Ian McCarthy, the new Bodybuilding Guru
 
Guy causes quite a stir on Facebook it appears. I've seen his Facebook bodybuilding page and he seems to have an opinion on everything.

I'm not posting this to mock the guy. It is what it is. Merely posting this for discussion. He has quite a following.

I've seen his vids. I don't know were I would place him in the rack of knowledge vrs real world knowledge and personal experience and results.

I kind of feel like this vid states.

Maybe his idea of bodybuilding is this:

I don't want to be on the outside of the Abercrombie and Fitch bag. I'll pass, thanks.

I'm not listening to a skinny kid tell me about bodybuilding when his own body (or lack thereof) betrays his supposed depth of knowledge.

To not be politically correct. I feel the is a key board know it all dope making money off his vids (they all have the add's on them).

Tell tail sign of if its for the money or knowlage.

He is the type that would look at my medical records never meet me, and point blank say, "There is no way in hell he can lift." and state it is pure fact.

Good video you posted Rich.

Time and time again I see e-lifters tell everyone what does and doesn't work, all the while some advanced lifter is off in the gym using it to make gains.

This guys a **** stick.
I'm sorry, but I have trouble accepting at face value advice from someone who cannot and has not been ever to apply the so called knowledge that he spouts.

I said this in another thread, but:
If you are not currently or have never been at some time in your life buff, strong, swole, ripped, powerful, cut, muscular, yoked or any other word you want to use for someone who has achieved some success as a weightlifter (no matter the goal), then you are NOT qualified to tell someone who is or has been that they are wrong.

This is like the kid who reads every article on the internet about the subject of lifting yet is skinny and/or weak, but goes on the forums and spouts his views and opinions as if they are the gold standard, to everyone and anyone possible.

Just my opinion on the matter. Phonies bother me.

Nothing that he said in that video at least seemed particularly off, well he didn't really say much. What else does he go on about?

He is known for making black and white statements, many of which go against what experienced bodybuilders are using to be successful.

At least from what I can tell.

Says you can prep for a show eating simple sugars all the time. IE pop tarts.

Claims BCAA's(XTEND fo example) were overhyped by Lobliner, and are not beneficial( despite many studies saying different)

He currently has a $1000 challenge to anyone who can disprove his carbs are carbs , doesnt matter what you eat they all work the same.

for lulz

That works a lot better when you're 18 and hormonally strong. Like the kid in the response video says, it will catch up to you.

At 44, eating too much dirty food leaves me feeling like a 20 pound sack of crap in a 10 pound bag. Young guys can get away from food murder, and should if it's needed for overall calories. But too much of a bad thing always catches up to you. We all know this.

Just because something can work doesn't mean it's optimal. I can ride a big wheel to the grocery store. Not optimal, but it gets things done.
