I just listened to MD RADIO #65. Dex is still facing the same enemy who has previously diminished his chances to win Jay, i.e. Dex himself. He seems to have accustomed to the idea that he is what he is and there's nothing he can do about it. If the judges don't like it then that's just the way it is.
He thinks that if Jay brings 100% there's no way of beating him no matter what. Who is putting this crap into his head? He has no hunger for the win! He seems to have given up completely. I think Dex has all the potential to win Mr. O and in a decisive manner.
He has to bring a bigger package to beat the other top guys who come in at 100%. He can sacrifice shape and even conditioning within a wide range (in order to gain size) and still beat the other guys by showing better shape and conditioning.
I think I once saw a vid in where Dex said that he only does deadlifts and squats in the smith machine to keep the waist down. Come on, he could add a couple of inches to his waist and still look like the small wasted guy. If he can in any possible way add mass he has to do it to win. Toney Freeman has gained a good amount of muscle and he is in his mid forties.
Dex is obsessed with his (secure) shape and conditioning. This is a mental issue which Dex has to overcome in order to jump at the next level. He could win the next three Mr. Os if he just does the necessary improvements.
What do you guys think? More mass in every possible way even with the risk of placing out of top five or just staying in a state of suspended animation?
