He needs to do some deep squats and deadlifts, nothin else,
Is Chad still alive after what happened last night?
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
If somebody messes up they ussually pull something good out of the bag next time round, Wolf to me has regressed conditioning wise and also seen as though he's had a long time to improve his weaknesses to me he hasn't that much. Which is obv to do with his training. This guy has a very good amount of untapped potential and the thing that would really kick start it would be when he bloodey makes the transition from training like a pussy to training like an ultimate machine. If I was him after the O, I'd just do a routine consisting of free weights-BASIC compound movements! And that would consist of things like ATG squats!! Oh and DEADLIFTS!
This thread just shows how hard is to be a competitor at this level and be crushed by the pressure of high expectations, if you slip and slide...
I don't want to defend Dennis, but the guy still lacks experience at his age and contest history and it's very difficult to be pinpoint perfect when you're competing with this bodyweight for the first time...
Let's also not forget the fact that Dennis had a hernia operation (very visible in the abs and thigh pose) and he didn't have a full year of heavy lifting opportunity as many people think...Remember how Branch came from a hernia operation and barely placed 12th at the O. in 2006 after a strong 2nd place at the Arnold the same year....
You guys are idiots. No offence but a thread of him sucking is too retarded to live even on life support. So what if he failed this year? Considering that last year's fourth place was only a minor setback, he only has failed once now.
And what kind of mentality is this anyway? One or two failures and you put on a thread of him sucking? And next time when he comes in shape, you'll all kiss his ass like nothing happened?
In the Olympia the stakes are always high, and the guys take enormous risks. Usually only 3-6 competitors are full and shredded. Many people have failed, just look at where Branch was couple of years ago. Most of the fans said he was done. Same goes regarding Gustavo, same will be said about Melvin, Toney etc.
My point: You shouldn't be so hard on Dennis, he isn't slacking off just like nobody else isn't either. He does Deadlifts and squats, but some muscles are hard to improve. And I bet he doesn't need some "Foreverbulk91" to tell him how to train.
He had a bad year, hopefully he will compete more often in the future so he will get his conditioning back. If not, I won't be kicking him when he's on the ground.
For the record, the original poster is more intelligent about training than Dennis Wolf could ever dream of. Wolf relies on genetics and just does what others tell him.
