The 13 DUMBEST Things Ever Said By "Bodybuilders"
By IFBB Pro Ben Pakulski 

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

C’mon people! If you've ever read anything I've written you know this is not true. You've got to lift properly, and maximize tension to grow! Don't worry, its easier than it sounds once you get it. In fact, MAX-TENSION is the name of Phase 1 and we're shipping it to your front door -- on your terms -- until this Friday.

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

Sounds like meat-head 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 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 which case overtraining is the least of your worries.

6) Low intensity cardio is best for fat burning

Hopefully, by now, most of you know that this is a big load of BS and that low intensity cardio does in fact burn a greater percentage of overall fat WHILE doing the exercise but does NOTHING for your BMR aka calorie burning for the rest of the day.

7) 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)

8 ) Preacher curls work my lower bicep

Oh boy! Weve ALL done this at some point. Myself included. But thankfully I know better now. As much as it would nice to work my lower bicep or lengthen my bicep, preacher curls do not do this, and either do any exercises. They may overload the lower portion of the strength curve, thereby making you stronger in that part of the range giving you the misconception that youre lengthening your bicep. In reality, you’re just getting overall thickness to your bicep.

9) I must touch the floor on stiff leg deadlift for a full range and maximum stretch in my hammies.

Cool you can touch your toes. That doesn't mean that youre getting a greater range in your hamstrings. It often means that youre achieving a greater range via putting your spine in a compromised position. Go only as far as your hamstrings flexibility will allow.

10) 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.

11) 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.

12) 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. Vinny and I can take ANY physique to 10% body fat with weights and diet alone!

13) 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.
