I think there`s something on the web about his lifestyle and living in a cave.

This is after bodybuilding,but obviously not current,but it was on the web somewhere...still may be out there,I`m too fucking tired to look right now. 

Wes/Crown... Benny and his mom Prudence were a blast. I hung out with Benny for the better part of a year when he was training people at Ray Mentzers Muscle Mill in Redondo. That was circa 1983. That video doesn't do his size justice.   

He loved training heavy and was strong as hell. He was the one who told me that ray had squated 900 the Saturday night before. He was one of the funniest and craziest guys I ever met.

His mom had a mouth on her that would make a trucker blush.

Benny wasn't his real name it was his dads name. He took it on after his dad passed away. I believe his real name was John but don't hold me to it.

  Great job, Max   


Thanks... considering I usually interview Physique Guys and Bodybuilders this was very cool because I got to learn more about a Pro fighters mindset. It's seems a lot different than getting into a bar fight or a fight over traffic (yes I've done that) where ego's and emotion rule the fight.  

I also thought it was interesting that he emphasized training at only 30% intensity until he's perfected a technique.

I'm going out in my SWAT team vest tonight

I went everywhere as a bald, white guy. No one figured it out.  Huh

It does not make sense. They are members of Getbig just like the rest of us. I want to hear more from Onemorerep, Grant Michaels, PrincessL, Butterbean, Manofsteel, and Ron.

Whats up with Max Rep and Mindspin?  

I would like you guys to be more involved with the community.

Two moves, a bad shoulder injury, focused on career and got tired or the negativity. I get emails every day with complaints on threads.

People always complain about gimmick accounts. I can never figure out how they know and how can you gimmick a gimmick name anyway. I mean if a guy posts as jackmeoff how is it that onehandonmyschlong any different?

The whole thing baffles a seriously good looking and buffed-up, old bald guy like me.  Wink

Platz 315 for 50 reps?? Roll Eyes

Mentzer 925 squats for 2?? Hahaha

What a load of shit

It was 900 for Ray. I trained at his gym at the time and was there the next day. Benny Podda told me about it. He and others were there to witness and they all said the same thing. I was not there to witness it. I can tell you Ray was one of the strongest guys of the day.

<a href="" target="_blank"></a>

That was an awesome effort Matty. Many, many years ago I did 20 with 315 and it was hell. I also witnessed Tom Platz squatting (in person) on many occasions at Goldís Venice and I can tell you that he would be the first to acknowledge your great effort. Platz more than anyone, knew when someone was willing to lay it all on the line and thatís what I saw in this clip. They were low enough for a gym contest and low enough to be a tremendous effort. Very well done.

That one of him was from the 1971 MR O where he was "allowed" bye the IFBB to "Guess pose" but not actually Compete against Arnold, this MM below is 1 year Later in Japan where IMO he was Possibly in his Greatest ever Shape Conditioning wise Feathered Delts and imagine this Physique in this sort of shape on the Gear these days.........

See page 5 of this thread.

Such is the life of a Pro Bodybuilder... a Halloween Mask... a few claps and cheers... like a dive-piano bar with muscle.

25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: IFBB Pro Marius Dohne will retire ? on: May 11, 2012, 01:51:25 PM
quote from his facebook:
"Its a sad day for me as I announce that after the 2012 bodybuilding season, I will be RETIRING from competitive bodybuilding. Its obviously my goal to end my career with another Pro win and a top 10 feature at the Mr. Olympia. After this season my focus will be 100% on Dohne Nutrition and on building a stable life for my gorgeous son Jett. Today with the help of my trainer George Farah I start my diet for Tampa where I will be defending my title of last year. I hope I have your full support SA and my other supporters around the world as I give it one last BANG on the pro scene. Make sure to read the full story in next issue of Muscle Evolution Magazine."

I don't know this guy. He might be a great person. I can't stand what has happened to bodybuilding. His waist is larger than shoulders. He can't move, can't pose and cant even take his shorts off with even the slightest bit of finesse or swagger. How did bodybuilding ever become this. This is exactly the public image is so negative.
