Title: Bostin Loyd Now With MuscleSport Mag
Post by: Joe Pietaro on April 30, 2015, 10:02:40 AM
Yesterday we announced that Zack "King" Khan had joined MuscleSport Magazine and on the heels of that have more great news. We now welcome Bostin Loyd as the latest name on our kick-ass hardcore roster and he will be writing a monthly column in the print magazine and on the website.

Here's his first online piece and he will also have one in the upcoming Spring 2015 print issue:

 This kid's writing skills are atrocious. I have no idea how he managed to graduate high school. It's painful to read. I stopped after he used "contribute" in place of "attribute".

Joe
U fucked up big time with this kid
He is hated in the industry
Has no respect for anyone
Has accomplished nothing
His body sucks
He will bring nothing to your magazine
He will turn people away from wanting to buy your mag
He's known to be a curse to anyone who signs him
He's very shady
His writing skills are god awful
What were you thinking??? What is wrong with you?
Will bad mouth anyone even you
By having him featured in your mag you are pretty much setting yourself up to a disaster with him
He will fuck you over any way he can
He has no respect for you or what u believe in

Bostin has a huge following and loyal fan base. The bodybuilding industry has turned from the IFBB pros being the most popular to people like Bostin, Rich Piana and Marc Lobliner (who is also part of our staff).

Look at it from a business perspective - most the IFBB pros have been dropped by the bodybuilding publications because they did not give a good ROI. The vast majority of them did not promote themselves nor the magazine but the names that I mentioned are all over social media and gaining new followers every day.

Someone such as Bostin has a younger following and those are the ones who walk around all day tapping that iPhone. (Any fellow parents of teenagers know exactly what I'm talking about.) All of those result in website hits and that can be parlayed into advertising dollars.

Bodybuilding is not just the contest aspect of it, but the entire lifestyle, as well.

Joe has a point. He's in the business of selling products and it makes sense to target a specific audience. No matter what he does or whom he hires the people of GetBig will not buy his products. This is a very anti-supplement board. Working in supplement stores for many years (Vitamin World and Vitamin Shoppe) the biggest consumers were young adult males. Many of whom get a lot their money from their parents. They're from BB.com and buy  into the hype. You might think it's stupid and believe they are all suckers but the fact is there's big money in the supp industry and a lot of people are getting rich.

There's no way to satisfy everyone in a certain industry. The Denver Broncos drafted Shane Ray after he was arrested for possession of pot less than a week before the draft & if I were an NFL GM, I wouldn't have even brought a loser like that in as an undrafted FA.

But he was what they call a 'good value pick' at 23 since he was expected to be a top-10 guy before the incident. If he matures and takes his pro career seriously, the guy may end up being a steal.

So Bostin is not everyone's cup of tea. That doesn't bother me in the least bit and I feel that he can bring in a completely different demo, ie: younger readers, that may not have been exposed to my magazine without his involvement.

Bostin can tell us how to look worse by taking more. How to look pregnant, how to take embarrassing photographs. And how to make very bad personal decisions (getting married so young). All things that we already know enough of on here.

Joe, you call guys who smoke weed losers, but you need to get with the times. Weed is harmeless, would prefer my guys party on weed than alcohol.

Good luck with the mag, you are doing this in the wrong era. I totally wold have bought that mag way back in the day. I sure hope you're not investing cash from your family so some crazy shit like that.

I guess Bostin is your last shot to elevate the mag in the spot light. Here's the thing... The guys his age don't buy magazines. When will you understand that???

If they want Bostin's advice, they will go on his site or FB page.

I suppose that you overlooked the post where I pointed out that the magazine (which is a quarterly and hardly a money pit) is the bridge to the website. I know better than most people how the print industry has taken multiple hits due to the Internet from working in it for over a decade. So I am not putting all my eggs in that basket, but rather just having it as one arm, - albeit, a small one - of my company's message.

And the magazine is also available via an online version, so it is not the print aspect of it that we are even focusing on.

So I don't know where you get your brick wall idea from, as well as the stupid and stubborn remarks.

But you're certainly entitled to your opinion and I respect it.

"Everyone now is trying to be a coach with little to no knowledge"

"Social media has created a hope for everyone to think they can compete and half-ass it"

"but the constant attention whoring and people trying to be something they are not is single handedly ruining it for true competitors."

