Why Are All of These Young Men So Muscular Today?

Seems like every young guy is some sort of bodybuilder, or trying to become one. Are girls attracted to this look?

Diet and exercise play a part, but that particular look is the result of roids.

When I was lifting weights, before it was trendy, I got noticed. Some pursued me uncomfortably.

I know plenty of men who look like the OP's image who do not take steroids. Ever. Some people have a genetic code which makes them able to produce muscle quicker and with less effort in the gym. I was always jealous of the guys whose outer pecs were cut so beautifully. I tried for years and could not achieve that particular look.

I mean is this really that much of a mystery? Teen guys see images of hot muscular bros all over social media. Some of them decide they like the look and want to get in the game. So, they start hanging out at the gym after school if they’re not already there for organized sports. They throw around weights and they get results. They want more. A few are genetically gifted and just keep on growing. And those who are not, start using some enhancements. These guys realize that their body is currency that gets them noticed in person and on social media. And they get laid. Yes, there are a lot of gay guys who decide that they like the look, and if they want to get muscle boys in the sack, then they need to be a muscle boy (with a few rare exceptions).

ten years ago, I was amazed at what I could accomplish by doing cardio and eating on a portion control plan; even cheating here and there, the weight melted off -- actually, it came off gradually; 40 lbs. in 1 year three months; new clothes; self-esteem soared; the next step was weights (and more situps)

then I took some professional hits and fell back into old bad habits; lost it all; so now, how to begin anew in a covid world when metabolism isn't as great and can't do cardio as often (plantar faciitis sp?)

That guy on OP's post doesn't look like he uses steroids. Attend a "natural" bodybuilding show in your area, where they take blood samples on all of the contestants. There are some amazing-looking musclemen on those stages. They pride themselves on being enhancement-free, and the audiences give them a lot of respect because these guys didn't take any shortcuts.

by Anonymousreply 5508/12/2020

"the gayest sport known to man."

Gay or straight, it's not really a sport. It's more of an exhibition of exhibitionists.

The IOC has repeatedly denied bodybuilding a place at the Olympics because (a) its seriously seedy underbelly and (b) rampant drug use. The IOC knows it could make a lot of money by including BB in the Olympics, but the risks to its already greatly tarnished reputation are far too great for even a extremely corrupt organization like the IOC to take on.

Gyms are everywhere these days. Gym culture is a thing now. 99% of humans like a fit muscular bod. On a man or a woman. It's no wonder you see huge bodybuilder bods on 11th graders.

Yes, if the bod is huge it's mostly due to steroids. Steroids are the shortcut that works (unlike all the snakeoil "supplements" out there). Very few guys have that mesomorph type bod that packs on muscle in all the right places "naturally". And it usually takes years to get that kind of definition, so you used to not see it on guys younger than around 25. Now you see it on 15 year olds.

R58 if I could erase one type of comment from the DL, it would be that.

Have you ever actually spoken to a straight woman before, and listened to her thoughts on men? With a handful of exceptions they don’t like the scenario you presented happening in real life - it’s a fantasy for many, true, but in the flesh another story.

Even the sluttiest sorority girl, who has fucked multiple jocks (some of them at the same time), still isn’t looking to be brutally gangbanged and used as a cumrag by meatheads at the gym all day every day. That’s a violent horrific plot from rape-porn.

Shocking as this sounds, female bodies and brains don’t actually respond very well to men who could - physically and mentally, taking roidrage into account - crush their head like a grape. Biologically it isn’t even advantageous no matter what Chads say, because all that working out doesn’t change the quality of genes imparted or improve the personality of the potential mate. But you knew all that.

Unless you've met a bodybuilder, you really don't know what he is thinking. I know an opera singer who bodybuilds; the exercise keeps his lungs in top form and he can endure long series of words in a single breath. He told me steroids would alter his singing abilities, so he doesn't use them. A man currently working on two patents says steroids would alter his moods and concentration; therefore he doesn't use them. Another man I know is a body part model, "hands, feet, eyes..." Taking steroids would change his skin and the amount of water he naturally carries. So, he doesn't use them.

I know these three men from working out with them for over a decade. Their bodies look dynamite. Someone may assume no results are achieved unless steroids are used. They haven't met the real people whose lives are affected by the fitness choices they make. It diminishes all of their accomplishments, physically and professionally, to say every damn one of them is on the juice.

They're not. If anyone wants to challenge this, go to a gym for a month and talk to the guys who are there. Then tell me you can flatly say all bodybuilders, no matter how their physiques look, are on steroids.

Yeah - steroids are rampant for sure. The sad reality is that you only look great for just so many "cycles". They take their toll on your body. 10 years ago I had a couple buddies who were both very handsome and sexy athletes who decided to start "bodybuilding". Neither needed to change a thing and I wish that they never did. One was a closeted fuck bud and the other a straight acquaintance - both in their early 20's at that time. Did they spend more time in the gym to bulk up and sculpt? I would say marginally yes...maybe - but the primary change was that they started anabolic steroid cycles. For the first couple of years they looked noticeably sexier - lean, ripped, bulging in all the right places, guns, buns, abs and very much hotter than ever. The change was obvious and I have to say was a jaw-dropping improvement. Fast forward a few years later and neither were looking the same. Both were getting puffy, had bad skin, thicker ankles and wider hips (not in a good way) and I noticed that they were facially different - thicker necks and more jowly. They had left the Adonis level and now seemed more "fit fat" and looked a lot older. Now 10 years later - neither are very attractive at all. Both suffer from Gynecomastia which is not attractive in the least. Both have gained weight in all the wrong places and the body changes appear to permanent. The straight one stopped working out all together after he and his wife had 2 kids. He easily gained 60/70 lbs and is a far cry from the stud that he once was. That said, he seems happy and settled into being a dad. The fuck bud still lifts but looks flabby and thick (even at 6'3"). I have to assume that both guys would still be achingly handsome had they just avoided the juice to begin with - but those 2/3 years of being an Adonis must have been worth it? I won't even start on how anabolics changed their personalities; that story has been told thousands of times and doesn't bear repeating.

