Power of Being Patient
It doesn`t matter if you are trying to gain muscle
or lose fat, you must have the ability to be patient.
In today`s world, everything is moving at such
a fast pace and being patient is not something
a person wants to do. In the sport of bodybuilding,
everything you do requires patience of some sort.
You can`t become satisfied with just one day of
hard work, achieving the body of your dreams takes
a lifetime.Most bodybuilders have a strong work
ethic. They train hard for years but end up quitting
because they feel their bodies can`t take the
stress that weight training puts one through.
It`s the same with workout programs such as H.I.T.
The trainee will lift with all out intensity
but give up training after a few weeks because
they`re not seeing the results they want. Don`t
get me wrong, H.I.T. is a great workout, but not
one that should be used for more than a couple
of weeks.To much is worse than to little. Injury
and overtraining are the most common problems
of giving to much effort.
You see it all the time,
a trainee tries lifting more weight that he can
handle or tries to perform dangerous exercises
without the help from a spotter. You also have
the ones who go on an extreme diet for months
preparing for a contest. They become disappointed
at their placing and vow to never step foot on
a bodybuilding stage again.
This all could`ve been avoided if the person
was patient.Think of reaching your goals as if
it were a marathon or an MLB pennant race. Sure
you can go all out in the the beginning, but once
you quit using the same intensity you will fall
into a worse finish then what you would`ve if
you set yourself at a pace that is manageable.
You cannot develop a true bodybuilder`s physique
with only a few months of training.
It takes years
of hard work and consistency to build a body an
admirable body.Being patient is crucial in the
sport of bodybuilding. Have you set yourself at
a pace that you feel comfortable or are you spending
every waking minute trying to look like Arnold?
Sure, you need to have the goals you set for yourself
in mind, but you also need to do other things
I see it all time, bodybuilders refrain from
going out with friends or having a good time with
the opposite sex because of the fear of not being
around their food.
