Size Matters?

I'm a true believer in the idea that building a stronger, better body is a damned righteous endeavor. Maybe not the most noble pursuit ever, but still admirable; and at least a smart thing to do. What I find pitiful, however, are the guys who never seem to be satisfied with their gains. Pick up a copy of one the supplement catalogs- I mean magazines like Iron Man, Flex, Men's Health... It's a sad state of affairs. You'd think the secret to happiness and health is to workout for four hours every day, and fill your body full of all the latest chemical laden supplements.

Even these "natural" bodybuilders have jumped on the bandwagon. As long as its not on the list of banned substances for competitions, they're more than happy to flex next to a photoshopped giant bottle of powder. But whatever, everybodys got to make a living somehow.

Bigger might not be better, just a thought. I'll still watch the Mr. Olympia, cheer for the winner, and pray for him when he has his hip replacement surgery in fifteen years.
