Ive used the Misc for over 2 years but lately I’ve seen just how toxic and brutally “honest” everyone can be and it makes me wonder if it’s even being around that shit. Some guy posted a thread about delts and traps and I humbly posted some pics of me from two years ago when I was weak and skinny and now 15lbs heavier and \stronger than i was back then and man a couple of them said shit like “Tempted to neg” and “you still look the same lol” and people pointed out and mocked how one of the people I follow is Alpha Destiny and basically said shit like “fat manlet that doesnt know what he’s saying” etc
Idk it made me think if being around that forum is still even worth it. I mean im only 175 lbs (79kg) now and I have gotten stronger in the past 6 months following a legit and solid program and although I look really nothing special I have made a lot fo growth and progress physically and inwardly in the past two years and especially 6 months. To have a bunch of aesthetic chest brahs just tear you down like that even after you know you still have some ways to go. At elast here the majority of people that post are mature and sure joke but really dont bring others down.
Like I see T Nation as a house of a lot of mature and strong dudes who just love the gym and gladly bring anyone in and BB.com as a commercial gym with a lot of douchebags in stringers and snapbacks hogging the dumbbell rack in packs of 5 . Not to mention T Nation seems a lot more scientific and unorthodox when it comes to it’s articles compared to BB dot com. idk I guess it’s time to me to see if I have a home in The Nation haha
