    Glutes are the most important muscle group in bodybuilding.

    He decisively won every pose except the bdb, rls, and the side tri. That makes him the clear winner.

    I would have liked Curry to win. From the waist down to me Ben looks like an Ifbb pro, but from the waist up I just don't see it.

    Question for David Baye: I was at the show yesterday but not today....Was the IFBB judging panel the same today as yesterday? (I mean, was it the 5 Canadian judges and no one from down south?)

    Maxx Charles missing from top 4 very odd. Of course, IFBB judges are not accountable for their decisions, so we won't learn their reasoning.

    Great showing for Ben. I see Curry destroying Ben from the back though; and I don't see Ben's advantage from the front that distinctive, especially given his top-bottom imbalance. Nonetheless, Pak brought a great package for him tonight.

    Apparently not...but consider who else was there too. Personally I would have liked to see Brandon be a bit sharper and him taking 1st...but he wasn't. Pacman did correct his gut issues, has world class legs and delts...his triceps are good...it's just the back is subpar (always has been) and those biceps from the front don't look good at all compared to the genetic marvel that is Brandon.

    I agree with your assessment...Brandon Curry was good and I believe the reason he didn't win was Pacman had better overall conditioning and that judging panel rewarded that over the God given genetics and shape. I'm no fan of Pacman but he did have Curry on conditioning...Brandon has only himself to blame. He should have been sharper than Chicago and won this show.

    Hahahaha!!! Very true!! And we all know if there is any one who gets the crown for the most "gifts" is your truly - Branch Warren.... Dont get me started!! As much as I like JOJ, sorry but in my opinion not no top 5 guy here and yea in last few showings he has been been bumped up more than a place or two. Dont care if he is a vet of the sport etc, you the judges, your taking money out of someone else packet who deserved to be up a slot and more!! How about we start to penalize the judges that are really off in there placings?? How about we fine them $$?? Think the'll start to be more fair??! There just killing our sport for their our satisfactions and screw the people who deserve to be placed where they belong! If there is one thing I hate seeing is out rite obvious poor placings that we all see but these trained, say they know what their doing judges dont! TIME SOMETHING IS DONE!!!!

    This has to be the weakest lineup of any pro show this season. Ben winning says a lot about the competition.
