Dave Palumbo & Bob Cicherillo On The Verge of WAR! – IronMag Bodybuilding & Health Weblog


by Christian Duque

Legendary Lengthy Island Bodybuilder Dave Palumbo accused legendary Rochester bodybuilder Robert “Bob” Cicherillo of clickbait when the previous Mr. USA took the RxMuscle mogul to job over his latest video on the proposed Professional Males’s Physique peak and weight cutoffs. Apparently, Bob believed that Dave was calling for extra consideration to leg improvement, on condition that legs aren’t judged in a division the place board shorts cowl the complete leg but-for the calves.

Dave fired pictures over Chick’s talking when it comes to “we,” dismissing him as “simply the MC, and never truly being part of the IFBB Professional League or NPC management. This comment despatched shockwaves all through the health business as diehard Cicherillo followers are more likely to hold forth on Myspace and GetBig.

Key insiders consider that lots of RX’s geriatric fanbase will doubtless mobilize if Bob’s folks do the identical. This might be an all out struggle. That mentioned, let’s analyze the positions of those two luminaries within the iron sport and attempt to make some sense out of all of the heresy. Wait what? I meant rumour. Or did I actually imply heresy?

You be the choose!

Initially let’s speak concerning the studio set-ups as a result of in any case that’s extra necessary than what was truly mentioned.

I actually like all the images Bob has on his wall, however what’s up with having two instances of vitality drinks in shrink wrap on his information desk? Will he drink of any of them sooner or later? Is giving them away? Did he overlook to place them within the closet? The thriller will doubtless confound intellectuals for years to return.

After which you’ve gotten Dave. I like the IronMag Labs intro, however what’s up with all of the Species merchandise on the desk? He’s at all times performed this, however 4 containers looks like a bit a lot. In reality, Dave even knocked over a cup throughout his presentation. Fortunately the cup was bone dry, which begs the query of why was it on the desk to start with? Additionally the Artholyze container was blocking out Jimmy “The Iron Bull” Pelechia’s face within the photograph with Dave within the background. Is there a hidden which means right here? Does Jimmy want Artholyze? What may this imply? I’m positive this query might be analyzed intently on the wildly lively RxMuscle message boards.

Curiously, Dave performed many parts of Bob’s video, at instances asking if the 2006 Masters Mr. World “actually was that silly” and questioning if he was affected by senility.

Bob and Dave are each half-centenarians who look remarkably good for his or her age. In reality neither man has even a single grey hair. If that’s not ageing gracefully I don’t know what’s.

Dave lambasted Bob for criticizing him for drawing parallels between weight caps for Males’s and Girls’s Physique. Palumbo rightly identified that WPD is full-body judging standards whereas MPD judges solely half the torso. Jumbo Palumbo was beside himself as he tried his hardest to keep up his composure when addressing Cicherillo’s “flip flopping.” On account of the joy Dave knocked over an empty cup and even the towering Artholyze that blocked out Jimmy’s image was seen shaking ever so barely. If Dave had gotten any extra labored up, he prolly would’ve knocked over the entire card desk. That’s how anabolic Dave is. Fortunately he was in a position to hold that bottled up rage contained.

Palumbo was additionally baffled by the truth that Bob used his identify within the title of his video, however seemingly didn’t speak about him sufficient. The previous On-line Editor of Muscular Growth thought that the previous co-host of Professional Bodybuilding Weekly was utilizing his identify for hits. That’s fairly an accusation contemplating that he’s speaking about none aside from the Voice of Bodybuilding! And opposite to what many consider, together with Dave, Bob is a serious participant within the bodybuilding world. Whereas he could not have an official title, nobody with an official title has ever publicly refuted Bob’s quite a few assertions relative to the course of the game. His robust ties to Jake Wooden, Dan Solomon, and people in Pittsburgh, permits him an unimaginable quantity of affect. And let’s not overlook that Bob is the Athlete’s Rep. Each professional bodybuilder on the planet seems to Bob as their man. He wakes up within the morning – each day – excited about how he can enhance the lives of the boys he represents. He’s very a lot an iron messiah. That’s why this feud wants to attract to a detailed.

The feud between Dave and Bob has gone forwards and backwards for years. Did Bob take pleasure in seeing Dave get kicked out of Nationals some years in the past? You realize he did. Did Bob e-mail the Joe Rogan present? I don’t suppose so, however did Dave run Chick’s identify via the mud? I’ll allow you to determine. It goes forwards and backwards. Whether or not it was PBW vs NBR, whether or not it was MD vs RX, or simply as a result of it’s raining exterior, these guys will rumble. These two anabolic wizards have at all times had points. These guys would battle simply to cross the time. I believe what they should do is attempt to get alongside. And if all else fails, POSE DOWN!

Who wouldn’t wish to see Dave and Bob settle their feud pose by pose on YouTube? With all this speak of the Masters Olympia, a Jay Cutler comeback, and the stunning information Liver King wasn’t actually natty, I believe {that a} pose-down between these two giants could be simply what the followers want in 2023. In the event that they did battle it out bodybuilding fashion, who do you’ve gotten rising victorious?

In all honesty, I believe Bob might be slightly bit extra responsible right here. And because of all of the hits he’s going to get from utilizing Dave’s identify within the title of his video, I believe the Chickster ought to do the best factor. Bob ought to share within the income his video will make as a result of in any case if he didn’t resort to clickbait he most likely wouldn’t get the identical variety of hits as if he was speaking to himself along with his two shrink wrapped instances of vitality drinks on his desk. I believe that Bob ought to cut up the proceeds of the video 50/50 with Dave so I hope that when it’s all mentioned and performed and all the cash has been gathered that Cicherillo will lower Dave a examine for his seventy-five cents.

I hope you loved studying this very in-depth article on this very critical difficulty. I couldn’t assist however write this Pulitzer Prize worthy piece. I’ll ceaselessly keep in mind the place I used to be throughout this showdown between two such necessary males within the sport of bodybuilding nor will you. I solely hope that the plenty don’t get too labored up. I’d hate to examine Palumbo and Cicherillo followers duking it out within the day room of an assisted residing facility. There’s no cause to take your enamel out and brawl. Let’s give attention to maintaining the peace, and having fun with bodybuilding.
