    A friend of mine was supposedly this big a while back. He went through some health issues (some kind of genetic heart condition, then he was diagnosed with diabetes) and is down to ~215-220 right now, and still looks huge to me. I just wanna see how big he actually was.

    if he was diagnosed with diabeetus and heart issues @ 5'8 275lbs, I'm assuming he wasn't jacked.

    No, apparently he was jacked. He definitely is at 220lbs. The heart issue is genetic, his mother has it as well, I guess it just started to become serious.

    He's the shorter dude with goofy hair in this video. If he had his shirt off you would really be able to see, but you can still tell from the legs.

    I've known him less than a year. When I met him he was maybe 10-15lbs bigger, and he'd been in and out of the hospital for a few months. The friend who introduced us told me ~ a year before that he was at his peak, ~275. And yeah, I know that ain't natural.

    well, theres a difference between being not natural and being a lean 275 @ 5'8.... we're talking GH, slin, and gallons of gear. You just gotta know how unlikely it is that he was that big and lean; especially because of the diabetes. He might have been 275, but he certainly wasn't very lean. Don't get second hand information like that - straight up ask him.

    He wasn't diagnosed with diabetes until after he was hospitalized over the heart thing. Not sure how lean he was but he told me at the time he ran almost 30 miles a week plus he was training fighters and said he used to be able to gas out most of his guys easily. I also don't know the specifics about his supplementation, but I know he's very knowledgeable...a lot of guys around here come to him for advice on such matters. It may be unlikely, but with this particular individual I'd say its certainly plausible.

    I'm sure he does, I haven't asked to see 'em:dunno:

    I spoke to him about it once, he was in a shitty mood and venting, and he told me he used to be "alot bigger." Right around this time he got sick obviously, lost his business, had pretty serious girl drama, etc...it was a tough time in his life and I don't think he really likes to talk about it.

    I asked a friend that knew him back then how big he actually was, and he's the one who told me 275...I was just curious what that might look like:dunno:

    I just find it hard to believe that a guy doing that much cardio and fighting would voluntarily be 275. He would be at a huge reach disadvantage at the very least.
