Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I am in love with bodybuilding for so many reasons. Here is a list I made so you know.

  1. Makes me feel and look better.
  2. Releases much built up tension I get from the rest of my life.
  3. Girls love my body and that makes me feel good.
  4. I love being strong.
  5. I love every aspect of it, even the pain I feel when I wake up in the morning. That is the best because it tells me that I worked hard the day before and made some progress in the gym that day.

If I had one tip to give to teen or older bodybuilders it would be something that has been said so many times: "No pain, no gain!" I love the pain and that is the reason I go to the gym. The next day I am hurting, sore, tired, etc. You just have to keep on trying until you get results.
