^^agree 100% bro
thanks for the updates tkD
this is going to be a very unfortunate year for jay. the judges will do what they did with ronnie in 07 and give him a placing somewhere in the 4th-6th range as a way of saying "please retire before we are forced to place you lower"
How in hell do you compare Ronnie's 2007 injured phisique, with half body missing, with 2009 Jay's????
Jay Cutler looks exactly the same as in 2007 or 2008, as good, or as bad.
Ronnie lost about 20 pounds of muscle in his left size during that offseason.
Get real, hate the guy, but get real.
Also, most of the other gear they take wouldn't kill them either if they stayed on. Its the diuretics that kill.
With that said, some don't need to be on year round. I would say that there are more NPC competitors on year round then IFBB pros that are. Thats simply because the pros are able to hold more mass naturally because of their genetics. Jay probably comes off at some point. I know Ronnie did, he would with that 2-3 months of no working out even. Gunther did (he actually gained muscle going into comps.). A bunch come off.
