Putting there body through so much. Some doing steroids, starving them selves, getting down to 8 to 5% body fat, etc?

Healthier than sitting round and becoming 27 stone. I'd say those pre workout shops are the worst

professional bodybuilders, who are natties (naturals who don't use steroids), are some of the healthiest people because they watch their nutrition very carefully.

lol there is no restriction to the use of steroids in bodybuilding....you just can't use them before competitions...

I'd rather be 400 pounds than be an inflexible muscle ball like a bodybuilder.

i know lots of bodybuilers\gym buffs....most(not all) take lots of steroids,use meth or coke,take ghp to power nap,etc...they eat alright but years down the road a few had liver & kidney problems,a couple were mentally unstable & became violent,some did time,etc...not all end up like this.once a person starts the roid cycles they dont stop.the muscle is artificial & the worst case ive seen was a guy i knew was 6'2 260 of solid roids.he was so huge i think he could barely wipe his own ass! i saw him 3 years later & he was 140-150 pounds waiting for a kidney transplant...he aged 20 years...i couldnt believe it...he told me it was the roids.im naturally broad shouldered & barrel chested.ive had many guys over the years tell me i could get massive if i took a few cycles...forget that i did enough drugs at the time so i always said no.im done with all drugs other then maybe cialis or viagra...lol!

My dad was a bodybuilder and never took steroids. They usually watch what they eat just like boxer and work out a lot. He used to work in a gym so that helps too.

Bodybuilders dont starve themselves,they cant starve and develop such defined muscles, they eat plentiful and healthy, some take steriods, but those guys usualy look weird.

A guy I know built himself up naturally and got rather big. Hes 5'10 around 230lb last time I seen him....but he was just massive not much definition, no fat just big, more strongman looking kinda guy.

Now he's on roids because he wants too look more cut...anyway he did get more cut, looks massive, not that he wasnt already.....


For some people body building is their life I guess......they become obsessed with their bodies, it's like a drug addiction or any other mental disorder. It just becomes something they are hooked on and what makes them happy, so they go through extremes.

As for healthy lifestyles...One can eat well, but then drink a micky a day and snort lines............and yes you can do all that and still be a body builder.

No, on the contrary, they live a very healthy lifestyle. Even recreational bodybuilders who do an occasional responsible cycle are much more healthy than people who consume a lot fast food and/ or alcohol/ other drugs.
The professionals you see at the Mr Olympia on the other hand, are taking it too far, they are walking chemical factories. I have seen some annual steroid cycles those guys use and it's crazy. Also the reckless amateur steroid abusers are putting massive strain on their (internal) organs and bodily functions.

Lol. Strong ignorance. There are some competitions for naturals only. Look up layne norton.



And lol at the person said he'd rather be a fat 400 pounder than a bodybuilder. Good luck with that

Because we all know how healthy rick hatton is haha

I'd be willing to bet that a 400 pound man generally has a shorter life expectancy than an average bodybuilder. And I'd say an average 400 pound man is probably at about the same level of athleticism as an average bodybuilder.

I'll bet that guy couldn't jog a lap around a 400 meter track without stopping, or touch his toes.

And people who aren't natural don't?

Bodybuilders are probably the best athletes in the world when it comes to knowing how to diet properly.

Do they live an unhealthy life? Possibly. Some more than others.

Considering how much they get paid, the reward doesn't really match the risk.

But there are tons of other sportsmen who get paid much more and live even more unhealthy

LOL, those don't exist. practically 100% of the bodybuilders in BB competition are steroid users. Arnold and Stallone admit to using steroid during their competition and BB's are a lot bigger now so obviously they are juicing too. There really is no such thing as "natties". Natties wouldn't even qualify for the top 50.

That is Markus Ruhl and he is one of the biggest mofo's to ever walk this planet. Bodybuilders are pretty flexible for their size, I'm pretty sure Markus would be able to touch his toes. But I agree he will start gassing after running 20 meters. He gasses a lot anyway.

Most bodybuilders don't drink alcohol and eat very healthy, taking steroids now and then is far more healthy then drinking alcohol and eating fast food .

And no bodybuilders starves himself, i don't know where TS heard that

you take steroids to train harder, the real bodybuilders I know who take steroids train harder then anyone. People who use steroids to be muscular fast loose all their muslce within a year cause they don't know what the **** they are doing

What kind of social/sex life do you think you would have being a 400lbs tub of lard?

Chicks love muscles.

Plus not all bodybuilders are as big as Rhul or Coleman or Cutler
