1  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Dorian Yates was a much better bodybuilder than Ronnie Coleman - here is why on: April 10, 2014, 02:05:14 PM
ronnie's lower back was not more striated but it was 2x thicker:

dorian just can't match ronnie's back thickness.

never could, even at the same bodyweights.

BTW, based on that comparison alone, I think you're out to lunch buddy.  Ronnie had the thicker erectors, but Dorian SMOKED him in that comparison.
2  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How Does Bill Kazmaier Stack Up Against Today's Strongmen? on: April 04, 2014, 02:33:23 PM
I've met him and he was very cool with me. Maybe you met him on a bad day. We all have 'em. (For what it's worth, my good friend lived not too far from him several years ago and would see him frequently out and about. Says he was always nice to him, too.)

Anyway ...

Bill is my all-time fave strong man. His powerlifting feats, in my opinion, have yet to be bettered, when factoring in his minimal use of gear and the manner in which he performed his lifts. CRAZY strong.

And one of the true pioneers and great champions of strongman.

The man was born to be a freak of size and strength. 

I realize this goes years back and all, but weren't you the gent who reported Kaz's weird spiel about "beams of light shooting out of his head" or the like?  

I mean, I know who you are/were in the bodybuilding publications: Rob Fortney.  Even though you have a spat with one of the coolest Getbiggers around IMO, my man Wild Willie, I also know you're a decent dude (so is Willie, BTW; y'all just hit it off on the wrong hoof I think).  

I could've sworn, or could swear, it was you that said that of Kaz.  Now, I'm perhaps a little drunk -- celebration tonight, what can I say? -- but I'm also cogent enough to recall how a fellow with an almost identical writing style "marveled" at how someone Nasser's size struggled mightily with 315 on a standard BB incline.  

I think marveled was the word.  My photographic memory has lots of splotches, false images and instances of extremely poor focus, particularly when everyone around me is urging me on to join them in just one more Heineken.  Ah, so cold, so good.  Plus, it lessens the impending impact of my ball and chain, who will be here in probably <30 min. Wink

Shhhh.  That's strictly Getbigger talk! Cheesy

freak accident from an uppercut while sparing. lol... then had me lay on my chest for xrays and shifted my ribcage about 1/2cm. if it would've shifted the other way it could've torn my heart! lol.. fucking xray techs.

Yeow!!!!!

I know all about those techs, though Visualizeperfection makes a great point; I only wish I'd a much greater affinity for the sciences ... as-is, I'm on the fence:  do I get yet another undergrad degree just to be an entry-level public school teacher, do I pursue an MA or even dual-MA such that I might have school principal potential (maybe by the time I'm ready to retire, anyway, LOL), or do I go all-out for an M.D. in one of my BA fields?  Gah, so confusing ... and with the job market the way it is, I can't help but to wonder how well I can ride the tides of fortune either way I dive in; where they lead, no man can know.  (On top of all that shit, I have to have my colostomy procedure reversed before I make any kind of serious move.  That's on the immediate horizon, thank Crom, the Great Maker*, God and whomever else will listen to my hapless pleas Wink .)

*The Great Maker is a sci-fi reference, and a rather particular one at that.  IF someone can prove they know the reference without exercising much in the way of Google-Fu, I'll PayPal you ... uhh ... however many dollars I can spare Wink  (Seriously, even with new-found health-care coverage, I'm struggling far more than I should.)

OH!  And FWIW:  I don't mind working for a boss as such, either, even though I did very well as a freelance copy editor for various public schools, private schools, community colleges, a few universities and a LOT of PR firms who represented one or all of the above.  Working for myself was great in a lot of respects, but without very well-defined contracts ... eh.  One of my exes, still kind of a friend, has done her best to talk me out of teaching.  But a steady cheque, benefits and, depending on the school, potential for tenure?  I'm all over that shit.

Hahahahahaha! Cheesy

His arm does look pretty good there, I must admit all, err, I mean, no homo.

