  3. Get plenty of rest between workouts, make sure the muscle has recuperated before the next sessions. Rest atleast one minute between sets.
  4. Change the exercise routine after every 4-5 weeks (atleast). Try to increase the intensity at each workout.

  6. Avoid cardiovascular exercise in the begining period.
  7. Do 8-12 reps and 3-4 sets per body part for a smaller muscle group and 5-6 sets per body part for bigger one.
  8. Train an upper body part and then lower body part (rest one body part, work the other). This is goof for motivation and saves time.
  9. If your body takes longer recuperation time while you perform workouts then take more rest days. Try to sleep 8 to 10 hours per day especially imporatant to those with high metabolic rate.
  10. Eating regularly and correctly is absolutely essential for getting a true bodybuilder physique.

    Carbohydrate - 40-45%

    Fats - 20-25%
