FACT TWO they don’t know how to change the state they are in to induce growth. . Guess what? If you do not train properly you will never stimulate you muscles to grow. Improper training is one of the biggest reasons why most people never get the desired results form training.
FACT THREE they do not know what route to take to get there (build muscles). Most bodybuilders have no real system that changes as there body gets used to the training stress they are currently handling. They walk in the gym pick random exercises and rep ranges put there time in and come home. Where is the science in that?
FACT FOUR (which occurs primarily with steroid users who artificially build there muscles) is they can’t keep the muscles they built with drugs because they don’t know how to train or eat in the first place. Once they stop taking drugs there muscles disappear leaving them skinny, fat and in a worse state then if they had never used drugs.
FACT FIVE they do not regularly monitor biofeedback to determine when to change their training to continue growing. If you are not keeping record of your training there is no way you are maximizing your gains. Journal keeping allows you to track your process over years enabling you to fine tune your training and keep the gains coming continuously.
FACT SIX they select exercises that work only work their strengths. Seldom or rarely do they work on their weaknesses and create a truly outstanding balanced physique.
FACT SEVEN Bodybuilders get sucked into bogus well marketed dianabol tablets supplements and glitzy magazine adds to look for quick fixes instead of implementing a systemized, training and nutrition.
FACT EIGHT they do not generate enough intensity in the gym to force the body to grow. Intensity is a very misunderstood term in bodybuilding and most individuals are kidding themselves into believing they are training intensely enough to really grow.
FACT NINE they do not invest in professional specific coaching to help them achieve their best results. Consider this what athlete in the world got to the top of his game without coaching. I will tell you absolutely none! Many bodybuilders erroneously think that they can maximize muscle growth with out coaching. Guess what they are dead wrong!
FACT TEN they let their EGO get in the way of learning the correct and most efficient way of training. They do not listen to or follow sound science or consider what other people have to say. They spend their time shooting down authorities in the sport or spouting off about their own hair brained training routine. Great athletes are life long learners. They check their ego at the door and are always looking for ways to improve, integrate and apply new training information.
I could go on about this for the whole book but you get the idea. Analyze your own thoughts and training and see if there is anything holing you back. Then eliminate your weaknesses and move forward on the path to greatness. By constant and honest self analysis you can be sure to achieve greatness in any field.
