The Superhero Fallacy and Optimal Conditions

We have all seen Chris Pratt, Chris Evans or Chris Hemsworth in a Marvel movies and have lusted, been jealous or both when we seem their superhuman physique. As someone who works out, and has worked out fairly consistently for most of my adult life, I have never been able to look anywhere near that and at times, it has discouraged me greatly.

Yes, ladies, we dudes do feel insecure when you start drooling over dudes, just like you do, when we do it to the ladies. 

The thing I want to get across to everyone out there, is yes you could look like those guys, if you had the conditions they have, but that is the thing, we don't. Most if not all of those actors are well off, they can afford nutritionists and personal chefs to make optimal diets, not just for working out, but the stage of the workout they are in. Just take a look at what Chris Pratt had and did.

In addition to being able to have perfect nutrition, they have the time and are paid to be in this kind of shape. Most of us, might have an extra hour per day to work out, instead of 3 or 4 per day. We also don't have former navy seals designing our workouts.  

This post is not to discourage, but to uplift. Do the best you can and be the best you, while knowing that if you had the optimal conditions you could be Thor, Cap or Star Lord
