Who they decide to ruin is pretty random. The probably targeted him because he actually knows his stuff, and it didn't jive with some of terrible fitness gurus that reside on their health board.
From what I'm seeing on /fit/, he actually posted a little bit on 4chan.

/fit/ is in civil war right now.

Folks on /fit/ say that he was on steroids and wasn't open about it, but I still don't see why this was worth doxing him for

I have no idea personally, but dude has been training for 20 years. His physique doesn't look unobtainable naturally at all.

At most I can see him on HRT, which is legal with a prescription. He also wasn't a competitive bodybuilder, so I wasn't faking it for shows, so I don't get the witchhunt. He had a very positive message.

Hmm... I might give some of his workouts a try sometime this month. It's been a while since I've done any heavy lifting and I don't have a car to drive myself to the gym everyday, so I guess it's worth a shot.

Dude doesn't have an ego like other Youtube bodybuilders that I've seen.

To generalize the opinion of it on 4chan:

-He was a public idol on /fit/ for a longest time, they all loved him
-Someone on /b/ found his information and proceeded to dox him
-/fit/ wanted this to end throughout
-People decided to call him, spread the word of where we lives
-He gets prank phone calls and even a person doing comments at him home
-He gets worried as the pranks get more serious and leaves
-/fit/ is so upset about it they are currently in disarray and many people left /fit/ altogether because of how disgusted about what /b/ has done to the man
-/fit/ is now looking for other role models as he's now in self-exile and Zyzz is dead

They loved the guy and generally did it because they could and some took it too seriously. That's how it usually works with 4chan.

The only boards I can't really stand are /b/, /v/ and /vg/. That is where the site gets its reputation from.

/m/, the mecha board, for example, is pretty laid back and mellow.
