Hey, Im getting ready for my second show and I just have a few questions for "Knowledgeable/Experienced" Bodybuilders. I have a good base and know a bit about weight lifting/nutrition/etc but admit I have much to learn as I get older.
I was reading somewhere on the Supersite to "Never Ever to work your obliques by holding dumbells/cables, and bending over( Standing holding a dumbell, bending over sideways) because doing this builds muscle, thus making your waist bigger which is NOT what you want for bodybuilding (Ruin X shape).... Any Truth to this? and If so how can you (Or Shoudl you even) hit your obliques to not enlarge this section of your body?
Should you be so concerned about counting macronutritients and etc (Carbs, Pros, Fats, Sodium, Calories), or just eat a healthy clean diet, low in carbs and put in your work (Cardio, weights) and let your body do the work. I think counting and worrying about (C,P,S,C,S) is just added stress and doesnt even matter if your eating a clean diet. For my last show I didnt count any, but I find myself so worried right now that I am thinking I should, but think its just stressing me out.
And last one, Eccentrics? Would that be a good way to help shed some fat off, or would it just wear down my muscles for my daily workout. I believe its more for severely over weight people?
