      lesukov is far behind from making any damage in the pro ranks..i hope Lionel Beyeke hits his mark..its a pitty such great lines/genetics going to waste because of poor conditioning

      Lionel has sick potential, I hope he realizes it to the fullest some day.

      I have mad respect for the bodybuilding dedication that Alexey has. Totally donated his life to the sport.

      I wait for Shabunia to finally come in condition and take a top spot...
      The best thing about Lesukov these days is his girlfriend...

      Attachment 5960Attachment 5961 All Alexey needs is to nail his condition, he has the mass and body parts to do very well, not quite sure why people seem to dislike him besides the fact that he needs to work on his conditioning. These pics were from 2011 and in the best condition ive seen him though that could be due to the high contrast of the pics; if he comes in conditioned hes a force to be reckoned with.

      If Hidetada can win shows. I dont see why Alexey cant do well. I dont see him as a top level competitor but i see him doing well in smaller shows if he nails his presentation and gets more density.

      ^ The king of all examples is Kevin English... if he can be Mr O then anyone can win anything. I was just making a prediction no oe asked for... if he wins I will be very happy for him because he is certainly paying his dues. I just wish he gets away from whichever Guru he is with and get someone like Farah, Denis or Hany! Russians have been showing potential on & off but nothing has comethough for the long run... and I blame the Gurus over their who can just do so much before ruining you all together!

      Agree about the Hidetada comparison. If he is in shape he can win this show easily.

      To My Finnish Fans and Nordic Pro ticket holders,

      I am sorry to inform you that due to my extremely busy and demanding schedule along with other personal family matters. I will not be competing in the Aug.31, 2013 Nortdc Pro Championships.

      I competed in 12 shows in a 12 month period. I was looking forward to making the Nordic pro #13 and # 5 for 2013.

      Please except my sincere apologies. I'm sure many of you will be disappointed. This situation is of Zero fault of K.P., the promotor. He went out of his way for me to be well taken care of. I will now focus my attention on the Mr.Olympia.


      I hope to be in my best ever form at the young age of 47 years old. Thank you all for hopefully understanding that while I may be the X-Man... I'm only Human.

      Sincerely,
      Toney Freeman

      Even if he will be at least at the 3 weeks out mark, he will still be good enough to win imo.
