    Remember to skip squats. They make your legs too big for a balanced physique.

      misc circa 2010 loved zyzz. his presence on the board was electric and his videos inspired a generation to be better. the only ones who disliked him were fat fricking neckbeard mods who resented him for the love he received and happiness he spread. in summary you should have a nice day.

    If you were around zyzz time and lifting weights back then and on IST back then - it means you were old enough to be buying bitcoin for $0.001 to $1 - you should be a billionaire right now, you are a bitcoin billionaire right? Or at least worth 9 figures, right? What about 8 figures?

    There's not really that much footage/content of zyzz. Todays fitness influencers have tons of vids on their channel and doing interviews and podcasts. They have presence on all platforms and they even do collaborations with other fitness e-celebs. A follower of todays fitness influencers and identities would feel like they know them personally on a parasocial basis.
    We really know very little about who zyzz really was.
    All we have is a few videos of him dancing like an ecstacy-tard and doing pranks at the mcdonalds drive-thru.
    But somehow zyzz has been blown up into this big thing post death with such little content comparatively speaking. Normally, a person with such little content would have been forgotten. Even bodybuilders who were popular ecelebs fitness guys, and subsequently died are quickly forgotten, such as Joesthetics.
    Also, when he was alive not that many people even knew about him apart from some forum nerds. He really became famous after he died because some people just spammed the shit out of his pics and the few videos of him dancing like a clown in his bedroom in front of his computer. Probably his brother and friends. Then it snowballed from there.
    He's basically mythical. Like with Jesus, all we have to go on is some books written 2000 years ago after he died that collects little scraps of stories about his life, puts it together and then it blows it up into this big religion over time.

        It was fun, and I loved the memery and comradeship. I HATE coombait and the nonstop pictures of semi-naked women or porn, to garner attention. I hate how little actual fitness techniques and programmes get discussed, and how everything revolves around the current eceleb drama. You could say it's always been that way, but we didn't have 'scooby versus candito war!!!' Like you do now.

          There is no evidence of surgery. No one has provided a clear timeline of when supposed surgery took place and he had the jawline as a kid. He used some makeup.

          All that photo comparison shows is the power of lighting and a smile, also he shaped his eyebrows. Whoever smoothed out the lighting intentionally made him look as bad as possible. If you look at his younger pics he looks more like the right than the left. The right is a photoshoot with makeup and perfect studio lighting.

      Zyzz brother literally created a project/campaign to push Zyzz legacy on youtube post death.

      While Zyzz was hardly a content creator on youtube. His body transformation was pretty popular on youtube(not his vid btw). He gained some notoriety in Australia for being the World of War Craft player turned chad. Nerd to jock/chad transformations like these were rare back in the days.

      Also had a pretty good following on facebook and a meme on IST predeath.
