    Branden Ray has perfect shape, but looks like he is lacking conditioning. Hope he can bring it together.

      Jude,

      How are you able to tell his conditioning is lacking?

      Thanks

        I have been judging for awhile now. I am just going by his look in his tank top. It is the reason he lost the USA. I hope he can get the detail that he needs. I am a fan of his look.

          Gonna be a good class. Good luck to Brandon, he seems like a good guy. I personally think Mike Yablon will win... check out his video from 3.5 weeks out... he's thick, granite and shredded.

            As far as the guy that made the comment about ebonics, the purpose of language is communication. If no one understands what you are trying to convey, you words that manifest your thoughts will never be processed. Sad part about it is that I probably have more formal education than you combined with lessons in life. This allows me versatility to communicate in so many different arenas from md message boards to the streets of Oakland and Brooklyn to the long halls of the Library of Congress. For now on if I ever want to communicate with Swede, I will manifest my thoughts with a vernacular that will not be associated with any sort of stereotypical and or debasing and derogatory connotation associated with race or economics to essentalize...if it makes you happy, however, I am very proud of where I came from...and really look forward to where I'm going.
            Good luck Brandon but please... It can't stand next to you on any stage. That's all that matters.

              I AGREE, HE NEEDS TO GET LEANER FAST IF HE WANTS TO WIN

                My my Branden, you are quite the cunning linguist.

                I believe your display of linguist prowess and phonetic ability have beyond a doubt displaced any misconceptions of you as anything less than an educated and capable human being.

                I myself have had the misfortune of my ability being shortchanged by my outward appearance of a heavily accented New Yorker, somewhat muscular physique, as well as my labor intensive profession. Most wouldn't garner a guess that I'm well read, an aspiring writer and college educated.

                But then again I suppose most muthafuckas ain't on our level is they? Ayy fuhgeddaboudit.

                  Im not knocking Tamer as is shape and conditioning is superb, but its just something about the shoulders that just throws my eye off. Instead of wanting to look at his overall physique i cant stop looking at his shoulders? Any way good luck to B ray and may the best man win. IMO i hope it comes down to B ray and Seth. Both phenominal physiques in their own right
