    looks like Branch was not up to his old self and Rhoden surprised people. Kai and Heath for 1 and 2 right now. Tonight should be interesting

    kai beat phil in some poses, phil looked better last year.......but phil still has better shape and won his fair share of poses

    biggest disappointment was evan imo....i think he looked like crap, he was conditioned but he had no size and no pop to his muscles

    biggest surprises were rhoden and dexter, dexter looked really good, rhoden also being young looked really good

    Jose Raymond said that to Evan in a video from Muscular Development when they were training back. He said something along the line "it's one thing to be big and it's one thing to be ripped. But to be big and ripped and keep your muscles full is another thing" ...As for Heath and Kai I think it's not one sided at all. You can't say one was better than the other because they both did their homework and brought a package that would win this year. So now it's all about the judges opinion on what they are looking for this year

    I'm rooting for Kai... He's a little crazy but I like his story and hope he finally gets one, his v taper is as good as its every been, I think he's always had a hard time with his mid section being to bloated, his definition is just insane even next to heath the ripples in his back are just awesome

    Yes his midsection is going to hurt him still. He got leaner but genetically he has a wide waist

    Looking at those pics, Kia's midsection is more ripped than Heath's. Heath only has 2 abs showing.

    Yeah but its more his bone structure than anything, plus Kai always has great abdominal muscles but a lot of the time he's bloated and that hurts him, can't do anything about the wide bone structure but his lats and shoulder width are great enough to have a good look when he is in good conditioning, he's put in the work and nutrition for sure but he just has to have his conditioning locked down and I don't think anyone can take him down.

    Yeah, you bring up a good point. Only time will tell i guess. I always thought the bloated look was from HGH use. We never really used to see it years back but now we do. I do agree that Phil does not have that look which makes him look more impressive.

    I know you guys are fans of Flex, but eh, I kind of felt Dave Henry had that. I am only saying this from the pictures, I didn't watch it (wanted to; missed it). But we'll see how next year goes. It'll be tough with English coming back.

    I was really dissapointed w/ Branch Warren. I think he dieted too hard. He was leaner than ever b4 but he lost size compared to his physique @ the Arnold Classic. I was expecting to see something crazy

    I think Branch and Wolf were a disappointment this year. I must say Rhoden was a HUGE surprise.

    Yeah, Shawn Rhoden was certainly the surprise of the show. He looked fantastic!

    Is it just me or does it seem like Shawn has a much more "classic" bodybuilder look than most of the other big bodybuilders right now?

    Yes. He is big but not massively freaky. He is lean, tight, and hard too
