MUSCLE SIZE

BEFORE ENTERING A CONTEST YOU SHOULD MAKE SURE THAT YOU'VE DEVELOPED AN ACCEPTABLE AMOUNT OF MUSCLE SIZE, BECAUSE,  AFTER ALL, YOU ARE ENTERING A BODYBUILDING CONTEST. 

SIZE IS NOT,  HOWEVER, THE MOST IMPORTANT THNG BECAUSE THERE ARE MANY PEOPLE WHO HAVE DEVELOPED VERY, VERY LARGE MEASUREMENT BUT BECAUSE THEIR MUSCLE ARE NOT DEFINED AND SEPARATED THESE IMPRESSIVE MEASUREMENTS DO NOT SHOW UP ON STAGE AS BEING PHYSICALLY ATTRACTIVE.

TO LOOK GOOD,
MASS MUST BE ACCOMPANIED
BY LOW PERCENTAGE OF BODY FAT

THE BODYBUILDER IN SHAPE IS NOT NECESSARILY HUGE MAN OR WOMAN. IN FACT YOU WILL SEE MORE PEOPLE IN THE AUDIENCE WHO ARE FAR BIGGER THAN THOSE BODYBUILDERS ON STAGE. 


BUT IF YOU WERE TO PUT THOSE SAME HUMUNGOUS PEOPLE IN THE AUDIENCE ON STAGE, THEY WOULD NOT IN ALL LIKELIHOOD, LOOK IMPRESSIVE AT ALL.

SIZE HAS VERY LITTLE TO DO
WITH HOW YOU WILL APPEAR
UNDER STAGE LIGHTS

THIS IS WHY THERE IS OFTEN CONFUSION BACKSTAGE PRIOR TO A CONTEST. ON-LOOKER WILL NOTICE THAT ONE BODYBUILDER IS ALMOST TWICE  THE SIZE OF ANOTHER UNDER BACKSTAGE LIGHTING CONDITIONS AND OF COURSE, THE VARIOUS FINER POINTS OF DEFINITION CAN GO UNNOTICED. 

BUT IT IS WHEN THE TWO STAND SIDE BY SIDE THAT FREQUENTLY THE SMALLER BODY BUILDER TOTALLY OUTSHINES HIS LARGER COMPETITOR BECAUSE OF SUPERIOR SHAPE, DEFINITION, SEPARATION OR GENERAL PHYSIQUE  LINE.

EVERY MAN IS WHAT HE IS 
BECAUSE OF THE DOMINATING THOUGHTS 
WHICH HE PERMITS TO OCCUPY HIS MIND
FOCUS!

Correct.

However,.most people find it hard to appreciate definition & separation..

Most of us go for the bigger guy...

We are overwhelmed by the impression of the size...

As a judge at many of these events, including this one I find that size dazzles. But, what I find is that most of the time judges are not qualified to perform the duty of Judging. Therefore, they judge by size, and of course arms. Most of these judges cannot even define symmetry. Definition and separation are very important, as well as symmetry. Robby is right on. Dr. Stan

My pet peeve has always been the quality of the judges. Most were completely unaware of the judging rules, and usually were just friends of the promoter. This was absolutely unfair to the competitors. I have been out of the game for awhile, and maybe this has been corrected, but I doubt it. Robby can vouch for my feeling about the quality of judges.

Totally true. You have to have the complete package, size, definition and muscularity (like Robby has). And I believe that the bodybuilders of the golden era look better than the today's bigger ones because the reasons Robby explains in this post.

Very few people have the combination of size, coupled with symmetry, definition and symmetry. I have seen many greats in my life, but few have achieved this goal. Robby is one, Bill Pearl was another. However, there have been some smaller men that did not have great size that were also great like Padilla and Baldwin. These small men would be overlooked at the beginning of a competition because of their lack of size, but at the end they won because of their great symmetry, separation and definition. I myself think Robby is the greatest BB I have known. I think few would disagree.

I encourage Robby to invite his many friends in the BB & fitness world to comment on this blog...

I would like to read comments even by celebrites,like Arnold, Sly Stallone, the "old guard " of action actors who are close or in the same age as Robby...

Let's try to make this an
all-star (...past,present &...future...) blog...

After two contests this year where I lost out to guys who had less size but slightly better conditioning everywhere except the legs, and mine have never quite recovered from back and quad injuries, I get discouraged, because I don't get consistent commentary from judges.
