Train Smart and Hard, Not Long and Dumb.
Champion bodybuilders, I mean the true-blue, dinky die, unadulterated champions do things differently to the average gym junkie. I mean, they have to if they reach the upper echelons of this great sport. One of the things that separate them from the wannabes is their preparedness to do the things that others shun. Titleholders put themselves out there and do the hard yards, whether its within the training, dieting or preparation phase, put simply they will go the extra mile that the hacks just wont. This article concentrates on exercise choice. Exercise choice is a major variable in exercise prescription and your choices of exercises should be given careful consideration. Too many trainees choose exercises that they like, that stroke their ego or that they feel are easy and comfortable to do. Sound familiar? The problem is, it's at the expense of muscle development. So perhaps it's time to sit down and re-assess the exercises that you do for particular body parts and ask yourself whether you could be making more wise choices.
