Sad thing is just trying to lose weight to gain back the conditionning of old, DOES NOT work either! Once you have put on more muscles (via Pharmacopia cocktails) you cannot just simply say that you would taper off of 'chemicals' and get back to your old look... WONT HAPPEN!
Jay wont ever again look anything like he does in pics posted by Coach... no matter what he does!
I DO think he can come close to 2009 conditionning and fulness... but thats a big if and next years Phil will definatelky be bigger and better!
Jay not only has muscle atrophy issues to deal with but also some structural issues too... for example he cannot hit his front lat spread like he used... theres something wrong with his shoulders or maybe something that Farnsworth spotted... long story short Jay has more issues now than oppertunities... also from his interview to Shawn Ray in Mumbai I dont think he believes he can beat Phil now... so I dont think he is ever coming back to the Olympia stage! We might however see him at ASC!
Here is my take on it... Phil looked like a cartoon character this year. However I just don't know how much more mass can fit on Phil's frame. That being said we all know that Jay has the frame and capability to come in at 280+ absolutely diced. If he pulls a "Coleman 2003" look it over cause Phil will be dwarfed by that and Kai can't seem to come in hard enough when his weight is up that high.
