^^ I think we have a larger font you can use. I think you should use it in every post you make.
i thought branch looked great. I still think he needs more size in his arms. he needs more back bc his legs are so huge when he hits a back shot it makes his back look smaller than it is, but aside from that im not disappointed he was 2nd at all. But i guess those are all reasons he should not of had 2nd place. Im disappointed kai didnt get 3rd over dexter if any thing.
Disclaimer: None of this refers to Jay's win this year, which was deserved.
I don't know how many of you have actually seen the show, it can't be too many I guess. You can't judge them just by looking at single pictures, you have to see them standing side by side to really see the differences. I also have the impression that most of you guys are judging more by "politics" and "hype" and their "Team XYZ" rather than giving everybody a fair chance. Think about that!
I watched the prejudging and the finals and I had them like this:
I had Branch a close third, but second is totally fine with me and I believe the judges finally did NOT went for politics, which is the biggest improvement of this Olympia compared to the last years/decades.
Good post line
Branch deserved 2nd. I had him as fourth or fifth bc of politics. His arms are huge guys. Idk why yall keep saying they're small. They're over 20''. He brought up his back a lot this year which helped a lot. He had the best conditioning on stage. He's full of muscle and his upper body is now more proportionate to his legs. How happy was Jay when the judges called Dex as 3rd? Super happy bc Branch deservingly beat him and the fact that he knew he was going to win lol, but he kept congradulating Branch. This was the best thing the judges have done in a long time. They're making a point that conditioning is now going to play a huge factor like it used too. It needs to be this way.
Dex came in as usual. It's almost like he never really tries that hard to come in super shredded bc it looks more genetic. Also, its was as though he thought was going to waltz in there and win. He has a bad attitude, no calves, and super syntholed arms. He walked off the stage ASAP to go pout.
Kai wasn't super shredded either. His posing is stupid and he hits the mandatory poses dumb. He could've been way better with more condition and better posing.
Phil "offness" became more evident as the competition progressed. He just got worse. Should've been way better. I expected his legs to be bigger. His back was much improved.
Victor was way off, but then again I thought he was back in '07 too. He never comes in super ripped. His legs looked better, but I didn't like them before the injury. He has calf implants and his quads have an odd shape with little sweep. I expected him to be better as far as conditioning bc I thought he wanted it more than ever.
