    While I agree, he prolly had the most mass and therefore won the show. Evan and Wolf were ripped to shit and looked hard as hell, too. Just not as much mass did 'em in.
    Most times I find that stupid people don't know they're fucking stupid unless you tell 'em they are.

    Thumbs up Well deserved win

    Although my earlier predictions prior to the show had Victor winning and Branch 2nd. I could not be happier for Branch. He such worked hard to bring up every body part that his critics pointed out. You have to respect a guy who paid his dues. His hardcore training has paid off big time. Yes, many pros at this level train hard, but truthfully some go through the motions. Not this guy! It is great to see hard work pay off and I believe this is why so many fans and those in the sport really like Branch Warren!

    No way his calves are the size of Dexters! Heck Dexter's calves are bigger than Wolf's. Just check. That left calf of Wolfs is deformed. Dick brain what show was you watching?

    Because someone has come close so many times they shouldn't be awarded a win. If that is the case they should have rolled out the O to Kevin, Flex and Shawn. Branch was conditioned, presented big mass but wasn't the best in terms of what "used" to be bodybuilding. But under today's standards he gets the win. Big at all cost gets the "W"

    Exactly, this is bodybuilding, you wanna win the show, you better build the muscle, and come in shredded, like Branch

    There is immanent need for people to reconsider their thoughts. I think it is totally absurd to put 6-time Mr. Olympia winner into same dimension with one time Arnold Classic champion. When Yates was champion, he dominated. Branch Warren can barely hold this title of Arnold Classic as we all can see - most of people are shocked.

    Whatever one say, it is obvious that Arnold Classic is private competition.

    Vince Gironda, original trainer of champion, would roll in his grave if he knew that a guy with 0 aesthetic won.

    Judging should be based on a visible cumulative of points, branch would have something like...

    Muscularity : 10/10
    Cuts : 9/10
    Aesthetic : -5/10

    Pro's to train hard, but they are not all equal. Branch does outwork most pros, same as Dorian did.

    And as far as that post by jerdawg made, Branch can thank god all he wants, you people who dont believe thats your own damnation, dont drag others down with you.

    Default Arnold classic 2011

    I think Branch was a deserving winner and so congratulations to him!

    Personally i had Victor 2nd and i thought 3rd & 4th was a toss up between Evan and Wolf and Dexter just wasn't in the running.

    So it will be interesting to see how Branch stands up to Jay, Phil and Kai if they are all at 100% at the Olympia.

    But for me, thats the top 4 right there!

    when people say that Branch trains hard- what they mean is that he went from a very blocky monster of 5 years ago to now a more aesthetically pleasing competitor. His genetics gave him muscle and mass but his hard work allowed him to become more symmetrical. He may still not be as perfect as Vic, but he did transform a once too blocky physique into a pleasing champion. So what you will but Branch deserves credit for taking a hard look into the mirror and changing what he didn't like. Most guys think they are already perfect.

    I was referring to the professional adult Branch of 5 years ago.
