TweetAnyone tired of seeing bloated mass monsters on stage? I know I am. Just my opinion but it's not even pleasing to see these guys anymore. It's like they try to pack on as muc muscle as they can with no rhyme or reason.
I'm looking forward to the classic physique show at the Olympia. Anyone else looking forward to this?
Tweeti like it to an extent. i dont like the fact that they limit the conditioning a bit in the rules and some of the weight limits are a tad bit low. i mean 6ft and like 215 is pretty stringy for a lot of people. maybe drop the weight limits and actual follow the rules on how the athletes look. i like the big boys to though as long as they are in shape. i have a blocky physique myself so i will never reach the pretty level.

Tweetyeah, the old school BB were certainly not as big but looked WAY better IMO. Yeah these freaks today are massive but not classy.
TweetI cant say i didnt like looking at the crazy size and conditioning of guys like Ronnie Coleman. To me, though, thats not bodybuilding. Bodybuilding was created so people would strive for a symmetrical, balanced, hard and detailed physique. Yet, one that still was pleasing to look at by most people. Someone like Branch Warren goes against every one of these points and I absolutly hate looking at the guy.
This is also the reason I believe Flex Wheeler is the best Bodybuilder to ever compete. Ronnie beat him on size and just a crazy look from the back. Flex was no joke though. He was not much smaller than Ronnie at Flex's biggest and there is no comparison if you judge who had the most pleasing physique to look at. So, juding it on what bodybuiling was "meant to be" not what it became Flex should have been Mr. O 8+ times. Dorian never and Jay Cutler never. IMO Dorian looked tons better than Jay as did several others. Jay was blocky and not proportionate. He had no hint if any type of V taper. But he had the perfect California sufer boy look to promote the sport. In 2007 Victor Matinez was entirely robbed when they, inexplicably, allowed Cultler to win again.
Do you realize how much money Victor lost because of that totally ridiculous decision?
Im a smaller guy anyway who always got by on conditioning and symmetry. A classic physique division would have been perfect for me. Just came 20 years too late.

TweetIts about time they did something like that to allow guys with a Frank Zane or Franco Columbu look to win some gold.
Having a mass monster class is still entertaining to see just how ridiculous those dudes can get, like 350 pounds and ripped to the bone is okay for entertainment purposes. I mean everybody digs seeing a freak show