Ah, I hear ya, man.

My only point was that I could BB incline well over 225 for 8-10reps when I could also struggled with 4 plates/side on the Hammer Iso-Incline for ... Huh 3-4?

I honestly can't remember, and it really doesn't matter.  Further commiserations about your nerve damage and broken sternum Sad  You are one of my favorite posters, and I wouldn't wish that on ... err ... one of my least favorite posters.

Excuse myself while I go jump off the nearest cliff by myself ... Cheesy

From 6:10 mark:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ao3PUJU2AlM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ao3PUJU2AlM</a>

That fucking jackass.  

I used to like Kevin but his teasing and bullshitting is pathetic.  "Oh, back in the day, I benched 405 for 15 ... I benched 500 for 6 reps ... blah blah blah."  

Yeah, we know you used to be strong as shit, Kev.  Why even mention what you did 15-20 years ago in the course of bitching about not competing again?  

It's not unlike a successful salesman saying, "Well, I sold tens of millions of USD in material for 30-plus years!  So, see, I was gonna show all these young guns what it's all about, but I'm simply beyond that now."  Roll Eyes

Kevin needs to lay off the Smirnov for a few weeks and rediscover his sober self IMNSHO.

4 plates per side on that machine is like 2 plates on an incline bb bench

shit... I was pushing 5 plates, if not 6 (as many as it held) on 100mg test/wk at a bodyweight of 230.. maybe 220 (at like 15%) a few years ago.

I don't doubt that for a second; you're a big, strong dude as I recall, and I doubt you need much test E to lift decent weights.

However, to be fair, methinks you exaggerate the ratio a bit.  I've inclined 275 on a 45-50 degree bench for maybe 6-7 smooth reps with brief pauses on the chest, and I found that about as hard as four plates/side on the Hammer Strength Iso-Incline machine for, eh, 10-12 reps, also paused at the bottom (eh, thereabouts.  It might've been 6-8; I've always actually SUCKED on HS machines).

Whatever -- something like that.  4 plates/side is definitely harder than inclining 225 for me.  Even that clown Genova could incline 225 for 8-plus, and none of that halfway down shit, but he almost shit himself trying to break around 4 plates on the Hammer for one (only to follow with a few chickenshit half-reps). 

But on a different note, I really love that machine.  Once I can train again, I really hope to pile the weight on for a shit-ton of reps.  I only wish I had access to HS Wide Chest and some of their other chest presses, even if that "wide chest" model was a shoulder-wrecker IIRC :?:

Two weeks on the test and I am fucking feeling like a brand new man.

*snip*
Carry on.

Every time I see you post, I've the compunction to say, "Ah, Unca June, you hit it in the muff!"  Grin

Good shoulder pressing strength.  But I'm with the honorable Wolfox:  he ain't for sending out pics of his pecker, so whoever brought up that bullshit might as well let firmly go of jerking their own member to that premise.  He wouldn't exchange pics of his dick for seeing my old lady in various states of undress, after all.  And that is a BIG temptation pound for pound, let me tell you Cheesy~
10  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Has anyone ever done Quaaloods? on: April 03, 2014, 01:40:19 PM
Can't say I have.

The closest I've come to any kind of "trip" on a drug was from taking a smidge above what I was prescribed for anxiety and/or sleep (lorazepam/Ativan and Ambien, respectively).  The Ativan gave me trippy dreams, but for some reason or another, Ambien didn't knock me out or, for that matter, keep me asleep.

Instead, I hallucinated something crazy.  While I was aware the hallucinations weren't real -- e.g., the sensation of being able to reach into the computer screen or manipulate it like the touch-screens in Star Trek: TNG/DS9/VGR, or the "creature standing behind me" that I could never quite catch, even though I thought if I pivoted fast enough I see it Cheesy -- they were real enough that I could entertain myself with the illusions. 

