damit it wont go through....
I don't think he should retire. In my oppinion, he looked better than last year. Dex did come in looking GREAT though. I'm not a Dex fan at all. But he looked better than I think I've ever seen him. Looks like he put on a little size and stayed ripped. Jay has a problem with symmetry, mainly in his lats and biceps (his left bicep is like double the size of the right). To be honest, with that symmetry imbalance, I think Jay needs to come in HUGE, because that's his best chance of getting higher points if he can't correct his imbalances. But he needs to keep that waist down too. So it's a double edged sword for sure. I don't know, that's my .02. But he shows incredible sportsmanship when he loses. I really admire that.
how can you not be a fan of dex...i think god made him in a test tube. it is just me or is he perfectly symmetrical?!? heath is next closest think imo in terms of symmetry.
Phil Heath will win olympia with the next few years
he will compete again next year, but after he loses again he will consider it ;-)
2009= Jay vs Victor.. .Jay is animal and he's gonna win the show..Victor will follow soon..
They don't and should not retire and thats what will be appreciated..the game must get intense.. cheers
Jay wont retire, Vic will also do the arnold, which could hurt him in terms of conditioning later on in the year, and Dennis might as well...
victor is gonna own jay. we have seen the best of jay already imo he is on the downhill.
I wouldn't be surprised if he took the Olympia title back next year.
Jay beat Dexter at the night show, meaning if he had come in like he had on the night show it would have been lights out.
Jay has had some issues coming in the last few years. But if he just goes in as if his against Ronnie again no one can touch him with his mass. He went a bit too small trying to beat Dexter in conditioning, that's not Jay's strong point. He should have out muscled him.
I'm pretty sure Jay's going for a third victory. I do think he should retire after that because I don't think he'll win a fourth time. I think he'd be better of making some kids and spreading those genes for a new generation of bodybuilders!
He said he wants a 3rd and that will be it. Plus the rumor is that his wife wants a kid now. So who knows. I believe this is his last try and it should be over.
I never liked Jay's hair.
true... but in the world of bodybuilding and sleeping hpta receptors., hair isnt very common... thats why cutler rocks a visor. Or at least thats what he said..
I think he has a few years left before he retires. He may try to make it until 40 in my opinion. But there is no way he just up and quits after a 2nd place loss to Dexter.
I'm a little biased as a Cutler fan, but I feel sorry for him b/c I think he is one of the most dedicated bodybuilders in history. He was fighting for number one during the era of Coleman. Up until Coleman, bodybuilders were rewarded for getting bigger and bigger, until finally the public really started to criticize the sport b/c it no longer rewarded symmetry and conditioning. Jay, merely adapted to the get big theory b/c that's what the judges obviously wanted since he was number two for a long time. Then after he won, there now seems to be a huge shift in the judging. (Which I'm happy to see) I'd rather see a Dexter win Mr. O than a Ronnie any day.
Hopefully Jay will once again adapt and maybe come in 10 - 20lbs lighter in superb condition. The main flaw he needs to correct is the skin folds in his lower back. I'm pulling for Jay in 2009 though.
