Indians have been competing in strength sports for nearly 1000 years now.  It only makes sense that Indians would pick up bodybuilding quickly and become one of the leading countries in the sport.  However, bodybuilding is a rather new phenomena to India, but is quickly rising as India’s favorite sport.

The father of bodybuilding, Eugen Sandow, made sure to visit India during his World tour in 1904-1905.  After all, he could not pass up the opportunity to teach so many people his methods.  He had seen how thin many Indians were in pictures and was not sure how enthusiastic they would be to learn bodybuilding.  He soon discovered how wrong he was when hundreds of people were waiting to greet him at his first stop in Calcutta.  He was soon offered more money in India than he had been offered in the United States and Great Britain to train individuals.  Sandow discovered the appetite for bodybuilding in India was greater than any country he had been to.  He was impressed with the potential for bodybuilders in India and said, “The native Indians have a fine foundation for the building of large, physical men.”

German Bodybuilder Eugen Sandow (1867-1925): Father of modern bodybuilding 

India has 4X the population of the US and therefore 4X better odds of producing a Mr. Olympia winner.  In India, the average man is 5’5” which aligns nicely with the average height of a winning Mr. Olympia at 5’8”.  India does not have the major money making sports like the NFL, NBA, and MLB.  In these professional sports in the US you can be a below average player and still make a million dollars a year while in bodybuilding you must win the Mr. Olympia, have several sponsors, and guest pose all over the World to attain similar compensation.  India has many professional sport leagues, but none come close in salary to what the big three in the US pay.  While the US loses many great potential bodybuilders to these sports, India does not.  If the opportunities, prize money, and sponsorships increase India could easily rise to the top as the premier country for bodybuilding.  Sponsors are only just beginning to discover Indian bodybuilders as marketable athletes here in the US.  It certainly helps that India has the second most English speakers only behind the US.

With the powder keg fully loaded, what could cause the spark that brings Indian bodybuilding to the mainstream?  The 1970s bodybuilding scene in the US (often referred to as the Golden Era), was very similar to that of India’s current state of bodybuilding.  Prize money was low, and sponsorships were nearly non-existent.  Bodybuilders competed for the love of it.  Then, in 1977 Pumping Iron starring Arnold Schwarzenegger came out which caused an explosion in the bodybuilding and fitness industries.  Prize money increased substantially along with sponsorships and the sport took off.  The same thing could just as easily occur in India through Bollywood.

Although India has lagged countries much smaller than itself in producing bodybuilding champions, the potential is there.  Eventually, bodybuilding contest producers and sponsors will realize the potential and capitalize.  It is only a matter of time before we see an Indian hoist the Sandow trophy as Mr. Olympia which would certainly be fitting as it was Sandow who first realized the bodybuilding potential India has.  Will it be five years, ten, twenty?  Enduring Aesthetics podcast got together to discuss this issue and consulted with IFBB Classic Physique Pro Amit Roy to find the answer.

Many of us enjoy a cheeky drink now and then. But are you aware of the impact alcohol can have on your testosterone levels? Beer, wine, and even supposedly ‘healthy’ spirits can play havoc with hormone production, not to mention your waistline. If you’re looking to get or maintain a lean, muscular physique, then watching your alcohol intake should be high on your list of priorities. In this article, we look at how drinking can affect your testosterone levels and the impact this has on your body.

Testosterone & alcohol

Testosterone is the main male sex hormone and it contributes to all of those things that make us ‘manly’. We’re talking about our muscles, deep voice, facial hair, and numerous aspects of our sex drive. Without enough testosterone in your body, your libido will decrease and you’ll struggle to get or maintain an erection. This isn’t something any of us want to face, so it’s important to keep your t-levels within the healthy range.

Unfortunately, consuming alcohol isn’t going to help. It suppresses the production of testosterone and slows down its release. This means that drinking alcohol will steadily decrease your t-levels as well as sabotaging your efforts to stay lean. Without sufficient testosterone, you’ll struggle to get the results you want in the gym and in the bedroom.

