Pro Bodybuilding and Muscle Dysmorphia
Do you think that the top ten Olympia contenders have muscle dysmorphia ("bigorexia") or do you think they have reached a point where, even if they did have it at one time, now they are like, "****, I am huge."

I've wondered this myself... like how big do I have to get before I think I'm not small anymore? I guess I'll know when it happens lol

I think at that point they only search for flaws in thier bodies, if they gave themselves any credit there would be less motivation to train for the next show. If you come in at 295 lbs at like 3 or 4% bf and you think you need to get bigger for the next competition, yeah I think there might be some muscle dismorphia there, but then again I think some just do whatever it takes to win, regardless of the cost financially or health wise.

whats even funnier is the ones with the 13" arms that wear tight tight shirts. We had this one dork back in high school that came in one day wearing his little sisters t-shirt, I think she was in middle school at the time. I mean, I'm 229 lbs, I might be able to squeeze into a medium, but it's pushing it, probably more like a large. These idiots must be wearing childrens sized clothing.
