Aesthetics are nice, but function is definitely number one: without functioning, weights are typically not very beneficial to any bodybuilder.I became acquainted to bodybuilding through watching wrestling matches. It follows that the first role model in the arena of bodybuilding in my case is the late world boxing heavyweight Mohammed Ali. Right now, I am not a fan of bodybuilding choosing stamina over the former due to the fact that stamina applies to daily situations as opposed to strength and body musculature.
I don't have a bodybuilding role model because I tend to compete against myself. I prefer a lean body rather than a bulky one. The kind of structure found in members of the disciplined forces who have lean bodies. This confers agility. I am also a naturalist by nature.
@cardinals27 - I think Kai is a little out there in space, but you cannot deny the amazing career feats that he has achieved...he is one of the most accomplished professional bodybuilders of all time and is definitely a role model to many...
I think Arnold is not really a role model, but rather an example of success. He has never been very talented at his work, yet through constant work and constant improvements, he got into a position where he isn't just one of the best athletes (former athletes in this case), but also one of the most known actors and POLITICIANS.
Arnold schwarzenegger & ronnie coleman They are my role model
