Mike O’Hearn should thank “Train To Look Good Naked”(TTLGN) for featuring him on his channel because he makes him look like a real person. I don’t follow these Youtube things too closely and maybe it was O’Hearn that invited TTLGN to train and videotape at Gold’s Venice like he offered Youtuber Jason Blaha, but the videos that TTLGN puts out are entertaining and show O’Hearn in a context other than as a photograph or spokesmodel. They also show that he has a sense of humor and can laugh about himself. TTLGN benefits as well because I had never heard of him or his channel before, but now I’ve watched a few of his videos, based on my interest in his initial video featuring Mike O’Hearn.
I first heard of this whole “O’Hearn vs everyone” battle on Vegan Gains channel where ‘Gains “decimated” Mike O’Hearn and Jason Blaha. His attack on O’Hearn centered on exercise equipment he is promoting called “The Frog” and he obliquely trashed Blaha, it seems, because O’Hearn invited Blaha, another “Frog” mocker, to train with him, and not Vegan Gains. I then watched Blaha’s video trashing the O’Hearn promoted “Frog” equipment which, I assume, may have been the initial or one of the initial O’Hearn/Frog attacks.
If you only watched the Vegan Gains and Blaha videos you’d be getting part of the story. In TTLGN’s initial O’Hearn video regarding Vegan Gains and Blaha, O’Hearn barely gives Vegan Gains any mention, which has got to make anyone that is looking for attention seething mad. To O’Hearn, Vegan Gains in not in the Fitness Industry and has less muscle development than most women. O’Hearn then makes Blaha seem like a deluded, gun wielding mental patient that spends a great deal of time on a couch.
What you realize after watching O’Hearn’s response is that, anyway you shake it, O’Hearn is a 6’3″ blond haired Superman who has been paid to be on numerous magazine covers and the other guys are not. In a follow-up TTLGN video once again featuring O’Hearn and the comparatively skinny TTLGN guy training at Gold’s Venice, a good-natured O’Hearn continues to refer to Blaha as “the fat guy on the couch” and this time relegates Vegan Gains to “female who lives with “her” mother” status.
The end result of the TTLGN videos is that TTLGN is now on the map, at least to me since I had never heard of him before, and Mike O’Hearn shows that O’Hearn, even casually mentioning Vegan Gains and Blaha, is more devastating than Vegan Gains’ well crafted furious O’Hearn rant and Blaha’s passive-aggressive couch-bound spiel. O’Hearn vs Blaha and Vegan Gains is like Donald Trump against Jeb Bush. O’Hearn is just having fun and is only responding to Blaha and Gains’ brutal initial attacks, but because of what O’Hearn has going for himself and what Blaha and Vegan Gains don’t, O’Hearn’s “brushing flies away” has the end result of a stinging slap across the face.
Mike O’Hearn: The Man of Steel Takes on the YouTube Arena
In the ever-expanding world of fitness and bodybuilding, Mike O’Hearn is a name that needs no introduction. A true legend in the industry, he has graced countless magazine covers, earned numerous accolades, and built a legacy as a bodybuilder, actor, and fitness model. But recently, the world witnessed a different side of this fitness icon as he stepped into the YouTube arena, taking on critics and challengers with charisma and humor. And one channel that played a significant role in this transformation is “Train To Look Good Naked” (TTLGN).
The clash between O’Hearn and a host of critics, notably Vegan Gains and Jason Blaha, became a topic of discussion and controversy in the fitness community. What began as a battle over exercise equipment called “The Frog” escalated into a war of words and videos. Vegan Gains, with his unique brand of vehement criticism, targeted O’Hearn and Blaha for their involvement with “The Frog.” He accused O’Hearn of promoting a questionable product and raised doubts about Blaha’s credibility. This set the stage for a series of response videos, a saga that would later see a new character enter the ring: TTLGN.
TTLGN, the brainchild of an individual passionate about fitness and sharing his journey, initially featured O’Hearn in a video that would change the dynamics of the online fitness world. While the internet was abuzz with criticism and fiery responses, TTLGN presented a side of Mike O’Hearn that many had not seen before. The videos were not only entertaining but also shed light on O’Hearn’s sense of humor and ability to laugh at himself. Through this new perspective, TTLGN showed that even a fitness icon like O’Hearn could have a fun and human side.
The magic of TTLGN’s videos was in the context they provided. They allowed viewers to see O’Hearn in a different light – not just as a photograph or a stoic spokesmodel, but as a real person with emotions, humor, and a unique personality. O’Hearn’s charisma and confidence shone through, making him more relatable and less of an enigmatic figure.
The response videos by TTLGN painted a more complete picture of the ongoing feud. O’Hearn, as a 6’3″ blond-haired Superman who has graced magazine covers and built an unparalleled legacy in the fitness world, appeared more unassailable than ever. The comparisons made by O’Hearn, playfully referring to Blaha as “the fat guy on the couch” and poking fun at Vegan Gains, added a layer of humor and wit to the feud.
While critics may have attempted to dent O’Hearn’s reputation, these videos showed that the fitness icon was unfazed and ready to engage in a light-hearted banter. The TTLGN response was more devastating than the initial attacks by Vegan Gains and Blaha. O’Hearn’s approach was akin to “brushing flies away,” emphasizing the vast disparity in their achievements and recognition within the fitness industry.
One of the unintended consequences of this clash of fitness titans was that TTLGN gained recognition and attention from a broader audience, including those like the author who had never heard of the channel before. O’Hearn’s participation in the videos undoubtedly introduced TTLGN to a larger viewership.
In the realm of YouTube fitness battles, the Mike O’Hearn vs. Blaha and Vegan Gains rivalry drew parallels to political clashes. O’Hearn was the charismatic and confident candidate who managed to keep a light-hearted demeanor while facing off against his critics, and the result was a resounding win that echoed through the digital landscape.
The lesson from this clash of titans is that in the ever-evolving world of social media and online fitness, maintaining composure, a sense of humor, and a strong sense of self can be a winning strategy. Mike O’Hearn’s YouTube journey has allowed his audience to see him as not just a fitness legend but as a multifaceted individual, making him more relatable and proving that even icons have a human side.
So, here’s to Mike O’Hearn, the man of steel who seamlessly transitioned from magazine covers to YouTube screens, bringing his charm and charisma to a new generation of fitness enthusiasts. Thanks to TTLGN, the world got to witness a different side of this fitness legend, and it’s safe to say that he’s here to stay in the YouTube arena.
