Generation Tank Top: Gym Selfies, Posing and Village Muscles

| June 29, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

I went to the gym before most people finish slavery, excuse me, work. The barbell den was empty but not for long. At six o’clock a horde of tank top samurais entered the premises. One of them was a metrosexual captain upper body – shaved, big arms, skinny legs, hysterical tattoos, a funny haircut. He […]

Did Steroids Completely Replace Hard Work In The Gym?

| June 28, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

I’ve had many breaks from training due to low motivation. The first major episode took place when I got sick of the squat or die mentality installed deep into my brain. However, a few months passed and the accumulation of barbell nostalgia made me want to train again. Yet when I set my foot on […]

Instagram’s Fitness Motivation Is Playing Games With Your Mind

| June 27, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Instagram’s fitness motivation department has been steadily gaining serious market share. The enormous amount of Photoshopped butts, biceps, abs, breasts and other body parts floating in the cyberspace prove this every day. It’s hard to look for something training related online without stumbling upon a couple of “how bad do you want it” type of […]

Police Propaganda In Modern TV Shows

| by Truth Seeker |

A long time ago I watched an episode of the TV series The Mentalist. There was a short dialogue between an FBI agent and a potential witness of a crime that got my attention. Here it is: Agent Kimball Cho, FBI: I understand you were working security here last night. You mind answering a few […]

Are Modern Gymnasts Using Steroids To Build Muscle and Strength

| June 26, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Without steroids, sports like powerlifting, bodybuilding and Olympic weightlifting won’t be what they are today. If the muscle elixirs are cut from the equation, the records will drop to incredibly low levels. I don’t care what they say about genetics, it’s the truth. If the so-called natural bodybuilders today were really natural, they could easily […]

This story took place a long time ago when I was still a naive rookie eager to discover the mystery of muscle construction. Summertime was just beginning, and I had a 2-month break from school ahead of me. Sounds good, but it wasn’t. I was at that age when the summer is more of a […]

Proper Squat Technique? Overthinking Bozos Complicate Everything

| June 24, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Today was no different. I started the computer and launched YouTube only to see another permabulker suffering from an inflated ego trying to convince me that squatting is as complex as a heart transplant. “You have to keep your back as tight as possible when you squat,” said Mr. PermaBulk. Thanks, man. Nice tip. Until […]

BUSTED: My Mom Thought That My Protein Powders Were Steroids

| June 23, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

The headache was strong and persistent. There was a little voice inside of me constantly repeating the phrase “Disregard all. Acquire muscles”. I tried to make it go away, but it kept on coming like a boomerang. This time it was serious. You can postpone things only so much. Eventually, the denial and rejections accumulate […]

Why Bodybuilders and Powerlifters Are NOT Making Big Money

| June 22, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

To make money you need a crowd, preferably a big and dumb one. If that’s not covered, the bank manager will not be smiling. Have you seen the people who do magic tricks and dance on the street? Their business plan is simple – higher traffic = more potential revenue. The same is true for […]

Interview With The Part Of Me Wanting Bigger Muscles

| June 19, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

This is an interview with a part of me that wanted to get bigger muscles. The interviewer is another part of me that works as a part-time shrink. Why do you want big muscles? Don’t know. I mean I know, but these days don’t know is a synonym for I don’t want to tell you, […]
