The concept of bodybuilding dates back in the period of Greeks who were very much into sports, the main motif behind body building is to create a sound body for a sound mind. Lately in our culture, those individuals with thin bodies are considered beautiful. Not much time ago, cubby people, or those with obvious muscles were considered to be healthy and of upper class (those who can afford better quality of food). Coming to bodybuilders, are the bodybuilders healthy individuals? The fact is that they work and exercise on daily basis, take healthy diet and have a proper calorie count for them. They also take supplements to keep an edge for them. The daily fatigue of lifting heavy weights makes their body muscles obvious.
