Were you aware that the majority of bodybuilding programs that you locate in magazines, even those that are allegedly designed by IFBB pros, aren't worth the paper on which they're printed?
Don't let the before and after pictures fool you, these guys and publications usually don't have the best bodybuilding programs or correct advice. The fact of the matter is that the world of professional bodybuilding is fraught with corruption, so you must always proceed with caution.
What is typically the case is that most of these bodybuilders are genetic freaks whose bodies can benefit from nearly any type of exercise plan.
Many of these bodybuilders increase the effectiveness of their bodybuilding programs with steroid and hormone use. Use of these substances is an issue of personal choice, but many of these lifters are threatening their health and well-being with the enormous amounts of these substances that they use.
As they are genetic freaks, these lifters often use bodybuilding programs that stress bodies beyond natural boundaries. These are not the types of workouts that you need to include in your exercise and diet plans.
These bodybuilding programs are great for the few people that respond to any exercise plan, but they will not work for the vast majority of us that are not genetic freaks.
Regardless, these bodybuilding programs are still heavily promoted in many muscle magazines and publications. If you closely examine these publications, you will see that 50% or more of the content in them is nothing more than promotional material for devices, supplements, and diets that say they can give you massive gains.
Stay on the lookout for scams that claim to be bodybuilding programs. Actually, these magazines are filled with ads for the "latest breakthrough" product or program claiming to be able to help you bulk up rapidly.
In other words, these publications are nothing more than "paper infomercials" which are only out to sell you some new product. You don't need to look through any of these magazines to find supplements that work.
As long as you exercise correctly, creatine and protein powders are two supplements that will help you gain muscle mass. Avoid any bodybuilding programs that recommend the use of citrulline, ecdysterone, or myostatin.
These "supplements" have no proven use, and you can actually gain muscle mass more quickly without them. They are nothing more than schemes designed to bilk you of your money.
Unfortunately, many bodybuilding programs are nothing more than scams. Be cautious of any magazine that heavily promotes bodybuilding programs, as it is most likely a part of the schemes designed to take your money and give you nothing in return.
It's fine to read those magazines to see what the pros are doing but ignore any advice they give, it probably won't be useful for you.
In fact, it is likely that their "advice" is harmful for normal people and their bodybuilding programs. Use them for inspiration, but don't treat the advice of these bodybuilders as the foundation of your bodybuilding programs.
All you need to do is eat properly, use supplements that work, and create a healthy workout plan.
