I watched the superheros cartoons as akid.  I didnt know you could actually look like that until i saw a bb in a mall.....it was amazing.   I went home and asked my mom what do i do to get like that??     She bought me a plastic/cement weight set and off i went at 13yrs old.

I competed at 16 and took all the trophys in my first comp.   I was hooked, but i wish someone had directed my energys into football or something......

Richard allegedly got caught with some winstrol tabs when flying back or out of Orange County some years back....

Oh really Alex? This is news to me!!! First time I've ever heard about it. And if that were true, then how come I have a badge and a gun and drive a 'black & white' everyday??? Cook that one in your pipe!

Man, it's been a LONG time since I have visited/read Getbig! But if I can remember correctly, it doesn't seem to have changed much.

Anyway, to clear the air.....YES, I will NO longer be participating in competitive bodybuilding. And since Getbig seems to be the 'eye' of the storm when it comes to rumors, let me just tell you...I have NO health issues what-so-ever, NO injuries of any kind or whatever else can be generated from such an exit. I love and always will love bodybuilding. I will always train and eat right as long as I'm physically able to. But my life and priorities have taken shape for a different future.

Bodybuilding has given me a lot of opportunities that otherwise I would not have had. I started competing when I was 18 and it has instilled discipline, drive and the will to win. And because of that, I was awarded "pro status" in 2003. I could have walked away then and been satisfied with my accomplishments. I don't know how many times I have to reiterate this, but just merely competing in the 2004 solidified my career and exceeded my goals. Would I ever had been crowned "Mr. Olympia"??? No way! I knew that coming in. And I certainly wasn't going to kill myself trying to chase something that simply wasn't going to happen. I'm ok with that. VERY ok.

Since then, I have completed my MBA, I have a BEAUTIFUL girlfriend, an awesome dog, a fun and exciting job and a nice roof over my head. Most importantly, I am in excellent health! It's all good and only going to get better. 

But thanks for all the support and compliments! The true fans is what I'll miss the most!

What's the saying around here? "Hope this helps"!!

P.S. I don't read the boards and I don't plan on doing so or responding after this. So just consider it my final farewell.


Sincerely,

Richard Jones

Good for you Richard.

Now that you have finished bodybuilding you should apply for a position on the next series of the Apprentice. They would love it to have a former Mr USA on board competing.

Sorry man, didn't want to start any shit or any bad rumors. I'm very glad to hear that it was all bullshit, ironically, I'm pretty sure I've read those idiocies on here.

I've admired you from your NPC days until your vanishing act and it's was kind of a blow to see you go to be honest.

I don't think you're retiring for good however; you shifted your priorites for a while to accomplish something beyond but it'll bite again.

Once you settle down, stabilize into that "new stage of life" you're in, it'll come up  ;D

You still in Orange?

Most on getbig would love to trade places with you on all accounts. Educated, champion bber who had REALISTIC GOALS.  A true class act. Dude had one of the top physiques from 2003 and on.  No hating on this guy, congrats and you deserve everything positive in life...

Fellow pros you need to take notes on this post, get an education instead of selling you assests for G4P.
