IFBB Pro, Mr. USA Nick Trigili recorded a recording yesterday and asked Tony Huge for a new video. I personally won't be Dr. just because he's not a doctor, and as a JD, I would never expect anyone to call me a doctor. That being said, it's a nice marketing tactic, if anything else. And that could be the biggest part of Huge, especially with his last promo round for the upcoming generation Iron-Follow-up Enhanced 2, in which Tony's experimental addition is shown from different perspectives in terms of advertising language, humor and cameo appearances of people who are larger than life – both physically and in terms of social media fanfare. Rest assured, this may seem like a DIY day-to-day routine, but I'm also sure that it has a high production value.
I get it. We are talking about a film and films have to make money. No one will rent or even buy a documentary in 2020 unless it's really something to write home about. That being said, the content and context in which it is released to the masses will also have a reaction. Interestingly, negative reactions will only increase interest in the topic by increasing word of mouth and even rental / sales. If there is something in our industry that is not scarce, it is haters. Find a successful person for me and I will find an army of haters to follow him / her. However, today's article is not about that. Nick Trigili is not a hater. He is a former Mr. USA, IFBB Pro and Contest Prep Coach. He has been taking supplements since he was young and respects Tony. he thinks he is credible and would like to meet him, but Trigili is an exception with Huge's overemphasis on drugs. Nick reports (via Enhanced 2): "As soon as this documentary comes out, we will be fucked."
Almost from the beginning of the video, Nick asked his audience what the real motive was. He talked about how many people are no longer working hard, how they are not eating properly, not exercising properly and that drugs are everything. He comes straight out and says it – Tony confirms this mindset. Trigili asks Huge: "You have so much strength, you influence so many people," he attributes to his clinical studies, but also points out that mainstream strength athletes and aspiring bodybuilders will double their doses (and do even more than theirs) Coach) tell them) to take this drug-centered approach.
However, Nick doesn't undercut the tremendous value of dietary supplements because he recognizes the great scientific innovations. In fact, he says the medication will give a blueprint that will complete proper training and nutrition. I think his main argument is that he thinks Huge is completely downplaying the importance of diet and hard work in the gym. That's why Nick said, "I was in the trenches" when he talked about everything he had to do to win the United States. This one sentence also speaks for a level of credibility that few people in the industry have. Nick became a professional and Nick competed as a professional. How many social media stars can say that? Even established, experienced personalities like Dave Palumbo cannot say that. However, this is not an attack on the equipment, just its place in the grand scheme of things.
Trigili believes the drugs create a blueprint, recognizes their key role and understands Tony's argument, he just doesn't think the average person will. This is not a disadvantage to anyone's intelligence or IQ, but most people simply don't know the intricacies of the equipment, let alone many of the obscure substances that Tony and his camp like to experiment with. I think Nick has a solid point.
I admit these are really interesting circumstances since Nick is not a natural bodybuilding fanatic. He is certainly not an opponent of PED, but he is concerned about the youth and he is concerned about people who discover the sport later in life, but also do not have the right understanding, to act too hard, too quickly. Every action always has a consequence, and unfortunately, however clever and catchy the marketing may be, some people may not be able to read between the lines before it is too late. I'm not talking about the law or liability, I'm talking about ethics. It looks like Nick has a real ethical problem with Huge.
That being said, I've seen the Enhanced 2 trailer, I've seen a lot of Tony's videos, and I have my own personal opinion on the content. Some people want to be a legendary bodybuilder like Ronnie Coleman, others a great writer like Peter McGough, and some want to be the Dan Duchaine (mad scientist for some, genius for others) of their time. A guess who Tony probably wants to be.
It's also a kind of social media world, with others before Tony who were even more on your face. Imagine what Bostin Loyd could have done if he had the vision of having Huge behind the marketing machine. Success is about having the right people at the right time, and the rest is history. But stars should also be responsible for this. Even stars should take care of it. Does Tony care? I dont know. Frankly not.
On the other hand, NIck was once with Generation Iron. What happened there? I dont know. He likes Tony, respects Tony and (as far as I know) has never publicly protested its content. He didn't throw garbage on GI either, so I don't think he's salty with it. I just think he's really worried about what inaccuracies he thinks in this documentary.
