John hansen claims he is 100 percent natural built this awesome body on whey protein and creatine.



I don't dislike John, but:

*He has an ugly structure.  Not Jim Quinn ugly, but funky nonetheless. 

*He's admitted to past AAS use; ergo, he is NOT "natural."  He is clean ... if we believe him.  That said ...

*I don't think he's clean by a long shot.  I reckon he thinks as long as he's using clen, T3, gH and currently legal or recently legal steroids like some of the more potent prohormones, he can at least try to say, semi-straight-faced, that he remains "natural."

... by which he means "clean," which he's not and, as long as he's competing, he's bright enough to realize that state and anything remotely competitive are inversely ratioed, even among these so-called "natural" contests  Roll Eyes

seriously... what's the point?

once you've had "bad things" happen to you.. once you've been in bad situations, you tend to realize "oh... well... that's not so bad." and you lose that fear.

there's no point walking around each day, or ANY day, afraid of anything.

if you die, you die. not like you're gonna look back and say "damnit... I fucking died".

everybody dies.

there's a watch I used to see advertised in Esquire (I think?) that had "Remember" as the hour hand, and "You will die" as the minute hand... I loved that watch.

you think about that next time you're doing a "wooaaa is me" pitty party and worrying about a bunch of bullshit.

I've lost everything in my life, and you know what? it wasn't soo bad.... and you know what else? I got it all back.... so dying? big fucking deal.

the ones who accept the fact that they will die, will always have an advantage over the ones who will do anything to avoid it.

That, too, is an outstanding post.  Kudos, honorable sir. 

BTW, that reminds me how much I miss my subscription to Esquire.  One of my goals in life was to have a short story published in that sucker Smiley

Any human fears death.

Any human fears the ultimate transition into the unknown, what sort of question is that?

You can bodybuild safely, you can even use steroids safely. There is no need to "throw caution to the wind". You can get a fantastic physique without completely nuking your healthy with mega doses of AAS.

Moderation and patience is the key to everything in life.

Did the 70s bodybuilders drop dead? No, it is only the crop of 90s and 00s retards who are dropping like flies due to the massive abuse of heavy androgens. Simply because unbridled drug use has replaced work ethic and common sense.

Outstanding post, but then, I can't recall you ever saying anything off-base or altogether irrational.  'Matter of fact, I'd have to declare you one of DCM's favorite Getbig posters Smiley  Wink  

... no homo, of course  Shocked  Grin

I would nitpick and say that, while some of the 70s guys didn't just drop dead straight away, some of the mega-abusers of that so-called "era" probably did shorten their lives with truly batshit insane AAS use.  That loud-mouthed bully halfwit Steve What'shisname, the Intensity or Insanity dude, reportedly did enough pins and orals to make even some of the modern idiots do a double-take.  (When someone prides himself on doing upwards of 80 sets per bodypart, complete with forced reps and all of that stupid Tom Platzish "kill me, kill me!" bit at the conclusion of many said sets, I'll be a goddamned monkey's uncle if he ever improves without taking an INSANE amount of drugs.)

On the other hand, as you said, Arnold's still around.  Franco, Frank, Robby, Ed, Danny and Lou are still kicking; hell, some of them still actually look pretty good, particularly to be old farts.  People could slam the Mentzers, Viator, Serge Nubret, Sergio et al. for not making it, but perhaps apart from Sergio, none of those guys used the kind of doses gh15 would blush about.  Nah ... I knew Mike, and he was always quite candid about his drug use.  He even tried to talk me into using them Smiley  And yeah, he loved some goodly doses of Deca, and he was very fond of Dianabol, too -- but you can ask other fellas who know/knew him and I'm sure they'd attest that he was FAR from a drug-dependent builder.  (When someone can bench 350 and full squat 500 for a few reps as a fucking fifteen-year-old, well ... that pretty much says it all about Mike.)

