For this comparison I thought it's better to have its own thread. So here it is, Phil Heath's progress from 2012 to 2013. What did he improved on and what are your opinions?

I'll add daily one pic.

Awesome comparison tkD! Thanks for sharing! Hard to tell if it's just the slight differences in poses, but I'd say he's slightly improved lats, triceps and traps. I think I like his tan/color in the picture on the right better than the left...makes him pop a bit more I think. He's a BEAST and looks awesome as usual! :)

Next pic, side chest progress from 2012 to 2013. He may be posing a bit differently, but the hams in the 2013 (right) pic are insane!

Next comparison, back double biceps. 2012 on the left and 2013 on the right. In my opinion in 2013 it looks that he lost a bit of separation and details compared to 2012. What do you think? :smile1:

He made inprovements in size, but his definition is just a little bit off comparing 2012. But still easily beating the competition.
Im i the only one who thinks that Kai didnt deserve to be 2nd this year? If you compare him to last year he was bigger, but less shredded from tris, abs, BACK (latspread), serratus and playing the size game with smaller traps... :S just my thoughts

I agree. Phil was a little bigger this year, you can see it especially in the hams from the side and overall leg, but back details are not as deep as the previous year or 2011, which in my opinion is still his best version ever.

As for Kai, many are saying that Dennis Wolf deserved 2nd. In some shots I would agree, but overall I really don't know. Anyway it was close.

Also true! Wolf made improvements, but if you compare him with Kai.... hard to say

Phil Heath is still betting bigger and improving. But I am expecting Kai to win next year if he gets proper conditioning.
