    His chest is pretty fuckin sick considering his ROM, good for him. Great conditioning at Jr's.

    And Mike I told you in a previous thread before you contacted me about doing the in the trenches video that Rob would come in peeled did I not....?
    I will never second guess you again!

    Based on the vid we did, I thought no way. Then I saw Rob at weigh ins, pegged him for the win and asked his name, and he's like, I am Rob Roppo, and I was like, "Get the Fuck Out!"

    Congrats to Rob - Hands Down, the clear winner.

    Either way he's gonna win his weight class at the Jr Nationals which is not too shabby for 2in ranges.

    Anyone notice that how he starts his set out with a 2 inch range of motion, and then goes down and down further every rep? What's that all about?

    FYI- this is his first National show, so with that said, he looks better than I have ever seen him. He is young too, with tons of potential if he keeps working on it. Yusaf you have been a great help to him, just keep him consistant.
    As for his posing, he's learning and it takes time to get that part just right. He should be weighing in at the top of his class, but as with any show, it all depends on who else is there.

    actually the guy has some decent wheels... i train at that gym too and the lighting where he was posing sucks complete ass... plus he's not nearly as dried out as when i saw him last... i think he'll do some damage

    Def. I saw no real thickness in his legs at all from any angles. I do give him props for getting into shape and stepping on stage that is balls enough, but to be a contender legs need to be there. I won my state show in 03 and then i had a hamstring tear and when i tried to come back and my legs where not there as much as before i lost to people who i blew away before.

    I agree! His lower half from the front, side, and back is suspect. He has good potential. I just feel a lot of people on these threads be blowing smoke up people's asses. I really don't see him being a threat until he works on presentation and his lower half.
