Currently, there are thousands of online enthusiasts
who are taking the plunge and joining the community
of affiliate marketers. With e-commerce booming,
and the internet dominating the business world,
becoming an affiliate marketer is a very wise choice.
To be successful with affiliate marketing, it's always
best to learn the basics of the affiliate marketing
business, then realize what sacrifices will need
to be made for you to accomplish your goals. To
get to the top of affiliate marketing, you'll need
to make the necessary sacrifices.
Before you join any type of program, you should
learn as much as possible about the company. It's
actually very easy to research companies, as search
engines are easily the one of the most primary
sources for information. To be on the safe side,
you should ensure that the program and company has
been operating for several years - which can be
easily and properly verified.
If the company has just started, make sure that
the owner has good credibility. Although becoming
an affiliate marketer doesn't have to be a complex
task, you should always use caution.
Many individuals are under the impression that you
can earn a lot of money with affiliate marketing
and not have to invest a penny. Even though
the majority of these programs are free to join,
you'll have to invest money at some point in
time during your affiliate marketing career.
More than likely, this money will be used for
advertising and the promotion of web sites. In
most scenarios however, the amount of money spent
will be earned back with a little bit of time.
Making it as an affiliate marketer will take
time, effort, and a lot of hard work. The more
of these qualities you put into your business,
the greater the success you'll achieve. You
should always be willing and ready to stick with
your program to build up your earnings.
You'll also need to design a variety of different
strategies and methods, which range from creating
web sites to product promotion. You'll also need
to advertise, as well as keep in constant contact
with your affiliates. You should be ready to
put in the most time during the first few months
of your program, as once your network begins to
get established, your work load will lighten.
Even though the system of affiliate marketing
may seem overwhelming at first, you should realize
that you are surrounded by online support. A
lot of the individuals who join affilate programs
are new to the business.
Many organizations and companies have around the
clock support forums and customer support for
those affiliates who need advice or assistance.
A lot of web sites are equipped with e-books,
tutorials, articles, and tips that will make your
quest of becoming an affiliate marketer a little

The truth behind affiliate marketing is the fact that
90% of affiliates will actually make less than 100$
a month. Therefore, you shouldn't count on making
full time income unless you can get very good at the
1. Building a good web site that converts.
2. Search engine optimization. You'll need a
lot of traffic, as maybe 1 out of 200 visitors will
buy your products. SEO can help you get your site
in the search engines so more people will be able to
3. The trial and error of picking the right
merchants and learning the correct ways to promote
Too many people out there assume that affiliate
marketing is actually a get rich quick type of
program. These types of people will throw up a
couple of banners, then wonder why they never make
a single sale or any money at all.
How long you'll need to do it depends on how much
money you are wanting to make. If you are a quick
learner and really good at affiliate marketing, you
may high 2,000 in 2 years. This is based on the
fact that you are starting at 0 and the fact that
you have another full time job, not being able to
devote a lot of time working with your affiliate
If you decide to give it a try, the hardest challenge
will be the first few months. If you check your
stats and see that you are only making a couple of
bucks, you'll find yourself wondering if all the
hard work was worth it. If you get some sales
going and stay committed with your hard work, the
commissions should start growing.
One of the biggest factors with affiliate marketing
is the traffic that goes through your site. Even
though you'll get a lot of traffic passing through
your website, only a fraction of the traffic will
The key here is knowing your visitors and then
being able to determine which affiliate programs
you can offer to meet their needs. There is also
the concept of pre sale, which is the ability
to put your visitors in the required open and
mind set that's required for them to actually click
on what you are selling.
By sticking with affiliate marketing, you'll learn
more and more over the years. You can't expect to
be the best when you first start, it'll take a lot
of hard work and dedication. By putting the time
and effort into your programs, you'll be well on
your way to making it in the very profitable and
exciting world of affiliate marketing.

