I still see a conglomerate of lifting groups, circles, etc that espouse the entire theme of "I don't care what I look like, I am a strength athlete. I eat to get stronger." That or "I'm a strength athlete. I eat for performance, not for looks."
This is nothing more than an excuse to eat shit, get fat.
I am not proclaiming that you need to be ripped as a strength athlete. However as you look around the strength landscape the majority of the guys that are dominating are not tubby fat asses.
If you are eating for performance then your physique should be a reflection of that. You are not Big Z or Benni, so stop using the 1% of the 1% to justify your lard-assedness. If you are eating to perform, then your physique should be a reflection of that.
Training for looks isn't the name of the game. However as I've written 100 times before, your function should create your form. If you don't LOOK like you lift, then something is very wrong in regards to your diet and training.
Being "thick" because you're FAT isn't any different than.....being fat because you're fat.
Stop making excuses and get your shit in order.
"Leverages! Fat gives me leverages."
You know what else does? Muscle. Build some.
