If anyone ever told you that being a bodybuilder would be easy, they lied to you. This is the toughest life challenge that you will come across yet, and if you do not have the guts for it, rest assured that you will be a long way from what you really want to be. One thing that a lot of the young bodybuilders or the beginners never take seriously in as much as they should is the fact that you must be ready to become a monster to succeed. Before someone goes on to become that successful bodybuilder that you know, they have to go through so much till the moment they are gracing magazines and signing endorsements. Successful bodybuilders do not just come out of the gym; they are made, crafted long before they even get to step into that gym. The gym only perfects the physique so that the monster in them has a likeable human form. The monster inside a bodybuilder never has time for ego, no time for slacking or rudeness. To him these will only be successful in causing defeat.

If you are the kind of person who is really keen on building some muscle or making your muscles bigger, this is the perfect place for you to be. So who really is a monster, and what is the difference between the monster and anyone else who makes their way to the gym? There are a lot of people who shy away from the hard work that it takes to become a star in the gym. One thing that really gets to me is that every other day I see people who come to the gym, people who come in to imitate the superstars, the monsters. However it is quite unfortunate that they do not have the guts, they do not have what it takes to make it, and most importantly, they do not have the nerve to handle the pain that it takes to build successful monsters at the gym.

There is a very big difference between the successful bodybuilders and those who only want to grow some bully muscle. I have spent so much tine in this industry, and I can tell you for sure that I have been lucky enough to see people come and go, successful individuals come out of the gym while others take their one shot at fame and realize it’s too much than they can handle, and disappear faster than they made it to the gym. I have seen lots of people with potential come to the gym perform near miracles and wow everyone, but they eventually lose the plot and disappear from the gym, with it their chance of progress. I have also seen people who were once regarded as nobody come to the gym; stay focussed and conquer the world. That I can say is the difference between the monsters and the imitators is that the monsters face their challenges head-on and they never stop at anything. When it gets tough they get tougher, and that’s the code that they live by.

So, are you the monster you say you are?
