    DAMN!, I know we still have 4 weeks till the Mr.O, but to me Vic doesn't look like he is gonna nail his conditioning.

    Wow, compared to Phil's 4 week out guest posing Victor looks to be about 8 weeks out. His gut is still very much out there too.
    Tim Martin over Levrone? I still can't stop laughing.

    I was there tonight. No disrespect to Victor, he's an amazing bodybuilder, but he was a bloated mess. It's sad when a potential Mr. Olympia guest poses at a state level show, and is 3 weeks out, and is EASILY out-conditioned by at least 50% of the AMATEURS competing in the show! Come on, Vic, you're supposed to be one of the best in the world! His skin was thick, no striations, no vascularity (little bit in the arms), and really not much separation at all. He's going to have to pull a miracle out of his ass.

    sounds like whatever cardio he's doing isnt working. he better double or even triple it.

    well I was really all hyped up to see Vic especially after Gregg V most recent thread about Vic and his trainer Munoz. But now im a bit dissapointed as im rooting for Vic and Phil to make a big Imapct at the O. But not to sure about Vic now. (FUUUUCCCCKKKK) wELL hOPEFULLY Phill takes the Mr. O this year.

    Comparing Victor to Victor not anyone else, I think he looks very good. Especially his back. His quads will always be a problem. it is a matter of conditioning for him as all of you already know.

    he still could do ok, top 5 maybe.

    Not saying his condition is near phils but we saw pictures of phil and video of vic, plus lighting differences i think its hard to say.

    Victor just doesnt have the same mass as the other guys in my opinion.

    I just now saw the pics from Phils last guest pose and he looks way harder.... the lighting wasnt good for Victor here... he seems behind.
    Well well hope he gets into good condition for Victor

    maybe he looked "bloated" on purpose, or maybe he doesn't give a shit, and want's to save all the water/salt/Rx manipulation for the real show, not some guest posing.

    This is a really good point guys.....
    You also don't know how much or what he's eating, so you really can't judge whether or not its just dormant fooding bloating him out.

    On a side note, Vic looks MUCH bigger than ever before.

I think Victor has a chance at taking Kai's spot at the O. Just my .02
    he was OFF that show.
    and I have no doubt that Victor will be ready come show time. 4 weeks is an eternity

    I wish pros would stay closer to contest shape in the offseason. If you're a top bodybuilder it only makes sense to stay in good shape for appearances/guest posing, not only that but it makes your prep that much easier.

    Look at Jay, stays lean year round and is ready for the show 2-3 weeks out. Maintaining condition is a lot easier than getting in condition, at that point you can play around with your macros/"supps" and see what dials you in best. Whereas waiting until the last minute is not only the most stressful, but the least effective because at that point it's just a guessing game.

    Jay at 4 weeks out last year:
