Mike Matarazzo

{Photo above by Rick Shaff}



"Lining up beside men like [Kevin] Levrone and Ronnie Coleman was as good as it gets. More than validation, it was a privilege."
"Do I miss being huge and powerful? You bet I do, on many levels."


Mike Matarazzo from Boston, Massachusetts suffered his first heart attack at 38. In Muscle Mag (August, 2008) Ron Harris conducts an interview with Mike covering his career in bodybuilding and his health problems, problems which Mike attributes to his steroid use. Read it, it's good. In his prime Mike packed some 250 lbs. on his 5'10" frame and had 23" arms. These pics accompanied the article. Photographer(s) unknown.


Mike has retired from bodybuilding and is a bail bondsman today.

Coming Tomorrow



Mike Matarazzo is one of my all time favorite bodybuilders. The man had style and personality, not to mention huge muscles. Tomorrow I will present you with new scans and information from an interview in MuscleMag magazine. Until then enjoy these pics from my collection.
{As these are not my scans I don't know the photographers.}

He Looks Familiar


OK, who is this? Binais Begovic comes to mind but I don't think so. Still, he looks familiar.

This is Joshua Bergeron. He is 5'8", 218 lbs. He placed 15th in the 2007 Junior Nationals.

Although he's flexing all over the video sites I only just learned of him. My loss.

Dan Decker - Triceps [2]



More pics of Dan's triceps in photos by Michael Neveux.
My favorite is the first picture. What a shame part of Dan was cropped, but it's a good photo and nicely shows off Dan's left arm.

Leftovers





Here are some scans I haven't been able to put in any sort of themed post, so my theme will be no theme. Hey, it's my blog. I really like this first pic of Ronnie Coleman by Chris Lund. Oh, to have an arm like his. And I like the composition of the photo. Second is an unknown fitness model photoed by Joaquin Palting; no complaints about him. Last but not least is the oh so vascular, cut, ripped, shredded Branch Warren in a photo by Per Bernal.
