Starting out as a beginner is without a doubt the most important time of your bodybuilding career whether you ever want to eventually compete or not. The reason is simple because you want to make sure that you do not develop any bad habits so be careful to always watch your form or technique.
Probably the best advice you can get is DO NOT imitate routines of advanced bodybuilders. Combined with performance nutrition, smart and hard training and sufficient rest you will gain faster when you start out than any other time in your training.
You should train three times a week and only do 2 to 3 sets per exercise when you start for the first time. You should rest up to two minutes between sets as you start to get stronger. There are many different workouts that you could start with but listed below is one that you should think about when just starting out.
There is not no doubt that you will quickly get stronger and will be able to increase the weight with each work-out but you should start off with light weights when you first star out and be very aware that you will gain strength quickly.
The most important thing to watch is your form and it is strongly advised that you get some advice it you are training at a gym. It is easy to do as there will be plenty of people including an instructor to make sure that you are doing each exercise correctly.
After your first week or two you could increase your workouts by doing another set of each exercise as you add more weight. You should note that your form and the way you do the exercise is more important than the weight that you are lifting.
