why are they being demonetized?

I'm not trying to be rude, but who gives a fuck? Why is this only ever an issue for strength sports/bodybuilding?
Do you have the same issue with videos of Wayne Gretzky or Michael Jordan?
If you can't handle someone being stronger than you on YouTube, you should probably stop going on the internet. People are going to be better than you at stuff. That's how the world works.
Also, a 600 squat and 700 bench aren't even close to the same realm as a 550 bench.
What a shitty, defeatist attitude thread.
I'm guessing a 550 bench is harder to obtain than a 600 squat and 700 deadlift?
You're right, it is a defeatist attitude thread. Strength is a marathon, not a race. As long as I keep getting stronger, I shouldn't care that Chris Duffin deadlifts 1002#.
One of my big lifting goals in life has been to do weighted dips with 4 plates/180 lbs but it seems impossible for me. I weigh 240. Anyway I see people on YouTube do it and it makes me sad. Feel like I'm never hitting the 4 plate dip club
This is like saying watching pro sports creates unrealistic expectations for weekend athletes.
Edit: so basically what Jim said
That said, if you want a YT channel to make you feel good look me up.
Yeah but strength athletes are closer to average Joes than pro ball players are
Sure, and I'd say that it's probably more likely you can hit a 600 lb squat than get drafted by the NHL, NBA, MLB etc.
So I guess to answer the OP, no I don't think the big lifters on YouTube are setting unrealistic expectations.
There's always a bigger fish. Someone will always lift more or be better in any skill we choose. Even if you become UFC champ, age is gonna catch up to you and bring you down. We need to accept these facts and just do our own thing, without constantly looking at others.
This is silly. If you only watch PL YT videos, you'll definitely have a false sense of real world strength. Same thing if you watch a lot of Porn.
YouTube is like the strongest guy in the your gym putting up a video.
