What Is Body Building | Body Building Symmetry
Bodybuilding is the use of progressive resistance exercise to control and
develop one's musculature. An individual who engages in this activity
is referred to as a bodybuilder.
BodyBuilder is a person who strengthens and enlarges the muscles of their body through strenuous exercise.
To properly develop physique as a whole, to ensure optimal symmetry and proportion, must train all muscle groups with equal intensity; those that can be seen and those that are seemingly hidden beneath other muscles.
In bodybuilding terms, good symmetry represents a perfect balance of muscle mass between both sides of the body, while proportion denotes how well developed each of our muscle groups are, front to back and side to side.
Muscle symmetry is determined by how each side of our body is shaped by comparison to its opposite. Muscular proportion signifies the shape of our individual muscle groups and how these groupings fit together to enhance physical balance. Together this results in great balance.
Bodybuilders prepare for competition through a combination of dehydration, fat loss, oils, and tanning (or tanning lotions) which make their muscular definition more distinct. Well-known bodybuilders include Charles Atlas, Steve Reeves, Reg Park, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno.
For bodybuilding success our muscles must look impressive from all angles; deep inner back thickness and impressive spinal erectors must not be neglected in favor of the more showy lats. Likewise, the chest must not be bottom-heavy, but display complete development of the side, inner, outer, upper and lower areas. The tibialis anterior, serratus, soleus and other often-overlooked areas are to be targeted as often as the larger and more noticeable shoulders, arms and chest.