But to back up:  I don't know what got Sergio apart from eating a bunch of shit for decades on end.  Greasy burgers and fries, greasy pizza, tons of Coke ... maybe that, plus reports of his "Eeets tyme tdo garow, baybee!" alleged habit of downing handfuls of CIBA DBols like candy, lead to his early demise.  Mike became a heavy smoker in no later than the early eighties (probably partly to emulate Jones and, to a lesser extent, Casey Viator), Ray had serious health problems and I've many times read that Serge smoked a good bit, too.  Plus, we all know Casey got REALLY fucking fat after he retired and, as a younger man at least, he was smoking a pack a day by the time he was 15-years-old, LOL.  Even if he quit in the 80's, it's small wonder he, the Mentzer Bros., Serge and even Sergio croaked when they did.  (Incidental note:  as much as I like Markus Ruehl as a very funny and super-cool guy, we all know he at least used to be a smoker on top of using an exorbitant amount of drugs.  His lobster-red body betrays a BP that's got to be off the charts, and a hemoglobin level that's probably north of 30 (16-18 is considered "high normal," FWIW).)

To speak to the topic at hand, I know I fear death.  Wasn't it Descartes who wrote, "Cogito Ergo Sum" -- I think, therefore I am?  Consciousness defines our existence.  If we're doomed to simply rot in the ground when we die/lose consciousness, fuck, yes, I'm afraid of that.  Why do you think so many atheists, agnostics and humanists ultimately embrace religion?  The concept of an afterlife is certainly something I can't prove or demonstrate but, as a pragmatist, I choose to believe because it serves my own selfish purposes; i.e., the idea that I and all of my loved ones -- among many, of course -- will transcend the mortal coil.  Otherwise, I'd be hopelessly arrested by the finality of the whole thing.

maybe try Castrol Super Clean.

That and Chaos' suggestion are both good.

You could also try oven cleaner spray (NOT the fume-free kind, which is a lie anyhow:  it has noxious fumes, too! Cheesy).  Easy-Off will literally strip the paint off of a battleship's hull.  I'm not kidding, because I've seen it done Smiley  (Yes, of course, I tried to suck it off through a garden hose because I just enjoy sucking so much -- no homo, naturally.)

7  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: I love myself on: July 08, 2014, 02:53:14 PM
I'm working through my old flames one by one aborting missions as I am going through some changes.

And this girl I politely told that we will no longer dip our nuggets into each other, sent me a long rant which was resumed by "....you love yourself" put forward in a negative projection.

That statement had me confused to shits....am I expected to hate myself? or hold my self in low regards? I always associated hating oneself with mental illness, severe depression and unhappiness.

Sometimes women rant without thinking through the rational behind the words they are projecting. In my response to that I sent her this short clip and got a paragraph of F word filled texts.

Sometimes? Cheesy

Try more like all of the time.  Women are almost completely emotionally driven.  

When you pin them on something wild/stupid/batshit insane they've said, though, they've usually had enough time to process the garbage they spewed; and given the many imprecisions in any spoken language, they'll find at least a few ways to spin some of their bullshit into seeming gold.  They are also great about obfuscating the picture with appeals to emotion and a dozen other fallacious arguments ... in my experience, they're especially fond of strawmandering and laughably stupid exaggerations (e.g., "Oh, yeah, I'm wrong; I'm just such a retard compared to you and should just shut my trap.  You know everything and I don't know a damned thing, so I'm 'sorry' for being so stupid to feel this way," etc.).

Because men, including me, are fucking dumbasses too, we'll eventually capitulate if the girl is otherwise awesome.  My current fiance is one such person.  Emotional?  Oh, God.  Prone to that "woe is me" and super-extremism?  Double-check.  But she also has a heart bigger than Texas (Yin/Yang; the people who are most easily hurt also tend to be the most simpatico).  She thinks I can do precious little wrong -- HA! Cheesy -- and still, after two years, hangs on my every word.  Calming her down from those estrogen-fueled reveries is tiring but ultimately worth it IMO ... you gotta weigh the pros and cons, brosephs.

Pardon my digression, Skorp.  I know you're a smart dude.  And you are totally right.  Let's assume for a moment that what this gal said is true -- that you "love yourself."

As you said, what's wrong with that?  Consider the alternatives.  Love is a pretty binary thing in my mind.  There are certainly degrees of love, but ultimately, you either love someone in some capacity or you simply do not.  

