  1. Markus Ruhl ?


    I was reading the newest Muscular Development magazine and saw that Markus Ruhl (synthol man) is retiring from IFBB bodybuilding.

    This is new to me as I have not seen this anywhere else.

  3. I remember when I saw a video of Ruhl getting ready for a contest. He was smoking to suppress his appetite...

    That's when I discovered the difference between being healthy, and being a bodybuilder.

    LOL whats sad about the pic? Looks like a pro bb to me.

  8. It's ashame if he is I don't think anyone here has a right to hate on the man. After all he gave everything he had for the sport he loved. So for those that say he's a joke, give me a break. Think about the blood, sweat, and tears that went into developing the gobs of muscle he has.

    He is a beast no doubt, but you cant honestly say synthol filled guys to this degree are healthy for the sport.

    Can you honestly say the majority of the IFBB Pro Circuit is healthy for the sport? There is so much of a push to obtain these physiques which cannot be naturally obtained.

    I tend to agree. Most people you ask think the guys steppin' on stage nowadays are gross-looking.


    And Markus Ruhl was one UGLY mammajamma.

    The bodybuilders themselves are not sad freaks, the judges/governing body of the IFBB are sad freaks, pushing the sport in the uber huge freaking direction...

    if IFBB pros dont become huge "sad" freaks, their not gonna do well...that is infact the sad part...

    really! I thought chicks dug abdominals that looked like a turtle shell.lol

  17. i have alot of respect for the man and if he uses synthol then he is the best at it. Ive seen him workout and he definately worked hard to get where he has.

    agree, he is a strong f'er too, regardless of synthol

  19. I like the German pro's, Wolf, Ruhl, Gunter etc.

    Agree. But back in Arnold's days, the competition was much thinner. I think there was one Mr. Olympia he won against just one other contender, if my recollection is right! Today, competition is quite dense and the athletes push themselves beyond limits. Consistently. Although I am not a Ruhl fan, I think he has done a lot for his sport.

    looks like he needs a bran muffin..lol

  22. all the pros use synthol............he just happens to be one of the ones who stands out for his use.........jay cutler has been looking real blocky for the last 2-3 years and this year was the worst.

    my question is where is this sport going........i mean guys 5' 9" competing at 300lbs......these guys are far from healthy at all.......using cocaine or cigarettes on a cut so they shred up faster.......i think steroid use is the least of their problems.

  23. I read this in last months Flex. Kind of sad to see him go, but his placings in the O went from good to bad to ok to last place.

    I think he could do well in other arenas, but he needs to lay off the IGF-1 if its not too late already, and lay off the Synthol as well. The Mr O pics I saw he seemed to have a huge imbalance between his delts and the rest of his damn body lol. Mostly I think his legs aren't what they need to be to balance the top half of him.

    So, with Coleman out, and Ruhl out, are there any other 'old timers' around besides Jay? By old timers I mean people that were in the magazines in about 1995 when I started lifting.

    Gunter is awesome. I got to meet the guy at my gym a few years ago, and the guys delts are the size of his head. Other than Lee Priest, I'd never stood next to a pro before. I was flat out amazed.

    And his wife was hot.:donut:

  25. From the videos I've seen of him, it seemed like he was a nice guy.

    I hope he is successful in whatever he decides to do next.

    Wolf is the man!!!!

    Hell yeah. I think if Jay does what he says, which was to win 3 or 4 then bow out, Wolf will take it if Martinez doesn't but I think Wolf has a way better balance being his abs aren't like some of the others.

  28. Wolf really really really improved i mean he looked good asthetically and looked bigger than alot of the other guys. Good condition too. I hope he comes in like that next year with a little more lower back and legs.