When you see his print article, a lot of the criticism and confusion as to this inaugural topic will all make total sense. I don't want to ruin it by giving the details, but this online piece was almost like a Part 1 of the total package.

Thanks, Ronnie. That's exactly the feel that I am going after with the old MD. That's what I got hooked on back then and want to even one-up what Blechy had since he had a say in what went on and surely capped it. I want these outspoken guys to be themselves and not be a shaky fuck like he is.

That's right, promote some total clown who is making an effort to kill himself through insane drug abuse and who hasn't achieved jack-all as a bodybuilding competitor.

Unreal.

Thank satan I decided to ditch this ridiculous industry as a career.

Does he have an exceptional physique? Is he capable of incredible feats of strength and/or performance? Does he have any appreciable writing skill, whatsoever?

It truly is the era of celebrity for folks who have basically nothing to offer in the way of a marketable talent.

It has been around since 2008 and this has been the best year by far in only the first quarter and change. So I don; think that you will get "your wish." And why do you give a fuck so much about if I can stay afloat and what the other writers may or may not be thinking?

Read the Loyd piece. It's execrable: full of grammatical errors and non sequiturs.
The funny part is how the author can be subsumed under all of his false dilemmas.

Critical judgment: Foolish guru is followed by greater-fool acolytes. Don't bother reading.

Noted some grammatical errors but what were the non sequiturs?

That's right, promote some total clown who is making an effort to kill himself through insane drug abuse and who hasn't achieved jack-all as a bodybuilding competitor.

Unreal.

Thank satan I decided to ditch this ridiculous industry as a career.

Does he have an exceptional physique? Is he capable of incredible feats of strength and/or performance? Does he have any appreciable writing skill, whatsoever?

It truly is the era of celebrity for folks who have basically nothing to offer in the way of a marketable talent.

Loyd "argues" that social media has led to the fall of bodybuilding, but the conclusion he draws about bodybuilding's current malaise does not follow from his stated premises. He begins by pulling out of his soiled underpants the non-verifiable claim that in contradistinction to when his parents competed, when "95% of the competitors were extremely impressive Ö. nowadays you're lucky to get five percent that's [sic] impressive." Loyd attributes the decline to 5% impressiveness to premises about the negative influence of social media, with its "constant need for people to want to fit in [, competitors not competing] for themselves, but they do it for others [sic] approval [, and] most of these cases come from insecurity issues." He concludes that these factors have led to bodybuilding's deteriorating state, wherein "the sport is dying because it's not just taken seriously anymore." So let's unpack the premises as they literally appear in the piece and match them to the conclusion.

1. Bodybuilders constantly want to fit in, so they turn to social media. Therefore, only 5% of competitors are impressive and bodybuilding today is in the crapper.

2. Bodybuilding competitors seek the approval of others, so they turn to social media. Therefore, only 5% of competitors are impressive and modern bodybuilding sucks.  

3. Most of the turn to social media from 1 and 2 stem from insecurity issues, so only 5% of competitors are impressive and the contemporary sport of bodybuilding is in a state of disrepair.

As we can see, Loyd's conclusion does not follow from his stated premises (one can draw missing implications, of course, but they are still absent from the "argument"). In any case, I think that it's an impressionistic opinion piece, and a bad one. Moreover, to the author of the piece I'd ask, tu quoque much?


Oh, I see. I was sort of thinking along the same lines.

The magazine is basically an afterthought and the company's focus is on daily video content. The print magazine was never supposed to be the lead, anyway, as the digital version is free to read and has much higher numbers for obvious reasons. Our digital platforms were always key.

As far as Bostin goes, he is still one of our columnists and has fit in perfectly with our style, which is the anti-MD/FLEX.

Bostin is a controversial character but he gets people talking so that's one thing. I do appreciate his honesty too, much better than the Mike O'Hearn's treating people like they were born yesterday. Who else do you want to interview Joe? Who else do you think has interesting things to say?

Here's his first online piece and he will also have one in the upcoming Spring 2015 print issue:

Bostin actually writes his own column, as do all of the columnists in the magazine. Do I proofread it and make the necessary corrections (spelling, grammar, etc.)? Of course, but I do that for all of the articles that come in from everyone such as Lee Priest, Dr. Tony Huge, Jerry Ward and Gregg Valentino when he worked for the company.