It was kind of fun for a bit, but I also did a bunch of dumb shit while under the influence.  For one, I sent my first ex-girlfriend the most detailed schematics of a Klingon Bird-of-Prey one could find on the 'Net back then.  Uploading them to her must've taken 30 minutes Cheesy  And I had no recollection of that.  Fortunately, I unsent the mail before it was delivered ... but even then, meh, who cares.  We remained on good terms for years so she probably would've thought it was funny.

Damn dude, way to cut a retard with a hobby down. Feel better now?  Roll Eyes

Did you always pick on the kids who rode the short bus?

Complex question aside (I thought you were a logical type?  Huh), I admit ... yeah, that was pretty harsh of me. 

But I don't have to like the guy just because he's mentally disadvantaged.  He's an arrogant ass.  And people saying he's got a better build than AH are out to friggin' lunch.
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Jason Genova - Proving you wrong / Red Posing Trunks on: March 13, 2014, 03:23:04 PM
.

Ugh, marone.  To be ugly, retarded AND have a shit physique ... someone deserves to hang for bringing this kid to our collective consciousness.

BUT, to give credit, he looks leaner than 13% bf to me in his most recent video.  His waist is actually quite small.  And while he's not popping with detail, I'd have to guess he's closer to 11%.  Maybe even 10 because he seems to distribute his bodyfat very evenly.  Plus, remember, the kid's supposedly on AAS and has water to drop  Roll Eyes

And with all respect to anyone who said Gentard had anything on Anabolichalo ... ROTFLMAO.  AH might get his jollies out of incessantly posting nonsense threads, but poor Jason would literally kill himself to have AH's build for a day.  No shit.

Further, I'm sorry, but anyone who thinks J.G. has wheels worth ... eh, anything ... I grant you they're not horrible for a 9th grader who quarter-squats 315 for a few shaky reps, but the kid is SHORT and SMALL.  Of course his legs will look OK compared to the rest of him, whatwith no pecs, no lats, beginner lifter's shoulders, fairly sorry arms, etc., etc.

Jason lost some fat ... FINALLY.  I'd commend him for that if it didn't immediately go to his head and he'd start a squeaky-voiced, profane rant about Sith Lords, gladiators and other things "sickening."  Roll Eyes  Feeding him compliments will only encourage him more.

Morehouse and Emory...

Not ivy...but both good schools.

Should have chosen Florida state, San Diego state or Arizona state.

i would have partied my ass off

LOL.

But good on you.  Yeah, those are both excellent schools.  My best friend's ex-fiance was a pre-med gal at Emory.
16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Any Ivy League Grads Here? on: March 13, 2014, 07:02:05 AM
Graduated from U of Waterloo in Canada. Not officially Ivy, but excellent school nonetheless, especially for math/computer science/engineering.

No shit?  I know a guy who graduated there.  Sharp as a rapier.

I never attended an Ivy League school, but I was accepted at a ton of top-notch places for my post-grad studies.
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: why doesnt pressing give round delts, only laterals? on: March 07, 2014, 07:10:02 AM
ask for a pictur

Of Taka or him doing the measurement?  (Ergs and shitbells does that last bit sound queer.)

I know what Taka looks like.  Great natty physique.  Good arms.  But I've not seen 19" arms on anyone pushing at least 200 VERY lean pounds ... unless, of course, they're like 5'1" or so.  Kyomu is taller than that Cheesy
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: why doesnt pressing give round delts, only laterals? on: March 07, 2014, 07:03:15 AM
Believe or not i am pure natural(even i dont take amino.OK now i take vitargo jaja).
My arms grew with 15-20reps range and now 19inchs. My weight is only 82kg with 171cm height.

19" arms at 180 lbs.?

No way, dude.  You have nice arms but you must be measuring them wrong.
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Jason Genova finally getting somewhere! on: March 05, 2014, 03:44:02 PM
Jason does look a lot better there, and at the risk of stating the bloody obvious, I'll tell you why:  he finally lost some fat.