How it affects your metabolism

When you consume alcohol, your body goes into an internal meltdown. Most people can deal with one or two drinks, but any more than that and your body has to act fast. You might not realize it, but you’re flooding your system with a substance that it finds toxic. So, it goes into overdrive trying to expel as much of it as possible (which is one of the reasons you start to pee more).

When your body perceives a threat, it starts to shut down non-essential processes and focus on survival. Your metabolism instantly switches from burning macronutrients (like carbs, fat, and protein) to breaking down and expelling the alcohol. This means that anything you would have normally burned is immediately shunted into storage. The result is either more body fat or greater glycogen stores and water retention. Either way, you immediately begin to pack on the pounds while your body deals with the alcohol.

Alcohol & weight gain

Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram, almost double the amount found in carbohydrate and protein. Because it’s so energy dense, you can quickly overload on calories when you’re out drinking for the night. But it’s not just this direct effect that’s concerning – alcohol also lowers your inhibitions and stimulates your hunger. Two hormones in particular; leptin and ghrelin, become more active which makes you feel super-hungry. This means that you’re more likely to overeat unhealthy junk foods after drinking. Plus, most of us also munch on high-fat and high-carb meals in an effort to cure our hangovers the next day. This contributes to further weight gain and is a devastating one-two punch for your system. If you end up skipping the gym because you’re feeling too rough, then the effect is even greater.

Plummeting testosterone levels

Unfortunately, that’s not the end of the story. If you drink alcohol on a regular basis then you’re likely to gain excess weight, particularly around your midsection. The classic beer belly doesn’t just undermine your work at the gym – it will decrease your testosterone even further. Abdominal fat contains an enzyme that suppresses t-levels and increases estrogen (which is why some guys develop ‘man boobs’ from drinking). So, the more weight you gain around your middle, the lower your testosterone levels become. And the less of this hormone you have, the harder it is to build lean muscle mass. This means that your metabolism slows and it’s harder to burn calories, so your weight can begin to spiral. It also increases your risk of other chronic diseases like diabetes, cardiovascular conditions, and cancer.

How to increase testosterone

The good news is, there are lots of practical ways you can recover your testosterone levels. Avoiding alcohol is the obvious step but other aspects of your diet and lifestyle can play a significant role. Taking multi-vitamins or a Testogen supplement may also help.

Here are a few simple steps you can take to increase your testosterone levels:

  • Strength training – lifting heavy weights stimulates testosterone production, so push yourself as hard as possible in the gym.
  • Healthy fats – eating plenty of healthy fats like avocados, oily fish, seeds, and nuts will ensure that your body has the nutrients it needs to produce and transport hormones.
  • Decent sleep – getting good quality sleep supports your natural hormone cycles and reduces cortisol production (which suppresses testosterone).
  • Vitamin D – the sunshine vitamin supports t-levels, so spend at least 10-15 minutes outdoors every day or take a multi-vitamin.
  • Testosterone boosters – stimulate your body to increase its natural testosterone production and boost levels.

The link between alcohol & testosterone – Summary

Consuming alcohol directly suppresses testosterone production and causes excess weight. It forces your body to switch from fat-burning mode to expelling the poisonous toxins, which can quickly lead to weight gain. It also stimulates hunger hormones that trick you into wanting to eat more and make poor food choices. As you gain weight around your mid-section, enzymes are produced that further decreases your t-levels and make it harder to develop lean muscle.

Reducing your alcohol intake is the best way to directly address this. Lifestyle changes such as getting more sleep and lifting heavy weights can support testosterone production. Adapting dietary habits by eating more healthy fats and taking supplements can also help. By making these tweaks to your daily routine, your body will soon recover its testosterone levels to where they once were. This will enable you to get the most out of your workouts and nutrition, so you achieve the lean, muscular physique you’ve always wanted.

