    Stereotypes about bodybuilders

    Do you think there is a stereotype about bodybuilders? Not like huge guys, but people with decent muscle on them who you can tell lift weights, not the really skinny ones, but cut and good muscle. Do you think it makes you get viewed as more arrogant and cocky? Do you ever hear people say stuff like "wow you must live in the gym" or "don't you know there's more to life than working out"? Do you think it makes you look vain?

    Just curious. I'm not talking down on BBers by the way since I am one.
    You should always play fair when you have the winning hand.

    The one sterotype about BB'ers that pisses me off is the one that labels us as "Stupid". If we are so stupid, why is it that we could transform our body into lean muscular sculptures. If it was so easy to tone our body, you would have 90% of the adult population wlking around with ripped abs,arms,huge backs, vice versa.
    Spare the reps, bang a chick.

    I'm a senior in HS and I really enjoy the rumors...

    "I heard you were on steroids."
    "All that **** you take is gonna kill you."
    "Creatine is seriously bad for you."
    "You take more pills than a drug addict."

    Etc... I personally get a kick out of all of them...

    I think that the people who are out of shape have no idea how much effort it really takes to obtain a bodybuilders physique. They just think anyone can walk in the gym and curl some dumbells over and over and get big. They don't take into consideration the strict diet, supplements, lifestyle etc. So they just think bodybuilders are big idiots that spend all there time at the gym.

    It doesn't help that out of shape people are insanely jealous of bodybuilder's physiques so they belittle them by saying they are stupid. Its a cop out for them. They like to believe that bodybuilders only nurture their body and not their mind. They refuse to believe that bodybuilders do anything besides workout because then they would have to wonder how someone else has time for work, school, hobbies AND WORKING OUT. They try to make themselves feel intellectually superior because they know they are physically inferior.

    In 1945, Adolf Hilter died and went to Hell. Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" He replied, "I am responsible for the massacre of millions" Satan said, "well done, sit to the right of my throne." In 1953, Joseph Stalin died and went to Hell. Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" He replied "I killed millions to stay in power" Satan said "good, sit to my left" 2010, Ronnie James Dio died and went to Hell, Satan asked, "why are you in Hell?" Dio replied, "Bitch, get the fuk off my throne!"

    Sometimes it's a good thing if people are talking about you behind your back.

    It's called jealousy.

    Someone once told me that lifting weights "isn't rocket science." I realize it's not rocket science, but it's not like picking your nose either.

    That pissed me off for a good while.

    I think the biggest stereotype would be that bodybuilders lack a bit of intelligence. Another big one is that all they care about is themselves or hopping from one girl to the next.

    Mainly the food thing is a stereotype I see. My mum thought that bodybuilders will eat beef raw, and eggs raw 5 times a day.

    My mate thinks anyone who lifts weight and has a bit of size will be slow and laggy in sports, but someone with a bit of fat is perfectly fine, which doesn't make sense to me considering muscle is more compact and smaller than fat.

    It doesn't help that out of shape people are insanely jealous of bodybuilder's physiques so they belittle them by saying they are stupid. Its a cop out for them. They like to believe that bodybuilders only nurture their body and not their mind. They refuse to believe that bodybuilders do anything besides workout because then they would have to wonder how someone else has time for work, school, hobbies AND WORKING OUT. They try to make themselves feel intellectually superior because they know they are physically inferior.
    Well said.

    Some stereotypes:

    1) we're stupid, we only know about physical growth, not mental
    2) creatine and protein powder is dangerous and not natural
    3) if you weigh over 200 pounds, you either take steroids or have the genetics of a god, because as we know no amount of hard work will take you over 200 pounds!
    4) we are arrogant and cocky
    5) we care more about muscles than anything
    6) we bodybuild to make up for other inadequecies
    7) we are incredibly vain
    8) we are all "manly men", sexist, etc

    Obviously all of this comes from jealousy.
    You should always play fair when you have the winning hand.

    That we are stupid.
    Ever see the Malcolm in the Middle episode?

    Half the guys in my Ph.D. program workout regularly. That is also part of the reason they made it to this level in the first place. Bodybuilding taught them dedication and passion for a goal. This same mentality easily translated into working towards an academic goal, however long. I did a Masters degree first. One guy skipped that and went straight into the Ph.D. because he "liked the challenge."

    I 'd have to say that Body builders are considered arrogant by A LOT of people, I think thats probably the first conclusion drawn by non-fitness oriented people, because these people are not putting forth the effort for physical improvement, therefore believing its about vanity rather than self improvement...... Ignorance is bliss.

    There are a few kids at school who make jokes about creatine and gesture towards me with a curling motion.