To lose fat, one must think. One must exercise their brain to change their body and reach their weight loss goals. If you have a plan, you'll succeed. But if you go in the gym and "wing it" everytime, you'll make no progress month-in and month-out. If time keeps on passing without any changes in your body, then you have to try something new.
Everytime I workout, I see the same people doing the exact same exercise routine in the gym. They go through the same machines in the same order using the same weight each day. Then they go to the same piece of cardio equipment and use the same level as yesterday and go at that same slow pace as always.
And do you know what I see the next day?
The same old physique on that same person. No change. Next week? No change. Same workout, same body.
Because they aren't thinking. And no one is thinking for them. They don't have a good trainer, or a good program, or a good idea about what they should be doing in the gym. They've heard that "cardio" is good for them so they go to the gym and try out a cardio machine.
But they just get on it and "go", mindlessly. Maybe they throw in some weights. Maybe not. They don't really know how to do weight correctly anyways. And so it goes on and on, week after week. Until they just give up and quit.
And you see the same thing on the street. You see the same people running the same slow route around the neighborhood, getting the same (read: zero) results from their "same old-same old" jogging routine.
I've always believed that beginners to fitness take up jogging because its easy. And I don't mean easy on the body, because we know it takes some effort.
I mean that jogging is easy on the mind. Runners don't have to think. They don't have to plan a program. They don't have to pick the best, efficient strength training exercises and then put them in the proper order in an effective routine. Instead, all they have to do is put one foot in front of the other.
But, and there is always a but, isn't there? That easy, no-thinking approach is not going to get them very far. After ten days, there probably won't be much change in their body.
And the same goes for those high-rep, low weight, machine circuit programs. No thinking required, no results guaranteed.
However, if they had exercised their brain and designed a strength and interval workout, they would have seen some startling changes in 14 days, or 10 days, or even 7 days. (Heck, I've had guys swear that they noticed changes in their bodies after only 2 days of strength and interval training).
Because you see, planning a workout takes effort. And going through an effective workout of efficient strength exercises and interval training takes even more effort.
But you get out what you put in. That saying goes for just about anything in life, especially for workouts.
So the choice is up to the exercisers in the gym I guess. If they stay in their comfort zone, it will be easier on their body and their mind in the short-term. But over the long-term, they'll probably drop out of the fitness scene as they find they never get the results they want.
Or they can put in the short-term effort, researching the best program for their goals. And with this approach, you get the long-term payoff of success.
Look into strength and interval training and see what the extra mental effort can do for you. Using the Turbulence Training plan of an efficient bodyweight warmup, effective structured strength training supersets, and maximum result interval cardio to complete the workout will get you more fat loss results in less workout time. Guaranteed.

All of us would love to make a little more money. Sometimes just a little to supplement an income can be a huge help. Today it is easier that you think to get a little extra cash in your bank accounts. Most of us today have our own personal websites.

When people go onto your site, if they see an ad that is interesting and click it on you receive what is known as a referral payment. The more clicks the better. Gradually your earnings will increase as your website gets viewed.
You're not likely going to get rich with just your own personal website. However, it is a way to get started. There may come a time when you create another site and you can start turning this into a money making venture as well. You could sign up for an affiliate program and make money through their ads. To do this well you need to think of an appropriate affiliate program that readers of your site would appreciate. For example, if you site is about pets, you may want to look for affiliates that work with pet supplies, pet food or veterinary services. You'll want to have affiliates that will enhance your site. Having ads for rare books or sporting goods on a pet's website isn't going to attract too much attention.

Commission junction has all of the information available on which companies pay which rates of commission. They also have information on how well and timely they make their payments. If a company is a shaky reputation, commission junction will know about it.
If you're looking to make a little more money then it is easy. Why not take the first step and turn you personal website into a way to make cash. Fill up those blank spaces with advertisements and let the money roll in. you can always expand and create different websites. They more ads you can get the better. Affiliate programs are great ways to help you earn money. You can start off small with your own site and then expand into other areas. Eventually, you could build your own affiliate business. Look into affiliate marketing. It could be quite lucrative.

