The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all
kinds of talk, get told that you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron
will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference
point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in
the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be my greatest friend. It
never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two
hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.
There is a lot to be said for athletes who struggle to compete even when they know they lack either the skills or the talent to win. It speaks volumes of their perseverance. However, Kamali's attitude on and off stage takes away all of the respect from the fans he should receive for his efforts. Case and point: all of the comments so far. There are some bad physiques out there who go on with their business quietly, plodding away in their quest for a trophy they will never win. Kamali,because of his mouth and attitude, has put himself in a position where his bark most definitely outsizes what little bite, if any, he has. Shame but he brought it on himself.
Mr. Kamali, it is time for a serious reality check. Get yourself some real friends who will guide you in the direction you need to go instead of the groupies you currently have who massage your ego and tell you that the reason you are not winning is because all of the judges and all of the fans and all of the pros out there are engaged in a conspiracy to keep you down.
Whatever he did after 2001 to his training, diet, or supps really messed up his physique.....BADLY!!!
If you look at his 2001 version his arms look much bigger and fuller. His conditioning was really good and he had a SICK split in his quad/ham/glute from the side.
He was also working with Chad Nichols at that time as well. Since then I think he's gone through several different trainer/nutrionist and I thinks he's done his prep on his own a few times. I guess we see where that got him.
Ok I am from Central America, in our gym we have a wonderful muscletech add from 2002 where king displayed and kept the shape of Mr.Olympia 2001, can someone tell me how a B.B can spoil his physic and condition in such a manner???, King displayed good condition in 2001, he is extremely big with assymetries all over his body, no peaks on biceps, no horseshoe, no calves (and he displayed calves at 2001 ASC), look OLD, damn it's a shame.
KING DISPLAYING A GREAT SET OF CALVES hugging the champion Ronnie
Good times where he was well-trained
Displaying a PEAK in his biceps
