Never really liked his physique, narrow shoulders and blocky waist, but I´ll never forget the first time I read he was a diabetic I was like fcuk me! How can a diabetic look like that! He did have it more difficult so kudos to him and what he achieved.
Is he doing ok?

Time used to live not that far from me.. I saw him a few times when I was a teenager.. He was just a freaky dude.. Just very thick and grainy.. Trained in fairly low volume and was cock strong..

I remember him too. That he was a diabetic, it's probably because of him that insulin found it's way into bb.

Glad he's still alive, I thought maybe something happened to him when I saw the thread title.

I remember him well from the mid-late 80's. The guy I would compare him most to today is Meadows. Fricken thick, grainy, muscle on top of muscle. The reason he didn't do well is because bodybuilding was like classical music...flowing harmony, artistic, aesthetic.... whereas Belknap was like scary, like comparing Beethoven to Motorhead. The ultimate ying/yang would be Bob Paris/Tim Belknap.

I remember reading a story in the late 80's about him and Haney rooming together. Haney said it used to drive him crazy that Tim would sing Italian opera in the shower every morning. Every day...like clock work.

Someone posted the same video about Tim Belknap last year...apparently he has kidney issues from AAS and being a Type 1 diabetic...cumulative trauma. He was a monster...I was always in awe when I looked at his photos!

Jeff King was a monster too! I remember him from when I first started buying the magazines...a long time ago! LOL!!

I believe he may have had some heart issues as well :(

As far as the other beliefs / inquiries that he ‘brought’ insulin into
the game, I personally don’t he did or even think he piqued any
interest as to its effects other than a necessity for a Type 1 diabetic,
but I could, as usual, be wrong. Just look at the timeline.

Anybody know when insulin became a large and accepted part of
bodybuilding? Names and dates would be interesting (no breaching
of confidence) as I have no clue.

Wow, he did have quite the physique! I've never heard of him. I was only buying M&F back in the late 80's. I guess that's probably why, Joe Weider's monopoly.

He did a guest pose right after his America win for us in my home town, Dude had the thickest neck I ever saw. He was pretty cool guy.
