There are two ways to do body building: the right and the wrong way. The wrong way is comparing yourself to other people’s results and trying to get there as quick as you can. The right way is working out calmly, in your own pace while striving for the long run.
When working out the wrong way, many will try to get quick and instant results. They fail to realize that they are not doing anything wrong and that they should just stay with it long enough to actually see time working to their favor, not against them.
Many people will go to the gym and pour in much more weight than they can healthily handle. This might end up causing their bodies some serious damage that they might not be aware of.
Now, don’t get me wrong, but I believe that is actually a good thing if someone gets hurt pretty early on their career. Unfortunately, this is the best way to make the person realize that body building is indeed dangerous and they should pay attention to when working out.
Even though you might get the perfect body quite early on your life, you must be aware that you will live for many years. You definitely do not want to spend the rest of your life struggling with muscle spasms just because you’ve tried to get quick results when you were young.
This is by far one of the most neglected facts that people seems to turn a blind eye to.
Do not wait until you get hurt to fully realize that body building is a dangerous sport. If you wait for something to happen, then maybe sever muscle spasms and other dreadful pains might be coming to you. You really do not want that.
When just starting out, or even if you are already an experienced and advanced body builder, then ask yourself what is more important: health or beauty? I have no problem choosing the former in a blink of an eye. Sometimes this might not seem like an easy choice since you want results. But try to strive for the long run and you will probably be better off.
