'BODY-BUILDING'

This blog is not intended to promote 'body-building'.

Extreme Muscle Hypertrophy
Like many sports - although many would deny that 'body-building' is a sport - 'body-building' does not promote optimum health.
Equally, 'bodybuilding' is contrary to the accepted cannons of æsthetics.
Body-building attempts to produce extreme muscle hypertrophy - which is both unattractive and unhealthy.
The general strategy adopted by most body-builders is to make muscle gains, and then attempt to lose body fat (referred to as "cutting").
The bulking phase entails remaining in a net positive energy balance (calorie surplus).
The amount of a surplus that a person remains in is based on the person's goals, as a bigger surplus and longer bulking phase will create more fat tissue (this is unhealthy).
The surplus of calories relative to one's energy balance will ensure that muscles remain in a state of anabolism.
The cutting phase entails remaining in a net negative energy balance (calorie deficit).
The main goal of cutting is to oxidise fat, but also to preserve as much muscle as possible.
The larger the calorie deficit, the faster one will lose weight (this is unhealthy).
However, a large calorie deficit will also create the risk of losing muscle tissue.
The resulting physique, because it is created by unnatural and unhealthy practices is æsthetically un-pleasing (freakish), and unhealthy.
