Default Have you ever lied about/exaggerated your lift numbers on the internet?

Poll is ANONYMOUS

Simple yes or no. I've always been curious to know what sort of proportion of bodybuilders will admit to having done so.

So have you ever done it? And, if you're willing to go beyond the anonymity of the poll, then care to divulge your reasons?

No good reason to lie to yourself.

No temptation. Chubby old lady so even if my lifts were good 99%+ of the population could care less.

Would like to get my daughter interested in some kind of sport though. At 11 she is about my height, about 25 pounds lighter, and can pick me up which she gets a kick out of.

What I often see claimed on the internet and what I actually see in gyms are two completely different things.

Exactly! I honestly think a lot of claims online are outright fantasy land! Not only that, but the fantasy encourages others to do the same. "If HE can bench 150kg for reps, certainly I can too. My internet lifts are epic"

Never posted numbers to start with....

Maybe a follow up poll up to see if anyone lied in this poll about lying?