Bad eating habits are a big cause of weight gain. Being as bad eating habits are ingrained in the subconscious, they can be very difficult to reverse. It is possible however to rewire our subconscious minds so that the body can learn healthier eating habits.
We all build habits into our lives to make life easier. Some habits are good, and some are bad. Whether good or bad, all habits are learned behaviours that eventually become ingrained deep in the subconscious.
Here is an example – when you are learning to drive, you have to take a lot of care and be cautious about everything you do. Checking your mirrors, indicating and using your brakes all require conscious thought and attention at first. After you drive more and more though, you no longer need to think about these actions and they become a subconscious habit.
This works the same for eating habits. If you began eating on the sofa regularly when you were younger, your subconscious would have learned that this behaviour is normal. Thus, from then on you would have a strong urge to eat every time you sit on the sofa.
The first step to reversing bad eating habits is to become aware of how habits work, and to identify the bad habits that you possess. When your try to change a habit, you will get a lot of resistance from your subconscious.
Here is an example – imagine if you met a new work colleague and they stretched out their arm to shake your hand. Now imagine that in response you simply looked at them but didn't stretch your hand out in return. That would feel rather strange wouldn't it? This would probably be the first time in your life that you have responded in this way, and therefore something wouldn't feel right.
So, if you have been eating junk food on your sofa for years, and suddenly one night you are sat on your sofa without any food at hand, it would feel rather strange. Your subconscious would be used to you eating when sat watching TV, so would give you the urge to go grab yourself some food
If you are aware of your bad habits, you can use hypnosis to communicate directly with the subconscious mind to let it know that it's OK for you not to eat junk food whilst you watch TV.
Because your bad habits are subconscious behaviour, you need to tackle them on a subconscious level. During hypnosis, the body goes into a deeply relaxed trance state where the subconscious mind becomes very open to suggestions.
It this state, your subconscious can be retrained and encouraged to find healthier and less harmful ways of satisfying your habits. Using hypnosis takes the anxiety and stress out of changing habits as it takes away the resistance you would naturally get from the subconscious mind.
Here is a short summary of what you need to know about changing bad habits:
Hypnosis can help eliminate this resistance.

Here's an experience you're probably familiar with… You have a burning desire to lose weight and you've committed to a new diet, but chocolate bars and potato chips are now the foods you are craving the most, and the craving to eat these foods is stronger than it has ever been.
This is what makes it so hard to commit to a new diet. How can you maintain a healthy eating plan when the temptations to eat fatty foods are so strong?
This is where losing weight can be become such a struggle. With it being so difficult to fight off temptation, it becomes almost impossible to stick to a diet successfully. To add to this, the stress it puts you under makes the dieting idea seem like too much to handle. This makes you want to give up all together.
To conquer cravings successfully, it's good to understand why they exist, and how you can go about eliminating them.
When you start a new diet and eliminate fatty foods, your body will not be used to it. If you've been eating unhealthily for a long time, your body will have gotten used to your eating patterns and will expect them to stay the same.
But it goes deeper than just a bodily craving – these eating patterns are also expected from you at a subconscious level. Your subconscious will have learned that your unhealthy eating patterns are normal, and thus it will resist if you try to make changes.
This is where dieting becomes too much for some people. Something deep within them is giving them such a strong urge to eat all the wrong things.
So, one of the secrets to losing weight successfully is to change your desires. It doesn't matter how good of a diet plan or how much will-power you have, if you can fight off the desire to eat fatty foods, you won't have much chance of being successful.
Imagine if the thought of eating vegetables gave you the same feeling that you currently get from the thought of eating a chocolate bar. Wouldn't that make weight loss a whole lot easier?!
Well, this is the goal of hypnosis. The cravings to eat fatty foods usually have nothing to do with our conscious minds. Even though you know logically that eating fatty foods is a bad idea, you still have a very strong urge to do so.
This is because the craving starts on a subconscious level. By bypassing the conscious mind and communicating directly with the subconscious, hypnosis can help you break the desire to eat unhealthy foods.
By communicating with the subconscious, hypnosis can alter your inner desires. If like many people you have constant thoughts like "giving up fatty foods is hard", it's going to be very difficult to stick to a healthy diet plan. Hypnotic suggestions implant new ideas into your subconscious, such as "you are forgetting about your old eating habits" or "you have a strong urge to eat healthy foods".
After constant repetition, your subconscious will begin to believe these suggestions and this will be reflected in your eating habits and desires.
If you have an internal struggle on the inside and you are constantly filled with doubts, it makes losing weight 100 times harder. Hypnosis can be the key to transforming unhealthy desires into healthy desires and making weight loss a whole lot easier.