As such, if you aren't self-loving, then you are, again, left with several other alternatives, none of which are what I'd regard as desirable.  You could be various shades of ambivalent about yourself, and then there are all sorts of grades of actual self-loathing, one level of which tends to resort in either alcoholism, drug abuse and/or swinging from a rafter :-|

That comes back around to all of that nonsense women talk about liking a "confident" man, which they're often too stupid to differentiate from a dude acting like a completely arrogant prick.  (This is especially the case with young women, like 26 and under.  For dumb women, however, I reckon you could set no relative age limit; they'll still fall for a jackass at 52 as easily as they did at 15.)  Where's the consistency? Smiley  

I say if you want consistency and some semblance of logic, go to Vegas.  You know there the odds are against you and, to some part, you can at least use math to calculate your chances of beating the house.  And, of course, the women there don't require negotiation or any real effort to snag provided you've got a fat wallet.  Mad money = mad, top-drawer pussy.

Or so I imagine, anyway.  Before I was engaged either time, I really wanted to go to that Bunny Ranch place HBO advertised.  Most of the girls there weren't anything to write home about, but I thought Isabella Soprano would be a truly wild ride.  Alas ... Wink

I think it's fair that any man carrying 80 more pounds of muscle than his peers shouldn't have to work.

I mean, he's human royalty when packing that much beef.  Every girl wants him, every guy wants to he him.

It's insulting to think a person weighing 260 pounds at under 10% body fat should ever take orders from a "boss".

Rob, you are a trip, man Smiley  I don't think I'll ever be able to really get inside your head, LOL.

Phil can be as confident as he wants to be!  Three Sandows at his home says he can talk the talk, and walk the walk.  Right now, he is the front runner to win again this year, but never underestimate Kai Greene.

Can Kai Greene beat him? Perhaps - and Kai came very, very close to doing that 2 years ago.

Which novel is this from?  Where are the Sith and SuperStar Destroyers?  This looks like some Rated PG Road Warrior BS.  Thanks Disney.

If you glimpsed just a snippet of any SW movie, you'd see a bunch of dilapidated, worn-out or just plain primitive-looking shit in "boring" desert, ice or forest locations.

Watch the entire flicks, and you'll see a whole smattering of locales, complete with lots of action, explosions, light sabers, Sith lightning, etc. (and I'm just thinking about the OT here). 

Abrams' new movie will be a visual spectacle if nothing else.  And the plot and acting will definitely be superior to Lucas' limp-dicked "prequel" efforts.

Fuck you. No he did't and they wont. Fuck your "Black Hebrew" bullshit. Hebrews are black. No need for the color description as if they are anything else?

I bet it's news to Ron Avidan that he's "black."  Or Natalie Portman, or Richard Dreyfuss, or Bill Shatner, or, or, or ... :roll:

Wiggs, please, for the love of all that you hold sacred, desist with this STUPID "hurhur black Hebrew!" shit already.  If it was ever supposed to be funny, guess what?

It's not anymore Cheesy

And if you were serious ... eh, I can never tell around here.  We've got self-described intellectuals who embrace science when it suits their purposes (e.g., skin pigmentation research) yet, the very next, they'll invoke endless question-begging fallacies when it comes to carbon-dating those ancient dinosaur bones because "the Bible" seems to suggest the world's only a few millennia old.  Ask them how they came to that conclusion, and it's simply a tired, lame restatement of premise and conclusion :roll:

Incidentally, you know who else suggested a mass union between black-skinned Africans and the Arabic Jews resulted in modern "Hebrews"?

13  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Powerlifting / Strongman / Raw quasi-powerlifting again ... technique? on: May 29, 2014, 02:48:39 PM
Hiya all.

After a long hiatus from training and especially the big 3, I'm kicking around the idea of training those lifts again with some seriousness.  I'm not really out to do heavy singles or doubles, but I probably will find myself working up to, and trying to best, 5-6 RMs on a consistent basis.

