Yeah thats why I’m not even a fan of it anymore. I respect the effort and dedication it takes. But its really a genetics pissing contest, but maybe im only saying that because my chest is very slightly concave.
Social media has definitely soured alot of interest in it. I lift because it makes me feel good and any of the drugs I take is because it makes me feel good. Not going to sugarcoat it or Bs anybody about it.
Too many people get their heads wrapped into it who will never succeed. And I think social media really is to blame for alot of this. People with messed up body images who get fueled and egged on by all the instagram pros and judges… And as far as Mr.Olympia goes. Why does any sane person want to walk around carrying what Ronnie Coleman had? I love the dude and immensely respect him.
But fuck. Just looking at him makes my chest hurt. I cant imagine eating as much as he did and taking all of what he did. And to go through with all of that and to come in 10th or something? If the mass and diet didn’t give me a heart attack. My emotional ass on that many drugs would’ve dropped right there.
Respect to those who go through with it because thats an insane amount of effort and dedication. But you’ve literally gotta be gods gift to the planet to succeed there (genetics) and the problem is… everyone thinks they’re gods gift to this planet.
Social Media has a way of encouraging and fostering that belief.
