Will Eating Pizza Help You Build Sickening Muscle Mass?

| July 19, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

A long time ago, during my bulking days, I read a disinformation article entitled “Bodybuilding Has Lied To You”. The main point was that you need an incredible amount of calories to get big “bodybuilding” muscles, and therefore junk food is your friend…sometimes. Naturally, this notion turned out to be false, although many people continue to believe in […]

Biceps Size – A Modern Way To Measure Your Manhood In Public

| July 15, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

This story took place during my bulking era. I knew that it was going to be one of those days when everything is against your comfort, but I was yet to meet the full level of crazy coming my way. At the time, I was doing the poor man’s version of GOMAD, or in simpler […]

Natural Bodybuilding: Dedication Or Mental Illness?

| July 14, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

This is another story about a co-worker of mine. The guy was a metrosexual semi-delusional natural bodybuilder born with the wild spirit of a skirt chaser. Thanks to him I had an opportunity to gather insight into the brain mechanisms of those who lift primarily to increase their reproduction skills. He was always serving religiously […]

What I Learned From Working With a CrossFit Mental Case Bitch

| July 13, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Two years ago, I had the displeasure of working with an advanced level CrossFit bitch. The experience taught me a lot about both – bitches and CrossFit. First, what’s a CrossFit bitch? A CrossFit bitch is a female specimen sharing all characteristics of a total bitch while also doing CrossFit training multiple times a week. […]

Bodybuilding Fits Well Into The World Of Consumerism and Materialism

| July 10, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

When people discuss the current Mr. Olympia, Phil Heath, I don’t think about training, muscles or aesthetics. All that comes to my mind are his juvenile posts on Instagram praising Gucci garbage and custom sneakers made for clowns. This thinking often leads me to a critical question – how does bodybuilding fit into the modern […]

Is Roid Rage Real? A Steroid User Tried To Steal My Sandwich

| July 8, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

Have you ever heard of planned self-damage? It’s simple – instead of lying to yourself that you will eat clean forever, you plan your fails carefully to avoid a more severe crisis. The following story happened precisely because of this principle. It was early evening. The rest of the slaves were also happy that the […]

Metrosexual Meatheads? How Does Our Society See Bodybuilders?

| July 3, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

On my way to the bus station I passed by a toilet shop with a huge window and did what many victims of the lifting game do – I started scanning my reflection for abnormal muscle development. I had to keep the scan short because people working in the store started looking at me as […]

Police Propaganda In Modern TV Shows

| June 27, 2015 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 […]

ANABOLIC WINDOW: NO PROTEIN, NO GAINS?

| June 25, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

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 […]

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 […]

Big Biceps and Their Psychological Effects On People Flex for me, baby!

| May 7, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

The biceps hysteria is a very interesting phenomenon that could tell us volumes about the modern society. It all started many years ago in the early days of muscle branding when the photos were still black and white, and the special effects were limited to lighting, angles, and posing. Then Arnold took it to the next level with […]

Stories From The Gym: The First Time I Saw a Real Steroid User

| April 8, 2015 by Truth Seeker |

At the time of this story, I was a naive skinny boy serving a sentence in a dirty basement gym. My training facility was a trash bin, but it gave me the chance to witness some rather grotesque events that shaped my lifting ideology. This was the place where I saw an obvious steroid user for the first […]
