You can tell that Mr.Olympia weekend is closer day by day. Ah, the speculation!
Dex's waist definitely has grown. Over the past few years I've noticed his stomach sticking out slightly more, particularly when he's standing relaxed. I don't think it'll be "bad" come contest day, but it seems to be the case with nearly all top level pros- go for size and the stomach goes too. Examples: Coleman, Cutler, James, Victor, Gustavo, Warren, Kai, Rockel, and numerous others.
Wolf had slight distention last year, and I think it will be slightly worse this year. His waist is still narrow and he has crazy shoulder and lat width, but I hope he doesn't take the size game too far.
I don't think it's that big of a deal. He has gained a lot over the years and to think he can keep his waistline from when he turned pro is stupid.
If you want to compare waistlines you really should find pictures where he does the exact same pose.
IMO he looks great and I can't wait to see him on the Olympia stage.
Of course it's a big deal if Dex can't maintain his great waistline and abs.
But it's not a big deal yet but it could be in the near future. It just happens when you pack on size. The same thing seems to be going on with Wolf right now.
I personally think that Dex is going to look great at this years Olympia.
