If you lift weights and increase muscle size to impress others and leave a good impression, we have some bad news. A nationwide survey consisting of over 18,000 people have suggested that 46% of people have a negative view of bodybuilding, and have a dislike for the concept of weightlifting.
23% of people believe bodybuilders are arrogant and narcissistic, 9% feel that gaining muscle mass is pointless and 14% of people think bodybuilders looks unattractive. The remaining 54% either did not have any opinion on bodybuilding or were favourable towards the sport.
Some of the survey participant’s comments suggested that bodybuilders are self-absorbed and are vain. One anonymous voter said “bodybuilders are like girls with implants and excessive make up, they care too much about their looks and ego.
