Cons of professional sports
In international bodybuilding, competition is very high, the popularity of this sport contributes to a constant increase in the number of people wishing to participate in competitions.

In domestic professional bodybuilding there are a number of problems that almost every athlete has to face in the end. On the way to the champion title you will have to face several difficulties:
• Doping. Many athletes use anabolics and other illegal drugs to empower the human body. However, their use leads to irreversible consequences for the body: hormones and anabolics disrupt normal metabolism, lead to poor heart and liver function. As a result, instead of good health, the athlete receives a whole bunch of diseases.
• Excessive loads. To reach heights, you have to constantly train to the limit. Physical and psychological stress exhausts the athlete, this can lead to nervous breakdowns and deep depression.
• Lack of significant competitions in Russia. Not all domestic athletes can afford a trip to major international competitions, and in their country they quickly run into the “ceiling” and do not find further development paths.
Another serious problem of this sport is the low prize for winning the competition. Here you can’t count on getting a lot of money, and preparing for a high-level competition requires a lot of money. As a result, the lack of funds prevents many Russian athletes from achieving the desired heights and world recognition.
