Vic's legs haven't been that great since his injury. I don't remember them ever being that great, could have always done with another plate on the squat bar.
Remember that Vic is older than Jay. He is not a young guy anymore. Next year he'll be 39. It is questionable if there is room for improvements at that age. Sure he can do what Dex and Toney have done for years. That is to bring the same package everytime, but no improvements. If he wants to be competetive the only thing he can do is to come in ripped.
There really are no bodybuilders who have peaked after 35. Sure Ronnie was still competetive after 35, but personally I think Ronnie looked better when he was 35 than when he was 39. Sure he was fricking huge, but he also had a huge midsection. Jay looked better in his early thirties than now. Dexter Jacson peaked about five-six years ago if not earlier. Personally I think that we have seen the best of Branch Warren two years ago. Markus Ruhl peaked before he was 35.
When you consider that there are guys like Phil and Wolf who are in their early thirties (Phil 31 and Wolf 32) and making improvements it is not sure if Vic can challenge them. I just think we have already seen the best what Vic has to offer. That injury just came at a very bad time. **** happens.
Look at Dexter 12 years ago. I think he looked better back then than when he won the Olympia in 2008.
touri needs to work on his glutes and hams .he was a bit off and the tan was very bad .i tought he was going to come bigger than at the worlds amateur because it's a tested show.anyway it's his first pro competition and only the fact that he stood next to the biggest name of the sport is an honor to moroccan bodybuilding.
@Paki, i think he looks great but he has the structure of a 202 bodybuilder. In the opens he will never hang. He actually reminds me of Alexey with less potential. Alexy has the same triceps and shoulder structural issues, they both have a super low (wide?) chest (its a good thing im just pointing out similarities). And a lil narrow in the quadriceps (although alexey has good inner thigh which gives him decent overall legs).
I think he looks pretty good in those pics... just look at his back WOW!
