    Great genetics, combined with a 100% daily dedication to diet and training. Plus, a set of great drugs to go with it(Tren, Test, Cheque Drops, ECA, Anavar, etc...).

    As the olympics are going on take a look at a number of athletes like boxers, sprinters and rowers and you will see they are all pretty big guys. As someone who rows, I would say the basic principles are the same. Lift weights and eat huge:- you get bigger and stronger. Do lots of cardio and eat huge:- you get fitter (and don't lose muck weight). I think what enables the rowers and boxers to maintain their 17stone frames is eating 6000calories a day, having good gentics and improving over time.
