    First let me say I am not the original author of this, I found it on a forum on another site, and it is impressive enough to repost here.

    10 bodybuilding codes to life
    #1- it's all a diet, whether I'm eating skinless chicken and rice, OR pizza, steaks, and mashed potatoes. I think of the word DIET as an extreme form of eating to achieve something that does not appear "normal" Dieting is not comfortable, nor is bulking usually, even if it does involve eating things that taste good, the quantity gets old fast. So if your comfortable with it then re-check your plan of attack.

    #2- Just because your bulking up does not mean you should be eating a gazillion calories everyday. My advice is once/wk take a day-two where you lower your calories back down to 3,000 or so(I'm over 250lb) It helps keep you from getting too lethargic and sluggish to train good. Yes, I believe there gets to be a point when it's overboard and you need a day-two to utilize what's already present in the body before you feed it too much. You'll find your not quite as lethargic and your lifts may actually go up by doing so.

    #3- Be realistic. Set a goal that's easier to visualize. Look, if your 220 lbs and your goal is to be 250 lbs shredded within one year then good luck. Why not make a goal such as achieving a weight of 250 lbs and still see the outline of your abs. Then try to come back down to your present bodyweight next spring only half the bodyfat. If your goal is easier to visualize then it's easier to stick to.

    #4- Your body is an investment, not an expense. Quit bitching about how much money it costs for supplements, juice, and groceries. Start looking at people who don't do what you do. They're all the ones w/ the back problems, the constant surgeries which never work and could have been avoided it they weren't such pussies and trained. The ones with the triglyceride counts that are absurd, the one's who have a significant other who is so disgusted they wont have sex with them anymore. These people walk around miserable, sick, and tired, ALL THE TIME!! Do I shell out money on my body, your damn right I do. I think of it just like a monthly car payment. So if you pull that wallet out of your tight jew ass, quit bitching about the expense, and start thinking like I'm telling you to, you'll have more of what you need to grow.

    #5- Make more money, see #4. Look, you got more loot then you got more for gear, food, supps. What's that Mr. Sorry ass? "Oh, girls only want guys with money!!" Not really, you just dont see too many guys who are jacked AND rich. The two go hand in hand quite nicely, and you wear a label that screams, Money, Power, excellence. Quit sulking in your sorrows and make more, your a fucking man!! Maybe women are more attracted to guys who take charge than their money, ever think of that? Women eat it up. So as you try to figure out new ways to grow, think of new ways to grow financially too. If your sick and tired of your $9/hr desk job then fucking use it as motivation to get ahead. Every time your in that grocery store and get mad at the price of eggs, remind yourself of why your upset. YOU DONT MAKE ENOUGH.

    #6- I think people let outside influences hold their gains back. Clothing commercials, malls, reality television, credit cards, fuck em'. They all breed insecurity. Perfect example, John Doe wants to be big. John goes out on a Fri night. John watched a TV show the night before where some 130 lb faggot wearing Abercrombie shit(which BTW if you can fit into any of this shit please get your ass to BK FAST) has all these chicks falling all over him. So now this clown thinks if he goes out and buys Abercrombie jeans girls might like him, but in the back of his mind he then starts saying "Wait, if I bulk up I wont fit into these pants, and chicks will no longer like my commercialized punk ass" You get my drift? It's your world, live it, embrace it.

    #7- Everyday is a new day. So you missed a meal yesterday? It doesn't matter, it was yesterday, do your best today. Did you fuck up and drink 6 beers last night? doesnt matter, today is not last night. New day, get back on track and keep moving. MOST PEOPLE spend more time that day dwelling on why they cannot lift, why they did not lift well. Dont think this way, it's easier to quit by dwelling on your mistakes. Remember, THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS PERFECT EATING!!!

    #8- Do what others do not. Just ask yourself "Does 90% of the population do this? ie; deadlifts, wide grip pull-ups, waking up at 5:30am to eat and train, save money, motivate yourself to make more money(See #4) Do what's uncomfortable in life and make it a routine, so eventually doing what normal people do becomes uncomfortable.

    #9- Surround yourself with others who do what you do. My friend and I are like an underground cult. We bodybuild, we want to be rich,and are self motivated, and we are there for each other, no matter what!! We feed off each others motivation and work ethic. I wis

    My bad...didn't realize that got truncated. Here are number 9 and 10.

