The guy’s physique under the armor and gear was enough for me. The dude looked bad-ass, and watching him do seemingly effortless reps with 495lb (I think it was at least 5 plates) on the trap-bar deadlift would be enough to convince the general public that he’s strong.
Seriously… how many people here can do that trap-bar deadlift Cooper did anyways? And some of you are saying he looks fat?
After months with a personal trainer and a buttload of expensive supplements that most on here couldn’t begin to afford in those amounts, he looks fat
Lots of fat strong guys out there - if that lift even qualifies
What’s misguided about this conversation is that it takes “fat” to mean “not lean.” The guy went in with average fat levels and emerged with more muscle and, again, average fat levels.
He’s not ripped and jacked. But that doesn’t mean he’s a fatass either. IMO, a lot of this comes down to the fact that most people on these boards (including myself) tend to think of our bodies in terms of “needs to lose X” or “needs to gain X” instead of “average.”
There’s a spectrum, fellas. It’s not always “fat” or “jacked.”[/quote]
Lol he was fat. When your arms have no definition at all you are now storing fat in the last place a male stores it. That’s fat. Not average not ok not jacked
