Vic Richards Bodybuilder
Richards Bodybuilding Interview
Q. Who are your role models?
A. My parents are my role model for giving me everything
necessary to be prepared for the many challenges that life has to bring.
Q. Is it true that you consume 30,000 calories a
A. First to clarify this statement: I have never said that
I consume 30,000 calories daily. My statement was taken out of context by a
major magazine's quack editor who wanted to make a name for himself by creating
a controversy. His original question was, "What is the most calories
you've ever consumed in a day?" I answered that I had once consumed close
to 30,000 calories when I ate Caribbean and African cuisine which can be
extremely high in calories. I have never claimed to eat 30,000 calories on a
This misinformation is just another reason why you should never believe
everything you read in the magazine. I actually consume anywhere from 8,000 to
12,000 calories a day depending on my training exertion for that
Q. Why don't you compete?
A. First, I believe that every human being should build
their physique the way they seem fit instead of structuring their physique to
suit the expectations of judges. I believe that some professional have met
untimely deaths through the unrealistic pursuit of perfection, trying to attain
the kind of physique expected from them by the bodybuilding judges. In the
other word, some bodybuilders had became trophy to the bodybuilding
establishment while in pursuit of trophy.
Q. What do you eat for breakfast and before working
A. I believe in doing my first workout in the morning on
an empty stomach because a hungry man is an angry man. Angers often helps fuels
my workout. After training I'll mix 16 ounces of unsweetened 100% apple sauce
with Rebel Nutrition Ionic Whey to feed my muscles. Then I'll take an hour
siesta or nap to let my food digest before tending to my other daily
Q. Who are your favorite bodybuilders?
A. Sergio Olivia, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bertil Fox, The
Barbarians David and Peter Paul, Mohammed Benaziza, Franco Columbu, Dave Jones,
and Lee Haney.
Q. How much is Big Vic weighing nowadays?
A. I'm around 370 pounds of solid beef at the moment, at
5' 10' tall.
Q. Why do most professional bodybuilders lie about how
much money they earn when we all know that they are the most under paid
athletes in the world?
A. You see! Some bodybuilders are insecure and delusional.
They would rather attack each other than challenge the established magazines
and promoters that have made them a laughing stock to the public. Most
professional bodybuilders are practically working for free as "slave
labor", jeopardizing their health and lives for their masters. So they
would rather lie to the public about their earnings than form a union for
better and more stable pay. Most have mastered the art of ass kissing into
order to win shows or earn peanuts.
Q. We all know Vic is the thickest and most massive
bodybuilder on Earth, and has shape, size and symmetry. So what about claims of
Greg Kovacs being the largest bodybuilders on earth?
A. I've met Greg Kovacs, and he seems like a nice polite
individual. I do not think Greg believes that he is the largest bodybuilder in
the world, even if magazines promote him that way. Greg Kovacs is 6'4"
tall and weighs 280 pounds in shape. Off season he towers at about 350 pounds,
with half of that weigh in his gut and hips. I am 5'10" tall and often
reach 320 pounds in shape, and 360 to 370 pounds off season. Do the math: 40
more in-shape pounds with 6 inches less height. My biceps and triceps dwarf
Greg's, my chest and pecs makes his look like a bird. Let's not even mention my
back, calves, hamstrings, and thighs. I am not arrogant but sincere. So when
Greg claims to be the "Largest Bodybuilder on Earth" he might be
claiming his guts and hips. You see-- the mice will play when the cat is
Q. Why wouldn't the bodybuilding establishment allow
bodybuilders to form a union? After all, the NFL, NBA, and NBL players have
A. This is a very good question with a simple answer. The
establishment rule is control, power and slavery. The IFBB and other
bodybuilding promoters find it beneficial and profitable to control
unorganized, mindless, insecure, robotic zombies that we have today in
bodybuilding. Bodybuilding unionization would help the professional
bodybuilders ask for more money, respect and dignity-- things that are lacking
among most competing professional bodybuilders today. So in order to make
bodybuilders work for free, the establishment must tap into their insecurity to
keep them down and feeling grateful for crumbs.
Q. How will history judge Joe Weider in regards to his
legacy and the sport of bodybuilding?
A. History will want to know if he shared his wealth with
those bodybuilder athletes that helped him in growing his massive publishing
and product empire. I think Joe Weider's legacy will be judged by the
subservient standard of living endured by all professional bodybuilders both
past and present.
Q. Why is bodybuilding not as popular as professional
A. Bodybuilding has the potential to become a bigger sport
than wrestling, or tennis, or golf, or most other sports, since most of those
athletes use some form of bodybuilding to condition themselves for their game.
Unfortunately the bodybuilding establishment is full of greed, selfishness, and
mismanagement. The sport of bodybuilding has suffered from individuals on the
highest level who thinks about their personal gains first instead of promoting
the sport of bodybuilding.
Q. Is there anything else you'd like to add?
