love bodybuildingBodybuilding is my favorite sport. I have been interested in this sport for many years. Usually, my interest in new things fades very quickly. With bodybuilding, it has not happened yet. I love bodybuilding very much. There are many different reasons why I prefer bodybuilding to any other sports. Let me tell you about the main reasons and factors that make me love bodybuilding. 


When I was a student, I used to play football. I will not exaggerate my football skills if I tell you that I was the best football player in my class. Maybe I was one of the best players in my school. I played very well. Sometimes, I even scored up to five goals within a single football game. Yes, I was a great player. However, there was a single problem with football. I never used to share the ball with members of my team. I always wanted to score a goal. In other words, I wanted all the fame to belong to me. I am a selfish guy. This selfishness has not faded after many years. I am still selfish. Hence, if I continued playing football, I would never succeed in this game. Even if you score a lot of goals, you will need to share the ball with members of your team. If you don't do it, they will hate you. This happened to me. Even though I was the best player, nobody wanted to have me on their team. Hence, my temperament and character made me predisposed to being unsuccessful in group types of sports. 

Bodybuilding is not a group sport. In this sport, you train individually. You do not have to be worried about someone being unsatisfied with you. When you compete and lose, nobody blames you for the loss. In group types of sports, you need to deal with members of your team. You need to take care of common well-being. In bodybuilding, you are responsible for your body. It is an absolutely individualistic kind of sport. You are left on your own. In bodybuilding, your success is fully dependent on your efforts. This is why I love bodybuilding.


Actually, every successful bodybuilder is a narcissist. The level of narcissism in bodybuilders varies from a person to another individual. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jay Cutler, Ronnie Coleman, Kai Greene, and other famous bodybuilders are narcissists. Narcissisms is not selfishness, nor cynicism. Narcissism is not a self-obsession. Narcissism is a more complex psychological concept that should be studied in a separate book.

A person cannot become a successful bodybuilder if he is not a narcissist. Why would a person want to enhance the look of his body? Why would a man want to have six pack abs and huge biceps? Why would a woman want to have a luscious butt? Of course, narcissism is not a single reason why people improve the appearance of their bodies. However, it is precise to say that narcissism is one of the key factors making people perfect their bodies. I love bodybuilding because it suits my character.


No doubts, big and toned muscles make a man look manlier. When you are muscular, clothes fit better on your body. If a professional makeup and haircut make a woman look more beautiful, big muscles will make a man look more gorgeous.


There is a great mental and psychological impact bodybuilding makes upon me. Since I started lifting, I have no depression at all. In fact, I have some stress. However, when you stress your body in the gym, it becomes more adaptive towards the stress you have in your daily life. Heavy physical exercises trigger the release of dopamine. This neurotransmitter is responsible for the sense of wellbeing. It is well-known that heavy lifting increase testosterone production within the body. This hormone is responsible for confidence, sex drive, competitive aggression, and many other things.


Regular physical exercises make us fitter. Bodybuilding is one of the most beneficial sports for your health. At the same time, if done incorrectly, this hobby can make you injured, invalid, and cause many other problems. Everything in this world is dangerous if done improperly. If you lift some gigantic weights, you will injure yourself for sure.
