Those kind of muscles don't make any sense. At most sports you mostly use your leg muscles. This guy is just a showoff.

It's not like he was born with those muscles. He probably had to train/maintain a diet for months, if not years to get that ripped. If you worked extremely hard for something, you deserve to show it off a little. Also, having high muscle percentage is healthy. Bruce Lee had extremely low body fat, but he replaced that fat with muscle, which is perfectly fine.

some people work out to look attractive. Do you only wear functional clothes and hairstyles too?
User avatar #110 to #70 - jiggerbits (08/04/2013) [-]
So, by that logic he should only be doing leg workouts? Sounds smart dude. But, that would be interesting though to see the guy who only likes to do squats and lunges at the gym as opposed to the guy who always does arms and chest.

Because nobody lifts weights for any reason other than sports, right?
#75 to #70 - anon (08/04/2013) [-]
Because bodybuilding isn't a sport. Also, not everyone lifts for sports.

Bodybuilding isn't a sport, it's a Miss My-nuts-just-dropped-off-from-exessive-use-of-steroids contest.

It's grown men showing off how much steroids they've used. They're just ruining their bodies out of sheer vanity. And even if some of them have legitimately worked to get that shape, they've still ruined their bodies as the kind of muscle tissue they've built up is useless and unhealthy.

I'm not a fan of roids, but it still takes ridiculous amounts of work to build a body like that. Steroids don't make you huge while you sit on the couch. You still have to put the time and effort in.

You are a very poor troll.

Go away.
User avatar #175 to #148 - TheMather ONLINE (08/04/2013) [-]
Not trolling. Wish what I said wasn't true, but they really are just destroying their bodies in the name of vanity, calling it a sport is a disgrace to all sports.
User avatar #202 to #175 - lazypaul (08/04/2013) [-]
Well now you no longer need to wish what your saying is true, because it isn't.
User avatar #233 to #202 - TheMather ONLINE (08/04/2013) [-]
It is. The kind of muscles that bodybuilders have offer only momentary exertion and puts an incredible strain on the rest of the body, particularly the heart and skeleton.
Healthy muscles don't look like a bunch of silicone implants, they're just plain large.

Strongmen, they do it right. They take care of their health and build tissue that has actual utility.
Bodybuilders just ruin their health so they can show their body on stage, being the male equivalent of the near stick figure models.

What makes you think you know anything about it? Do you have sources or are you just assuming all this?
User avatar #387 to #382 - TheMather ONLINE (08/05/2013) [-]
I have a decent understanding of human physiology, that's how I can say that. Neither the skeleton or heart are made to be capable of sustaining such amounts of active mass. Those muscles burn through insane amounts of oxygen meaning the heart has to work all the harder to prove sufficient blood-flow, and the strain on the skeleton isn't just from being overweight, but also because the amount of torque applied to it when they flex or during the anaerobic exercises needed to build those muscles is detrimental to the cartilage in the joints.

Holy **** . Stop trolling.

You are a disgrace to humanity for spouting such non sense.
Powerlifters are most of the time equally as muscular as bodybuilders. Do you know what is the difference? Well, obviously, you would not, but sane people, who do this as a sport do. The only difference is bodyfat percentages and training style.

Now go **** off you jealous mad cunt.
User avatar #397 to #393 - TheMather ONLINE (08/05/2013) [-]
Strongmen and powerlifters aren't the same. Powerlifters are as unhealthy as bodybuilders; they do an anaerobic exercise that risks breaking bones with sheer ftorque and once they're done with just one rep they've torn so much muscle tissue that it takes days before they can repeat it.

Strongmen carry out rigorous and heavy aerobic exercises to display both sheer strength and stamina. When they're done, they're just tired, not broken, and after a rest they can continue onto the next exercise.

And let me tell you this, I'm not biased here, I hate all organized sports equally. I just find strongmen worthy of my respect.

Strongmen are cardiofags who can not do anything else than bodyweight dick sucking and running.

Powerlifters and bodybuilders are where it is at.

You suffer from big complexes you skinny ass miscarriage.

You're just spouting more un-sourced ******** . Do you actually have any evidence or reason to believe being muscular is bad for you? Yes or no?
User avatar #400 to #390 - TheMather ONLINE (08/05/2013) [-]
Being muscular is not bad. In fact the right kind of muscle can be invaluable. The kind of muscle I'm talking about is of course the kind strongmen emphasize. Because a strongman's muscles aren't just not harmful to the body, they're ideal for survival and protection.
User avatar #401 to #400 - lazypaul (08/05/2013) [-]
You've still not answered my question. Do you have any evidence to suggest that bodybuilding is bad for you?

Also, I'm sure strongmen are less healthy than bodybuilders considering most of them are obese.
User avatar #402 to #401 - TheMather ONLINE (08/05/2013) [-]
Google's being uncooperative in letting me find some quotable material, so let's just see what the bodybuilders themselves have to say on the matter. forum.bodybuilding.com/showthread.php?t=152927551&page=1

And no, strongmen aren't obese, that's just what muscle tissue looks like in its raw form, that's what all strong people used to look like until people started valuing vanity over practicality.
User avatar #403 to #402 - lazypaul (08/05/2013) [-]
'That's just what muscle looks like in its raw form'

That may be the most retarded thing I have ever read. Are you actually hearing yourself? Why do you continue to make **** up?
#404 to #403 - TheMather ONLINE (08/05/2013) [-]
I'm serious. That's what muscle looks like when it's not done with looks in mind.

For a clear example, does the man in the pic look like he's obese just because he's big without every single muscle bundle being pronounced?
User avatar #283 to #233 - slugnugget (08/04/2013) [-]
Strong men dont win their contest by looking the best.

Its true in the biggest leagues their isnt one guy whos not on roids.

But you're acting like taking steroids will suddenly transform your body into that shape.

User avatar #392 to #283 - TheMather ONLINE (08/05/2013) [-]
Bodybuilders don't win by looking the best either, they win by best showcasing their muscle-structure.

And I'm not saying steroids do all the work, but it's like drugging the other team's defense and bribing the judge in any real sport, it reduces the effort needed and lets you cut some corners to achieve the same results and it's evidence of a complete lack of balls and sportsmanship.
