Yes, it’s good for them. WTF?

Seriously, I so wish I could go back in time and slap my 15 year old self and tell me to start lifting then.

If I could tell my 15 year old self something it’d be to check out a great site by the name of T-Nation as opposed to listening to the soccer coach who hated lifting.

“I think they need to enjoy their youth and not succumb to this huge pressure to have perfect abs, bulging biceps and a ripped torso. They have enough to worry about with puberty, education.”

They talked about abs twice.

boo ability.

boo hard work.

boo success.

holy shit, I sound like a liberal.

Sounds like it was written by my mom…the general ignorance and people talking out of their asses in that article is almost comical. It’s misinformation like this that makes every protein shipment a big arguement. Fuck that.

No no, that last sentence just made you sound like an idiot

Doesn’t take much to set them off, does it? If I had a nickel for every time I heard that…

lol, wow. why are people worrying about kids wanting to take care of themselves, this is ridiculous. if i could go back to when i was 15-16, i woulda worked out more checked if tnation was around, then put like a couple grand into exxon mobile, apple and youtube.com. then by now id be lean and rich as a muthafuka!
ohh and i also LOL’d @ the gym bunnies thing, as a girls next door fan that sounded strange

A couple of generations ago, we were working our asses off on farms or some other menial labor, which is a lot more physically taxing than lifting weights.

not at all.

Isn’t it quite ironic it’s the BBC reporting against a hobby requiring diligence, planning, and hard work. Under socialist systems those people get the short end.

sandy vagina?

don’t you know, lifting weights is a gateway drug for steroids.

Then they wonder why we have a non exsistant weightlifting team in the UK, after-all trying to emulate olympians is also dangerous according to the BBC

Protein shakes and supplements are a popular choice for boys wanting to boost their performance in the gym, and improve the definition and strength of their muscles.

Sports dietician Dr Sarah Schenker warns they should be taken with care.

"Over-consumption can lead to long-term health problems.

You better watch out guys! Those protein shakes are killing us!

Beckham had the body that teenagers wanted - athletic and slim and tramp stamped

Daniel Craig isn’t even that big

The general population gets so worried when protein is in the form of powder instead of chicken. Retards.

Guy at work told me I was cheating because I used a powder. I asked what the difference was between protein in powdered form and that consumed via meat. He said it “wasn’t the same thing” and “why can’t I just eat meat then”.

mjc said it quite succinctly. Retards.

You should have said, “Well why don’t you go cook me steak then, bitch”.

Moot point, seeing as the diet of today’s youth sucks balls whether they lift or not.

And it’s not as if the older generations of regular people are doing any better…

And kids losing their innocence due to… Lifting weights?

Uh-huh.

Yeah he’s a pretty beefy dude alright.

I love how anytime kids try to excel at something they are discouraged at every turn by “the experts”. Wouldn’t want anything but mediocrity, would we? They might hurt the fat kids’ feelings by being in good physical condition, what about the poor fat kids? It’s not their fault they eat twinkies all day. Those kids who are lifting must be juicing, which is going to kill them within 4 years, they’re losing their innocence to weights, they have fatphobia.

Ok I’m done. Now that my blood pressure has doubled.
