    Very, very good. Yet not good enough for the upper echelon - that just shows how genetically gifted in all regards are the TOP Pros.

    I remember one pic from when he did a national show that palumbo and a few future pro's were in and Rich looked really good in that line up (he took 8th I think).

    yep , but he's a very smart guy .and seems to have done very well for himself despite never doing very well in competitive bodybuilding.

    That's another story. He did. Same thing with BoB Chick - never placed too well and finally got his pro card and then still is involved in bb - just in a different capacity.

    Rich was very blocky. Blocky guys look great in crab most-musculars and side shots, it all falls apart in the front double biceps. That being said, Rich was wise to quit competing and focus on just being a celebrity in the industry and making all those videos.

    Great genetics IMO, a little blocky around the waist but carrying a lot of mass. Looks a bit ridiculous now but I guess he needed a way to market himself after competing.

    Lol.

    Smart might not be the more proper definition, but we can say that was not a very stubborn guy and realized that it was better for his pocket.

    His arms look like sticks, really was a part of his body with poor genetics and are now full of oil. It seems that as injected oil into her arms her physique went to shit.