    #9- Surround yourself with others who do what you do. My friend and I are like an underground cult. We bodybuild, we want to be rich,and are self motivated, and we are there for each other, no matter what!! We feed off each others motivation and work ethic. I wish I could tell you there was a bunch of us. There is not, it's him and I. I haven't found anybody else in town with the same level of commitment. He's also my business partner. All my real gains the past 2 years were hard earned, with him telling me more, more, more. So if you have somebody like this your lucky and dont forget it.

    #10- Have fun!!! Remember, there is no finish line in this sport. It's a lifestyle. But you can only be a slave to yourself for so long. So go out a couple times a month, have a couple rum and cokes, and live life too!! But when the drunk guys all come up to you and ask you how you got so big, and what supps to take, and start talking about the glory days when they could bench 1000 lbs, just rest assured your knocking your goals down, you just dont realize it. When you get more guys approaching you than girls(and no, i'm not talking in a gay way, more inspirational and motivating) you know your on the way to being a big fucker.


    So remember these 10 bodybuilding codes to life. Live them, study them. I hope I have helped some of you find motivation to change your life for the better.

    definitely some inappropriate comments in there, but ignoring those, the guy makes a good point: keep your eyes on the prize and realize that its going to take a lot of effort, time, and focus... but if you commit to it, you'll be beyond pleased with yourself (and so will everybody else).

    In addition to the random inappropriateness...this is, after all, a gay fitness site. Why would we care what is attractive to women?

    I can't fathom why my Jew ass remains tight. And it's not just my wallet tote. I've got a hairdryer, camera-phone and 45 feet of bungee cord shoe-horned up in there. I guess I was just born with a tight ass.

    His point could be made with less embellishment, proper grammar, less moronic bias, and less machismo but the basic ideas are sound. Decide what you want and strive for it, hang around with people with similar goals so that they can support you, don't be hard on yourself over minor failures, decide what sacrifices you are willing to make for what you want and make them. Honestly this is all basic psych 101 stuff... It always annoys me when humanist philosophy is suddenly marketed as something new, it's from the 60's!

    We all must realize this was writin on another site not a gay site. The author was a Straight body builder and he sounds like an ass hole yes. I do think there are some good things about this artical though. I should take to heart #7. Everyday is a new day.

    Just a quick response to the comments here so no one has any confusion. I do not support antisemitism. I realize the primary focus here is not women, but men; I kinda gathered that before I signed up for the account. You have to be capable of substituting male for for female, because I think a lot of men also find someone that is level headed, has control of their finances and is financially sound to be attractive as well because it shows some self discipline.

    Next, yes this did come from a straight bodybuilder's site, so please take any bias with a grain of salt and try to see past the trivial aspects and perhaps immature way of explaining a few points to see the bigger picture. You have to realize on a site that has millions upon millions of posts, there are constantly people whining about one thing or another. Try to understand that in the authors frustration with these sniveling knot heads that he has perhaps breached the "politically correct" line. So be it, try to read past it and see the point that he is getting at. Because I am not the original author I chose to post it in its form as written and unedited, as I would hope anyone using my words would do.

    Let me summarize with political correctness for those of you who just can't quite grasp it, or those that find the above version to sharp to appreciate.

    1.)Half of all your success in physical fitness is diet. You need to learn to live with the idea that your eating habits might need signficant change and lets face it change can be hard. But you either have to put down that triple angus BK burger or live with the fact that you are probably going to have a triple angus ass.

    2.) No matter what they tell you eating 10,000 calories a day will not add pure muscle, its the quickest way to end up with the triple angus ass mentioned in number 1.

    3.) Goals, Goals, Goals. We've all heard of them, learn to use them, they are your friend. LOOK up SMART goals on goggle. Then get out of your chair and go do something.

    4.)Your body is going to be an investment one way or the other, you can choose between healthy foods, a gym membership and some supplements, or you can have the 250,000 dollar open heart surgery bill. Choose carefully the decision is non refundable. If you aren't prepared to go "all in" on the things that are most important to you in life you are setting yourself up to fail.

