      Bodybuilding Supplements: The Greatest Lie Ever Told

      How an Industry Scams the Public

      by Master Chief

      It’s not every day that a reasonably priced supplement comes across
      my desk. In fact, between the pre-workout mixes that provide little more
      than a sugar rush and the post-workout BCAA mixes that offer little
      more than a placebo effect of one’s muscles ‘recovering’, the entire
      supplement industry seems resigned to doing nothing other than
      re-inventing the wheel and spawning loose imitations of products we
      first saw back in the mid-80’s. But then again, other than producing a
      new color of a translucent plastic container, what else can an industry
      do when the entire business model is based on nothing but lies and
      fraud?

      Readers of MuscleWeek already know that the entire supplement
      industry is based on one massive lie: TAKE THIS [USELESS OVERPRICED
      SUPPLEMENT] TO LOOK LIKE THIS [JUICED UP BODYBUILDER]. In reality,
      bodybuilders and fitness models use a combination of growth hormone,
      thyroid, clenbuterol and good old-fashioned steroids to build those
      physiques we see in the advertisements, with a touch of synthol in those
      hardgainer muscles like calves and rear delts. But don’t tell the
      gullible public about that — it’s a slippery slope and if you question
      their belief in supplements, they might start to have doubts about the
      existence of the tooth fairy, Santa, and even God himself.

      The sad reality is that men have been manipulated into being suckers
      in the precise manner that the cosmetics industry created suckers out of
      millions of women by telling them this lie: USE THIS [OVERPRICED
      MAKEUP] TO LOOK LIKE THIS [PHOTOSHOPPED MODEL].



      MLB Pitcher Jim Palmer: Ideal Physique of the 70’s


      Nevermind that the $2 bottle of Maybelline mascara is made in the
      same lab and uses the identical ingredients as the $40 bottle of Lancome
      mascara. Americans associate price and packaging with quality. The more
      money you charge for that fancy box, the better it must be, right?

      While women were spending their husband’s money in the 70’s on makeup
      and cigarettes and learning step-by-step how to objectify themselves by
      reading Glamour, Cosmopolitan and Vogue, men were obliviously blissful
      in their chubby bodies and all the better for it. Other than Major
      League Baseball pitcher Jim Palmer in a Jockey ad, there was little for
      men to aspire to (or worry about). Seriously, take a look at that guy
      and tell me we haven’t devolved into a culture of insecure, vain,
      emasculated sissies. Cheesy grin with no threat of danger? Check. Chest
      hair? Check. Tightie whities? Check. Do you really think Jim Palmer
      followed up with the photographer to check the proofs to make sure his
      stomach looked ‘tight’, to verify his muscles appeared ‘pumped’ or his
      ‘package’ looked impressive enough to prevent locker room teasing?

      The ’80’s brought us Jon Bon Jovi and proved that body hair was still
      acceptable, smiling was still preferable to snarling, and it was okay
      to look like the heaviest object you ever lifted was a 16 ounce can of
      Budweiser. I never went backstage at a Bon Jovi concert, but something
      tells me that not having a six-pack or 20-inch guns wouldn’t have hurt
      Jon with the ladies.

      Nowadays, men and women are bombarded by images of muscular actors,
      ripped singers, and brawny athletes. Gone are the days when an obese man
      like Refrigerator Perry could be an athletic icon or a chubster like
      John Wayne could be a sex symbol. We want our superstars (and husbands)
      to look like Brad Pitt in Troy, Ryan Gosling in Crazy, Stupid Love
      or Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in anything. And just like a grown woman
      thinking that Victoria’s Secret bra modeled by Adriana Lima is going to
      cause her breasts to resemble those of a Victoria’s Secret model, grown
      men are now equally duped into believing that taking something called
      No-Xplode or Hemo-Rage is going to turn their beer bellies into
      six-packs.

      Reality check: It doesn’t work that way (despite what your spouse
      responds when prodded). Bodybuilding supplements are an emotional
      placebo, making us believe that our workout or cardio session was more
      productive because of the additional ‘supplementation’. In reality,
      there is no objective way to measure their effectiveness. Most lifters
      simply try a few different brands and settle on the FLAVOR that they
      prefer, without regard for whether the supplement is actually providing
      any tangible benefits. To the gym rat, it doesn’t matter: The benefit is
      mental. The aspiring bodybuilder BELIEVES he is making progress.

      And therein lies the rub: In the same manner that women feel
      fulfilled by purchasing cosmetics, buying supplements fills an identical
      need within the male psyche.

      Thanks to the media marketing machine, the bodybuilding supplement scam is alive and well in 2014.
