  • Arnold Classic 2013 update

    The quality of competitionthis year was better than I expected. No was in great shape. Ben Pukowski, Dexter Jackson, and Tony Freeman got first callout. It appears that Dex has this. Tony should edge Ben based on back development. From the front Ben looks insane, but needs more thickness in the back.

    Cedric Mcmillan should have been contending for top 3, but his colr apeared off. He's adjusted tonight and looks insane. So we will see. I think he may be 4th with Johnny Jackson. Right behind him. By the way side note: I got to speak with Johnny backstage. He was a great guy and has brought up his legs a ton. Suffice it to say, His upper body is insane.

    I'll try to keep posting as long as my phone cooperates.

    I think Ben has made huge improvements with his back and conditioning. But compared to Tony and Dex his thickness is definitely lacking. Tony still has not showed striated glutes.

      I was checking out the galleries at flexonline. Johnnie's rear lat spread is insane. There's your reason to do deadlifts right there. For someone so massive it's even more impressive that he always comes in with a shredded midsection. Pakulski looks a bit sharper than The Blade in some shots, especially in the quads. Delts make me wonder, though.

        For some reason the pics online do not translate well to what I'm seeing in person. They never do though.

            I think Dex is going to take it. From all the galleries, it looks like his midsection is a little bigger than what he normally presents, but he also looks more muscular all around.

            Top 3 I'm going with:

            1) Dex
            2) Pak man
            3) Freeman

                Yeah, lighting and angles definitely affect the photos.

                Good call, mentalflex. Dex had some rough outings (for him) at this contest recently. He's tied with Flex Wheeler with 4 wins now.
