ahahahahaha you're right
These guys go through so many shows, so many preps, they know how they respond to certain things....I'm not sure why Pros have any trainers at all. They are so experienced with their own bodies..I would think that they know best for themselves. What can a "guru" (who knows you for only the length of time that you've been trining with them) tell you that you don't already know?
I hope Wolf does good for himself in his prep for Olympia. I'll be anxious to see how it turns out.
Wolf seems to change his approaches too often.
Maybe he's suffering under the same syndrome as Maxmunzter.

bla bla bla bla, he is just crying, please WOLF STOP CRYING and train till you puke, everybody is punishing you in terms of lower back and calves you were adviced of the situation and since you did not make any improvement in the past two years you are being penalyzed for this. So this is not a guru problem is jut the way you trained. Everybody knows that you were your own dietician but yourself but man you should train a lot these ares in which you are being so punished. Train Wolf, and please next time try to produce a video where motivate everyone with tons of HARDCORE action, and ass-heavy duty training. \
Sincerly a Kai and Phil Fan
Ahmed Haider had it & Wolfe has it.... their upper & outer lats have plenty of mucle cells but almost nothing in the inner lower lats... IMO its not his lower back per se thats the issue, its his inner & lower lats!
Compare him with someone who is gifted with tons of inner & lower lats, Kai Greene and you'll see what I mean. IMO Wolfe can look good if he comes in sharp & full but he will never be able to fill that acres of gap between his lats!
Yes Kai has low insertions and as a result a larger muscle belly. But it also makes for a very unpleasing, undefined, detracting back. It makes him look stubby, thick waisted and as though he has a very short torso. He doesn't improve this with his posing either.
Now Wolf does have a higher insertion, but so do most BBers/people. But the part of the muscle directly under the arm is not actually lats!! That is Teres Major! Refer to the diagram below to see what I mean.
So Wolf has spent a heap of time building up his back in a manner that has not really developed the lats. Now I haven't seen any papers or anatomy that suggests that there is any "lower" or "inner" lats, but like the pec (another fan shaped muscle) there is seperate innervation for 6 sections (pec 2 heads) thus you can have lats that are not developed in the lower portion if you aren't exercising the lats properly. Deadlifts would help, as the lats act as a back stabiliser but also because he doesn't do them or really lift heavy with a full ROM. It is not as easy as saying deadlifting will fix his back of course, as he still needs to work the lats using rows and vertical pulls (I love chinups/pullups but apparently anyone over 90kg isn't allowed to do them because they are too Hoouge), but it will help.
Also the entire "inner" and "outer" and "lower" thing just needs to be eliminated from discussions. It only perpetuates myths. Now obviously you're not perpetuating the myth that Wolf could somehow target an "inner lat" as you are saying his genetics suck, but some will read it as such.
