Wow! You were ripped! Do you miss bodybuilding?

Hey I know BB is bad for us but I still think it looks really cool.
I even like that "collection of parts" Pavel doesn't like.

You were very striated there dude, lots and lots of dedication, work, and sacrifice in that picture I would imagine.

brett,
occasionally I do miss it. its the mascochist in me I guess :))

royce, yeah it does look good but it is so non functional. I think of it as my 'immature' phase,lol.and yes TONS of works, pain and sacrifice, of that there is no doubt.

Yikes. You look great in that photo!(even if you couldn't move well at the time)

franz au contraire. bodybuilding didnt mess me up and when that photo was taken I could still run,sprint, ride my bike etc. it's powerlifting that really screwed me up.