I guess you could say it is my mission to show people the
Every month more research comes out to support intense training over slow cardio, and light weights. And each week, in real-life, more and more men and women (yes, women too!) see the benefits of pushing themselves with strength training.
The evidence from research and real-life continues to pile up that you need to put down those light weights and cut out those high reps.
Take really light weights, add in isolation exercises, and repeat
You need to step out of your comfort zone with strength training.
Research has shown using a weight that enables only 8 reps per set results in a greater post-exercise metabolism than using a weight that allows 12 reps per set. And this was in women! So lifting challenging weights is not just for men, but also for the ladies.
Another research study showed that a 30-minute, hard total-body strength training session can boost metabolism about 36 hours. You just don't get that from slow cardio or light, "toning"
But what if you are worried about "bulking up"? Just do one or two sets of 8 reps per exercise, rather than three or four.
Bodybuilders know that high-volume training builds muscle. But if you don't want massive amounts of muscle, just don't do a lot of volume. That's just one of the reasons I don't use bodybuilder
Another way to avoid "bulking up" while still boosting your
As for exercise choice, say goodbye to biceps curls, hamstring
Remember, you don't have a lot of time to workout. So you can't be doing bodybuilding splits from the 80's that call for three
That's just not possible in the real-world. A pushup trains almost all those muscles, and more. It works your abs, chest, triceps, and shoulders. That's the type of exercise that is going to help you get more fat loss results in less workout time.
I train in the concept of a short time frame. That is, anyone that
But training should be fun too, and adding some curls as a reward for completing a hard workout is fine, but only if you want to. You don't need those types of exercises to get results.
But remember, isolation exercises are not actually going to

Now that you have decided to take the plunge and set up a business for yourself, you need to insure that you do all of the right things. Affiliate marketing businesses do take the risk away but you still need to conduct this venture as you would any other business. If it is your sole source of income you'll want to give it your all and make it as successful as possible. In this article, we will look at ways to get your business going and make it successful. By following the advice in this article your affiliate marketing business will get off to a great start and stay that way.
The first golden rule of any business is to identify the demand. With affiliate marketing programs you'll likely be giving a range of products to sell. Check out the demand of these types of things. You should try to stay away from trendy items. They'll sell like mad one minute but you'll be giving them away the next. You want thing that you know people want and need. That way your long term sales objectives will get met.
Next is don't limit yourself to just one product. Try to offer a variety of things. Many affiliate marketing programs offer a selection and it is best to go with these. Basing your business on one product may work in the short term. However, someone will eventually come along with something better or cheaper.
Third, you need to set your business apart from others. You need to establish what makes you and what you offer better from others. What do you offer that sets you apart from other businesses? You should always use tact when talking about your competition. Putting them down or being rude will only backfire on you. Talk up the advantages that you offer and leave it at that.
Forth, you should definitely insure your home business. Everything can be fine one day but life can always take a funny turn. Accidents can happen to anyone. Ask yourself what will happen if one of your products hurts someone. Today, people can be sued for just about anything. Make sure you are insured incase the worst happens.
Fifth, you should always do your best to ensure fast and efficient service to your clients. However, there will come a time when there is a glitch. You need to keep your customers informed and aware of what is happening. Things happen that are beyond your control. Most customers are very forgiving if they are made aware of this. Keeping your customers in the dark could result in loosing them for good.
Finally, keep your customers happy. The happier they are the more likely they are to come back. Offer your customers incentives such as savings on their next purchase. It may cost you more but only in the short term. Keeping your customers happy will result is them referring you to others.
Affiliate marketing businesses are easier in the fact that they minimize risk. Everything else is like any other business. You need to work very hard to keep your customers happy. You need to set yourself apart from others and protect yourself against the worst. By following the advice in this article you will be giving your business the best possible chance for success.