I previously worked for FLEX and MD and did ghostwrite a bunch of pro's columns and that was basically me doing it with some input from them via a text, email or phone call. Fuck that shit; it's useless IMO and I have never done that with my own publication.

The difference between then and now is that I'm in charge instead of someone else and can call my own shots. So in my opinion, training articles written by some limp dick such as Ron Harris with a by-line of Dexter Jackson, for example, is bird cage liner and not something I would be interested in reading. Guys like Bostin don't write about that same lame crap and it would be quite the challenge to ghostwrite stuff that's in their minds, not mine.

Aside from the pictures of people, your posts look like they have been made on MS Paint by a 9 year old with ADD.

Create a brand, an image, a colour scheme and text FFS...not just a mishmash of wordart and stock backgrounds.

And something that bugged me when I had instagram - you don't have to post something everyday/mulitple times a day - you run out of shit to say very quickly and end up recycling old crap, which becomes apparent very quick.

Fair enough. We have used Instagram as sort of the 'point' platform for getting a lot of shit out there and do two, one-hour live shows every week. Used to be three with "NFL Coast-To-Coast" before we boycotted those race-baiting dicks. The IG live feeds are great for interaction with the viewers/readers.

I like to repost stuff for people who support our product as a way to give a little back.

I'm far from a social media marketing expert and learn more about this shit every day but we were able to grow our followers to a pretty respectable number in a short period of time using this strategy.

(Remember "Peak Training Journal" and early "MM2K")? I think the characters could be better, a bit more normal (James Vest, Robby Robinson, a few modern dudes, a few good legends like Robby).
I like some of those guys from the Animal vids. (McGrath, etc.)

But, keep it going, you know more than I ever would about that industry.
times are different now, people (many at least) like the freaks. Older people like me like the Dan Duchaine era of hardcore. (And of course my favorite era, late 70's).

Appreciate the kind words, bro. THX. When I first launched MSM in 2008, I had writers like Robby Robinson, Samir Bannout, John DeFendis, Ric Drasin, etc. and Bill Romanowski and Tony Mandarich from the NFL. That more mainstream approach didn't sell for shit and that's why I just kept the company as a side gig while I worked for places like FLEX and MD. But when I wanted to give it a shot full time in September 2014 (after Blechy fired me), I went in a completely different direction; one more rogue and edgy.

I was going to give it six solid months of hard work and if it didn't pay off, fold the tent and try to get another writing gig with someone else in bodybuilding or sports. But it's going on three-plus years and the company is making more money than ever before. So I'm sticking to what worked, basically.

I have a tough time disliking anyone (almost everyone) I 'meet' or read about  on the internet and simply think that a lot of this "hate" and "dislike" is a simple case of jealousy or just plain stupidity.

I've never met Bostin personally (I have met his dad in an earlier century) but I have corresponded with him and have seen some of his show-and-tell type videos over this here internet thing and I will definitely say that he is one of the most honest individuals I've ever had the opportunity to converse with inside and outside of the world of bodybuilding and the lifting of heavy things.

And believe me when I say that I have conversed intelligently with a vast number of heavy-lifters who have been mentioned on this here GetBig Board and a good number of their  responses were  less than honest ......  especially when responding publicly.

I don't know if any GetBigger can dispute the honesty of Bostin Loyd even if the out-spoken subject of his honesty is contrary to any GetBigger's personal life-style.

Many of us complain about the dishonesty of certain individuals when they deny the use or mis-use of roids  .... and hatred shortly follows, but why is an individual disliked or hated when that individual speaks with un-forked tongue and is more than willing to speak honestly about this own personal involvement with performance enhancing "stuff".

Have I missed hearing something bad about Bostin that I have no knowledge of?

Perhaps you have mistaken hate for disgust?  Given that competitive bodybuilding is all about each doper's personal impersonation of Dead Pool undergoing stress tests to cause his mutant genes to activate, most people here that are honest are just plain disgusted with these guys.

Everyone that I have spoken to who knows Bostin other than from his Internet posts all say the same thing and I concur - he's a completely different person and a good guy who is a home body, not some "Jersey Shore" type out there wreaking havoc partying in the clubs.

He and I have had 'serious' conversations, and by that I mean stuff that has nothing to do with this fucked up industry. Family-related stuff, etc. and Bostin is nothing like his online persona.

