    Strongest Athletes

    Bodybuilders are the strongest athletes in the world. If you don't believe me, how come they have the biggest arms and not be considered the strongest?

    1) they aren't athletes.

    2) for their size and BW I would say most of them are pussies compared to powerlifters or olympic lifters of the same size and BW.

    Not athletes, thus the conversation ends.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    This is a stupid thread
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    Klaus Kaas has the biggest arms around. They say he is the strongest man in Europe.

    Where do you come up with this drivel? Bodybuilders rarely even talk poundages, strength is not of interest to the bodybuilder.

    A STRONG bodybuilder can bench press for example, 500 a few times. There are 'nobody' powerlifters that can bench that over 10 times.

    Well, when my Brother went to the gym he told me that the Bodybuilders had the best bench, squat, deadlift around and ever seen at that gym.

    One gym is hardly going to determine world-wide fact.

    seriously big ronnie coleman only benches like 535, and he is a big bastard, but i would expect more from him, i mean magnus samuelson a powerlifter can bech like 675, and he carries alot of body fat. so no i do not think bodybuilders are the strongest, half of the lighter powerlifters could beat the heavy bodybuilders.
    These are my dreams, which I must make reality!

    I think that is a lot of weight for any bodybuilder. Comparing bodybuilders to powerlifters is like apples to oranges.

    Based on this article coleman benches 500 for 5 sets of 12....big difference. He also leg presses 2500 lbs for sets of 12. Coleman is strong as the fuck. But definitely not a powerlifter. That's a whole other world. I bet coleman has more money though heh.

    true true he does have more money. but belive me i am not saying he is weak, 2500 pound leg press are insane, but look at his legs they are just as insane.

    Now, we can say BB's "MAY" do something athletic as part of their training
    but this is not part of their competition...

    Just as Football or Basketball players "MAY" do strength and conditioning
    as part of their training...
    ...But their competition is highly athletic!


    BB is pretty gay, You may look good, but dont you reeeeeally want to compete
    in something, BBW?

    Have Problems?... Chances are its due to overpopulation

    I would believe him to bench press more than 535 raw, but almost 700 is doubtful. I would also bring to mind, his lack of perfect form. I doubt his form looks good enough for me to call 12 reps of his, 12 real reps. Look at his leg presses for example, huge numbers but very short range of motion - he trains ALL lifts that way from what I've seen in his videos.

    Strong as hell? Yes. I doubt his bench form would get a green light in a PL competition though.

    Are you saying Ronnie is a BBW? I never thought of him as attractive really.
