You can clearly see his abs when flexing.
Weight is around 250 pounds. Height is about 190cm = 6 foot 3.

Still natty, never juiced anything...

As I mentioned before danish rules in powerlifting are super strict when it comes to performance enhancing drugs.
He has been tested, ive seen the results, and I believe him 100%.

Genetics arent some magical thing but they can definetly make you above average. That being said... Nobody has bad genetics.

Anyone heard of Nick Wright of youtube? Nick has a solid back, strong legs og massive arms.... But a small chest compared to the rest of his body.

Marc Lobliner has a Massive torso, big delts but small arms..

Do you know what I am saying?
Please keep in mind that passing a drug test has nothing to do with being drug free. Not saying your friend is lying, just making sure you know there is a difference.

Is this Nick Wright?



If so those arms are 18 at best. More likely 17.25 to 17.5". I'd bet a cow I was within 0.5 inches. I realize you didn't say his arms were 20, but since he was mentioned as having exceptionally large arms in a relative manner, I wanted to comment about their true size.

Compare the arm size to head size. Now compare my arm size to head size. This provides a good reference for comparison. My arms were 18.75".

Do you know what I am saying?
Yes, some people have better looking body parts, but that doesn't mean they are necessarily bigger. Bodybuilding is very much a sport of illusion.

The subject of natural potential has been studied to death. The notion of "natural freaks" with amazing arm sizes at lean body weights is simply a myth, unless they have some kind of rare growth hormone disorder.

I've been around scores of natural pros, and folks like Lobliner, Norton, etc. My arms are 18.75 at a high bodyfat, and they dwarf every lean natural pro I've ever met. Lean my arms are only 16.75". The only 20" natural arms are on fatties (present company included) or men with giantism.

I've been having discussions like this for a decade, and have yet to meet one lean natural with anything close to 20" arms. I have yet to see one legit picture with a taping close to 20" arms.

People continue to call me an idiot regarding this topic, but my arms remain bigger than theirs and aren't close to 20".

Yep thats him..

I think he has been measured around 18" at 190 pounds with an average physique ( not stupid shredded)
In the picture I believe he is about 17" at 175 pounds? - not sure.

I dont believe in genetic freaks. Every one is different. Some are above average and some are just average - nobody is superior.


Bendthebar; What is your bf? Have you cutted down recently to see what is behind the fat? They might not be 20" but you might be close than you think.

Picture might still be missing but nothing is impossible

Jbyrd.. No sarcasm taken
Greg Valentino is 100% natty. Now thats sarcasm!
