    Rich was an excellent competitor. He ushered in a new era of what was considered ripped. Unfortunately he was in his heyday at the same time as Lee Haney and he could never defeat Haney.

    Rich had an awesome lower body. Great upper legs and incredible calves.

    Yikes d00d.

    I'm a mesomorph with thick skin, so I'll never have much vascularity. That's some serious dedication to look like that.

    I have a friend whom gets that vascular when he competes. When it comes down to that, it's mainly drugs and some genetics.

    he may be ugly, but he have a better physique than you do.

    if your going to comment on body builder pics. why not discuss there physique and not the face.
    if you want to discuss face there is probably a miss world site for comments like that.
    my exprience - joined gym 10 years ago, 6 1/2 years hard weight training exprience.

    If it helps, I saw Rich in March of last year and he looked quite good. He is no spring chicken these days...

    LOL, and you lift? Muscles atrophy bro, they dont sag or turn into fat. Get less info from your mom and more from a physiology book.

    If anyone has pics of his legs could you post them, he has an incredible look.

    Well iv seen pro body builders who were 60,70,80 ect... it wasn't prety, that's only because they went behond what nature is suppost to allow... with steroids and stuff like that... but it's a personal choice that's fine, it won't be mine though.

    That's not muscle, that's skin. Skin sags due to the reduction in elastin. If you don't want your skin to sag, jump off a bridge before you turn 50.

    whatever he took props to him, that was impressive, I seen Gaspari in person when his career was winding down, was short and thick although not as cut as he is in that pic. He was def in his prime in that pic........congrats to him and all he was able to accomplish!
