:)

P.S: The article doesn't mention it, but his arm is a genetic defect. It was this way since he was a child (watched a TV show that had a segment about him today).

Aw, man, that's not cool. I'm pretty sure he worked hard on growing his arm like that, don't make fun of his work like that dude. But I agree, he looks familiar.

lol im pretty sure hes got a birth defect, that arm doesn't look natural in the least, and ive seen some pretty strong skinny dudes. i wonder if he breaks pencils a lot, though. with an arm that size your muscle control is probably minimal at best.

The article is wrong. The guy's got a genetic defect, I watched a TV show about him today. The article gives the impression the arm got that way through training, but it was like that since he was a child. He also has been doing 500 repetitions everyday in a special weight machine his dad built for him for a few years, so it only potentialized the hypertrophy of the arm more than it already was.

Holy hell. I had to build strong forearms when I practiced martial arts because they act as your primary shield but THIS? Seriously.

Must be tough though.
