And if they didn't, maybe they didn't know about it then and probably would have done it if the knowledge of it was there.

not knocking the natural game at all, i think the passion they have for health and fitness is superb and they look unbelievably good up on stage.

I personally dont think a 4% bf is healthy or maintainable thats all. I know it is done for a show or a shoot or whatever and thats fine, but i think a lot of people think these guys walk round like that all year round and strive in vain to look like that all the time. I think it is the fault of the Pro (unnatural) circuit as those guys are dangerously lean and the whole game gets tarred with the same brush unfortunately.
