Flex - *AFP Hall Of Fame*

This family was split between gym and tan and hadn’t even considered laundry.

    As the top of the trophy suggests, the more steroids you do the smaller it gets.

  6. Petal says:

    The girl needs to work out more in order to stay a member of the family.

      Wow! Totally just wondered on to this site from a post on a friends Facebook site and low and
      Behold I see randy crain! (i thought) txtd pic to my daddy and we all thought it had to be randy (you?)
      Then we saw in comments that it was the crain family. Funny how things in life work out. Not sure which of the rdc’s this is, but if its the one I remember from Wyoming growing up, give Christie a hug and thanks for introducing me to tofu dogs and corn nuts 🙂

    The biggest guy (in the tan shorts) is a world famous powerlifter named Rickey Dale Crain. He broke all sorts of world records in the squat and deadlift back in the 70s and 80s. He’s a deeply committed Christian and has a company called Crain’s Muscle World. I subscribe to his weekly newsletter!

    What’s really awkward is that I’m the only one on here that knew that.

      I thought I had already posted this comment so I’m sorry if it posts twice!
      I’m Gayla (girl in the pic, ha ha) and you’re very correct in your comment. Even though we held a multitude of national and world records in powerlifting, our father, Donald Crain, (in pic) always taught us that our FAITH came before our lifting. Our father passed away 10 years ago. You could say that he is the one who began the powerlifting legacy in the Crain family and it still lives on today. My 2 brothers in the picture, Rickey and Randy, are still EXTREME lifters and in incredible physical shape.
      Thank you for your comment! 🙂

    I see the guy on the far left as a “buff” Charles Bronson look alike.

  11. plainbelliedsneetch says:

    It’s like the He-Man figures I buried in the sandbox have come to life.

  12. o.O.o says:

    Those short-shorts are so tight that they are making their muscles bulge out! Seriously, how could they even get their thighs through the leg holes?

  13. DDC says:

    It’s obvious. The girl won the trophy for power-lifting. The guys, her brothers, husband, cousins or some other familial combination.

    “One of these things is not like the others. One of these things just doesn’t belong. Can you tell which thing is not like the others by the time I finish my song?”

    The Trophy!

    That’s right, kids! The trophy definitely DOESN’T belong.
