Doesn't Branch get a Hummer H1 too?

I looked at the pics at flexonline, and Branch won on conditioning, and his legs, particularly from the back. Wolf looked better in the front, and actually shows some peaks on his rear double bi poses, but his calves don't exist, and he doesn't have the same conditioning in his hammies that Branch has.

Wolf has GOT to do something about those calves. No body should be able to win a pro compeition with calves like that, IMO. He looked pretty good otherwise.

Can someone explain to me why Branch has absolutely NO peak on his rear double bicep pose? Is he turning his hands forward or something? That's bizarre to me.

It was a good show. I watched both the pre-judging and the finals live on webcast. Branch was the best, but the other top guys weren't there (i.e., Phil and Kai). Wolf was visibly pissed with 2nd, but he wasn't the best. I thought EC (3rd) was better than him. How about the guy who was doing his FIRST pro show? Looks like he coulda waited for the Olympia LOL. IMO, Phil blows Branch away.

It surely must been one tight race alright...Branch just barely squeaked by with the win but Phil can possibly beat Branch if he gets on point for the O, which is like 6 months out. A great field of contestants this year so it was quite a lively show

Do you even bother educating yourself on subject matter before you spout off? Wow!

I was hoping wolf would go postal but alas...

Fully agree on Centopanni. He looked flawless...

Other than shooting massive amounts of Synthol in his calves, which would be very noticeable on stage & penalized by the judges, there is nothing Wolf can do about his calves... they just won't grow. But calves don't make or break a pro bodybuilder... Dexter Jackson has won 3 Arnolds & 1 Olympia with zero calves.

Agree that DJ's were weak.... but not in the class of Wolf's...

Interesting... I would like to see some video clips, because I've only seen the flexonline pics, and EC didn't look at good as I thought he would. Sometimes the pics don't tell the story.

Branch also won I think another 10K for most muscular as well as the first place, and best posing.

Right now, the knock on him is his chest. It's rather KBD'ish...
