He's cultivating mass

ID: hd1gg5o

Try to move me bro.

Also maybe it's to stop cultivating and start harvesting.

ID: hd0454u

Stop saying that dude, and if you are stop cultivating and start harvesting!

his fatness is starting to effect our entire crew

You want some insulin, dude?

Thor almost drank the entire sea of Midgard, the dude isn't gonna be slender

ID: hd29lyy

He once ate an entire ox along with eight salmon and washed it all down with three barrels of mead

ID: hd2hca1

So Thor eats as much as yo momma. Got it.

“Powerlifter Thor” is honestly the best way to describe his look

ID: hd0lb77

Halfthor Bjorson mod when???

ID: hd1bs4n

Martins Licis is more accurate imo.

ID: hd2fojy

First thing I thought was 'older, fatter Modi'.

This is the ideal male body. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance looks like

ID: hd1yw8y

When i heard "peak male performance" my head immediately go to this meme

ID: hd4df5b

The full quote from the article leads me to believe that the power lifter in question is slyly referencing this meme:

"Like it or not, God of War's Thor is the peak of male performance," McCormac told The Sixth Axis.

Makes sense to me. I started running (and eating less) and lost 50 lbs. Overall I feel much better but I can’t lift nearly as much as I used to!

ID: hd0cac9

Same here. Used to train a lot before the pandemic and haven't done a true lift since February last year. Been just eating healthy and some everyday activity and have lost 30lbs the past 12 months. I really do feel that my muscles have weakened over the course of the pandemic. I don't play any sports anymore though so I'd rather keep losing weight than being able to bench what I used to

ID: hd0mxg1

Body fat does not directly make you stronger. Anyone who thinks this is categorically mistaken. Muscle moves bones. Not fat.

The only way that fat tissue can strengthen a human being is simply due to the extra work that different skeletal muscles must use in order to carry that body around through their typical daily activities. That means that a fatter human walking around will naturally develop stronger leg musculature.

This will not result in appreciably greater strength in the pectorals major muscles (chest muscles), which are the primary movers in a bench press. This is because a heavier human doesn’t often have to push themselves up from a prone position; typically they’d use hip flexors and abdominals, in conjunction with momentum to raise themselves up, and then stand up using their legs.

Trenbolony sandwiches my fren.

ID: hd24evt

That's because you need to continue lifting, not just run and eat in a deficit.

This is true, don't let the gut fool you.

ID: hd327jc

Look at what the Mountain (Game of Thrones) or what Bane (The Dark Knight Rises) looked like. Yeah they had a belly, but that was because that was pure fucking muscle. They would snap a bitch in half.

The gut is to provide them the core strength to do insane lifts.

Til I’m the peak of male performance

9 : Anonymous2021/09/15 22:09 ID: hd081o1

Honestly he fits his lore, Thor is strong as fuck even by god standards but his appetite is just as massive, of course he'd have some extra heft to him.

ID: hd1b6k1

Especially if he feels like he's already defeated all of his enemies and has grown a little lazy or glutenous as of late.

10 : Anonymous2021/09/15 21:06 ID: hczzbm4

Peak male performance, indeed

ID: hd09srf

It all makes sense now.

ID: hd0kw9j

You might not like it.

ID: hd1y7pw

Hahaha jack black can really move considering his size

ID: hd299dd

Now I'm sad I won't ever see him replace Chris Hemsworth...

ID: hd071re

Jack Black’s humor is underrated.

ID: hd24fow

Is it? Seems like he's been enduringly popular for the past 30 years.

Thor is a Mad Chad Dad that wants to avenge his kids.

12 : Anonymous2021/09/15 21:00 ID: hczyemp

if you think this bodytype is "fat slob", you have clearly never stepped foot inside of a Golds Gym lol

ID: hd08ynz

Def not fat slob, but powerlifters don’t exactly prioritize cardio.

ID: hd266h8

That's how the boss fight will happen: we will have to run circles around him for 2 min then bash his head while he is nearly dead from lack of cardio

ID: hd1aky8

Nobody looked like this when I went there

13 : Anonymous2021/09/15 20:19 ID: hczsa0o

Tis true. Sounds like a boss that we'll have to time our moves correctly for as Kratos is more agile. Then again, Thor can fly lol.

ID: hd02pqk

Thor can’t fly in Norse mythology. He has a Santa-like chariot to get around. So it should be a hell of a fight.

ID: hd0hi9l

Oh really, wasn't aware. Is it similar to what Kratos was using in the recent trailer with the wolves?

14 : Anonymous2021/09/15 19:50 ID: hcznrvk

Kratos: "Challenge accepted"

15 : Anonymous2021/09/16 03:53 ID: hd1eyb2

What is that actual complaint? I haven’t actually seen the first hand criticism, just everyone talking about it.

I’m not saying there isn’t any, I just haven’t been on Twitter in a while.

16 : Anonymous2021/09/16 07:27 ID: hd1x5td

My cousin does strongman competitions and looks a lot like a black version of that body type. I like to mention him when talking about the Kingpin in Marvel also. He’s like exactly what I would expect Kingpin to look like. He’s about 7 feet tall, wide as heck and can probably flip a truck by himself.

17 : Anonymous2021/09/16 09:43 ID: hd25toa

Personally I don't think it matters. Thor is a god so I assume he'd just have superhuman abilities anyways. Look at Baldur. The guy was a twig and he punched Kratos 50 feet in the air and at least twice as far away. And if you're a god and you'll have that kind of power anyways, why NOT indulge your hunger?

18 : Anonymous2021/09/16 08:19 ID: hd20gys

I just wish they gave him the slightest hint that he has pecs under those moobs. And maybe a touch of body hair so he doesn't look like a new-born.

Butterbean Thor

20 : Anonymous2021/09/15 22:21 ID: hd09ozq

Thor pounds horns of mead and eats two entire goats for dinner. Guy’s both fat AND ripped.

21 : Anonymous2021/09/15 22:59 ID: hd0enbw

Basically fat Thor from Avengers Endgame

22 : Anonymous2021/09/16 02:17 ID: hd13ub1

I think what everyone seems to be forgetting is that Thor is literally a god. He is not a human man and therefore cannot be held to human body / health measures. He is powered by magic. There's no reason to assume that his physical appearance has any bearing whatsoever on his abilities.