Body: Being an amateur on the website content business, I have always aimed for high quality original articles, making sure that information will be solidly presented in an orderly, detailed manner using words that will cater to the specific searches of internet users. In turn, I have also been in a vast search for software made to tailor my needs. I am pretty certain you too, have the same qualifications as I do. I want, first and foremost, a free article spinner software, or if not, something that will give me best value for my money. It should aid me in establishing original content with ease; it should make me able to reproduce my articles in bulk while still maintaining my unique content. Most of all, the outputs should be as humanly understandable and coherent as possible. Simple requirements these may seem, but most web based article spinner software I have tried come with a certain fee, and even if they are affordable, they do not give the output I have always wanted to achieve.

People who want great looking skin often look for the best creams and lotions they can find to give their skin a vibrant glow. What many don't realise is that they can give their skin this vibrant glow naturally by eating all the right foods.
A healthy eating plan rich in vegetables and healthy foods provides countless benefits to your health and skin. Adopting a healthy diet containing the top 10 foods for skin listed below has even been known to reverse diabetes and skin disease, and reduce the risk of cancer.
Healthy eating is the key to having beautiful young looking skin. Here are the top 10 foods for skin put together by Simon Lovell, media expert and author
The avocado is known for its numerous properties that benefit the skin. It contains many healthy fats that plump up the skin and smooth away the dryness. Avocados have the highest content of vitamin E when compared with other fruits, which is a powerful antioxidant that helps strengthen the white blood cells.
Strawberries, blackberries and blueberries are all good for the skin because of their high antioxidant content. These 3 berries have been found to have the highest antioxidant capacity of any foods. They produce collagen which keeps the skin smooth and plump.
3. Low Fat Yoghurt
Low fat yoghurt is rich in one of the most important components of skin health – Vitamin A. Experts have stated that the health of skin cells is largely dependant on how much Vitamin A is present in our diets.
Broccoli is a vegetable that contains an abundance of health benefits, and is good for the skin. Broccoli is high in Vitamin A and thus promotes good turnover of skin cells. Eating broccoli can help to renew skin cells quickly making your skin look fresher.
Whole-grains are rich in the mineral Selenium, which is why they promote healthy skin. Selenium has been shown to reduce skin damage after prolonged exposure to the sun. High levels of selenium in your system prevents your skin from oxidative damage that can increase cancer risks.
Rich in vitamins B, C and E, spinach possesses strong anti-aging properties and helps to give the skin a healthy glow. Also, the iodine contained in spinach is said to combat skin disease.
7. Omega-3 Fish
Omega-3 is one of the healthy fats that are highly sought after by the health-conscious. Omega-3 fatty acids are good for strengthening the skin cell membranes and preventing toxins from being absorbed.
8. Non-Starchy Vegetables
The health benefits of a diet based mainly on non-starchy vegetables are endless. In fact, a UK study has shown that adopting a diet consisting of only liquid diet drinks and non-starchy vegetables has been shown to reverse diabetes and cure the condition in just 3 months. Because they are non-starchy, they do not affect blood glucose.
Common non-starchy vegetables include carrots, broccoli, sprouts, celery, asparagus, cucumber, tomatoes, onions, peppers, lettuce, beets and watercress.
9. Green Tea
The health properties of green tea are vast. The list of skin benefits that green tea provides goes on and on. Green tea, whether consumed as a drink or applied to the skin, can decrease risk of damage from the sun and thus lessen the risk of skin cancer.

