I have a provoking doubt though,that is,the body structure/shape we will build or develop in the future,will it depend upon what workout type/split/routine/cycle and diet we follow today as a beginner,precisely. [/quote]
It’s hard to follow what you’re saying, but I think you’re talking about a beginner building a foundation and how that relates to their long term goal.
If that’s what you mean, then I’d say yes and no. It’s obviously important to follow a “good” program when you’re new to training. A lot of beginners waste time and energy by doing poorly-designed routines or not eating right. And that wasted time and energy is wasted “newbie gains” that are pretty much once in a lifetime. So a good program from Day One is the best approach.
But there are lots of “good” programs that will build a base of strength and size. Once you have that foundation in place and you have a better idea of what you’re capable of and where you want to go, you can take the next step towards your goal.
For example, if a 17-year old who’s 6 feet tall and 155 pounds says his long-term goal is to be a competitive bodybuilder, it wouldn’t be a bad idea for him to do Starting Strength as a beginner. In his condition, it doesn’t matter that Starting Strength doesn’t have exercises for biceps, calves, or side delts. After 3 or 4 months of following the program and eating right, he should end up overall bigger, stronger, and ready to move to a more complete program.[/quote]
Thanks Chris,your answer was very helpful.
Sorry if the post was hard to follow,my doubt pretty much relate to the foundation workout.
I hope the image attached will help to understand my doubt more clearly.I have choosen the chest muscle for the example.
Apparently,the chest muscle developed are different from each other in dimensions.
Like the second one appears to be more triangular in shape,while the fourth one has more like a neat square shape unlike the last one which is a bit streched down and outwards.
Though all of them look muscular.
Basically,these people might have followed different workout routine/program when they were new to bodybuilding . Likewise the same idea applies to other body parts/muscle group too.
Whether the shape a person develops depend upon genetics,individual’s bodyframe,muscle’s tendency to adapt irrespective of what workout he followed as a beginner or one can transform from second to fourth ,vice-versa and so on…
Please help me interpret my doubt more elaborate if is miss something out ,so others can benefit from itand for future references.
