Remember the good old days when people that gave advice actually looked like they worked out? I have nothing against these blog happy, e-book selling, email subscription gathering snorkers giving out good advice, but what I want to know is why so few of them look like they lift?

Lifting is hard. So much easier to sit behind this here keyboard and tell young minds full of mush what to do.

You can't always tell just by looks alone...

I'm not going to name names. I just do a lot Google searching and I see these slick ass blogs with stuff like ask the expert and then you see their picture and they have 14 inch arms and look like some average guy with no muscle.

Well, I see what you're saying, but judging the quality of information based on what someone looks like does have some problems.

In the 1970s and 1980s, the equivalent was mail order courses by bodybuilders. They certainly looked like they lifted, but was their advice any good for the average guy? Not necessarily: Mike Mentzer was advising 1-2 working sets per bodypart per week. At the opposite end of the scale, you had the insane volume of Steve Michalik. Drug usage made their schemes irrelevant to most people.

Lyle MacDonald doesn't look like he could lift a packet of crisps (though actually, he did compete as a powerlifter), but he has lots of interesting and useful stuff to say about training and diet.

People also have an unrealistic view of what a natural bodybuilder should look like.

Lyle Mcdonald is a shithead, i see him go facebook all the time and talk shit to people. Some random young kid he was like you have no lats you runt, go learn to use a pull down machine. He wasnt kidding either. He posted don Kai Greens page, Kai posted something about chasing dreams. Lyle commented" Why dont you suck dick and do some drugs Kai"
Id take a round out of a disrespectful shithead like him. He would nev
