Q: Do you think the pendulum of the fitness world swings too far when looking up to fitness models and bodybuilders with single digit body fat numbers, setting people up for disappointment? How realistic is a level of physique that really captures attention like a fitness model on a cover of a magazine or an actor in a movie?
-Yes the pendulum does swing to far instead we should see more-testimonials of people making progress based on real life struggles. High level Physique development for most people is very Unrealistic. These individuals typically have just completed being in contest shape and will not even hold this level of shape for no more than a few weeks.
I know this first hand, because I compete as a natural bodybuilder and work as a fitness model.
