To be honest it helps in sales. I am a roofer but when I am sitting down with home owners often they ask me about my workouts and when i tell them I compete, they start asking question like how do I lose my love handle or how do I bring my cholesterol down etc, anyhow it gets us very comfortable fast and before you know it Booooooooom "sign here" and onetimehard gets to put on a new roof, hell I have even written some of them diet and training plans for free, lol.

It can help if your personality itself is not centered around your physique. Just act as if the state of your body doesn't matter at all and they'll take you seriously. If you walk around huffing and puffing and always wearing tight shirts they'll think you're an idiot.

As someone said - it depends on your personality. I personally found that being "big" has helped me on many occasions, simply by getting some kind of an "exclusive respect" (once again - personality must go along with the physique) and thus - favours or people going out of their way to help me/offer a better way to achieve something, etc... WHen some morons here laugh that being a bodybuilder impresses males, but not females, well - there's some truth in that, for sure, but it MAY be a big advantage, as when you are dealing with various bussiness - most of the time it's males that you are dealing with and getting a respect before you even say a word in some cases is very good.

I work in law enforcement and it helps a bit. People are less likely to fuck with a guy with muscle then they are a skinny twink or fat ass.

Uberman, what's your problem with PEDs?  Is the legality? Moral issue? Abuse?
If someone wants to take their body past their natural limits I don't see a problem with it. Of course you'll have people with opinions on every spectrum of that wavelength from only natural to the more drugs the better. My only issue is the long term effects from ABUSE. Problem is with drugs, one mans use is another mans abuse.
