Weightlifting and the cult of the body
#2
Anything done to excess or for the wrong reasons can be sinful.

I agree that bodybuilding culture can feed narcissism, but the narcissism was probably already there to be fed.

There is nothing wrong with toning the body, but gym culture encourages steroid use and other questionable "supplements," from what I understand.  It can become a Fifth Commandment issue.

It's really a question for this young man's confessor.  I hope he has a regular confessor.
