Bodybuilders in the Street

How often do you see a Bodybuilder in normal life, street, store anywhere but not of course in Gyms or Fitness centers. I don’t mean athletic or well built guys either. Last time I saw one was in Phoenix airport last summer when I was visiting the USA! Here in Europe it’s rare to see anyone who looks like they are a Bodybuilder unless one goes to a gym.

I’ve only seen one, Branch Warren. He was walking into a movie theatre with his lady friend. All I remember is he was wearing a black shirt with no sleeves, sporting the largest delts and arms I’ve ever seen (in person of course).

just go to venice golds pay the 25 dollar daily fee, and u will see every single bodybuilder there working out.

Then Go to Firehouse for lunch and they will all be there eating.

We aren’t talking rocket scientists here there is nothing special.

when I was younger 10 yrs ago , I used to go and train at venice golds all the time. Ive seen every one from Flex WHeeler (in top form), worked out with Chris Cormier, talked to paul dillett, Milos sarcev, Seen Ronnie coleman. Shawn Ray, god, most are so egotistical you wouldn’t even want to shake their hands.

although watching MOnica Brant do photo shoots in a thong is much much better trust me!

The only BB I have ever been proud to know, and workout with is Albert Beckles.

Opener said OUTSIDE a gym or fitness center. Like at Mcdonalds.

I’ve only seen one bodybuilder outside the gym. Don’t know who he is, but the guy was absolutely monstrous. Bigger than any guy I’ve ever seen at Gold’s. At the Arizona Mills Mall, walking in as I was walking out. It was all I could do to not stare. 'Cause it’s rude… but the guy was worth physique admiration.

I’ve seen Troy Alves, Rusty Jeffers, David Henry, and JJ Marsh. They all live here in Az. There are some very big non pros running around here though.

Yes Golds in Venice is famous my brother went there when he visited the USA in 1972 and saw Ken Waller, Franco Colembra, Dave Draper and of course Arnold. A different generation.
Al Beccles is a real gentlman he used to be an Olympic lifter at first. He must be in his 60s now like I am.
