    Default PBW: DID THE JUDGES GET IT RIGHT IN COLUMBUS? (Listen Now)



    PBW:
    DID THE JUDGES GET IT RIGHT IN COLUMBUS? (Listen Now)



    A new Pro Bodybuilding Season kicked off with a history-making weekend in Ohio’s capital city, but some fans are asking if the judges got it right. – An “apples vs oranges” showdown between 2 veterans emerged as the weekend’s biggest story, but an impressive showing by a 26 year old rising star may prove to be the most important story of the event. The 2015 Arnold Classic Post-Show Report is now available, courtesy of MD!

    Do you guys think Dexter will make this his last year? This would seem like a nice way to go out and still walk away with his health.

    Thanks goodness they can't take away Arnold's press pass or ban him for speaking his mind about the judging today

    Hope this helps.
    Why? What did Arnold say?
    BIG CALVES MEAN EVERYTHING. . .

    Why shouldn't you blame judges for awarding shity looking bodybuilders like branch. this is the reason why nobody gives a shit about bodybuilding because kids today don't want to look like all of these ulgy fucks on cover of magazine's unless who put someone on a cover like Cedric who has a physique that people can't actually appreciate and want to strive to look like

    Let me guess, the crew on the radio show unanimously agree that the judges got it right?

    The judges and powers that be have created a culture of fear for those who make their living from the competitive side of BB. Arnold spoke the truth on behalf of many who cannot feasibly stand up and state their true feelings.

    Branch deserved his 2nd place. Dexter deserved the win but Cedric would have won in the right condition.
    TEAM QUADRO!!!
    TEAM WOLF!!!

    Cedric condition was good. was it better than branch or Dexter no but was it that much of a difference .i don't think so and besides Cedric should win because he beat them both in just about every pose ,he has a better overall flow to his physique and structurally he's much bigger then them.for example look at flex wheeler he was never the most conditioned guy but he had the best physique and look at andres munzer arguably the most conditioned bodybuilder ever but did he ever beat flex as far as i'm considered no .condition is a huge factor but when up against perfection it shouldn't be enough

    Your probably right that's why steve Weinberger and rest of the judging panel need to go .not sure if you heard what shawn ray said but he suggested that the judging panel should change every time at the Arnold and olympia sounds awesome to me

    I agree with you that fourth is a slap in the face. Cedric's potential is incredible, I just hope we can deliver....he is close to nailing it.

    (now Wolf found the formula after taking that beating)
    when everyone is off condition then muscle should take precedent which Cedric had over everybody.
    Uh, NO! It's a MUSCLE contest first and foremost! It's the basis of bodyBUILDING!
    Conditioning should only be considered once the foundation is established and meets aesthetic criteria.

    condition and balance is always needed in judging criteria this day but must be fair across the board, it seems like certain guys they want to come in diferent ways.
    Who ever said it was an either/or situation? I'm talking about a specific set of criteria whereby muscle size, shape, symmetry and balance are tenets that make up the aesthetic whole, and must come before finishing touches like conditioning, tan, oil, presentation.

    Without the foundational tenets, it's not a bodybuilding (muscle) show.
    These were the foundations that the art/sport were built on, and we need to get back to them.

    A house won't stand on a poor foundation.
