I dont get how could Farah say he is saving the best of Kai for the O... what would they do differently? would they botch this show just so he would look better at the O? doesnt make sense to me.
That is a very real decision every pro has to make, regardless of whether or not the decision is a conscience one. Speaking as a biochemist/nutritionist,bodybuilding, even on an amateur level, IS NOT HEALTHY, I dont care how you do it. The cell damage, inflammation, and the metabolism of such large quantities of food is a lot of stress on the body, there are no "what ifs" about it. Some people are able to tolerate it more than others due to higher amounts of enzymes present, but the metabolism of a high calorie diet, especially a diet high in protein becomes toxic. Nitrogen is a toxin, urea and ammonia are even more toxic, and as bbers, these pros have to deal with that biochemical reality. Becasue of these facts, farah leads me to believe that he did not push Kais training, nutrition, and drugs as far as kai was able to tolerate. In my opinion, that is an excellent decision to make.
I was personally not impressed with this showing, but I respect it based on the potential of the reasoning above being a reality. I feel like kai has yet to be as big and as conditioned as he can be at the same show. Every time I see pics a few weeks out he looks massive, then come show day he never lives up to what I expect to see.
Ronnie Coleman, he lived up to his 3 and 4 week out photo hype when it came show time.
I see what you mean Big Ben. Farah even said something about getting him healthy. They prolly were easy on the drugs compared to how he is planning on doing at the Olympia. Either way, as i mentioned before i cant see Kai being competitive for another 2 years, his gut is growing too much and his torso is too short to handle the mass. I agree though, he loses a lot of mass leading up to the show, if he is able to hold the mass he would squash everyone except for jay (who is wider then my room)
