Who Is The World's Fittest Man?

I’m not an avid reader of Men’s Health or any other gay crap like that so I could really care less about who the ‘World’s Fittest Man’ is…

but what I would like to know is who’s the ‘World’s Baddest Muther-Fucker’…now that would be info worth having…

fitness fags suck cock (not that there’s anything wrong with that if that’s what you’re into).

“World’s Baddest Mother Fucker” probably also goes to Randy Couture. I love that guy. T-Nation should try to get an interview w/ him so all of us can whack it to something other than porn.

Lee Priest

Rulon Gardner is a freak: fat, but has phenomenal endurance and cardio. You wouldn’t think it looking at him though.

Its nice to have those gold-medal genes, isn’t it?

i heard that Lee Priest is gonna change his name to Fat Fatty Fat Fatnfatter Fats.

Okay, who do you think is the world’s fittest man, and why? Obviously this will depend heavily on how you define fitness, but I think it will be interesting to hear the variety of answers. [/quote]

Clarence Bass. Check out these picks.

The worlds fittest man is probily some one none of us know about. My guess would be a lumberjack from alaska or somebody just working out in their gararge or something like that. But my vote goes to Reinhold Messner, he has climbed Everest like 10 times.

Gardner beat Karelin who was 35 at the time and had not been scored on for 9 years. I talked to a couple of national level wrestlers yesterday. They respect Gardner, but said that it wouldn’t have been called “the greatest upset in wrestling history” if Gardner was actually the same species as Karelin. Read the part about him touching the chandelier with his foot.

Offered an NFL contract. If Karelin had as much fat as gardner he’d weigh 340. I AM NOT A wrestling fan in particular.

Also, about cardio. Anything that anyone does at a maximal aerobic for more than 30 minutes shouldn’t be taken into consideration. There is a 0.85 correlation between maximum 15 minute aerobic capacity and health factors, and a 1.00 correlation between 25 minute maximal aerobic capacity and health benefits. If you correlate aerobic capacity beyond minute 25, and factor out the benefits for the first 25 minutes, it actually correlates strongly with things like “sudden unexpected heart failure” and “supressed immune system”

Of course everyone is familiar with the fact that if you take different distance runners average weekly distance over the course of a year, that at more than 20 miles run/week (or 75 biked) every mile increases the chance of a serious health issue by 1-2% and you can even find a negative correlation between lifespan and total miles run over 20,000 in a lifetime. (20 years, 20 miles/week).

I think he HAS to do that pose to breath properly.

Rulon is an absolute freak. Natural farm boy powerful and does not get tired. Ever.

The guy that was laughing at him a few posts up obviously doesnt know any of this and would probably vote for a mens fitness
cover model over Rulon.

I dont know about world’s fittest man, but probably the most deceptively fit guy on the planet for sure.

I’m going with djohns on this one…

It PROBABLY is not someone famous…

Overall, it probably is a SEAL, or one of the yearly “Ultimate Ranger” contestants…or some Marine Recon guy, Legionaire…someone along those lines for TOTAL fitness, strength, agility, etc.

Great thread!

No, I suggested first that it would be Karelin. Again, I was laughing at the suggestion that Gardner was fitter than Karelin in his prime. If he was, than why was his beating a much older and past his prime Karelin considered to be the greatest upset of all time. Rulon is a super athlete, but it just shows how other-worldly Karelin was. Its a relative laugh.

9 times out of 10 Karelin would demolish Rulon, especially when Karelin was in his prime.

Game Over. Please re-insert tokens.

there are a lot of MMA guys who are really really fit.

why not Vitor Belfort for example? or how about Wanderlai Silva?[/quote]

Randy Couture has 100 times the fitness of Vitor Belfort. In each real fight they have had Belfort has never lasted.

mertdog,

Thats fair then. I would agree that Rulon could not beat Karelin in his prime.

im still going with couture as the fittest man but anyone remember rulon getting stuck in the snow after having snowmobile problems then walking out of it and suffering frostbite and also how he broke his hand and wrestled in the 04 olympics with pins in it… i would have to say his mental toughness is pretty amazing… now he is fighting MMA i didnt see his debut fight but from what ive heard he did farely well…


Keep fucking around. I’m telling you guys out of people that we know of…it’s Randy Couture.

Any REAL test of fitness and I bet he’d survive just fine. Lets not forget, he’s an olympian too.

I do have to agree though, it’s probably some Rogue Warrior-esque dude who’s tracking Osama Bin Laden right now.

He can bench 1000lbs w/o a shirt, squat 2000, deadlift Earth.

He runs 10miles in the snow with his rucksack as a warmup to his daily workout.

He know’s every martial art in the world, and can recite the alphabet backwards with each letter inverted.

Oh yes. He is.

GI-Joe.


actually for the nerd in you, do a realistic ‘study’ on Batman and you’d find that he accomplishes each of our ‘fitness’ tests.

I think the baddest motherfucker award should be considered “The Batman”.

You find this if you look in to “the Bat”:

-he is considered equal to an olympic medalist in almost every event.
-he has the strength of what we would term an elite level power lifter
-he is the 2nd most deadly fighter in the world, (2nd to “Lady Shiva”)
-his intellect is equal to that of several Ph.D’s…he could give stephen hawkins a run for his money.

batman is the most perfectly developed individual human on the planet.

ok i’m ranting…

Basically- I have absolutely nothing more to say. So here is a picture of a hottie.
