Is this in response to something someone here said? I'm detecting a subtle trace of defensiveness.

  I have done a lot

  USMC
  MP
  SWAT

  Martial Arts
  MMA
  Sky dive
  Bungee jump
  Scuba
  Marathon

  you name it


  I have never thought of any of these as hard though   just saw them as things I had to do


  I will say this though... starving to get super shredded does suck and is very hard   so to me, people who compete in BB have it super tough   I would do the bb thing, but I do not like the thought of being in a g string with a bunch of horny males judging me

Digging up Rocks to expose an old foundation in 90 degree weather.  I ran Cross-Country, Swam distance and have trained consistently with weights since age 16 and NOTHING compares to that at all.

Laugh all you want - there is a ton more anxiety , preparation, and demands for bodybuilding to get to a respectable finish line than most else.  

Just my .02.  

Anyone can come in and look like a schlub, but i think it takes a lot more work to get to the stage and look presentable than some of these other activities  

I've competed in 5 shows , nothing to it.

I have competed in 2 bodybuilding shows and also ran 2 marathons, and without a doubt the shows just break you down mentally so bad.

Although, I used to try to swim lengths of the pool without taking a breath underwater and that was difficult because death could have been imminent as I would push until I would nearly black out.

Combat sports were probably the most physically demanding thing I ever did.
Marine boot camp wasn't all that tough, lots of cardio. SOI was much worse.
Humping gear for miles sucks ass. And fuck range runs.

Yup - the mental anxiety was more than anything 
Wouldn`t have been if you dieted on foods you liked to eat.

Yes - i love working out.   The gym is my sanctuary.   

But the diet and what happens outside the gym is killer to me.  I love beer, i like burgers and dogs.   

Dieting for a show over 16 weeks takes a toll 
I guess everyone is different,  I  ate   tuna, rice  ,chicken  and sweet potato ( every single meal ) for more than 10 years ,I didn't think it was hard at all.

I use to do that!  I almost make two laps, 25 meter pool (not diving in, starting from the wall).  What's your record?  Huh

I mean eating ANYTHING you like.  Cake, Hamburgers whatever.  Not "clean" food, whatever that is.  No such thing as clean or dirty food.

Hand digging out driveways, foundations ect.
A typical monday would have an 8 yard skip dropped off at 7.30, have it full by dinnertime and fill another one that afternoon. Was fucking hard work.

I went through NAVY boot camp, did 5 bodybuilding shows, competed in D1 Track n Field, martial arts for many years, been lifting for years and years,

Now I'm training for these races - Spartan Race, Tough Mudder, and GoRuck Challenge 


So far - no bullshit - the last month of training for a bodybuilding show - mentally is the hardest of all if you do it legit. 

Physically/  Boot camp was not bad physically.   The runs sucked, but the rest was just putting up w bullshit from DI's. 


Bodybuilding shows if you do it legit is fucking hard as hell physically and mentally.   I'm on path for these races so far - and truth be told - its not has hard as training for a bodybuilding show in total when you consider diet, posing, tanning, routines, water, etc. 

Just sayin 

What did you compete in when you were in Division One Track and Field?

You must have a lot of power. I was a sprinter. It has to be hard to compete in races when you're a former field athlete. Shot and hammer guys were always big.
