If HowieW were a vagina, "he" would smell of rotten tuna and ass... That's how bad "he" is!

In other words, I would smell just like the hole you popped out of ,at birth Tongue

Howie come on man! the team u guys are juiced the gills as any other competitors in other shows. Some of the best conditioned most ripped bb'ers ive seen have been the ams in the team u. You dont get that way from just diet and train your ass off.
This may the worst "side effect" from drug use in bdoybuilding.
It gets a lot of guys thinking that NOBODY could ever look decent unless they use a medicine cabinet full of drugs.
I competed without a drug in my body from 87-95 and did just fine in regional NON tested NPC shows, even won a few . Considering the fact that I anothing special in the world of bodybuilding, I think this proves you can build a decent physique without a boatload of juice.

How cool would it be for Howie to host 'Insomnia Radio' at midnight every night to help people fall asleep while listening to 'Bodybuilding Improvement' tips!

I love this idea! Howie, get on this!
This is funny as hell. You guys can joke about it, but imagine my poor science students in class.
I am always amazed some poor , bored to tears kid doesn't throw himself out one of my lab windows.
Soooooo, the next time you think you are in bad situation, just imagine how much worse it would be locked in a room hearing me lecture on zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Post terminated  due to exceeding the rambling quoto of get big world

Screw supplements. Get HowieW in there to talk about how to improve the state of bodybuilding - 45 minute, ad-free, non-interrupted monologues by him on said subject would make for great radio every week Cool
How about my physics lectures on tape as well, talk about zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz zzzzzzzzz  Undecided

I love that old leg curl/leg extension combination. I trained on a few of those.

I trained on those as well. I miss the old hardcore traing attitudes and work ethic. I don't miss the crappy, squeeky equipment however.
32  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: An open letter to Bob Chic on: April 02, 2008, 10:14:29 AM
Well, Howie, Bob can't be any clearer. He is not taking any responsibility for drug use and says it is a matter of choice. Can you believe this guy? That must be what Jim M and Ben W say, too. Very sad that bodybuilding has become bodychemistry.

I don't want any part of this professional bullshit. The system is pathetic and dangerous. No thanks, but there is no choice. If I were a young guy starting out I would have a go at competing against these guys and remain natural. I think I know enough to build up big enough to come close to what they have. Wouldn't take much to build bigger calves than most of them! I guess I am the last guy who believes this because everyone else has abandoned the ship.

Almost everyone believes you need drugs and that is why it is tolerated. No wonder bodybuilding remains a sport that is frowned upon and is a cult enterprise.

Bob Chick officially killed this sport today on Getbig.

No Vince ,you are NOT the last guy that thinks the extreme drug use ship has gone over the falls ( I agree with you on that). Bob is not guilty of killing the sport of pro bodybuilding. He states the current reality of the situation.
Most guys like us are NOT part of the hardcore scene. It appears they know what health and legal risks thay are taking. It also appears to be true that a lot of the fans demand to see drugged up freaks to buy a ticket.
If more fans were like us , the IFBB would drug test and be thrilled the fans continued to support the shows.
33  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Luke Wood Gains 50lbs in 3 Months (pics) on: April 02, 2008, 09:36:27 AM
I was actually 220lbs in November at 5'11. I was only 6% here. I was running, boxing alot and hardly doing any weight training. It was the fitness and healthiest i have ever felt. But i still have some unfinished business so im coming back. Now at 275lbs i feel great still! All drugs ha??? LOL!! i wish it was that easy!!! Roll Eyes

I will retire from bodybuilding one day when i please! Bodybuilding will not retire me!! Wink
Good luck at the O Luke and keep that waist small.

The 1st one by a country mile. HTH Grin
yeah, but at least I don't take myself as serious as some of the losers that get pissed off by me  Cheesy
35  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: An open letter to Bob Chic on: April 02, 2008, 09:30:07 AM
Congratulations HowieW for creating quality threads on this board.
Thanks but my dog is of the same mind set of most get biggers when asked about them ..
36  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Is HowieW now a Gimmick? on: April 02, 2008, 09:27:08 AM
Howie, stay and stir them up!
LOL, ok, plus we have some clever zingers and insults from Bruse, Mass, etc
I don't which is more pathetic:
1. A middle aged never was /wanna be like me posting seruous threads on a gossip board
or
2. Other get big posters that get mad and stirred up over said posts
37  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: An open letter to Bob Chic on: April 02, 2008, 09:14:04 AM
Now everyone has had it spelled out what the IFBB thinks. If you don't want to take drugs then that is your choice. Enter the natural contests. If you want to be a pro and don't want to take drugs then too bad, just retire. Nice one, Bob.

I am on your side when it comes to this issue Vince. However, Bob Chic has one valid pt here.
The vast majority of the pros want to be free to use whatever drugs they please. If even a few pros felt like us, then it might be a real issue within the IFBB pro ranks.
The majority of the fans and promoters seem pretty content as well.
I never won a national championship or got close to a pro card, so this issue is more academic than personal for me.
I chose the mainstream career path and have no regrets. Some decide to take the legal and health risks and go for it.
I think it sad they have to take those risks, but that is the current reality.

38  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: THIS is why these scamming Supplement Companies make more and more cash on: April 02, 2008, 09:04:30 AM
Creatine the only supplement that works, was checking out some protien supplements that had only trace amounts of carbs they were so exspensive for a two week supply that i could buy 40 pounds of quality fish for the same price.

Exactly! Lot better to buy fresh, basic food like fish and chicken breasts, etc.
The supplement industry taps into the lazy factor in all of us.
BodyFortress sell their stuff in Wal_mart and it is decent for he cheaper price
39  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Whoa! Amanda Dunbar sure does get heavy in Offseason!!! on: April 02, 2008, 07:42:08 AM
Off season Amanda looks like a normal woman.  Women should just really stay off the steroids.

"1"
The above comparison pics kinda proves that pt

sorry Cool

42  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Is HowieW now a Gimmick? on: April 02, 2008, 07:10:46 AM
Howie W please Kill yourself. Thank you and have a good day
Did you wake up this dumb or did you take a stupid pill?
I mean c'mon , this is the best insult you can come up with?
43  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: An open letter to Bob Chic on: April 02, 2008, 07:09:26 AM
I think Howie meant being successful IN THE IFBB   Wink

Your response is akin to saying anyone can be a football star, not in the NFL but through different organizations like flag football or the local weekend team  Roll Eyes


You simply can't argue the fact that if you want to be a "star" in bodybuilding and grace the pages/covers of FLEX, you have to be in the IFBB i.e. you have to take drugs.   You do more sidestepping than the people on dancing with the stars  Kiss
Under the current system, you are 100% correct, no question about it, you would need to take BB drugs to get the look needed today to win a major show. No sidstep on my part I always said that.
My issue is simply a legal one. The drug use that is required is in the country (USA) illegal for the most part.
Where the confusion comes in is that the legal reality of drugs is NOT my personal belief.
But a personal belief won't be much of a leagl defense when you get busted.
44  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: An open letter to Bob Chic on: April 02, 2008, 06:07:58 AM
its hardly sad, its right on the money.....you and Howie are trying to limit the human imagination, you want some kind of controlled experiment conducted by superiors, like Marx. But the superiors are not looking for ways to increase hypertorphy so the people have taken upon themselves.

You may think they are wrong but human progress is not linear it zig zags, sometimes dips but is always moving forward,  you guys want to stop it because your dont have faith in human creativity and ingenuity.

If humans can imagine it then they should be free to seek out ways to bring that imagination to reality.  That is how we have progressed since the beginning of time.


One problem, however. It is the law we are talking about not opinion here
45  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: An open letter to Bob Chic on: April 02, 2008, 04:36:51 AM
I appreciate your letter, Howie...no need for apologies for having beliefs that others may or may not share. You're a true fan of the sport in every sense of the word.

I don't believe BB will ever have to go through the witchhunting thats going on in pro Baseball due to the simple fact that we aren't even on the radar screen when it comes to money and interest...

It wasn't drug testing, etc that ended the AAU, it was the NPC that ended them....case and point: the NPC has not only endured, but grown in every aspect over the years having more shows and members than at any point in it's history.

Your own statement kind of answers itself:


"In is my strong belief that NO pro or top amatuer athlete should have to risk breaking the law just to compete fairly. "

No pro or top amateur HAS to risk breaking the law, nor do thay HAVE to compete unfairly. They can choose to compete in the drug tested shows, natural organizations...ensuring they are on equal par with others that share the same mindset.

At the end of the day, it the fans that dictate what level of competition they want to support....and they have spoken loudly....not just in BB, but every sport...they want bigger, stronger, faster, and freakier...thats why there were 10,000 people at the Olympia, and 10 people at the last natural show.

It's not like the athletes that compete are exactly chomping at the bit rallying for drug testing, either....it is what it is.


