I have a problem with that statement. Anyone that exercises to build strength is by definition a "bodybuilder." I don't walk around in a ripped T-shirt with a milk gallon full of water sporting a glowing orange tan all year 'round, but I lift hard and I lift heavy and I center my workout around the big boys:

A 5'7" 135lb bodybuilder. I don't think I'm particularly self-righteous, and my activities are far from pointless. Without them, I'd be an incredibly weak stick, wouldn't look half as good as I do now (and I still have lots of improvement to go!) and wouldn't be nearly as healthy.
Just saying. Genetics are actually overrated and everyone uses them as an excuse. The problem isn't a person's genes - it's the person. Some people may get "shredded" more easily than others but no one has genetics that keep them from getting reasonably lean to a healthy level of body fat (11-16% for a man, 20-25% for a woman).
Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
