This guy is perhaps the best example of what a lifetime of bodybuilding can do to you.
I very much relate to his view on bodybuilding. basically what he’s saying is that most of the top guys had that classic X frame look back in the day and now alot of the aesthetics has been lost in favor of pure mass. “freak show, you pay to see a freak, you admire it, but you dont want to emulate it” as he put it.
There was a view here by some of the members that a massive increase in LBM will cause the waist size to balloon up, Toney is one of the examples of the many flaws in this view as he’s clearly saying here that back when he competed at the NPC level @ 190lbs his waist was at the same size as now, at 290lbs contest shape.
Something to think about.
