Most people desire a trim body forgetting that a sculpted body is even more desirable and attractive than a trim or slender one. Weight training routines can keep you healthy and fit, as well as add greater aesthetic quality to your body.
Just what do we mean by a sculpted body? Well, it has nothing to do with Michelangelo's great works of art, though it comes close. Not everybody has the genetic make-up to attain that type of near-perfect proportions. But you can improve and be the best you can be. And that is what body sculpting is about; building that body to the best of its ability.
The first thing you need to do is set time aside - at least three times a week - to dedicate for curving your masterpiece. This time should be at least one hour, not counting time spent in traveling to and from the gym but not more than two hours. If you will be working out at home, make sure there will be no distractions during this time.
Depending on what level you are at in weight training, you may need to hire a certified personal trainer to show you the proper techniques of lifting weights. Alternatively, you can purchase books and videos and/or seek the help of an experienced friend or relative.
Most women shudder at thought of building muscle, believing it will make them look masculine. No, it won't. You can build "feminine muscles" and look not just like a woman but a very attractive curvaceous woman.
Why do you need to build muscle to sculpt your body? Can't you simply lose fat and still look sculpted? Well, to look sculpted you will have to build foundation. You can lose fat and not have six pack abs, for instance. But if you build up your abs and then lose fat, you will have six pack abs.
For the ladies who don't want to "bulk up", your weight training routines should consist of higher reps.
Men, who want typically want to bulk up as well as sculpt, can do lower reps with heavier weights. Doing the two simultaneously, bulking and sculpting, is not the easiest thing. The best way is to first lay the foundation by first bulking up, and then go on a sculpting or "cutting" phase once you have built up muscle.
