Uncrowned kings of bodybuilding
We all know the great thirteen that prides itself with Sandow statuette as the supreme award of professional bodybuilding. But attention should be paid to those that have never reached the glory, but they should have …
1st Kevin Levrone
The Maryland Muscle Machine’s icon of his time. Described as a “cool guy” premium proportions was the best in its variation side chest pose. Shoulders as mountains and hands which are not many could boast made him challenge for absolutely everyone. He has won numerous professional competitions, there were rumors about a possible Olympia title. He knows what it’s like to have a silver or gold medal is still somehow a step ahead. Kevin everyone knows and very specific method of preparation, and the fact that a good part of the year did spend almost all of the resting and then a few months before the competition, “put in the maximum speed”. For many today, Kevin one of those who were able to carry Olympia title and it’s hard not to see why not.
2nd Flex Wheeler
Kenneth Wheeler was perhaps the greatest potential. It is said that in some competitions had not had any real preparation, and always tearing up the stage. Nicknamed the Sultan of symmetry. All on his figure was as crossed out from the opposite side. It looked like a nice transition between the old and the new age, and although he was not on the level with a huge, never looked small. The biggest clash had 98. It was a historic night in which they remained standing only Flex and Coleman, as at the end of all, we all know it.
3rd Shawn Ray
Sugar Shawn Although small, it was dynamite in every sense. He won the competition and the fans, dealt with self-promotion. Shawn was everywhere, except at the top of Mister Olympia. Several times well shook the throne of Dorian Yates, and out of shape never appeared. Master posturing and theatrics – videos of his routines are now the most watched on YouTube when it comes to presentation on stage. Shawn Ray has left an indelible mark on bodybuilding, and that Sandow that time went to him, sport might have been different!
Of course, there are bodybuilders who were able to knock down the occasional king of bodybuilding, but when it comes to the recognition and effective career, these three are far above the rest of the pack. Flex, Levrone and Ray have set standards that are only Mister Olympia could overcome!
Dexter Jackson | Motivation | Poster
Since the 2004 in the first three months won the three competitions in a row, Dexter has achieved star status in the sport. With its 168 cm and 100 pounds, “The Blade” had no trouble Deal With many larger competitors. Its imposing symmetry and unwavering nature were his, and the other main weapon.
That’s why we made a motivational poster, to remind all of Dexter before Mr. Olympia 2015.
Champions believe in themselves, even when no one else does.
Frank Zane Advice
“If you want to get high
definition and keep it for the rest
of your life then DON’T BULK UP
which entails gorging yourself
with extra calories.
Bulking up means to pack on a lot
of body weight in a hurry. Is this
productive or are you wastig
your time? My advice based on
my own experience is don’t do it.
Quality muscle takes time to develop.
It’s better to add not
more then 5 lbs of solid muscle a
year by training and eating right
than to gain 30-40 lbs of surplus
tissue, much of which is fat and
When you train down and lose
the exess bulk you will most
likely find yourself in the same
place where you started, a year
late, a year wasted. You cannot
improve your definition this way.
Strength and Size | Tips
Often we ask what is the connection between power and size? Bodybuilders train for size and therefore you should train differently than a powerlifter who train for strength. You often hear that you do not need to lift big weight, in order to become stronger. Wrong! The strength and size go together and the only way to become larger to also become more and more powerful.
For those on steroids, there are different rules. They have increased protein synthesis and they can increase their muscle mass and definition much easier than natural bodybuilders. Therefore it is extremely important for exercisers who do not use steroids and having an average genetics to first strengthen muscles.
It is not necessary to stimulate the muscle directly to become bigger and stronger.
Here are beginning to apply a complex exercise. If you redouble your bench press in the course of a few years, then how can your arms, shoulders and back can stay the same size? They also need to grow in order to support the weight that you’re lifting.
While you are in the early stages of building muscle forget the muscular symmetry. First, empower, become larger, and then start working on body symmetry. Leave aside the isolation exercises and pumping with a smaller increase weight until you are able to squat or bench press to work with serious weight. Concentrate on the most complex exercises such as the squat, deadlift, bench press, military press, rowing, pull-ups and dips.
