    Can anybody tell me what causes this?

    Whether it's abuse of steroids or something different.

    I've heard people talk about it before.
    Sometimes called a Turtle Shell or something.

    Do most bodybuilders have this?

    This is commonly referred to as "growth gut"...this is 100% attributable to HGH. Arnold, Sergio, Lou, none of the old school guys ever had any "gut" whatsoever. But, HGH is the reason guys are much bigger now than they were back then. I guess you have to give up something to get something else right? I personally hate it.

    Thats why I wont touch GH... I am genetically pre-disposed and my gut already has some distention... I don't want to increase it ANY more...

    So this isn't something attributed to all steroids, just HGH.

    That is good to know, I've seen this a lot with Pro Bodybuilders and wanted to find out what caused it.

    IMO it wouldn't be worth the size!

    Take a look at this pic and compare the two legends. Obviously Ronnie is bigger than Arnold. But, I believe, without the Hyperplasia that's possible with HGH, he couldn't have gotten that much bigger than Arnold. The difference in the ab region is frightening. The thigh region is astounding as well.

    I believe the overall look of Arnold is so much better.

    Like you said the ab region is a total difference between the two.

    Granted Ronnie is larger in size Arnold s tone is much better.

    I agree with you, Arnold's lookis much better. I would even argue that Ronnie is a bit leaner than arnold and more vascular, but this is also due to the lypolysis factor of HGH. Bodybuilding in the present day has become so much more focused on overall size versus shape. Arnold had the perfect shape. I would never want to look like Coleman, but I wouldn't mind looking like Arnold in his prime. His muscles are so well formed and shaped. Of course, a lot of that is genetics, but you know what I mean.

    Arnolds bi's are legendary, still bigger then colemans, don't get me wrong, coleman is a monster. Both are an inspiration.

    The major difference between the old school guys and the newer ones has got to be the thighs. Most of the newer guys have slightly bigger backs, traps, and chest than the old school guys, but the thigh aren't even close! Also, I would argue that the guys today are leaner than ever before. But, I still like the old look WAY more.

    There's nothing to argue about. Guys today are ABSOLUTELY leaner than they were 20-30 years ago. Coleman's body fat percentage on contest day was probably around 1% or less(not an exaggeration). Arnold was probably closer to 3-4%(still impressive, none the less). I also agree, about the appearance of the older guys. Physiques are no longer scored based on aesthetics. It's all about freaky size.

    Ya, the size thing has kida turned me off to BBing a little. If I could pick a set of bis and a chest to have, there's no doubt it would be Arnold. His perfectly rounded huge chest is so aesthetically pleasing that it's ridiculous. And the peak of those bis, just ridculous. Complete mancrush,'ll admit it;)

    I look at the pics of Arnold when he was at his peak and he looked amazing, Between the cost of Growth and the gut, i think i will stick to AAS! I was told by a friend at the gym that Growth will make your intestines grow, theres no doubt that guys are bigger today but I personally like the look of my chest overshadowing my stomach, imo.
