Arnold in Predator

I was just looking at some pictures of Arnold in predator. I had never really noticed it before, but he was getting progressively "smaller" in each movie (I mean, look at him in Conan, then in Commando, then Predator). Maybe it's because I'm older now, but I was thinking he looked really good in...

Aesthetic of Muscle Gut

Anyone here has obsession on muscle gut. I personally really like the gut look, and build up my body to have one. I think it is part of huge bodybuilder, very manly! It makes the body very huge and thick.

Smile was looking for some Mr. Olympia motivation on youtube, and I see Kevin Levrone 2016

Couldn't believe I saw this guy still going at age 52. Some motivation for sure, but totally surprised me. I remember him from over 20 years ago competing on the big stage. Age is just a number. 50 is the new 30 :)
