People tell me I'm a tall, handsome, fit guy. Giant 6'11"-7'
(2.13m) Greg Clausen is a superhandsome, supertall supergiant bodybuilder!
I'm a welcome mat next to him! I wish I looked like his "before"
photo (see below). Greg was a pro basketball player and now he has
taken up bodybuilding in a literally big way. He's about 270
pounds (122 kg). It's so hard to gain muscle when you are tall. It
takes a lot of food and even more toilet paper. Greg, along with
Conan Stevens, is just about the biggest muscleguy on my site. And
he did it in less than two years. He doesn't have as much bulk as
as much shorter bodybuilders who weigh less but that hasn't stopped him
from winning contests has it?
Born in 1979 Greg fell in love with
working out at Marquette University. As he explains on his
Facebook page "I played professional basketball for about 7 years, both
in the US and Internationally. After graduating Marquette University, I
played in Den Haag, Holland. I had a brief stint in Brussels, Belgium
then I came back to the US for a few years and did the minor league
circuit (ABA, CBA, NBA D-League). After an itch to travel again, I took
a hoops job in Napier, New Zealand. This lead me to Woolongong,
Australia after my season for a short contract. Once my skills were more
refined, I was ready to take another shot at the NBA. I was drafted by
the L.A. Clippers NBA D-League team based in Anaheim, CA. I finished up
the year in Albuquerque, NM with the Phoenix Suns D-League team. 2007
was my last year playing professional basketball, as I ruptured 5
vertebrae's in my lower back. Basketball was now unfortunately done for
me. But I gave it my all and in 7 years of making money at a game I
loved, I was able to have lived in 13 different countries! What an
Now in the summer months I teach basketball clinics
to children, and I am a coach with HSB Camps. Check them out too! www.hsbcamps.com
