What Are The Top 5 Positive Things About Bodybuilding? part 3
Increased Metabolic Rate:
Ever wondered why you perspire that much more easily or get hungry that much faster? Well, this is due to the increased metabolic rate of your body. The above 2 points may make an increased metabolism unwelcome. Nobody wants to be going around hunting for food every 2-3 hours or perspire after every flight of stairs right? Think again.
How does burning more calories while sleeping sound? Not convinced? Ok, how about losing more fat while basically doing nothing sound? Betcha' it sounds good alright! An increased metabolism basically increases the energy expenditure of the body. The body burns more calories at rest compared to if you do not work out at all. This, together with sensible eating, promotes long term fat-loss for a leaner physique over time!
4. Decreased Joint Pain & Injuries:
Can't bench press without feeling a sharp pain through your shoulders? Problems deadlifting without feeling a dagger through your back? Injuries and lack of a range of motion in joints are some of the most common reasons why people avoid weight lifting or stop working out.
This however, is a wrong concept as weightlifting with specific exercises and recovery techniques can help strengthen the problem area and improve the flexibility of muscles surrounding the area. This decreases the pain felt in the joint/muscle, significantly. Let me list a few ways how proper exercise helps:
• Increases nutrient flow to the joint and area surrounding it.
• Strengthens stability of muscles surrounding the joint, thus reducing the direct impact on the joint.
• May lead to fat/weight loss that may in turn place less stress on the joint.
• Increase bone mass/density.
• 5. Self Confidence & The Ability To Attract The Opposite Sex:
• Guys, ever thought those Baywatch babes looked awesome in red? Or gals, ever drooled over Brad Pitt or David Beckham's buff torso? Having a lean, muscular body dramatically increases one's sex appeal, physically and mentally.
• Weightlifting plays a huge part in shaping ones body to a leaner, meaner physique. Having lean, toned body and a nice v-taper makes several more heads turn during a walk down the beach during summer break. Knowing you look good makes you feel good, and this dramatically boosts your confidence. You feel more at ease when you're approaching or get approached by the opposite sex. You feel it's easier to chat up someone of the opposite sex and = to make friends! Don't believe me? Try it!

Hello guys. I haven't written in a while but i'm back:) with the second part on my top 5 positive things about bodybuilding.
Hope you enjoyed the first part and you found it interesting as well as i know you'll like the following.
2. Being Noticed & Looked Up To As A Role-Model:
People with lean, athletic physiques turn heads. Big and fairly muscular people stop a lot of people in their tracks. Big, muscular and lean people are just a sight to behold. Having the opportunity to 'parade' the end product of years of hard work and healthy lifestyle habits invites a lot of encouraging comments.
People are often amazed by the amount of dedication and determination it takes to reach that kind of muscular physique. This puts weight-lifters in good stead to act as role models for youngsters, and other groups of people out there.
An example would be giving a talk to young obese people who are still learning the ropes of healthy eating and to help give them a slight nudge in living a healthier lifestyle and improving their body composition. A simpler, more common seen example would be that of having a nice, casual talk to anyone about the benefits of healthy eating and participation in some form of weight lifting activity.
Your body is a testimonial to what wonders one can achieve through that. The ability to help and inspire people provides huge satisfaction and this contribution to the society would go a long way in the lives of those people you manage to touch and inspire to help 'spark' a willingness in them to make a change in their life.
Have a nice day!
What Are The Top 5 Positive Things About Bodybuilding?
Bodybuilding has become beneficial to so many people. We all have our reasons as to why we workout; health, strength, physique, sports, are just a few.
1. Improved Health:
Who would've thought trying to look good or get stronger would come with such a host of health benefits? Following a good diet, supplementation regime and increased activity are just some of the reasons why the majority of bodybuilders are healthier than the average person.
Those who have been working out for some time now know the simple fact that in order to put on lean muscle mass, nutrition, for a large part, has to be pin-point. With that, it means getting enough calories through wholesome, natural food sources.
They know that neither an additional 'big mac' nor another large pepperoni pizza would be the one that packs on the beef on your body; food choices like lean red/white meat, green leafy vegetables, fresh fruits and whole grains, just to name a few, are the key players here!
Good habits like making wise food choices, weighing out exact portions of how much one would like to eat and de-skinning any visible fat/skin of meat, helps one to prepare and consume healthier meals that the body will be grateful for.
Supplements, though not absolutely necessary in a well-rounded diet, fill out any holes in the diet that may have been left uncovered solely by consuming whole foods. Supplements like multi-vitamins/minerals, vitamin C and calcium tablets 'round-off' an otherwise excellent diet.
These supplements help in ensuring that the body is not deficient in any of the minerals/vitamins.
Exercising frequently, twice/thrice a week on average, improves one's health dramatically. Walking to and from work/gym and following a weight-lifting regime definitely beats traveling everywhere in the car, couch-potatoING and slacking the day away doing stuff that require as little effort as possible.
Weightlifting has a host of benefits that includes increased bone mass/density, increased muscular endurance, improved cardiovascular health and increased metabolism rate. All in all, weightlifting together with a healthy diet has been shown to reduce the probability of stroke, diabetes, heart attacks and osteoporosis among several others.
My first blog entry
Hello guys.This is my first post and i want to speak here about Jay Cutler,my favorite bodybilder.Cutler worked in his brother's concrete construction business, Cutler Bros. Concrete, from the age of 11. He began training when he was 18 years old as a senior at Wachusett Regional High School. He graduated from Quinsigamond Community College in 1993 with a degree in criminal justice, intending to work as a Corrections Officer for a maximum security prison. He was inspired to enter bodybuilding after meeting personal trainer Marcos Rodriguez. Cutler excelled in bodybuilding, desiring to be one of the largest competitors ever and took his first overall win in 1993 at the Iron Bodies Invitational. His first contest was the 1992 Gold's Gym Worcester Bodybuilding Championships, at which he took second place. He won consecutive Arnold Classic titles in 2002, 2003, and 2004, and placed second to Ronnie Coleman in the Mr. Olympia competition four times before claiming the title in 2006.
In 2001, at the Mr. Olympia he tested positive for banned diuretics, but sued and had his second-place finish reinstated.
Cutler won the Olympia for a second consecutive year in 2007. Jay Cutler became the third Mr. Olympia in history (along with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Franco Columbu) to win the title in non-consecutive years, and, defeating the reigning champion Dexter Jackson in 2009, became the only Mr. Olympia in history to reclaim the title after having competed as title-holder and not won. In 2010, he won his fourth Mr. Olympia title, defeating Phil Heath. In 2011, Cutler was runner-up to Heath at the Mr. Olympia. In 2012, Cutler was unable to compete at the Mr. Olympia due to a biceps injury. Cutler competed in the 2013 Olympia and placed 6th.Cutler has since focused on his business venture, Cutler Nutrition, which specializes in bodybuilding nutritional supplements. Cutler Nutrition is a joint venture with BPI (please see above).Who is your favorite bodybilder guys?Tell me.bye for now
