    They do, I'm not saying these people have no muscle at all lol, however in comparison to powerlifters or bodybuilders it confuses people with how they hold up so much weight while also relatively not having that same level of mass as you see in those that are into the aesthetics world of lifting.

    You see Iliya off the drugs and in his normal self walk down the beach, people wouldn't think he would be an elite level athlete.
