    Shit, I want to build calves like his!!
    (Also I want to have a long and intense sexual relationship w/ him)
    …both things are quite implausible.

    Off to the gym, going to destroy my calves now!

    There is nothing normally human about the ugly steroid monster on the stage!

    You do realize this is him at his leanest. His off season look is likely much chubbier.

    Nope. I've heard when you do this level of steroids, your body doesn't gain fat too easily, even when you're not working out.

    Competition bodybuilders do special maneuvers to reach an extremely low body fat for competition that go beyond steroids, like using clenbuterol and deliberate dehydration. This guy already has a wide waistline in competition, it's all downhill from there.

    I love bodybuilder and love the big, freaky look. It's because my body has the genetics to outperform other guys.

    BUT I can't stand competition because it is too hard on my body trying to hit 4 percent bodyfat (bf) for contest condition. I am happy with myself in the 8-15 percent bf range.

    Most guys don't realize bodybuilders don't stay in contest condition year-round. Well, at least the sensible bodybuilders.

    I agree with you. Kind of frankenstein-like.

    When I was a US Army Major in my mid-thirties my duties included teaching several periods of "Military Physical Conditioning" every week in college. And one of the things I had my students do was a caliper "pinch test" for body fat. I was shocked by the results. I came in around 10% myself.

    There was some US Federal agency on campus, and they were doing a study about different ways to measure body fat. They wanted me as a subject because I was in the correct age range, and obviously active and in good shape. So I agreed. They wanted to compare different ways of measuring body fat.

    The caliipered me, then I was submerged in a water tank. Finally they put me into some kind of whole-boday radiation detector, after injection with trace material. The results were all pretty consistent, about 9.5 %, which served to validate this new radiation method.

    But I was advised that below 10% I ran some health risks, and was told to bulk up. After reassingment from ROTC that began to happen naturally, and it's been happening ever since. icon_sad.gif

    Back then younger men were advised to ideally stay around 11-15%. I don't know what the target is now. I'm certainly way over it today, but coming down again.

    What really shocked me was some of my young male students who looked really buff, with 6-packs and all, registered fat content in the mid-20s, as females do. And when I administered controlled strength tests on them, as I did at the beginning of each semester, they were way weaker than I was!

    Guys bigger than me, 12 or more years younger than me, looking like an Adonis. But they were a fascade, all plaster. High school and college eating habits had made their muscles all marbled with fat. They weren't fat like having a beer belly spare tire, but the fat was there just the same, invisible, robbing their strength. It could be measured.

    And we'd do exercises together and I could smoke these guys. I was in my mid-30s, some of them late teens and early 20s. They looked better than me, but couldn't perform worth jack-s*it.

    You don't have to be an extreme body builder, which can look freakish. But you gotta work your muscles to remove hidden fat, and build muscle. That's what I stressed in my classes.

    Whatever floats your boat, but I don't find anything remotely attractive about this sort of overdeveloped grotesque physique.

    I'd say this guy is about the maximum (upper body) size a bodybuilder can go to, while still remaining attractive.

    May be it is just me but I find guys who are as big as this one quite buffoonish. It is like they have some warped idea of masculinity and over compensating for it.

    steve93 saidDallas McCarver is very big but I like this man and very big bodybuilders. For me, More muscles is always good !
    To a certain limited extent having more muscles is good. There is definitely such a thing as overdoing it or being way too muscular!

    I want to be bigger than that guy one day. I am a type of person that prefers a lot of muscle and visible veins - the more, the better. There's no such thing as too much if everything is earned naturally.

    Back to the calve topic:

    I don't think his calves are too big. In contrary, most guys at the gym, including me, under-train their calves. So, there are not a lot of "athletic" people who accomplish the size and definition of that calves.

    Scruffie doesn't have a a clue as to what he's talking about. It's not the steroids that make them lean. In actuality, many types of popular steroids can make a lot of men kinda bloated and sometimes a bit fat. It's the exogenously injected growth hormone that allows a lot of men to remain pretty lean throughout the year. And as you said, clenbuterol speeds up metabolism to burn more fat. Prescription strength diuretics are used to release all the subcutaneous water and is what helps a competition bodybuilder look razor sharp on stage. A couple of well known bodybuilders have actually went into cardiac arrest and died from using too many diuretics, resulting from a severe electrolyte imbalance and extreme dehydration.

    I agree big muscle is hot. These guys work hard and are very dedicated to what they do and I totally respect that, steroids may help but they are certainly not a magic pill....you still have to work like crazy and want it bad enough.
