Bodybuilding Psychology

Bodybuilding is an excellent sport, both enhancing your physical appearance and mental positiveness. The is no doubt that your attitude and confidence can increase expedentially.

With this being said, be careful. Bodybuilding can often lead to psycological problems, know as dysmorphia, also known as bigorexia. Bodybuilding is a sport where you are constantly being judged by your physical appearance. This could possible be psychology damaging. Don’t worry so much about it, don’t let it get to you. We all have beautiful bodies. So, overall it is a sport that you can keep your body in shape, keep you very healthy and often give you a young appearance and an anti-aging effort.

Don’t become obsessed with the body obsession and think that no achievement becomes good enough. Can you imagine what it is like to never be truly satisfied with how you look, and being obsessed by it? Make sure this does not happen. Don’t worry how you look so much as how you feel. Looks are in the “eye of the beholder”. Make sure you have other outside interests.

Eating well is so important and helps all of your bodily functions look and stay healthy. Cut down on too much fat and carbohydrates. Eat a well balance diet, try more fish and vegetables. Cut out most white foods and white breads, they are complex carbohydrates and harder to digest and more fattening. Read the contents of the products you purchase and buy low fat products. If you eat ice cream, think 5 times about it, see how much weight you would loose if you stopped eating it altogether and ate a fruit instead.

Read a book, watch some interesting TV program and relax your body. Overall, you want to be a well-rounded human being – from a physical standpoint, as well as from a mental standpoint.

Best of luck and let us know if you have any additional comments.
