michael sidorychev double biceps Huge 6'2" (1.87m) Russian bodybuilder Michael Sidorychev is also a strongman and arm wrestler. Russia is the world's largest country.  So it is a good thing he lives there as he is way too big to fit in small nations like Lichtenstein.  With so many skills he does a good job of promoting himself although many of the pages about him are in Russian. Dammit!  He was born in 1979 making him as old as the movie "Star Trek the Motion Picture." (I judge all events by what movie came out in the year they happened.)  He weighs an amazing 316 pounds (144kg)!  He works at the bizarrely named  Management of Federal Agency of the State Committee for Control Over the Illegal Trafficking of Narcotics and Psychotropic Substances in special purpose department. Whatever that means.  I imagine it helps to be really strong when you are arresting drug dealers who just might try anything.

I can tell he enjoys life and likes to clown for the camera.  Some bodybuilders are soooo serious they can't take good photos or even perform in contests well.  He is friends with another unbelievably strong man, Polish bodybuilder/powerlifter Mariusz Pudzianowski.

Michael chats with an interviewer and works out in this almost HOUR LONG video. Of course I don't speak Russian so I have no idea what is going on but Michael looks great the whole time. And there is a lot of him to look at.
