8 Great Famous Bodybuilding Bodies From 8 of Your Favorite Sports (Unisex)

I’ve talked enough about how to build strength (for now) and how to prepare for building ‘great’ strength, and hopefully you are on the path to becoming really strong. That was the first and most important part on how you can build real muscle mass. The kind of muscle mass that has backbone to it. The kind of muscle that will scare the socks off people who even dare to lay eyes on you, because something about your muscles seems different. And they are… different! This is the muscle mass that has strength behind it. And at this point you truly can be called the king of the gym. You might even find someone that is bigger than you in size, but guess who will probably win in a pull up contest? YOU!!

Besides, it never really is about how big you can get.. it’s all about building the best looking body. That is to build decent size muscles, but with superior definition.

That is why today, I am going to reveal some of the best bodies from 8 of the worlds favorite sports. We already know that all of us have completely different body types (Read this post) and I believe that each and everyone of you will have a similar body type to one of these famous 8. Body types that you can compare to your own. Maybe even to aspire to. You could even aspire to look like me 🙂 . However,  I’m not famous and not everyone knows who I am, so for now here are the famous 8.

MMA (Mixed Martial Arts)

George St. Pierre

Back in 2006, when UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) started to become popular, it was Kimbo Slice (MMA Fighter) that got me interested in this sport, even though it has been around for years. I think it was all of those brutal beat downs that I would see him give to indivuals on break.com or youtube.com. Now, I could have put Kimbo Slice here… if this was about brute fighting ability, but it is not, it’s about the best looking bodies in the sport, and for many of you, George St Pierres chisled frame is what you’ll probably strive for. This body type will probably attract the majority of ladies out there, but more importantly, YOU can be happy sporting this frame with confidence. This will be the frame that you will obtain if you are following the strength training route rather than building huge muscle mass.

Heavy Weight Boxing

David Haye

This is the guy that ‘nearly’ took down the 7ft giant Nikolay Valuev. Nevertheless, he still won the fight.

There will be many of you who workout with the goal of building a physique just like this. If so you probably started off as a hard gainer and have been sick and tired of being the skinny guy. Well, I have some good news for you Mr skinny man. Building a physique like this is highly attainalbe.

If this is your goal, then you will be one of many who fit the description of bullet point no. 3 in the stayfitbug.com logo. If so, then take your self over to shock body exercises. That will be the starting point on your quest to build monster sized muscle like Mr Haye.

David Beckham (The Model)

Most people around the world will know Mr. Becks as a footballer. However, he also has  a body good enough to take modelling shots that make girls around the world tremble to their knees. One great thing about being a footballer, is that Becks gets to build powerful footballer legs (It’s all in the thighs). That is something I need a bit more of in fact, since my ball kicking days stopped in the school playground.

Anyhow, this is the perfect body for those of you who just want to have a ‘fit’ body and aren’t necessarily focused or interested in building supreme strength or muscle mass, as Becks body is quite naturally proportioned.


John Cena/ The Rock (Professional Wrestlers)

Ok, I know I’m cheating here by picking two individuals, but I’m a fan of both of these body types in the WWE. The Rock just has that perfect ‘big man’ size, but is still able to wear the stuff that most guys can buy in high street shops. While John Cena has built supreme muscle mass on what I think was an almost skinny guy frame (Not too many before/ after pictures around).

Some may argue that these guys get to the size that they are because they are juiced up. That could be. But I also know that these guys workout out like animals in the gym, at an intensity you probably wouldn’t think imaginable.

But if you are after the look that these guys have achieved, then you are probably a natural mesomorph body type (Build muscle very easily). And out of the whole WWE cast, these are the bodies I’ve been most impressed with.


Asafa Powell (100 metre sprint runner)

Mr Powell has been around for quite a while in the world of athletics, and when you take a look at the starting line of every race, you just know you will see some overly defined, chisled bodies. Out of all the guys that ‘matter’ in this contest for golden glory, I’d say that Asafa Powell has the most well rounded physiqe. He has great bulk for a sprinter from head to toe and is well proportioned.

If your goal is to build an ‘Asafa Powell’ body, then I know that building raw strength is one the key things that you wish to achieve, as these athletes are all about explosive energy. Develop explosive energy and you will build a body just like this.


Denis Sergovskiy

Denis  Sergovskiy is an IFBB Pro Bodybuilder. He isn’t really that famous, but he did rise up the ranks in 2008 when he received his Pro Card. The reason I have chosen him as one of the best bodies, is because he fits the description of a super hero body… oh, so well.

  • Tiny waist
  • Very defined and symmetrical muscles
  • And the muscle mass to go with it

It’s not often that you find bodybuilders with as many strong attritubes that this guy has. Most just get a few things right. If you are after a body like this, then I would guess you are preaparing to enter some bodybuilding competitions. If so, then this is a body you can use as your goal and map.

The Women

Now, unless you have been living under a rock for the past decade, you would have noticed the rise in the number of women taking up bodybuilding. But it’s not exactly the kind that you may think. (Huge muscly women who could pass for men on most occasions).

Now, I don’t know of many ‘famous’ women who have taken up bodybuilding, but I do know of some around the web and in the media. Here are 3 bodies that I consider ‘good’ women bodybuilder bodies.


Ariel Khadr – IFBB Pro

Bodyrock.tv (Susana)

For all of the ladies reading this article, this was dedicated to you. These are the bodies that I know you will probably like to have. If I am right in thinking that, then get up now and go and build your body. You can and will achieve it. If these ladies can do it, you have no reason not to have the same or better. If you want a kick start then be sure to dig through the archives here on the site. There are plenty of articles that will put you on the right track.

All of the bodies chosen here are all hand picked by yours truly,. Some of you may agree with them, some of you may not. If so feel free to air out your thoughts in the comments section below. Either way, all of you will find at least one body type to aspire to out of all those sporting bodies.
