Actually I agree with the OP. Bodybuilding as we know it in the Mr. Olympia and similar competitions is a farce. Why? Because natural bodybuilders can’t compete, they can’t even come close to those sizes. It’s so bad, that body building competitions only every really enforced it for one year, then quickly moved to a policy of stating banned substances, then wink wink, not enforce it. What you see on TV and magazines of body builders are all fake with steroids. The muscle is literally very real, but the person is fake for using it.
I totally understand what kind of job you had. I work at a Wally World distribution center. Started in shipping, loading about 3 to 4 full semi’s a day. Didn’t know how much weight I loaded. Then switched to non conveyable. When in dog food, I’d stack about 60k/lbs in 12 hours. That was MUCH easier than shipping. My first year, I struggled. Then I talked to my bro-in-law, who is a personal trainer, found and I started to do good. I was taking creatine and C4 prior to work, and took an Animal Pak with UniLiver every break, while eating protien every 3-4 hours. This brought me to Muscle for Life and The Books. I’m in maintenance department now, and are about to join a gym. I’ve been wanting to get the Legion multi’s and switch to Legion supplements. I’m about done reading BLS, and are gonna start the year one challenge. I’ve aready bought BBLS and Shredded Chef. I get excited every time I think about my goals.
