Arnold's Bodybuilding And Moral Detransfomation

It's time for a quick Bodybuilding Detransformation.

Bodybuilding detransformations are meant to illustrate that bodybuilding is pretty much all drugs. The muscles of the IFBB pros dissappear into the nothingness soon after they stop injecting. Whether you believe it or not, bodybuilding is a sport completely based on drugs since day one. 

After 1930 there is no a single natural bodybuilder.

“How strange when an illusion dies. It's as though you've lost a child.” 

What happened?

Arnold decided to collect some more money by making another substance deprived soft porn like training video. Notice that he looks deflated like a balloon. That's how he looked on low doses of steroids. The video above says more than you think and reveals how shallow and artificial the bodybuilding culture is, and how little integrity even the so-called "legends" had. 

The clips shows an infective way to train. I would even say that this is one of the worst ways to train. Training videos like this this cause cause serious disinformation. Unfortunately, if we put the technical part away and focus on the moral side, it does not get any better. From the video it turns out that Arnold is a hypocrite. This is not a shocker. Integrity deprived videos like the one above were probably his preparation for the political scene. He never trained like that. Never. It's a gimmick and he knew it at the time. He didn't care. The same way the bodybuilders don't care when they sell protein powders to the little kids. All they care about is money and justify their behavior by saying that if you don't know what's going on you deserve to be robbed. This is a statement that only a blind person would do.

If I am a doctor and sell you a pill that doesn't work and you remain sick, should I justify my behavior by saying: "You should know better?".

The cool thing about bodybuilding is that you get to learn a lot about the world because the same principle applies everywhere. The idea is, of course, that the celebrities are liars and the society has been brainwashed into worshiping individuals who are not worth much. 

Everybody wants to be famous and success is always measured in money. If you are not making money out of what you are doing, you are no good. On the other hand if you are making money even from not so moral activities, you are treated as a king. Having a small cigarette kiosk on the street is considered a low life, while being the CEO of Philip Morris is respected, even thought in both cases the money comes from the same place - from those who are supposed to "know better".

The sellouts think that they can escape justice. They believe that they can get away with doing harm to other people. They believe they are GODS. But they are wrong and are ultimately slaves to their own egos. If natures has taught us something, it's that balance is achieved at all costs. Nigh and day, young and old, hungry and fed, drinking and hangovers, work and sleep...everything comes with an opposite. That's how balance is achieved. 

You do bad, you get bad - maybe not in this life; but sooner or later we pay the price under one form or another. We are here to learn a lesson and that cannot be changed.
