what year is that reaper?
it would be nice to see dexter win at least one in his career the guy has always been in the top. I guess his lat spread holds him back no pun intended.
Im looking forward to seeing Wolf again this year id like to see how he comes in compared to last year.
Jay like people already said is a great spokesperson and guy to have as the star of bodybuilding at this point. Not to mention he carries alot of muscle. Ive never been a fan of his overall look but hell you cant deny his development is very good. Im gonna have to say it even tho i dont want to..........Jay takes it again this year and it is his last Sandow.
what year is that reaper?
I'm not sure honestly, I was looking through some pics and I am not sure what comp. that is.
Here's Jay getting owned again from the back. That's how Ronnie always beat Jay was from the back. Jay's back just isn't the same as Ronnie's. Not even close.
I know thats not the 06 or 07. I mean yes ronnie was the better man competing against Jay. When ronnie tore his left lat his symentry went to shyt. thats why he lost. If ronning never got hurt then it would have been a different story.
The left one got messed up. I think it was some nerve damage and the muscle atrophied.
I agree though, if it wasn't for the messed up symmetry, Ronnie would still be winning.
Jay just didn't have the genetics to hang with Ronnie. He only won because Ronnie was off, not because he made any drastic improvements or the such.
Has anyone seen the recent pictures from Dexter's guest posing with Wolf and Dennis James? In those pictures it looks like Dexter has definitely put on some size since the last time we saw him. It will be interesting to see if when the Olympia comes around and he's dieted down if he's still noticably larger than his previous shows, because Dexter is a guy know for only making subtle changes (5 to 10 pounds) from year to year.
It really is a shame that Victor got hurt and isn't going to be competing this year. I believe he had the best chance of defeating Cutler. Everyone knows he should have won last year and I believe that the IFBB had probably heard enough about how they fowled up the decision last year, and I don't think they would have done it again. Especially if it came down to the same two guys, and if Victor once again was clearly ahead of the Jay.
Yeah I think Vic would have been a very strong contender for the Mr. O and had a very good chance of winning it.
Wolf will place high, however I am virtually certain he will not actually win it. Part of being Mr. O is speaking English semi-well which I believe he is still struggling with.
Dexter Jackson is probably single-handedly the most under appreciated bb'er today. His conditioning is ridiculous, he has striations everywhere, and rarely is he ever off. Plus he is proportional and has a more balanced physique, IMO.
Jay Gutler needs to retire after this win. I'd hate to keep seeing the Mr. O wasted on him.
Only after literally drugging himself up to the point where is head looks weird was he able to beat Ronnie. That was after Ronnie had an injury not because Jay had a better physique.
Jay's left quad is larger than the right and he's always watery in the upper body. At best he's maybe #5. There are many more athletes that look better than him.
I wouldn't mind seeing Toney Freeman take it. His physique is pretty awesome as well. Lately he's been struggling with his conditioning, probably age catching up with him.
If Branch competes hell be a sight to see.....he's put on alot of mass....still not the most pleasing but he's a freak!
I thought Will Harris looked great last year too, id like to see him place higher.
just looked at the IFBB Ironman Pro 2008 pics on bb.com and Harris looks smooth, not too good. Phil Heath is very impressive look at those pics, he is the most conditioned of all of them. Heath i was never a fan of but man he is looking like the real deal in those pics.
PP, have you seen this deleted scene from Bigger Stronger Faster. The part where he is talking with Harris and Harris is posing is ridiculous. That back double bi pose is incredible.
I think it will be wolf or dexter. Both are always on par, and with victor and kai out, I cant see it being Jay again

I would like to see Dex,Phil,Kai,Vic place top 3 but that wont happen being 2 are out, Phil doesnt have the size, and Dex is going to end up top 3 though being Kai and Phil is out. Branch will pull 5th or 6th. Dont forget about Johnny JAckson.
