Bodybuilding Myths



Most people would like to grow their muscles to larger sizes faster than they can do by eating a natural diet. By a natural diet, I mean simply getting enough protein, carbs and calories through everyday food and meals. While your diet should be giving your body the bulk of the required nutrition, bodybuilding supplements exist to help push you past your limits.

Bodybuilding supplements are only supplements, and should not be replacing a healthy diet and exercise regimen. You cannot take a bunch of supplement then hope to get huge muscles overnight. Don't even consider taking any supplements until you already have a high-protein diet and excellent weight lifting routine in place.

Once you have mastered the basics of diet and exercise alone, you have reached what is known as a plateau. This means that you need to step up your efforts before you can continue to grow. One way of doing this is through the proper use of bodybuilding supplements.

You will want to start out by looking into getting a protein supplement. Whey protein will do the trick, and should be consumed in between meals, and immediately after your workout.

Next, you might want grab some amino acids, BCAAs and/or glutamine to help supplement your muscles with the right kind of protein. These products should be taken in between meals and before/after going to the gym.

Finally, many find that pre-workout supplements, creatine and nitric oxide help increase the rate of muscle growth. While this may be true, don't just jump to these kind of supplements. You need to start with the correct foundation in place before you work your way up the supplement ladder.
