I’ve had people tell me those fitness models to the right of the website are disgusting. They want more “womanly” women, whatever that means. I just ignore them because I honestly don’t give a damn what other people think. I’ve had girls tell me that they think guys that are “too big” are disgusting. Do I listen? Hell no.
Are you serious? maybe you should blow up the pictures. I consider my self liking all those typical magazine women types --jessica biel, alba, and simpson, and I think the ones on the side of this site are gorgous. I can understand if they don’t think women should be too big, but I just don’t get how you would view the fitness model pictures as disgusting.
At this point, I am convinced most people make negative comments because they think that is what they are supposed to do or else something is wrong with them. Our current culture has basically vilified big muscles on all levels. That is one reason most of these newbies respond as if they are in fear of getting “too big”.
I am looking at T-Nation and all my friends are like ewww you want to look like that. I said sure. Why not. They work hard and have dedication to something and it shows in there bodies.
Then all I hear is steroid this and hgh that and shrinking your dick. Blah blah blah
I just laugh and brush them off.
Secretly, I want to be like the classic 70’s 210-220 body builder. I think that body would look perfect on me. Half way there and not looking back.
Fuck them and there retarded media fed being a body builder is bad bullshit. My life, my rules![/quote]
Ya for right now my goal would be “relatively” light, like 5’10" 215 at a solid lean base, but at the same time I used to think I’d stop when I hit 200 and I think I’m more hungry to grow than ever. I actually have a lot of people supporting me though so I can’t really comment on that, they don’t want to get as big as I do but they’ve come with me to watch shows and watch videos and think it’s awesome for me to try and get big.
As for random people I see, I guess I’m just not large enough to illicit responses like some here yet, although I get some crazy looks in the gym when I have the gall to do things such as ghetto T-Bar rows(v-handle) and deadlifts, how dare I! I’ve had some fun comments at the grocery store checkout too.
