When it comes to looking through all of the bodybuilding programs for sale on the Internet these days, it isn’t always easy to decide which ones are effective and which ones are simply a bunch of rehashed and jumbled muscle building tips. Over past 12 years, I’ve bought many of the best selling bodybuilding workout programs both online and offline, and read through them just to see if they were any good. What I discovered is that each of the workouts and bodybuilding training systems was different based on the views and beliefs of the authors.
If you’re a beginner keep in mind that while any well pieced together bodybuilding program can help you achieve your goals, there are definitely a few guiding principles that you should follow when trying to pick a muscle building program that will be the right fit for you. If you ignore these tips and make a quick decision to purchase a program, ebook or muscle building system without thinking it over first you may be throwing your money away by purchasing a program that you will never use.
One of the huge differences between all of the bodybuilding programs for sale these days is the fact that each set of authors has a unique writing style that helps to tie their manual or book together. What I’ve found is that if you don’t like the writing style of the program, then you won’t take the time to read it through thoroughly. Often times not taking the time to read and re-read before starting a workout routine can mean the difference between success and failure.
Another area where I see people fall flat on their faces when trying to decide between one of the bodybuilding programs is they don’t take the time to find an author with experiences similar to theirs. This is really not rocket science, it’s just a process of realizing who you are and where you’re coming from and investing some time and effort into finding a muscle building program that was designed by someone who’s been through some of the exact same things that you have.
If you’re already a big guy who just needs to build a bit of muscle and strip away body fat then seek out an author who has had to battle with this goal as well, this is a surefire way to make ensure that you can identify with the authors point of view and bodybuilding philosophy. On the other hand, if you’ve never experienced the frustration of being too skinny or having to bust your butt to strip away body fat, then how in the world will you be able to relate to someone who has struggled with this their whole lives? The short answer here is that you simply won’t and chances are that if the message and experiences of the author don’t resonate with you neither will their bodybuilding advice and muscle building workouts.
As far as the muscle building program itself goes, you also need to make sure that you’re comfortable with the author specific muscle building strategy and technique. If the author believes that high repetition volume training is the best way to pack on muscle mass and you already know that you can’t stand to train this way for very long, then how do you expect to make the program work for you?
The muscle building process is completely individual. There are literally thousands of ways to go about making it happen. What I’ve noticed over the years is that long term muscle building success is typically a function of someone having access to the right bodybuilding information and the right time, in a format that they can identify with. You have to like your workouts to the point of getting excited even thinking about hitting the gym. You have to read and re-read each and every line in your chosen bodybuilding program until you completely understand what you need to be doing to build muscle mass. And you need to believe that your program will actually lead you towards your goals.
Invest the time to do some research before buying any of the popular bodybuilding programs. While there are a bunch of really good muscle building programs and workouts available these days, you’re not going to get a whole lot out of it if you don’t implement the advice and implement the workouts the way their supposed to be implemented. By thinking through what you want to accomplish with your bodybuilding program and taking the time to do a bit of research, you can almost guarantee that you will identify the best muscle building program for you and move towards your goal of building muscle mass fast.
