  • Victor Richards

    My buddy that I'm working out with has been around the bb'ing scene around here since the 80's. He's met and mingled with alot of the great bb'ers from the East coast, as well as from everywhere else. He was involved with alot of the original big supp stores here during the supplement boom and was very active in the hardcore gyms in this area in the 90's. He was telling me today that he met Victor Richards once and that he was the biggest guy he'd ever seen. I knew Richards was known as maybe the original mass monster, but what I didn't know was that at 5'10" tall he would sit at 370lbs in the offseason.....given the fact that he only competed a handful of times, that's just an incredible amount of mass to hold at any height and for any length of time.....anyone ever see this monster or meet him, and if so, what was your impression of him?

          Anyone has any offseason pics of him ?

          The ones I found on google showed him a bit soft/water retention but the man still had visible striations, impressive vascularity and Coleman like size.

          The scale doesn't show a number. When he steps on it, it simply reads: Big Mother Fucker. - Skip

            I saw him a bunch of times....he was probably around 300-315lbs. He was pretty vascular and had great shape (no gh gut). Very sergio olivia-esque.

            I've also seen Coleman, yates, nasser and Cutler up close....Coleman was stupid big, biggest guy I've seen. Cutler was probably the widest....Richards and dillet were smaller thru the waist hips than the rest.yates worked out at my gym for a few weeks....He looked like a white gorilla.
