    They "solved" it by looking up the knowledge compiled on the internet by those autists over the span of 10-15 years.
    Also /fit/ is that way –>

      42yo boomer here. Back when I was a zoomer I was getting drunk 3-4 nights a week + occasional ketamine, ecstasy pills, coke and l looked anorexic. I didn’t even know how to eat food. At least these zoomers today are doing something and are on the right track. Very few of my peers went to the gym at all either back then. I didn’t develop good exercise habits til I was in my late 20s. Wish I started earlier and knew to make better use of free time in my youth

    Yeah, all advices online wouldn’t let you do this pro tip:
    train your muscle to failure. And heck, shit is very hard. Most dudes/zoomies in the gym are too sissy to do it.
    Also knowledge will never fix your social anxiety. We all know them, the zoomer group in the gym blocking my next machine, talking too much in the rest time, doing high volume, sissy workouts. Each of them are too afraid to go alone to the gym.

    No. I knew all the same shit back when I was in college. I even knew about esoteric shit like earthing. The only difference between us and zoomers is that some of them have this deeply Darwinian mentality about getting fit thanks to social media whereas for us it was kind of desirable but not essential.

    If zoomers "solved" fitness, then why are they the fattest gayest dumpiest generation in recorded history? They have all the information in the world available to them, but still can’t be bothered to take care of themselves.

      44 year old boomer here (technically genX but whatever), what I’ve observed over the years:
      Boomers/genX: vanity on men was frowned upon. Being perceived as if you cared about how you looked (besides a bare minimun of hygiene and being presentable) was cause for mockery, so even if you did, you kept it to yourself. This included going to the gym with the purpose of looking good. Most people at the gym were training to improve at other sports, like martial arts.
      Millenials: with the popularizaton of metrosexuals, men wete allowed to publicly care about their apperance. This led to more guys going to the gym just to look good, the aesthetics crew and eventually the sexcore thing. Percentage og gym-goers increased.
      Zoomers: The next step, due to social media. Being buff is now a normal thing, more dudes go to the gym with increased standards, which in turn lead to an increase of roid usage.
      While not all zoomers go to the gym, I’d say in percentage more young zoomers lift weights than any previous generation.

    if you believe statistics then they are mostly obese or terribly skinnyfat, online fitness is not really all that huge compared to online spaces in general, but even then, maybe its just extremely online zoomers basically living through it vicariously, just because they are into it doesn’t mean they have the discipline and motivation

    most likely the hype will die in half a decade again and then nobody knows shit anymore except the spergs that stay dedicated. fitness really comes in cycles, nobody was lifting in the 90s and early 2000s, but the 70s and 80s were very mainstream.

      yeah use of PEDs seems less taboo these days but then maybe it was never that big of a deal for the real serious gym heads back in the days and I was just an untrusted person.
