he wasnt real big but one that always impressed me was mark wahlberg in the good vibrations video. My dad lifted and was a pretty big guy before he got cancer. He still inspires me to lift.

I wish I knew. I found it while reading an article over on the Strong Lifts 5x5 site. A few people there were asking but nobody knew.

Good motivational pic for the wall.

It might be, here is the larger version http://stronglifts.com/...cle-losing-fat/

Hard to tell, either way it's still pretty motivational. And if it is, very well might be a still life of an actual person.

i'd say hulk hogan, but i spent all my paper route money on a cheap weight set the day after i first saw pumping iron. cliched, sure. but i have a sneaking suspicion that movie has inspired one or two people to workout.

i do not know physique wise, but stats wise, definitely the numbers reggie bush put up in the '06 combine

6 feet
201 lbs.
4.33 second 40
40 and a half inch vertical
Standing broad jump 10 feet nine inches and
Benched 225x24 reps

i guess that maybe explains the heisman trophy

I hate to sound like a geek, but my inspiration was (and still is) comic books.

I'm a costume designer and seamstress, and even the most kickass costume is completely destroyed by a shitty physique.

Makes sense total sense. Gotta say every time I see your avatar, it makes me really want to find my Wolverine!

PS I love Storm as an inspirational physique. I also like Star Trek and understand what the phrase "there's no place like 127.0.0.1" means. :^P

This might sound odd, but it was some of the other guys at my high school that inspired me to lift.

I'd been a martial artist for years and felt pretty confident but the respect wasn't the same that was given to the guys who looked like they were strong, the football players etc.

I observed the world treated them differently and so I decided to start lifting.

A few short years later and I'm bigger than most of them ever were or will be.

I was also inspired by The Ultimate Warrior as a very young kid (5-8 yrs old.) I used to run around getting all pumped up, acting like him, and then flexing in the mirror. I recall thinking I had awesome "armpit" muscles as I called them back then, where my armpit met my lats, delts, and chest. And sometimes if I got really pumped and held my breath I could see a big vein across the upper portion of my chest. And then almost pass out. Oh, the funny things you do as a kid...
