If your bank account is emptied out, you are broke.
If you smell bad, you stink.
If you bro-train only upper body, you are a C.H.A.R.M.
And like Arnold Schwarzenegger once said if it jiggles, it is FAT!
In the fitness game, people try to make themselves feel good and create a false appearance of themselves.
Trainers and trainees use photoshop and heavy filters when posting pictures on social media. They want to make themselves look like a superhero.
Women buy “waist trainers” to make their waists appear smaller. They want to give off the appearance of a small, wasp waist and large, curvy hips.
And since the beginning of the fitness men have purchased “miracle” supplements to help them build extreme levels of muscle mass in a very short amount of time.
All the above scenarios are nothing but a farce. Absolute dango.
If you are out of shape, you are out of shape!
Editing pictures online will not save you. I have run into some folks in person who I had previously only seen them through pictures of them online.
The in-person and online version of the person couldn’t be more different!
Women let me tell you that a “waist trainer” that holds in, compresses, and forces your gut and body fat to appear tight and lean is not the answer. This is deception at its finest.
You may be able to get that man to notice you initially but what happens when you are revealed as a fraud?
What happens when the clothes come off?
What happens when it is revealed that you do not have the lean size 25 waist that you are claiming to have? If he was me he would be out with the quickness!
Not so much because of how you look but more because of the deception. We all have physical flaws. Character flaws are much more destructive.
The Phit Vixens of the game currently use these “waist trainers” to sell programs and products that are not effective at all in attaining that extreme wasp waist look. But like the Joker said, “All they care about is money.”
Certain celebrities, Instagram “models”, and delusional women do this too to make it appear as if they actually train hard. When you see this you have to immediately know that it is pure fake hustle.
I have never seen Angela Bassett wear one. I have never seen Jada Pinkett Smith wear one. I also have never seen Serena Williams wear one.
These women all look fantastic and you know why? They train the right way!
What happened to you training hard and eating correctly to lower your body fat levels and build your body?
Thinking practically is it really a good idea to compress your organs to garner “likes” and attention on social media? Get that stuff outta here!
Men we have fallen for the supplement trick in muscle magazines since we hit puberty. I’ve done it, you’ve done it, and every male you know has done it.
In our teens and early twenties, we think we are men but we are not.
Most of us are weak, insecure, or still looking for ways to try to impress someone instead of elevating our own lives. We buy Supplement X in hopes of appearing like the bodybuilder who is advertising it.
The bodybuilder in the advertisement is surrounded by paid women and as young men, we think he is the perfect man.
As young men, we believe that because when we look like the bodybuilder, women will chase us and we will be the hero.
Do we ever end up looking like the bodybuilder in the advertisement? NO.
Do we gain an extreme amount of muscle mass in 4-8 weeks? NO.
Do we waste our money on unproven supplements? YES.
In life, the best way to handle something is to address it.
If you are broke, then make more money and make better decisions with your money.
If you stink, then take a shower and improve your hygiene.
If you are a C.H.A.R.M and have legs that resemble pipe cleaners, then begin to train your legs 2x-3x per week to bring them up to the level of your upper body.
Like Arnold said, “If it jiggles, it is fat.” Smokescreens won’t save you.
I’ll holla at you next time.
