    Damn, he looks way better in the first pic. Obviously not as much muscle, but he has a tight waist, full muscle bellies and great lines.

    Don't get me wrong I think he looks damn good in both pics.

    he looked more 'normal' earlier, but it takes a freak to win competitions.

    slin, igf-1, and all the other research garbage out there now. Over eating is another. Impromper training is a big issue as well. The guys with the nicest flowing builds dont lift like branch or coleman, they also dont have huge guts or whacky body parts.

    IGF gut is the real deal,which to some extent can also be "gh gut" since GH helps to promote IGF lvls, but there are igf receptors in the small intestine as well as the skeletal muscle tissue, IGF receptors are finicky little bastards that are quickly saturated with IGF, so the the rest of the igf that is circulating is absorbed by the small intestine. But some individuals are far more susceptible to this than others and other than the generic "genetics" answer, no one knows who will have the expanding gut and who wont, Id just assume to be sane with the dosages and keep them at or under 60mcg per 24 hr period.

    Exactly how i use it with my guys, 60mcg only(usually) And i have seen first hand some people get instant gut while others took alot longer to show minimal signs and some nothing at all. Insulin thrown into the mix causes some real issues in the sensative people. More do to visceral fat added in since they like to carb the shit out of themselves after a workout.
