Say what you want about him............but he is 10 times better than Queen Tamali EVER was..........period.
2  Getbig Bodybuilding Boards / Injury and Rehabilitation / Re: shoulder pain on: October 10, 2006, 02:19:01 PM
I can't tell you what it is, but my best advice is to stay away from exercises that aggravate you. Stopping skull crushers won't kill you. Personally I loved the exercise, but they eventually hammered my elbows; so much I thought I had really injured them. I worked around it...and I'm now fine.

On another note, 10 months ago I had major shoulder surgery for a 100% tear of my right rotator cuff and to remove a big chunk of my labrum that was floating around. It was 6 months of hell, but I'm ready to get lifting again. I have totalled International Elite at 242 in the USAPL, so I know what its like to lift heavy. Never had ANY shoulder problems until I was rear ended in my truck by a 1 ton van going 50 mph. Right hand on steering wheel...straight...and it popped. My whole point...........you can prevent most (not all) future problems by not aggravating the joint with certain exercises.

Every professional sports team carries a personal chiropractor....NFL, NBA, MLB and so on. If your extremely active, especially powerlifters/bodybuilders, chiropractic care is essential. If you have irreparable damage...no. But a good chiropractor is great for maintenance and overall care. I could not have competed in powerlifting at an elite level for 15 years if I did not use one on a regular/when needed basis. I'm 42 now and my back feels great. If your car gets banged out of alignment, what do you do?......get it aligned. Same with the spine.

How can any half way intelligent bodybuilding fan/bodybuilder/judge state that Vince looks saggy? The only thing that may be remotely "sagging" is the loose skin around his quads, due mainly to the atrophy of his vastes medial us. Nothing in his mid section is saggy. His arms/delts....in my opinion are top 3. He is simply a class act who also happens to be a genetic freak. Appreciate the positives.

Your an idiot LYRIC.
6  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 50 years old! on: September 30, 2006, 11:50:31 AM
He looks great.....for ANY age. Any of you idiots who put him down are delusional. 99.9% of all National level elite bodybuilders will NEVER look that good.....regardless of age.

What's scary is that they are mentally ill. You can crack all the jokes you want, but they are seriously f....up.

Skip is clean......period.

Before a president can go to "war", it has to go through Congress. Before we invaded Iraq, the UNITED NATIONS gave their go ahead. How delusional can someone be to think it was purely BUSH?
Please people............get informed before you make asinine statements. This whole "war" is bigger than people can even begin to understand.
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Marion Jones cleared of doping on: September 13, 2006, 12:11:48 PM
Adonis..............you are obviously well versed, but not very informed when it comes to athletics...........and you are probably a non-athlete (or never was an athlete). Your trying to tell us that the 2 single fastest humans on earth will not produce a fast off spring? They (the off spring) may not be eventual world record holders, but I would wager to say that they....with NO training, would be faster than 99.99% of the population. Marion Jones may/may not have taken performance enhancing drugs (I would say yes), but she was running world class times way back in high school! That's not attributed to good genetics? I understand your point....2 good gene pools does not always add up to greatness, but 2 SUPER ELITE athletes who have run faster than nearly any WORLD CLASS ATHLETE/SPRINTER in history...........are very,very most likely to have genetically-superior off spring.

Also.....as for the Manning's in football.....it's not genetics? Intelligence can be attributed to genetics (which they are) their both 6'5" 225 plus pounds....that's not genetics? No matter how much an individual trains, their not going to be 6'5" without certain gene traits. They won't run a 9.9 100 meters without superior genetics either....drugs or not. I have been an elite powerlifter who bench pressed 315 pounds as a sophomore in high school with relatively very little training, eventually pushing 400 as a senior at 200 pounds. Eventually, with 20 years of training I totalled internatonal elite in the USAPL (highest drug free ranking). My point..........my grandfather/father/mother had incredible genetics that they obviously passed down to me. Again..........not all produce superior off spring, genetically speaking.....but I would venture to say 2 SUPER ELITE athletes will produce something special.

Well said 333386...............

You reap what you sew.
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: GetBig's review about King Kamali's placing 11th on: September 12, 2006, 09:42:20 PM
I don't know the guy and I do not dislike him. This is just my "common sense" opinion from being involved in the sport for 27 years, attending 100's of shows, competing/winning....and judging numerous high level competitions. From certain angles he looks "ok". But as a PROFESSIONAL.....his physique is rather ugly. No calves, smooth turnip shaped quads, big waist, horrible arms. I have seen MANY college athletes (non-competitive bodybuilders) who make his physique look horrific. NO...their not as large, but their physiques as a whole would be picked 99.9 to 0.1 by almost everyone. His physique is not even remotely aesthetically pleasing. Kamali has ruined his average genetics with massive amounts of drugs....period. The only reason he is even talked about is that he brings a very small spark to a very dim room.
14  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Another great "Lou ferrigno story" on: September 08, 2006, 05:18:31 PM
In life you are remembered on how you treated people and what type of person you were, not how big your bicep or wallet was. Lou is prick....plain and simple.
15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dave Henry at 163lbs on: September 08, 2006, 05:03:58 PM
Drugs work wonders................. IGF-1...........+ EVERYTHING else. 10 pounds a years is easy, especially if he was some-what clean to begin with. It's crazy..........but achievable....obviously.

No shit Sherlock
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Paul Dillet VS Ronnie on: August 11, 2006, 09:07:58 PM
Paul is great standing there...........wonderfu l symmetry. But..........Ronnie has and will always be in another class. PERIOD!

You can say he "needs to do this...and he needs to do that"...but the point is, he DIDN'T DO IT.

There are some crazy mo-fo's out there. Man oh man!

Widen his stance...........tighter suit, wraps, mono lift.........Ronnie would destroy a grand! (1000)
20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Congrats Chick - Getting married! on: July 26, 2006, 09:55:39 PM
I was married in Las Vegas 4 years ago...........at Caesar's Palace in the Deluxe Penthouse suite...........4,000 sq ft. We had 75 people fly in. I have to argue the fact that yes.............you can have a classy wedding in Vegas.

Good Luck Chick!
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: LEGID 22 1/2" ARMS in the 70s!!!! on: July 26, 2006, 09:52:01 PM
Marius fat?
Are you freakin' nuts? You must be!
Have you seen him compete? He is well under 8% at a very high bodyweight.
22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Review of Mark Dugdale's "Driven" DVD + LOTS of pics. on: July 26, 2006, 09:47:17 PM
Boy oh boy...........some of you are truly brainwashed.

While I don't have the same "beliefs" as Mark.........he is still a great guy, a wonderful father/husband........and a very good human being. So what if he states his beliefs ........you don't have to listen......but many of you are obviously are.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: sick of the flex wheeler hype on: July 25, 2006, 06:55:11 AM
You guys are delusional.

Flex was about as close as you could get to being symmetrically perfect.
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Review of Mark Dugdale's "Driven" DVD + LOTS of pics. on: July 24, 2006, 09:59:15 PM
I'm glad you guys know so much about how/why the world exists....and that you want to tell all of the other lonely ding-bats your "opinions" through a bunch of pshyco-babble . Why don't you spend more time with your family........or bettering yourself for the benefit of your family, like Mark does. While some of you have great responses, this is a thread about Mark Dugdale and his DVD...........his DVD...........his DVD.
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Mark Dugdale on: July 22, 2006, 10:07:56 PM
He can buy hair..............and you were born ugly.
