1  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Please join me in congratulating WalterWhite for his Blue Stars! on: July 15, 2014, 11:46:08 AM
We have about 4 more that are in the works for getting their blue stars.

We recently had a large influx of members asking for blue stars.

"1"

That is cool.  I am competitive as well, but I am not going to make a big deal like some people do about some blue starts next to my name lol.

Good to see some more competitive powerlifters on here.

It's not... Not only did she have to call him 7.4 times every min, text him 4 times every min. She also emailed him every 5 mins and wrote a letter and mailed it every 16 mins. For a grand total of 226 dollars worth of postage.... Like a meth head has that money to spend on stamps

Your right Mike.  The only way it would be even close to possible is she would have to have automated call and texting/email bots txting/calling/emailing him non stop while she furiously wrote letters 24/7 in which her hand would wear out in fatigue even with meth.

Oh boy, where do I begin?

Anabolic Window
You have to eat a shitload of calories to be huge "this statement has created more fat permabulkers than anything else, way over simplified"
You can be as big as a pro bodybuilder without steroids, it just takes more time
Listen to your body/instinctive training
The key to great abs is lots of ab work
ANY OTC supplement with the possible exceptions of high quality protein powder, pre workout stimulants, creatine, and amino acids.  
Steroids don't actually do anything, it's mostly mental and you train harder "Yes, if you remember the media briefly tried this tactic to try to stop steroid use"
The more you take, the more you will grow.  "Only true to a certain point"
Genetics don't matter, it's all about the training and supplements
You have to do squats, deadlifts, bench whatever to have huge "whatever muscle group"  
Steroids are deadly, turn you into a madman and shrink your dick
Light weight will get you more "toned" while heavy weight will get you huge
Incline press focuses mainly on the upper chest

I can go on.

A tough time doing 500 for a decent rep? Dude you're talking directly out of your fucking ass...

How much is this skinny fat spotter helping with his 2 fingers?

The problem is you can't judge how much someone is helping.  Therefore no powerlifter will ever care about any lift where the spotter is touching it at all.  It is just the way it is and has always been that way.  No offense to Leroy at all as he is a legitimate very strong bench presser.  Just as the bodybuilding world doesn't give a damn about you look posing at the gym or two weeks out.  What matters is how you look on competition day standing on stage.   Even Leroy knows this as he told me personally that trains sometimes quite a bit over his max as he believes it makes him stronger when it comes to meet day. 
6  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 650 freakin pounds incline bench!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on: June 29, 2014, 11:27:03 AM
On the video i posted above he does 624lbs.


You're correct.  I forgot he was trying to break Pedro Mejihas USPA SHW raw record which was 622.8 so he was allowed to use the smaller weights.  Which BTW he started calling Pedro out which was kind of strange since Pedro is pretty mellow and doesn't go talking about anyone.  Hence the minor attitude issue.  
7  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 650 freakin pounds incline bench!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on: June 29, 2014, 11:23:20 AM
What's his Squat and Dead look like?

He does bench only. 
8  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 650 freakin pounds incline bench!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on: June 29, 2014, 11:18:59 AM
Again, I have competed against Leroy on 4 different occasions. He is legit SHW around 330-340lb with currently a 600+ raw bench press with his best under contest rules and conditions 622.8.  He posted a couple of incline videos like that.  He stated that he likes to train beyond his max as he feels that makes him stronger.  The videos as you can see go over well with your average joe getbigger, but not the powerlifting community.  I wouldn't matter if he had 800lbs on the bar, in the powerlifting world if the spotter is helping at all they really don't care.  I know you might say, but equipped lifters use those shirts and suits that helps a lot, but that is another subject entirely.

Leroy is a strong lifter and you can't take anything away from him.  His only issue that I see is his attitude as he can be a bit arrogant which other lifters don't really seem to appreciate obviously.  
9  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 650 freakin pounds incline bench!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! on: June 27, 2014, 01:11:39 PM
Looks like I will have to stop the speculating.  The guys name in the video is Leroy Walker and I have competed against him on several occasions.  He is legitimately strong.  Not 650 lb incline strong but strong.  I have seen him fail with 595 and the best I have seen him do under comp conditions is 622.8.  Not a bad guy, but a bit on the arrogant side and his last comp he upset a few people by doing a lot of trash talking, even the person "Sammy" spotting him in the video you see.   So yes he is legit, but obviously the spotter is assisting him.

Dang, Spoto is recovering from shoulder surgery if I read correctly and Kirill is right there ready to bust his world record..........this kid is a beast!

And he's in his early 20s!!

Still, pound for pound Spoto is the better bencher....IMHO.



