So some guys are actually suffering from this problem but they don't actually even know they are going through it. I'm gonna talk to you about real actual body dysmorphia.

What's going on brother? My name is Kai, and if you have any questions for me, the best way to reach me is the link to my email.

You can easily find that link in the description. You click on that, it takes you to my proton mail and makes sure you check on your side as well, because I'm gonna be responding back through voice. So when it comes to body dysmorphia, the normies and the pheasants and the Nattys, they don't really see it as a big deal. because they're not really prone to that. The moment.

Even for myself, the moment I touch Gear, oh dude, that's when the day to where I never feel like I'm big, I never feel like I'm shredded, I never feel like I'm doing good enough because the moment I touch Gear, my standard goes way high, and I do suffer from body dysmorphia. I talked to you about it before, every time I start to cut, I feel like no, no, no, no, no, you're getting too small.

Don't go through a full cutting cycle because you're gonna get way too small. I have a fear of going back to my old ways of being 135 pounds. That is my biggest fear. And there's some guys out there who have the complete opposite. They're doing really well. They're progressing, they're looking shredded, I'm looking at their progress pictures.

Kai there's something wrong man, I don't know what's going on, I feel the Gear working, I'm getting the strength I'm getting, but I don't see the changes. And I'm thinking oh my God, this type of way of thinking, body dysmorphia is actually real when it comes to a good amount of guys, and they actually suffer from it, because some of the guys that I train, I am looking at them, I'm like dude, how do you not see yourself progressing? You're 170 pounds when I met you, you're not 230 pounds solid? 

Do you somehow still think you haven't improved? Are you freaking kidding me? So yeah, that is real. Now, the best way to address this, because there's just no way, nobody's gonna tell you you have body dysmorphia, you are not even going to tell yourself, you have body dysmorphia. The best way to actually go around this and work through it and see your actual progress and results is by taking data and keeping track of it. The best one, obviously is pictures.

When it comes to the actual image of it, the aesthetics of it, even though it's a bulking agent, it doesn't aromatize, but I'll get to that in a minute when it comes to the post cycle therapy stuff, it doesn't aromatize.

But I tell my guys all the time, take a before picture, take a halfway between your cycle picture, and then a post picture after your cycle on every single one of them.

Even on a cruise, even on post cycle therapy, picture is the biggest thing that do not lie. Can we go off by body fat? Sure. Can we go off by the scale? Sure. But the only ultimate way to really do this is by taking progress pictures, because that's the only way. Our body fat could go up and down, our weight could go up and down because we're gaining muscle, losing body fat, and all of that stuff.

But the only way to tell really for sure is by actually taking progress pictures, then it's undeniable, then it's undeniable. Now the other part too is this. Some guys have such a bad thing of body dysmorphia, even when they're looking at pictures, I talked to one of my guys recently, he's like, Kai, are you blind? It doesn't look like I've changed. I'm like, dude, you have abs, your shoulders are capped. 

I'm looking at your before pictures and you look nowhere near like that, how do you not see this? So another thing to do is this, even when I was teaching in high school and consulting for colleges, sometimes I'm so close to my goal, I'm looking at the entire project way too closely, I got to get somebody else to look at the actual progress themselves, meaning I have to have a another person to actually look and assess the project or the progress. 

So I check out all the guys like hey dude, what do you think about this? What do you think about this part right here? What do you think about my progress picture from here? Do you see changes? What are your critiques? So don't be afraid to ask your girl, to ask your friends, to ask anybody in terms of your actual progress, because the way we look at our progress, our standards are so high that we're looking at it like this, right?

Like literally like this, we cannot see the bigger picture like, oh my God, that's right, we did change, I do look a lot better. But we're so harsh in ourselves, which is, don't view that as a bad thing. We want to be the harshest critique for our progress and our body because there's nobody else that's going to do that. Nobody. 

Your mom is gonna love you for who you are. Your girl doesn't even want you to change, because she's afraid of you leaving her because you're looking so good. So everybody's always going to tell you, you look good, you look amazing, oh my God. You're the only person to be real hard on yourself for the sake of progression.

Now that's a good thing. But sometimes we got to have a realistic way of looking at ourselves as well man. Best way, progress pictures and on top of that, have your friends do it, have your girl do it, have somebody else to where they have a different set of eyes to look at your progress. Now, start taking measurements. You don't have to be Dorian Yates about it and take measurements every single day.

That to me, it's just a little bit too socially awkward. You're not going to grow half an inch or quarter of an inch, and even if you do on a day to day basis, that's just too much, it's not realistic. But take measurements, take measurements, take a note also on your clothing as well. Did you go from small to medium? Did you go from medium to large? Did you go from large to extra large? 

On top of that your suits, your suits are always going to change as well. Were you a 46 large before? Are you now down to 44? Were you 48 down to 42, whatever it is. Your waistline, start taking a mental note or actually writing it down. Your clothes are the main things that's going to tell you you're progressing as well. Because ultimately, that's part of our image, you're not going to walk around naked. I mean, maybe you do, I do in my house. 

But ultimately, in terms of your clothes, they are what you're showing to the public, that is your image. So that is absolutely part of the progress as well. Mental notes, write everything down, so that way, even if we do have body dysmorphia, which I absolutely embrace, it's not a bad thing at all. To me, I call that standards. What normies have, they don't have that, they don't have body dysmoprhia because they just accept the pathetic looking physique no matter what it is.

They're just happy for their heart, they're all about the whole acceptance movement. I'm not, I want to progress all the freakin time. So that's the best way, track your progress, pictures, data, measurements, third party to check out how you're progressing, everything you can do and be realistic. If you are sucking at your progression, hey, it is time to tell yourself I kind of dropped the ball on the cycle, let me do better. 

But if you're actually making real substantial gains within that cycle, give yourself, if you could reach it, give yourself a pat on the back as well if you are actually doing a good job. 

Don't be too hard on yourself when you're actually making good real progress. You've earned it. Anyways, email, right in the description. Other than that boys, Kai here, out. Take care.
