Today I am going to share with you a natural bodybuilding back workout that you can do from the comfort of your home with some adjustable dumbbells and a bench. I got a great back pump with this routine and I know that you will too!

As usual, this workout is short but intense! Two giant sets will take you around 7 minutes.

Remember that with a giant set you will do all exercises with no rest in between sets. You will only rest 60 seconds in between sets. Two giant sets will make this routine last around 7 minutes. If you add an extra giant set, then you will be looking at around 10 minutes. This workout will consist of the following exercises:

 

7 Min Giant Set Home Natural Bodybuilding Back Workout

Giant Set:

4) Two Arm Dumbbell Rows with a Twist: 2-3 sets of 8-12 reps (60 seconds)

Keep in mind that in order to be able to see your abs, you need to use a diet that will allow you to burn the extra body fat that is covering them. You can do all of the crunches in the world and you will not be able to see your abs if your abdomen is covered by a thick layer of fat. Following a good nutrition program that consists of 40-45% Carbs, 40-35% Protein, 20% Good Fats will put you on the right path to losing body fat (click here for more information on the Characteristics of a Good Diet). For a sample diet program please take a look at this one below:

Sample Natural Bodybuilding Fat Loss/Muscle Building Programs

Note: For guys that are at around 12% body fat and women at 15% you can implement a carbohydrate cycling protocol that enables you to go down to the lower body fat levels. For more information on carb cycling, take a look at this article: Get Lean with Carb Cycling.

Note 2: If you are looking for a supplement that helps to control your appetite and increases your energy, you may want to consider trying the Lean Body Fat Burner.

Introduction

Bodybuilding is following a lifestyle that uses weight training, cardiovascular exercise and nutrition to re-shape your physique through the increase of lean muscle mass and reduction of fat stores.

Can I Use Bodybuilding Even If I Do Not Want To Get Too Big?

But wait a minute! You never want to step on a bodybuilding stage, nor do you have dreams of getting that big anyways. If that is the case, not a problem! To me, a bodybuilder is anyone that uses weight training, cardiovascular exercise and nutrition to accomplish specific fitness goals.

In this bodybuilding site I share with you the knowledge I’ve gained through many years of practicing the bodybuilding lifestyle so that you too can achieve any physique goal you may have. How far you take your physique development or whether you ever get to compete or not are entirely up to you.

And if you fear getting too big by accident then believe me, that look will definitely not happen by mere chance. This is especially true for women since they do not produce the amount of testosterone needed to grow their muscles to the size that a man can accommplish. It takes years of strict adherence (almost to an obsessive level) to a bodybuilding lifestyle, in addition to calculated planning of your workouts and nutrition plan, to accomplish such an endeavor.

However, if getting really big and shredded (bodybuilding term for defined) is your goal, then no need to worry as in this site you will find all of the information you will need to accomplish that as well. [Read more…]

HalloweenWith Halloween just a day away I figured that many of you would like to make a nice sugary addition to your natural bodybuilding diet in the form of candy. As a result, I decided to share with you my tips on how to cheat on your bodybuilding diet. If you follow these tips you can actually use the extra sugars to your advantage. [Read more…]

Who says that you cannot attack your fat while going out to eat with friends and family?

This is one of the biggest myths in the history of weight loss and is part of the reason that the supplement industry has grown to become over a 55 billion dollar industry!

You see, going out to a nice restaurant and socializing is a great way to forget about all of the stress and problems you may be having at work. The problem is people do not know what or how to order a healthy meal while eating out. They simply follow what everyone else is doing instead of being conscious of their diets.

So in order to fix this problem, I would like to give you some quick guidelines that you must obey before you decide to go out to eat. They are as follows:
