1.You can’t be big and shredded as a natural bodybuilder.
As a natural bodybuilder, you are limited. You cannot have the mass and conditioning of guys like Kali Muscle by just “eating and training right”. It’s not going to happen no matter what kind of routine you follow. It’s all a scam.
2.Supplements are a joke.
Supplements are not magic. They are just a way to monetize the bodybuilding game. Unless your mouth is injured and you can’t eat solid food, there’s no need for supplements. Not even creatine and protein.
3.Squats and deadlifts are no magic.
Squats and deadlifts represent two of the greatest exercises in the world. However, they have shortcomings too and quite often strength trainers attribute magic qualities to them. Not the case. Squats and deadlifts are just exercises – not magic.
4.There is a lot of disinformation.
Many bodybuilders suffer from paralysis by analysis due to the incredible amount of contradicting information. This is counterproductive. It’s easy to get lost in the sea of disinformation.
The products in the fitness world are usually advertised by bodybuilders on steroids. For example, the articles on T-Nation are written by people who look somewhat normal, but there are photos of steroid users surrounding the information. This ”furniture” misleads the unaware lifters into believing that they can achieve the physiques in the photos by following the discussed programs and taking the presented supplements. This is a complete lie and guys like Christian Thibaudeau know it perfectly well.
As a result, many recreational bodybuilders develop unrealistic expectations and feel depressed and sad when their goal physique turns out to be just a pipe dream. It hurts, doesn’t it?
6.Lifting weights is a narcissistic activity.
Admit it already – you lift weights because you want others to admire you! You want others to say: “Hey, bro! Sick arms. Flex for me.”
Bulking just sucks. Period. You get fat in the hope to build more muscle. Past a certain point, every gram of nutrition is stored as fat and doesn’t help muscle construction.
8.Bodybuilding could be really boring.
Lifting weights gets very repetitive, and when the results slow down, the burden increases even further. This could also be a good thing… a way to test your “faith”.
9. Most bodybuilders are stupid
Sorry, but the majority of the meat heads are brain limited and haven’t read more than 5 books in their lives. All they think about is money, sex, and muscle. The fitness world is full of superficial and fake personages such as Dana Linn Bailey. Just go to any bodybuilding expo and observe the amount mediocre spiritual level of most people there.
10. You can’t quit
You think you can quit lifting? Good luck. I’ve tried many times. On one occasion, I stopped lifting for 18 months. I simply didn’t have the desire to do a push-up. I thought I was done, but eventually, the fire restarted. As they say – there is no such thing as a former training addict. Natty or not, you can’t quit. At least not forever.
