Power of Being Patient
November 2, 2005
Being patient when trying to achieve your goals is a quality few
people possess. It doesn`t matter if you are trying to gain muscle or lose
fat, you must have the ability to be patient. In today`s world, everything
is moving at such a fast pace and being patient is not something a person
wants to do. In the sport of bodybuilding, everything you do requires
patience of some sort. You can`t become satisfied with just one day of hard
work, achieving the body of your dreams takes a lifetime.
Most bodybuilders have a strong work ethic. They train hard for years
but end up quitting because they feel their bodies can`t take the stress
that weight training puts one through. It`s the same with workout programs
such as H.I.T. The trainee will lift with all out intensity but give up
training after a few weeks because they`re not seeing the results they want.
Don`t get me wrong, H.I.T. is a great workout, but not one that should be
used for more than a couple of weeks.
To much is worse than to little. Injury and overtraining are the most
common problems of giving to much effort. You see it all the time, a trainee
tries lifting more weight that he can handle or tries to perform dangerous
exercises without the help from a spotter. You also have the ones who go on
an extreme diet for months preparing for a contest. They become disappointed
at their placing and vow to never step foot on a bodybuilding stage again.
This all could`ve been avoided if the person was patient.
Think of reaching your goals as if it were a marathon or an MLB
pennant race. Sure you can go all out in the the beginning, but once you
quit using the same intensity you will fall into a worse finish then what
you would`ve if you set yourself at a pace that is manageable. You cannot
develop a true bodybuilder`s physique with only a few months of training. It
takes years of hard work and consistency to build a body an admirable body.
Being patient is crucial in the sport of bodybuilding. Have you set
yourself at a pace that you feel comfortable or are you spending every
waking minute trying to look like Arnold? Sure, you need to have the goals
you set for yourself in mind, but you also need to do other things as well.
I see it all time, bodybuilders refrain from going out with friends or
having a good time with the opposite sex because of the fear of not being
around their food. You must have the ability to balance out your
bodybuilding goals from life goals or your going to live the unwanted life
bodybuilding can bring. Until next time, Thanks.
