Welcome to The Iron Den
Where strength athletes share techniques for building muscle, burning fat and the proper use of anabolc steroids to help you meet your fitness goals.
...then you have come to the right place!
we will try to help you with your problem.
The pic of Phil Heath arms make me think of the bull on myostain blockers in the movie Bigger Faster Stronger Steroids in America. Can you get as big as Mr Olympia Phil Heath without steroids? The old Phil Heath steroids question.
I think I read that flex had some mutated gene or something and his body produced less myostatin, I dont know if that was bullshit its been so long ago when I read that, but I wonder if its true and if possible Phil has that same gene factor working in his favor, I have seen him up close and even as an amateur his physique was amazing.
He is a griffin monster,I would be happy with a quaternary of his mudcle
Balco put out a letter I think just posted on the internet that Flex Wheeler has a mutation in one of his myostatin genes and also an IGF-1 mutation. The myostatin mutation should result in a null allele or close to it. The IGF-1 mutation was suppose to somehow be fortuitous as well. Here is the letter.

Re: Flex Wheeler
To whom it may concern:
I am writing this letter per the request of Flex Wheeler.
I would first like to briefly provide you with some background information regarding BALCO Laboratories. BALCO has been working with elite Olympic and professional athletes for over fifteen years. BALCO has provided testing and consultation for over 250 NFL players including the entire 1998 Super Bowl Champion Denver Broncos team and the entire Miami Dolphins team. BALCO works with professional athletes in many sports including teenis (Michael Chang, Jim Courier, etc.), hockey, bodybuilding (10 of the 16 1998 Mr. Olympia contestants), track and field, soccer and basketball (Seattle SuperSonics).
BALCO Laboratories has been testing and monitoring Flex on a routine basis during the last year. We have performed tests including blood chemistry (SMAC), complete blood count (CBC), PSA, anabolic hormone levels, genotyping as well as comprehensive testing for nutritional elements. Flex's test results have been compared to twenty-four other professional bodybuilders and overall he has one of the healthiest profiles. Basically, Flex is in excellent health and has demonstrated the discipline necessary to maintain a peak level of conditioning.
Flex was a participant in a study we recently conducted in collaboration with the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Pittsburgh involving 62 men who made unusually large gains in muscle mass in response to strength training (extreme responders). Flex was one of only nine extreme responders that had the very rare "myostatin mutation." Myostatin is the gene that "limits muscle growth." Specifically, Flex had the rarest form of myostatin mutation at the "exon 2" position on the gene. This simply means Flex has a much larger number of muscle fibers compared to the other subjects or the normal population. We believe that these are the very first myostatin mutation findings in humans and the results of this landmark study have already been submitted for publication. Flex was also found to have a very unusual type of the IGF-1 gene. In fact, Flex was the only participant in the study that did not have a "match." All of the other extreme responders had at least three other subjects with a matching IGF-1 gene. Based upon Flex's very unique genetic profile, we plan to expeditiously publish a scientific paper that reveals his complete genotype in specific detail. The publication of his remarkable genetic data should generate an enormous amount of media exposure.
Hope this information will be helpful and please call if I can be of assistance.

Dude is crazy ass big
best arms ever no dout
alot of people actually compare him to the old Flex.... all i know is when phil is peeled.... i dont see anyone beatin him
If you follow him on Twitter you know that he does not work his biceps very ofter because they grow way to fast.. He hits them only once every few weeks.
He claims if he did work them out like any other body part he would be uneven...Thats scary.
Phil looks amazing hes taken it to another level now and when hes in top condition theres no one out there thats gonna beat him.
^^^ true ya he does not do arms very often!!!!
Sweet Jesus! Could you imagine having bi's like that with very little effort? While the rest of us mortals have to work like hell just to gain 1" a year.
Sculpted, no synthol. He is the new breed for sure.
The next step in human BB evolution... Demigod status