Today I wanted to try and explain exactly what it takes to build muscle without going into too complicated of details.
I find that there are so many people and authors out there today that over complicate this topic to simply lure you into buying their latest program or their newest supplement.
Now of course, I have my own muscle building program and I would recommend some supplements to you as well but I am not saying that it is wrong. Today I simply want to give you good information that will hopefully clear up any confusion about what it takes to build muscle in its essence.
I am going to keep this nice and simple and base it on personal experience because in the end I believe your own personal experiences are the best way to measure any kind of results. You cannot simply rely on 'studies' or 'university tests' as most of these tests are either biased or they are based on genetically gifted individuals.
What do you need to do to build muscle?
Well let's think about this question for a moment.
First, understand that your body is more than content with staying EXACTLY the way it is right now. It would rather not change and it is programmed to be this way after thousands of years of evolution. This means that to make any change in our bodies composition, we are going to have to 'coax' it or persuade it in doing so.
So for today's purpose, building muscle, how do we persuade our bodies to do this?
Well we have to give it a 'reason' to grow!
There are many ways to do this but I am going to break it down into some manageable chunks.
One of the keys to gaining muscle and weight is to consume more calories. The reason we want to give our bodies more calories is because if we are going to demand more out of them than what they are accustomed to, then we need to feed them with more fuel.
Think of it as if you want to travel further in a car. If one tank of gas gets you so far but you want to go further, you need to have more gas right? It's the same for building muscle. Feed it more so you have more energy to push it into spurting new muscle.
Now without going into excruciating details (which is not the point of this particular article), you cannot simply overfeed on junk food. Make sure you are eating lean proteins, complex carbohydrates and healthy fats.
Now that you are eating enough to give your body 'extra energy' you will need to stress the muscles so that they respond by getting bigger.
Your muscles are currently the size they are based on the level of activity you have done in the past, your genetics and your strength.
We cannot change your genetics, but we can however change your strength to a degree as well as elicit hypertrophy (muscle building) by weight training.
To put it simply, you need to start progressively overloading your body with some form of resistance training.
Honestly, do not get too concerned about finding that 'Special' program that will be better than all the other programs out there. There are just too many training programs to try and choose 'the best' one.
In my experience, they all work! Yes of course some may be better than others but in the end you will get results no matter which program you try as long as you follow the key rules to muscle building. Rely on the foundation and principles instead of the program. In doing so, you will get results no matter which program you are on.
What are the foundation and principles?
Progressive Overload, Adapt, Proper Form, Mindset, Rest and Recovery.
Pretty simple right?
The main thing is to continue stressing the muscles by either overloading with volume training, getting stronger by strength training and making sure to give your body enough time to rest and recover and therefore GROW!
This is not to say that you can just keep getting stronger to the point that you will be performing 1000lb bench presses, but by cycling your training through different stages, you will start to get closer to what your genetic potential for muscle mass really is.
Eventually the gains will get harder to come by, but if you are just starting out, this will not be an issue.
Accepting the Inevitable:
By applying the right factors for muscle building, you will start to gain lean mass and you will start to gain weight which is good because that is the goal we are after.
However, you need to also accept that when you are gaining muscle that it is almost impossible not to gain a bit of fat while doing so.
Now I know there are going to be lots of people claiming that it can be done but in my experience these are people who are genetically gifted and they are the exception to the rule.
Other people who tell you this may be people trying to sell you something.
Finally, you can gain eliminate fat gain by gaining muscle at a slower rate.
It is your choice, but for those of you who want to build some serious muscle as quickly and effectively as possible, then you will just have to accept a bit of fat gain.
What is a 'bit'?
Well for the most part, for every 4lbs of muscle or lean mass you build, you will probably accumulate about 1-2lbs of fat with this. Of course this is if you are doing everything right and eating relatively clean.
Now you might be saying 'I don't want to gain fat!'.
Just realize that the muscle you build during the course of your muscle building phase will be on your body permanently provided you continue training and eating right.
What you want to do is go on a muscle building phase for about 6 months or so or longer (it is up to you) then you want to go on a fat burning phase for a couple of months to burn off the accumulated fat and keep the muscle!
See how that works?
This is just the way it is and I have experienced this myself and it is not as bad as it sounds. Most people do this continually and they consistently add 5-10lbs of muscle each time they do this until they start to reach their maximum genetic potential.
The good thing about doing this is you also get better each time you go through these phases and you start to optimize your gains and improve on your muscle to fat gain ratios.
Just accept a bit of fat when gaining muscle and don't stress over it. It happens to all of us and you will certainly be more grateful for the muscle after it is all said and done.
Those are 3 simple areas of muscle building that should help you understand it a bit better.
I hope it is simplified enough and it doesn't make you over-think which is in my opinion the one thing people do too much of (including myself sometimes).
Keep it simple and always go back to the basics.
In knowing about these 3 things, it should put your mind at ease and let you focus on training, eating and enjoying the journey.
Here for you,

