Back to my point, I may be wrong but it is my point. To be succesful in bodybuilding you need the following ingredients:
1- talent which is an outstanding system metabolism.
2- Discipline which is lift & eat the right thing at the proper time.
3- Work which means not to play with the dumbbels
4- and Availability which means to be able to make a lots of sacrifices related to his lifestyle becomes Bodybuilding commends a lot of room in one's life.
Point 3 and 4 depend fully on one's will, but point 4 not that easily and point 1 has absolutely nothing to do with your will.
The guys whose photos I have posted here are not average guys going to the gym with the will of sculpting their bodies. They are the most succesful around our CHAMPS like you have champs in Italy.
According to me, they owe their success to the fact that they gather the 4 points.
Let me find some pics to illustrate my point of view.
I ll be back soon.
