Mario started building his body at age 12; obviously, he was much smaller than he is today. If you want to see a teen-year photo...click here.
In this post, I'll only focus on what he looked like two years ago compared to how he looks now. Some of you might expect a 'huge' change in two years time, but the reality of body building is that an experienced lifter like Mario can only add on muscle mass at an incredibly slow rate compared to beginners. The rate of change is so incremental that it is hard to tell anything has happened if you don't keep a consistent record of your progress. Thankfully, Mario is not shy from the camera, so he has kept a nice photographic database of his change.
And in Mario's case, his change is surprisingly very noticeable!
Way way back in that yesteryear known as 2013, Mario was a weakling. He was embarrassingly scrawny. A puny wimp. A lightweight. A little gust of wind could knock him down. How pathetic!
Just look at how small his arms and torso are. What a loser!