If he continues down the same path, he'll start to look OK.  Even if, by some miracle he gets truly shredded, he might place in a local contest, perhaps even in the top five of an amateur division.

But I disagree that he has enough muscle to compete as-is.  His shoulders are rather pathetic even for a natural (if he is; I don't know what he's taking, but he certainly LOOKS natty), he's painfully thin from the sides, which betrays his severe lack of back thickness, and for all of the chest and arm shit he does on-camera, I'm surprised he doesn't at least sport either good arms or pec development.

His legs?  Meh.  Okay, especially given his retarded-ass training.  (Yes, I said that.  He DOES train like a fucking retard.)

It'd be best to wait until he's a good 15-20 lbs. lighter before really assessing his potential as a repeat local competitor.  That, coupled with a posing coach who could teach him to be a little less spastic-looking, and he could very well be one of those dudes who enters some podunk shows and looks pretty good but never goes on to win his class, barring of course some kind of weird Goodrumesque fuck-up.
20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 1996 Arnold Classic on: March 05, 2014, 03:00:24 PM
that was the first bbing show I ever saw.

flex was making his comeback after his car accident and was a fan fav.

back then I thought flex got robbed, but now, looking back I can see how you could give levrone the nod.

flex was a lil watery and 'thin' in some areas compared to levrone.

it was right after that that levrone supposedly found 'igf1' and put on 10-15lbs of muscle.. most likely he just bumped his gh dosage and added insulin.

levrone the year after looked like complete shit at the Arnold classic.. I think that was the year??.. but was the biggest I'd ever seen him at the MrO, then cut way down and tightened up for the Grand Prix and had his best ever showings during that grand prix... after that he had back problems and quit training legs... and probably started drinking a lil more. lol.

Hmm ... what was the year Levrone turned up looking like total garbage at the ASC?

I think it actually was the 1997 rendition -- good call, ESF!  And yeah, he looked awful.  About 25 lbs. too heavy, like he hadn't even dieted for the thing.  I think he got 8th place that year, which was a gift.  But sure enough, he did tighten up for the Mr. O and looked really big and pretty good.  I'm thinking he was in third?  And he did win a few Grand Prix shows.  Nasser whipped him in a couple, and Ronnie won the Russian show.  Apart from maybe the '98 ASC, in which I think Ronnie competed (Huh??), Levrone never "won" against Coleslaw again Cheesy
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Do you really claim to bench 405? on: March 05, 2014, 02:41:47 PM
bench pressing is over rated

right now i could do 7 reps with 120kg


but dumbelss feel betrer

If those are seven strict reps, that's not a terrible bench press.  You should have at least 275x6, which would easily translate to singles in the 335-340 range.

I still disagree with you about younger natty guys putting up comparable numbers, though.  I rarely went over 225-245 because I was training Heavy Duty/HIT to the letter, including the 4 down, pause on chest, 2 seconds up crap.  But I still had no problem doing smooth singles with 315 when I was 18 -- and no, I wasn't taking anything.  Some of my classmates, who actually practiced a more powerlifting-oriented routine, could do more. 

And no, I've never benched 405 :lol:  I gave up on flat benching a long time ago.  I was a big, fat bloated test E mess at 240-245 going as high as 370 for quality triples.  Even then, I felt like the weight would pull my sternum apart.  And that was still when I was young enough to get away with all that and suffer no rotator cuff pain to speak of.

You just summed up 90% of the IFBB and NPC. That's what these guys are, away from the stage. A bunch of loudmouthed, insecure, drug-abusing narcissistic dickbags who think the world revolves around their feeding times and guest appearances. Only thing worse is the airheaded women that date them and stroke their already-inflated egos.

Well-said, Ice.
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 1996 Arnold Classic on: March 04, 2014, 04:06:18 PM
Almost everyone at the time thought Flex won that show hands-down.  KevLo was a bit harder in the hams and glutes, but Kevin had that classic "bloofy" look going.  After the ASC, Dillet couldn't believe a "fat man" like Levrone could've won.  

