I Don't Want To Bulk


Not really, just wanted to get your attention! I want to get HUGE!

Anyhow, I'm sure you've all been there: someone notices that you are well-built, or they see you pounding a shake, and they ask for workout advice. And then they hit you with it: "I don't want to bulk up and look like a no-neck meathead. I just want ripped abs." Or something equally stupid.

So, I'm curious if any of you have any good responses to give these idiots...

All I can think of is "Shut the hell up and get out of my face."


i just tell that they better now click their fingers otherwise a puff of smoke will appear and then they will be HUGE, all in a few seconds....

i calm down and inform them that it doesnt happen over night and that, by looking in a mirror, they can see what progress they are making..its not as if they have a fkn bloindfold over their head for 4 years and then take it off and not notice the extra 40 lbs on them...

ppl who say this are just uneducated in lifting.


I don't usually get that because I am a no neck meathead. They would probably avoid that particular conversation.


I normally just fling my dung at them, like a true Alpha Male!! :smiley:



Tell them not to drink anything for 3 days and they'll get ripped abs.

Its a killer routine if you know what I mean....


I usually just turn the volume up on my iPod and walk away from them. Fools don't deserve anymore consideration than gum you'd scrap off your shoe.


I eat them.

That's how I bulk, eating idiots.

I'm normally a very full man.


Just tell them "well, this no neck meathead is gonna kick your ass!!"


I do the same, except I eat the "emo" boys. Problem is, there ain't much meat on them bones.
