Bodybuilding is a noble sport that requires dedication, hard work and, above all, smart training and smarter nutrition according to the season’s phases – in-season, post-season, off-season and pre-season. Copying one another is not going to help each other – what suits one bodybuilder will not always work for you!


Across India, many young adults are aspiring to develop muscular bodies – after all, muscle mass, is one of the more sought after fitness goals!


In both cases, diet and nutrition as also supplementation are of utmost important. Also equally critical is periodization – macrocycles, mesocycles and microcycles. Performance enhancing steroids are being increasingly used. Are they useful? What are the risks? What the pros & cons? What is the legal status?


In most cases, bodybuilders train themselves or one another on the basis of personal and related anecdotal experiences.


CCBBC aims to provide the true information so that coaches and personal trainers will guide their clients safely, scientifically and legally.
