The Size Game
Muscular Development is proud to feature this new column from IFBB pro- Luke Sandoe, the U.K.’s newest rising star. Luke has the type of thick, rugged density of other incredibly strong bodybuilders like Branch, Dorian and Ronnie, with pleasing shape and balance to go along with it. Many bodybuilding fans hold an extra level of appreciation for champions who are as strong as they look, and Luke fits that bill to a T.

What It Takes to Be Huge

Most of you reading this are aspiring to reach the extreme levels of mass of IFBB pro bodybuilders. Can you do it? This month I will run down what must be in place for that to happen.

How are most truly huge men able to become so big?

It’s kind of like asking Usain Bolt, how can you run so fast? He just can. Genetics go beyond what you’re already familiar with hearing about, as in bone structure, muscle belly lengths, and response to training, all of which are optimized in the biggest men. But one aspect I also like to talk about in terms of becoming huge is the tremendous amount of food you have to eat to support all those gains and to maintain that extreme amount of muscle mass.