As discussed in part one, teen bodybuilding can start at a very young age allowing young fitness enthusiasts a whole new world to pursue. Teen bodybuilding is an excellent way to promote a healthy lifestyle since it requires regular weight training, cardiovascular training, balanced nutrition and even stimulation of the mind since the topic of teen bodybuilding involves constant education. Teen bodybuilding can also help you erase nicknames like "Skinny Mini," "Scrawny," "Tooth Pick," "Twiggy," and in my own personal case, "Skinny Vinny!"
Unfortunately teen bodybuilding is not as easy as it looks and can result in injury, bad habits and frustration if stated with out structure and progression. Here are the next five tips to successful teen bodybuilding:
6. Learn Proper Technique First
I hope you are humble enough to swallow your pride and accept the fact that your first step should be getting professional coaching from a reputable fitness trainer. I know many of your friends will not even consider this and you will be told, 'just learn it yourself,' or 'watch others.' Can you imagine a medical surgeon or dentist who took this approach? Yikes!
Think about it. You are going to be lifting weights the rest of your life. Is spending a few hundred or even a few thousand dollars, on a professional fitness trainer, not going to pay you back over and over (for the rest of your life) if you do things correctly right from the start? Definitely! If you start lifting weights incorrectly, get ready to spend the money you saved on a coach for a rehab therapists next vacation! If you don't get injured now, most likely it will be in the next few years.
7. Stretch Just As Much As You Lift
If you are serious about getting into the world of teen bodybuilding, I encourage you to start this habit early. Most text books teach stretching methods that include 20-30 seconds per stretch. Don't even waste your time if this is your idea of stretching. From real world, in the trenches, experience, I would suggest stretching at least the same amount of time that you lift. That means, for every 1 hour of weight training you perform, you must balance the effect of weight training with one hour of stretching. Therefore, if you weight train 4 hours in the week, you better be stretching for at least 4 hours in the week. If you are really lazy, start stretching for at least half the amount of time that you lift. After you see the benefits of increased strength, quicker recovery and less injuries I am sure you will have no problem bumping up your stretching sessions to the recommend 1:1 ratio.
Fail to stretch at least the same amount that you lift is almost a sure fire way of shortening a teen bodybuilding career or lifestyle. Remember, weight training shortens and tightens the connective tissue you train. Stretching counters the effect and ensures your muscles have room to grow!
8. Focus On Bodyweight Strength First
What's the point of a sloppy 150 pound lat pulldown if you can't do 10 bodyweight pull ups? What's the point of a 185 pound bench press with microscopic range reps, if you can push up your body a couple dozen times? What's the point of a 500 pound leg press if you can do a set of one legged squats down to the floor? Believe me, after a few months of conditioning your body to body weight training, you will be blown away by how quickly your weights climb when you introduce loading.
9. Keep Your Workouts Under 1 Hour
Your goal should be in fact to complete your workout faster and faster. This will force your muscles to condition and adapt to a greater work load. The more work you expose your muscles too, in a shorter amount of time will improve your muscle density. Your bodies ability to tolerate greater workloads.
10. Develop Full Range Of Motion
Initially, teen bodybuilding should involve building strong muscular attachments, tendons, ligaments and bones – text books refer this as anatomical adaptation. Look at building your muscles as the finishing touches on a solid house. You would not want to start framing the house until the foundation has been built. Strengthening your tendons, ligaments and bones would be considered building a strong foundation to build from.
What is the best way to begin a strong foundation for a house to stand on? Build from the bottom up or in our case, from the inside out. This means developing a full range of motion with each weight training exercise to ensure all the muscle fiber gets activated and all the supporting tissues are fully involved.
Think about it. Partial movements will only develop partial muscle. Full movements will develop full muscle. What would get you better results? Squatting 135 pounds with your butt to the floor or squatting 225 pounds for about ¼ of the way? That's correct, involving the entire range of motion with a lighter weight will involve more musculature, improve your mind-muscle connection quicker and strengthen all the supporting tissues more rapidly. Initially, as a teen bodybuilder, you should never sacrifice range for load.

