Arjun, not the one holding back, made his point on the subject known and wrote, “So, according to people like you, being in good shape is just making cuts in your body. The shift in mindset, the ability to appear and push hard, smile during the session, and eat Clean food, discipline in adversity, make every session count and improve your actual health, strength, posture, and ability to push. It’s not the point of work, right? We should all just look at your display picture. That’s a sad way to look at fitness. And when It comes down to that mentality, I can stand up to criticism and respond head-on. I don’t need to hide behind a picture of a torso.”
