Width is good, but it isn't the only thing judges look at.
I agree about Dennis. The back has to improve, no doubt about it. His conditioning will be good this year though. Rumors have him working out with Milos Sarcev again so those giant sets have to help him come in better condition than in previous years in various competitions.

Victor SHOULD do well, he has all the parts... we shall see.
Talk about conditioning. He does have the entire package but he always looks bloated and out of condition.

Quote:
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.
Best back in the business at the moment, best glutes/hams in the business, and his biceps/triceps are just as good as Wolf's & Heath's at this point. I don't see how Kai finishes any lower than second.

He is a mass monster but his physique is the best if Heath doesn't bring it this year.

Quote:
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.
We'll see how it unfolds. Like I said, I don't think Dexter is big enough compared to the other specimens in the field but who knows? Didn't most say the same thing about Dexter last year?

Quote:
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.
He's like Victor to me. Massive but less symmetrical than Martinez. Cutler isn't in his prime anymore and I see him having a hard time hanging around with the likes of Phil, Kai, and Dexter.

It sucks to be Cutler. Jay was in his prime way back in 01-05 but still couldn't compare to Ronnie.

Quote:
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.
Oh yeah. Rumor is that Badell is in top notch shape and Branch has made improvements in his arms.

Lucky you. Let me know how big his 23' arms look in person.

I've seen a couple of recent videos of him, and yeah, he's got the gut at the moment. With any luck he'll cut up for the show. This'll be the only chance I ever get to see him so it's worth going just for that. I'll be taking the camera so if I get any decent shots I'll post them.

Hey Mitch, I know you are a fan of Mariusz Pudzianowski so did you see he is making his MMA debut? Guess he has trained in boxing for 7 years and has a green belt in Kyokushin kaikan Karate.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I'm new to this ;[ but WHY do body builders try to turn so dark for competitions? Those 2 white/asian guys look legit African American which is cool and freaky at the same time.

Actually at a 2nd look it looks like a REALLY fucked up spray on tan.. can anyone give me input?

I love Pudzianowski. Greatest strongman athlete in history at this point though Poundstone might make a run at that.

But I had no idea bout that! I'd feel bad to be his opponent. Mariusz has admitted that he takes performance enhancing drugs regularly and they don't test for them at the WSM. I honestly didn't know he did mixed martial arts.

My understanding is that they do it for two reasons. Tanning thins the skin, showing cuts and striations better. Then they put the protan on before the shows because with the stage lighting, it shows the cuts and striations even better.

Flex... correct me if I'm wrong, but I think i've read that before.

He would have to go off for a while before they let him fight. For any state athletic commission to sanction a fight, he would have to test clean.

On or off, he would twist someone in half though. He's a beast.

It is taking place in Poland so I have no idea what kind of sanctioning they have over there. Would not surprise me if it was like Japan where it was said that a lot of the Pride guys were on roids.

No, you're right. The spray tan adds some extra depth or something like that which helps make one appear more striated and dry. I've read that, too. You know your shit. There was actually an article on bodybuilding.com about it. I'll have to see if I can find it.

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
SOOOOOO, Flex, you still sticking to your picks???

Yessssir. For the most part.

Phil ftw.

Dexter or Kai for 2nd.

Wolf 4th, Cutler 5th.

I'm not too comfortable picking Kai over Dexter but I'll stick with it because I think Kai will out-mass him and that will play dividends.
