Myths and Misleadings in body building

Elvis Elvis

Funny isn’t it, how body building truth is so hard to come by. It’s ironic that…

The supplement companies are the ones who are showing you how to get big, with their “editorial reports” in all the fitness and muscle mags (really, just big ADS that hype up their product).

That the typical training and tips that most professional body builders and competitors advocate is *NOT* what works best for the novice lifter or hard-gainer.

How nobody really tells you *exactly* what supplements many competitors take when competing in non-tested shows – (Could it be because some of them are illegal?).

And that’s just a start. Obviously it’s not only the scandalous issues that we’re dealing with here. On top of this all, as body builders we must overcome the myths and criticism thrown at us by society, just because we don’t fit into the “box” of what is “normal”.

Having below average body fat is a bad thing…

Eating high protein diets hurt your digestive system…

Myths and Misleadings in body building

Creatine damages your liver…

Body builders are dumb, muscle-bound meat heads…

You need constant training with weights, all week, to get ripped…

Fat in your food makes you get fatter…

There are many misconceptions out there regarding body building truth and what body builders do as a lifestyle. Some have good meaning behind them. Others are due to ignorance and lack of understanding with regards to physical fitness and training. Either way, the more you know about what you do, and why you do it, the better off you’ll be. Not only in terms of body building, but in life as a whole.

In fact, I think this “body building truth” is so important, I’ll repeat it again:

“…the more you know about what you do, and why you do it, the better off you’ll be…”

Think about that the next time you perform a rep in the gym and see where it’ll take you.

Remember, winners aren’t afraid to work hard to achieve results. (And you wouldn’t be here unless you’re already a winner, would you?)
