Bigorexia resembles anorexia in its mechanism - both diseases begin in the head and end with the destruction of the body. For the Bigorectics, the training hall has become a second home. All this to achieve the perfect body sculpting.
And although they spend many hours of super-strength training, they are still unhappy with their muscles. And this is no longer a fascination with a beautiful figure. This is an addiction that doctors call bigorexia. Bigorexia, or rejection of one's appearance!
Bigorectics wants to achieve the ideal of a figure that doesn't exist. He stands in front of a mirror for hours, examines every part of his body, and still sees a skinny guy who lacks adequate muscle mass or an irregular shape.
The same is with the anorexic woman - looking in the mirror, she is also unhappy, because she still thinks that she is too fat, although she has long resembled a skeleton. Undoubtedly, the widespread cult of the body and fashion contributes to the development of bigorexia. The main cause of the disease is the increasing dissatisfaction with their appearance.
Anabolic steroids have been developed as drugs designed to support and recover from severe injuries. They are synthetic derivatives of testosterone, a male hormone that stimulates protein absorption and thus stimulates bone and muscle growth.
Steroids accelerate the growth of muscle mass, but at the same time block the production of natural testosterone.
Bigorexia is a serious mental disorder that requires specialist treatment. The goal of psychotherapy is to change the way you think about your appearance and set more realistic goals for yourself.
It is difficult to get out of this vicious circle because regular use of steroids is quickly addictive. The use of so-called supplements (steroids or hormones), without consulting a doctor, provokes the development of many diseases, including liver and lung cancer.
The consequence is an enlarged prostate or gynecomastia (overgrowth of tissue around the nipples) and a deterioration in sperm quality. Undesirable symptoms appear after a few months of taking doping drugs. Some cause permanent damage to the kidneys and liver.
Among those who use steroids, heart attacks and strokes are frequent, since these drugs increase atherosclerotic changes.
What to do?
We analyze your DNA to determine the best diet and exercise regimen for you!
Genetic factors determine 70% of future athletic success, both in professional sports and in bodybuilding!
Determining your body's response to exercise and nutrition is fundamental to achieving desired and long-term bodybuilding results.
Our team of geneticists, nutritionists, scientists, physicians, and athletes has extensive experience in creating customized exercise and nutrition plans based on personalized DNA tests.
Standard training programs are created according to one formula: aerobic activity for cardiovascular health and weight loss, combined with strength training to increase muscle mass.
Based on scientific discoveries in recent years, it has become known that for optimal training results, the ratio of strength and endurance training is different for everyone, even if the goal is the same.
That is why genetic tests are of key importance, as they are a tool used in the preparation of a training program, taking into account the individual characteristics of a person.
Train with according to the type of muscle fibers in your body!
Your muscles are made up of two different types of muscle fibers. Type 2B fibers are suitable for "explosive" activity in a very short amount of time, such as lifting weights. Type 2A fibers are designed for short to moderate physical activity, moderate to high-intensity activities typical of the most demanding types of training. Genetic DNA analysis, which is responsible for the composition of muscle fibers, determines the type of fiber that is prevalent in your body. Knowing this, you will be able to realize your muscle potential inherent in your genes, properly adjusting your workouts.
