stop working out. stop taking steroids. Stop eating protein. He hasn’t competed in about 5 years now
But why would you stop lifting if it’s been such a huge part of your life? I don’t think any other retired pro has dropped off like that. I know it sounds like I’m just some internet forum guy busting his balls from the safety of my desk. I’m not. I understand the argument of ‘all or nothing’ in regards to what he does or doesn’t do in the gym, but I can’t empathize.
I would have thought that Levrone would have ended up like Dorian Yates: still in sick shape. But if Levrone feels like he needs to be putting his energy elsewhere to get what he wants out of life, then I’m sure he’ll succeed if he puts in the same drive he had when he was competing in shows.

The dude wants to be an actor. Let him be one if he can. If you stay big and ripped, you get typecast as a bouncer, bodyguard or a random dumbass jock, especially in this day and age where Toby McGwire can get chosen to play a super strong super hero.
Michael Clarke Duncan is the first big actor I’ve seen make that work for him recently since the 80’s…and according to press, he is now down to about 260lbs now…after weighing as much as 320-340lbs for Daredevil.
