    best bodybuilding documentaries


    id put "pumping iron" at number one cause its just a classic...another really good one i watched was "bigger stronger faster" if u haven't seen it u should def check it out, its really interesting, and Kai Greene's "redemption" & "overkill" watched it on youtube, good stuff! really gets in the mind of Kai...anyways, if u got any to share go for it.

    Dave Pulcinella's "Raising the Bar" series. I can watch that everyday, nothing can be more motivating imo.

    Ronnie Coleman cost of redemption. I don't know what it is about it but when ever it comes time for a meal that I'm not wanting to force down I turn that on watch him eat and i get hungry! For the food and another training session.

    I really don't have a favorite but most of them are all awesome. This one to me is the most motivating, it's called "Afghan Muscles" a bodybuilding documentary in Afghanistan where you have these guys that have virtually NO resources and still find ways to be competitive bodybuilders. The struggles make me appreciate what i have around me more than anything. We don't realize what we take for granted!

    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    Good Motivation....


    I have seen this documentary, and really it's amazing that the body builders still compete with others without having any resources. Really a motivation for those who want to succeed in body building with limited resources.

    It's more than likely this one, if not link me to it if you can. I enjoy the motivation from them.

    I like how after they'd filmed the documentary, they went back and edited it to make hiding Mike Katz's shirt more of a big deal than it was.

    I just want to know in what room were a bunch of guys sitting around thinking, yeah, this is a great idea!
