Fuck is that Paul Dillett?!?! ….before social media was a crazy time! …I don’t even know how to explain it… it’s like they weren’t even human beings lol! … she would point out Van Damme or some other actor and I wouldn’t care … hell John F Kennedy JR and daryl hanna were seated next to us outside at “ the Firehouse “ and I went inside to talk to Cormier (was very nice to both of us) …she couldn’t believe it lol! .., looking back lol maybe that was a bit much …. But these guys had a “ mystique” to them …. Hard to explain …it was a Culture! The clothes we wore/ the Flat Tops we rocked / Fanny packs and Otomix….to the “ Hot Skins” It identified us as “ bodybuilders!” … …not everyone could be one! …it was an identity …. The complete opposite of the “ gym shark “ film your every workout …. Pussification that it has become!

      And god forbid they ever legitimately get caught out for altering photos of their physiques.

      Seen a few careers tank overnight from that. It carries with a big risk to be completely humiliated & pretty much laughed out of the industry, something that they will long term ONLY be remembered for.

          All true BUT, like any good scam, the snake oil profits are in their pocket by the time they get called out.

          I trust you remember the Joey Swole of Shredz supps , photo shop/filter hoax.
          I got blasted for posting doubts of his ripped, epic "on line" pics.

          Before that, I was always the skunk at the party when it came to promoting "on line photo" contests as legit.
          I'm sure you remember how the "on line photo " contests gained popularity .
          LOL, I was called a "hater" simply for pointing out the obvious flaw in this form of contest.

          Countless posters accused me of being old and out of touch when I posted that" traditional in-person" contests were the only legit format.

            Younger gym rats are amazed and skeptical when I talk about npc contests that were 100% bodybuilding.

              IG is a double-edged sword, it is exciting to see the pres of some athletes, but the tricks are out of control and there is always an excuse up their sleeve to justify their lack of condition.

              Really, since I don't have IG, I don't expect anything from anyone, although that prevents me from participating more actively in the hype

                  Can’t take photoshopped up condition with you onstage though!

                  That shit exposes you every time. EVERY time.

                  I think it’s pretty much a mental illness all the extreme filters & altering photos.

                  They’re literally putting out lies, like people on dating sites bullshitting to the max on their profiles.

                  Never understood why people are so afraid or ashamed to just be themselves and be completely honest about that? Lying, deceiving about yourself is so draining too. What’s the point?

                      very true and i think it's fine to show ur update one month out, but that last month, stay covered up til the day of the show. cause u never know who's watchin' u or who may see u, b4 show day.

                            I post non filtered clients right before the show because I know other trainers will be stalking my competitors for shows, I want them to get worried and try some stupid shit, works 60% of the time it works all the time

                              Giles is right. The filters and the 'manipulation' is a problem.