I think I know how to squat and pull well enough, but benching -- flat and incline -- gives me a little pause.  These days, everybody and their fucking uncle have a different take on how someone should set up.  That T-Nation Chris Thibaudeau fella says drawing the scapula down and back is for shirted lifters only; he thinks raw lifters should bench with traps "shrugged" and ... well, that's about all I gather from him.  No word on arching the back, nothing about elbow-tucking -- ?

Any input's appreciated, though I should caution you that I know I'm all homo, my mom's box has seen many of your mouths (and probably worse), etc. Wink

Sincerely, thanks.

15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Mike Mentzer's point of view on the 1980 Mr Olympia on: May 27, 2014, 03:03:02 PM
I have heard from more than a few that Arnold helped Mike out several times with money. Toward the end of his life the feud was over between the two.

It was.  In his final few years, Mike actually spoke pretty highly of Arnold.  Among other things, he regarded him as the best bodybuilder ever, better than Yates or Haney.

I do think he deserved to win that contest against Kal, though.  Kal's legs were pathetic next to Mike's.  He had a big chest, great biceps and ... eh.  Mike was way more complete. 

Also, I know he held Robby Robinson in fairly high regard, at least physique-wise.  He said the second he saw Robby disrobe at the '75 Mr. America, nobody else had a chance.

Yates was hard as hell.

But Ramy is triple bigger than prime Yates.

No, he's not.  He reportedly weighed about 280 onstage in his best condition, and he was nowhere near as hard as a pre-contest Yates weighing 269.  He is also taller and a shitload of his weight's in his quads and ass.

The only thing he has on Dorian is biceps.  I like Rami, but let's be real here ... bullshit judging or no, there are reasons he's not even top 5 in the Olympia yet -- and apart from Kai and Phil, that's against a rather pathetic field vs. the Levrones, Rays, Wheelers et al. Dorian was whipping at his best.

goodfellas, casino, godfather 2, a clockwork orange, barry lindon, eyes wide shut, full metal jacket, the notorious big (because i love lil kim that filt whore)

Damn, man.

I'm impressed, Halo! Smiley  Those are all good choices.  I don't see many people who have even heard of Barry Lyndon.

I do think Full Metal Jacket is a bit overrated, though.  It's really two movies:  the Good Bootcamp Movie, and the rather lame Vietnam "obviously filmed on Pinewood Studios" Movie.  

But Kubrick is still the man.  And Sorcese Smiley  Goodfellas IS good any day of the week, even if I have it memorized pretty much line for line.

A few other rare, forgotten or just notable goodies:

*A Simple Plan
*Frailty
*No Country For Old Men JUST for how creepy nuts Anton is
*The Wild Bunch
*Extreme Prejudice
*Southern Comfort

Oh, and Body Heat is largely forgotten these days.  Kat Turner was HOT in that.  Mein Gott, she was fucking hot.

do they have a serious mental disease?

more common than you think at gyms

Nah, that's pretty common in many of the gyms I've frequented.  One country club kid of maybe 17-20 used to be training biceps when I'd come into the gym and he'd still be slaving away on them when I left.  I felt bad for the lad, all no homo.  He was supersetting from one thing to the next, constantly going to failure, even using good form.  But the kid had a build I would've been embarrassed to have when I was 14 and maybe six months into training seriously.

15+ hours/wk. might be a hair extreme, though ... best I can tell, most of the skinny guys or fellas who have been stuck for years typically don't train much more than 12 hrs./wk. (if of course you could call it "training"; a lot of them bench for hours, curl for ages and do tons of overhead presses in a Smith, then do a few token sets of pulldowns and leg extensions). 

I don't personally know anyone who actually trains more than 8-10 hrs./wk. and has any kind of size, including guys who have been on for 10-20 years.  I make my best gains training about a third that TOPS, but I am starting to get old and have a lot of intermittent joint pains now.  The days of awesome upper body gains from Heavy Duty-type 35 min. workout 2-3 times week and skipping legs might be over ...  more of a pumping-oriented routine might be indicated, 'specially since I'd like to be in this past 40 Smiley

But I'll skill skip legs unless I want to compete again (naturally gifted legs, especially calves.  Combined with small ankles, my 17" untrained calves look better than some fatass permabulker's 19" ... and if I start training them again ... mwahahahahahahahahaha Grin  They blow up even natty, thank the Old Gods and the New).

