    their stomachs have expanded alot from all the food they force in there, that part alone takes training. and of course they have lbm cuz they are carrying around all that extra weight. and anyone taking any sport seriously will train for it and not just eat. they eat for more mass so they are harder to push and they gain lots of muscle so they can push. the whole point of it is to see which one is forced out of the circle so it would be retarded just to sit and eat and nothing else.
