Yea i got you, i know what you are saying the video point was not tyler but the girl that likes the chubby dude, i was making a point (not about tyler, but what he says about women thinking that when he got his body % to 8, they got a bit intimidated)... It was more about the girl in the audience. Dude, do you know how frustrated is for me to work out(i am about getting to 10% body fat) my goal is 8%. But have women tell me that they do not like ripped look, it sucks after all the hard work. But my point is just like i am not attracted to the community typical 10 (model types), my 10 is a curvy Kim kardashian type. Most girls almost i would say 50% or more if they are over 24 are not really into the ripped look. With that being said i am getting ripped cause i am doing it for me, specially for martial arts reasons. See guys judging guys looks is the problem, most dudes get fit to impress other dudes, not for women... Women like ass, chest, broad shoulders, not a big belly, but not a 6 pack either. Notice some dudes voted, remember dudes don't count. Just like dudes that think poeticklyskuak does not get women cause they do not like his look( i laugh at those dudes). When i show his videos to women, they all love him. Anyways here:
First I know this is completely out of topic but for the way he talks, I have the feeling that tyler has never been close to 13% body fat, I think he went once or twice to the gym, read some forums on the internet and created his own story in his head about girls reacting to his 8% body fat....
Second my experience with girls and gym is that the image that they have in their head of a fit person and a ripped person is completely different as ours... I remember a friend recommending her girlfriend to do some weights to get a better body and she saying no because she taught that immediately she would get the body of a professional bodybuilding.
For me most actors that appear on the movies with a six pack are already ripped, for the girls I know and I've asked they are just fit... for them a ripped guy is a professional bodybuilder. They do not know the work and time that it requires to become like that and they like you better now than if you get the body of a professional bodybuilder. So do not pay much attention to what they say, get below 10% they'll still love it.
Third I totally agree if you want to get ripped, or to earn a lot of money, or to get a PhD, or to get many girls it should always be for yourself and never to try to get acceptance, admiration or recognition from others...
I am not big in conspiracy theories, there is a video of tyler without the shirt somewhere taking pics, what he saying matches my experience... And i can only go by that, i don't care about is this dude legit, is he exagerating, is that bs. All i care about is what the dude is saying does it match my references experiences in the field or not... Women know the difference between ripped and Body builder(meat head), google do women like a 6 pack, you will see half of the women do more than half don't... For example there are dudes that like model type women, i don't, i would not even get hard with a girl like Angelia jolie or whatever she is not my type. With that being said, if you enjoy being ripped(and i do, even though my gf does not like it)... Do what you want, i am getting ripped anyways.
