As someone who speaks about myself on here all day and daily, I enjoy the posts of ESFitness.  Grin

That said, any stories of myself are accurate, and can generally be verified.  On that note - I first saw Melvin Anthony in person at the 2007 Arnold Classic.  He was virtually the first bodybuilder I ever saw in person and I thought "He looks smaller than I thought."  Little did I know that within 20 weeks of being the 5th best bodybuilder on the planet, he was smaller and softer than ever.  I couldn't believe what I was seeing, but only once I saw the photos posted did I realize he had gone from 5'8 and 230 in contest condition to 5'8 and 230 at 25% body fat, since the 2006 Mr. Olympia.  You would think one would have to work hard to make such a decline, but presumably he just went off-cycle and stopped training.

Then later in the year, he placed 6th at the Mr. Olympia and he looked night and day different than he did at the Arnold.  When I asked him "What's your prediction?  6th?"  He said "4th."  I was like wow...confident guy.  Shocked

Met Melvin Anthony years back when he did a photoshoot at Victor Martinez's gym. Steve Blechman came by to keep an eye on his investment, as it was the time Melvin was with MD.

Melvin was very sweet. Complimented me on my shoes prior to changing into my workout gear. He even had clear nail polish on, which led me to believe he was a man that kept up an impeccable appearance at all times.

"1"

Reads like a porno intro  Grin

Melvin could have been 4th or 3rd that year if he had a better work ethic and more quad sweep.

Do you actually believe that Melvin Anthony was telling ESFITNESS: "baby you gotta get onstage! You gotta get on stage baby!"

Did you see the ESFITNESS youtube crap? There is No way in hell that Melvin Anthony would ever urgently insist bodybuilding competition to that goofball.

Brah, I don't sweat it or give it much thought. I take it with a grain of salt and don't mull over it. This is GetBig. What I don't get is this obsession with Joon and everyone is a Joon gimmick. I never really considered Joon a strong presence on this board but he really seems to have gotten into a lot of heads over here. I really doubt he even reads this board let alone is on it as Josh said. And I love ESF youtube vids. A little verbose for me to get all the way through it but they crack up and I don't why anybody would think it's anybody else but him yet still think he's Joon.

Anyway, no sweat off my scrotum so I shrugged it off.

joon has at least 3 active accounts here, sure you don't sweat it, but don't for one minute think hes gone.
If you think esfitness vids are entertaining then you really should get out more, I skimmed one and have never even looked at another, not even the one he dedicated to me.

This forum is what its always been, no more than 20 posters most with 4 or 5 accounts.

To be honest Im getting a bit bored with it, may just post an "Im leaving thread"

I really don't think about it one way or another if he's on this board. I believe ESF has addressed you directly on one of his vids. And I'm not sure what you mean that I should get out more. I wish I could spend more time on this board as there are a few threads that I really want to be more involved with, say, ranger's gay thread and why a lot of people are against same sex marriage and the gay agenda. I mean, I've been on this userid six years longer than you have yet you have over 10,000 more posts than I do. So if I am spending too much time here......
