9 Reasons: Why do Prisoners look so much jacked and muscular
If you choose to be ORDINARY, don’t be mad at someone who chooses to be EXTRAORDINARY.
We have seen prison inmates through different sources like pictures, videos, movies, etc. One common trait that we all observed is they all look jacked nd huge. But the question is how they achieve that kind of a body without the help of supplements, proper equipment, and professional training.
We all have been trying hard to get in good shape but most of us fail to achieve that body, then how those prisoners obtain that huge muscle mass and strength? What is the difference between a common man and a prisoner? The difference lies in their schedule, we will be explaining to you the basic technique of how they achieve that kind of body.
Why are prisoners so muscular and jacked?
Before we start any discussion it’s essential to understand how and why they do it.
#1 Power Posing
Now imagine you just sent to prison for some crime, what would be the first thing you would notice there? You will get a feeling of being an only seal in an ocean full of sharks. That’s what an average prisoner feels when he is sent to prison for the first time, he will be left with only two option in hand
- Being a victim of other prisoners
- Act like a Badass, so that no one should think of exploiting and dominating you
Power posing helps prisoners to stay alive in that environment. Power posing also helps in boosting the natural testosterone level of the body which ultimately leads to more energy and better muscle gain.
#2 Compound movements
Instead of concentrating on the muscle definition they workout to develop strength and fullness.
Because of the unavailability of sophisticated machinery, most of the prisoners depend on the compound movements. They rely on pushups, pullups, dips, squats, etc.
Big compound movements work remarkably well to improve muscle size and strength.
#3 High Testosterone
It’s a known fact that most of the prisoners have a higher testosterone level due to their notorious behavior and never give a shit behavior. Most people are unaware of the role of a high testosterone levels in developing your overall personality.
Ever wondered why most of our body gets all its development after we turn 16? It’s because our body reaches puberty which leads to a sudden spike in testosterone level which sequentially promotes body development, growth of facial hairs, more power etc.
Most compound exercises (like- squats, lunges, chin-up’s, etc) lead to a spike in body’s testosterone level which ultimately makes a man stronger.
Persistence is a key to achieving success, but are you persistent enough to keep the diet and workout routine? Most of us lack in the persistence and dedication towards our workout and diet.
We are well aware of the fact that prisoners live a scheduled life. They wake up and sleep at the same time every day, they consume the same amount of food every day and they workout. Frankly speaking, “persistence” is all we need to develop a great body.
#5 Lift Heavy
Unlike us, a prisoner’s only intention is to look badass and being more powerful. With a yard full of monsters, watching you lifting is another reason to lift as heavy as you can. There is a simple law of prison, only powerful people will be able to survive there. As a result, these guys lift heavier every time they get the chance to play with those iron bars.
They are not entitled to do any 9-5 job while in prison, their only schedule is eating, lift, sleep, and repeat. Our body recovers most while sleeping, prisoners have usually long sleeping hours while staying behind the bars.
#7 Balanced Diet
Just imagine your life without junk food or alcohol. Yes, they are given only balanced diet that too at a fixed time.
#8 No Stress
So they are jailed for years and taking stress is no more of use, all they have to do is count days, they are no more involved in stressing about paying bills, jobs, unemployment, etc. Stress leads to lower testosterone level which eventually promotes growth hormones. With the help of no stress and long sleeping hours, they make their self-eligible for a better body.
# 9 Steroids
Most of the prisoners are convicted for the involvement in drugs, they are no stranger to the use of drugs. These prisoners are more likely to be indulging in the use of steroids since they were already in contact with such substances.
In the end, all it needs to say is anyone of us can achieve the same body if we could apply the same routine and dedication as prisoners do.
