Female Bodybuilding Secrets

Female bodybuilding is a tough sport for most women to get into. Not only is there a total lack of information designed for the female bodybuilder, there is a stigmatism associated with it by society. I started out almost a decade ago and I learned a lot in my time. I had ups and downs. I learned a lot of lessons that really helped me do well in this sport. I want to take the time to share them with you.

Compound vs. Isolated

You have basically two types of exercises you can do; compound and isolated. Compound exercises are the ones that work many muscle groups at the same time. Isolated are the ones that work on one isolated muscle.

Studies have shown that the most compound your exercises are the most stimulated muscle growth you have for your entire body. The most common compound exercises are deadlifts, squats and bench press. They have an amazing effect on muscle growth because they put such a high stress on the body. If you don’t currently do any of these, than you need to start working them all into your workout.

Diet = Success

Your diet is the single most important thing that will bring you success. Nothing is more important. Your results will only be as good as your diet, so make sure you have this right. You need to eat smaller meals more often so your body can have a consistent flow of nutrients coming in to repair muscle tissue.
