GSP is inhaling/exhaling in that youtube picture, thats why his stomach appears so big. If any of us do that, our stomachs will appear larger than they really are.

Yeah iv heard that too but im not sure if i believe it. Isnt HGH for old people anyway??? Would GSP really improve much from it seeing as how he isnt old??

Lmao.. Buddy. What you are calling Liddels HGH belly is something totally different. Liddel had a "Beer Belly" lol. In his last fight with Rich Franklin you can even see it going away a bit since he actually trained really hard for that fight.

Thats not true. I always notice his protruding stomach in his fights too.

If you watch the video you notice GSP has a protruding belly the whole time. And this video isnt the first time i noticed that anyway.

GSP's had that belly for a long time. I personally do lean towards the thought that he has at some point in time used HGH but he's tested clean so innocent till proven guilty, right? The man is a monster though, no doubt about that.

Question: his accent is a bit hard for me to understand at times, but did he say he was no longer lifting weights? Near the end when he was talking about having better range of motion.

Concerning his belly, I lean towards a slight lordosis (hollow-back) which makes it look like a protruding belly.



Same with Chuck Liddell:

Switching gears away from GSP's stomach... I couldn't get over his strength and flexibility at the start doing the hand stand push up and more impressively, the 360 degree turns on the ground with the Swiss ball between his legs. Damn! He is such a beast.

He's going to man handle Condit to the ground like a rag doll.

My stomach protrudes further than my chest... and no, I'm not fat. I've had lower back problems ever since wrestling in high school. Even now I have a 4 pack and it extends out pretty far. I've never done steroids.

RIP Jordan Corder. Watch over me from above brother.

You're right. HGH causes not just muscles to grow, but internal organs, too. Dangerous stuff - if your intestines grow, the walls get thinner and are more likely to rupture which can be fatal.
