What's to explain?


It's actually pretty straight forward.


Maybe he just expects that the people here who know don't need an explanation and the tards just wouldn't know what to do with an "Explanation"


Fuck! There really are a lot of NON bodybuilders on this board, aren't there?



A bodybuilding board... lol

Back when I was a skinny twink I gained a half inch on my (pumped) arms by working them twice a day every day for 7 days straight, 3 sets biceps/three sets triceps 2X per day....lots of pumping and really painful stretching. Lots of calories. Lots of protien and carbs and useless supplements.


Maybe it works for some and not for others, just like anything else, also anything works when U R in your first stages of bodybuilding.


Intermediate: Much slower gains

Advanced....."maintenance between cycles"


Old age: Good luck, you better have started young and stayed lean.

I'm thinking that a lot of people didn't see what was intended to be portrayed by the producer.


I still stand by my first decision. I liked it.



Good filming. Nice feel. Not amateurish. Slightly trite and contrived but nearly as bad as what we saw on YT... especially Chic. I wonder when he is going to take classes on public speaking and correct syntax?


He sounds like a Doofus half the time.

oh boy i have the same shape,but i'm using v-handle and good form  Huh

Lol....



I saw that earlier in my thread...the 'you lost me here'



I'm surprised someone didn't mention that he's using the wrong machines. They should be chrome, not black and white...

Lost too much weight in a short period of time...caused loose skin


You got it ~

Tom Platz never won a big contest! I don't think he ever won a pro show.

O.K.

Let me "re-phrase"


Tom had just won enough money to buy in....I wish I remembered the amount. It was all he had basically. It was a move that he really had to take a chance on, so nobody's blaming him, it's just that he chose wrong....
8  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Is This Physique Fixable? on: April 22, 2014, 07:52:39 PM
Looks like Ben Paluski's twin ~



NOT fixable, unless you mean "fix" as in STOP working out.

wut the?  U lost me on this one?

Some of the answers here....



We are falling for it, no doubt.



I think the idea these days is to be lost on 99.9% of ALL GB threads

Oops?

Arnie was too small. Sergio smoked him in the MM.


Arnold did a lot of psych-out and deceptive shit to beat Sergio. That's a FACT!


Sergio was an anomaly, much like Coleman. There will never be another of either...


Genetics just sick.


Casey Viator had some good bodybuilding genetics, but he was def not in the "top" list as far as aesthetics and all-timers
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: What Causes This Muscle Look? on: April 22, 2014, 06:46:02 PM
Uhhhhh...

obviously the trainers are not here.


He was once extremely overweight. Classic look of one who dieted and worked hard, but too little too late.


Skin is saggy, age set in, tried some juice... did it wrong... on and on ~


Genetics are piss-poor, but at least he has tried. Looks better than a pig that's for sure.

I am in agreement with everyone here.


I'm just curious why this insane shit is popping it's ugly head up again.


Shit, just get some Synthol or do some S.E.O.s....  Lips sealed


I do think there is some merit in training lagging calves a bit more, but for any other body part, not so much. In my experience, I've never seen anything really appreciable with anything "gimmicky" ~ nothing but hard, balls-to-the-wall training consistency and some decent food... and rest (if possible)


Lotta peeps nowadays stay up waaaaay too long thanks to cell phone Apps and the net.... and the junk food is just too EZ.


Alright... trash can the question. BOOOM!!!!
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Just got my collectors editon of Generation Iron from Australia... on: April 22, 2014, 01:38:49 PM
I actually liked the movie. Truly.


What sucks is this "Region Code"


You are only allowed to change it 4 times. Hope it's not an issue. Gonna burn copies ~


The movie takes a different perspective on the portrayal of Hardcore Pro Bodybuilders. The guys filming had no clue about the industry.


There are some very interesting candid, unexpected moments in the movie, and the quality is awesome.


Watchin Branch get thrown off of his horse was totally unexpected. It started bucking and he got thrown and hurt bad. They were supposed to do a hunting escapade. That didnt happen.


Branch, even though he doesn't look so great, he has a killer gym ethic that is not portrayed in Youtube vids.


I liked it, like I said. If it's just me, it's just me. No harm, no foul.

How so? What decision was it?

The Starbucks franchise?

