    Default Karelin would give Schwarzenegger a run for his money

    I think Karelin could beat Schwarzenegger in bodybuilding if Karelin pursued it.

    Schwarzenegger was only like 230. Karelin was much bigger.

    No chance. Bodybuilding isnt all about size it is about much more. Scott could tell us more. Either way Arnold was unbeatable in the old days and I think he would have been nearly unbeatable today if he were in his prime.

    Although I'd imagine Karelin wasn't pumping as many 'roids as Arnold did when he was winning everything in sight.. It's impossible to really know how ripped Karelin would have been had he trained solely for his body's appearance rather than for wrestling and juiced.

    True but everything I know about roids is they make you bloat so you wouldnt take them right up until the comp there is a cutting period. Also dont forget everybody else was doing the same thing and those guys didnt have a chance against him. I am not saying Karelin could not have been ripped but I doubt he could have been as proportional and as well defined as Arnold.

    Come on, Karelin was a natural bodybuilder. He was very proportional, had better genetics than Arnold and was naturally 7-10% body fat. Just look at the link I posted.

    Oh c'mon, who would want an Ahnold, over a Karelin in their primes. Karelin is a natural. Even Ahnold admits he was a skimpy dork before he started working it.



    If Karelin had grown up an American, he never would have had the career he did. He would have been gobbled up into football. I do think he would have been the best defensive end or inside linebacker we've ever saw, if he had played the game.

    Ahnold couldn't succeeded in either sport.
    Life's not the breaths you take, the breathing in and out that gets you through the day ain't what it's all about. It's the moments that take your breath away.

    Arnold will be 61 this month.
