    tbh, the diets and lifestyles I've heard from a lot of these blokes ain't that healthy anyway. Certainly a lot of the ripped set I've bumped into at the gym aren't that fit in my experience. That, of course, ain't anything new because the aim is to look a certain way, not to be fit. Anyone who's done weight training for any length of time knows the exercises for body building vs strength training are very different.

    Have to admit I do haunt the uni gym now and then to get my core strength up to speed (basically doing kinky **** with an exercise ball half the time). And in defense of supplements, if you time your intake properly you can wake up the next day with no aches or pains whatsoever, which is something I've learned to value.

    Fitness isn't all bad, you know. A select few are even nice enough to show you the best technique for some of the machines.

    This is true, though it should be a source of embarrassment that because of this trend it's difficult for men who actually have a chest and shoulders to buy some brands of clothes. It's pathetic to see a shirt labelled XXL and you can't put it on because its designed for some hipster kid with a pirate's delight.

    No, haven't been to the States yet.

    Seriously, try some of these bloody Italian or French designers. It's ridiculous, their sizings are absurd. Some of the brands are fine, like Canali or Zegna - their sizings are accurate. But some of them are just terrible. Meant for stick insects, not human beings.

    The best look is a big upper body and chicken legs I reckon. Shows there's a balanced approach to their routine.

    Most blokes I've met who spend a ****load of time in the gym making themselves big have also been obnoxious pricks. Haven't been inside a gym for quite some time mind you.

    Not all machines are good for you. The squat machine for example looks like it would make squatting easier but is dangerous for your back if you are not very careful with your squatting technique. Not a fan of machines in gyms. Like using my body weight or free weights like dumbbells to workout. The little supporting muscles in your body get strengthened this way and chances of getting hamstring injuries(in the case of the squatting machine for example) while playing some sport is significantly reduced.
