Come on Donald, you're a bright guy but a lot of your posts are "Joel says this..."
or "Lyle says that..."
I know you're learning all the time but let's not be so artless.
The whole spat was mindless. A kid coached by a guy who wrote a book called Starting Strength
got stronger. In that process to support those gains and his hard work he consumed calories and put on weight. But he got stronger
. He did not aspire to some silly 21st Century convention of looking like an andro rent boy and fearing the loss of visible abz. A bunch of keyboard warriors who favour the leg press & coke fuelled Armani models wet their pants about it.
