I’ve written a lot of guideposts in recent months and I missed some solid, bodybuilding philosophy, something that lies at the heart of this blog. Developing your physique is a rather controversial activity, considered by some as a vain pursuit, and by others as a way to improve oneself in the realm of body and mind. Part of this debate may be the question of whether bodybuilding is a sport, which I will try to answer today based on my own experiences in this area.

I’ve been thinking about writing a sort of a trick guide like this for a while now. I started wondering what fitness hacks I use, consciously or unconsciously, to make my diet and workouts more enjoyable. I mean, they’re not exactly a burden for me, but if there are ways to make life easier, why not take advantage of them? With that said, I encourage you to read this post, which I hope will help you optimize your own process of improving your physique.
Fitness is an individual journey. The desire to embark on it must come from within. It is important to understand the essence of internal motivation from the start, without which achieving long-term results will simply be impossible. To make life easier, you can join a proven path of behaviors, but that does not guarantee success in itself. You still have to experiment and take responsibility for what you do.
People seem to have a natural tendency to exert control over their surroundings. Initially, taming nature was absolutely necessary to survive until the next sunrise. Over time, however, the desire for control began to extend to other people, which can create a number of problems. Control, in the broader sense of the word, is therefore both necessary and dangerous. In the context of fitness, however, control over one’s own body is a positive phenomenon, which I will try to convince you of in this post.
Everyone who starts their fitness or bodybuilding journey has some idea about the effects of training, but seems to know little about the very process of working on their physique. As a result, they become fixated on the distant goal and see the path leading to it as an unpleasant necessity that they would prefer to skip. Well, let me tell you something. If you want to be successful at the gym, don’t focus too much on the results and instead start loving the process!
One of the most important and evergreen questions troubling humanity is the one about the meaning of life. We search for sense in nearly everything we do in order to be able to face adversity. If we can’t see the point in something, we simply don’t want to do it. The same goes for physical activity, and that’s why having long term fitness goals is crucial for achieving success. Here’s what I think about them and what mine are.
Good eating habits should be a priority in everyone’s life, not just of those who are into sports. This area is too important and influential to be neglected.

Here are some proven strategies and areas for optimizing your diet.
