Drop Weight and Climb Like a Pro, Shocking Pic Attatched

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

This is what weight lifting without steroids looks like, Atlas wouldn't even make the footbal team today.

Thats not all that true sure ATLAS was a great physical specimen in his day without steriods and today there are tons of natural bodybuilders who look as big as those who juice.

The difference is science - Nutritional Supplements and Learning how to control your diet along with great genes will get you big without steroids.

Here is a picture of Sergio Olivia the 2nd ever Mr. Olympia he won way before steroids were widely used and most believe he did not touch the stuff until after he had already won his first championship and needed to keep up with the joneses

When I ran a 0:50.2 400m, 1:57 800m and 4:30 mile in high school I was considered overweight according to the BMI chart.

Damn, I was unhealthy back then!

Here is a quote from a Chuck Palahniuk essay about anabolic steroids. I thought it would make a good follow-up to the comment above.

======================

This is a kind of weird aside, but a friend in medical schoolmate me a deal that if I introduced her to Brad Pitt, she’d sneak me in to help her dissect some cadavers. She met Brad, and I spent a long night helping her disassemble dead bodies so first-year pre-med students could study them. Our third cadaver was a 60-year-old physician. He had the muscle mass and definition of a man in his twenties, but when we opened his chest, his heart was almost the size of his head. I held his chest open and my friend poured in Formalin until his lungs floated. My friend looked at his freaking big heart, and his equally freaky big dick, and she told me: testosterone. Self administered for years. She showed me the coiled little wires and the pacemaker buried in his chest and told me he had a history of heart attacks.

About this time, a bodybuilder magazine ran an occasional little feature in its back pages, a catch-up profile about a star bodybuilder from the 1980s. Back then, these stars posed and gave interviews swearing they were blessed with great genetics and determination, they just worked hard and ate well, they never used steroids. They swore. In the update features, these same guys were pale and doughy, battling health problems from diabetes to cancer. And they admitted they had been using steroids.

Just a little background about BMI - it wasn't actually made by doctors determining health. It was made by actuarials in the life insurance industry by simply calculating death rates for weights when controlled for height. That's really the only conclusion you can draw from these, that if you are "under" or "over" weight that you statistically have a higher chance than a "normal" of dying.

You all are right, the original calculations were done on average people, so they don't necessarily hold true for athletes. BMI was never meant to give you a target weight (and surprisingly neither does the similar, but different, Ideal Body Weight).

This thread has taught me something very interesting - Americans are dying of obesity, not just because they eat alot, but because society actually pressures them to be overweight.

You don't understand the concept of dieing from old age. The people who died from what you consider old age, had their lung muscles fail or their heart muscles fail, or something. They died from something! It is no different from getting cancer and dieing. Some cancers are natural. Our bodies were not meant to live to 90 plus. the only reason people live to your definition of old age (90yrs) IS BECAUSE OF MODERN MEDICINE. think of an elderly relative, how many pills do they take a day? it is possible for medicine to slow down aging and even stop it. Not possible currently, but in the future. I read a very good article in Scientific American about the science of slowing aging. AGING IS A CONDITION.

95%? where did you come up with this number?

A doctor cannot treat someone who doesnt go to them. A lot of conditions can be treated in found early enough. However people dont go to the doctors to get the tests. They what til the have symptoms and by that time there is nothing anyone can do.

You are way to cynical and need to rethink your opinion of the medical community

[rant] I gotta agree with Euro here. Americans are too damn heavy. I go to a college where there is a fair amount of pressure to be thin, so I see the "love your body" crap in the dining halls. I've got news for you: you really should only love 80% of your body. Seriously, the rest is just extra.

In this day and age, there is nothing wrong with males showing bone. (Females are a little different...but just a little.) Sure, you don't have a whole lot of fat stored up, but that fat isn't doing anything, anyways. You're not hibernating in the winter; you're going to store just like the summer. People say "well I'm average weight"--you have girls who are 160 pounds saying this, and they're 5'6". Something like 80% of the population in the US is overweight...myself is included here, and if you saw me you wouldn't think so. The truth is I am, though. While I probably won't have a heart attack, the extra 15 pounds that I'm carrying is just holding me back.

That's really the core of the argument: it is more efficient to be lighter. You consume less, you live longer, and stuff is just generally easier for you to do. [/rant]

>>You are way to cynical and need to rethink your opinion of the medical community<<

Boy do you need a trip to the clue store. Hopefully yours won't take 5 years and a medical circle jerk like the one I've been through.

I think I'm the picture of reasonable sportsmanship all things considered. If I was as cynical as you seem to think I am I'd have several malpractice suits going - and maybe I would have been arrested for assault on a medical professional by now. The way I look at it if doctors knew half of what everyone seems to think they know, we'd all be successfully treated for things like heart disease, cancer and stroke and then die between 100-119 years of age in our beds. But we don't. I'm just happy they can work the amazing feats of medical mojo that they currently do. I do wish the medical profession had a more open minded approach to diagnostics. I can't go there. Too much of a rant.

Never mind.

So the old Hollywood adage: "you can never be too rich, too good looking, or too thin" doesn't hold true.

You can be too thin, the other two however are less debatable

Here is a major dichotomy: When I am in Europe ( I have been to France, Germany, Switzerland, GB, The Neatherlands, Czech Republic, and Ireland) I need to search high and low to find a gym. When I do finally find one it only has dumbells up to 35 lbs and an old antiquated Stair Master. There is hardly ever another sole in the place, and in Rotterdam they were smoking inside the gym??? They do always have a pool and a sauna though.

I see some of the most antiquated work out routines in the European gyms and even on TV. The Euros are definetly not in to weight lifting and resistance training as we are in the US. My wife you has been in the gym for over 10 years (mainly light circuit training, not bulking) and carrys way more muscle than Euro women. They look at her in awe and she is far from a body builder.

Here in The States I belong to 24 Hour Fitness. I can find a gym every 10 miles throughout California and when I travel to the East Coast all of the major hotels have a gym or are partnered with a local gym so as a guest you get in free.

In The States I see people in the gym at 3:00 am or 11:00 pm and it is always busy in between.

What gives??

Amazing.
