Are you frustrated with the lack of growth you’re experiencing? Then
FACT ONE the reason bodybuilders don’t grow is because they don’t
know what state there body is in to start with.
FACT TWO they don’t know how to change the state they are in to
induce growth. . Guess what? If you do not train properly you will
never stimulate you muscles to grow. Improper training is one of the
biggest reasons why most people never get the desired results form
FACT THREE they do not know what route to take to get there (build
muscles). Most bodybuilders have no real system that changes as
there body gets used to the training stress they are currently
handling. They walk in the gym pick random exercises and rep ranges
put there time in and come home. Where is the science in that?
FACT FOUR (which occurs primarily with
steroid users who artificially build there muscles) is they can’t
keep the muscles they built with drugs because they don’t know how
to train or eat in the first place. Once they stop taking drugs
there muscles disappear leaving them skinny, fat and in a worse
state then if they had never used drugs.
FACT FIVE they do not regularly monitor biofeedback to determine
when to change their training to continue growing. If you are not
keeping record of your training there is no way you are maximizing
your gains. Journal keeping allows you to track your process over
years enabling you to fine tune your training and keep the gains
FACT SIX they select exercises that work only work their strengths.
Seldom or rarely do they work on their weaknesses and create a truly
outstanding balanced physique.
FACT SEVEN Bodybuilders get sucked into bogus well marketed
supplements and glitzy magazine adds to look for quick fixes instead
of implementing a systemized, training and nutrition.
FACT EIGHT they do not generate enough intensity in the gym to force
the body to grow. Intensity is a very misunderstood term in
bodybuilding and most individuals are kidding themselves into
believing they are training intensely enough to really grow.
FACT NINE they do not invest in professional specific coaching to
help them achieve their best results. Consider this what athlete in
the world got to the top of his game without coaching. I will tell
you absolutely none! Many bodybuilders erroneously think that they
can maximize muscle growth with out coaching. Guess what they are
FACT TEN they let their EGO get in the way of learning the correct
and most efficient way of training. They do not listen to or follow
sound science or consider what other people have to say. They spend
their time shooting down authorities in the sport or spouting off
about their own hair brained training routine. Great athletes are
life long learners. They check their ego at the door and are always
looking for ways to improve, integrate and apply new training
I could go on about this for the whole book but you get the idea.
Analyze your own thoughts and training and see if there is anything
holing you back. Then eliminate your weaknesses and move forward on
the path to greatness. By constant and honest self analysis you can
be sure to achieve greatness in any field.
Unfortunately, drug usage has become rampant in sport and society
itself. This is the current state of bodybuilding today. Many
athletes get frustrated with their progress and start using drugs.
Current bodybuilding practices are so devoid of a scientific system
in training that it has led to widespread and insane drug use. This
abuse of drugs in turn has destroyed more physiques and made the
current crop of bodybuilders look more like cartoon freaks and
leftovers from the Frankenstein labs.
Not only have current bodybuilders lost the respect of society,
bodybuilding has become the laughing stock of the sport world. The
primary reason for this is that bodybuilders have lost respect for
themselves and their bodies.
True bodybuilding is about right training, nutritious eating, a
positive mental outlook, and a deep respect for yourself and others.
At Freaky Big Naturally we practice and teach these ideals.
The bottom line is…
If you don’t know how to build muscles without drugs you can never
keep the muscles you build with drugs. Drugs are kind of like
traveling internationally without a passport. You may get to your
destination but you won’t be able to stay there and sooner or late
you will be deported back to where you came from.
