TOP BodyBuilders WITH BIG BELLIES: THE NORM OR SPORTS LAZINESS?

TOP BodyBuilders WITH BIG BELLIES: THE NORM OR SPORTS LAZINESS?

The golden era of bodybuilding was marked by the desire of athletes for an aesthetic appearance and ideal proportions. Take, for example, Arnold Schwarzenegger. His figure resembled ancient Greek sculptures – huge arms, pumped up chest muscles and shoulders, a narrow waist. However, over time, the situation has changed. And now it is not uncommon for professional bodybuilders to see a protruding belly.

Champion Ronnie Coleman



This eight-time Mr. Olympia title holder had a beautifully muscled body early in his career. Huge shoulders and massive biceps robbed his competitors of the slightest chance of winning. No wonder he was called the king of bodybuilding.

Ronnie’s career began to grow in 1991. And after 5 years, the athlete received serious injuries due to poorly warmed up muscles before training.

After prolonged treatment, Ronnie was able to return to bodybuilding. He even improved some indicators, but he paid for the success with his own health. No wonder it is said that the best is the enemy of the good.

In pursuit of the perfect body, Ronnie lost something: now in many photos you can see an ugly protruding belly. The joints also suffered – some of them were worn out so much that they had to be replaced with artificial ones.

Overconfident Alessandro Savi



Instagram of this athlete has more than 3.5 thousand subscribers. He has good muscle size and decent relief. However, a strongly protruding belly spoils the overall impression. It can be seen in almost any position.

Apparently, Alessandro is unable to suck in his stomach even while posing.

Predator Kai Green



This actor, artist and bodybuilder from a young age tried to stand out from the crowd. One of his distinguishing features was an extravagant hairstyle: a pair of braids falling from a completely bald head.

Kai Green has developed his own back and leg pumping technique: he uses the Jefferson squat, which allows you to perfectly work out the hips and buttocks. 

With the muscles and dimensions of the athlete, everything is in order. But the bulging belly, alas, spoils the overall picture. If not for this circumstance, he could have had every chance of winning the Mr. Olympia competition, according to many experts.

However, an annoying feature does not prevent Kai from having many fans around the globe. In his free time from sports activities, the athlete paints his own portraits. Some time ago, an exhibition of his work was organized, which received positive reviews from both fans and critics.

Aesthetic Big Lanny



He is called the worst bodybuilder ever. The athlete hides his real name even from close friends.

The proportions of this athlete are far from ideal. Frankly speaking, it is difficult to call him even a bodybuilder – in the sense that is usually laid down in this concept.

Lanny’s main distinguishing feature is a huge belly covered with flabby skin. However, this does not prevent an athlete from taking part in competitions, and even taking places close to the prize money.
