  5. Most respect to Tom Platz, the most developed legs in history. Quadzilla squatting 500 for high reps (20+) like a monster and even the great Kaz was mirin.

  7. I love in the comments when some ditsy chick says eww gross they looked better before as if the motivation for bodybuilding and strength training is getting a girlfriend lol the last thing on the minds of these men is how “sexy” they look to some unmotivated dumb fucking bitch. stay strong.

    • It’s not polite to talk to or about women in that way. You should apologize. Also, try doing some research on the long-term effects that steroid abuse has on a body. I know you probably don’t care about what I’m telling you but that doesn’t change the fact that you have a big mouth that would be better off sealed-up tight with a pneumatic finish nailer that I have in my garage. Just saying. Have a good one and try practicing some self-discipline.

    • You sound angry. Dudes (inc most male bodybuilders) look at female roided out bodybuilders in the same way (ie grotesque and unattractive), so don’t know why you’re so offended. BB today is freak obsessed, aesthetics are a thing of the past unfortunately.

  8. That’s gross… women like men with some muscles and a great tone to their body. But I have to say alot of the before pictures looked better. A couple after pictures look great but most of the were just nasty.

    • Well I like muscles on a guy but they all look better in the before pics to me, perhaps with the exception of Lou F. Did they post the wrong before pic of Kai Green? That’s 2 AFTER pics there I think.

  13. No doubt this guys have worked so hard for years and decades to attain that kind of body.

    But this is definitely whats true and certain, I can relate to those guys above.


    No way you can be ripped, big and strong as they are without Steroids.

    I used Synthol and Winstrol and my gains suddenly jumped up tremendously.

    Also KEVIN LEVRONE is the most shocking transformation, from skinny to scary massive. awesome!
