What we put in our body is what we become. This statement holds true due to the fact that our primary health relies on proper nutrition, and what we eat is what our body absorbs for energy to perform specific everyday functions. We also take medicine for our illnesses, but it doesn’t mean that these medicines only cure and not bring any adverse side-effects to our body. In fact, one would be surprised to learn that no matter how miniscule the amount of toxin or waste in our body, it will all eventually add up and lead to organ damage that would be detrimental to your health. This is the reason why natural bodybuilding is preferred by those who want to add bulk to their lean frames.

Like in most bodybuilding regimens, starting your training with right and proper techniques is usually a wise path to take to achieve the desired results in an expected amount of time. One cannot expect to gain unbelievable amounts of muscle if your body fat index is above average, or let’s say well above the ideal amount of 10% body fat. The trick in natural bodybuilding is to start with the recommended body fat index and bulk your way up thru the program. Most experts agree that to start below a 10% body fat index is ideal for natural bodybuilding, and that the common misconception is that you can eat what you want to add more muscle the natural way. It is not even true for conventional bodybuilding methods.

A lot of bodybuilding enthusiasts have claimed they built their herculean physique using natural bodybuilding, but closer inspection would reveal otherwise as these people still use performance enhancing supplements to achieve rapid muscle growth. The use of anabolic steroids has proven effective in building muscle but the side effects could be daunting and would bring serious risks to one’s general health. That’s the reason one has to consider natural bodybuilding as the best way to build muscle and improve one’s physique.
It is a known fact that testosterone plays a vital part to build muscle in natural bodybuilding. Some even take testosterone supplements to intensify the workout but too much of this hormone could bring adverse side effects such as acne, nausea, memory loss, male pattern baldness and muscle twitching to name a few, but a proper diet would ensure the right amount of testosterone produced by the body, leading to a more gratifying workout.

Pain is always part of a successful natural bodybuilding workout but does it necessarily have to be so? Slight pain is considered normal as muscles are being put under the strain of resistance but how about lingering pain after the training regimen? Muscle soreness is a common occurrence in bodybuilding but did you know that soreness is not an indication of a successful natural bodybuilding workout? Acute muscle soreness could be felt after a workout, but if the pain could be felt for more than 24 to 48 hours then you could be suffering from delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) or post exercise muscle soreness (PEMS.)
