    True, it's not a foolproof comparison.

    Totally agree brother. Besides, nothing in science seems "fair" or "unfair", take natural selection for ex. It's not that the gorilla born without genitalia didn't TRY to pass on it's genetics, it's just that it didnt occur. There may have been a gorilla that had success with 1/10 the effort because it was suited for the task.

It was a 14 day diet because 15 days before the show I had never considered doing a show myself. The owner of the gym talked me into it that night, gave me a diet and helped me with posing every day leading into the show.
    BEEEEEEEFFFF!!!!

    JESUS CHRIST! ARE YOU STILL BRINGING THE MASS LIKE THAT NOWADAYS??

    Genetics are overrated. Too often they are an excuse for failure. A good friend of mine I used to go to the gym with was always complaining about how bad his genetics were. According to him, they were the only reason of him not having a great body. You should have seen this guy's workouts. They were damn ridiculous; first of all, NEVER working to failure (god forbid!), never training more than three times per week (usually it was one or two times per week), never training longer than 45 minutes (because, according to him, "your levels of testosterone go down after 45 minutes of training" - with his kind of "intensity", I seriously doubt they ever went up or down as a result of his workouts) and then, just when you thought you've seen it all, you would see him doing 50 lbs deadlifts or 40 lbs squats (I'm not exaggerating) and they weren't the end of a drop set. How did he ever find out he had bad genetics??? He never gave his body a decent workout! I bet there's a lot of guys out there complaining about their genetics that have quite a bit in common with my friend.

    The guy looks great, but you don't have to exaggerate to make him any more special.
    At the beginning, you stated that he at clean like the rest of us, then you said all he its is "nachos and burritos and shit".
    You then said he maintains his condition year round, than said he loses a lot of muscle mass when he is hiking and climbing. You are telling too many stories to "prove" to us how good he is. You don't need to man, I think we all appreciate hard work.

    LOL


    dudes been competing for a long time. He dieted abit. He lied to you. What he has is muscle maturity and even at higher bodyfat he would still look like he is in better condition because he has more muscle on his body. 6% bodyfat on him will look like 4 percent on someone with less muscle.

    thats the most idiotic post i've ever seen from you

    someone who can maintain that level of physique year round without a strict diet does not have AVERAGE genetics..

    and if i had a newer pic, dont you think i'd post that?

    he's ALWAYS shredded.. he is a mountain climber/hiker, so he loses tons and tons of weight off season when he's hiking (muscle mass), then just builds it right back for shows somehow