3) Interval Training

Teen bodybuilding is growing at an alarming rate, as enthusiastic teens hit the gym every night of the week. I don't blame them. Teen bodybuilding is one of the most effective ways to boost a skinny guys self-confidence and self-image. Did I also mention lots of attention and admiration from the ladies and respect from the guys. Teen bodybuilding does not just help out with vanity but promotes a nutritious diet, disciplined lifestyle, and strong work ethic.
So the question is, how is teen bodybuilding done right? Should teen bodybuilders read the latest bodybuilding magazines? Learn from their friends or a professional? Train every day or every other day? Rely on supplements? Start when they are done growing or earlier? Focus on endurance training heavy lifting? Teen bodybuilding has dozens of questions and many different opinions on each. Here is my top 10 tips to successful teen bodybuilding in no particular order:
A full body workout? But all my friends are training chest tonight. And tomorrow they are training back. And on Wednesday they are training arms. But if you have the courage, you are not going to follow the herd and trust me. You are too young to be splitting up your muscles groups into only one body part a day. Unless you are pursuing a career in competitive bodybuilding, one-body part splits are an excellent way to over train at a young age. Look at it this way. Do you only eat once per week? Do you only take supplements once per week? Do you only sleep once per week? Do you only study once per week? Than why would you train your muscle groups only once per week? It does not make sense. Full body workouts will allow you to hit all your major muscle groups three times in the week, without overtraining, instead of only one time.
4. Emphasize Your Conditioning
Teen bodybuilding can actually become something that appear to be a lazy man's sport. Next time you walk into the weight room, count how many people are actually doing something. Seriously, I guarantee you will see more people standing around and talking, adjusting weights and staring in the mirror. Not many people are actually hustling from one exercise to another or even sweating. That's another reason to avoid one body-part bodybuilding style workouts. They don't emphasize your fitness or cardiovascular system. Your weight training program should be incorporating more than just weights. Balance out your sessions with some skipping, stair climbing, hard running, supersets, and really short rest periods. If you don't feel like you are going to throw up at the end of your weight training sessions, I have to question your workout intensity.
5. Stick to Basic Supplements

For beginners, getting into fitness can be intimidating and confusing. But it doesn't have to be that way. In fact, getting fit is one of the most straightforward tasks you'll attempt in the New Year. Fortunately, reaching your fitness goals requires only two things; discipline (that's up to you) and a set of simple guidelines (which I'm happy to provide).
