Weight Lifter

Getting into bodybuilding and other physical sports require more than just intense training.

Since the level of work required in these disciplines will push your body to limits, proper health monitoring should always be considered.

That is why bodybuilding bloodwork is recommended before and during specific periods of training. 

Likewise, the need for blood tests is required especially if you are taking dietary supplements.

Nonetheless, since these kinds of work and supplementation are standard bodybuilding and sports training practices, doctors often recommend specific blood tests.

If you are a bodybuilder or someone who plans to become one, this is the right place for you to learn about the bodybuilding blood work you need.

Bodybuilding Blood Testing

 

Bodybuilders should take blood tests such as FBC, CMP-14 (DL2) and tests for cortisol, reproductive hormones, insulin, and thyroid

For professional bodybuilders and athletes, annual health check-ups along with blood tests are non-negotiable.

Health screening necessary for bodybuilding can be more demanding than other less physically challenging sports. 

In the process of achieving leaner muscles and low body fats, your muscular tissues will experience damages that may trigger inflammation and imbalance in enzyme and hormone production.
