When I first started out, I just wanted to train to look good. The more I lifted the more I enjoyed the actual Physical aspect and challenge. Even today, although I have competitive goals, the training and the challenge of pushing myself are what attract me to bodybuilding the most!
I’m going to throw this in there now so we are all on the same level, squatting, leg pressing, deadlifting, rowing, pressing, dipping style exercises are great movements that will put the most amount of stress on your body. These movements are what your workout plan should be based around for an increase in strength, mass, and testosterone.
WE ALL are gifted with the ability to break boundaries- both mentally and physically. We can achieve whatever we believe, our thoughts become things, we manifest ideas and visions when focusing so strongly on them - but obviously within the laws of physics and our genetic limitations. Even then, I am still not totally convinced, I honestly believe that anything is POSSIBLE, anything!
What I have seen more than ever is that most people see a pipe dream when it comes to their goals, they want to look like that guy or that girl, they want the end result but they don't want to do what it takes to get there or maybe it’s that they don't understand what it takes. "Everybody wants to go to heaven but no one is willing to die"!
We have reached another weekend, it has been a productive week as always moving forward towards my goals but like always, I am here wondering where has the time gone, the time I will never get back. Sometimes the thought on the theory that this is one life, one shot, one chance to make a difference to the world or at least leave your imprint for others to follow, can be as daunting as it can be motivating to either hop, skip or stroll through each waking day.
The skeletal muscle makes up for 65% of the body’s total protein in the average human being. When training for hypertrophy, breaking down muscle to create adaption, the demand will be higher. Protein is a material that makes up for every tissue cell in the body, not just the muscle but also the skin, hair, nails, eyes, bones, tendons, ligaments, organs, veins, nerves, antibodies, hormones, neurotransmitters, cell membranes receptors, etc. So you can understand how important this molecule composed of amino acids is, VERY!
Growing up I was horse mad and that’s about as far as it got. I hated team sports tbh as my patience levels are not the highest! I didn’t like having to rely on other people either. I have always enjoyed doing things on my own. I did some competitive running prior to starting body-building which I enjoyed as that was my me time.
