A gymcel is an incel who copes by working out, thinking that a muscular body can compensate for an unattractive face.
While being reasonably muscular does increase one's chances with women, evidence has shown that it's mostly the face that determines whether women feel attracted towards the man. Many top male models have an incredibly attractive face, tall stature, good frame, but are not overly muscular. Some of them are even skinny.
Nonetheless, most incels would benefit by some gymcelling, especially fatcels who need to loose bodyfat to show their bone structure, or skinnycels who are just skin and bones, and could use extra muscles in their neck, shoulders and torso.
AlphaDestiny[edit | edit source]
The YouTuber, public figure, and bodybuilder AlphaDestiny is the epitome of a gymcel coper. He is a balding 5'3 manlet with a bad frame, who gives false hope to other coping gymcels on his YouTube channel.
He has been asked about his dating life a few times on YouTube lifestreams, after which he always replies nervously, giving vague generic answers. He is an advocate of "redpill" theory, that having an obnoxious personality and delusional self confidence is the key to attracting women.
Scientific proof that face>body[edit | edit source]
A research study in 2007 which analyzed evolutionary behavior confirmed the following:
“For both sexes, face attractiveness predicted overall attractiveness more strongly than did body attractiveness, and this difference was significant in males”
Downhill D Miller[edit | edit source]
Downhill D Miller is a super nice gymcel vlogger, who happens to have a very strangely shaped, large nose and pinhead. His gymcelling has not brought many women to the comments of his Youtube channel or his real life. In fact, he's a 43 year old virgin! So much for weightlifting! He attributes his inceldom to social anxiety and depression, but many people think he just needs a nosejob.
Female reaction to a faceless gymcel[edit | edit source]
Some gymcels love to completely exclude their sub8 faces from their dating profiles. Here’s how females react when they do that:

Chico says it all[edit | edit source]
A Chad simply doesn't need to gymcel. Chico knows that since his facial structure is already near perfect, gymcelling would simply be a waste of time and effort.

Pro-gymcelling arguments[edit | edit source]
In contrast with the incelospherian consensus of gymcelling, many people in PSL community have a positive view of gymcelling and belive that it is a legitimate method to increase the SMV and get better chances to escape inceldom. In order to support their argument they show ugly muscular men who are successful on Tinder.
