I started lifting when i was a freshman in high school. many of my friends were seniors that always spent time in the weight room after school. They took me under their wing and taught me what they knew. It was great for me because i was always involved in extra curricular activities. So body building was only going to improve my performance. Once i started, I became immediately hooked.
Why I Love it
I've been doing Martial Arts for years now. And I'm sure everyone knows that it takes a lot of discipline focus and consistency. Discipline to push even when it feels you cannot. Focus, on your goals the task at hand. Consistency to create the habit and results.
The same with body building. I love the correlation it has to my current profession. It takes discpline to wake up every morning at 5 to do cardio, even when your mind says no. It takes focus when pushing heavy weight and your body is feeling fatigued. And it takes consistency with your training to achieve the ideal body that you desire. That is why i love it.
