    I have to agree with you. and yes to each his own, different strokes for different folks. most people say "I'ld never want to look like that" becuase they simply CANNOT. I'd like to look like that but my genetic wont allow me to.

    I would never want to look like Ronnie Coleman MM...I like playing sports, sleeping without an oxygen mask, being able to scratch my own back, and see my own dick without having to roll back my GH gut, hahaha, i just don't like coleman, obviously, lol

    Undecided, looking anything like Coleman isn't something I think many of us have to worry about, not even if we spent a lifetime trying to acheive it.

    I don't care too much for him personally, but the dude's a freak, you gotta respect what he's accomplished and sacrificed to be where he's at today.

    LOL, I feel you, but I wonder what Ronnie would have to say about you. fair is fair, he would have a right to his own opinion just like you do.

    Carlos, your right , here is something to think about. at the NY Pro, Darrem beat Dennis, if that was the Olympia, would the olympia judges allowed Darrem Charlie to place in front of Dennis James?? my opinion is I DOUBT IT. yes smaller guys can win smaller shows but we have to face reality, thats not th ecase when it comes to the Olympia. believe me I would love nothing more than smaller guys to start winning the Olympia, which will mean I might have a change because I cannot get that freakie size, so it would benefit me and you as well, but it is what it is for now.

    It does look like you don't like Colman, which is a shame because he as done huge amounts for the sports and his physic speaks for itself,

    Just a shame you cant recognize this or even more so SEE it

    Regardless of anyone's particular bent, you gotta give the pros (and amateurs) respect. They've had to sacrifice personal time, money, relationships, etc., in order to build up their body (along with a few helpings of sauce along the way) to extreme proportions, for which the payoff is relatively small. Only the top guys can actually make money and come away with more than a few trophies to show for it.

    While we can all pick on a bodybuilder's particular weaknesses (and yes, I'm guilty of that as well) and argue the merits of some over others, they all deserve respect for what they have accomplished. And while I might prefer Jay and Dexter over Ronnie and Markus, I wouldn't mind looking like any of them. These guys have physiques (and so do some AR members) that 99% of the world's population don't. I'd say that uniquely qualifies them for a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T (sing it Aretha), especially from members of an AAS forum.

    Cheers to all!

    Yeah, but dude its kinda like the saying, "you'd rather have people laughin with you than laughin at you"...I mean yeah people are in awe when they see that, but at the same time, its like "wow thats amazing, but I'm glad I'm don't look like that"...And ofcourse some of the members of this board will say things like, "oh well they couldn't look like that if they tried" and that is prolly true, but that doesn't change the fact that they don't want to look like a freakshow even if they could....

    What i don't understand is, why are you so passionate about this kind of debate. I would bet my house that deep down inside you would LOVE to look like Ruhl.

    lol, he hasn't stepped on stage yet and doesn't understand the addiction that will soon follow. Give him another 5wks after his contest and see how he responds

    It's not about how big you can get it's about perfecting the body God gave you, Markus Ruhl has done just that with the genetics he was dealt.

    You are very negative for someone who wants to compete. You do realize the 'average' person you're describing would laugh at you on stage in oil and posing trunks. Not laugh with you, at you and call you a gay freak for being on stage.

    Exactly!

    Personally I could careless what anyone thinks. I am trying to perfect my body. Reach the goal of what I see as perfect and screw anyone else who disagrees.

    I think too many people blame their genetics for not being able to achieve the kind of mass that the pro's like Coleman and Ruhl have. Below is a picture of what Ruhl used to look like at 19 years of age, he wasn't exactly big naturally, neither was Ferrigno who was a skinny nerd lookin character in his teens. Ofcourse there are some genetically unfortuante people who just cannot grow, but i think most people just don't understand what it takes to look like a pro, the dedication, the iscolation, sacrifice, brains(bodybuilding is mostly mental), the money(these people probably spend 100k+ a year just on AAS & GH etc, not including food). What i'm trying to say is, good genetics isn't all these guys have, my hat goes off to them for their dedication and hard work and i would kill to one day achieve what Markus Ruhl has.

    not wanting to look like a pro isnt an issue for most and never will be. we arent that lucky.

    its not ronnie or ruhl's fault they can carry 275 shredded to the glutes. they are the alpha and ***** of the bodybuilding culture along with schlierkamp. that kind of size is serious and deserves alot of credit and respect. drugs only played a part, that is a lifetime of work.

    I agree. In bodybuilder terms, Ruhl is a freak in every good sense of the word. The dude's as big as a house and I'm in awe at the mere thought of the dedication it took to build his body to those proportions.

    Ah, well, don´t have a pic at hand right now, but take a look at Andreras Klöden Nr2 tour de france, winner of Dauphine Libere and tell me something more about genetics (and look at some of his opponents) :-))
