I agree, OP, about bodybuilding, when done in a healthy manner.
Don't forget your cardio!
I've been lifting free weights for over 40 years.
I've never tried to bulk up and be massive... just firm
I lift lighter weights to stay in shape.
My weak point has been the cardio stuff.
I've always ridden bicycle to try and strengthen my heart.
(I have bad knees, inherited from my father and jogging was out of the equation.)
Last year, after performing at a winery owned by 4 doctors, I had a conversation with one of the Doc's.
We talked about wine, grape growing, owning a winery, being a Dr.; and the current state of ****d.
And, we talked lastly... about music.
He said that, as a solo singer, I must be in pretty good cardiovascular shape.
He said singing (a lot) was an excellent way to strengthen your heart.
I had never really thought about it?
But, the Voice (Sinatra) was a heavy smoker and drinker and lived to the age of 83.
Could it have been the balance between the abuse... versus the healthy benefits of singing?
I'll try and let ya know.
