Posting fitness pictures on Facebook.
How do you feel about posting fitness pictures on Facebook? I have posted pictures of me posing shirtless a couple of times on Facebook and the reaction I got for my friends was shock. Not shock in a good way, more like I can't believe you would post something so indecent. Of course my reason for posting such a picture is to say hey I'm 49 years old and I'm still in great shape, what happened to you? Of course I don't actually say that. How do you feel about posting fitness pictures on social media other than forums such as this? Is it tasteless and inappropriate? I want to post this picture as my profile picture to Facebook but I don't know if I dare or should.

i don't do it, i did a few pictures for log's on this site back in the day and swore i'd never do it agian...it just seems weird to me, however if i'm at the beach or playing frisbee on a hot day without a shirt on and someone posts the picture, i don't go crazy and flip out

I wouldn't do it. I don't want some creepy old homo Facebook-stalking me the way I Facebook-stalk chicks at the gym.

It kills me that people can post obscene amounts of pictures of their kids or pictures of them with a drink in their hand & a fish face on their lips yet when someone is proud of taking care of their bodies they get crazy!!! I am 47 & I post pics all the time...plus I have a bodybuilding journal that i use to show progress while preparing for a show. This way people can opt in if they want to support me. But what I tell everyone is if you don't like want I post unfriend me or hide my posts from your newsfeed. It's MY wall & I put what I want there. If ya don't like what's on TV ya change the channel!!!! Great job by the way!!!

Well I think it's safe to say the boomers lost their sense of humility
So you feel good about yourself. Now ask yourself why do you care to share it on Facebook for everyone to see? So everyone else can feel good for you?
/hashtag attention plz
Now post a shot at the beach with your family and your shirt off. A fun memory is different than a "look at me" pic

Now take your picture. I'm pretty ****ing sure you see yourself in the mirror every single day. There's nothing new, and people already know you're in good shape. So why would you strut it in their face?
Now think of this for example. If you had a fat picture of you 3 years ago and did a side-by-side so people could see the difference, would the reactions be completely different?
One shows hard work and something shockingly new. The other just says "hey check me out, I'm fuking awsome"

People are too sensitive, post whatever you want. If they don't like it they can hide it. I promise I hide or unfriend people when they are constantly posting crap I don't want to see.

I dont know who this OnionKing character is but post what the hell you feel like. Dammit, if you feel good about yourself then so be it. Facebook is social media, a way to socialize what the hell you feel like talking about. Yeah, if it says look at me, who the f cares. Be proud your not in a got damn hospital bed fighting for your life. If you don't want to see what he has to post, move on. Bodybuilders, power lifters, crossfitters all have pictures shirtless, so why does it matter that you want to. OnionKing must have a social issue with people on AM which is why he has an issue with you and your question. Post what the hell you feel like and be proud.
Lets Say you do everything that you are supposed to do. You check all the boxes. You Believe, you prepare, you work, you fight, and you know your why, and Life still catches you on your blindside..... Just remember Failure Is Never Final !!!!

I see no harm in it every now and again. I put pictures up after my first comp. I said it was a major life acheivement for me and if anyone wanted to look at the pictures here they were. No harm in that. Secretly everyone is jealous if you are in shape.

Honestly, how can you bust your ass day after day in the gym and not want to show it off a bit every once in a while? If you painted a wonderful picture or built a statue would it be inappropriate to post it on facebook? Would it be bragging showing everyone you can draw better than them? If you work hard for something take some pride in it and screw the haters. Just don't be posting nudes every single day. That's just narcissistic.