    5.) You are a man, at least most of you, regardless of what you might think. If in doubt check for external genitalia, if still in doubt consult google. If you are not happy with how much money you have you then spend less time reading forums and go out and make some more money. Guys find other guys that have their head on straight and have control of their finances to be attractive, it says confidence, self control, independence, self sufficiency, personal stability, and that their cars probably aren't sitting on blocks in front of the trailor, all things that go along way in establishing some chemistry. It's the way it is, deal with it or don't...your call. This DOES NOT say put the dollar ahead of everything else, and if you read it that way its a pretty good chance that you have none and instead of going out and making some more, you would rather blame the evil commercial world. Evil it may be, but laziness is one of the seven sins, see sloth on goggle.

    6.) If you are going to succeed in physical fitness you have to be prepared to block out all the voices competing for you attention. Until you make a no interruptions, no excuses, no distractions policy, you aren't going to succeed. It doesn't matter what brand you wrap a jelly roll in, everyone sees a jelly roll in fancy wrapping.

    7.)Where attention goes, energy flows. Focusing on your failures is the quickest way to replicate them. Move on focus and keep the picture of your achievement firmly held in your mind and you will get there much quicker then brooding over what you took home last night after the 10 drinks.

    8.) Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. - Al Einstein. Doing what others do not, excelling where others will not, will always get the attention of those who would rather have you remain stuck in the mud and downtrodden with the rest of the pack. Change is hard, but eventually excellence will become a way of life. If you can achieve excellence physically, it will spill over into every other area of your life, it has the power to change your life, but you have to get off the couch to do it.

    9.) It's hard to fly like an eagle when you are surrounded by turkeys. Like down with dogs and wake up with fleas. Need I say more?

    10.) Quit taking everything so fricken seriously guys, seriously lighten up. The fact that you see everything as insulting, or inappropriate and offensive, the fact that you take anything personally only reflects your own narcissism. Learn to get over yourself, you are not the center of the universe. You are actually one person among 6 billion, on one little planet among billions, in a little galaxy among who knows how many, and at that you are on a tiny planet in the outer most regions of that little insignificant galaxy. Get some perspective and take it easy. Have some fun, live your life without needing everything to be personal. I guarantee if you try it, you will find it relieving.


    THERE IS THAT BETTER?

    OK! There are some tips in that! I think we do not have to keep it at a whole!! It is not too bad, it does not need any polishing or grammar embellishment HA HA HAicon_lol.gif
    It is a kick in the arse for the ones in need of it or just a reminder on what commitment could mean!
    Have good time you all!!

    Even after reading your 'translation,' I'm still left with the same concerns I've seen other guys express. My problem is this: humans are holistic beings and we live in very intricate societies of ideas. If, for instance, I get it in my head that I want to change my body, that idea came from somewhere, and the source matters because the message itself is influenced by where it's come from. If I decide I should do "X" or think "Y" because someone else says so, I have to examine why they say so before I adopt their idea, otherwise I could be complicit in a whole ideological regime and be legitimizing it. If I adopt a certain 10 rules, or start a certain routine, because some bigoted, sexist, homophobic ass says it'll "make you a man," I have to look at what kind of "man" it'll make me. Is it one like the guy who's spouting off about "fags and jews" and who thinks that life's all about pumping iron and getting women? No thanks; I'd rather inspire myself, even if it takes longer. It's not that different from choosing food or clothes-- good food that's produced unethically might as well be poisoned, and nice clothes produced with slave labour amounts to a tacit endorsement of slavery. It all comes back to the source. Anything you take into yourself, into your mind and your body, is layered with meaning.

    I understand completely where you are coming from when you use the clothes slave labor analogy. I never really thought of it that way, and you make a valid point to a degree. You make a good enough point that I will probably consider that in the future.

    At the same time I hope you can see the underlying message of discipline, and doing what it takes, and using what you have, and such. He does make some valid points, and at the end of the day, I am an ideas guy not a details guy. I guess its all in how you perceive the world.

    I object for a different reason. I've already commented on the disgusting anti-semitism, but there's another point: he isn't listing rules on how to become a bodybuilder, he's listing rules on how to become an obsessed pain-in-the-ass. Bodybuilding is a sport. The minute it becomes a "way of life" it has become too important.

    I know plenty of grounded, interesting men who are serious bodybuilders but understand that there must be time for movies, and politics, and playing with dogs, and being silly, as well as lifting heavy things. This yutz would consider them losers. I consider him bizarre, and worse, dull.

    Bodybuilding is a sport, as much as baseball or tennis or swimming. There's a word for anyone who spends every waking minute doing these things, and who chooses his friends solely from people who share his single-mindedness.

    The word is "bore".
