I'm prolly in the minority but I think Big Ramy has a legitimate chance to steal the O"if there's one thing women love, it's a vascular man" - stewie griffin

Yea Jay is looking sharp, but Im calling 3rd place for him. It's gonna be between Phil and Kai imo.
08-28-2013, 02:54 PM
I think jay is going to come guns blazing. I really think if he is in shape, and with his size Phil is going to have battle

I don't think big ramy is in contention, buy its going to be interesting to see him up against the top guys.

I'm pretty excited to see it all play out. I mean eother way it is looking like a war is brewing.

Who's going? I've been like the past 5 years and have had a great time. Even the wife loves to fill up her goodie bag and people watch.. But I'm pulling for Kai in this one

Can't wait to see how it goes reallllly keen! Really interested to see the condition Ramy comes in with, i doubt he'll win but its bound to be a crazy Olympia debut! My predicts are:

I'd love to see Dexter place top three this year, although I'm pretty sure it will play out......

I'd put my money on Phil.
From what I've seen of Jay guest posing his legs aren't what they used to be, and if he doesn't have those Phil's aesthetics are going to bury Jay.
I couldn't begin to predict placing, but I'm going with these guys in the top 5:
Two weeks... I'll be there.
Go hard. Go heavy. Never stop.

I want Kai to win it... I'm not a fan of Phil, and Jay has had the spotlight for long enough

Evan Centopani might creep into the mix as well. His muscle has been maturing nicely.

I would like to see Kai take it but most likely Phi. Jay needs to do the Ronnie Coleman thing and let it go but to each his own.....

What's weird about this year is a lot of our big name pros didn't do crap for competitions, I know warren wolfe shawn rhoden winklaar klocko evan big ben really all focused on the O this year, I follow them all on instagram (the ones who use it) and even the mags haven't had a lot on them, with kai jay and phil (who all look effing massive) most likely being top 3 the top ten is going to be just sick this year!
Also go flex lewis!

After looking at the pics of Heath, Kai, and Wolf; I believe that Wolf has the ability to beath Heath if he gains about 10lbs of quality lean mass to his competition frame. Whether you believe in the politics of the sport of bodybuilding or not; I can't see Kai Greene beating Phil with that wide waist. Kai was spot on and kept his waist tight last year. If any year was going to be Kai's year to win the Olympia, it was last year. Wolf needs to work on his calfs and get a tad bit thicker and I think he could give Phil a run for his money!
I also think that MuscleTech is going to drop Branch. I was really surprised to see Branch in a 9th place spot. I wonder if he's going to retire or not.
Big Ramy was just a fluke. He was just a massive guy with good photoshopping from Flex/Muscular Development magazine to give some drama in the sport. Weider & Co. is known for hyping up the competition to give the current Mr. O a lil scare. Ramy is the new generation Markus Ruhl
I respect Dexter Jackson because he never changes his aesthetics game and doesn't try to compete with anyone. Dexter is getting old though and I think that Shawn Flexatron Rhoden is going to be the competitions new "aesthetics" package to the Mr. Olympia

Next year I hope Victor Martinez can be in top 5 this year he was small and his biceps looked like synthol was used? Anyone else notice that?

And I don't think kai will ever win due to his general monk lifestyle and of course the infamous grapefruit
Phil doesn't have legs and I don't see how they keep rewarding him for it yea his upper body looked amazing this year but again legs looked beyond sub par
Ramy could easily be the future of the O if he can chisel down and maybe bring legs down a tad bit ramy is very similar to cutlers top form

Mind you I am a huge kai Greene fan I really appreciate and love how he views BB

Also pretty impressive Cutler came back with only 6 months prep by himself no coach trainer or nutrionist and hit 6th.arguably 5th. If he goes with a full year and a team he'd shake things up. Ben Pulaski wasn't there this year either, another year or two and I think he'll come back and shock everyone. Branch just getting too old or needs to stop the lift heavy weight mentality and train like a real body builder. He hasn't been dialed in at the O for a few years now, needs to go back to doing other shows and see if he can improve. Winklar is going to be crazy in another year or two he's going to make Ramey look bad
