IS BODYBUILDING HEALTHY

If you are wondering how bodybuilding is a healthy habit to practice take a look at this article by Luxrilife.

It’s hard to ignore bodybuilders when they walk down the street or in any room. This type of athletes literally spend hours and days to sculpt their bodies and muscles. Although they are keen to maintain a perfect diet, how does this intensive sport affect their health?

The Pros

The intensive heavy lifting that bodybuilders submit their bodies to is very beneficial for their muscles as it makes them stronger and leaner especially over the longer term. As bodybuilders lift weight during their younger years, they are building a sort of infrastructure inside their bodies. Thus, when they reach the age that causes mass & strength loss, they are capable more than others to live independently and maintain a better quality of life throughout their older years.

One of the most important benefits of bodybuilding is the sport’s effect on their bones. Bodybuilders tend to have bones that are much dense and much stronger than the average person’s. Thus, this heavy lifting sport can prevent osteoporosis and even limit fractures & breaks!

Healthy bodybuilding can be also beneficial for the bodybuilder’s psychological health as it boosts self-confidence through the roof! A bodybuilder is always confident when walking into a room and glancing over the dozen of eyes contemplating him.

The Cons

Unfortunately, bodybuilding affects the person’s overall health when not practiced to the extreme. Risks can be fatal such as the tear of the aorta but in moderate practices this type of training is usually good for the heart and lung health overall.

When paired with the wrong type of diet, bodybuilding can also affect the overall health negatively. Bodybuilders must fill up on 5000 calories AT LEAST in order to maintain a balanced lifestyle. Now it doesn’t have to be an unhealthy diet, but they can always treat themselves to what we like to call “cheat meals”. However, some athletes follow strict healthy diets while gorging on protein powders while leaving out other important vitamins and nutrients.

Some athletes may even develop muscle dysmorphia in their efforts to become leaner and bigger. This psychological disturbance can push them to develop extreme behaviors such as spending excessive hours at the gym, compulsively consuming steroids and surrendering to unhealthy eating habits.