Tom platz once had a friend who wanted to start a coffee shop franchise, and asked tom if he wanted to put some money up and be involved, Tom didn't think the idea would take off and turned down the offer. His friend continued with the idea anyway. Turned out to be the start of Starbucks, Tom recently said he was gutted.
Dig around you'll find the article somewhere, good read.

He had just won a big contest and actually had the money to drop...

One of those "things" where you can take a chance and lose, or take a chance and be set forever ~
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: tom platz is a sharp dressed man nowadays on: April 22, 2014, 12:25:42 AM
He could have been a millionaire...


and he still regrets that decision today.

I had no idea there was a version from Australia. I am really not following bodybuilding as much as I previously have.


If I'm not mistaken, it say's here that Australia is where the movie was actually produced. Not "shot" of course. I believe that was all shot around Venice, but for some reason the movie premiered in the UK first and then distribution was picked up all over, first by Australia and then all the way to China.

Hell, I don't know. Not really important, just funny that some small company in L.A didn't grab it up. I guess they all thought it would be a failure, which I guess it was as far as theater viewing.

Not sure how the DVD distribution will do. Sure it will just be bodybuilders and such buying it.


Funny that the producer was the same dude who produced the original Pumping Iron. Maybe that's why...
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / I don't ever ask workout questions here... but I'm going to... Wes, Hazbin... on: April 22, 2014, 12:14:30 AM
Damn I'm posting a lot tonight. Must have been the long nap.

Anyway, I remember reading years ago about these marathon arm workouts where you would supposedly gain and inch on your arms in a 24 hour period.

Some of you fags know that I keep up with the fag rags.. and I have my reasons. Yeah, it's to oggle the dudes in thongs, right?

Anyway, I never tried that shit.

Now I'm reading about it again.


Any of you guys ever try those routines and have any degree of success?


I suppose we would be forced to discuss natty or no.. regardless... I can't fucking imagine training your biceps every hour on the hour for 24 hours and expecting them to do anything but be destroyed beyond repair.


Comments?


Go fuck myself? (that's a given, so just leave it out, TIA)


What about calves?


I've had some of my competitors gain some extra size by training calves up to 4 x weekly with insanity-type routines, but most people that don't have calves to begin with... never really do.


The whole Arnold thing... ya know, where he cut his pants so he could see his dick... I mean, his sticks... and then builds these massive funky-gnarly looking calves by beating the ever-living-loving-bejeezus out of them ~ I've always kind of wondered about that.


Huh??

22  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Just got my collectors editon of Generation Iron from Australia... on: April 22, 2014, 12:07:01 AM
... haven't started watching it yet. Hmmmm...


Will I be disappointed?


Who cares?
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: The best Bodybuilder of all time ? on: April 22, 2014, 12:04:07 AM
Arnold!!!!!!!   Steve Reeves for best natty.


I tend to agree.


Reeves was really something in his day. It's difficult to see when we look back into that era from today, but if you look closely, it seems people put him on a god-like pedestal. Especially the women.


I wonder why he retired from everything so early? They say he had a lot of demons. Maybe we can just thank Hollywood for that... I dunno.


He was perfectly proportioned and I think he pioneered much more in the bodybuilding world than we actually give him credit for.


24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Ruhl looked impressive here on: April 21, 2014, 11:59:21 PM
Ruhl is pretty fuckin' scary looking these days.


Has that "I don't have much time left" look about him... and he smokes like a frickin' train. I get it... and I don't.  Embarrassed
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: HOLY PALUMBOISM on: April 21, 2014, 11:58:04 PM
I'm betting he makes 5 grand more to guest pose. 

It's the difference between "Meet Ronnie Coleman" and "Mr O Ronnie Coleman GUEST POSER". 



Very good point. Thing is, he doesn't act like he's doing it for the dough. It's as if he really believes he's still "all that" with his bouncing hip-hop routine. Maybe I just feel bad for him.. and I shouldn't.

I just want to remember him how he was.


Makes me wonder what Cutler might be doing over the next ten years.


I guess when that time comes, retrospect will make me realize that Ronnie wasn't as bad post-retirement as I may have thought.


Ron's a great guy. People love him. I guess they all find a way to overlook the fact that he looks NOTHING like he used to. Maybe it's all about him just being him. There are a lot of "ex" Pro's that absolutely COULD NOT pull this off... Mr.O winners or not ~

On the other hand, I hope Arnold Schwarzakoff doesn't get any bright ideas ~  Roll Eyes
