The difference between bodybuilding
Many people thinks that street workout is the same as bodybuilding. They are terribly wrong. These to sport branches differs from each other in almost every aspect. The only common thing between bodybuilding and street workout is that they both makes you strong and more good looking. But the very basis is very different.
For example performing bodybuilding you just focus on your muscle growth. First of all what you want to build a lot of mass. Then develop your muscles by lifting heavy objects. While bodybuilding you will look bigger way faster then doing street workout. But you need to take tons of food supplements get on a strict diet and workout routine. You will be strong, but you won't be able to perform body weight exercises. Bodybuilding is not very good for your health. But do it smart and careful and you should be able to stay healthy.
While doing street workout your main goal is to attain the full control of your body muscles. You don't need to take food supplements and build mass. The muscle mass will come naturally it will be a slower process then doing bodybuilding but the muscle you gain will be totally controlled by you and you will be able to perform harder and harder exercises.
The main difference between bodybuilding and street workout is that street workout out if way more natural and does not require any weight lifting.
