Women's Bodybuilding Tips

Women’s bodybuilding is gaining more popularity in the past years, as people come to appreciate the benefits. Whereas a few years ago, there was a trend in women's bodybuilding for sheer size, there is now a growing appreciation of a more aesthetic look that combines balanced muscle growth with traditional female looks.

Women get a lot more tremendous benefits through bodybuilding, as a competitor or simply as a way of getting in shape. The main benefits are following.

Balanced physique: Many females tend to be bottom heavy – pear-shaped. Working with weights adds some bulk to the upper body providing a more balanced appearance.

Fat burning: Weight lifting is one of the most effective ways of burning off excess weight and keeping it off. For each extra pound of muscle that you add, you burn anywhere from 15 - 35 calories per hour, 24/7.

Healthy life-style: This can make a huge difference. Those who commit to the sport typically find themselves adhering to healthy habits. Having spent an hour working hard in the gym, you won't want to waste your efforts by eating junk food, smoking, or filling up on booze.

Bodybuilding for women means working out for fitness sculpting a tight, toned body. It means losing body fat and weight by working out with weights and performing a well-balanced cardio workout as well. Women are unable to grow muscles like men when they undertake a bodybuilding regimen. The testosterone that males naturally produce isn't produced in a woman's body in the same amount. Testosterone is what helps grow muscles, so unless women use testosterone supplements they won't grow the same way men do.

An intense cardio workout is also important as it will give you the strength and energy you'll need to continue your workout. Get on a treadmill or a stair step machine at least twice a week and work up a sweat.

Follow a strict diet plan also when you are undertaking a bodybuilding program. That doesn't signify depriving yourself of food, means changing your eating habits so that the things you put in your body work for you instead of against you. Lots of protein and carbohydrates and cutting down on your sugar intake. You should also be drinking lots and lots of water as well.

Diet is such an easy part of female muscle bodybuilding. It may seem a little complicated at first, but it becomes second nature very quickly. One of the easiest things you can do is start eating every 2-3hrs. This keeps your body with enough nutrients at all time to repair muscle. Your results will greatly improved if you start eating like this. As for workouts, just stick with the more complex ones like squats, deadlifts and bench press. The reason is that they work far more muscles at the same time. This creates much more stress, which ultimately stimulates more muscle growth.