Arambam Boby official Instagram

Another feather in the cap! Again an Indian bodybuilder has won on an international platform. Arambam Boby is no ordinary performer, he is bodybuilder  who has grabbed the world title for the 8th time. Before this, he won this title 7 times in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017. Overall, 7 gold, 1 silver and 1 bronze. Behind all these marvellous victories is an awe-inspiring and  riveting story of this extra-ordinary man.

On December 16, 2018, Boby pulled off the 10th Mr. World competition organized by the World Bodybuilding and Physique Federation (WBPF) in Chiang Mai, Thailand. This is the 8th world title win for Boby.

In the national level, Boby also won Jr. Mr. Manipur in 1995, Champion of the Champions, and Sr. Mr. India in 1998. Let’s learn about his extra-ordinary journey from a modest background to the pinnacle of glory.

“I struggled a lot. My mother didn’t even have money to buy me eggs, which are essential diet for a sportsman. But I didn’t give up. I did labour works at times. I even used to carry bricks and assist mason in building works.” ~ Arambam Boby (Source: indiansportsnews.com)

Background Arambam Boby Official Facebook

Boby was born in Februay 1, 1975. He lost his father Late Mr. Arambam Ibomcha when he was just two years old. His mother Mrs. Arambam Ongbi Dashumati Devi struggled to raise her six children, and worked hard so that her children can go to school.

This story of struggle is similar to many sporting personalities in India, and large number of them often give up because of monetary constraints. However, Boby and his family kept on fighting all the adversities.

Bobby did whatever odd jobs that came his way to earn some money so that he could have adequate diet that is essential for bodybuilding. He also loved other sports such as gymnastics, football, taekwondo and athletics.

In 1993, he saw a silver lining and applied at the Sashastra Seema Bal (SSB) group centre, which was recruiting two athletes. Boby got the job as a constable in the sports quota and worked there for more than 2 years.

During his time at the SSB, Boby used to practice at the Manipur University ground outside the campus. In one of those days, Boby’s sister’s friend saw him practicing and suggested to go to gym since he had a good physique. Boby began going to gym without informing the authorities. He found his goal in bodybuilding, and pushed on.

The Bodybuilding Journey Arambam Boby official Facebook

Boby set off his bodybuilding journey under this first trainer Khoirom Yaskul Singh, who was passionate about the sport. According to Boby, most of the bodybuilding equipment at the gym was made from discarded vehicle parts and bamboo.

Within two months of joining the gym, Boby took part and won the 1995 Northeast Bodybuilding Championship at Jorhat. However, the Railways authorities came to know about his bodybuilding, and he had difficulties in getting leave to participate in the events. However, luck smiled at him again when he got the support of a direct Commandant, who gave him permission to carry on with bodybuilding. Later Boby went on to win the Junior National Championship in 1996, and in the same year, he participated in the Asian Championship and secured 4th position.

Luck smiled at Boby again when he received a call from Southeastern Railways, Kolkata as one of the Railway coaches noticed him. He joined there later as a Junior Clerk in November 1997 and began training under Shambu Chatterjee. In 1998, Boby represented Railways the Senior National championship (70 kg category) and became champion. This win opened up more future avenues for Boby as he won more than 20 titles in the National and Inter-Railways Championships.

After working in Kolkata for 12 years, in 2009 Boby shifted his base to Guwahati, in the Northeast Frontier Railway or NF Railway, and started a fresh journey in bodybuilding. In 2010, Boby took part in the World Bodybuilding Championship in the 75 kg category in Benaras, and won the title. That was the first of his seven medals in the international stage.

After all these achievements, Boby reflects how difficult the journey was as he hardly got any support from the government. It is expensive to participate in the international events, and without any support from authorities, sportspersons in India are not able to pursue their dreams.

