Lifting heavy and bodybuilding

The construct here is gaining strength and size – not gaining definition and cuts – and this impacts on the way you need to be training. To construct size essentially you want to be lifting as heavy a mass as you can, and doing it for just a few repetitions – rather than doing lots of repetitions of a light-bulb weight. Build sure you always go past the point of failure by At the same time you're aiming to keep mixing it up by trying different things, and to really hit each muscle group with lots of exercises to awaken development. This means using a "split routine" that focuses on a different body part each day. You should also try to comprise compound movements into your workout. These are the movements that don't isolate a singular muscle group, but rather power you to job all of them in unison. The 'big three' compound movements are "bench press", "dead lift" and 'squat' – so try and include these in your routine.

What is Bodybuilding?
In general terms it is one of the simplest things we can define for its true definition is in the name itself; bodybuilding is simply the pursuit of building the body. While this is rather a simplistic view, although correct on the surface there must be more to it to give it a specific purpose in-terms of competition. In this case, in its true form to define bodybuilding is to build a physique that is modified beyond its original state, one that is enhanced in muscularity and definition. The extent one takes this modification and enhancement will largely be dictated by their desired end goal but under its competitive aspects the most highly developed and defined wins and if steroids can help you reach this end goal and they will, it shouldn’t be too hard to see why they are so heavily used. 

"Is bodybuilding a sport" it is a question that has been asked many times and because steroids are such a major part many emphatically state “no.” However, this logic is riddled with holes for if steroid use or the lack there of deems a competition a sport then no sports would exist at all. The other argument and it is the sounder one, is that since there is no athletic competition on stage it is in-fact not a sport; but is this a truly correct assumption?

Bodybuilding is unique from most other forms of competition, while sports such as baseball and football take place on a field, the sport of bodybuilding takes place in the gym; the stage is more or less a point of display where rewards and accolades are handed out, much like the locker room is for a winning baseball team. Granted, there is the posing aspect of competition that does take some athletic ability; if you’ve never posed you’d be surprised how difficult of an endeavor this is to undertake. However, the posing, while important is not nearly as important as the physique in-terms of how it exist, therefore we can again point towards the gym as where the competition really is.
