Teenage bodybuilding is on the rise today. Many teenagers have signed up at their local gyms to see if they can enhance their appearance and their athletic abilities with the use of a bodybuilding workout program. So, the popularity of teenage bodybuilding leaves many parents wondering what risks and benefits may be involved for their kids.

The benefits of teenage bodybuilding:
First and foremost, muscle building exercise gets teens moving. It pulls them away from the television, the computer or the video games and gives them the opportunity to develop strong and healthy bodies. However, it is important that those involved in teenage bodybuilding understand how to workout safely and what their own limitations are.

As with adults, when teens first start a bodybuilding workout program, it’s best to work with a trained professional who can help construct a safe and effective routine that will produce results quickly. Once involved in the sport of bodybuilding, many teen athletes will develop the dedication and discipline that is required to excel in any sport. Teenage bodybuilding also helps to improve confidence levels, self-esteem and work ethics.

Physical benefits that accompany teenage bodybuilding include increased muscular strength and endurance, increased kinesthetic awareness, stronger bones and a reduced risk for weight related illnesses such as high blood pressure and diabetes.

The mental and physical benefits of teenage bodybuilding will continue to payoff long after these athletes have matured into adults. As with most sports, bodybuilding gives teens a focus and it empowers them to better themselves through their own efforts.

The risks of teenage bodybuilding:
For many years, one of the greatest concerns for teenage bodybuilding was that putting growing bodies under the strain of heavy weights over and over would cause premature closure of the growth plates resulting in stunted growth. This theory has never been proven, and if teenage bodybuilding is done properly, under the supervision of trained adults, the chances of any injuries occurring are greatly reduced.

Another concern in the sport of teenage bodybuilding is the improper or illegal use of bodybuilding supplements. The most obvious concern is teen’s exposure to or use of illegal steroids. As athletes get more involved in teenage bodybuilding, they start to look for more ways to build muscle fast. If they have access to steroids, there is always a concern that they will disregard the dangers of steroid use for the chance to enhance their appearance faster. Additional concerns are for the improper use of legal bodybuilding supplements. Again, supplement advertisers are good at what they do, making their supplement lines seem like a critical component in bodybuilding nutrition. There are supplements that teens can safely take if they follow instructions carefully; however, it is always best for young athletes to fuel their workouts with whole foods and vitamins.

The bottom line to weighing the risks and benefits of teenage bodybuilding, as with any sport, is that with proper training and supervision bodybuilding can be a safe and effective way for teens to improve physical health and mental strength. There are safety issues inherent to any sport; however, adult participation and athlete education go a long way in minimizing the risks.

Idiotic Mistakes Using Superset Training To Build Muscle!

By Jeff Anderson

By now you should know that “superset” training is the best training method for any fitness goal, whether you want to build muscle or burn fat.

Unfortunately, I see WAAAAAY too many people using this technique incorrectly…and it’s time to set the record straight!

By now you should know that “superset” training (where you perform one exercise back-to-back with another exercise) is NOT just an “advanced” training technique for the gym.

It’s actually the best training method for any fitness goal, whether you want to build muscle or burn fat.

Unfortunately, I see WAAAAAY too many people using this technique incorrectly…and it’s time to set the record straight!

Here’s the deal…

Your muscles have 7 “types” of fibers which can be broken down into 2 “main” types (fast-twitch and slow-twitch)

And each set of fibers has it’s own purpose…AND it’s own preference for how it likes to be trained.

Depending upon your goal, you’ll want to train a bit differently.

You see, slow-twitch muscles are used mostly for endurance activities and prefer to be trained with lower weights and higher repetitions.

On the other hand, your fast-twitch muscles are the ones you use for strength and power and like heavy weights with lower reps.

But since both types have the ability to grow, you’ll want to attack BOTH in your workouts.

That means higher reps and lower weights for your slow-twitch muscles and lower reps and higher weight for your fast-twitch muscles.

Here’s an example of how to train your chest for size…

(And then I have a little “suprise” that blows any method you’ve EVER seen out of the water!

But first…

Superset For Bigger Muscles

Exercises Used:

Superset Incline Dumbbell Press with Pushups

Execution:

With an incline bench at about 30 degrees, knock out a HEAVY set of about 4-6 reps.

Then IMMEDIATELY after you’re done, get on the floor and do as many pushups as you can do before crashing to the ground in a pile of your own drool!

Here’s why it works…

By hitting your muscles with that heavy compound exercise set first, you blast away at your fast-twitch fibers.

But then you come in and really destroy your “slow-twitchers” by extending your set with a massive “pump” that fills your chest up with blood and muscle-building hormones and nutrients!

But this is NOTHING compared to the method I can show you at my website Advanced Mass Building. There show you the 5 BIGGEST MISTAKES most guys make when it comes to their mass routines. I promise you…you’re making at least ONE of them! But don’t worry…I also show you how to solve every one of these problems and how to jumpstart new gains like never before.