20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: How much do you bench? on: April 25, 2014, 03:40:41 PM
I've been working on my bench hard.

I hit 140kg x 8 on monday.

Last competition I hit 150kg with a pause (which felt ridiculously easy).

6'1 and about 228lbs atm. I am fat though, prob 14% body fat (want to cut down but I want to hit 300kg deadlift first). My strength drastically tails off once my bodyfat is sub 10%.

Which leaves me with a conundrum; either chase strength gains at 12-15% body fat (which I must admit is more enjoyable than pure bodybuilding). Or focus on titrating calories down and becoming sexy once again.

You could always compromise, m'man.  I don't think you'd lose a ton of strength if you slowly came down a bodyfat percentage, or even two; it's all about planning and how you burn it off.  With a decent lifting regimen you should at LEAST be able to maintain during/after that.

Regardless, you're keen to hit that big pull first.  Do that, then think about fricking about with your diet.  Otherwise, I reckon you'll never forgive yourself.

21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: I need some mentoring here guys. on: April 25, 2014, 03:25:23 PM
I'm having a real problem accepting American women and their multitude of moral, ethical and personality flaws. I know I'm not perfect by any means. But I do try to lead a righteous lifestyle. And I follow dietary laws of Bible (no pork, no seafood without scales, no non-split hove animal with doesn't chew its cud) and most importantly following the Ten Commandments. Nothing unreasonable.

Perhaps it's because I'm older and tolerate much less than I would 10 years ago, but it seems as of over the last year, I'll date and leave a woman really fast if it doesn't go my way. I find this to be a troubling trend. I don't think what I'm asking for is unreasonable, perhaps I need to hang out in Churches? It's getting quiet frustrating and I'm starting to feel guilty about it. Yes, I am a beautiful man with glasses. I've always been able to get 8s and up (except when I went through my fat, depressed stage). But it is no longer just about looks. I must be able to tolerate living with this woman. She must live by the same principles, she must be Hebrew, she should be classy, she should have domestic skills or be willing to learn. No children preferred but I'll accept her having 1 little Hebrew, but that's it. She must work.

The bad part in all this is I could pull ass all day especially with me in decent shape but I don't want just empty fornication. I'm done with that. I want something real, but I'm not settling. I think I may have to find a Hebrew female from another country or I should move outta Vegas because I think it's jaded me. We are notorious for having wack ass broads.

Ahhhhh. That felt good to get out. Thanks for listening.

First, lose this "Hebrew" bullshit and the delusion that you're a "beautiful man with glasses."  Last I saw, you were a pretty fat black fellow. 

If you're a Jew, well, Shalom.  If you're not, as I said, the revisionist history crap doesn't endear you to anyone, women alike.  As I've told you before, the notion that black people ruled the world until 2-3 centuries ago, then fumbled all of the marbles is a self-defeating testament to "mighty blackie." 

If I need to explain why, you'll have to try harder indeed to disappoint me; suffice to say, for history to have revised itself so profoundly, so dramatically across the entire globe (the North Americas, Europe, Asia, the greater Russian territories) would entail some SERIOUS white-on-black ass-kicking. 

... Just how did that happen, particularly if "black Hebrews" are "God's chosen people"?

Kibbitzing aside, you don't have a problem with American women.  They have a problem with YOU and your crazy ideas.

My advice?  Get in shape, stop spouting quite so much bullshit to everyone around you (remember, a bar is NOT Getbig) and just relax. 

... and if that doesn't work, order a call girl.  She won't give a flying fuck about Hebrews, aliens, your false prediction of the world's end in 2012 or any other such thing.  All she'll care about is how much you'll pay her for a blowjob.

Have fun with that.

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.

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.

starting to lose my marbles here Lips sealed

fucking hell

Maybe you shouldn't have gotten rid of baby-mama, AH Smiley  Even a crazy broad can be better than making it with your hand.

Of course, you could always move to Thailand.  Or Vegas, though the high-drawer pussy would be costly as hell.
