General, and basic info on Bodybuilding

General, and basic information you should know when venturing into the fitness, weight training, or bodybuilding world!
The information written here is for people who are new to weight lifting, bodybuilding, or for people who just want to get into shape, and transform their physique. The information below will give you the basic information you need on how to start, and how to achieve your goals.
Get your diet in place. Your Diet, and food intake is very very important. You have to eat healthy foods, which will help you get gains, and not kill you, and clog your arteries. If you are serious about bulking up, and are a body builder, you need between 2500-5000cal a day, depending on your weight. An example might be, if you weigh between 100-140lbs, you would need 2,000-2,800 calories. If you weigh between 150-200lbs, you would need 3,550-4,500 calories a day to bulk up, and gain weight.
Next you need to get a lot of sleep. Try to shoot for 7-10 hrs if possible. You don't think your muscles grow when you lift do you? No, they grow when you are sleeping, and during non-training days. I can't stress enough sleep, and also make sure you give each group of muscles at least 24 hrs to recover, if not 48. If you have a good routine, one or two muscle groups will be worked 3-4 days a week, for 30 minutes to 1 hour, and you won't have to work them again until the next week. One more important note: don't train 7 days a week. It puts too much stress on you muscles, and it doesn't give them any time to grow, and repair themselves.
Using Supplements while you weight train. Everybody needs to understand that supplements are exactly that. They aren't magic pills; they supplement your every day nutrition, and HELP you achieve gains. This information is just general information, and basic stuff. It gets much more complicated then this depending on what your goals are, but this will get you pointed in the right direction.
