1 huge difference i noticed on

Anyone else been here since the early 2010s?

I remember a lot more people back 10-15 years ago on IST caring way more about being lean/shredded, and there was always multiple threads talking about getting shredded, their progress on getting shredded, their success in getting shredded, tons of people posting how shredded they got this year, etc

Have you noticed that is all but gone now?

I notice this to in real life, I used to see way more shredded guys in the early-mid 2010s, rarely see them now. I was like one of 20 or so shredded guys at my gym in 2015, now Im the only one

      Its not a meme, its just hard.

      Getting shredded is literally one of the FEW things a natty lifter can actually achieve..... which is funny because Im assuming youre claiming its not?

      Like legit.... theres no point trying to perma-bulk and gain tons of muscle as a natural because you LITERALLY CANNOT gain anywhere near as much muscle as a steroid user.....

      But natties can still get shredded..... its not like you need drugs to get shredded in the same way you NEED steroids to gain tons of extra muscle mass.

      The fact stands, getting shredded is achievable for every single natural lifter. Where as gaining tons of muscle IS NOT.

        It’s a meme because it’s stupid not because it’s unachievable. A “shredded” natty will look dyel outside of instagram pictures and will have low energy and low T. As a natural you should ideally find a bf % you feel comfortable at and maintain that. Going below the the 10-15% range is moronic

        Post your “shredded” physique. I’m talking about actually “shredded” not “I’m 12% bf with abs and a bicep vein”

        you need carbs and fat though. This isn't about getting shredded one time for like 2 weeks. This isn't about some homosexual ass bodybuilding show. It's about building a lifestyle that allows you to maintain leanness and flex on powershitters 24/7

    Yeah. Zyzz was big, but the focus on his looks was way more about how cut he was. I don’t see nearly as many threads focusing on specific muscle insertions, fewer threads where anons are bemoaning their ab structure, and basically 0 stimulant stack/dnp type threads.

    literally the opposite. everyone is nowadays obsessed with "looking shredded" where as back in the days it was all about chasing numbers and powerlifting. you "werent allowed" to wear a tank top if you benched less than 2pl8 and didnt have x inch biceps etc. thats all gone out the window, everyone at the gym is 60kg shredded dyel.

      Lmao not fricking true at all

      Yes there was SS autism on here but it was nothing compared to the shredded era

      And what are you even talking about? Powerlifting is right now as big as it’s even been, the amount of shredded sick c**ts has fallen off a cliff because people don’t have the attention span to stick to a cut get shredded anymore

        this is why the leanpill is gaining strength now, fitness is cyclical
        Getting shredded with a decent level of muscle mass is all you need to set yourself apart, look at up and coming youtubers like K boges for example- millions of views because normie cattle think doing some calisthenics occasionally will get them a shredded 8% bf physique

    I weren't around back then but would reckon it's a consequence of the split it fitness styles. Powerfattys spouting shit about "victim weight" and homosexuals and troons striving for weird skinny and big ass gay physiques. Coomer and keto Vs vegan moronation shitting up the catalogue probably didn't help either. It's also hard as hell to get big and shredded without roids so maybe the newer generations aren't as dedicated as the previous ones. From personal experience, I KNOW I'm shredded and at the upper levels of otter mode but while I'm bombarded with compliments irl and anywhere else on the internet, dyels and fat fricks refusing to post body immediately tell me to eat more when I post on this mind-broken board so maybe more shredded sick c**ts just don't bother posting after the first or second time. Would be cool if it came back tbh
