Have you ever seen a bodybuilder collapse on stage?
Here is exactly what happens when you deprive yourself of water, and necessary nutrition for a bodybuilding competition. All it takes is a couple of really hard slaps in the face to get brought back to life. Funny thing is, this guy actually came back to competing and ended up being a very successful pro.
Even though bodybuilding has saved countless of guys from suicide and helped the lives of many people it can also be bad for you. For most people bodybuilding is a great way to add value to their life but for some people bodybuilding can become a nightmare.
What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger, correct? In theory, yes, but every hit leaves a scar too. Bodybuilders often train heavy in an attempt to satisfy the modern requirement to be hardcore all the time. Similar ego training can cause multiple injuries.
For instance, people like Branch Warren have become notorious for their poor training form. The idea behind Branch Warren’s style of lifting is simple – if the bar ain’t bending, you are just pretending. If you put your ego aside just for a little bit, you can avoid a lot of pain.
And while lifting can produce a decent amount of torture, it’s rarely the primary source of health issues. The drugs are.
