I'll have to sell the old ones at some stage.

My left arm is weaker and somewhat smaller than my right, any tips for putting some muscle on my left and maintaining my right the same size?

Nice. Sounds convenient in a sense as it takes up less storage. A bit expensive though for the bigger set? Like, a couple of hundred dollars? I'd love to get a home gym in my house but I just don't have the money let alone a stable job.

Heavy, compound movements will do the trick overtime. Lift heavy with sound technique and you shouldn't have to worry about it down the line.

For now, dumbells should help correct the problem. Dumbells would probably suit you best to help strengthen the non-dominant side.

Mr. Olympia is in two weeks! Is anyone following it or looking forward to it as much as I am? The field is pretty well balanced and there's some good competition in there this year.

My favorite is Phil Heath and I fully expect him to run away with it. His entire upper body is massive and his legs are pretty damn big in their own right. Critics are saying that his arms are far bigger than his chest but I just don't see that though his biceps are ginormous! This is how I see it playing out:

1. Phil Heath
2. Kai Greene
3. Dexter Jackson
4. Dennis Wolf
5. Jay Cutler

Man, don't jump on the Heath bandwagon just yet. The reason he won't win the Olympia this year is muscle maturity. He won't look as grainy and dry as the older guys.

As far as Kai, he just doesn't flow well to me. Compare his lower back to others. Just doesn't work right. He's just a big ass block of muscle.

1. Dexter Jackson
2. Phil Heath
3. Kai Greene
4. Victor Martinez
5. Jay Cutler

I'm putting Jay 5th, but he might well jump Victor and Kai depending on his conditioning. If he hits it, he is top 3, if not, 5th is a gift.

Edit: Love the sig

Our top five is practically the same but no Dennis Wolf? Wow, you might be one of the only people I've come across that hasn't bought into his hype.

Wolf's arms, chest, and midsection trumps Jay's but Cutler's legs are more massive and his back thickness is > Wolf's but Wolf is a bit wider. I guess it depends on what the judges are looking for.

I do like Victor but he's coming off an injury and I don't know if he'll have it this year. I was actually going to put him 5th over Cutler.

Kai is actually planning on heading into the Olympia at 264 which would make him more massive & more shredded than Dexter tbh. Yeah, Kai's just the freakiest mother fucker in the field. Pure mass and probably the biggest competitor in the Olympia this year all around.

I'm on the Heath bandwagon. I love the guy and feel he has the best package to offer. His physique is the most pleasing and I think that will pay huge dividends to the judges this year. We'll see how his legs look this year.

Cutler needs to come in conditioned and dry. If he can drop the 20 lbs of water weight that he's been known to carry around regularly come competition time, he has a good chance to place in the top 3.

Wolf makes everyone's back look Olympia Caliber so he wont win the O' until he makes huge strides in that department.

I think the only sure thing is Dex'. He's guaranteed to place top 5 as he's always the most consistent. I don't think he'll repeat this year due to the fact that Phil and Kai are mass monsters and they dwarf him in that category. It'll take a huge slip up from Phil and Kai in order for Dexter to take first imo.

And thanks on the sig compliment.

I was seriously thinking Wolf was going to get top 3 last year, but he missed his conditioning and came in way too flat. The more I look at Wolf, the more I realize that he is missing too much to win the O. His lower back is not good, and his upper back lacks the depth the other top guys have. Width is good, but it isn't the only thing judges look at.

Victor SHOULD do well, he has all the parts... we shall see.

Yes, he is freaky, but I don't care for his build honestly, but that's just me. He fits into the freak era of 5-10 years ago. The era of appealing physiques and overall flow hopefully is here to stay.

I agree, Heath is Mr. O many times over, but that will start in 2010. Not this year. I just about guarantee 2nd place for him, but I don't see them taking the title away from Dexter. He's just too consistent and comes in shredded every year.

It was reported that he actually lost 18lbs of water between prejudging and the show last year, that's sad, because he was the best during the night show. He could have won.

welcome on the sig.

I tell you what, looking at the competitors, I think other than Dex and Heath, 3-10 could just about be in any order.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone like Branch or Toney made the top 5.

I've always wanted to meet him... I live in TX about 3.5hrs from Arlington, and have considered going to his old gym when I'm in the area. I would love to meet him and/or Branch while they are working out. Never happen with Ronnie now though b/c he works out at his home gym now.

Be ready to meet a huge sob, because I think he's running 300+lbs right now.
