BTW, Gustavo basically "sucked" (as a competitive pro of course) before his breakout 2004 season. So it's very easy to find picks of him prior to 2004 and use them to show how "small" he is.

ok bro, sorry for calling you out like that, no hard feelings

I don't know, MAYBE card loading could do it, but I dunno, it looks weird to me

his delts and traps appear way bigger in the mag cover and his arm abit bigger still, I dunno if card loading and shit would really make THAT sort of difference  Shocked

ok bro, sorry for calling you out like that, no hard feelings

but hell I reckon it's be changed abit

here's your comparison then....Gustavo's arms and delts and traps are clearly bigger in the mag cover...you can   Shocked

and don't give me that card loading shit, yeah I know it's makes a difference, but you can see the difference

It's true that sometimes mags will airbrush covers, but they don't make huge modifications, if any. Understand that studio lighting and stage lighting make a huge difference. As far as carb loading and water balance, yes it makes a HUGE difference. An athlete I trained gained 35lbs within 10 days after his contest and while he didn't look as ripped, he did look much larger.

Studio shots use lighting to put the athlete's to their best advantage and nothing is more unflattering that stage lights. It can truely wash out your definition and reduce the appearance of size.

But I reckon the point of the arguement was that Gustavo has small arms. From the comparison picks I think that it's fair to say that this is not the case. They are not his strongest point, but in no way are they small.

Gotta go to work, I'll keep in touch.

yeah but if he's not careful he'll end up like King Kamali, people will be hating on him forever if his attitude doesn't change

the moment he loses or places bad, people will rip on him forever...King Kamali is exactly the same  Undecided
no not like kamali. kamali talked shit just to talk it and cant back it up. gus is number 3 or 4 in the world, he can talk if he wants. he did beat ron in the challenge round. remember, it is competition.  they dont train for second place, cuz like shawn said, second place is first place loser, aint it shawn?

he's got a cocky attitude thats for sure, if he wasn't cocky, if he a humble champion he would be twice as popular, but cockiness and unreal measurements won't make a guy liked  Undecided

Haters rest in peace......

I can't understand why the mags keep calling a Venezuelian guy who has lived in Las Vegas for the past year the "Freakin' Rican."   Roll Eyes   If Gunter lived in Puerto Rico for a couple years would he become the "Freakin' Rican" too?

I'm not saying he doesn't. I'm only saying that Gustavo doesn't have small arms.

although Gustavo is right behind him.. Jay and Ronnie were far away from the rest of the pack. So still, Jay on Gustavo = OWNED

I'm not ripping on him bro, I think he's a good bodybuilder, but as everyone would agree, I think he's cocky, arrogant and no very big for a pro, and I think he exaggerates his measurements. He makes wild claims like 22 inch arms and 250 lbs he says, but I call bullshit, he's 5ft7 with 19 inchers, 230lbs and the pics prove it  Shocked

Here we go again, if he has 19" arms, then Jay has no more than 20" and Cormier and Dex have what? 18.5" Huh Gustavo probably has 20.5-21" and has weighted-in at shows at 235-245 and as most guys competing know, you are always a tad light at the weigh-in due to water loss.

At the 2005 "O" Ronnie was 275lbs, Jay 264lbs, Gustavo 245 and Gunter 295lbs.

Another one

Again, not posting this to say that Gustavo is better than anybody, it's just to show that his arms aren't small.
