That really was all over the place...

Also, are they sure they didn't confuse bodybuilding competitions with tryouts for an Aussie "Men of La Bare" style club?

Rusty Jeffers is aka Colt (as in, in his case, gay-for-pay Colt) model "Carl Hardwick," and whenever I've... um... seen him in Colt spreads he has the hottest chest-tummy pelt. I don't know what's weirder- him moonlighting as a gay porn icon (one who only ever works solo, mind) or that he has to shave his gorgeously perfect chest hair off for his "real" persona.

merciful heavens, ethnomethodologist! I'm surprised his bodybuilding gigs aren't protested by PETA, for that is surely fur murder.

...the fuck was that? I couldn't tell if it was a bodybuilding competition, or the gay version of So You Think You Can Dance.

I didn't even look at the other nine before favoriting this; robot guy is all I needed to make up my mind.

I don't understand why the very last one, the group posedown, is considered a WTF moment. Looks totally normal to me... is it because they used the stupid Paula Abdul song?

this is the best thing ever.

bodybuilding routines sure have changed. back in the day, i used to watch them on sunday mornings, just after wrestling. two hours of nature boy rick flair and his ilk, followed by a bunch of over-inflated posers.

...because that's what they used to do -- pose. they'd hold a pose for 5 seconds, then move to the next one. even that, to me, was almost too much....

...i am SO embarassed for these guys. lip syncing with lines from "the gladiator"? skeet-skeet-skeeting across the floor like a robot??? man.

WTF, indeed.

(but still worth a giggle, so thanks ambrosia voyeur!)

Steve Justa deserves an honorable mention in WTF even though he is not a bodybuilder, but a strength trainer.

I like this Steve Justa clip better!

Wow it's like a Richard Corben comic, just instead of killing aliens and wizards, they all just did a lot of coke and ecstasy and had a boombox.

These are bodybuilder routines, not bodybuilding routines.
