Which is why you look like you do. You shut the door to the gym and ate too much food instead.
Damn Prime! Getting frisky in your old age. Getbig has rubbed one off on you.

I started lifting at 14 for sports. They noticed i had naturally strong legs, so they pushed me to train 3-4 days a week.

Trained for football all through high school. I wasn't good enough to start, but i played second string WR and Safety, just because i could run fast and catch.

I went to a Texas football powerhouse school, we won state championships.

I wasn't that big, only 165 pounds my senior year, we had some monsters on the team.

So, me and the other backups would work out like crazy.

After high school i started competing in Olympic weightlifting for 3 years and did really well.

Then competed in a BBing contest at 21 years old, hated it.

Then competed in powerlifting for 7 years.

Decided the injuries were not worth it so back to BBing.

Like everyone else, Arnold was the one.

And we used to joke about how we wanted to look like JCVD.

Now i just lift weights to stay in shape, no point pushing the envelope in my 40's.

I look and feel great, that's what matters today.

Comic book super heroes. They really do influence young boys which is probably why they are creating gay super heroes now.

Not sure I would have prefered Captain Americas physique if he was getting buttfucked in the comics

It all started the first time somebody called me “Jew boy”. Not being Jewish, I took great offense to this. I rode off on my rusty-fendered bike shouting, “I’ll show you Catholics that you’re the ones who are no good!”

And I'm the type of person...uh... who's the type of dog that....that...uh... Alright, say I'm a dog. I know I'm not really a dog but pretend. Let me start over. I'm a cat. Pretend I'm a cat----

I red some DC comics in middle school, immediately hooked up with those muscle images. I went to store bought a pair of 10 lbs dumbbells, which led to my pro card after 26 years.

Big arms. I’m not a bodybuilder just a guy who has always loved big arms so basically all my workouts are geared toward making my arms bigger. Honestly couldn’t careless what the rest of me looks like.

when I was 8, I saw the first Steve Reeves' Hercules movie in the theatre next birthday I asked for and got a 70 lb golden billard set. I did presses , rows and curls for a few months. when I went to high school I played football and destroyed my leg was in a cast for a year., that started me lifting weights again to try to come back from the injury. during that time I realized I liked lifting weights more than playing team sports. I've been at it ever since, for better or worse till death do us { the iron ] part.

I honestly wish this was a career choice. I’d probably already be retired with Taffin arguing about who gets to wear the Golden Thong today

It was probably Van Damme, Arnold, and Sly.

If you were the right age, those action heroes really set the stage for what teens wanted to look like.

It was a combination of watching Bloodsport as a kid and being obsessed with WWF and the Ultimate Warrior in particular.  I also met Lou Ferrigno as a kid in 1992 (still owe my old man $20 to this day for the pic), and that had a huge impact on me as well.

I believe it. I don't think Lou would give a discount, even to his own son.

My WWF guy was young Tony “Mr. USA” Atlas. I couldn’t believe anybody could have arms like that.

I was maybe 12 at the time telling my mother that I wanted to look like Tony.

To which my mother responded “He’s Black!”😂

This proves using very light weight does build muscle but very, very s-l-o-w-l-y.

My late dad got me into boxing when I was 11; the same year my dad got sick. Had to get a job at 15 as the oldest child. Dad died at 17 and I started lifting to get my aggression out. Then bodybuilding , competing, etc.
