    no serioulsy. i nkow it sounds stupid but why? i mean im on their site and everyone looks fat.

    also how does one create his or her own west side routine? what mindset or foundation must one follow?

    If you are talking about their abs, I believe it's called a distended stomach PARTLY (ONLY PARTLY) due to the form / technique used when powerlifting. If you notice... many of them actually ARE ripped... except for their bulging stomach.

    Maybe because you're only looking at pictures of the ones in the 308 or higher weight class?

    There are 165lb PLers that are shredded, hell there are 242's and higher that are ripped too.

    I've seen that guy before, but didn't realize he was that light.

    He must be like 5' tall to have that build and only weigh 148.

    pretty much all the powerlifters that are trying to meet a weight class look real good, hell i want to try competing at the under 150's at some point.

    I think thats the real reason why they took the picture from the ground, so he would look as tall as the guy in the background. :mamoru::o
