Bodybuilding: Contrast & Compare

The Satanic Art of Bodybuilding

I noticed something disconcerting about Body Builders nowadays. It seems that most if not all of them have a minimal concept of symmetry. Notice the physiques from the 70's and 80's to those now, and one will notice that bodybuilders now seem to over-develop their mid-sections to the point where it seems like they ironically have rotund stomachs!

In the documentary "Pumping Iron", Arnold Swarzennegger mentioned the necessity of sculpting the physique like an artist would a statue.

The ideal symmetry would be one of mass muscle from the chest up and arms, and legs to a certain degree, but not to the point where one cannot walk properly. The mid-section should be exercised with little to no weight with increased repetitions, thus preserving compact abs and obliques, creating that V-shape. In contrast, BB abdominals now look like bursting intestines, where the posture is compromised, and the body looks more or less unaturally barrel-shaped, and rather grotesque.*

It is understood that certain physiques have various propensities according to The Synthesizer Clock, but the body can be nonetheless shaped to specification with a discerning eye, like slapping some clay on that statue, to add and diminish where desired. Thus, a more graceful structure may be achieved, aesthetically embodying the classical God-flesh.

* Not mentioning the extreme anatomical appearence, unless in actual competition, such definition is unecessary, and some would argue even unhealthy. Bulk is according to one's preference.
