Seriously Epic Pic


#1

Big Lou with a wicked beard and Platz. Beyond classic, thought I'd share. Enjoy.


#2

LOL Platz shows off his legs in nearly every photo of him.


#3

Shit! I I would too if mine looked like that!! I'd have clear pants made, lol.


#4

Platz had a damn stacked upper body...his legs just make it look small.

And Ferrigno had big wheels as well.....and Platz makes him look kinda small.

Serious fucking legs.


#5


This is my favorite pic of Platz and my favorite cover for any muscle mag.

It has nostalgic value for me because I saw this issue in the library when I was 15 and it defined late 80s bodybuilding for me.


#6

Those older Weider rags were the best....Muscle and Fitness and Flex were the same exact thing every month.

With a different cover.


#7

Enjoy.
yes. yes I am.

You just never disappoint.


#8

do you mean the photo or inkcreep's avatar? Totally goes with the whole moody Halloween thing.


#9

Lol. Yes, that was my Halloween avi. Gotta come up with a new one now I guess :wink:


#10

Have no idea if this is true, but once read that Platz used to chew on a halved racquet ball to increase the size of his jaw muscles so his entire body would be proportional.


#11

If that were true I think he should have done the complete opposite...Platz's jaw was quite insane.


#12

In that pic Lou's arms are nearly as big as his legs.


#13

Anyone for Lee Priest's calves?


#14

Chewin' on racquet balls will do that.


#15

Flash you want to chew on some balls?

You feeling okay.


#16

Feeling A LOT better than ok Mr. Man (wink face).


#17

As a soleugastro challenged person, that makes me angry!!!


#18

LOL


#19

Dude, you're jacked everywhere else. Don't sweat the small stuff!

By the way, what're you doing for calves?


#20

I usually hit them 2-3 times a week with one seated and one standing move/ I go heavy and work in a variety of rep ranges.PLus I do a lot of high incline treadmill work. They come in pretty good after a while , but I have to fight for every inch. Plus I broke my fibula about 8 months ago and lost 3 freaking inches off of them due to ZERO lower body work and direct calf work.

I've put 2 inches back on in the past two months though, so eventually I'll get em growing. Just one of those problematic body parts for me that I have to prioritize, but as we all know they are boring as hell to work. I'm thinking about doing weighted carries with a safety squat bar while walking on my toes. That will throw in a conditioning element and not be so boring.
