This video proves nothing those who know already know: technique is fantastic ... and so, too, is size and strength.

In many ways, being in possession of a considerable degree of either can essentially "neutralize" the other and put the outcome again in the hands of chance and circumstance.


Skill, power, conditioning and to a lessor extend size and strength. If you have ever rolled on the mats in submission wrestling you can see big guy after big guy get submitted by guys with 14" arms. Same goes for boxing. I was the buff 23 year old bodybuilder who wanted to box back in the day.  I went into the gym with a guy that looked like he never lifted but he was an amateur fighter. Got my ass handed to me. He punched like a mule with a lot of power.  That's when I learned it's better to go for a run than do 20 sets of biceps. I learned from that and I ended four and one in boxing when I realize that getting hit in the face hurts and quit. I bet that jui jitsu guy in the video could beat the top ten Olympia contenders this year. It's just the truth.  It is apples to oranges though.

I have seen Kai on a local NY tv news show. I will give him this he is a good talker. He can think on his feet so to speak. He can stand in front of people and give a good account of himself.

Just to remember all the varieties of bodybuilding movements I would use "Keys to the Universe" by Bill Pearl.  It's a massive book of just about any bodybuilding exercise you can think of out side of machines.

Instead of a world class Jui jitsu guy how about a steroid bodybuilder against a county champion high school wrestler? The results would be the same. That bodybuilder just looks out of shape. The delusion of muscle but no gas in the tank and zero conditioning. The jui jitsu guy you can tell at a glance he is in condition.

If that's true a 100 million guys plus  would have problems.  
32  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Anyone in Vegas this weekend? on: April 18, 2014, 03:30:17 PM
Never been to Vegas. I live 40 miles away from Atlantic city. I stay over a casino once a month hitting restaurants, clubs and comedy shows. My wife says Vegas makes Atlantic city look like a hell hole. I have to get out there.

Belt needs to match the shoes, son.  Huh

No, who told you that?
35  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Expensive Clothes on: April 18, 2014, 03:16:24 PM
I don't know what back woods or ghetto some of you guys come from but if you want to look GQ you have to dress the part. A $ 50 rip off tee shirt, jeans and air Jordan or colorful clown sneakers make you look like a buffoon.  Take a girl to a restaurant dressed like this guy and the girl will creme in their thong.  Why am I wasting my age acquired wisdom? Youth is wasted on the youth.

electric cars are a joke

where do you think that electricity is coming from Roll Eyes

You simpleton. Generating mass electricity for electric cars is more cost and waste efficient than filling an individual car with gas.   One nuclear, coal or natural gas plant generating electricity could provide for many cities worth of electricity.
39  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Lat Pulldowns Q - New JJ GENOVA trains back on: April 18, 2014, 04:41:59 AM
Doing a dead hang pull up or chin up then going all the way up is a brutal exercise. What guys do are partials. Not going all the way up is the biggest cheat. The bar should touch the upper region of your chest or come close. You want to get you elbows down to fully engage the lats through a full range of motion.

Pull downs have turned into a super cheating exercise. Guys that couldn't do 10 strict pull ups use 250lbs plus jerking the bar as they lean back doing the pull down. Stay upright. It will limit the weight but you will really feel it in the lats. If you want to do a row then do a row with a barbell, dumbbell or cable. Again pull the bar to the upper chest. Don't take a crazy wide grip on the bar. Shoulder width will do it. A really wide grip limits the travel of the elbows from full extension to all the way down. It's that lat muscle that is pulling your arms down so think about the travel from where your elbows are.

These idiots could have gotten their ass kicked when back up never came. Do these white boys think that street drug guys don't have a means to protect them self?
41  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Arnold Schwarzenegger muscle gallery on: April 17, 2014, 02:40:48 PM
Who cares about strength ? This is a BODYBUILDING board.

Some people are tired of Arnold, no doubt about it.......... they just dont bother clicking on this Thread .


Bodybuilders don't care about single reps. In the world of weightlifting Olympic lifters should be considered the sprinters and bodybuilders the marathon runners. Bodybuilders are doing many exercises in general with a lot of sets. Olympic lifters and Powerlifters use a few exercises for low sets of low reps. I bet many power lifters couldn't keep up with Arnold back in the day for his two a day routines 6 days a week. Doing 20 sets a body part they would be gasping for breath.
42  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Swimmers on Steroids on: April 17, 2014, 07:44:43 AM
Crazy comments here. So the elite world class swimmers pictured here have too much muscle? They would swim faster if they reduced the amount of muscle they have? Swimmers shouldn't be lean because fat floats? I know getbig has never been known for intellectual discussion but this takes a new precedent.
43  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: wand sonnen brawl on: April 16, 2014, 07:56:28 PM
Sonnen brings  excitement to MMA. I just wished he was as good as a fighter as he is a talker.
44  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Water Sports on: April 16, 2014, 07:54:03 PM

i couldnt date her after. couldnt date a chick who didnt respect herself.

as for squirters i cant count the number i've been with. 3 of my exs were.

Freaks are fun. Vanilla girls no matter how hot they look get boring.
45  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Getting a mani and pedi right now bitches. The Phil Heath Special. on: April 16, 2014, 07:41:24 PM
Should a man have soft hands?  When I shake a guy's hand and he has soft hands it's a little creepy.  A man's hand should feel like he lifts weights. That he does something physical like he's capable of doing manly work.  Soft hands scream I don't work on cars. I can't load a pick up truck. I'm just an metro beta office worker. 
46  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Getting a mani and pedi right now bitches. The Phil Heath Special. on: April 16, 2014, 07:35:15 PM
Personally I don't get it. I keep my nails clean and crisply cut by myself. No girl wants to see a guy with buffed and clear polished nails. It's faggy.  A nail salon french ends on a guy screams girly.  
47  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Ultimate Warrior died from cardiovascular disease. on: April 16, 2014, 05:05:19 PM
You should have your sugar levels checked, triglycerides (blood fats), cholesterol, HDL, LDL and their ratios, blood pressure, and cardiac inflammation through a crp test. Resting heart rate is another heart health indicator. The stronger the heart muscle the slower it is at rest. Many people with high blood pressure do flush red, not all.

It might be a silent killer but many times the signs are ignored or not noticed. I know a guy that would get exhausted walking on a treadmill at a good clip quickly.  His response was look a me I lift heavy weights. I'm just not an endurance athlete. I would say having no endurance for this guy was an indicator because he had a heart attack lifting weights.  There are basically two types of heart attacks. Simplistically speaking there is a clog or an electrical short.  

Testosterone replacement law suits are flying now because a study has shown they increase the risk of heart attacks.  They are unsure of the mechanism but some speculate it thickens the blood. If this is true imagine the increased risk taking recreational bodybuilding amounts especially if you are in your 40's or 50's?

Wow, these things cost almost $500 dollars with shipping.  Any cheaper versions anywhere?
49  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Steroid Induced Behavior Changes! on: April 15, 2014, 06:22:25 PM
Steroids increase aggression and confidence. It also gives you a mental feeling of well being. When you go off steroids and stays off long enough for it to leave your system you start to feel nervous and meek. Many feel depressed.  Then the psychological craving to feel right again you need a fix of another cycle. Anyone that says hormones don't effect your mental well being has never been around a boy or a girl going through puberty.

Didn't Gal ruin his kidneys with bodybuilding drugs and blew out his shoulder?
