You have to wonder about some cities’ taste in artistry.
This is exactly what I look like during a cycle when someone in pharma says you are not eating enough.
I don’t know why it won’t post the pic
It was then that the two became one …
I keep seeing posts on IG that boil down to dudes claiming their 225lb bench 1RM is some kind of impressive feat.
And that’s how you get an IG/TikTok army of AAS abusing and admittedly lean midgets*
*Disclaimer: not actual people with dwarfism, but regular short people in general. I’m 6’5 and can call anyone shorter than me that bwa-ha-ha
Again I quote Dave Tate
“The world does not need more 160 lb dudes with abs”.
When did the bar for bench performance get set so low? Most of the bigger dudes at my high school had benches of at least 275.
Edit: this was 15 years ago, so in general people must be getting weaker.
I’ll get there one day… Noting I’m only 68kgs (circa 150 pounds in imperial measures)
It’s an good personal accomplishment for sure and at your weight you are a small guy in my opinion so it means a little more.
However, it is not impressive by overall strength/powerlifting numbers.
Social media. Whether you’re an 18 year old trying to score or a fitness influencer, you have to produce regular content on IG shirtless.
Hence popularity of gimmicky routines and quasi Crossfit training.
Muscle ups for reps and pistol squats on an upright DB look good on TikTok. Six plates does not.
So the social.media game is rigged in favor of 160lb short guys with abs.
