    Body Builders (Not athletic in HS)

    I find that most body builders that I know were not active in sports in high school or college, is that true? Are we just catching up, or is it the other way around, we just waited longer to use our incredible potential?

    I played hoops/baseball/track in high school. In college I played football for a year, but I was always a basketball player. Sports was always a part of me.

    I ran track. Was invited by the coach to join football in HS and invited by the team captain to join rugby (club sport) in college, but opted for for other activities--didn't have much time since I had more than one major.

    I'd be surprised if most lifters weren't athletic before hitting the weights.

    I always tell people that I was like Beavis and Butthead in HS and college. Skinny, long hair, headbanger and did nothing but smoke weed and drink.

    BB is something I started long after college. Decided to start lifting one day and have never looked back, I love it!

    I weighed 135lbs in high school. But I was always looking at bodybuilding magazines. Now i'm 225 with low body fat so I think i was the opposite. I played sports on my own but wasnt a athelete.

    fottball , wresting and track I started lifting when I was 14 my dad brought home a weight set one day and for the most part made me start lifting. So then when I started trying out for sports I was way ahead of kids that young and I excelled and loved it.

    only 2 years of wrestling before I began bodybuilding/powerlifting. I was the fat geek in junior high but the training maniac in high school.

    Wrestling built the mental foundation I needed to be disciplined enough to pursue bodybu8ilding goals

    Dude, I gotta call BS on this. You are only 18 y/o according to your profile so you are only a year out of high school and you are 90lbs. heavier, with low body fat? I'm gonna have to see a pic!

    I only played sports on my own, never with a HS team or anything...never had time. But I played Hockey, Volley Ball, Base Ball, Foot Ball, and I started lifting in HS too. I grew up with a few guys that were FAT and strong....So to prove my point I started lifting and showed them what a skinny little kid could do! Pound for pound I was much dtronger than all the othre people my age.

    You know what. I am seeing a trend developing here!! Is it just me or is everyone calling BS on MASStermind??? Could it be because he is FULL OF CRAP! MASStermind, what do you have to prove?? Why do you seem to lie sooo much?? Keep it simple and keep to the truth!! You have nothing to gain from lieing!

    well I have to say I am on the B.S. call too I was thinking the same thing but I wanted to stay quiet. 90 lbs of lean body mass in even 2 years is BS

    Wasn't above average at the other sports ('cept maybe areas of track).. but had a knack for growth so switched completely to bodybuilding..

    All the other bodybuilders i know (and i know a few) were atheletes in highschool...

    On what do You base your observations?

    Well in school i used to play soccer and rugby (any americans played rugby? its a real mans sport!). I used to run alot, but nothing major, i love how healthy i used to be, i would be like lets run to town, just for the hell of it. Ive never been that up on sports, but i kept healthy. I started at the gym when i was 16.

    i was the skinny guy in high school.. but i was always fierce, just so nobody would even think of bullying me.. probably played soccer for a couple of years and that's it..

    and i had a really strict diet in high school..
    6am 2 slices of bread, cup of milk
    2pm lunch (small serving of chicken, fish or whatever)
    8pm dinner (same as lunch)

    yeah come to think of it, not only was i inactive, i was severely malnutritioned =/

    Played hockey from the time i was 6 till 18, joined the weight team my freshman year of highschool did that all 4 years, tried football my junior year and decided i just wanted to lift weights so i quit. I quit hockey right outta highschool because i was jipped outta a full ride to play hockey at several colleges because of a certain coach, and my family couldnt afford to help me get new equipment. But i went to college anyways here at a local school and just kept bodybuilding.........
