Some of you may know him as the kid that turned into a monster, others simply refer to him as Lorenzo Becker. Lorenzo Becker was a French IFBB professional that entered a couple of contents. His most recent contest was at the Arnold Classic in Madrid of this year, where some official reports state that he did not place as well as he would of liked.
I believe due to his low placing at the Arnold Classic this year led Lorenzo Becker to quit competitive bodybuilding. Also, as evidenced on his social media account, Lorenzo Becker has been offline for a while now. His last post on his Facebook account was in early October, likewise with his Youtube account. Lorenzo Becker also mentions social media useless and worthless in his last Youtube video.
He also mentions how hard it was for him to get a sponsor, not one that just sends protein powder, but a real sponsor which sends monthly cheques. This is the sad reality of competitive bodybuilding, this is a sport with no money in it unless you are the top five athletes in the world. I remember Dorian Yates said in one of his recent interviews with London Real that if he didn’t get a top five finish at the 1990 Night of Champions, that he would quit competitive bodybuilding and just focus up on building up his gym and his brand. This is why I believe bodybuilding should be a hobby only, just do it for yourself and no one else.
Therefore, I believe the reasons Lorenzo Becker quit competitive bodybuilding can be summarized by these three points:
1 Lack of money in the sport
2. Getting into contest shape is difficult and hard on the body
3. Lack of interest in bodybuilding
