6'4" Black bodybuilder Quincy Taylor is
among the biggest of the big boys. His off season weight, when he is bulking up
for a contest, is around 350 pounds! Only a tall man can carry that much weight
without looking like a fire hydrant. Quincy's interest in sports started in school.
He started working out at age 12 using cement dumbbells. He played All American
Football as a high school freshman. He also wrestled, ran track and threw the shot
put and discus. He was so strong that at 16 years of age he was bench pressing 425
lbs.! He graduated from high school at 16 and, because of his experience with
Judo and Jujitsu he was invited to a Japanese tournament. He stayed in Japan for
a year and worked in a "jarhead" bar full of Marines and Japanese girls.
He was so large nobody knew he was only 16 years old, and he was the bouncer!
P.S. drunken Marines fight a lot. By the time he was finally old enough to be in
a bar legally he had moved to Los Angeles and saw his first bodybuilding show. It
blew him away and he knew this is what he wanted to do. Within a year he had
won his first bodybuilding contest. Since then he has won many bodybuilding contests,
gotten movie and commercial work, and obtained sponsorship from supplement companies.
He currently lives in Dallas, TX with his wife and children.Unfortunately Quincy's
home page is busted! I have kept the link below but as of May 2008 it takes
fans to an "under construction" site. Oh come on Quincy you're dropping
the ball here! If I was not so busy working on three feature films and a history
channel thing I would build a site for him.