My third friend has been using anabolics for 15 years and seems to have none of these side effects. He is still ripped and lean. So like every drug - it all depends on the user.

For those that don’t know what these guys are doing to themselves, here is an enlightening article on Zac Efron and male body shame:

[QUOTE] Efron even knows his body isn’t the norm. In his “Hot Ones” interview, Efron stated, “That was actually a really important time to do Baywatch because I realized that when I was done with that movie, I don’t ever want to be in that good of shape again. Really. It was so hard. You’re working with almost no wiggle room, right? You’ve got things like water under your skin that you’re worrying about, making your six-pack into a four-pack. Shit like that — it’s just not — it’s just stupid.”

[QUOTE] To remain perfectly defined, Efron had to worry about everything he put in his body, down to how much water he drank each day. That routine does not create a healthy mindset, which certainly took its toll on Efron.

[QUOTE]Efron reiterates this in in Episode 4, titled “Sardinia,” when Efron and his costar, lifestyle guru Darin Olien, travel to Sardinia, Italy, to explore why so many of the region’s residents live to become centenarians. They find that one reason is because of the local diet. Locals eat far less protein than Americans and more whole, unprocessed carbs and vegetables. For example, pasta is a staple in their daily lives.

[QUOTE]Efron got emotional, seeming to nearly cry, while eating the pasta he had cooked alongside the locals. “I’m so glad I’m eating carbs again. Like, I went years without eating carbs. When I was shooting Baywatch, I didn’t have a carb for like six months. I almost lost my mind. You-you need this,” he said. Carbs are an essential part of the human diet and avoiding them completely is considered a form of disordered eating. Limiting a vital piece of the human diet is far too restrictive. The path to a healthy diet is moderation, not excessive constraints.

I stopped working out at the age of 50, R143. I've never used steroids. I'm now sixty and I have gained weight, enough to say I have a pudgy belly and my nipples fell four inches when my chest got smaller. I don't miss the workouts anymore. If you asked me this fifteen years ago, it would seem unheard of to me.

I had my share of gorgeous men asking me out, wrestlers who expressively wanted to pin me, creeps who won't take "no" for an answer, old men at nude beaches who walked over to say hello and compliment me. I was very proud of my body, especially since I was a geeky, nerdy, thick-rimmed glasses wearer in school. I enjoyed the looks on their faces when I walked into my 25th high school reunion.

I had my fun. I enjoyed the attention. But I realize I have a more challenging path in life. I will never look that way again, and it's OK.

I do have to share that when regular gym members got married, we never saw them at the gym again. Babies were born. Their careers were more serious. Their priorities change. So, don't give these guys a hard time. Ten years from now, they will probably be pudgy and their bodies will start to slip downward, just like all the rest of us.

My biggest regret, a Playgirl photographer once asked me to pose for him. I said "No!" I wish I could see those pictures now.....

I was always fit but built big muscle mass from about 38 and stayed that way for about 10 years or so. I was never ripped like these guys - didn’t want to be - but had a flat stomach, big muscle ass, lots of power, a really good physique. I used to really enjoy going to the gym.

But what happens is like what R163 says, something happens. Marriage, kids, business travel, etc. In my case, I had serious health issues at around 49 and lost about 70% of my mobility. For about 2.5 years, all I did was remedial exercise and rehabilitation. I fought my way back from there and I still exercise but nothing like programmes I used to work. I’ve had some success occasionally to work a programme for about 7 - 10 weeks, stringing together some sessions but, y’know, stuff happens. I couldn’t afford my luxury gym anymore and it was just challenging to replicate what I’d been doing for 10 years at a budget gym.

I’m still in it though. I just turned 54, still recovering from a bad bout of COVID (I was hospitalised for a month). But I still have great form and amazingly retain about 80% of my strength. I’m not out yet, it’s worth the effort to maintain your health and fitness while you can.

But, of course, these guys won’t look like that forever. I think they stymie their growth potential by starting too soon and all those supplements do mess up their body’s natural metabolism.

I worked out in the '80s and '90s. I never saw myself as anything approaching hunky or muscular, even though I gained 17 pounds of muscle over that period. Years later, I would run into people I knew back then, and they would say something along the lines of "Yeah, you were quite a hunk those days."

This always surprises me. It's not like I suddenly became any more popular. Neither Eric (definitely gay) nor Jeff (maybe gay) from the Dupont Athletic Club seemed to even notice I existed. I got more attention from Louis (definitely straight, but the best-looking guy in the gym).

I had a few boyfriends those days, but people were, I suppose, afraid to have sex. None of them became the great love of my life. Of the three guys I was that attracted to during this period, two never set foot in a gym.

I really don't get it - almost all the young guys in this thread and most other threads on DL are of this skinny six-pack muscle variety. I think their stomachs look like crayfish.
