Here is a fact-sheet that defines some of the bodybuilding principles that you may come across when reading some fitness-related content. You can save or print this image in order to have the definitions nearby. The principles that I have defined are important for understanding some of the instructions and concepts mentioned in strength training programs and literature.
I hope that by understanding these principles, you can start to see how a fitness education can be of value in understanding how to make progress at the gym. The five principles that I have chosen to define are simple yet important to understand when trying to make sense of the information relating to training, maintenance and building muscle mass. The language used in fitness-related content is not always defined so I have created this in efforts to simplify some confusion. Hope it helps.
