    Chris Cormier looking shockingly small.

    Obviously he's done competing but this pic shocked me.

    A pattern in the chaos.

    "professional" bodybuilding (ie professional chemical abuse) is SUCH a joke. If Cormier is now 180 at 5'10" - which seems reasonable from that pic - then he's down 70 lbs from his contest weight, and down 100 lbs from his 'off season' weight. Guess all that 'hard work and genetics > drugs' didn't mean a damn thing...

    Also maybe, just maybe, he is not trainning or dieting. I know the importance of drugs, i would never deny it, but you are jumping to conclusions based on nothing

    That's like saying that and NFL player who goes to seed after retirement wasted his time playing football...bodybuilding and being huge fit the bill at the time for Chris Cormier and others. It got them where they wanted. Being big was just the means to an end rather than the end itself.

    its shoking to see that a lot of pros seem to deflate like a balloon once their competing days are over. its not really just the fact that theyre much smaller, but what i see as the problem is that they shatter this illusion of bodybuilders being naturally huge specimen who get that extra little bit bigger by.. well.. riding bicycles to the gym.

    instead, they give all those ignorant haters extra ammo, by making it seem that as long as the dosage, excuse me.. 'gear', is right, everyone can be 280lbs at 4% bf.

    sure, to each their own, and if they decide to stop lifting, then so be it. but i know people with bigger frames, who spend 85% of their wake time collecting online artifacts and are on a strict mountain dew/frito lay/pizza/ramen diet.

    just look at mustafa.. hard to imagine that he had these crazy sweepin legs

    Damn, his head looks like it's on the wrong body in the recent pics. Probably needed a break from the lifestyle, keeping it up for all those years probably gets old.

    If he weighs 200 pounds with maybe 9% body fat at 5'10" then by most standards he is still huge.
    "Optimum Nutrition fan and endorser."

    If Arnold Schwarzenegger is the heart of bodybuilding, Joe Weider is the soul. If Arnold Schwarzenegger is the king of bodybuilding, Joe Weider is the God.

    Been into bodybuilding since 1991, non-stop and constant.

    I looked 10 years younger for my age the day I turned 33. The pattern remains the same every year. But I want to look 80 like Sean Connery.

    I practice science, art, sport and philosophy, therefore, I'm a bodybuilder.

    Well, since his comeback fell apart a while ago, and hes had the enjoyment (and suffering) of being in super muscular shape, I'm sure he wanted a break. So he stopped the drugs (well, probably not all of them ) , training, and eating.

    It is shocking, especially if you don't follow up on the careers of bodybuilders who retire. In the past, there have been other examples, but very few of them had the kind of notoriety and success that Chris had competitively.

    Also, I wanted to add that Aaron Singerman isn't exactly "small" by any stretch of the imagination. He might have competed in Men's Physique, but he's over 6ft, 220+ lbs in the off season, and very top heavy.

    My point is, you put a retired pro, who has shrunken down, next to a bigger guy, and they'll look even smaller in comparison. If anything, this just proves that regardless of what you do (natural vs. enhanced) you have continue the lifestyle after you're done competing if you want to maintain your physique.

    He has a sort of round about point. Sure the diet, discipline and training are a huge part but when they are not working out hard riding the bicycle they look like any other average joe in the gym who does cardio and weights 3 or 4 times a week.

    Point is, imho, it really does come down to genetics and how your body responds to bicycle riding. If it responds extraordinarily, then you have a gift and thus potential to possibly become a high ranked Pro, IF and this is a big IF...you are willing to put in the sacrifice, time, money, discipline, training, diet, sleep et.

    Also, if you respond extraordinarily to the bicycle there is the competition you have of competing with others who have responded extraordinarily to the bicycle and are working their ass off to be #1.

    Simply put, imho. you could train, diet, eat, sleep all you want and be stricter in all these aspects than the top Pro but IF you don't have the genetic potential and your body does not respond well to the bicycle, you are SOL in regards to becoming a Pro.

    ie. Munzer comes to mind, didn't have the genetics to match Pro's in size so went the conditioning route to become freaky...unfortunately it killed him in the end. =/

    But at the end of the day, it is fair to say that all professional sports players are genetically gifted, for some it just comes naturally in terms of talent i.e. baseball, hockey et, just like for some bodybuilders, the size comes naturally from genetic potential when they ride the bicycle.

    Aaron Singerman from RxMuscle. He's very involved with the industry, and does lots of interviews that get posted here all the time. Also, he's the spokesperson for IronMag labs, and a close friend of PJ Braun.

    If you're natural, you can get bigger and better as you get older, if you're a world class pro bodybuilder who uses steroids, you'll only get smaller as you get older since you will at one point either stop using steroids or drastically reduce your dosage and frequency of use.
    "Optimum Nutrition fan and endorser."

    If Arnold Schwarzenegger is the heart of bodybuilding, Joe Weider is the soul. If Arnold Schwarzenegger is the king of bodybuilding, Joe Weider is the God.

    Been into bodybuilding since 1991, non-stop and constant.

    I looked 10 years younger for my age the day I turned 33. The pattern remains the same every year. But I want to look 80 like Sean Connery.

    I practice science, art, sport and philosophy, therefore, I'm a bodybuilder.
