    Default This obsession with muscle building

    Am I the only one who doesn't get this whole obsession with building muscle (including abs etc), and prefers simply keeping a low body fat count and been thin? It just seems like so much effort, and tbh most of the results that come from bodybuilding and weight lifting (abs in particular) just look so unnatural and repulsive to look at. I'm saying that it's good to be overweight, or to be an obese slob, but my idea of a good look is to simply keep body fat to a minimum and achieve a natural lean look.

    Post a picture of what physique you think is desirable. I can almost guarantee that it requires lifting weights. No one here is trying to look like Ronnie Coleman.

    Ah ha, now I see what you lot are getting at. Sorry, but when I seen the word bodybuilding, the likes of Ronnie Coleman is exactly what came to my mind and I thought you lot were trying to emulate that kind of look. Sorry about the confusion.

    Yeah, not at all man. I think physiques like the following are pretty universally appealing (and even these are probably too big if your primary goal is to attract women):

I also did MMA(kick boxing and brazilian jiu jitsu) which I shredded body fat. Bulking up gives you lot benefits like intimidating ass holes and ladies pay more attention when you walk in to a room.

    Life is not a game, and therefore there is no such thing as cheating. It's only cheating if you're in some sort of competition with some sort of defined set of rules for you to break; such rules do not exist on the grander scale of life - at the beach, in the gym, in the club, etc. There is no cheating out in the jungle, only winning and losing. Just a fact.

    Also, I don't think any of thse guys are "too big." They're more like "medium-sized."

    As for physique, the universally-accepted one in society seems to tend to be the type involving defined muscles and the whole V-shaped upper body thing - but that is, of course, subject to individual preference. Sort of like ditsy, scrawny blondes with big boobs are the generally-accepted stereotype of women that men are supposed to lust after, but smart dark-haired girls with green eyes and other variations rarely have trouble finding men, and many men (like me) prefer those other types.

    Body building or muscle building requires a lot of dedication and consistency in order to gain muscle and regular work out sessions to product the fruitful results. The bodybuilders have the chances to become addicted to it.

    Protein is one of the most important part of body building. First prefer natural protein intake. Natural protein can be get through egg,pulse. If it is not sufficient than use external protein.
