People say they were 20 inches!

 Don't know if they were or not, but they were unbelievable

Some of the best guns and crazy ass forearm development ever.

I think a lot of younger guys think these guys are twinky,because they got use to huge guts and monstrous quads.

I do see some of the younger guys here lately that do appreciate the old school look though, as I think they are finally getting sick of looking at guys like Branch winning top contests.

No shit,the guy was always shredded.

Probably a political issue or something.......he didn`t really hang around too long compared to a lot of guys.
