If JOJ was sharper he could have taken the show! Even his legs seemed to have improved.

^ that and more sweep to his quads, and yea he can win it all.

Well, looking again at Tarek's rxm pics, i think he will place better than JOJ, but his back double bicep still sucks.

I'm confused as to why some of you are saying that JOJ looks his best.... I have seen him much better and wouldn't even consider him for top 3

Yeah, I was wondering about that too. He's soft as hell - looks like he's 5-6 weeks out. He is pretty much the least conditioned guy in the show.

The Bens have the condition...everyone else, not so much. Disappointing show imo.

I think Paluski and Abiad look the best, but even Abiad isn't at his best.

take any of these guys and put them at the mr O, noone would be at top 10.

What does that have to do with their conditioning at this show? i know they wont do too well in the Olympia but they are pretty ripped in this contest.

Some of the ugliest waists I have ever seen onstage! Excuse me for a few minutes, gotta go puke......


Most of these guys look like just a bunch of bodyparts thrown together. UGLY!!!





PS: Tim, aren't you glad we aren't bodybuilders???

I have to agree that these are some of the most average high level competitors I've seen in awhile. So many are lacking any sort of balanced development, couple even have no backs.

Fouad looked more like a winner to me, but in the better quality pics he may not have been as sharp as DJ, even though DJ really doesn't look that great.

JoJ still has nothing below his knee, a big "flabby" ass and short arms. He could hide the arms a bit if he posed them differently.

IMHO top 3 should have been Fouad, Pakulsky, DJ.Except for Tarek and JOJ all the others look like crap, nasty structures, no aestethycs at all, and WTF at Frank McGrath tricep, his arm looks weird, what a wrong comeback.

I think Dennis James used a LOT of oil... too much IMO.

Did Abiad got robbed? Maybe, but I still have DJ in first place.
