Why is Scooby Always Shirtless?
I get this question all the time. I’m not showing off, in fact, I’m kinda embarrassed about it because there are about 10,000 bodybuilders with better physiques on YouTube. So why? To show I practice what I preach! Would you trust my advice as much if I didn’t keep myself in top shape all year long? If I were fat would you listen to my advice on nutrition and cardio? If I wasn’t muscular and strong, would you listen to my workout advice? If I was fat 51 weeks a year and just got lean for one week for some show, would you listen to me?
The fact that I have a pretty good body for a natural 50 year old isn’t *proof* that I know what I’m talking about but its a good indication. The fact that I have had a good physique every week in the last 30 years isn’t *proof* that I have my act together, but its a good indication. The fact that I am an active athlete outside of bodybuilding and complete in triathlons and 200 mile bike races isn’t proof that I know what I’m talking about, but its yet another indication.
The next time you see a personal trainer who is covered in baggy workout attire, ask yourself why. Are they hiding something? Did they just get into good shape once 10 years ago and then let their body go to pot? Everybody wants to be healthy and look their best, if they can’t do it themselves then how can they possibly teach you how to do it? Often the answer you get from them is that “I’m a certified personal trainer” or “I have a degree in XYZ”. Again, that’s great, but if they can’t keep themselves in top shape how can they possibly help you?
That’s why I do my videos shirtless, Alles Klar?
