im sure everybody seen pics of bodybuilders or some big guy in there area that we wanted to b like when we were young . who was your inspiration to b a freak ? mine was definetly DORIAN . i mean when i was young i fuking used to stare at the video's and pics over and over of him. every photo shoot and every olympia he ever did is etched in my mind forever the guy really changed my life for the better . any body else have inspiration like that ?
I'll never reach the level of "freak," not without pinning, but I was inspired to workout by my friend, Ben, in my senior year of high school. He was yoked as hell for a high school kid and that began my inspiration to lift.
I had trained for years, but losing my first wife is what set the wheels in motion to get as huge as possible, both genetically and chemically. Training was my life, my love, my wife now calls training "my mistress".
And Dorian was, is and will always be the one I most emulate in wanting to look like. Many great bodybuilders out there, in my book Dorian is the man!!
i would have to say it was my dad as well...i didn't start lifting until i was too old to really get as strong as my genetics would have let me if i had started say 15 years ago. dad was 205 with 675x2 squats and deadlifts. never got the chance to compete, blew his knee up before he got the chance, but he is the one that made me want to get strong