Joe Pietaro, you goading Genova with "now you're banging all these young fitness chicks" was a dirty trick on your behalf. :D You knew goddamn well he wasn't banging anything but you got Genova to make an utter fool of himself, again  :D

Although Bostin is often idiotic I never felt disgust or dislike towards him. Some people are like that, for whatever reason.

To be so successful at such a young age doing what he wants to be doing on his own terms while his critics punch a time clock eeking out a living doing a job that they hate taking orders from a bald old fatman.

Successful? 

The guy probably lives in a bedsit, hand to mouth, pouring what ever spare funds he has into the nearest syringe in the hope of feeling adequate. 

He has never, nor will he ever, make any mark on a stage (probably quite high on his goal list).

Hardly setting the world on fire is he...

The problem with todays society...people are so desperate for the supposed secrets or short cuts, they gravitate to losers like BL, Dr T et al.

With the global fitness boom these twats are becoming more and more prevelant.

A toxic combination of social media granting instant 'celebrity', retards looking for a quick fix, and as you say, charlatans out there to capitalize.

You sure about that? I think you might want double check that claim. He has a ton of fans and is doing quite well. He bought a house at only 23 years of age when most here were still living off mommy and daddy at that age.

Bostin has done quite well for himself and is a very different person away from what his Internet persona is.

Muscle Sport Magazine.

Where are these rags sold? I don't think I've seen a muscle magazine
sold in a retail store in years.

For the record; I rather have Bostin on staff over some loser "pro" bodybuilder.

- Block!

Newsstand sales are a joke, with the publisher making mere pennies on the dollar and incurring high distribution and circulation costs. So I just do direct sales off the website (subscriptions and single issues) and focus on promoting the digital version.

And Bostin is way more interesting than a ghost written column "by" a pro; couldn't agree with you more.

Oh a ton of fans.  How sucessfull, I'm sure they will all come to his aid when he's in need.  Interesting thing 'online fans', ever seen a so called 'click factory' in China?

And a house at 23?

Jezzzus holy christ, the man is my idol!

I owned my own gym and house at 23...not something I put on my CV like...

Joe, no need to defend yourself, I get your mag and actually like it, last of a dying breed.

(Remember "Peak Training Journal" and early "MM2K")? I think the characters could be better, a bit more normal (James Vest, Robby Robinson, a few modern dudes, a few good legends like Robby).
I like some of those guys from the Animal vids. (McGrath, etc.)

But, keep it going, you know more than I ever would about that industry.
times are different now, people (many at least) like the freaks. Older people like me like the Dan Duchaine era of hardcore. (And of course my favorite era, late 70's).
Your Mag still has a lot to offer.


I was the managing editor of Peak Training Journal.

Well, if you own your own business and home at only 23 years old then you are an exception. Good for you. But even you know that you were in a small minority. That still doesn't take away from Bostin's achievements. Fact is, he has quite a following of paying clients. I know because I have an acquaintance that used his services and from what Bostin charges he's only need about 10 clients to make a decent living.

But I get it. You don't like him even though you've never met him and only go by his internet persona. I've never met him either and judging by his internet persona it's neither here nor there. Doesn't push any buttons for me. He has manage to make a living doing something he loves. That's an even greater achievement than what he owns or how much he makes.

I don't go on blast and cruise anymore.

and the fact you are taking pride in busting a dealer just solidifies that you are a snitch, and only a snitch who sells drugs would snitch on another drug dealer.

You should keep quiet about it to be honest.

Fair enough. We have used Instagram as sort of the 'point' platform for getting a lot of shit out there and do two, one-hour live shows every week. Used to be three with "NFL Coast-To-Coast" before we boycotted those race-baiting dicks. The IG live feeds are great for interaction with the viewers/readers.

I like to repost stuff for people who support our product as a way to give a little back.

I'm far from a social media marketing expert and learn more about this shit every day but we were able to grow our followers to a pretty respectable number in a short period of time using this strategy.

Over the past year or so I've became a huge Gary Vaynerchuk fan. I've implemented about 90% of what he suggests and during the HS/College/Pro offseason as well as our NFL/Pro-day combine we have damn near tripled during those times. As YOU know a few weeks ago I started branding myself using most of the social media platforms using the methods suggested by him.
