Bodybuilding is also an excellent solution for those who practise endurance sports.
It makes them strong and hardy as long as they strike the right balance between the two disciplines. Indeed, rather than blending them together they should be practised separately.
Similarly, bodybuilders would be well advised to carry out regular cardio training sessions as bodybuilding by itself can reduce stamina.
Contrary to popular belief, cardio training is not harmful for muscle mass.
In general, bodybuilding improves performance in endurance sports whether you are a cyclist or a runner.
It does not result in a weight gain for running but it improves anaerobic fitness, stride efficiency and performance.
In cycling, bodybuilding makes the legs stronger, improves sprint performance and increases the maximum effort time.
It is also a great way to fight against nervous fatigue.
