Bodybuilding Forum Freaks The Heck Out Over Random Dude's Love Life

"Very few people can claim to have influenced as many lives as Joe did through his magazines, his supplements, his training equipment and his big-hearted personality." Born in a tough neighborhood of Montreal in 1920, Weider began lifting weights as a teenager to stand up to bullies and older boys before competing in his first bodybuilding contest at the age of 17, according to a biography provided by Parker. He started his first magazine, Your Physique, in the early 1940s and with his younger brother Ben rented Montreal's Monument National Theater to host the first Mr Canada contest during that same decade. The two brothers also founded the International Federation of Bodybuilders and in 1965 Weider created the Mr Olympia competition, the sport's premiere bodybuilding contest. Weider met Schwarzenegger at a bodybuilding contest in Europe and convinced him to move from his native Austria to the United States to seek wider recognition. "He saw a lot in Arnold," Parker said.

'Bodybuilding Revealed System' Offers Bodybuilding Exercises, Diet Plans and More

To be clear: I think that's all hogwash; I'm just repeating what some people believe when it comes to love. It's relevant when looking at this bodybuilding forum that cannot fathom how it's possible for a guy to have the sort of love life that his Facebook page suggests he has. Most of these judgements are based completely on the way the guy looks versus how attractive the girls he is involved with are, running with the assumption that a guy that looks this nerdy should never be able to get a girl. Here's the first and second post (both by the same person, OptimusPrim3 ) in the thread titled "MISC I am baffled, wot is this"and to be clear, these are quoting Facebook posts the guy has made public: There I was just minding my business looking at babes on FB that I have mutual friends with and this pic comes up S

Or rather, the sport they've dedicated their entire lives to. Despite the hardcore, no-excuses nature of bodybuilding this documentary seems to have a softer side, touching upon the drugs, mental challenges and emotional struggles they experience. Mickey Rourke narrates the doc (but not the trailer) and Arnold Schwarzenegger appears briefly as Mr. Olympia. See below.

Strength, physique wins prize at bodybuilding competition

Bodybuilding.com general counsel Bill Carter said Monday the online retailer pulled Craze out of its supplement store late Friday while it seeks further testing of the product. The popular website also has removed Craze from its list of nominees for 2013 Pre-Workout Supplement of the Year. "The review main message is there are too many questions, and my view on this is the responsible thing is to investigate it and hold off on sales until we get a definitive answer," Carter said. Tests by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency , a government-affiliated forensic lab in Sweden , as well as by a lab hired by an industry competitor have detected amphetamine-like compounds in samples of Craze. Driven Sports, the company that sells Craze, has adamantly denied that its product contains amphetamines and has posted on its website test results from an outside lab that it says offer definitive proof the product is clean.

Female muscle: Figure competition - an alternative to bodybuilding?

As far as training and diet as a figure competitor, it will be much the same as the training and diet of a bodybuilder. Both groups lift weights although; the figure competitors' goal is to not take on the mass of a bodybuilder. Their diet consists of clean eating, six to eight meals per day depending on their training. Cardio may be a little more utilized by a figure competitor to keep her lean and toned as well as muscular and more dialed down to the expectations of this segment of competitions. Figure competitions will consist of three rounds: Symmetry, Mandatory and Free Posing. S Y M M E T R Y: This is where the competitors execute a series of quarter turns, side, back and front for judges to view from all angles. M A N D A T O R Y: This is the round where the judges call out the pose they want the competitors to execute; front double biceps, side chest, side triceps, back double biceps, lat spread, and abdominal/thigh.
