The 2012 FLEX Pro Championships are in the books. Here, IFBB Judge Steve Weinberger breaks down the top five and goes inside the marquee men?s bodybuilding matchups.
?Couldn?t have been dialed in any better. Could have been a little fuller in fact. I was surprised to hear he wasn?t going to Arizona this weekend to compete in the 212 division, which is honestly where he belongs. He doesn?t have the frame to hang with these big guys, but his conditioning was absolutely perfect.?
?If he can ever get his upper body to match his legs, he is going to be one hard guy to deal with. He could be like another Flex Wheeler. His legs were perfect, great conditioning. I felt his upper body, back in particular, could have been harder. He was a little soft in the back.?
?In the morning he looked really good. Dialed in. Could have been little fuller, was a little flat in the chest but was in really good condition. Night came along and he got a little smaller and softer and that?s why he dropped from second to third. He passed over that line and really flattened out.?
?Looked good when he first came out in the morning and was third after the prejudging. Carries a lot of muscle. His symmetry is his weakest point, size and muscularity his strongest points. Came in so much harder at night and just overtook Fouad on conditioning. If he was as hard in the morning as he was at night, he could have even given Lionel a run for his money.?
?He has amazing, thick muscle belies and great shape. He still has that Flex Wheeler effect where he?s a little bit watery. But his shape and muscularity was overpowering all day. He did win that show pretty convincingly in my opinion, but to do well at the Arnold he?s going to have to bring that body in a lot sharper to match up with the other guys. But great shape, good conditioning, just a little watery. He just looked a little spongy. He definitely improved his stage presence from a year ago, he looked a lot more confident.?
