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

His calves actually look decent in that pic... I'm use to seeing these from Dexter .

I think Branch was well balanced and thin skinned on this night. Big Win for him and he hit everything right.

Other than shooting massive amounts of Synthol in his calves,
which would be very noticeable on stage & penalized by the judges, .

Not necessarily. When done properly, SEO use is not readily apparent like that.

There are plenty of before and after photos of Syntherol use where you wouldn't
suspect a thing if you didn't already know.

Branch def won on conditioning. I agree I thought EC should've taken 2nd...Wolf hadn't really improved on his weak points (lower lats, hamstrings, calves) like I'd hoped he would.

Haha of course Phil blows Branch away. IMO the only guy that has a shot at Phil in the '12 Olympia is Kai, if he comes in dry and shredded, and Phil is a little off, otherwise its 1. Phil 2. Kai. What will be interesting is to see what happens after that btwn EC, Branch, Wolf, and even Beyeke if he dials conditioning in.

Does anyone know why Kai didn't compete in the Arnold? Could've been an easy paycheck for him IMO...

I agree 100% regarding your comments about SEO's. However, if Wolf showed up onstage with calves that are suddenly much bigger with an improved shape, the accusations & negative comments would begin to fly.

But who would know? People always talk regardless there's no real basis to
penalise when the muscle looks and acts natural because it is natural when
SEOs are done correctly.

Especially since there have been numerous pros who have openly used SEOs.
Flex being the one that comes to mind first. Nasser aswell. Hasn't hurt them.

To concentrate on the Olympia
