Would you sacrifice it? The late nights, the parties, the drinking, and eat whatever? Or do you have the heart and desire of a bodybuilder? On those cold winter mornings running or when you don’t have an ounce of energy, when you can’t lift no more you squeeze that last rep. I can talk about [...]
Phil Heath has done it, he retained his Mr Olympia title this year with Kai Greene fiercely competing by his side for top spot.
“Heath was in shape and brought the striated glutes we’ve come to expect, but he lacked the pop and fullness we saw in 2011. That left the door open for Greene and the two men were compared on stage to end the judging on Friday and Saturday. In the end, “The Gift’s” structure, shape, and balance were enough to carry him through to victory”. – MD.com.
Good on Kai Greene to show his strong challenge for top spot. Having said that, I think Jay Cutler would have been right up there had he not become injured. Here’s the top 8 men’s results. The Gift – Phil Heath is showing some staying power with this result. A surprise is Shawn Rhoden at 3rd spot as it’s only been 3 years since he started competing at this level. Just shows what can be achieved with the right mindset.
Here’s the results……
Watch Phil’s reaction to the win folks….that’s what body building means to him!
It’s official folks. Victor Martinez is back and he will be participating in this years Mr Olympia! As most of you already know Victor has been locked up for 7 months without proper nutrition, weights or supplements. He lost a lot of weight and dropped down to 220lbs.
How Victor plans to compete against the likes of Branch Warren, Kai Greene, Evan Centopani & Phil Heath is a true determination of the persons spirit to be at the highest level despite all the odds. With Just over 15 weeks before the competition it will be hard to gain quality muscle lost. Just think about how you feel when you don’t eat and train right for a couple of weeks? Now multiply that to 7 months and then enter yourself in Mr Olympia where every athlete is primed to another level?
MD: Victor, exactly when did you decide you would go for it, and what were the main factors that influenced your decision?
VM: The decision was more like a process that’s been going on in my head almost from the day I got out at the end of April. What it really came down to was that I just wouldn’t feel right skipping the Olympia even if the odds are against me. I’ve never let that stop me from doing anything before and I didn’t want to start now.

Got some pics for you today. Branch Warren was at the Europa show in Florida and MD have provided some photos on line. What do you think? Has Branch still got it? Of course we think so, but what do you think? The pics show Branch has some of the best looking wheels in the business.
Recently Kai Greene hit Italy and Germany on his Euro tour. Kai done some poses, autographs as you do and met some eager Italian fans. Good to see this IFBB pro inspiring fans world wide. Kai man, your arms are looking good. Size and definition all the way. Anyway here’s the video….
Thanks to MD for the video update. Kai endorses Musclemeds products. I have tried Methyl Arimatest before and the results were pretty good. There’s many brands out there so it’s good to shop around.
He was 40 when he got crowned Mr Universe way back in 1952. Manohar Aich from India turned 100 last month and as you can tell from his recent picture, he’s still in great shape. How many people look like him at 100? In his hay day he was known as the ‘pocket hercules’, standing at just 4 ft 11 ins tall. His size never stopped him from his dream, good on you Manohar!
Check out his picture when he won the Mr Universe title? Impressive?
I Still Have It!
Mr Universe Winner 1952
Manohar says his diet mainly consists of milk, fruit and vegetables along with rice, daal (lentils) and fish. He doesn’t smoke or drink whatsoever. A clean lifestyle has given him a title of body building at the highest level. So what excuses do you and I have?
