20th April 2015 - The secret to bodybuilding success
Consistency is the golden rule
The one true secret to bodybuilding success is consistency. Nothing will get you bigger , or more cut than being consistent with your diet, training, rest and supplementation over a period of time.
Sadly bodybuilding is not an overnight type of thing - you can't achieve much in bodybuilding over a single day or even a week. If you're the type of person who needs instant gratification then you are going to be in for a tough time while you wait for the results to come as it can take months or years to achieve the kind of success you desire. Bodybuilding is a marathon, not a sprint, and so it clear then that to achieve any kind of success in bodybuilding you need to be consistent over a long period of time.
This isn't as despressing as it sounds, honest! If you cover the four basics of training, diet, rest and supplementation and keep this going consistently you WILL achieve your goals, and you will be successful at bodybuilding. If you speak to any advanced bodybuilder you will quickly notice a few common traits - all have been training week in, week out for years and all have been consistent with their diet and supplementation. It really is the case that the slow tortoise wins the race.
The true secret then, is to remember that you're in this for the long haul - don't try and achieve the impossible overnight and injure yourself or worse. The longer you can train injury free the more likely you will be to remain consistent and reach your bodybuilding goals!
