Are you new to bodybuilding Good for you, you obviously are trying to get yourself in shape. It's likely that you're spending hours in the gym doing intense weight lifting. If you're not, then it's probably true that you're not going to get the results you want and you'll need to step up. However, there is one caution you're going to have to take note of. That is, you've got to avoid overtraining.
Overtraining occurs when you work too hard, so that you're not giving your body the rest and recuperation it needs between weightlifting sessions so that you can repair and beheld the muscle you're breaking down.
To understand overtraining, you first have to understand that when you are "building" muscle, you're actually breaking muscle down. You're not building the muscle in the gym, really. Instead, what you're doing is breaking down muscle in the gym and producing tiny injuries in the muscle that then must heal and repair. When these injuries heal and repair, they heal and repair stronger than they were previously. Therefore, when you're building muscle, you're actually breaking down muscle first, and then letting your body rest and repair in between; this process is what actually "builds" muscle.
