The recent 43rd Asian Men Bodybuilding Championship saw this man with massive girth taking home the trophy. Malays have always been known by many to posses the natural mass and size, does giving them the edge over their non-Malays peers, when it comes to the sport of bodybuilding.
However I'm not sure if it's just a lack of interest by the non-Malays in Malaysia when it comes to bodybuilding, that has me browsing through photos after photos of many more Malays from all over the states in Malaysia. Pleased to say, these motivated and determined Malaysians do not disappoint when it comes to really working hard in the pump room for all their muscles worth.
Here's a photo of the Champion - Sazali Samad.

Just how much more gorgeous and beautiful can Korean muscle men really get?
Check out this next video taken recently in 2009, and you will just about cream in your pants! Yes, ladies and men alike!
[TAM: apologies for not having the video here, as the original owner on youtube had the embedding disabled. will post the video here once I get around that limitation.]
Below is a video of him taken sometime back. Compare how much he has grown!
There's no stopping these breed of Asian men when determination and focus is at play. And you think the Japanese worked really hard at their physiques. Well, it seems in the past year or so, the Koreans have taken the lead.
They're not only massive in size and muscle bulges, but they're determined to prove to the world that Asians also have it in them when it comes to girth and proportions.
Who says Asian men ain't got the size, can look again.
And if you think these Korean muscle beauties are all about training and hard rock grit, then think again.
This next clip shows that it's in their blood to have fun, as they would, if they weren't this bulgingly muscular. But the fact that they can still joke and humour the crowd in front of a Live audience, with their muscular girth and mass, it only goes to show that while size is everything... muscles doesn't equate to slow or heavyness.
All you bodybuilding newbies and would-be bodybuilders, take a leaf out of our Korean muscles brothers, and s-t-r-e-t-c-h. Versatility and the ability to be flexible will ensure your poses go a long way.

Winning the Nationals 2009 is probably one of the best moment to go down in Singapore's bodybuilding history. After last year's much hyped scandal of the 80% of finalists who tested positive for steroids, it's good to finally see real muscle men in action. One who does not depend on roids to boost their male-induced egos.
And it helps that Wai Teik in person is as humble and friendly as he is charming and handsome.

Jang Byung Ho, hailed from Busan, hold the No. 1 heavyweight in Busan. He also hold the No.1 position as Mr. Korea heavyweight, not once, but twice. (1999 and 2000)
But this is only as claimed in his own website at http://jbh.bodybuilders.co.kr/
However on another website, www.musclememory.com stated that Jang Byung Ho was disqualified after winning the 2000 Asian Amateur Championships - IFBB and his No.1 position taken away from him.
Still, he deserves a worthy mention in the theasianmuscle.

Trailing world number one and overwhelming the crowd's favourite Woods by two strokes overnight, 37-year-old Yang, ranked 110th in the world, kept his composure in difficult, swirling winds at Hazeltine National to fire a two-under-par 70.
For the uninitiated, what it basically means is Yang is the first Asian, ever, to beat all time champs Tiger Woods.
And why are we talking about him, since this site isn't even about golf?
When interviewed, Yang further mentioned that his ambition is really to be a bodybuilder. However, that dream did not manifest, after he got into a serious injury which only meant staying away from the weights. However by a stroke of his clubs, he started hitting the range and the rest as they say is history.
Which brings me to highlight that koreans, whose interests are muscles and bodybuilding, tend to grow really massive and huge. Did I mention they are hard and taut too, around the mid-section? Nothing like our big, oversized, tyres-for-a-waist locals here, who have no self-discipline when it comes to their diet. Muscle building is more than just about hitting the weights. Diet also plays an important role in your quest to beef up.

I’ve been a loyal reader (not to mention a foolish buyer) of muscle magazines for as long as I can remember. And every time I would end up with stacks and piles of magazines; some dog-eared, most unread, all taking up precious space in the corner of my room. It didn’t help that most of these muscle mags contain pictures and photographs of all the top bodybuilders and muscles hunks in the bodybuilding scene. All except for one.
So with the advanced leap in technology and resources-laden information highway, I have since turned to the widely-popular and well-known bodybuilding websites that you could literally roll off your tongues. But sometimes, my search would be like searching for a needle in a haystack. Especially so when your keen interest in the niche category turns up a nil return.
It’s frustrating to live in a country so rich in its bodybuilding culture but yet have no readily available resources that one can happily thumbed through. Forget the library. Forget the resource corner. Even your friendly mamak (a slang for an Indian man) news stand does not have a single muscle mag pertaining to the asian muscles. So where does your asian bodybuilders go to practise their art?
For those lucky enough to meet a true professional bodybuilder-turned-coach, you will be taken under the former’s wings (pun intentional) and taught the basic until you are ready to be thrown into the spotlight armed only in your sexy skimpy trunks.
What then of the rest of us, novice amateurs, who share the same keen interest in the beautiful visuals of muscles and the bodybuilding lifestyle as our aspiring peers? Are we left only to gawk and gape from below the stage?
I’ve been sitting on this idea for a while.
It’s like a candy gum that I’ve been rolling in my mouth, playing with it, pushing it, using my tongue to smoothen the rough edges, yet not really doing anything to blow that gum.
I wasn’t sure if I would have the drive or the necessary motivation to get the idea going.
But here I am.
Over the years, I’ve made friends and known some more like-minded individuals, who themselves are either competing asian bodybuilders, or are into muscles and the beautiful art of bodybuilding. The main goal of this site is to unite information, and pictures, from all around the ASEAN region. With the hope that the creation of this blog site would benefit others, just like myself, who hoped to know more about the bodybuilding and muscles industry.
It’s time for us Asian Muscle Men, to unite our brains and brawns, and bring forth a revolutionary and as informative a bodybuilding+muscles platform that all our Asian Muscles brothers can benefit from.
