How to safely avoid harmful over-training effects

Bodybuilding workout limitations are important to understand, as they can help you both build lean muscle mass and keep a great level of health

By combining weightlifting with free-weight programs and stimulating all muscle groups, different trainers have different methods to address their trainees’ personalized fitness plans, in full accordance with final target, body type and health status.

Training overload also needs to be discussed, with all the positive and negative aspects of extreme trainings. As metabolic and progress boosts can at some point be helpful for the athlete, under certain circumstances over-training can result in performance mistakes and anabolic hormone imbalances, which can be very harmful to the general long-term health.

As a common guideline, bodybuilding programs should be adapted according to goal, potential, body-status and limitations and overall health of each bodybuilder, as long as their particular comfort zone doesn’t get overlooked. Motivation, hard work and discipline are also key factors when commencing any transformation.

Also, always consider the quality of the main ingredients, processing and manufacturing technologies as main factors when choosing your vitamins, minerals and hormone intake, in order to obtain best of results.
