Comment on any of the following:

What do u think will be the placement of the top 6 or 7 for the Olympia?

Who will have the most size? most definition?

What new-comer are you looking forward to seeing?

Ronnie retiring?

People on this bodybuilding site don’t take too kindly to well, bodybuilding.

I see Jay taking it again and Ronnie possibly slipping to third sadly behind Victor Martinez. After that Dexter Jackson and then it gets real screwy so I won’t even try.

I’m interested to see how Dennis Wolf does in the show as he has looked very impressive through pictures but that doesn’t always translate to stage(Dennis James anyone ha).

Also looking out for my man David Henry who likely won’t place all that well but is still one of my favorites competing.

Dennis Wolf may crack the top 6! The Olympia is mostly about mass and Dennis is massive and with a small waist looks cartoon freak like…

Oh man you beat me to the punch, I just signed on to start a thread.

How do I see it? Being that it’s Ronnies last Olympia, he’s pretty much promised at least a second place finish.

The trend of smaller more defined physiques seems to have disappeared of late so I don’t see Dexter getting third over Victor.

Here’s my top five
1-Cutler
2-Coleman
3-Martinez
4-Baddell
5-Jackson

Jimmy

the olympia USED to be about mostly mass, in recent years they have explicitly stated that they are putting less emphasis on mass and more emphasis on aesthetics like symmetry and muscle maturity.

my tops are:

  1. jay cutler
  2. ronnie coleman
  3. victor martinez
  4. tony freeman
  5. dexter jackson

There was a quote in Flex Magazine by Toney Freeman a couple of months ago. He said he wants to get up to 305 pounds, and he said if he doesn’t win the 2008 O, he’ll retire.

From what I know, he’s getting up there in age (41), so his chances are getting slimmer by the year.

What happened to Ahmad Haidar? Why is he not competing this year?

Cutler’s in the best shape of his life. His physique is great both in mass and aesthetics.

He’s looking pretty good I’d say…

I am no bodybuilding expert but I always read about Johnny Jackson through powerlifting and am impressed by his physique but never hear anything about his Olympia standings? Why?

1st- some guy who pumped himself full of steroids
2nd- some guy who pumped himself full of steroids
3rd- some guy who pumped himself full of steroids
4th- some guy who pumped himself full of steroids
5th- some guy who pumped himself full of steroids
6th- some guy who pumped himself full of steroids
7th- some guy who pumped himself full of steroids
8th- some guy who pumped himself full of steroids
9th- some guy who pumped himself full of steroids

259,346,871st place - some guy with a humongous sized COCK!

Why click on a thread about a topic you don’t want to seriously talk about? We want to talk about professional bodybuilding here so if you don’t want to go talk somewhere else on the form. It’s not hard.

In my opinion:

1 - Jay
2 - Ronnie
3 - Martinez
4 - Dexter
5 - Wolf

He’s placed 11th and 13th the last two years I believe. It just goes to show at that level show someone as impressive as Johnny’s physique is just isn’t even close.
