Those are kind of disgusting if you ask me. I'd love a ripped set of legs, but the vascularity doesn't interest me. For some reason, a vascular chest or pair of arms seems a lot more appealing to me.

You should see the vascularity in his chest!

Who is that, Chris? I don't think it's Gaspari (perhaps butching the name), is it?

that guy's quads are, indeed, ripped. but they do not hold a candle to the unbelievably absurd rippedness of branch warren's quads:

they can have those legs, as much as i like size, those legs look like someone just dropped a bunch of play-dough on the ground

The guy is Mike Watson, the picture is from Super High Intensity Bodybuilding by Ellington Darden.


The guy in Narc's pics is a good example of what a in shape bodybuilder's thighs look like at around contest time (assuming good legs). It blows the mind, no?

my legs want to look like that when they grow up

I think those legs (2nd set) look awesome. I love that look.

Narcissus

me too. they look insane. but i am going to have to disagree with you about that being the general condition of an in-shape bodybuilder's legs around contest time. the only few people that come immediately to mind as having better separation, striations, absurdness, and development in their quads is jay cutler and...um, well, jay cutler. am i mistaken? did you see the thread i started about hollibaugh's calves? they are insane as well.

I should have qualified that as an in-shape national level bodybuilder. What I don't think you guys understand is that his thighs would not look quite as impressive onstage. The lighting in the gym makes them look better than they would on stage. Two gyms I have trained at were owned by national level, or professional bodybuilders, and they had thighs that were very similar to that when seen in person at the gym. They probably didn't look quite that good, but close.

Also, as far as appearance goes, I dunno if you can drag the leg extension machine onto the stage to put the kind of stress on em that is necessary to get that kinda seperation.

chris mason
04-08-2003, 01:45 PM
All you have to do is be ripped and have the right lighting, no leg extension required.

Yes but putting your leg under the strain of heavy poundage is gonna make things buldge a hell of a lot more than any pose would I'd think. I didn't say he was ripped because of the leg extension, just that the seperations are that much greater because of it.

Actually ElP you can! It's new round being added, each competitor gets to haul out one piece of equipment on stage and perform a set for the judges! :D

Let me clear up a misconception. You cannot achieve a more thorough contraction using a leg extension apparatus than without. The reason is that leg extensions place the maximum resistance in the contracted position, and the resistance literally prohibits one from achieving a full contraction if much resistance is used. The greatest extension of the knee (fullest contraction)can be achieved with zero load.

So you are saying he could just pose standing on stage, and his legs would look as good or better than it does in that pic?

No doofnuts, I am not. I already mentioned that the gym lighting is much better than stage lighting. I am saying that he would look just as good posing in that same gym under the same light.:cool:

Doofnuts!

Listen ass spelunker! :p I am not speaking of the lights at all, let's assume lights are not a factor. I am speaking of the equipment putting stress on the legs. SO, I just want to know, if that guy stood up, in the gym with the same lights, and posed/flexed, would his legs look as good, ie. seperation, as he IS getting whilst training in the leg extension?

Ass Spelunker! :cool:

WillKuenzel

I have to wonder about that myself. Does the seperation include the vascularity because when working out it get some pretty nice vascularity but when posing even just moments later I can't get quite the same look. Under the same lights and everything.

I think the added tension does play some part it adding to the effect.

SoulOfKoRea
04-10-2003, 11:02 AM
I think increased vascularity during workouts would be due to the muscles filling with blood

chris mason
04-10-2003, 03:57 PM
Ok, I will stake the validity of my opinion on the following: 1) I have actually competed 2) I have trained with a Mr. Universe winner 3) I have witnessed several professional and national level bodybuilders train 4) I have been to local and national level bodybuilding shows.


If the above doesn't work for you, then so be it.

ElPietro

Ok gopro, err I mean chris. j/k man. :p :D

All I am saying, is that every single picture I've seen of someone lifting heavy amounts of weight, you see every single striation, every imaginable amount of muscle seperation possible, yet you don't see this when they pose. So if your experience says otherwise fine, but from every mag pic, pic on wbb, and from me looking in the mirror, while under heavy weight stress versus just flexing, it's the exact opposite. And also seems that way from the leg pic there, which you are attributing 100% to lighting, which I also don't buy. Perhaps without lifting and just posing you can flex more muscle groups at once which looks better, but I think isolating a muscle under heavy load will always make it come out more than just a pose/flex.

We will just have to disagree on this.

chris mason

I could never even hope to achieve what he claims...


One more thing, I never said the light is 100% responsible. What I said was that he, and anyone, looks more ripped in that gym lighting than onstage.
