Mr. Olympia 2009


  • Mar 29, 2009 8:09 PM GMT
    This year is going to the the most competitive Mr. Olympia that the sport has seen in years. So many great competitors and with the return of Kai Greene and Victor Martinez to the stage, its sure to be an awesome show.

    Two questions

    1. Who in your opinion will be the top 3
    2. Who plan on going. It is the last weekend in September.

    I am definitely going. I will be there from Wednesday through Sunday.
    Definitely looking for other guys to meet and hang out with.


    Since I asked the question I will give my opinion of the top 3

    Dexter Jackson
    Kai Greene
    Victor Martinez

    My guess would be the same 3 that were in the top 3 last year. At the Olympia level, they seem to be the most difficult spots to break. Remember wayyyy back in the day when it was always Dorian, Flex, and Shawn Ray?

    I'd love to see in the top 3, though:

    Ronny Rockel -- can a guy be any hotter? Damn!
    Phil Heath -- well, maybe a guy could be hotter if he were Phil Heath. Yum!
    Lee Priest -- is he going to compete in the O this year? Anyone know yet?

    muchmorethanmuscle saidLee Priest ripped a bicep tendon while moving some furniture. From what I read he doesn't look like he'll be competing again until 2010.

    I personally don't like how he got crazy with all of those tattoos. I like tattoos but if I were going to be a competitive bodybuilder like Priest I would refrain from all those tattoos.


    Yeah, he kinda went Mike Tyson with the tattoos. I hope he doesn't gnaw off anyone's ear between protein drinks.

    I really haven't followed the sport much since Dorian Yate's first win. While I still deeply respect the dedication these guys have, I'm not into the current aesthetic. It just stopped being fun for me to watch sometime before Lee Haney left the scene when the monstermorphs really started to hit their stride.

    That sucks about Lee's bicep tear. He's always been one of my favorites. Arms never quite look the same after a tear. Look at Branch Warren's.

    I sure wouldn't mind helping him heal, though.

    Man, I can't get enough of the new aesthetic. For me, the bigger the better.. Though I find beauty in all the body types, the big ones just immediately turn me on.

    These days that isn't good enough. Prolific use of site enhancing oil (SEO) is also required.

    Show me the dickicon_exclaim.gif

    "Ronny Rockel -- can a guy be any hotter? Damn!" - yes a guy with a dick would be hotter

    "Phil Heath -- well, maybe a guy could be hotter if he were Phil Heath." Yum! where's the dick?

    I just wish they could inject some roids into their big clits!

    I'm afraid some folks here are very ignorant. AAS will make your penis LARGER, and your gonads smaller, until the AAS are stopped, at which time the gonads return to slightly larger than before the AAS was started as the body tries to maintain what it was accustomed to. Testosterone is, after all, what makes us male. Endogenous testosterone is produced almost exclusively via the male gonads, and so if there's exogenous testosterone present, some testicular atrophy (gonads / balls ) occurs (not the penis which actually gets large in the presence of testosterone). Testicular atrophy is not permanent, and will completely return to normal is less than a month.

    The transition takes from about 2 weeks to 30 days (generally around 18 days or so). Whether the person was using for weeks, months, or years, the body rebounds in just days.

    With other non-steroidal hormones, like thyroid, even after 30 years of use, studies have shown the body bounces back in less than a week. There have been a number of studies done on mis-diagnosed thyroid patients.

    More misinformation and ignorance from those who are like that.

    This stuff is well documented by major schools, and famous doctors and is all over The Internet.

    That's why NO SCIENTIFIC body has EVER recommended for the control of AAS. In fact, quite the contrary.

    Lee Priest burned too many bridges a few years back and now is a bit too beat up and injured to win. He was amazing 5-6 years ago but I guess considered too small back then and he is not any bigger now.

    History says Dexter will repeat. Winners almost allows repeat with a few exceptions like Samir Bannout, Franco Columbo, but he was at the end of his career.

    Dexter. Kai in second place. Victor Martinez in third only because he is like Flex Wheeler, great genetics but who knows how he will show up.

    I really prefer the smaller guys but they will not win. Dexter is the closest to the new "ideal" of not crazy huge but still big.

    I love Jay but his time has passed. He had a good shot for a few years, won a few, but time passed him by.

    Buffhunk64 saidThey guy who takes the most steriods will win. Just an observation.


    Not a very accurate predictor. While steroids are necessary for everyone to complete on this playing field, it is never a matter of whoever takes the most wins. The juice is going to open the door to the gains, but training and genetics take it from there.

    I learned this waaaay back when my roomies at the time where doing cycles back in the 90's. All three of us did the exact same dosages at the exact same times. I know, I was the one who administered them because the other two were pussies when it came to needles. We all worked out together and did the same routine, but our response to the juice varied wildly. One of us had very small gains compared to me even though he was working out just as hard as me and eating right. The other was practically napping during every set, ate nothing but junk food out of vending machines all day long and had almost the same results as I had.

    Some people are just genetically predisposed to build more muscle and respond better to the AAS and all the other goodies out there. Some people train harder and smarter than the rest of the crowd. The guy that has both going for him is going to be the winner.

    Why do they even bother with holding this event? It continues to evolve into nothing more than a steroid freak show. IMO, there's nothing interesting about watching chemically-enhanced human ticks walk around in a posing strap.

    I'm just glad the bloated bellies are gone. Or at least I think they are. Haven't really noticed them in recent years.

    Muscleheads will always get my attention. It has to be in the genes, I guess. When I was a kid, it was my ideal and my goal.

    Now that I am, ahem, more mature, I find I am attracted to all sorts of physiques, provided there's a level of fitness in there somewhere.

    Never dated a really huge guy and would obviously like the opportunity. But that's like saying I'd like to date Jason Statham or Brad Pitt--ain't gonna happen.

    As for the pros, I think we've gone too far in the pursuit of mammoth size. Maybe the saddest example right now is a young amateur from Georgia named Trey Brewer. In the collegiate contests, he had size and symmetry. Then he fell in with some trainers who put him on massive steroid injections. Now he's just a beefy tank who would do better as a pro wrestler. With the bitch tits and crazy veins, he looks grotesque.

    I'm not saying we should return to the days of Steve Reeves and Frank Zane, because they are small by today's standards, but there should be some common sense applied in the pursuit of what is accepted as an "ultimate" physique.