He wasn't fat at all, but he was definitely not at his best.  VERY big, but not better.

As I recall, the final placings should've been something like this:

Flex
Kevin
Shawn
Paul
Vince tied with Andy ... Vince looked good, but Andreas was BIG and shredded.  Vince was shapely as usual but looked 16 weeks out next to Munzer.

... then maybe Cottrell, then Roland Czir ... err, whatever:  that ripped Polish/German kid who got robbed at the '94 O; etc., etc., until you reach Fux in last place.  He was huge but smooth as a fucking whale.  Even the other Roland, the Arnold lookalike, deserved to whoop his ass by virtue of far superior conditioning.

It was a great ASC overall, though.  '95 was OK but Francois steamrolled that line-up.  '94 could've been great if Dillet wasn't such a moron; KLo and Vince had a good "battle" :roll:, but without Paul in the mix, the rest of the field was pretty boring.  Only '93 and maybe '97 or '98 were better.
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 300 rise of an empire on: March 03, 2014, 03:59:37 PM

I was in awe when I first saw her in casino royale.



... Then you have impeccable tastes in my estimation, whether we've disagreed about anything before or not! Smiley 

To my eye, Eva is pretty much *the* ultimate French woman.  In all fairness, Sophie Marceau could easily occupy the same spot, but Sophie is ... well ... not so young anymore, we might say.

That's not to suggest she's old by any means or, more specifically, "old-looking" (whatever that means; I know many Getbiggers get off on teenaged chicks, so women old enough to mother them mightn't garner their interest  Undecided ).  But Sophie, as tasty as she is, definitely loses the age edge to the incredible Ms. Green.

Both Eva and Sophie are true Frenchies at heart, regardless of age, and they both love smoking a shit-ton of cigarettes and drinking many gobs of wine daily. 

That wouldn't bother me the least with either.  I smoke cigars and I like a mixed drink here and there (even some wines), so I'd be lighting their smokes left and right while I tried to get one or both of them good and drunk before beckoning them back to my place. 

I probably wouldn't be able to fuck them both Sad  I have such hots for both that, if interested in me, either could easily make me blow a load in my jeans just by kissing and "petting" me.  But I do reckon before the night was out, I'd have test enough in me to propose a bit of the old in-out, in-out to one of them.  The question is, which one?

For some reason, I favor Sophie because she strikes me as:

A.  deeper into her sexual prime.  Remember, kiddies, a woman in her mid/late-30s will fuck the living daylights out of just about anything able to penetrate them ...

B.  a bit more low-key and private.  Eva's been in the spotlight for awhile and, by comparison, poor, sweet Sophie might feel a tad left out.  Far be it for me to assume as much, but I would certainly enjoy ... making her feel better about herself, say Cheesy
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Big Richard threatens to kill Genova on: March 03, 2014, 07:30:32 AM
i think the old guy is making up for his shrunken nuts with loudmouth sayings.

the only thing hes chopping up is neighbors lawn.


was cute how he semi flexed the traps while talking to apear more intimidating.

a real badass, going at a retard whom he towrs by 2 heads

Had a good chuckle at the bold part Smiley

Richard is definitely a peckerhead.  I wouldn't have much patience for a 'tard like Genova, but I wouldn't swagger around the gym cussing him, either.

Ironically, even tall guys like Dick can have Little Man Syndrome.  He's aware of his stature, but he still feels inadequate; hence, the emotionally overblown reactions to everything/person around him in a public setting, down to the trap-flexing and shouting at a retarded kid 16" shorter than he.  I bet he's the sort to make a big fuss if a vending machine cheated him out of a nickel -- at least, if he had an audience to appreciate how he dominated that thieving tin can :roll:

I also bet he doesn't go home and holler like that at his old lady ... but if he does, it's only because she's the sort that could easily outscream and outswear him.  "Ya, 'Big Richad,' they calls ya.  If only dey knew da troot, hun, if only dey knew!" Cheesy
