Today we need to look at some of those lies that are peddled all over the world and all over the internet about bodybuilding, the lies that some of us have painstakingly had to believe in, and the lies which will go on to interfere with the progress that you want to make in your life as a bodybuilder. Take note that some of these lies are so commonplace you might even have heard about them, and most importantly, some of us even believe them and follow through with them to the latter.
Most people believe that you can become so big a bodybuilder without using steroids. The judgement call here is that the process will only take longer to yield results. Kid yourself not, irrespective of what you have read online, in magazines and anywhere else, professional bodybuilders will always use steroids and some growth enhancing drugs to get the body size that they are working so hard to achieve. If you cannot learn how to manipulate your hormones, there is nothing that you can expect to achieve in as far as getting so big is concerned. However, this does not mean that you should give up on your dream to get it all done naturally.
Super high calorie diets are necessary for you to big. This much is true, but only to some extent. In as much as you will want to do this, it is important for you to understand that if you really want to become big enough and get that lean tissue you will need to avoid this type of meal. If you have a very good metabolic rate that will allow you to burn off the fat so fast, then this is a good alternative. However, if this is not the case, your body will not be able to burn off the calories as fast as you hope, and instead they will be deposited as fat in your body. So much for eating to become a bodybuilder!
Eating a low fat diet will not see you gain fat irrespective of the number of calories that you eat. Funny how many people fall for that one? It is common sense that if you eat more than your natural energy requirements, you will become fatter. Whether you are eating a little more than your body needs per day or if you just go on the rampage, take note that any other calories that the body cannot burn will just be deposited as fat in the body and this will hamper any gains that you may have made so far.
The biggest lie of them all is that the more you work out the more you will grow. This is as big a lie as you can ever come across. If you are working out and you want to grow bigger, you must make sure that you are doing quality workouts. You have to make sure that you supplement that with some really good nutrition so that you can get the results you want.
