Bodybuilding an exercise in diversity

I can’t speak for all the amateur gym-bound bodybuilders who are giving bodybuiding a bad reputation in the wider community, but I think elite bodybuilding is often over-looked as a one-track and narrow sport. But how many other athletes are strong, flexible, look like our fantasy human icons, and are fit, nimble, and quick. How many carry 100+ kilos and practise plyometrics? And of course diet is an important part of most elite sports, but could anything compare to a bodybuilders diet? How many athletes are getting up at 3am to have a meal, and get up again at 5am to start the day with a fat-burning cardio workout? Bodybuilding is 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, for most of your adult life, and mixing it up is what keeps it interesting.
