Fitness Industry Scams

The BIGGEST SCAM in the fitness industry

"Here is a fun fact that you probably didn’t know: MuscleMag, IronMan, Flex, Muscular Development, Muscle & Fitness, and the rest of the mainstream bodybuilding magazines are owned by supplement companies and are used simply as mouthpieces for their products."

Who said that?

I believe it though.

^ I've adjusted the source link.

("The primary goal of these magazines is to sell supplements for the companies controlling them")

PT James Smith slams ‘dishonest’ fitness influencers

"Controversial personal trainer James Smith has slammed “deceitful” fitness influencers who surgically modify their bodies then profit by manipulating people on social media."

"But what about the success stories of these plans that are plastered all over social media?

Just like traditional “before and after” examples, Smith said these, too, are manipulated.

“The fitness industry is run by people marketing their hyper responders,” he said."

Once a man understands the fitness industry, he understands the world.

"Joe Weider was a propagandist, a phoney, a con man, a cheat, a mail fraud artist, an enabler of sports drug culture, a fast shuffler, a four-flusher, a user of people, a bait and switcher, a low common-denominator hustler, a chiseler, a weasel, an exploiter, a hack and a second rate pornographer. Yes, he was a great influence on what the iron game is today..."

Bodybuilding is a scam and why it matters

"Don’t fall for the mass monster steroid fallacy, that steroid users look like Phil Heath or Kai Greene, not like Jeff Seid. This is a delusion built upon YouTube videos, social media drivel, manipulated science and straw-man arguments. Most juicers are way smaller than you realise."

Natural'' bodybuilding is a SCAM and the Fitness industry is full of FRAUDS

"You are getting an unrealistic image of what is archieveable natural[y], you will not get that body natural without being on the juice"

"Lifting weights is and has always been a scam that was somehow made pretty by the fitness industry and the bodybuilding industry"

Joe Weider sold absolute garbage as his first supplements, and the FDA ordered him to remove these products from the market. He had Arnold model the magic "power bracelet". Joe was a conman.

However. People are stronger and healthier if they lift weights. People should just ignore the "influencers". God forbid they watch Jason Blaha. Most of what I have seen on the internet is poor advice for natural bodybuilding. Bench, squat, deadlift is a poor choice for building muscle. Try Ryan Humiston, the best, instead: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCj209lI...kK8e3qFFNQ
Or Jason Gallant https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoSnXBa...y2ZQqgCQXw
Technique matters, and Scott Herman or Jeff Cavaliere will not get someone to their true natural limit.

Talking about natty limits, we have to consider context. If someone only benches, their arms will not be as large as if they had benched and also did tricep and bicep isolation exercises. For most men building their physique, a proper diet and squats will take care of everything below the rib cage. So shoulders, upper back, chest, biceps, and triceps should take precedence. No isolation exercises, no reaching the natty limit. Don't eat enough food, won't reach the natty limit.

Whoever wrote the above last paragraph is talking complete shit.

You can definitely reach your natty limit with compound movements alone.
