The best bodybuilders are the ones that can keep their heads above water.
Bodybuilder, fitness model and author Mike Bivins says it’s not about what you look like, but how you’re doing.
It’s about the intensity, not the shape.
“You have to be physically capable of competing,” Bivans, who has won the Guinness World Records, the Arnold and Arnold Classic, and the American Bodybuilding Federation titles, told The Associated Press on Tuesday.
“The more I’ve done in my career, the more I know that you can’t compete with a bodybuilder if you’re not physically capable.”
Bivans is an internationally known trainer and has worked with world-renowned competitors including former world champion and current UFC fighter Ronda Rousey.
He’s been on the cover of the “Man of the Match” magazines for more than 20 years.
“I think the biggest thing for the bodybuilder is not that he’s gay, but what kind of life they live,” he said.
He says it takes a certain type of person to compete in a bodybuilding contest.””
It’s very, very difficult to be a normal person in a gym.”
He says it takes a certain type of person to compete in a bodybuilding contest.
“If you look at the best bodybuilder of all time, the guy that won the Arnold Classic in 2005, the last one, he won the bodybuilding competition by being able to keep his head above water,” he added.
“But, if you look to other bodybuilders, if they are in a competition, they’re not necessarily in a position to compete with the body builder.”
He said the reason the gay bodybuilding community has been so successful is because they’re “not afraid to speak their mind.”
“The bodybuilder community, the gay community, they really are not afraid to take on the bullies in the gym, and they are the true champions in the gay world,” he continued.
“They can compete and have a very competitive life.
They can compete with anybody.
And that’s really the best thing.”
