    My gym (Golds in Lakeridge VA) had a display like that a few months ago, except with "20 pounds" of artificial fat.

    It was so fucking disgusting I amped up the cardio for about a month at the thought that I was carrying that around.

    Needs something else in the pic for scale

    I always heard 1lb of muscle is the size of a golf ball but 1lb fat is the size of a large orange

    Dunno if that's accurate or not :dunno:

    When I "look" bigger in clothes, it's more of the yellow stuff. No thanks.

    think of your quad when it's pumped and there you have it.

    thats how alot of those coaches get those massive gains in 6 weeks or whatever, they get a fat, but muscly guy who has worked out for years, cut 30 pounds of fat off him, and all of a sudden, he's swole.
