Default Bodybuilding Quotes

"Professional bodybuilding is a sport of total dedication. You must dedicate every aspect of every day to the attainment of your goals if you want to succeed. It is not enough to merely go to the gym to "work out." You must put all of your concentration and focus on each rep, on each set, on each exercise to have a successful workout."

Nasser El Sonbaty
IFBB Pro

"The gym is my office. It's where I work. All that other crap about the sport leaves me when I'm training. It's full of balls-out brutal intensity. People can talk all they want, but you've got to bust your ass in the gym, put yourself through the pain, to make it in this sport."

King Kamali
IFBB Pro

"If you don't follow a good nutritional plan, you're bodybuilding with one arm behind your back."

Shawn Ray
IFBB Pro

"Lee Haney does with muscles what Michelangelo did with clay. If a body was ever a work of art, his would hang in a museum."

USA Today

"Intensity is just another word for pain. You should feel that intensity every time you pick up a weight. If I don't feel the sensation of this intensity down to my bones, then I know that have to increase my focus and my weight. It gives me great satisfaction."

Claude Groulx
IFBB Pro

"I've been training so long, its second nature to push myself to the limit."

Ronnie Coleman
Mr. Olympia

"The government's definition of carbohydrate is not the same as a bodybuilder's definition of carbohydrate."

Jeff Feliciano
Contributing Editor-FLEX Magazine

"Plain free-weight squats work better for me than anything."

Nasser El Sonbaty
IFBB Pro

"Protein gadgets aren't worth a damn if you can't digest and absorb the protein matrix in which they are delivered."

Jeff Feliciano
Contributing Editor-FLEX Magazine

"Just because your triceps have fallen behind your biceps, doesn't mean you should back off your triceps workouts."

Ronnie Coleman
Mr. Olympia

"The single biggest mistake that most beginners make is putting 100% of their effort into the positive (concentric) part of the rep, while paying no attention to the negative (eccentric) segment."

Dorian Yates
6-Time Mr. Olympia

"Why bother lifting weights if you aren't following a sound nutritional regimen? Sure, it may be fun, but are you really accomplishing anything?"

Robert Cheeke
Founder & President
Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness

"I can assure you that Ronnie (Coleman) and Shawn (Ray) need considerably more protein than Marlon Brando requires or the FDA suggests as a minimum."

Milos Sarcev
IFBB Pro

"Bodybuilders must take all nutrients into account when construction their diets-including vitamins, minerals, and fluids."

Gunter Schlierkamp
IFBB Pro

"Sell yourself short on nutrition and you're selling yourself short on maximizing your physique development."

Ernie Taylor
IFBB Pro

"I'm constantly changing the exercises I don in my workouts. I never do the same thing twice, and I never do the same weight for two sets in a row."

Dennis James
IFBB Pro

"I often use a weight that feels very light, but then I do my reps with total concentration and absolute strictness."

Gunter Schlierkamp
IFBB Pro

"Never underestimate the power of wide-grip pull-ups to develop width and size."

Ronnie Coleman
Mr. Olympia

"Bodybuilding is not just a sport; it's a way of life. If every aspect of your life is not focused on making the sacrifices necessary to build your best physique, you will ultimately fail and never reach your full potential."

Robert Cheeke
Founder & President
Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness

"Work harder than anyone you know, and be lucky enough to be blessed with the genetics it takes."

Nasser El Sonbaty
IFBB Pro

"The path to added muscle is consuming more calories than the amount needed to keep your current bodyweight unchanged."

Dorian Yates
6-Time Mr. Olympia

"Hardgainers tend to under eat, but their body type and metabolism demand they eat way more than average-more meals, more calories per meal, more quality meals each day."

Jose Raymond
NPC Amateur Bodybuilder

"Food and nutrition are way more important to gaining mass than training. I mean, you can work out all day, but if you're not feeding the muscle, it's not going to grow."

Victor Martinez
IFBB Pro

"Success isn't just coming to me in a lightning strike like it does for some guys; its taking a bit longer, but that doesn't make it any less probable."

Tom Prince
IFBB Pro

"One day soon, I'm going to walk onstage with a physique close to perfection."

Chris Cormier
IFBB Pro

"Women really do pay attention to a man's glutes. A tight, compact ass is often voted even more desirable than muscular arms and chest. So, if you're lacking, start squatting!"

Ronnie Coleman
Mr. Olympia

"Add 200-250 more calories a day into your diet or change your food choices. It could be as simple as eating a quarter-cup more rice with each meal, putting more butter on your potato, or having a piece of fruit for dessert."

Jim Romagna
NPC Amateur Bodybuilder

"Bodybuilding has been my life; if it weren't for bodybuilding, I don't know what I'd be doing. I look at bodybuilding as who I am."

Tom Platz
IFBB Pro

"Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder, but don't nobody wanna lift no heavy-ass weight!"

Ronnie Coleman
Mr. Olympia

"Nothing is as important to muscle growth as good nutrition."

Frederick C. Hatfield Ph.D.
Nature's Sports Pharmacy

"When I tell people that I'm vegan, the first question asked is, 'How do you get enough protein?' This immediately tells me that they are uneducated and know little or nothing about nutrition."

Robert Cheeke
Founder & President
Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness

"I love training more than anything else I do. You've got to if you want to be a bodybuilder. I love every exercise, you name it. Any exercise you give me, I take it as a challenge and I can make it my favorite. That's how you become a pro bodybuilder. You learn to love every rep of every exercise and treat it like its special."

Dennis James
IFBB Pro

"Every aspect of bodybuilding comes from hard work. You can't add muscularity without hard work. You can't improve symmetry without hard work. You can't get conditioned without hard work. If you want to be a bodybuilder you have to devote yourself to hard work."

Pavol Jablonicky
IFBB Pro

"You have thousands of choices and decisions to make everyday. You have the right to not go to the gym, you the right to follow poor nutritional habits, you have the right to overwork yourself and not get enough sleep. You must accept the fact that your physique has suffered because of the choices that you make everyday."

Robert Cheeke
Founder & President
Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness


"The most important lesson I've learned is that the most productive exercises are simple and compound."

Markus Ruhl
IFBB Pro

"Bodybuilding is supposed to be a solitary sport, and bodybuilders need to stay focused on themselves and the improvements they're making, not on how they compare to other bodybuilders."

Dennis James
IFBB Pro

"Shoulder width is an absolute requirement for displaying the V taper that will make or break your physique."
Dorian Yates
6-Time Mr. Olympia

"You've got to block out all distractions when you train. Your focus has to be 100% into the rep. You've got to get into a zone. You know you're in the zone when guys in the gym look you in the eye and then quickly turn away 'cause they see the fire. You've got to be all business."

Mike Matarazzo
IFBB Pro

"One of the greatest experiences in life is achieving personal goals that others said would be, 'impossible to attain.' Be proud of your success and share your story with others."

Robert Cheeke
Founder & President
Vegan Bodybuilding & Fitness

"If you want to get big, you gotta learn to feel it. No exercise works if you don't feel it in the muscle that you're targeting. A lot of guys rely on mirrors to tell them whether or not an exercise is working, but that doesn't make sense to me. I think about getting the ultimate contraction in the muscle I'm targeting and I don't stop until I feel that."

Jay Cutler
IFBB Pro

So much nonsense could be stopped if people would just use common sense, listen to the above advice, and stop trying to turn this into rocket science.
