*The Ten Commandments of
Natural Bodybuilding & Fitness Training

1. Thou shalt be drug free.
2. Thou shalt lift mostly Free weights.
3. Thou shalt lift for about an hour if training 3x per week, and about 1 to 1 and a half hours, if training only 2x per week.
4. Thou shalt go heavy and perform each "Work Set" to failure.
5. Thou shalt perform 3 to an occasional  max. of about 8 sets per body part.
6. *Thou shalt regularly take safe and effective natural bodybuilding supplements.
7. Thou shalt not sacrifice good form for heavy lifts.
8. Thou shalt, in general, take 1 day of rest in between workouts and do **Aerobics only on non-lifting days, if at all.
9. Thou shalt wear a ***weight belt during heavy overhead, deadlifting, or squatting exercises.
10. And last (but not least), Thou shalt study and learn The No Nonsense Guide to Natural Bodybuilding. Available in the members' area. Sign up for your free membership today!

Now Go and Grow Big and Strong.

* Please, consult with a qualified nutritionist.
** Do not rely on Aerobics as a way to lower or to maintain a desired weight. A much better choice would be to weight train and to (regularly) eat a balanced & healthy diet. In other words, eat right, and lower your overall caloric intake. As always, please consult with a qualified nutritionist to guide you. However, if you do decide to add Aerobics (to help speed results), aerobics should be performed before your first meal of the day and limited to about 20 (intense) minutes per session. Performing too much aerobics will actually slow down or sabotage your weight lifting results. So if your focus is not to win an upcoming bodybuilding contest - then you should be doing Aerobics to maintain cardiovascular health.
***Make sure your weight belt is snug, or it won't protect you. In general, the heavier the lift, the tighter the belt. However, do not make it so tight that you cannot breathe.
