Bodybuilding

Bodybuilding uses increasing endurance training to build the muscles of the body for esthetic goals. In bodybuilding, the muscles are put through bodily stress and stimuli, which initiates an adaptation process of the central nervous system and the muscle. With routine workouts, adaptation occurs in 21 days, to which the central nervous system responds by making the muscle more efficient, and the muscle reacts by increasing in size. It also relies on the macronutrients available.
