He’s still on. He was voted off last week but the judges decided to save them (didn’t even know there was a “save” feature on AI).
Maybe he’ll win and in turn get movie roles that T-Nation always complains go to guys who are too small.[/quote]
Unfortunately, I’ve read too many comments on YouTube, CNN, and AI’s website about how Big Mike is “too fat” (“he’s just like Ruben Studdard”) and shouldn’t even be a personal trainer because of how “fat” he is.
It’s all about looking like Edward and Jacob from Twilight nowadays…[/quote]
Youtube is the top source for dumbass-ness.
He’s muscular. He is also carrying a good deal of body fat. However, most people won’t ever get as big as he is without ever being a little “smoother” than they would like.
Yes, he could lean up IF HE WANTS TO, but anyone acting like he’s just fat is a retard.
I would listen to what he has to say as far as building muscle mass over most of the guys I used to see who could barely break 150lbs yet considered themselves “trainers”.[/quote]
I would listen to the guy who’s somewhere in the middle, the one who’s muscular and fairly lean, not at the direct ends of the spectrum.[/quote]
Dude, please. I mean in the context of even entertaining what they have to say. I did not mean that in terms of who I would go to for personal training.
I can look at “Mike” and come to the conclusion that he has been under some seriously heavy weight to look like that. the same can not be said about most of these personal trainers…so with that in mind, yes, I and I assume most serious lifters would feel they had more in common with someone like him than some skinny dude who looks like some jackoff from Twilight.
I can discuss weight lifting with someone on his level and feel he knows what I am talking about. Most of the people on this site don’t even fall in that category.
