Legless Bodybuilder


[quote]Tyler Carron, 21, lost his legs in a highly publicized automobile accident in January 2007. But by last month, he was named to USA Hockey’s national sled hockey team, as was Nikko Landeros, his friend who also lost his legs in the same wreck.

And Saturday in Loveland, Carron took part in the Warrior Classic bodybuilding competition (after three months of intense training and three coats of intense body-spray tanning).[/quote]

Wow.

Steel wheels.

Wow indeed!

His calves and quads need some work.

Only a matter of time before this was said, haha.

I’d hit it.

hahahahha ^^^ my god.

You guys are hilarious. That guy is awesome.

Tyler Carron: I would feel honored just to train beside you.

This guy is just too awesome. I always think that losing a limb would be the worst thing to happen to me. Just because you can never be whole again or do anything without being impaired by that. This guy would be my idol if I lost a limb. FUCK! He lost 2 and looks better than me.

I wouldn’t say that necessarily…

if I had prosthetic legs and was a BBer I would get some super jacked looking fake legs so that I’d be more impressive looking

There is a dude at my gym who is missing an arm and he trains harder than half of the people with both arms.

Where’s that wheelchair BBer? He does chins while strapped to the chair

This thread needed more Nick Scott:


A chick at my gym has some problem with her legs, she can walk but uses two wrist cane thingys. She can’t really train her legs, but man, her back and arms are amazing. She trains harder than any of the other folks around there, too.
