i think his offseason weight went up to about 255. the time he grew into contest shape was in 75 coz he had to loose weight for a movie & had only 3 months left. he did a few appearances after he retired at notablly lower weight which may make it look like he shrunk in the offseason but i dont think he commonly did.
