Whats funny is people are saying, King ruined his physique by chasing size and then saying, Oh King why did you do that? why are you trying to get bigger? King's finished and all that bullshit...
(A) King didn't ruin his physique, he is an IFBB professional this is his job to bring it on show day and thats what he does. In the proccess he tries many things to see what formula works, WE ALL DO, its just human to do so, its a learning game!
(B) How can any IFBB pro not try to play the size game when that is what the judges keep rewarding at all the shows, especially the big daddy of bodybuilding shows, (The O).
(C) When have any of you ever thought to yourself, "Oh OK, I think I'm big enough, I think I'll stop training hard or stop taking whatever I'm taking, I don't need to get any bigger?" I'm willing to bet never because thats the kind of mentality that bodybuilders have, no matter what, we are never big enough. So I would imagine its ten times harder for the pros to not want to get bigger. And Imagine how much more motivitating it is when you have supplement contracts, when you have magazine showings, guest posings, and then stepping on stage with the best of the best, damn right you're gonna wanna play the size game and get bigger, you wanna put that WOW effect into the people you step on stage in front of!
King said it himself, those days of the 99 nationals are gone, thats not what fills seats at the O and the Arnold, thats not what sells magazines today, You gotta look like the computer generated Incredible Hulk (not the one from the 70's TV show), the trick is, like King said, to have that SCARY-ASS size and come in FREAKY shredded, THATS WHAT WILL TURN HEADS. Coming in smaller and SUPER shredded is just not enough!
King knows whats up and what the judges want, he made it this far, not just by turning into an IFBB pro which is hard as is, but being a RECOGNIZED one that gets people talking about him. He made the top 10 in the Olympia in HIS FIRST YEAR AS A PRO, people forget that!!!
And because he tried something new, people are saying he's finished?
What a load of shit!!
All I gotta say is Keep doing what you're doing King!!! Your day will come!
