    A friend of mine Brian Bell made the jump from strongman (finished 9 in wsm if I remember right) to bodybuilding a couple years back and did OK. Got in good nick. His health has deteriorated badly the past couple years and it's sad to see. Such a monster back in the day.

    Wear and tear from years of balls to the wall heavy training. He also took a stroke a while back and smashed his knee on the way down. Struggles to get around now. Always looked up to him and was lucky enough to get to know him through work a few years back. Brian is a gentleman

    Yeah he was never a very good strongman...put it this way I out lifted him on most things even at his strongest haha.
    His good buddy was a pro strongman so he followed in his foot steps.
    When his buddy had a heart "issue" at age 28 he stopped lifted and this dude came over to me for guidance.

    1 year later the end result!
    In the red trunks!
    He was beat out by guy in middle (he's also a DECON client!).
    He is also going to get a special award that ADJOS's (RIP great member on promuscle) brother is giving to the most inspiration athlete of the day to.

    Oh and just for fun seeing that people think body weight is such a big deal!
    How heavy is the guy in the middle keeping in mind he is 6ft tall?

    Well no about 89kg but still considering how big he looks at 6ft.
    It goes to show the point of people going "ah hes only 200lb in shape that is fucking tiny".

    Your man looks big for under 90kg at 6ft.
    Any back conditioning pics?
