Just felt like posting some of the thinnest/best looking mid sections of the popular bodybuilders. So here it goes :
Discussing the bodybuilding and powerlifting scene as well as recent news and events including the names of Phil Heath, Jay Cutler, Kai Greene in the bodybuilding world and Ryan Kennelly, Scott Mendelson and Donnie Thompson in the powerlifting world. Information on the new techniques and products the athletes use to compete which evolve every year. Who's more ripped and jacked? Who's bigger? Who bench presses the most? Who will win the Olympia next year and so on.
As we speak, the world record for the heaviest / biggest / best deadlift of all time is currently held by Benedikt Magnusson for a total of 1015 pounds. Also nicknamed ”Benni”, the strongman and powerlifter from Iceland broke the record on April 2, 2011 at the Ronnie Coleman classic. Seeing how much the bar bends you can rest assured this is not fake. For those of you who are too lazy to read a paragraph here is what you’re looking for :
Read also : How much does Scott Mendelson bench press?
If you’re looking for Scott Mendelson’s personal bench press records, you’ve probably already googled that search and found the results to be very confusing. You’ll find different results from different federations, events and so on, as well as off record claims, etc. What is true and what is not? We’ve done the long research for you and come up with the real, accurate results of his benchpress exploits. Here’s what we’re going to cover in this article :
As you probably know the 2013 edition of the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition is coming next September and we’re all excited too see what everybody’s gonna look like on stage. If you haven’t seen what your favorite bodybuilder looks like for a while, we have recent pictures just for you.
*** Update : Just posted part 2 of what bodybuilders look like a couple months before the olympia. More up to date pictures and Branch Warren looking better ;-P
Spoon-fed answer : NO. about 90% sure that is correct. (lol)
Why only 90% sure? I say that because I haven’t found any serious scientific studies on this matter, but if you have please feel free to post in the comments. What I have as proof of my answer is personal experience, third party feedback and just plain logic.
The reason why we hear this question frequently is because people want to get big without losing muscle definition. They’re afraid of looking too ”bulky”, like Scott Mendelson here on this picture. No offense there Scott, I’m sure you don’t care about definition anyway. Read does creatine make you stronger?
On a side note, creatine won’t transform you into a Jay Cutler overnight and you shouldn’t be afraid of looking too bulky. [Read more…]
Your mind gets pretty creative sometimes and you delude yourself into thinking you can eat anything you want just for the sake of ”bulking”. Great job. Before you know it you’re getting chunky and all that extra fat isn’t worth the small gains in strenght or size. Unless of course you are Scott Mendelson, bench a thousand pounds and you can’t afford to lose a pound of weight because your bench shirt won’t fit :P. I guess in that case that would be okay.
Of course you’ll be motivated by the quick gains you will get on the SCALE, but remember that a large percentage of those gains will be adipose tissue and little muscle. On top of that when comes the time to get shredded and cut you will have to sacrifice some of this muscular mass and be right back at square zero. [Read more…]