Yes Spoto pound for pound is better.  Spoto also benches in a more conventional style, using a lot of leg drive.  However due to this guys massive size and the fact that he is so young, I can see him taking the all time raw bench press record in the future. 
12  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 719 pound raw benchpress on: June 25, 2014, 10:52:28 AM
6'5" 395 lbs I believe.  Those Russians sure have some freakish genetics.  The only thing I don't understand is they almost all bench in that exact same super arch toe style.  I actually call it Russian style since they almost all do it.  Must be the way the coaches teach it over there. 
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Genetic Defect Gives Him A Massive Right Arm on: June 18, 2014, 01:57:03 PM
Oleg Zhokh has a much larger left arm.  He is one of the best left handed arm wrestlers in the world left handed. 
14  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Random pics on: May 29, 2014, 10:21:36 AM
yeah, wouldn't surprise if moments later he looked at her and crossed his heart like a beta fag




I think the kid is a pimp.  If you look closely, he doesn't give her the game ball, he keeps that one and gives her the regular one he had. She apparently thinks he gave her the game ball by her reaction. 
15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How much do you bench? on: May 29, 2014, 07:30:44 AM
USA Powerlifting alone has something like 15 in the 181's at over 500 raw. The highest being 584.

No need to beat this into the ground, but if you are talking equipped lifters, then yes there are many.  Raw, I don't know of anyone right now.  Unless you count those Paralympics competitors.  However that is not really the same thing in terms of bodyweight due to obvious reasons.
16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How much do you bench? on: May 28, 2014, 08:40:46 PM
So you understand that bodybuilding and power lifting are two different training protocols. Power lifters don't train really train for hypertrophy but for power. Also most bodybuilding workouts are random while PL is an actual plan and usually well documented. If a bodybuilder reaches a goal weight say on bench, it's because upped the dose and not due to his training. Very rarely, exept the bodybuilders that powerlift in the offseason like JOJ, don't train for power. Again, there's a difference between power, strength, hypertrophy and muscular endurance.

It's not that uncommon for a 181lb PL to hit well over 500 in a bench.


Raw it sure is.  Very uncommon. 
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Near Death Bench Press with 365lbs on: May 27, 2014, 09:20:29 PM
You sure that's 365lbs?

Looks to be around 160 kilos which is about 353lbs.  If you look closely he obviously didn't have the safety's secured right and it slipped passed the one on his left which is what almost got him killed.
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How much do you bench? on: May 22, 2014, 08:48:13 PM

Better bench than 99% of getbig.
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Were You Conned Into Bodybuilding? on: May 08, 2014, 10:45:44 AM
The incredible hulk TV program is what got me interested.  The only thing I believe to be a con in bodybuilding is the supplement industry as a whole. 
20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How much do you bench? on: May 06, 2014, 09:12:26 PM
275 for a clean 20 is pretty impressive and should put your max I would say somewhere in the low 400 range.  Would love to see a video. 
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 3 weeks into my diet on: May 06, 2014, 09:02:44 PM
Wow, there must be some lean beast in this thread saying Mike looks like shit despite all the progress he's made.   I applaud halo for at least showing his pics.  A good example of how a primarily ectomorphic bodytype looks on gear while Mike has more towards an endomorphic bodytype.  Some people have to work harder to be leaner than others while others have to work a lot harder to pack on extra muscle.   Grin
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 3 weeks into my diet on: May 06, 2014, 02:45:56 PM
I liked navy mike more when he was humble.   Grin

Mike generally is.  However he's also not going to take shit.  AH, seriously you should compete in a BB or powerlifting competition.  I know you think they are dumb just to win a trophy as you say.  However I am sure you would find it much more difficult than it appears on a message board like GB.  You might even feel a sense of accomplishment.  Not for the trophy, but for yourself.   Plus it gives you more room to talk.  Critiquing others as you do harshly without ever even competing is kind of like the "Monday morning quarterback" if you know what I mean.  
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Article for the steroids creeps on: May 05, 2014, 11:17:18 AM
So, everyone who lifts weights and take steroids must have been not loved by their dad and bullied plus borderline gay and work shitty manual jobs?  OK......
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Prozac is 94 percent fluoride on: May 02, 2014, 10:52:38 AM
No, Prozac has three fluorine atoms in the molecule.  It doesn’t have “fluoride in it”.






Just because a chemical is a feedstock in the production of a product doesn’t mean that it’s “in

it”.



Like he said, the conspiracy theorist wackos do give me a good laugh though.

Some LA Fitness are HARDCORE on this policy to the point where the piss people off who are just working out with their family.  I have seen it first hand.  Helping out a family member should never be an issue.
