I saw him last year on the gold coast and he said he eats 5kg of chicken breast a day not including all the other food he eats. Jebus.

can someone as big as ronnie, change their diet and training, so that when they rtire from bb, they can lose all that/most of the muscle and sorta return to normal again by doing cardio cardio cardio etc etc, put the body in a catalytic state or watever it's called???

Sure can

Here's Levrone before in his BB day's, which was not too long ago at all.

He then wanted to pursue an acting career, so reduced his size by alot in around 1 year or less i believe

I posted that pic of Bob Sapp a while ago.
Before I had actually seen him fight.

He has since been beaten a few times now by mid 90 kg guys that have an awesome knockout punch. He had his rib cracked in one fight and had to stop. I think CroCop was the first to knock him out with a huge left hook. So it comes back to technique and conditioning a lot in kickboxing, but against guys like Bob Sapp, you need the knockout power. You can see some of the fights on youtube, search for Bob Sapp. In a real fight though without gloves ? 170kg is alot of power to get around. If he kept training though and developed better coordination and timing he would of being impossible to beat, but that is an IF at this point, because he went AWOL at his last fight in the Nederlands and his Japanese contract holders didn't take to kindly to being stood up and loosing face. (they have a new giant in Korea's Hong-Man Choi now, 7 foot 2 inch, 353 pound giant, )

Back to topic though, yes he is too big, but hey someone had to do it.

I remember reading a flex wheeler interview when he went over 300lbs and then back down to 260lbs. He said that at over 300lbs, it just wasn't right, he had to sleep in a special position with pillows placed around him. Flex is probably more in tune with his body though and could tell that his heart and organs were working to hard.

I think the BBing judges are rewarding asthetics more now, rather than straight out hugeness, about time too. He usually looks in proportion too.

What happened to GT4shadow ? I miss his posts. I hope he didn't take anything the wrong way. We still love him.

it's like rims. before it was a "race" to see who could get the biggest rims.

first 15 inches appeared in the early 90s, and that was like wow! then 16's and 17's were the norm. Then people started putting 18s and that looked good.

Then 19s came into the picture. Now 20s are everywhere.

With wheels up to 28 inches for larger cars, we've seen over the past several years a buck in the trend. it's no longer just a question of getting the biggest rims out there, cos some rims will look too big its ridiculous!

now, a lot of people are picking a rim size, perhaps 18s, 20s, whatever... and even though there are bigger rims out there, it's not about monsterously big rim sizes anymore, it's gone back to "does this look good on the car?" :)

it will soon happen with dish sizes too. no doubt.

so too in bbing, eventually after people are all over the 'how big can we get' thing, the masses will turn back to 'what looks good on their frame' perspective.

it's just a stage the sport is going through. but once the freaky limits are exhausted and people get sick of seeing what another 10lbs would look like on the big guys, we will start to go back to what looks good instead of what looks big. even though there is a huge correlation between big and good, bigger isn't necessarily better - just like wheel size, dish size, heck turbo size... there comes a point when we will get back to equilibrium because expanding the direction of the trend further becomes wierder and wierder lol.

this whole discussion about how mass will make you slower is correct & incorrect from both parties. It all depends on the type of training you are doing strength/speed? i personally dont know how ronnie trains so i cant comment on his speed because i hav'nt watched any of his dvds. But if you have a look at the huuuuuuuge kickboxing fighters they are not slow, its because of the type of training they do which allows them to move and react fast. Hope this clears things out a lil

but E=mc^2 ;) the bigger you are, the slower you'll be unless your muscles increase at the square of their size.

In other words, a guy twice as massive will need to be four times as powerful to move at the same speed.

Its a loosing battle - but - notice I did NOT say that negates the speed and ajility of the big guys.... it's just they are fast compared to normal people. But, compare them with, perhaps, a guy who is small AND fast, and then you REALLY see speed. Right? :yes:

When I first saw Gary Strydom, I thought the we had reached the pinacle of muscle development and that it would be impossible to get bigger than that.





Cut and Burn, Austrian style.

Keep in mind though you don't double in mass when you double the amount of muscle you have. I'm not implying that you are saying othewise by the way. Olympic sprinters aren't exactly small for instance. Gymnasts are short but for there size they are huge and clearly highly agile. There is clearly a trade off which leads to the optimum size athetically speaking.
