  1. 2012 Mr. Olympia Discussion Thread


    Alright, guys! We are here in Olympia-month. In 4 weeks, we will be crowning the 2012 Mr. Olympia. Who do you think it's going to be? I've got to go with Phil in a repeat, but if anybody is going to beat him, it will be Kai.

    What are y'all's opinions on the contest this year? I'll keep this thread updated with pics/rosters for the competition in the coming days.

    If Evan breaks the top 5, then I will be pretty surprised. I think he needs another year or 2 before truly challenging. Dennis is certainly a threat, but he lacks the overall conditioning that Phil and Kai are gonna bring, imo. I have him taking 3rd-4th.

    Yeah, Kai is a really humble and thoughtful person. It's weird to think that about him, but he really is very different from most of the other guys. I've met him a couple times, and both times he talked to me for an extended period of time and actually wanted to know my thoughts on some different things. He can get too "wordy" or philosophical sometimes though. Haha.

    I feel as if evan would beat out branch. But we know that's not gonna happen. Dennis i feel is still lacking back and hamstrings. i can't wait see how ben does.

    2. Branch
    3. Kai
    4. Wolf

    Evan maybe at 5

    I what kai to place above branch.

  11. I think Kai deserves a win. If he were up just a few years earlier back in the day of the mass giants of Yates and Coleman his body could definitely win.

    Seems like judges are moving toward the more cut symmetrical look over the more bulky bodies like Kai. Plus his grapefruit and cage dancing past probably weighs into it, mr.o has to have a squeaky clean record( their opinion not mine)

    I agree. I still think coleman had amazing symmetry for his size. Dorian just change the over all mass bb had. So i that's why i think he was favored then. As for phil and kai, phil has rounder more cartoon ish muscle and his conditioning and symmetry we great. The only thing that was lagging on phil was his back width. Kai had great mass but i feel that his muscle fullness wasn't up to par with phils. Should be good to see how it plays out this year. i think phil has put on a good amount of mass.

  13. Phil is deff on for a repeat but I think Branch is gonna give it all hes got. Dont count branch out he's really made amazing improvments and his physique just like Heath's stands out compared to the other competitiors. Branch has size and brings that hard grainy look that Dorian Yates once brought to the stage. I think the title is between Phil and Branch and whoever comes conditioned will win it.

  14. I think Kai is better overall but not the body that they look for. Too square and too big in lower quadrant. I like the guy for who he is but in the end Phil Heath has the symetry,- if you like it or not..I can go either way but he will hold another title

    Heath has some specific issues with his upper chest and lower back that bug me if I were judging...

    Yeah it's all about the judges opinion. The judges are saying that Phil Heaths body is the current standard in bodybuilding which allowed him to win Mr. Olympia. But what about this... Flex Wheeler who never won the Mr.O, in my opinion looks like he wins this fantasy competition. The IFBB judges are always under contraversey for how they judge.

    What about from the back? Phil is known for his crazy size/separation in his back. That's where he won the Olympia last year. He turned around and it was GAME OVER!

    Totally agree with you.

    I hope Kai gets at least one sandow though, hes getting old.

  22. I think it's a toss up between Phil and Kai. It's going to be a lot closer then people think.

    If Kai comes in with insane conditioning, then he certainly has a shot. I don't think anybody else has a chance to beat Phil.

    That's sooo funny you said that because Flex Magazine's FaceBook page just posted a Flex vs. Heath in a rear double bicep pose. Heath is larger but in my opinion back development goes to Wheeler. You are deff right though that Heath's back is much larger. Even in the frontal pic I posted you can see the lats sticking out much wider in Heath compared to Wheeler....

    I pretty much agree with this, but though I agree with this lineup I'd still love to see Branch or Kai grab #1 instead of Phil. Also I've always liked Lionel Beyeke and think it would be awesome if he could place top 5.



    Though I don't really think he will :\

    Steve Kuclo will be top 5 for sure!

  29. i dont' see phil losing....2nd place is when it gets interesting...it's either kai or branch imo, branch always comes in conditioned, kai hardly ever comes in 100%, evan beat wolf at the arnold, but i've recently seen a wolf pic and he looks like he's made huge improvements in size

    watch out for shawn rhoden, he's been the best bodybuilder so far this year

    I believe that Evan Centopani and Steve Kuclo are the future of the IFBB Mr. Olympia. I guess time will tell and we'll see who grows more maturely between the 2. Kuclo really made some amazing improvements and it doesn't surprise me when he is being trained by one of the top professional trainers in the business, "The Pro Creator" Hany Rambod. Hany also trains Jay Cutler and Phil Heath. They call him the pro creator because he mainly focuses on building up the top amateurs in the game and every amature who has Hany on their team becomes a pro.