Thanks for the thoughtful and intellogent reply Bob. I am glad someone in bodybuilding I respect (you) realizes that I have a real passion for the sport and respect for the bodybuilders in the IFBB.
I am too much of a musclehead to NOT want to go to shows.
You are right , if the grown men/woman don't mind all the risks, it is their choice.
I will do my best to shut up now, sit back and enjoy the contests and the great physiques on the IFBB and NPC stages.
Howard
46  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: If you had to write "Open Letters" on internet forums on: April 01, 2008, 08:04:52 PM
Would they be novel-length meltdowns that nobody bothered to read?
LOL, i started a cottage industry of like minded threads.
47  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: An open letter to Bob Chic on: April 01, 2008, 08:03:52 PM
Howie has a point, however, fans want to see freaks...the IFBB knows this.  The only ones to take a stand are the competitors.  They of course won't because they're too dumb too.  They'll risk serious health problems later in life, why, simple lack of options.  It's not as if it was, become a doctor or be a bodybuilder..hahah  Most of these guys are idiots, so you'll never see a change in the sport.  Personally, I find it amusing to watch people inject all types of shit into themselves, just for a little cash and "love for the sport".  Translation: Most drugged up bodybuilders have yes, a drug problem...phrase it how you will, but it's a drug addiction all the same.
I could careless if every pro today dropped dead of a heart attack, due to their stupidity...I'd probably laugh. Grin  Who decided one day...yeah, I'm going to take insulin, gh, steroid and be jacked?  It's idiotic.  95% of the country would agree there. Yes, it's doing what you "love", but the same could be said for a heroin junkie..."he's just livin the dream, doing what he loves to do"...hahah
Typical of most on this board to throw in a "meltdown" or STFU, type comment.  To form some kind of real discussion with less than intelligent people, can be a stretch.
Meltdown.
Nobody cares.
etc, etc.
haha, Oh man.
Thanka and great reply. LOL, I may be rambling at times but at least I cam complete a thought and make a reply.
These guys always resort to simple basic insults and have no ammo for an intelligent reply.
What they don't quite get is that the simple insults are baseless and easy to laugh at then ignore.
I doubt I could have become a pro, my few humble gifts were in academics and teaching.
I do enjoy the overall bodybuilding lifestyle (without extreme drug use of course).
I would prefer to see the big time pro shows like the ARNOLD with big time production and have the pros on a  lot less drugs. In fact , I would go to the Olmypia and MORE pro events, if they did that, seriously.
I suspect most of the biggest naysayers never even go to shows and by tickets?
Why the IFBB pro div would cater to "that crowd" seems pretty dumb. I honestly think they the IFBB pro div could do a LOT better $$$ and sponser wise with a less freaky pro. Look at the most successful health club/gym chains? Hardly an attraction for steroid induced mass freaks. Overall, their are lot more people like me , who are NOT rich but have some disposable income to spend of bodybuilding related stuff and new, state of the art gyms.
Of course we will always have the crowd that gets into Pro Wrasslin, Jerry Springer and Who Wants to Marry a Midget, kind of shows .
48  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: An open letter to Bob Chic on: April 01, 2008, 07:51:41 PM
once again.. take drugs out of bodybuilding and you no longer have it.. is that what you want howie?... you truly dont see how flawed your arguement is.. let it rest.. Roll Eyes  send bob a pm.. it is old in the forum..
Ok, so threads on the WWE bout  or thugs attacking some kids is more relevent in bdoybuilding? wtf?
Granted , drugs to make a more impressive physique, but mush of it is presently against the US drug laws.
Driving 100 mph might be cool as well, but you can't use that as defense when the cop stops you.
Your flaw is in trying to defend an illegal practice that is even against the rules of the sport,based on that the pros look better drugged. How one looks does NOT change the law or make a credible defense.
49  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: An open letter to Bob Chic on: April 01, 2008, 07:48:05 PM
I don't have any negative opinion towards you I just thought you were done with the drug talk.  Smiley
I was but I read Bobs response that drug use was a pros choice or he could retire. I felt that required a response.

meltdown #2
Why is a thoughtful reply with no threats or emotion considered a meltdown? hehehehe.
Look, if you don't agree with my topic argue the pt.
In all honesty you sound fairly dumb, juvinille and silly when you make ad naseum lame silly replys to me and posts like mine. You want GET BIg to be some wacky silly JR HS place and I don't fit in.
Well too bad, I am not going away, so deal with it chucko Hehe
I staked my get big calim long ago and you idiots are not driving me off it.
Ya gonna have to deal with me or ignore me.
Thanks for playing, Howard
