    Don't get me wrong, the guy was shredded, but there are people with much better physiques out there, natty and not so natty.
    Can only assume it was his lifestyle, but I can't see how that's a reason for someone to be such a big figure in the bodybuilding community.

    He's not a big figure in the bodybuilding community. He's a big figure in the bodybuilding.com community. There's a big difference.

    And that's simply because of his lifestyle, personality and standing on the forum.

    Haha! Very true. I don't really go on there often, but I certainly see where you're coming from. Is Jeff Seid big on there then? He seems to be cut from the Zyzz cloth.

    Honestly it was because of what he represents.


    He was a typical nerdy socially awkward guy who only had one gf who wasn't really into him who decided to become more and for a few years he lived an incredible life of casual sex and hard drug use. There is a slight element of nerd revenge fantasy too, he often turned down girls, called them sluts for no real reason and said he would never lower himself to ****ing such a woman and that is probably the ultimate male>female powerplay.

    Yes, he was shredded and able to achieve a ridiculously low body fat whilst carrying a lot of muscle. However, that's far from the reason why people idolise him, he was your typical geeky underdog who transformed himself and his way of life.

    He will never have the same impact that Arnold had in terms of his physique, but it's not an overstatement to say he influenced a generation and changed the face of contemporary bodybuilding (for better or worse).

    That's where his trolling antics prevailed, he said time and time again it was all just a persona.

    I don't know. I don't go on there. I only know about zyzz through the internet though (sites like TSR). I've never heard anyone in real life talk about him.

    Hmm, not convinced but you seem to know more than I do so I'll take your word for it.

    "He's not an *******, he just acts like one"

    I didn't say it was cool, my initial response only looked at his more philosophical approach to life (i.e. being kind to others, being the best you can be and pursuing ambitions).

    You telling me a few cheeky comments he made in jest will negate his overall character? Trolling is about rustling jimmies, it seems as though your jimmies have been rustled.

    I don't really know about him specifically, my point was that being an ******* and having the persona of an ******* aren't really two different things.

    He never said he was nice, but he was interesting as a person.
