Bodybuilders…When you think back to the greats like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Franco Columbu and Ronnie Coleman, one word comes to mind, hardcore. During previous eras of bodybuilding when we didn’t have the knowledge about nutrition and training like we do today, bodybuilders were doing everything they possibly could which MIGHT help them maximize their potential. This included many things we now know which don’t actually matter, or worse, are detrimental to our goals. But in today’s age of flexible dieting and “iifym”, it seems we are getting an opposite shift in the tide, where bodybuilders are trying to get away with the minimal amount of work it takes to prepare for a contest. Andrea, Eric and Alberto come together to cover this issue.
Are bodybuilders becoming too relaxed with their bodybuilding goals? What are the benefits to having a “flip the switch” mentality? Can you teach someone how to grind? All of these questions and more are discussed in today’s podcast.
Along with the theme of sacrificing to win, the coaches each tell their own most memorable sacrifice during a contest prep, give advice for how to appropriately handle social events while prepping, and bring up one of the most important questions a bodybuilder can ever ask themselves, “Why am I bodybuilding?”
