With the reveal of fake weights being used for photo shoots of your favorite bodybuilders and fitness personalities, it’s become increasingly hard to tell the real ones from the fakes — I’m talking about both the weights and the people using them.
Fake weights are cool and all but you can’t help but point out the by using fake weights, you’re lying to the masses. What is it with fake weight and steroid users claiming the opposite of their truth?
Guy uses steroids, he claims natty. Guy uses fake weights, claims they’re real.
What is this world coming to?
Recently, a female lifter (possibly Brazilian, definitely South American) was called out on using fake weights in her training videos. The woman would squat over 500 pounds for reps — not two or three reps, but in excess of eight. Get real.
Recently, Marc Lobliner called out an Insta fitness celebrity on the amount of weight that he hauls around. Brad Castleberry is the “celebrity” in question.
If you head over to his Insta page, you’ll see that he stands around with a loaded bar on his back. The bar is loaded with 45’s, all the way. How many people do you know who can chill like that? Maybe Eddie Hall or Brian Shaw.
Lobliner breaks it down in a little more detail, so have a look at the video and decide for yourself.
After seeing the video, what do you guys think? Is Brad using fake weights or is he just hella strong? Let us know in the comments!
