12 Dumbest Things Ever Said By Bodybuilders

The couple who claim to be the best-looking couple on planet are both image-obsessed bodybuilders. 

This might be the No.1 dumbest thing said by a bodybuilder. Sexiest duo on planet, really? However, this is sure not the only dumb thing these bodybuilders ever said. I mean they’re just so good at saying dumb things:

1.Chicken, egg whites, rice, and rice cakes ONLY…..If you want to get shredded. 

PLEASE DO NOT do this! Your body needs micro nutrients and vitamins.  

I know of so many aspiring bodybuilders and people that just want to better their physique that hire people who tell them to follow this diet. FIRE THEM! 

2.Fats make you fat.

Fats are essential for countless essential body processes. All fats are good (trans fats excluded) in some proper ratio. Rotate your fat sources and watch your libido and test levels skyrocket. I’m just saying… 

3.You’ve gotta lift heavy to grow

 

Cmon people! You’ve got to lift properly, and maximize tension to grow! Don’t worry, its easier than it sounds once you get it. 

4.A calorie is a calorie (all calories are created equal)

 

Sounds like meathead math to me! Even when trying to get as big as possible, the WORST thing you can do is eat indiscriminately. This will set you up for insulin resistance and LESS muscle growth.  

I can’t believe all the kids brainwashed into thinking pop tarts are okay! 

5.I’m trying to work my “tie ins”

I still laugh when I read this. J WTH is a “tie in” There is NO SUCH THING people. A muscle is a muscle, and its structure is what it is. Where two muscles tie together is simply where two muscles tie together.  

You CANT train that. You can certainly train a muscles ENTIRE length, but not the space between two muscles. 

6.I don’t want to “overtrain”

 

Listen, an hour or two 5 days a week IS NOT overtraining…EVER…PERIOD. Unless you don’t eat, and don’t sleep…in which case overtraining is the least of your worries. 

7.Narrow grip T-Bar rows work my inner back

 

A-mazing! NO-IT-DOES-NOT! Narrow grip on back simply impedes ranges and forces you to use greater internal rotation of the shoulder joint (rotator muscles) 

8.Fasted cardio burns more fat

 

NOPE! Never been proven. Ever. In fact, it has been showen that cardio(or any exercise for that matter) done after consuming calories has a greater thermogenic effect. (more calories burned) 

9.When you stop working out, does all that muscle turn to fat?

 

Clearly every bodybuilder that stops training will turn to a massive fat slob. All that muscle has to go somewhere right? Well, no. Fat and muscle are two completely different entities. Its like turning chicken breasts into donuts.  

Although it might be cool, I don’t see it being likely anytime soon unless you can track down Doc Brown and his flying Delorean. 

10.Saturated fat is bad 

Actually, saturated fat has never been shown to have any correlation with all the negative things the media might have you believe. Heart disease etc. When it does become bad is when its combined with sugars!  

Saturated fat on its own actually have many great positive benefits in the body. Hormone production etc. 

11.I’m going to diet and lose bodyfat before I start weight training

 

Ok, maybe not said by a lot of bodybuilders, but I still here this idiocy all the time.  Listen people, Weight training is THE best way to lose body fat and change composition.   

12.I just can’t build my triceps (insert YOUR lagging bodypart here).

 

YES you can. You just need to learn HOW to do things properly. They might never be the best in the world, but you can bring up any lagging bodypart to match the rest of your body with knowledge of proper execution.
