These tips go alongside our top 8 workout tips and likewise can work in your home workouts, view this article to optimise your home workout.

Remember, being active is our best tip, simply doing some HIIT or low intensity cardio can be a great start.

Here’s a list of our top 5 best misc tips for you, so you don’t have to scroll down and read it all.

Top 5 Misc Bodybuilding Tips:

  1. Eat Enough Protein

  2. Train For Your Desired Goal

  3. Use Resistance Techniques

  4. Try Different Exercises

  5. Motivate Yourself

So let’s begin at our number one misc tip below.


Number One Tip: Eat Enough Protein

You have probably heard this one time and time again.

Eat enough protein.

And why should I eat enough protein, you ask.

Well firstly, proteins are the building blocks of muscle, and most bodily tissues for that fact.

Therefore, more protein must equal more muscle, right?

Well yes, sort of anyway, increased protein consumption increases muscle protein synthesis.

Infact, there are a lot of benefits with increased protein consumption.

Protein consumption contributes to growth & development, metabolism, body composition, RNA/DNA synthesis and many other processes within the body.

Overall, according to my analysis of many sources and studies, we have come to the conclusion that 1.6 grams per kilogram of body weight is an optimal amount of protein. (Source)

You can read much more about protein in this article.


Number Two Tip: Train For Your Desired Goal

As I have explained in this article on myofibrillar vs sarcoplasmic hypertrophy, the muscle can adapt to various different styles of training. (Source)

So what does this mean?

As I said in that article, it means you should adapt and change your training based on your desired goal.

We have much more information in that article, but basically, if you want to train for hypertrophy you must train like a bodybuilder.

If you want to train for strength, you must train like a strongman or power lifter.

And, if you want to train for endurance, you must train like an endurance athlete.

Each of these styles of training have their own specific and unique properties, such as rep ranges, eccentric and time under tension, resistance techniques, rest time and many other variables.

Training for your desired goal is a great way to optimise your training.

Number Three Tip: Use Resistance Techniques

This misc tip is another great one, it is the usage of resistance techniques, also known as intensity techniques or intensity methods.

In fact, we included this misc bodybuilding tip in our top 8 workout tips article.

An example of an intensity method would be using barbell chains while bench pressing, or using resistance bands in conjunction with exercises.

Resistance techniques are mostly used to change the dynamics of a rep.

This means that at the top of the rep the weight is lesser, at the middle it is heaviest and at the bottom is again lesser.

A resistance band for example will increase the weight (resistance) the higher you go in a rep, changing the dynamics of a rep.

Therefore, this is a great tip to improve your workouts and their effectiveness. (Source)

Using intensity techniques, also called resistance techniques or methods is another way to optimise your training.

Number Four Tip: Try Different Exercises

This misc tip ties in with the previous two tips, this is to try different exercises.

Instead of sticking with a set number and type of exercise, change it up every few weeks and workouts.

This can help you stimulate new and different muscle fibres in different ways, allowing you to adapt to new exercises, however this doesn't promote any or much increase in muscle hypertrophy compared to not varying exercises.

However it will increase motivation. (Source)

We have an ever growing exercise database on this website.

For example, instead of using the barbell press in a chest workout, use the dumbbell press for a few weeks then swap back.

different exercises
Using different exercises and mixing them up is a good way to add variation to your workouts and improve their effectiveness.

Number Five Tip: Motivate Yourself

This misc tip is a simple one, to just motivate yourself.

These tips will only help if you want to improve yourself.

Therefore, motivating yourself is one of the most important tips in our opinion.

If you want to be a bodybuilder, think about what you want to achieve and how far you will go to get it.

Again, if you want to be a strength athlete or an endurance athlete or anything for that matter, try your hardest to achieve that.

Also, listening to music or training with a partner may help you become more motivated!

Motivation can even improve sports performance. (Source)

training with others
Training with others may help you become more motivated and achieve your goals.
