Nadia Lemmon asks: In my opinion, you are sort of the Dorian Yates of your era. What directed your attention to the industry itself as a profession and how did you originally see your part in it?
Eddie Robinson replies: Back in 89 Lee Haney was the man to beat. The big guys then were tipping the scale at 245 on the high end. today's body builder is well over 245 on stage these days. What really Directed me into this profession was the love I have for lifting and being able to make a good living at it.

Nadia Lemmon asks: Your biggest lie ever is:
Eddie Robinson replies: I didn't eat it!

Nadia Lemmon asks: What's the grossest thing you ever ate? Was it because some one said "Hey, taste this!" Did you get even?
Eddie Robinson replies: The grossest thing that I have ever eaten was a jar of Mayo. I was getting ready for a show and on the last week I was craving a cheat, since the only thing I had in the house at that time was a jar of Mayo, and I ate the whole thing. Wasn't gross then but sure the hell is now.

Nadia Lemmon asks: What's the hardest and yet easiest part of getting into the sport?
Eddie Robinson replies: The hardest is getting you pro card, and the pressure to stay at the top of the game, yet the easiest is getting that big check for smiling for the camera.

Nadia Lemmon asks: Ellington Darden claimed you made a lot of progress and built most of your back using an Arthur Jones workout. Is this true? What do you think of Jones and Nautilus?
Eddie Robinson replies: Ellington Darden is Smoking Crack. The training that I did with him and Nautilus was a joke, let me Put it this way, I was training 3 days a week full body each day for one hour, What do you think? However, I do have a lot of respect for Arthur Jones and he does have a lot of great training theories.

Nadia Lemmon asks: I have been asked that 1000 times. Is professional bodybuilding healthy? I guess that is the answer right there. Thank you for the frankness. Tell me, what is your most frequently asked question and what question makes you crazy, but you somehow manage to remain composed when asked?
Eddie Robinson replies: is the sport healthy? Used to be! Most frequent asked question is if I do muscle worshiping? I still don't know what the hell that means, And yes it is driving me crazy, because I have been offered Big $$$ for it? I think it is Gay related. And no, I'm not gay!! However I would like to know what muscle worshiping is? Is it when someone looks at you and pounds their PUD?

Nadia Lemmon asks: How does it make you feel to see people less talented or not in as good of shape as you are handed something overnight? Does it give the wrong impression to those on the outside looking in?
