    Default GoFundMe for Bodybuilding & Fitness Competitors? Iron Rage

    Are bodybuilders, fitness competitors, and gym enthusiasts taking advantage (borderline abusing) GoFundMe? Dave Palumbo and John Romano rage about this on the latest episode of Iron Rage.

    The two argue while anyone is within their rights to put up a GoFundMe campaign, is it right to launch a campaign to - for example - have people pay for their monthly supplements, when there are other GoFundMe campaigns out for much more serious needs?

    It's Iron Rage (powered by Yamamoto Nutrition), on RXMuscle.com.

    When in doubt, get bigger.

    It is screwy - to the point made, it's probably mostly friends & relatives who want to support their loved one, but I also think it speaks a lot about the person asking for money and their intentions & expectations. I keep thinking about Arnold's story about coming over to the US with about $20 - obviously different times, but the "entitlement" era sure seems to be alive and well. Given I've paid for all of my own preps, training, suits, etc. for decades, I'm probably not going to be throwing money at someone else.

    Just sell juice. Proven successful for most bodybuilders I know.

    Never thought of a GoFundMe account. Might be the easy way to go.

    Instead, I just work a full-time job and have a side job working in clubs to fund my bodybuilding gear and supps.

    Go fund me? What's Next? How about Go lift for me? Or maybe go Go diet properly for me? These people are pathetic.

    Half these gofukme accounts are asking for $5,000

    Wtf do they need $5k for ??

    Npc card $125
    Entry fee avg $80
    Guys trunks $30

    So aside from igf and hgh where they spending $5k on a local show

    Even if you travel to nationals and got a plane and hotel that might be $1,500 max in travel

    So everyday these fools already buy food but now they want strangers to pay for food drugs and probably rent on their apartments

    For fuk sake people are lazy today
