I do know that for the first movie, Terrance Howard and Downey would do bench-offs@225 though Downey was much smaller.

And, pathetically, Gwenyth Paltrow followed Tracy Anderson and her 3 lb dumbbell, 800 calorie diet nonsense in order to prepare. But, she's a girl...and you know girls can't lift heavy $h*t...

Which is why ScarletJo would kill Tracy Anderson quickly before abusing me...

"Or else they will get too bulky"...one of my friends said that to me and I didn't know what I wanted to do more, kill myself or her. I told her if it was that easy everyone would be big. She had no response

Did we not read the same article? I didn't see anything even remotely CF-esque mentioned.
