Secrets To Develop Killer Motivation For Bodybuilding
How can you develop killer motivation of pro bodybuilders? Bodybuilding is great exercise but like anything worth doing in life it is anything but easy. Needless to say, not everyone can be successful at bodybuilding as genetics and motivation are the top two factors which not everyone has enough of for this sport.
It’s not enough to have naturally large muscle cells to succeed in bodybuilding. You need to develop killer motivation and willpower to sustain the effort.
Without these two elements, you’re not going reach your goals in any element. I’ve seen many promising bodybuilders eventually quit because they could no longer find satisfaction or meaning in what they did. Most set too lofty of goals or lacked to develop killer motivation.
When a budding bodybuilder with lots of potential quits weightlifting for good, we feel it’s a loss for the bodybuilding world in general. Why? Because not a lot of people go into bodybuilding in the first place.
So if you need to develop killer motivation or if you need a reason to sustain your active bodybuilding, here are some gems worth remembering:
Bodybuilding is Healthy
We live in an increasingly sedentary world. Technology today is fun but is teaching people that staying indoors is more fun than going outside for exercise.
This has resulted in the tripling or sometimes even quadrupling of certain diseases in different parts of the world.
The medical establishment has long prescribed regular exercise and physical activity to combat illness.
Metabolic syndrome, which is the precursor of high cholesterol, elevated blood glucose levels, and high blood pressure, can be remedied through regular exercise.
How about just medication for blood pressure, etc.?
Yes, there are medications for certain diseases. But in the majority of cases, the main cause of these common degenerative diseases is a person’s lifestyle.
Heart disease has been on the rise since the late seventies. Weight lifting and resistance training, in general, has been proven to be very beneficial to individuals who need to strengthen their cardiovascular system.
Resistance training doesn’t just keep your heart rate up – it also opens up blood vessels and encourages the development of more arteries and veins in your body.
Bodybuilding Instills Discipline
If you find it amazing that some bodybuilders have 25-inch biceps, you would be even more amazed at the level of discipline these bodybuilders have, just to build their biceps up to that size.
Bodybuilding instills extreme physical and mental discipline. This discipline usually extends to every aspect of a bodybuilder’s life from the way he takes care of his family to how he approaches his day job.
As long as you focus on bodybuilding itself and the tremendous effort needed to get ideal results, you’re going to develop the steely discipline of professional bodybuilders – and you’re going to love how it changes your view of life, too!
Bodybuilding Makes You Competitive
Professional bodybuilders are known for being very quiet and low-key about their training regimens. This humility doesn’t mean they’re “pushovers.” Despite the general humility of many pro bodybuilders, the majority of them are extremely competitive and they live and breathe the sport, day in and day out.
Again, this essential change in a bodybuilder’s mindset can be beneficial to anyone. Being competitive is a good thing! It keeps you on your toes and teaches you never to rest on your laurels. Competitiveness also makes it possible for people to step out of their comfort zones more easily.
Competitiveness also helps develop positive thinking.
Esteemed bodybuilders have all experienced defeat one way or another. Did they let defeat stop them? The majority never stopped trying!
When you’re capable of hitting the irons repeatedly and sacrificing your time and energy for high standards, you become more resistant to quitting.
Real bodybuilders don’t quit – they just get better with time.
Of course, there will always be champions who came before us but that doesn’t mean that the newer generation doesn’t have a claim.
Don’t think for a minute that you won’t have a place in bodybuilding. Your place has already been sealed the moment you committed to this sport! So don’t lose hope if you already have… Own those irons!
