Is Bodybuilding or Fitness…Madness?

Madness prevails in the end
Madness prevails in the end

If I give you a big YES as an opening statement… would it be worth to travel all the way down and finish with the read? The answer to that would be another ‘Yes’. This write-up is much more than a mere yes or no to the title, but more about showing as of why people pursue this madness and reach a level rarely imaginable by commoners.

It’s about the MindGame

When we talk about bodybuilding or weight training the first image in the mind of any average individual would be some big-ass freak walking the planet with 24 inches guns. Well, for those of you, who somehow glide in this category, let me tell you that there is a thick line of difference between a professional bodybuilder and a fitness enthusiast.

One cannot expect a regular gym freak to be as huge as Kai Greene due to the difference in the intensity of the training as well as the diet that the predator actually abides by. Being a professional bodybuilder not only means supplementation but also a discipline involved that one has to follow like a monk. Yes, fitness for many is madness and to some is a religion that actually assists you in perfecting yourself.

To me fitness was all about regaining that was lost in my childhood…my ‘Prestige’. I still remember the days when in a typical Indian environment I was bullied just because of my skin color. Those days were mixed with feelings of hatred and anger; somehow fitness was a respite in channeling that anger in appositive way. I still remember the first day I picked up iron and the madness that prevailed after each repetition with that weight. This is the madness that drives you throughout the workout with a motive to perfect yourself in each and every sense.

If you were looking for something or a workout plan or a diet detail then let me tell you that this blog has to do with preparing yourself mentally. Not everyone can have a gifted forearm like Phil heath due to the genetics factor that comes into foreplay in the end. However, fitness is much more than just genetics because it is the very last repetition before failure that actually triggers your muscles to grow and being mentally prepared is all about training to the level of failure. Look around and compare yourselves with others, ask yourself ‘what would have happened if everyone in this world could build a million dollar body Just like that?’ *Doomsday* because nobody would realize the value of this hard-work and nobody would actually know what madness means.

Yes…Bodybuilding/Fitness like art will always be madness….

Maintaining a good state of physical and mental health is nothing like a rocket science. In fact, it is just about making simple and natural changes in your current lifestyle and these changes can make you think, feel, look better with more energy throughout the day. You can avoid common diseases like diabetics and cancer if you have a hygienic lifestyle well supported by good healthy standard of living.

To start with, one can make changes to the eating plan and switch to a diet that is low in calorie and high in Nutrition. Introducing broiled fish, chicken and low fat dairy products can help a lot in reducing fat content from the diet and adding colorful fruits, vegetables without any sauces or cream can provide you with vital nutrients and antioxidants that can slow down your aging process.

However, having a good diet does not mean you can stay active and healthy. Start a regular exercise plan that is not intense or high tech but simple to follow. If you are little over-weight then it is better to start slow with cardio- vascular exercises starting with brisk walking or a simple walk around the block. If you walk on a regular basis for around 2 hours with a speed of 3 mph then you can reduce the chances of heart diseases. 

In the above context, the importance of proper diet and exercise was explained but to lead a complete healthy life one should keep a check on other habits such as smoking and drinking.
