i'm thinking kai as well. Jay took it back from dexter last year, but i think it's kai's year. personally, i'm a branch fan, but don't think he will win it. top 3 i hope...
08-22-2010, 04:50 PM
I too am a huge Branch fan. Im hoping in the top 3 as well. That roelly Winklaar dude is pretty sick too. Wolf supposedly redid his whole workout routine, fro this upcoming O. We'll see.
08-22-2010, 04:51 PM
Here are my picks... I'll be there as I am every year, front and center, so I can't wait for Vegas once again!
- Jay Cutler
- Phil Heath
- Roelly Winklaar
08-22-2010, 04:56 PM
Really cutler? Ok. Cool. Yeah like I just stated Winklaar looks sick. Heath is just a beast. Well Im top 3 pick would be:
Im not voteing Cutler out. He is HUGE! But the Front lines are stacked this year.
Also, I'm real curious In the Blades'(Dexter) Placing this year. I think He would have had to pack on some serious muscle to compete with the rest of the lineup.
08-22-2010, 04:59 PM
For Dexter... I just have never been a fan, of his physique or his attitude. The more I learn about him and watch him in public at the shows I travel to throughout the year, I am more and more turned off.
I know Jay is a motivated bodybuilder, and he has ALL the chips in place to make 2010 a mirror of 2009, OR BETTER. Jay performs VERY well against adversity, so hopefully he can still view himself as the 'underdog,' even though he dropped the world's collective jaws last year.
08-22-2010, 05:05 PM
Yeah Dex, Ive read is kinda a terd! But I think aesthetically he looks like one of the best, not really out proportioned, thats the only reason he has my interest. Yes, with all the magazines I read leading up to last years O. Jay was not even mentioned, not even in the top top5 for most of the predictions. I just think is a bit blockey, But yeah dude is like the biggest FREAK on the stage. Out to be a good one this year.
And yeah Winklaar, is def. the future.Id also like to see Wolf in the top 5 this year. Dont ask me why, I just like that dude for SOME reason.
08-22-2010, 05:09 PM
Jay or kai, I don't think anyone else is ready, people don't
Like jay, bc he "sold out" with muscletech or whatever, or he's too nice of a guy
But when it comes down to it 200,000 for the O aint gonna keep you living like arnold
I can't blame any of em for doing them ridicolous 26 page magazine spreads
Jay is a good dude though and now that his symetry is fixed up
I don't think a lot of ppl can hold him down
I hope kai takes it too
The only thing that woullddddd get at me is ronnie coleman getting another O
I can't stand ronnie coleman
08-22-2010, 05:18 PM
Is ROnnie ever coming back?LOL. Ive read a whole bunch of junk about him the last year. I saw a pic of him doing a guest pose, man was his side oblique ways tooooooo big.LOL
Found of couple of pics of this year

Now, Kai is... oh man, I truly try not to let me personal feelings of him as a joke and a false prophet and self absorbed philosopher wannabe skew my opinion, but its so hard. He always has a film of water and many times I feel as though his best attribute (low lats) often times make him appear more blocky than his peers.
As far as Jay and his endorsements, I don't understand the premise whatsoever how that can be paralleled to selling out. Becoming a bankable iconic professional athlete in your chosen craft always comes along with the benefit of having companies offer your compensatory remuneration in exchange for your image and promotion. How on Earth can we fault Jay for being a handsome accomplished athlete who deservedly demands high paychecks from the world's premier supplement manufacturer (in terms of net profit)? He has no control or concern over how many pages each 'spread' is, he is simply aggregating his finances preparing for his future without bodybuilding.

I feel ya. I dont knock anyone for being on pages and pages of Ads. As long as us(the consumer) can realize that Nitro-tech, and Nano vaper didnt make Mr.O physique's. People have jobs. People get paid to do there job. Some people have better jobs than others.
Kai the philosopher...LOL. MAn, I just got done reading an article in the new Flex. And after every question asked. There was like so much round about wording and what not. If you can seperate the two, and take Kai's physique for what it is, the better. I Like Kai's off beat stage "shows". Yeah Those low lats ARE starting to catch up and take away from the good.
Ronnie...Oh Ronnie. The mans a Legend. Period. I dont really get too involved with the whining and what not. Ive seen a few interviews that I couldnt even finish watching, then just found some of his workout videos, and was Like OK. THis Is Ronnie the legend.

i know we are talking about this mr.O but i was wondering what yall think about yates?
i loved his early phsyique like circa 73 i think is the year, i seen a pic from that year and that single pic inspired me when i was like 17 to actually stop doing 400 crunches for a work out and actually do some rows or somethin and get really beast, it was all the motivation i needed thats why i got alot of love for the early dorian
08-22-2010, 06:10 PM
I do NOT want to take anything away from your love and admiration of Yates, I am only offering my opinion, but stick to your original passion for his physique and accomplishments. That being said, I thought Yates entire proposed training theorem and physique were reckless and lackluster to say the least. Of course when I make these comments I am talking through the scope of history and the other top pros the IFBB has churned out over the decades, because compared to us on this forum we would be dwarfed by his physique. The training style he continued, against all reason, to implement ended his career, and reaped havoc on his symmetry and ability to tap out his true genetic potential in my opinion.
08-22-2010, 06:15 PM
i never really followed yate's career, i just liked his early years i cant find the pic i was looking for i was gonna post it but cant find it,

When it comes to "wheels", I'd compare "Kai" to "Tom Platz"....sick!
But I gotta be honest....I'd like to see Victor Martinez completely clean up his physique and give the others a run for the money. It seems every since his quad injury, he's never gotten back up to speed.

I'm surprised Cutler isnt' getting more attention. He looked amazing at the last Olympia.
I don't know where to place these guy to be honest, but I certainly see Phil, Cutler, Kai, Warren and Dexter in the mix. Wolf is a bit inconsistent, so I don't ever bank of him.

Yeah Wolf has changed help several times, and each time it was his helps fault he was off. I just dont get it. I know the help is, what it is. But at that level. Dont you know your own body at all.
