Bodybuilding.com is one of the top information sites on the internet, and we wanted to give you some hints about using it to full advantage for improving your health and workout results. To put this website in perspective for the Senior working to build strength and recover or maintain physical capability, understand this
IF YOU ARE NOT BUILDING STRENGTH, YOU ARE LOSING IT – THERE IS NO MIDDLE GROUND IN AGING.
If you are not actively working to build your muscles, strength, bone density, stamina, flexibility, joint health, then you are losing ground in all these areas as you age. When you look at the pictures on this site of all those huge, shredded men and those way-too- muscled women, please don’t imagine that you might accidentally get to look like them. The odds of you ever getting that big or that ripped are near zero, so, especially you women, do not be afraid, and don’t let disgust keep you from learning. The supplements they take (short of steroids) and the exercises they do will work for you, even at advanced ages. So look beyond their appearance to the techniques, diets and supplements that you can use to build yourself to the fitness and shape you desire
The website is divided in two parts: the Supersite and the Superstore: The Superstore has excellent information about all their products. You want to know everything about a product before you allow it into your body, and BB.C features very complete information.
