Bodybuilding is perhaps one of the best forms of exert.
It is an anaerobic form of workout in which the focus is to build muscle. Larger, stronger muscles have many benefits, the main one being you are simply making your own shell stronger so that you can function at a higher level, perform tasks easier and more effectively, and provide your body with better protection as you become older. Accidents happen, and those with muscle can better protect bones and tendons from increased damage, while performing difficult task at a more functionally strong level. Muscle building has also been shown to improve bone strength as well as burn fat from the body more efficiently.
Bodybuilding has always had a darker side as well. From drug use to the obsessive nature of the activity. Many want to excel at their own highest level and will push the pace to get there anyway possible.
1. The Perfect Body.
Typically a body which is both muscular and ripped is what most bodybuilders go for. Gaining large muscular size while developing and maintaining rent abs requires a instead exact combination of proper diet and proper training in order to maximize growth while minimizing fat gain. Its a tricky equation and it is easy to see why certain shortcuts are so alluring to take.
2. Eat to Grow.
Dean Wharmby was someone who had his routine down. He knew if you wanted to grow you needed to put in the time is not merely at the gym, but at the dinner table. Many bodybuilders believe the mantra that diet is 80% of success and that you have to eat to grow. This means performing a bulking up period. Dean would follow a 10,000 calorie a day diet. While some bodybuilders eat clean which means only eating lean, healthy foods while the objective is bulking, many other bodybuilders find that route too difficult and instead resort to high protein and high calorie foods which will have them reach their daily caloric uptake goal more easily and cost efficiently. Dean ran this road and consume hamburgers, pizza, eggs, along with some leaner selections of chicken and fish, while ingesting protein shakes for that extra protein intake. He would also consume energy beverages to fuel his workouts and maintain his energy levels which were challenged by the high calories he was devouring every two hours throughout the day.
3. Significance of Protein. Why do bodybuilders religiously feed or drink protein every 2-3 hours like clockwork? Protein is what constructs the muscles grow. During weight train muscles get worked intensely. They break down during workouts, then during the recovery period they rebuild. This is where they rebuild to larger size. During this recovery period, it is critical to feed the muscles protein so they will properly rebuild and get larger and stronger. You can develop like service animals in the gym, but if you dont feed your body protein afterwards during recovery, your growth will be poor.
4. Results of Deans Diet.
Unfortunately Dean had fallen ill five years ago. A growth was discovered, but rather than undergo traditional routes of chemo, he tried natural alternatives and the growth did end up disappearing. But thats when Dean then seemed to pick up with where he left off as far as his bodybuilding and bulking diets ran. Then in November 2014 he was diagnosed with liver cancer, and again he preferred natural alternatives rather than chemo, but he also set a halting to consuming red meat and sugars. But changing the dangerous diet at this stage proved to be too late as Dean passed away at the age of 39.
5. The Energy Drink Factor.
Dean believed that his consumption of energy drinkings could have played a big factor in his poor health. Energy beverages are typically high caffeine, high sugar beverages. Studies have shown that cancer cells readily metabolized fructose to increase proliferation, so in other words sugar actually feeds the cancer cells while aiding in cell division to speed up the spread and growth of cancer.
6. The Red Meat Factor.
Beef, pork and other red meat are said to contain Neu5Gc which is a sugar molecule causing rednes leading to the growth of cancerous tissues. Red meat contains the highest levels of this sugar molecule. Bodybuilding has always attracted a high protein lifestyle due to the necessary nature of build the most muscle possible through protein uptake. While red meat is a go-to source for protein, many bodybuilders opt instead for lean chicken and healthy fish as their main sources of protein due to the potential harmful effects of a diet high in red meats.
