Once you set your goal, you are ready to work incredibly hard to reach it. Being a bodybuilder and understanding how much time, patience, and will you need to get to the top, you may forget that you are only a human.
Professional training and dieting is not a thing that makes you healthier. Even experienced bodybuilders with the support of a professional team of coaches and sports therapists are in risk to destroy their health or to get a serious trauma.
These days more and more young enthusiasts are afraid to try their chances in the professional sport due to fears of getting sick or developing a serious disease. Nick Trigili who is always ready to share his expert opinion about the sport, says there’s no reason to be scared. However, the sportsman and sports guru recommends bodybuilders to be extremely attentive to their health.
Nick believes that the wrong understanding of what the sport is and an incorrect concept about bodybuilding are things that push people to the edge where their health is in danger. Nick has shared some of the principles that work for the sportsman himself and will probably help other people to avoid unpleasant consequences of professional training:
1. That’s a marathon, not a sprint!
We all want to get to the top faster. However, you shall first take into consideration your current health condition before even trying to work extremely hard. Take care about your blood pressure, pay attention to your pains and weaknesses. There’s no better way to lose than to decide you are ready to exercise more than your doctor allows.
2. The sport means much but not everything!
You may have an idea that you can win only in the case if bodybuilding takes all of your time and plays the main role in your life. Unfortunately, those sportsmen who often think this way are in a great risk of getting traumas or developing professional diseases. Bodybuilding is important, however, if it’s the only thing that makes you interested, you shall seriously think about changing your attitude.
3. Not forever young!
Most bodybuilders are young men. They come to the sport having great health and a great amount of energy. That can be a nice point to start, however, there’s something else missing. What is really important is to understand that using all your power and health potential right now is not the best strategy. It could be useful to think for a while, questioning yourself whether you are able to stay the same healthy in 20 more years if you continue the same way.
4. Lack of education!
People rarely accept sport as a niche that requires learning and getting a lot of information. What could be useful for any young sportsman is a short educative course that could explain how bodybuilding affects one’s health. Before making your muscles work, make your brains work for a while.
Nick Trigili believes that his duty is to educate younger bodybuilders, enthusiasts, and beginners on how to avoid risks and make their training more effective. He also advises other experienced bodybuilders to do the same.
