Its going to be one HELL of a competition between all of these guys. Now that Ronnie's gone its a level playing feild and i must say... I cannot wait to see what these bro's bring to the O stage

    despite being a die hard Jay fan I do agree that Victor was the true winner (by physique of course) but yea...politics go a long way

    My 2 favorites of all-time are Zane and Flex. Crazy symmetry, big, yet still aesthetic (ok Zane isn't big, but you get my point). I still strive to have that Frank Zane mainly because it is very achievable for most people.

    Dennis Wolf!!! Huge with a small waist. He is some what reminiscant of the "golden years" of bodybuilding and has been compared to Arnold alot as of late. I think this kids gonna go along way in the sport ,politics aside of course because I don't think he's as marketable as the "American BB's". Also Phil Heath looked just totally amazing at the Iron-Man this year both of those guys are young and have great physics so I'm sure we'll be seeing alot more of the two of them in the next few years. But Dennis Wolf would have to be my favorite overall!

    Dennis Wolf is the man!!! His "X" frame looks way better than just about everyone else.

    David Henry. Despite being short, that guy always comes in shredded condition. He always gets underplaced.

    I always liked Levrone. He should have won an O.

    I really like Victor nowadays. I just love his physique and he always seems to come in with great conditioning. Too bad he messed up his knee because I think he seriously could have taken the O this year. He opened a lot of eyes last year.

    I wish I could make it out to the O this year it should be an awesome show. Especially with all the new up and coming guys like Heath and Kai Greene.

    If anyone could do it, it would be Levrone. His genetics are insane. Do you know he use to take 6 months off between shows (no lifting, dieting, etc) and then just train full force for a couple months and show up looking amazing.

    Gotta say Arnold and Franco.. bodybuilding went downhill when Dorian came starting all the big guts.

    Don't get me wrong.. the guys today are beasts and deserve the praise for all they've done but it's a disgrace compared to how bodybuilding used to be.

    Don't hate on Dorian. Dorian is one of my favorite bodybuilders of all time and in my opinion one of the best ever. It's just a different game nowadays. Dorian dominated an era where the competition was far greater than what it is has been lately or even back in Arnold's day. Don't get me wrong, I love Arnold and without him the sport wouldn't be anything near what it is today. He brought bodybuilding into the spotlight and introduced it to the world. I just personally feel that in Arnold's day it was kind of a one man show. Yes there is a few other greats from that time, but I just feel the Olympia was Arnold's with ease. Hell he even took five years off without serious lifting and competing and came back and one. Nowadays, maybe not this coming year it was kind of the same, it was Ronnie and Cutler. The other guys are monsters, but never really stacked up when put side by side. It seems to be getting much more competitive again though. The aging and retirement of Ronnie and the appearance of Victor last year, and the new up and comers, Phil Heath, Kai Greene, etc, plus the fact that the judges seem to be focusing a little bit more on aesthetics again, which I think is the right direction for the sport. There are finally those guys that can bring the whole package to the stage. The insane mass, symmetry, and while still bringing tip top conditioning. I think bodybuilding is going to be great for the next few years.

    well, arnold sorta set foot on something new... (a lot had to do with his personality and what he did for bodybuilding).. then came dorian, well because of his time, the new competition etc, dorian started something too---he was HUGE. from then on it was just big beastly over muscled guts. I think now that ronnie is gone, the playing field is level (cutler CAN and HAS brought a tight, smaller, and more aesthetically pleasing physique but he had to compete with Coleman). Despite my cutler fanatacism (like I said, its got a lot to do with who he is as a person too, not just his physique), I think martinez should have won last year. That just shows that the judges now want to see something bigger and improved from arnold's day, but not the same thing they have been seeing (freak of nature colemans). I think this years O will be a turning point with all the new guys and the similar but very competitive physiques. (similar in that they are not generally all huge and distended.)

    Yes I agree. I think Victor placing so high last year was a good sign of what to come. I love his physique. He is absolutely massive, but has awesome symmetry and definition. Plus a lot of the new comers also seem to have very aesthetically pleasing physiques. Hopefully this year will be the start of a slightly more aesthetically driven competition. I love seeing the huge guys, Ronnie, Ruhl, Cutler, etc, but I also love those guys that can bring incredible mass along with amazing aesthetics.

    On a side note, pudz have you gotten on stage yet. I know you have big plans for yourself one day in bodybuilding. Just wondering if you've competed yet, out of curiosity?

    hahah soon soon.

    I havent stepped on stage yet, but this may be the big year for me. Im still young and building the best physique I can before jumping the gun with competition. As I see it I have a time window. This year would be ideal for me to start competing and hopefully be successful, but if for some reason it takes another year to get my physique where I want it before competing then I will take that time. I project a first show before 09'

    I'm not hating on Dorian bro, I'm saying that he's the one that came out bringing the extended guts. He was a great bodybuilder and was a monster, it's just the fact that he's the one that started turning bodybuilders into freaks.
