    I'm going to start squatting in the incline bench. It's like curling in the squat rack but opposite.

    I'm not discounting all the work these guys put into it, but honestly, modern bodybuilders look like absolute garbage.

    It's not about looking attractive, go watch Physique if you wanna see that. I think Heath deserved it but I'm bummed Jay and Kai didn't do better.

    I know it's not about looking attractive, but it's still ridiculous.

    Any of the physique competitors looked better than Heath.

    And Kai fucks fruit, what is that? That whole industry is wacked.

    I wanted big rammy to win because he's like 300lb on stage and it would be pretty cool for a first time competitor to win. Surprised jay placed so lowly.


    I kind of do the dan green thing with my knees, feels very natural. Just sit really far back and kind of pull your knees around you and then as you stand up pull your knees forward with your hips, don't know if that really explains it well. I find oly shoes really useful with a wide stance squats, stop you from falling forward, and allows you to involve more quads.


    I put flys as a my third movement on my press day after db flat bench and db overhead press. I could do them 2nd though it wouldn't make that much difference.

    Anyone here have any experience with fitness-related non-profits? I'm thinking about starting one up once my GMAT studying is done.

    I've started doing this, it definitely works, give it a try.


    This. Find another gym if you can dude.


    Rhoden looked pretty good to be honest, got that tight waist, but he won't be winning like that.

    My favorite part was when the commentator was talking about how Ramy had only been training three years and put on 80lb on muscle in that time, "he's just got good genetics, everything grows" ... yea ok :lol:

    To be fair he does still have to have exceptional genetics. Even with an ungodly amount of gear he's not going to put on that much muscle without amazing genetics. No one else in the Olympia has only been training for 3 years.

    That's like announcing to the world that Michael Jordan is the best basketball player ever.

    Squat form check. Still figuring out what works best for me. I can stay completely upright up until 155lbs, have to break at the hips with anything heavier.
    Any pointers?
