    Why are strongmen usually fat?

    I can't figure this out. Bodybuilders manage to have muscle on them and be lean at the same time,

    But olympic weightlifters are usually kind of fat.
    Could you be the world's strongest person and still be lean at the same time?

    yeah but i could imagine at least a few strongmen wanting to be able to see their own muscles.

    like if you are gonna be huge like that you might as well be lean.

    Because an calorie excess is needed for the body to be at its strongest, when bodybuilders diet, they are at there weakest as carbs are drained from there system, that is why strongmen are alsays carry fat on them, because they eat more and do far less cardio

    there we go! at least one scientific answer so far.

    could it also be because the additional weight on their body gives them extra leverage with lifts?

    of course theyre are. If you use performance enhancing drugs your gonna be a lot stronger than anyone whose natural. Bodybuilders DO NOT look good when theyre bulking and lifting their heaviest (compared to when theyre at competition weight...of course theyre bodies will rape the majority)

    Also a good example is football. Although it seems like its been gradually changing. IM talkin bout the offensive linemen of course and Defensive Tackles.

    lol not in the olympics. just ask Victor Conte. sooner or later people get pissed off and want credit and money. the olympics will take away ur medal 12 years from now if they still got what they need to do testings.

    however if a guy looking like Coleman shows up you better bet your ass theyll catch him.
