    He was probably in better shape as a young bodybuilder at the picture shown in the video. At 100% he's up there with An Nguyen who got very nice placings this year. Hopefully they figure this out with John. From what I read they're happy with package Ken brought and that's kind of weird but... nobody will remember if he kills it next year.
    Lance Armstrong is a winner.

    Pretty cool that he played with Tom Brady and Charles Woodson.

    Ken looked very good at Tampa, not sure what pictures you are looking at. Could have been a little dryer, but his hams and glutes were in. He has beautiful shape. He need more size, but that comes with time. Not sure why its weird that they were happy with this.

    I don't get why it would be weird either. Though he wasn't the biggest guy on stage, he improved over his last couple outings and that's all you can ask for. I doubt any of them were expecting Ken to win the show.

    I edited and shot this video myself, so I hope you guys like it... I did my best!

    We are very happy with how Ken did, and if you see the progress from the last show to Tampa, then you already know that John and Ken have really taken a big step forward on knowing Ken's body. I think Ken's condition in Tampa was spot on. He just needs more size. He made big steps forward this year, and I believe with John's help and our support, he's destined to be a top guy in shows like the Tampa Pro in 2015.

    More than any of that though, we brought on Ken because of what kind of MAN he is. I hope this video gave you all a glimpse into that.

    I have heard this comparison a lot with Ken and Phil, and I agree. Obviously Ken is missing around 20lbs of muscle to be Phil's size, but he's got the most important part (and one impossible to create): shape! Ken's physique is without a doubt one of the best proportioned and aesthetic in the pro ranks. If he can get on stage at 240 on day, instead of 220, then who knows how far he could go!

    Very true Aaron and this was his first year working with John and he made great gains. From this point out he will only get better and better. He didn't look 100% at Sacramento, but John needed to learn his body and that is why they did 2 shows back to back. Talked today and he is loving the rebound he is getting.

    Ken seems like an outstanding guy and father. Wish him the best. I also agree that his structure and lines are outstanding. He will thicken up working with John.

    Totally agree, his shape is crazy... Adding 20lbs wouldnt ruin his lines at all, looks like he can definitey carry it well.

    good strategy. There is more to it than just contest placings. Personality, fan base etc all count.

    He has great shape and structure. Most importantly, he seems to be improving.

    He will do very well with what ever it takes to fill up his frame. Its so hard to judge it by pounds,but he looks good.
