Bodybuilding is life changing. It has many benefits, not only for our muscles but for our mind as well. I’ll try to describe the most important advantages to convince anybody who is not sure whether or not to start weight training.
1. Better looking body.
That’s the most obvious reason. By regular weight training we can build bigger muscles, burn fat and develop nicer body. When we look better, we feel better. We can impress others with our musculature or attract opposite sex.
Our everyday life is much easier when we are stronger. We are not getting as tired at work and we can lift heavier objects without a problem. We are harder do defeat in a fight.
3. Increased production of anabolic hormones.
It has been proven that compound exercises like Squat, Deadlift, Bench Press, etc. increase the production of Testosterone and HGH – hormones that transform us from a boy to the man, make us bigger, stronger and more confident.
3. Harder bones and tendons.
Lifting heavier weights (over 70% of our maximum) make our bones and tendons harder and stronger. That’s why we are less likely to develop an injury or have any fractures than any other mortal man.
4. Better posture.
We can spot so many people this days with a round back, lordosis, scoliosis or any different posture problems or muscle imbalances. By regular and proper training, specially our core and back muscles, we can avoid them or fix any disproportion. When our back is straight we appear taller and more attractive.
Bodybuilding, as well as any other sort of sport, stimulate our body to produce endorphins – hormones which basically make us feel better, happier and reduce the pain. So it’s a really good option for anybody who is stressed out, suffer from depression or has any other mood swings to start working out.
Weight training undoubtedly has great benefits. It makes us more muscular – generally better looking. We are definitely more confident, stronger, healthier and happier. Our problems appear to be not as big as before, daily life is much easier. We are more likely to be accepted by other people and we find it easier to speak to them. We’re not afraid as much to walk alone in the dark streets or defend ourselves when we need to. Our muscles attract women and makes other men respect us. Basically we are more successful in life.
If you haven’t started training yet you should. Find a gym that’s not far away from your home, get familiar with training principles and food, pick a workout and don’t wait any longer. Life is too short to be small.
