Lemmon asks: Who was the first person to tell you
getting into bodybuilding was a crazy idea?
Eddie Robinson replies: Really, It was the opposite.
People were telling me that I should get into bodybuilding.
Lemmon asks: In my opinion, you are sort of the
Dorian Yates of your era. What directed your attention
to the industry itself as a profession and how did you
originally see your part in it?
Eddie Robinson replies: Back in 89 Lee Haney
was the man to beat. The big guys then were tipping
the scale at 245 on the high end. today's body builder
is well over 245 on stage these days. What really Directed
me into this profession was the love I have for lifting
and being able to make a good living at it.
Lemmon asks: Your 5 favorite websites are:
Eddie Robinson replies: I really don't have any
favorite web sites, and really only get online to answer
my fans questions in my members section of my website.
Lemmon asks: Got a secret you want to share? Tell
us something nobody knows but only because they haven't
Eddie Robinson replies: I have tattoos all over
my private parts.
Lemmon asks: I think an honest biography from a
real bodybuilder would be a hot item. What's your craziest
experience while just out looking for a good time in
the sport or maybe witnessed happen but didn't participate
Eddie Robinson replies: I really never have been
able to look for a good time being married, However
I always enjoy the nude photos my female fans send to
my P.O. box.
Lemmon asks: Laughs. Anything embarrassing ever
happen when you were trying to look cool? What?
Eddie Robinson replies: I never really had anything
happen that was embarrassing trying to be cool, However
I remember walking out on stage in the Olympia with
my left nut hanging out of my trunks. I guess that was
about the only thing that was embarrassing.
Lemmon asks: Your biggest lie ever is:
Eddie Robinson replies: I didn't eat it!
Lemmon asks: What's the grossest thing you ever
ate? Was it because some one said "Hey, taste this!"
Did you get even?
Eddie Robinson replies: The grossest thing that
I have ever eaten was a jar of Mayo. I was getting ready
for a show and on the last week I was craving a cheat,
since the only thing I had in the house at that time
was a jar of Mayo, and I ate the whole thing. Wasn't
gross then but sure the hell is now.
Lemmon asks: What's the hardest and yet easiest
part of getting into the sport?
Eddie Robinson replies: The hardest is getting
you pro card, and the pressure to stay at the top of
the game, yet the easiest is getting that big check
for smiling for the camera.
Lemmon asks: Ellington Darden claimed you made a
lot of progress and built most of your back using an
Arthur Jones workout. Is this true? What do you think
of Jones and Nautilus?
Eddie Robinson replies: Ellington Darden is Smoking
Crack. The training that I did with him and Nautilus
was a joke, let me Put it this way, I was training 3
days a week full body each day for one hour, What do
you think? However, I do have a lot of respect for Arthur
Jones and he does have a lot of great training theories.
Lemmon asks: I have been asked that 1000 times.
Is professional bodybuilding healthy? I guess that is
the answer right there. Thank you for the frankness.
Tell me, what is your most frequently asked question
and what question makes you crazy, but you somehow manage
to remain composed when asked?
Eddie Robinson replies: is the sport healthy?
Used to be! Most frequent asked question is if I do
muscle worshiping? I still don't know what the hell
that means, And yes it is driving me crazy, because
I have been offered Big $$$ for it? I think it is Gay
related. And no, I'm not gay!! However I would like
to know what muscle worshiping is? Is it when someone
looks at you and pounds their PUD? That's all I can
figure out, and if thats the case yes, I do muscle worship,
Go to www.eddierobinson.org and buy a photo! or enter
my members and get some full blown nude shots and worship,
worship, worship, Just don't tell me about it!
Lemmon asks: Is there a job or a gig that you were
offered but passed up in the past that we would find
Eddie Robinson replies: Playgirl had offered
me to do another spread but with full frontal pictorial.
I passed on that! My woman wants me to keep one thing
out of the publications & thats for her eyes ONLY!
Lemmon asks: How does it make you feel to see people
less talented or not in as good of shape as you are
handed something overnight? Does it give the wrong impression
to those on the outside looking in?
Eddie Robinson replies: that is something you
have to get used to in this sport. Politics play a big
role. And yes it gives those the wrong impression for
those who are looking in.

a bit embarrassing but you just don't care!

you are in that people tend to forget.... and something

ever be done because they only want to market freaks,
and if you are not willing to play the game they will
replace you in a drop of a hat for someone who will!
Lemmon asks: What was the best and worst part of
