So you think reading books from the 40’s will give you an awesome physique? Are you silly, stupid, a moron or an imbecile.
It was probably not a good idea to call my neighbor an outdated body. I fail to see how a body can be outdated. Or how you can dream up an ideal physique. You don’t know your genetics, your limits, or even the slightest bit what you can do if you pushed for it. Especially if you were looking for help from people who build natural physiques on a daily basis, it’s not a good idea to come out with thtat kind of attitude.
Here, I will give you one clue. There is no difference between building a natural or a non natural physique. The diet, training, rest periods, sets/reps, tempo all are basically the same. An enhanced physique will simply recover quicker and progress a little quicker.
Last thing. Developing one of those physiques is not something you do while “in the gym working out anyway”. It is a lifetime pursuit. The old BB’s dedicated their lives to building and maintaining those bodies. They were not built in a gym. They were built 27/7/365 with nothing but hard work and dedication.
Why are you looking for outdated information?
Because I don’t want an outdated body like the one you are sporting in your profile. I would like to work towards a balanced “ideal” physique, like, well, gee, many of the old school bodybuilders used to have! They were not massive, but had great balance,symmetry and shape. If I am going to be in the gym working out anyway, why not work towards a goal that “I” want to acheive, rather than someone elses? I am surprised that this site is so anti bodybuilding.
I did not say “reading a book” would do it. The book would be a resource of info.
