, and rest. The high levels of muscle growth and repair achieved by bodybuilders require a very specialized diet. The bodybuilders require anything between 500-1000 calories above their maintenance level of food energy while attempting to increase body mass. A sub-maintenance level of food energy is combined with cardiovascular exercise to lose fats in the body then it prepares for a contest. The ratios of food energy from carbohydrates, proteins, and fats depending on the goals of the bodybuilder.

Foods to be taken equally:

Bodybuilders usually split their food intake for the day into 5 to 7 meals of roughly equal nutritional content and attempt to eat at regular intervals (normally between 2 and 3 hours).It is a thought to allow greater absorption of nutrients and increase basal metabolic rate. People trying to lose weight also use the process. Most of the bodybuilders take steroids or drugs to make their body.

Over training:

Over training is regarded as one of the biggest and most common problems body builders face. When a bodybuilder has trained hard over the course of a training schedule and is extremely fatigued due to lack of required rest from previous workouts. It is thought to decrease muscle growth and inhibit strength gains. Sufficient recovery time is generally seen as an important factor for bodybuilding at any level. Many bodybuilders train almost every day (even several times a day for professionals) and it is important for sufficient recovery time (usually 2-3 days) is allowed between training the same muscle groups. Bodybuilders should design their training programs to allow time for recovery and growth. Over training can also lead to a weakened immune system, making it harder for the bodybuilder to fight off a cold or infection. It is possible to perform double-split workouts, each lasting several hours for a very small percentage of the very advanced, chemically enhanced. Listen to your body, if you are sore, rest, not train the same muscle group again. Strength training research world documented conclusively that workouts consisting of 3 sets of 8-10 repetitions of a particular exercise stimulated an increase in muscle mass and muscular strength.

Signs of over training:

1. Excessive Muscular Soreness (which persists > 48 hours)
2. Sudden changes in sleep patterns
3. Weight and strength fluctuations
4. Mood swings and depression (it can happen in drug free trainees)
