Many people look up to the big names in bodybuilding and treat them as extraterrestrial beings. While it’s fine to learn from somebody who’s excelled in a specific field, it’s not fine to idolize that person.
Most men wrongfully put all their faith and admiration in something “fleshy” part of the human world (e.g., a football team, a singer). Have you ever wondered why so many teenage girls fall for music groups like the Backstreet Boys and Nsync? The men in those bands make the girls feel secure, loved and protected from the outside world. Meanwhile, bodybuilding has been the savior of bullied boys for a long time.
I am almost sorry to inform you, but this method of hacking life won’t work. When you put your faith in men, you will be disappointed sooner or later.
It all started with Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Undoubtedly, Arnold Schwarzenegger is the most admired bodybuilder. He conquered the universe thanks to his big muscles, charisma, and hunger for glory. There are tons of delusional bodybuilding fans willing to sacrifice everything to be like Arnold or the other bodybuilding fellas from his time. Those naive souls copy Arnold’s training regimen and eating while also applying his “Six Rules Of Success” only to end up frustrated and torn apart by self-hatred.

The video below is an excerpt from the documentary Bigger, Faster, Stronger. The older guy in the clip proves how delusional people are. He has dedicated his whole being to becoming some sort of muscle celebrity. He is too ignorant and unaware to see that his dream is never going to become a reality, for it has no fundamentals to step on.
People read about the legends and admire them while completely neglecting the development of their own personality. At the end, your idols become richer and richer whereas you become poorer and poorer because you have given all your resources to them.
The wise thing to do is learn from those who have the knowledge but never put your faith in a man let alone a celebrity. At the end of the day, you will always be left disappointed and used by the dirty game. The joke, however, would be on you. All the signs were there since the very beginning, but you decided to ignore them.
Bodybuilding fans are the worst, they are the embodiment of the worst preconceived ideas about bodybuilders. I would say if you are a homophobe and a bodybuilding fan you are in the wrong place, bodybuilding is inherently a homoerotic activity so like it as homoerotic as it is or find another sport to like.
