Paco Bautista

Holy shnikeys. Saw this on Shelby’s log over at EFS.

Wow, he’s looking a lot bigger. Like holy shit he’s looking a lot bigger. Still has a very weak upper chest, though.

Holy shit, he is looking fuckin big. His legs are summert else!

holy shit that was insane! He is huge and shredded


Reminds me of a mix between Yates and Markus Ruehl.

The tan really brings out just how grainy and… dense he is.

He is fucking peeled in the youtube.

paco bautista is really big. another huge spanish bodybuilder is alfonso del rio. is freaking awesome

Unfortunately this is what jumps out at me when I look at him. Everything else is so stacked that it simply looks like something is missing in his upper chest region. Weird.

Jesus, those hamstrings are drooping; to the point where his quads need work. His arms are a huge strong point. Anyone else notice how out of breath he was the whole time? Like I know posing is draining, but really?

Theres a decent chance he just finished training before practicing his posing.

Not to mention that flexing 250+lbs of muscle and 23" arms is NOTHING like most of us will ever experience. Posing like that is draining in and of itself especially when crunching muscles that damned big.

It may just appear worse than it is simply because everything else is just so in-your-face. I think everyone has one or two ‘easy’ and one or two ‘difficult’ bodyparts. Not to say that as a cop out, but you’d think that otherwise a guy with Paco’s years of experience would have realized that he needs a more pronounced upper chest region.

Totally agree with you Stu. Im also gonna have to throw in the “In your Eyes” type proportions. Some people will see a man’s traps, and say WOW, thats his best body part. ill look at those same Traps and say “Hm, i think his traps are a little too big for his body, it seems to create the illusion of a smaller chest.” That example goes perfectly with this picture. i think his traps take a bit away from his chest and the width of his delts.

I mean there is no doubting the man has a great body, but when you get to that level, critics HAVE to be extremely nit picky of proportions and symmetry, Simply for the fact that EVERYONE looks fucking amazing. I mean, Ammirite?!

Well, when you’re talking the O, or even top National level shows,… you take the guy who places last, and there’s a guy who is still one of the best bodybuilders on the planet. It’s way too easy to rip competitors apart in this sport, especially for those who never even step foot onstage themselves. I recently told someone who was getting ready for his first contest that “everyone on stage is the ‘big guy’ from his respective gym”.

It all comes down to perception. If Paco were in the same room as any of the people who cut him down, no one would be speaking negatively about any of his bodyparts, they’d ALL look HUGE -lol.

Haha Oh yea, no doubt. I totally agree. But you know how large of a role “reality” takes part in internet arguments. Lol we’ve all seen the Motivational poster of the ‘Internet Tough guy’

Whoa whoa whoa, I feel like you guys are ganging up on me because I pointed out a (relatively) weak bodypart on a bodybuilder.

This entire sport is about criticizing the strengths and weaknesses of people’s physiques. I never said, nor implied that this guy wasn’t huge, didn’t look great, etc. Nor was I disrespectful in any way.

I understand the constant need to defend bodybuilders from internet douchebag warriors, but really, criticism is what this sport is all about.

Now I demand an apology!

Lol not attacking you G funk. If you chose to READ MY POST, youd see that i also commented on on his traps. I ALSO stated the need to criticize, but not from 130lb weekend warriors!

SO YOU, apologize to ME! Bitch!

I’m surprised your inbox isn’t full…

But back on topic, Paco’s always been big, but he looks A LOT bigger than I remember seeing him last.
