4. Don't Overtrain
Don't train too long or too often. Keep it intense and try to "work the muscle", rather than "lift the weights!" Get a pump and feel your muscles doing the work.
5. Post-Workout Nutrition
Consume Whey protein within half an hour of finishing your training. Have another shake before going to sleep and one upon awakening. This
ensures that you are getting quality protein at the most crucial times in
your bodybuilding day!
Drink lots and lots of water. The majority of your body is made up of
water, drink at least 2 quarts per day. Do this and you will get a lot bigger!

motivated in the first place and persistent, you will get the body you want.
