    If I were you I'd be more respectful about what you say Johnnie Jackson is extremely strong in the big 3 power moves. Hell he works out with professional power lifting and world weight class record holding power lifter Matt Kroczaleski and does just fine with a lot of the same weight as him. Don't say what you don't know. Johnnie is extremely knowledgeable.

    Bodybuilders(apart from Arnold)getting Love on Sherdog?!:eek:

    I'll have to check my Bible, but I'm pretty sure that's one of the signs of the Apocolypse...

    "And the Angel of the Lord opened The Seventh Seal, and Bodybuilders were treated with respect on Sherdog and Lo!, the Multitude did cry unto the Heavans, Oh God, we're really fucked now!":icon_twis

    It might be interesting to see how the sport is portrayed. Maybe he goes to the school that has that powerlifting team that uses bench shirts and bands to bench 135lb.

    MTV did a good story on Kevin Nee when he was around 18.

    That's because this isn't a bodybuilding forum. Its a functional strength for combat sports forum. Go talk about 5 day splits NO explode, and your "pump" some place else. Not that its the worst thing ever, just any bodybuilding thread is essentially off-topic. people on here are more obsessed with being a good lifter than a good athlete/fighter as it is but body builders while knowledgable, and driven lift for an entirely differnt reason than we do...vanity. peacocks lifting so they can strut their feathers and do their curls for the girls. I am with mark rippetoe on this one I guess.

    Guys, calm down, I'm pretty sure he said there are BETTER choices out there... not that Johnnie is complete crap.

    And, I agree with Loz, loads of better people out there... if it's about powerlifting, why not just pick someone who's a full time powerlifter, not a bodybuilder who also does powerlifting. It doesn't do much for the image of the sport, kind of reinforces the idea that we're all massive freaks juiced up to the shit house.... although I suppose AAS is accepted in some feds.

    Yes, Johnnie Jackson is a bodybuilder, so he might not seem like an ideal candidate, but he is also a very accomplished powerlifter(I'm guessing his total weight is around 2000lbs) so assuming he uses or can teach good technique and is not just some genetic freak, he is great for that role.Plus, his physique would probably have a strronger(no pun intended) impact in the minds of the viewers than say, ed coan or a more traditional-looking powerlifter.

    You don't have to be a ripped bodybuilder to be on steroids... Look at Mark Bell, or Billy Mimnaugh, or Louie Simmons...

    If I was to bet, the truth is even sadder, as the average person who juices is likely some skinny/fat 150-200lber with the distinct belief that steroids will magically transform him.
