Is HerBiceps.com still good?

Oct 15, 2014 - permalink
Its been a few years since I signed up, wondering if it has improved or not. Thanks.

I see 150 people viewed this, so 150 people have no idea if it's good or not?

 For my tastes Herbiceps.com has improved over time. They seem to have a good variety of models from all branches of the field. I may not always like all the material, but that diversity is a positive for me.

Oh really? Whats wrong with the material? Too PG or videos too shaky?

I'm a member. They post a lot of material, but there's so much hand-held shaky camera work. The last few uploads have been a lot better, so maybe they're improving. They do have a wide variety, which is why I signed up. Still, more stable camera work and lighting would help.

A lot of good hosts

Shaky cam? What videos are you watching?

camera work is good (they finally stopped doing the MTV style zoom/loop shots)...great video quality...good variety of women and the videos do a good job of capturing their many facets. Not really sure how much higher a person's expectations have to be to be disappointed with their work, but they have to be pretty unreasonably high, and if anyone is disappointed I really wanna know which site is better.

I agree with the last post. There is a good variety of women and I've never had any complaints about the quality of the camera work. It's probably the best paysite out there for muscular women. I also subscribe to HDPhysiques.com, which I like as well, but I would give the edge to HerBiceps.

I've just signed back up, there has been a recent burst of remastered videos with higher quality, and you can't beat the variety of ladies on there. Posting schedule is highly variable, but with patience you will be rewarded.

I've subscribed several times to this website (since many years) and it seems to me the guy who runs it has became a little bit "lazy" (not enough updates for the money).

If you're a fan of the natural look, aka no breast implants, then HB is the place to go.   The management is obviously a fan too.  He seems to book a lot of those kinds of models.  Probably a 10 to 1 ratio. 

The newer HD videos I think are mostly very good.  The older ones look like a snow storm but they are there.   Some of the girls are no longer active and it is kind of neat to see one you remember and haven't seen in awhile in any kind of video at all, even if it is low resolution.

As with any site, I say join for a month, cancel, then join again a year or two from now.  Almost every one of even the thinnest sites I have joined for a month have $15.95 worth of something you could probably find that you'd want to see.  Even Bill Dobbins' crap site was almost worth the money.

it needs a higher resolution now (max 1280 x 1024), but without withdrawing lower ones (because some devices can't play 1920 x 1080 at full speed)
there's a lot missing thumbnails (kinda...) from videos, so how can I download only videos what I'd like to see?
many thumbnails displayed have a bad H/V ratio on the screen
there's some 404 errors also
so, from the 3 last points above: this is laziness of the webmaster, this is amateurism!
there's a limit of 2.5 GBytes per day, that's a little "greedy" to me
download accelerators are forbidden: how can we download properly a lot of picture, one by one?
I can't stand the voice of the main guy filming...
body comparison with men and armwrestling with men are pretty laughable: put male bodybuilders against the strong women instead of weakling!

- Pro:
many many beautiful women (face and body), generally not "off season"; all flavors from "figure" to living barrels of Performance Enhancing Drugs (but huge women are few on this website)
good visual quality of the video (except too much contrast sometimes)
no watermark for a few seconds at the beginning or at the end of the videos (many websites do it, I hate that, it leads me to cut some videos)
I like the way Mike is shooting
many interviews

Last detail: some women are called "natural" on the website. Interesting: do they call/claim themselves as "natural"?

My overall judgment is herbiceps.com does worth a subscription one time per year, maybe two (to get enough updates to make your subscription profitable, like any other websites) but it needs a good webmaster.

Frequency may seem choppy at times, but over a longer period of time, like several months, you get more than your money's worth in amount of both clips and photo galleries.

While you're waiting, the back catalog is pretty impressive. There are newer sites out there, like HD Physiques, Kriv, Amazing Muscle Beauties. But for the money, HB remains #1, in my opinion. I do hear the thoughts about quality of the web site. The one downside of HB, in my view, is that it still uses the antiquated Diana the Valkyrie web site format from the very late 1990s.

One other thought is that HB seems to have many of the top photographers in the field working for them, or consulting. Examples........Sean Nelson is good. Tre Scott has his own web sites. J.P. Erickson, Jeff Binns and James Cook occasionally shoot. Dan Ray is the only big name they don't seem to have, but he's pretty booked with his photog job for Muscular Development.

I have been a member on and off since 2006 and am currently signed up at the moment. For me it's probably the equal best with two others, HD Physique and Kriv, the rest are nowhere near as good as HB. The video is fantastic, some sites have crap picture quality but HB is alway crisp and clear and there is a massive amount of content in both image gallery and video.

However there are some problems with it …

The images sizes are TOO SMALL! They are 700x1091 (or about that) about half the size it should be!

There are too many missing pictures on the models profile pages so you can't see what they look like without going into their gallery, and missing pictures in the video section which has been mentioned above.

The main list is a shambles listing about 20 years of models in chronological order with many listed numerous times. It would be easier to navigate if the models were listed alphabetically once so you can find people, and chronologically somewhere else so you can see the updates. But I suppose it would take forever to redesign the site now!

Herbiceps was the best site for many years in the early 2000s, but times left it behind. They haven't improved since they first started the page. The design is laughable by today's standards. With a little investment they could hire a professional to make the site much better.

But of course the site is nothing without content. And the content is a very mixed bunch on herbiceps. Personally I think there are too many bikini type women on there, who show absolutely no definition, not to mention muscularity. And when occasionally a nice looking model crops up, you have to wait months to get just 2-3 videos of that model. Because of their dripping of the content from one shoot for months or even a year. They should post all material of one model from one shoot, in maybe 2 or 3 installments max, and within a month. Not streched out over 6 months, often getting just an interview and nothing else at a time.

Another thing I don't like about the site is that the videography is amateurish. They almost always rely on natural lighting and nothing else, which is crap especially since many of the shoots are done in poorly lit hotel rooms or hallways.  For someone who was in the business for decades I'd expect better than shaky handicam work in poor light. The only improvement over the herbiceps of 15 years ago comes from the better cameras thus higher resolution videos.

Anyone want to see what professional work should look like check out musclegirlshd.com  and don't be afraid that it's only a vimeo channel. It's well worth it. With some of the most beautiful models you'll see anywhere, shot with professional makeup and ligting. Also the posing is more natural with much experimenting with angles and poses.

I still enjoy HerBiceps.com a lot. I do admit, there are too many bikini ladies for my taste these days, but there's still a decent amount of muscular women on there. Also, there are planning on doing a massive overhaul to their site and webcam, and planning on doing something called HerBicepsPlus. If things go well, it should be done by this summer.

Old thread, but thanks for the feedback, everyone.  Plus is open now.  ;D  Updated daily, and there's free content every week.

I'm always interested in seeing what the fans like.  Do you have an updated URL or vimeo channel for them?  I went to the link and did a search, but couldn't find anything.
