Bodybuilding is the process of developing muscle fibers through various
techniques. It is achieved through muscle conditioning, weight training,
increased calorie intake, and resting your body as it repairs and heals itself,
before restarting your workout routine.
Workouts are designed to focus on specific muscle categories or groups, and
foods are consumed with the intention to build the body's metabolism and
increase overall mass.
This section will focus on weight training for body builders. Weight training
develops both strength as well as the size of skeletal muscles.
It uses the force of gravity to oppose the force generated by muscles through
contraction. Weight training uses a variety of specialized equipment
designed to target specific muscle groups and movements.
Some people refer to weight training as strength training. While they are not
exactly the same, they are both similar to each other.
Strength training focuses on increasing muscular strength and size. Weight
training is one type of strength training using weights as the primary force to
