Is it me or are kids becoming more and more smartassed and whiny.
I’ve been in the bodybuilding game for over 25 years and have seen and talked to all kinds of people, good and bad. I didn’t think it would come to pass that 20 year old college kids who haven’t held a weight in their hands for more than a total of 20 hours think they know everything there is to know about getting big. I guess this is what the age of internet brought us. Free information without having to put in your dues.
Remember when you where in the gym and there was that “big guy” who would sometimes come up to you and give you advice when he saw you bouncing the bar off your chest or some other stupid thing. You would ask him a question and he always had time to answer you even though you had pipecleaner arms and no chest. He saw you were working hard so deserved a good word.
Those were the days of the unpainted rusty weights with dingy rooms and the only machine was a low cable pulley or a leg press.
I enjoy reading the good info here on T-Nation. It’s just that I get somewhat pissed by the know-it-all attitudes of many of the “theoretical or virtual bodybuilders” on this forum.
The world has moved on and so we must accept it…it doesn’t mean we must like it.
Is it just me or has anyone else my age noticed it also?
