The Aesthetic YOLO Generation is Hiding Behind a Muscle Shield

| April 28, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

The fact that your life is ending one moment at a time is one of the most powerful engines in existence. It beats almost everything and can motivate people to get into a wide range of unusual adventures. Everybody has to deal with the little voice that keeps on saying: “Hurry up! Hurry up!” One of the […]

Don’t Let The Mainstream Bodybuilding Media in Your Head The media could cause cancer and prevent you from thinking clearly.

| April 22, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

A few days ago I wrote a comment on Facebook in which I stated that I still visit mainstream bodybuilding sites such as T-Nation, and A reader asked why am I going to those sites despite knowing that most of the information is backed by steroid users and therefore highly unrealistic. I visit those sites for […]

Don’t Wait For The Sunny Days. Embrace The Rain.

| April 11, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

The first 4 days of this week were windy, rainy and cold for the beginning of April. Every day I would go out, feel the cold and complain to myself how tired I am from the long winter. “Where’s my Sun,” I would say to myself like nature cares about my wishes. This left me […]

How Strong Are Strength Athletes, Really? Taken out of their anabolic environment, muscle monsters become weaklings.

| March 29, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

There are two main reasons why people start lifting weights – to improve their physique and to hack life by joining the strength forces. Like little kids, we often look up to the muscle monsters lifting heavy barbells. We identify them as Gods among men and see a savior in their actions and accomplishments. Little by little, […]

Gymnastic Training and Hypertrophy: Bodyweight Is Not Always the Best

| February 24, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

When I was a teenager, two male gymnasts used to live in my building, and I had the opportunity to follow their progress indirectly. At first, I didn’t know that they were gymnasts. Both of them were pricks, and we didn’t talk much. One of them lived next door and gave us cockroaches because his […]

The Corrupt Beginning of The Muscle Industry and Bodybuilding From enthusiasm to lies, deception and corporate fascism

| January 25, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Many indicate the late 1890s as the beginning of bodybuilding since this was the time when Eugen Sandow started his muscle flexing shows. I am not going to focus on that era exclusively, but a small historical flashback is necessary to understand the modern state of the industry. Eugen Sandow, born Friedrich Wilhelm Müller, was a […]

Rumor has it that Facebook and Twitter had to upgrade their servers just to store all the images of fitness models flooding the online realm. You cannot eat cookies while checking your news feed anymore. Wherever you go there is an image of someone with a perfect body that makes you drop the biscuit. It […]

“Building muscle mass fast” – Myth Or Reality?

| January 9, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

People want to get things fast. The sooner, the better. There is no time to wait. Give it to me yesterday, please. As expected, muscle construction does not make an exception. Many programs promise fast results because that’s one of the best ways to grab people’s attention. Ironically, our impatience is also why we never […]

Why am I fat? Because you have fallen into the trap of modern society.

| January 8, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

I said it many times: this world is cursed. It’s a prison planet whose rulers want to steal your energy. People have become bio-robots deprived of critical thinking and originality. We have been degraded to morons who love their servitude and live to serve. We are lost in marketing. Everyone’s priority is to make money […]

The text that’s about to follow is going to cause a stream of hate. You will hate me so much that you may even consider breaking the computer monitor. Since I don’t really care about the future of your monitor, I will continue to write. Let’s get straight to the point. You want to have […]

Aziz Shavershian, better known as Zyzz, is a modern day legend of the muscle world. His fitness journey left a deep trace in the hearts of many “brahs” trying to make sense of this world by building thick muscle fibers.

Can Hard Physical Labor Build Huge Muscles?

| December 31, 2014 by Truth Seeker |

Shortly after joining the world of muscle construction, many people develop a muscle evaluation OCD. We start judging the physical development of the people we meet. Most of the victims that go under the scanner do not even lift, but we evaluate their muscles regardless. Thoughts such as: “The delivery guy has nice arms but weak calves.”, “Good arms […]
