Bodybuilding is pure masturbation

Postby Jeremy » Sat Jan 10, 2015 10:10 pm

It's become like a weird cult in the last 10 years. Participating in this bizarre and pointless "hobby" is seen as a basic requirement among millennial males. Criticizing it is bordering on sacrilege.

But does it really offer much in the way of... well... ANYTHING? Let's look at the oft-cited benefits:

It'll get you laid - nope. After a year and a half of dedicated lifting, I have a body not unlike Ryan Gosling's in Crazy Stupid Love. And yet every non-obese girl still rejects me.

It'll increase T levels - aside from the small spike you get immediately after lifting (which has zero effect on anything), the only way to increase T is by injecting it.

Real men lift / lift or go home / other macho nonsense - Lol just give up. There's nothing inherently noble or productive about lifting metal plates. No more than using those hands to jerk yourself off... "Bro."

And that's why bodybuilding is masturbation.

Your wrong guy, women like men who take care of themselves and have good genetics to build muscle. Guy's who are strong and well defined are loved by women. When I work out and start getting big the women notice big time. Now guy's who work out and nothing happens this is a real turn off to women.

This is why in a way I am jealous of some black guys because they have great genetics.

I used to be hardcore into bodybuilding when i was younger but then realized my genetics sucked and now i just do it for health reasons. All in all it didn't help me in anything. Going to philippines was more beneficial in th at regard. :D

I agree with the title of the OP. After a certain point, bodybuilding is just vanity, nothing more.

It shouldn't and doesn't take much to get in reasonably good shape. Spending an inordinate amount of time in the gym body building reveals an unhealthy obsession with the body, bordering on idolatry. It's no wonder many homosexual males are into bodybuilding.

In the chump-zone it's zero-sum since every chump has done his homework already. You then have to start adding bicep tats, sleeves, disturbing ear-lobe insertions etc.

Again, this is the real problem. There are not enough attractive women.
1)Too much of one thing defeats the purpose.
2)Everybody is full of it. What's your hypocrisy?

Being big, strong and athletic is a desirable end in itself. I must get back to the gym.

First off, if you do bodybuilding to get women you are doing it wrong. If anything you'll end up becoming LESS INTERESTED IN WOMEN overall because of the resulting increase in self-esteem. Believe it or not most of the time you wanna have a girlfriend you just wanted some validation.

Secondly the type of women who only notice you when you turn into a hunk is probably not the type of women you wanna go for in the first place. I just find it sickening that males have to jack themselves up in status/looks just to date down.

If you read the bible bodybuilding definitely would be a sin. Perhaps idolatry? Is vanity a sin? There is a bunch of sins it could be classified as. So it can't be healthy if its a sin.

There is not enough attrctive women ANYWHERE. And since men are supposed to be the "chasers" it means by default men are put at a disadvantage of a high sex drive and social norm to chase when there is only a limited quality of women lookswise. Going abroad only EVENS the balance or slightly tips it in our favor. Which is why even abroad it takes some work.

I don't understand why this is even a topic?

For one, is there anyone in the armed forces: Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marines, who isn't required to do a certain number of pushups, pullups, wall climbing, and running drills? All of those things improves one's strength and fitness level.

And if let's say doing 70+ pushups becomes too easy, add a weighted vest and you'll be back to 10-20 reps instantly. And if you're worried about your stomach or lower back, get a medicine ball and do those core strength training exercises.

In the end, you'll be toned and fit. No one is asking anyone to become a steroid monster. Exercise should simply be a good daily habit, not an obsession.
16 years ago, the Best Picture of 1999, "American Beauty", telegraphed the message of Happier Abroad to the world.

Beware of long term engagements with AWs, you may find yourself in a coffin.

AB discussion thread

BTW, despite settling down with an AW, myself, the warning is still in effect.

As I said in another thread only slaves need muscle.

Jehovah values brains over muscle too:

4 Adam was intimate with his wife Eve, and she conceived and gave birth to Cain. She said, “I have had a male child with the Lord’s help.”[a] 2 Then she also gave birth to his brother Abel. Now Abel became a shepherd of flocks, but Cain worked the ground. 3 In the course of time Cain presented some of the land’s produce as an offering to the Lord. 4 And Abel also presented an offering—some of the firstborn of his flock and their fat portions. The Lord had regard for Abel and his offering, 5 but He did not have regard for Cain and his offering. Cain was furious, and he looked despondent.

Non-slave men in barbarian cultures such as biblical Jews once were are either warriors or scholars or both. Warriors need muscles.

Not exactly. Since you have the jew work mentality and refuse to accept the messiah I can see why you would miss the whole point of that section which has nothing to do with vanity or muscle or any other ludicrous message as the real point to the message. you can't see the slight difference. But its the difference between salvation and eternal hellfire.


https://www.christiancourier.com/articles/1255-why-was-cains-sacrifice-rejected


How did Abel present his sacrifice unto the Lord? It was by faith. Moses did not write that Cain offered his sacrifice by faith, and no New Testament writer comments on the faith of Cain demonstrated by this offering.

If Cain did not offer his gifts unto God by faith, then how did he worship? The opposite of faith is by sight (2 Cor. 5:7), that is, through human intuition.

Cain worshipped according to “sight” — according to what his own senses and wisdom dictated would be an honorable gift unto the Lord.

No doubt, his produce was lovely to look upon. No doubt, he labored over those crops until the harvest. No doubt he anticipated that all the hard work, time, and care he had spent on those offerings would be acceptable.

His expectation of acceptance is clearly demonstrated by his reaction to the Lord’s rejection of his sacrifice.

But Cain’s offering was not rejected because he did not worship in earnest.

Instead, his offering was rejected because it was offered according to his own presumption and not by faith.

Faith is not simply a feeling of confident expectation. Cain had that.

Rather, faith is the result of hearing God’s word, submitting the mind and body to its dominion, and acting in accordance to what the Lord has instructed.

Faith is not simply a feeling of confident expectation. Cain had that.

Rather, faith is the result of hearing God’s word, submitting the mind and body to its dominion, and acting in accordance to what the Lord has instructed.

There is a truism attributed to a Chinese philosopher that says, “To know and not do is to not know.”

The same principle can be applied to faith, “To believe God, and not obey him, is to not believe him.” Or as James wrote, “faith apart from works is dead” (2:26).

To whatever extent it could be said that Cain worshipped before the Lord, his activity was negated by the fact that it was not according to faith.

By way of contrast, Abel’s offering was by faith.

Why is faith attributed to Abel? Paul defines the source of faith that is well-pleasing to God in Romans 10:17.

“So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.”

Let’s reason.

Abel offered his sacrifice by faith (Heb. 11:4).
But faith comes by hearing the word of God (Rom 10:17)
Therefore, Abel offered his sacrifice by hearing and obeying the word of God.

Cain did not offer his sacrifice by faith. Therefore, he did not worship according to the word of God. And God rejected his offering.



Those who, just like Cain, neglect the clear teaching of the Lord in matters of salvation and invent for themselves their own system of access to the sacrifice of Christ are practicing the religion of Cain.