Another important aspect Boby highlighted on is diet. Even basic diet did cost him at least Rs. 18,000-20,000 a month for eggs, chicken, and supplements. He could not afford these expenses regularly, and often friends helped him out. Thus, Boby urges the government to constantly support sportspersons in their endeavors.

The Way Forward

There is no dearth of talented sportspersons like Boby in India. However, many dreams of making it big are nipped in the bud due to lack of financial support and infrastructure. Hope the authorities will come up with structured programs to encourage the sporting talents in the country so that they can shine on the global platforms and bring more glories to India.

Aryan Pasha: Flexing Muscles

December 1, 2018 was a memorable day for Aryan Pasha. On that day, he secured the second position in the Men’s Physique (short) category in the bodybuilding event, called ‘Muschlemania India.’

Besides being the runner up, it was even more special for Aryan as he became the first transgender bodybuilding champion in India. He has crossed many a miles strewn with societal barriers to achieve this feat.

In the global sporting events too, transgender athletes do get to participate. Like, in 2015, the International Olympics Committee (IOC) rolled out new guidelines that allow transgender athletes to participate in events even if they had not undergone sex reassignment surgery.

“I just wanted to participate and tell the world that I’m trans. and can give a tough competition. So, I was practicing hard, giving my 100%. ~ Aryan Pasha (Source: Scroll.in)

Background Aryan as ‘Nyla’ with his Father 

Aryan was born as a girl, Nyla, in 1991. However, from the very beginning he did not relate as a girl. Since Class 2, he started going to boy’s school in the boy’s uniform and was more comfortable that way.

Fortunately, for Aryan, his family has supported his choice throughout and never asked him to wear feminine clothes, or asked about his short hair like a boy. When he was 19, Aryan decided to undergo sex transition surgery to be a male. Here too, his family supported his decision.

After surgery, despite the physical discomfort, Aryan felt relieved since he did not have to hide anything or from anyone and embraced his new identity.

Later, a few years down the line, Aryan came out openly as a trans. man and involved with LGBTQ rights organizations with an objective to encourage others like him to accept themselves as they are.

Bodybuilding Journey Aryan Pasha in Musclemania 

Aryan took up bodybuilding a few years back. He was a fitness enthusiast from an early age, played several sports in school, and was a national-level skating champion.

In 2014, he began weight training besides studying law in Mumbai. The main reason for starting the training was to bulk up muscles and transform his lean frame. Gradually, his workout turned into a passion, and that’s when he realized, he could dedicate himself to this field.

Initially, Aryan wanted to take part in the Trans FitCon, an all-trans bodybuilding competition in Atlanta, USA. This is said to be the only event in the world for transgender. However, he could not participate as he did not get a visa. Subsequently, Aryan focused on Musclemania India where he wanted to compete in the men’s category. It is because most sporting events still do not have a separate category for transgender sportspersons.

In 2017, Aryan took a tough decision to quit his job as a lawyer to focus on his training full time. In the following 3 to 4 months, he spent nearly 6 hours a day in the gym. Now, the challenge he faced was unique. Since his body does not produce testosterone naturally, results were not as fast as compared with cisgender (whose gender identity matches since birth) men. So, he had to work extra hard to get the same results.

Taking part in Musclemania posed another challenge for Aryan. Musclemania is a natural bodybuilding event that forbids the use of hormone supplements (including testosterone). Aryan informed the organizers that he is a trans. man and requires doses of testosterone, which is a part of his post-surgery hormone replacement therapy. The organizers allowed him to participate, though asked to skip his last dosage prior to the competition. The rest is history.

The Way Forward Standing Tall – Aryan at Workout 

Aryan has chalked out his plans for the future. He wants to encourage and help more trans. men to join competitive sports, and desires to work collaboratively with the government and other organisations to accelerate the process.

Aryan has already set a blazing example of determination and commitment to overcome all the challenges. In the future, he wishes to introduce a transgender category for a major bodybuilding event in India. We are sure, time is changing for better!
