Mike, in the midst of my ongoing criticism, I just want to emphasize that your physique improvement IS very noticable + very commendable.  Self-improvement is always cool.

My only quibble is how I define a "competitive bodybuilder" vs what 'Spin and others define it as, and this definition's implications for bb as a sport.

Again, good work, + good luck whatever you decide to do.


Post some pics











Mike you look awsome bro, compete in that show for the experience and also the reward of all this  hard work. Everything you learn from this you will be able to apply to competitions after you do you're show in June...

Keep it up bro we are all behind you!

I agree with Mindspin here.  Plus, doing a bodybuilding show, really, is all about building an obtical illusion.  You see these dudes walking around the crowd, and then see them on stage, they look about 50lbs bigger.

Mike looks good in these pics, not insane, but good.  Once he is diced and tanned and oiled, compiled with the lighting in the show................its all about the obticle illusion, he just might end up looking insane.

"obticle"

Optical.  Not even close.

'Spin-

I see yer point, but if you call yourself a bb'er, I think you should be more muscular than another athlete, or else what are you really doing + what kind of competition is bb?

If a college football player can come off the playing field, walk on stage + look better than you, then exactly what type of "bodybuilder" are you?

Remember when strongmen contest winners would sometimes enter the physique contest, beat everyone + then  laugh at bodybuilding?

Not good for bb.....

This is analogous to the old argument of "Should you applaud/give an A for effort out of shape people who get in the best shape of their life, enter a bb contest, but frankly dont look very good?".

Sorry, but I 100% agree with Mr. Incredible's comment that "We're coming up with new ways to celebrate mediocrity."

In short:

1. Compete in a sport if you're competitive.  
2. Otherwise just have fun in your chosen sport, but don't pretend you're a competitive athlete, as it makes your sport look bad.



most professional bodybuilders could start in the nfl on the line, or some at linebacker...some would even be all pro, just with their size and strength.    hell...ronnie would probably be the best d lineman of all time if he played.

so no one in the nfl should be playing?? because bodybuilders are better?



i agree with what your saying...dont compete unless you are a bodybuuilder, but, not to th e extent where a guy like mike cant compete.

now, a guy ike bald, or jeffery...thats a different story.   stick to gymnastics, queerbaits!! ahha

Candidate -

Not exactly.

Brock Lesnar - former NCAA national wrestling champ + former WWE champ tried out for the NFL but just couldnt make the cut.

Dude has/had AMAZING size/strenght/speed (bigger, stronger, faster....) but just didnt have the football skills.

I don't agree with that.  Even if Mike doesn't look "INSANE", going through the process of prepping for a show is a valuable experience from which he learn not just a lot more about bodybuilding, but about the kind of man he is.  Come show time, if he can look at himself in the mirror and honestly say that he did everything he could to be at his best, then it's all worth it. 






 Once again I agree w/MS. Doc, if everyone followed your advice, there would be no BB. You'd never feel like you were big enough or in good enough shape to get onstage. Start slow ,strip the fat away & see what you really look like & take it from there.

Man you need to shut the hell up cause your 16yr old 235lbs 10% BF ass has no idea what the hell your talking about.. Ronnie could have been the best DB ever?Huh??

There is much more to an NFL position than size and strength bud.. the game is more mental than some people realize, the knowhow of being in the right position @ a certain time, the ability to read plays/quarterback, the check off of all the opponents opposite the ball.

You boy are a gimmick and your replys dirty up threads,

And what do you know about competing?

As in any sport, you have to have the skills to play the game.  It's not all size.  What is all this discussion regarding size of a bodybuilder to the size of players in NFL.  Hell, the NFL had guys from Tony Dorset to William Perry and every size in between playing pro ball.

First off if you don't believe bb is a sport, what do you think of "football" (as that was mentioned in my post) knny, and although bodybuilding does not fall in the "category" of sports, it is viewed by sports fans, when broadcasted it is on sports channels, and the fact that physical strength, agility, stamina and sacrifice are involved in such, along with competition ... I personally would categorize it as a sport, not just an industry.

Who cares if it's on TV....I guess CSI are real detectives too?

It's never mentioned on ESPN News Coverage or any other sports news coverage.

It will make local news from times to times (just like when the circus comes to town) but have you ever realized why when it is on the news....the sports news broadcasters won't be covering the story?  They usually give the assignment to some moron that just started on the station.

You can't make a legitimate bet & no bookie in the world will make money off bodybuilding.

I can be a fan of bodybuilding....but it's not a sport.

Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, & Harry Potter have fans....but I guess thats not real either.

Bodybuilding IMO can be viewed as a lifestyle or a form of Art but not as an athletic sport or sporting event.

When your comparing Bodybuilding as a sport.....

comparing fantasy tv & movie with bodybuilding is a closer comparison.


Read the entire thread next time....I gave you valid points in my argument.

Bets can't be made on Bodybuilding & no bookie will ever do it.  It's not a real sport & hell, Ben can't get it recognized in the Olympics.

You're right knny, cuz everyone knows that Coleman, Cutler, Jackson, Martinez, Ruhl, etc don't lift actual weights, they are lifting plastic or better yet they are added via illusion like the light sabers in Star Wars. 

I read the entire thread, my point where I originally posted was regarding the NFL players in comparison to bodybuilders.

Regarding placing bets on Bodybuilding, I wouldn't know why bookies don't consider bodybuilding competition bets, seeing they do place bets on the WWF (but I guess that's considered a "real" sport).

Good luck Mike.  Remember to get a regular check up on your heart.  You're in your 40's and you've eaten like shit most of your life.  Now you're going down a very dangerous road.  Be careful.

Nobody makes legit bets on the WWF.  Where the hell you get this information from?

What's lifting real weights have anything to do with bodybuilding being considered a sport?  Do you realize how st00pid your making this sound?

Bodybuilding is not a sport & it's not even an athletic event.  Bodybuilding is a beauty pageant...nothing more...nothing less.

Good point.  Mike, you already have 15 years of training behind you, right?  And you are where you are without claiming to be natural, right?  So I hope that your great determination to take your physique to a near pro-like level in "a few years" is muted by a full understanding of the health risks that could lie ahead from doing whatever it takes in pursuit of your lofty goal.  (Nonetheless, your determination is commendable.)

The only thing "st00pid" here is you going out of you way to argue with me knny.  You remind me of a kindergardener with a crush.  Roll Eyes
