I don’t know about you, but I’m finding the whole bodybuilding industry thing a little too much at the moment.
In my humble opinion, the social media thing is not doing the average weights’ guy and girl a fat lot of good.
Well – everyone seems to be an expert, everyone seems to do one event and is suddenly a star in their own making.
So therefore the average trainer is sucked in by this and thinks that what these people do is right.
They think because they have a lot of followers they must know what they are doing.
Don’t be misled.
You never seem to see the horror stories on the net of the people who get fucked up by the ‘coach’.
I do – being in the industry as long as I have, there is still the old way of getting to know things, yes – talking.
Yes there are some lovely people out there, caring people who are actually helping people reach their goals.
So be careful who you choose to follow and take advice from.
At this point you’re probably thinking what a sour old twat.
I would agree with you, I am.
Guess I’m just finding it hard to come to terms with what’s happening to the basics of training and health.
I have said for years – you will not beat Mother Nature.
But so many try to at the expense of theirs or others’ health.
Diets that would not sustain a mouse – CV night and day, drugs, fat burners – God I could go on.
What’s happened to the bodybuilder that was called a health nut back in the day?
Could most people that weight train or compete be called healthy these days?
Look, yes I’m a dyed in the wool old school guy that’s a bit sick of the shit what’s out there.
I know if I don’t like it I should not look, and to be honest I don’t. But being in the business even a little you get caught at the edges.
So you see it… the crap.
I have to be on Facebook and the other media as how else can I get to people of like mind as me.
I try not to let it bother me and ‘get a life’ then I feel bad for not trying to give the average guy a guiding light, someone like them who just needs real life stuff ya know.
I have been trying for years to spread the word of health and the basics of all this, and if I say so myself, I’ve not done bad. But I need to step up my game and drive a wedge – no matter how small – into the monster.
Many will not like what I have to say on this site and that’s fine. I am writing for those people that feel the same way. Giving them a place to read and be grounded when the stuff out there gets too much.
I want to write so people understand the basics of health, training and nutrition, like it use to be in the old days.
I have trained all my life – I exercised at 10 years old and even then understood if I was to do this training thing it was for life and health always till the day I pop off.
Sure I won shows – big wow – I’m just a guy like you who wants to enjoy training for as long as I can.
I have always been average – I just was good at working my average to as far as I could. Always hand in hand with what Mother Nature give me.
Many of you will never compete – have no intention at all, your goal is to fit training and health into your life, not life into training.
That’s the man I want to help and the guy and girl that may want to step on stage but not at the expense of their health.
That’s my like minded reader.
That’s who I do this for.
Real life – family guy with normal responsibilities, not the fake on line life that many think is real.
So my goal is to give you just the basics. Real stuff that works, good basic nutrition and basic hard training.
It may get repetitive – because there really is nothing new.
It will always come down to the basics in the end.
Thank you for letting me rant.
Love to you all
