    MTV True Life

    MTV True Life, the show that is on right now has a guy who wants to be a bodybuilder. Is this a repeat or is this new? The guy claims to be natural but doesn't look it.

    Thanks, I remember seeing something like that so I wondered if this was a repeat. I'll search for the thread.

    Hmm ... you know me. I think he needs more legs. His upper body has good symmetry and he could use more lower back.

    Like i said in the original thread (or meant to anyway), it's not his physique, per se, that makes me doubt his status as a natural, but rather the fact he is able to maintain it during cutting on what appears to be a HORRID cutting plan. Again, I coulda sworn he mentioned being under 1200 or 1800 calories a day and doing it in three meals??? Not 100% on that, but i do recall being shocked by his dietary approach to cutting.

    Just remembered, he also said that he doesn't have the benefits of using drugs like steroids , so I'd say that he'd use them if he had the chance. Plus he has been training for about 11 years he said

    I'd say that on national television as well since I've come to value things like a job and my personal freedom.

    he had to have been in a natural show cause it said if he won (or placed top 3, don't remember) he would be a pro...don't get me wrong, he he a very good build but nowhere near even big enough to win a state show, much less go pro...

    Dat guy is from my area...

    Never seen him though ... but my guess was natural too. Da guys that juice in my gym and do competitions make that guy looks small as ****...

    The funniest part i thought was when the father goes ...

    "IF YOU HAD A BETTER LOOKIN FACE YOU'D DEFINATELY WIN" (or something like that) .... haha

    I'm not sure that indicates a whole lot, as there are several open juicers on this board alone that aren't up to his level. I remain convinced he's a user because of the sheer disgustingness of his cutting diet.

    I'd rip on my son too if he was still living at home and doing nothing but going to the gym. Then I'd make him mow the lawn.

    ....after shaving his ass of course. If that was my son. I'd tell him to shave his own ass and get a real job.

    I agree totally with this....and 2 other signs that made me skeptical...

    1) the diet....I thought he said 1,800 calories too. Why would he be munching just lettuce with all that chicken they had laid out at the table? After his contest he eats a cake and says he'll be back to strict dieting tomorrow for another show. A natty would shrivel up on that diet.

    2) He states that if his trainer told him to "go out in the yard and eat dog ****", he'd do it if it helped him prepare better for this show. That kind of mentality spells juicer to me.

    not to mention his physique was unusually impressive for a natty.

    the whole lettuce thing had to be for show...very unlikely he wasn't choking down shakes and chicken off camera...you know how they exaggerate when they make those shows...

    Natural or not, he was impressive. He seemed to live for the gym, so he gained my respect. Who gives a **** if you're living at home or not.

    true life episode

    Okay here is the truth, he is natural always was. Yes he could of had juice if he wanted to. his diet wasn't 2 heads of lettuce, he started at 3,500 cals and worked down to 2,500 and some days went down to 2,000 with a three day lo carb. Just to shock his diet other times I spiked his calories up to about 2,800 when he got stale. Believe it or not he is a good kid with very good genitics and is also very quiet. The mistake he made was when he was 20 he placed 3rd in the natural America. But then decided to get into modeling which kept his size down because they wanted him to stay lean. Just answering some questions.
