Remember Marko Savolainen?


Damn, this dude was epic!


Front bi


Back bi




Rear lat


Front lat spread, and those God-awful tights!


A bit of inspiration… DL


This year…


Similarity between him and Centopani is insane. Wats his old stats like in comparison. Even could be a bit bigger in the legs and bicep peaks though.



Height: 5’9

Off Season Weight: 310 lbs.

Competition Weight: 245 lbs.

Biceps: 24" Pumped


Height: 5’11

Off season 300 lbs

Competition weight 250 lbs

Biceps 23"

Yeah, similar!




Ha ha…

Damn, I thought this thread was going to reveal that Marko had died.

…because he didn’t stand out. I never even knew his name. I just saw his picture a few time in mags, but compared to the top in the sport, his legs are lacking and he isn’t as aesthetic as others making the top ten.

I am actually surprised to see a thread like this because I doubt too many other people knew his name either.


His blog (in Finnish): http://www.markosavolainen.blogspot.com/

He’s still training despite some kidney problems, though I can’t remember what.


I remember him. His biceps were ridiculously big and high peaked. I think he tore his biceps at some point.


He’s impressive, but I must differ because I think Marko’s biceps were bigger.


Right, the back shot comparison. I posted a pic of some bber who is black, in addittion to not being Evan or Marko. By the way, I think Marko wins the rear double biceps easily. Here he is:


And here’s Evan:
