MARKUS RUHL - THE BEAST!
Back To Top

Markus Ruhl is one of the top IFBB professional bodybuilders around today. He is up there with Gunter Schlierkamp as being one of the most successful German bodybuilders on the pro ranks, recently coming fifth place (his best ever) at the 2004 Mr. Olympia Contest. Check out this guy's massive size:

As you can see, Markus' main strength is sheer size and conditioning. His chest is also among the biggest and most muscular in the history of bodybuilding. He has huge thighs and shoulders, and deep cut abs. His skeleton is huge, and as a result he looks best at a larger body weight (upwards of 280 pounds on stage or higher). With a frame that big it is very difficult (maybe even impossible) for Markus to be competitive at a lighter body weight - he just has a big frame to fill out and needs to do it to consistently place in the money at contests.

Check out his recent contest history:

Markus Ruhl - Recent Competitive History
2002 Mr. Olympia 8th
2003 Arnold Classic 3rd
2003 Maximum Pro Invitational 2nd
2004 Arnold Classic 5th
2004 Grand Prix Australia 3rd
2004 Mr. Olympia 5th
2004 Grand Prix England 4th
2004 Grand Prix Holland 5th


There are essentially two different types of physiques which athletes can present in bodybuilding today - the first kind is the classic look, with aesthetic lines, and great shape & symmetry. When you think about this look, think of Flex Wheeler - each time he hits a pose it could create a perfectly captured photograph - everything is in place and is put together well with balance and flow and no missing body parts. At the same time, while there is nothing missing, there is nothing which stands out in the classical look in many cases. Compare that to the modern physique - Markus Ruhl. His lines and symmetry may not be those belonging on Flex Wheeler, but he is massive and freaky to look at. People will pay to see big, ripped freaks like Markus on stage because of the awe factor - it is exactly the same feeling as one would get going to see a freak show because that is exactly what Markus Ruhl is - is freak of size and condition! Big and shredded and dominating in his appearance. Especially in certain poses - like the relaxed post or most muscular (where he neck seems to literally disappear because of all the muscle he possesses).

Here is another picture which I think says it all:

As I mentioned, Markus' best ever condition was at the 2004 Mr. Olympia Contest:

Although he came fifth, Markus Ruhl mentioned in his latest workout video (Made in Germany), that he knows he will never be Mr. Olympia.

But who knows what the future holds. Markus is an extremely hard working and dedicated athlete and entirely knows what sacrifice means when it comes to achieving his bodybuilding goals. If he makes it a mission to become Mr. Olympia, he may very well do that one day in the future.

Take care,

Take care,
