There’s a major contrast between the easy-going gym goer and the serious muscle head. A regular person hits the exercise gym a couple of times each week, and he will turn out to be pretty much content with his build sooner or later.

In any case, these serious bodybuilders drive themselves to their total breaking points in light of the fact that their body is their profession. So clearly, some of them have become incredibly huge and don’t plan to stop at any point in the near future. Here’s a rundown of the top five biggest pro weightlifters in the bodybuilding world today.

5. Dorian Yates

From that point forward, he’s won the Mr. Olympia title 6 times, positioning only behind Ronnie Coleman and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who won the competition 8 and 7 times. Tipping the scales at an unimaginable 290 pounds (132 kg), he won a sum of twenty honours in various classes from 1985 to 1997.

Green was at first acquainted with working out in view of his troublesome conduct in school and quick physical advancement in his initial adolescents.

From that point forward, he’s contended in the National Physics Committee and won the 1999 NPC Team Universe, after which he took a five-year break from rivalries just to re-emerge in 2004 and win this competition again. His claimed offseason weight is 300-320 lbs while he tones it down to 260-270 when he’s contending.

His weight when competing is an incredible 280 lbs, and he is known to have incredible strength as he had the capacity to bench in excess of 600 pounds.

2. Gunter Schlierkamp

This 45-year-old beast of a weight lifter is nicknamed “The German Giant,” and all things considered he has earned this nickname.

Amid competitions, he’s been known to weigh in at an astonishing 300 lbs and has in excess of 40 titles added to his repertoire. Although he no longer competes, he really was a seriously impressive bodybuilder in his day and truly deserves the number 2 spot on our list.

1. Ronnie Coleman

Coleman is undoubtedly the largest, most jacked individual on the planet. There have been bits of gossip (and even recordings) of him bench pressing in excess of 800 pounds and lifting 180-pound dumbbells.

Right now, he holds the world record for winning the most Mr. Olympia competitions ever, a spectacular 8 times. Tragically, he’s resigned now, yet one thing’s without a doubt – he set some seriously strong records, these records should look like they’ll be held by him for a long time as he really dominated the bodybuilding world. However, the youth of today that see him as an idol will have to work seriously hard to ever come close to being in the same league as Ronnie Coleman.
