How important is cardio when bodybuilding? I am motivated in lifting weights but not so when it comes to cardio.
Also I have been working out for 8 months now but for the first 5 or so i was working nearly every body part 5 times a week. Since then I have concentrated on 1 -2 bodyparts a day. I have muscles which show through when tensed and are quite big too but they don't seem to show when not tensed how long does it take to become ripped?
I don't really take much care in diet since my mum buys all the food and cooks it although i do eat well.
my workout does something like this
day 1 - shoulders abs
day 2 - biceps abs
day 3 - chest triceps and legs (chest mainly hit)
I don't have a bench at home but i would like to know a few effective tri cep exercises using free weights since in my house I can really hit it hard without feeling embarassed. This way I can give tri ceps thier own day since i really think they need improving.
If i do cardio on my days off will affect the recovery of my body or will it be alright since i have a cardio machine in my house i can use.
I change my workout a lot but i think my latest one will work the most it involves a mixture of:
2 excercises: high sets - low reps - heavy weight
2 excercises: low sets - high reps - light weight
on each body part
do u think this is good enough?
