Backstage at the first contest he had entered in a long while Chris felt that his size gains might go unnoticed . . . at 420 lbs. of rippling blond muscle . . . not a chance dude. Chris was enormous. Pumping hundreds of pounds of ripped beef he was easily the biggest dude backstage. It was impossible not to notice him. But so it went.
Most of the guys seemed to work very hard either ignore or snub Chris. Walking by with there heads down or looking in any direction but his. Not speaking when he said hello or even acknowledging his presence. Not too friendly a group, Chris thought. Chris wasn't much for attitude in any form. He just wanted a spot to prep that's all.
Chris scanned the room and saw a open spot in a far corner of the room near a group of black bodybuilders. Some super heavy weight dudes. They black guys were laughing loud and joking with each other. They seemed to be having a genuinely great time. It seemed like a good place to be. They greeted him with smiles and nods and Chris dropped his gym bag and settled in to get suited up and get his "pump on".
One by one the black bodybuilders in the corner offered him either a spot or some oiling assistance, they insisted he take a spot at the mirror they were sharing and that he take a share in the weights and benches they were using. They questioned Chris on his supplement and workout regime or asked "how they might get whatever it was he got." Inquiring as to how he got hat "f'kin' big" and if he needed a training partner.
Most just complimented and teased him on his gaining "f'kin' insane" amounts of muscle mass and ripped beef . . . "for a white dude that is" they joked. They were all pretty huge dudes in their own right Chris thought, and he was surprised how much he enjoyed being the center of their attention . . . the only "white dude" backstage seemingly allowed into their clique . . . he really liked it. In fact he loved it. All the male comradery and attention, peppered with the ongoing compliments and seemingly preferential treatment these guys gave him was quickly becoming infectious . . . a real big ego boost . . . and more than that . . . a bit of a turn on . . .
