Yea same. Except no one who did his workout or ate like him got aesthetic like him. End goal that's the physique I want. My best friend who started me on powerlifting has a physique very similar to his if not better and most of what I do in the gym and lifestyle is really close to what I learned from him.
This is pretty homo, but sorta true.
If we’re going to get real….
The “70sbig ethos” was never what drew people to the site. It was always Justin. The videos and images of him looking strong, thick, solid. That was the dream. We could always delude ourselves into believing that we did what we did because we wanted to become better lifters, or be more manly. But deep down, in places we don’t talk about at parties, it was always about being like Justin.
That was why Brent provided such a delicious juxtaposition in the 70sbig world. Justin was the dream, what we could be. Brent is the reality, what we are.
The content of 70sbig hasn’t changed all that much since Justin left, but we lost the dream. Now it’s harder to avoid the cold reality. We train, we compete, but we’re still fat, still weak, still unaesthetic, reaching goals and milestones that have no meaning in the wider world. We will never be Justin. There was never a chance that we would be.
