This may sound like a repeat of what I have written before but I have to doubt if bodybuilding or building of the body whether through 'strength training' or 'bodybuilding' is good for us.
Studies indicate increased calorie consumption accelerates aging and smaller people seem to outlive big ones.
Other things of concern are:
-sitting and walking around with a stretched out, protruding waist all the time from the constant food consumption
-the joint strain from carrying 'excess' weight
-the heart and internal organ stress from having to supply extra blood, oxygen etc.
-strain, wear and tear from progressively larger weights
-flexibility drain from shortening of the muscles through motions as well as hypertrophy
-time spent feeding
-the inevitable fat gain from bulking leading to self-denial about body composition or frustration about progress and looks
I know all of these factors can be controlled to an extent but not entirely. I believe I would personally feel the best weighing 160 pounds or less at 5'11. Unfortunately that does not allow me to live up to the pressures set by the media as well as women and men.
