    Default Jay and Kulco at NPC Charlotte, NC

    I attended the Oct 15 NPC contest this past weekend in Charlotte.

    Steve Kulco was the featured guest poser .
    Coming off last months' Olympia effort, Kulco was still in decent condition.
    He may not have been a top 10 in the Olympia, but OMG!
    Kulco hovered around 300 lbs with some cuts and abs. Unreal!
    Had to be one of the roundest and thickest pros I've ever seen live.
    Great legs with HUGE calfs. Should be a top 6 at next years Olympia.

    Jay was working his booth , greeted fans and addressed the night show crowd.
    I was able to speak with him , just before the evening finals.

    Jay's 43 now, and very healthy looking ,with a bit less mass, but still impressive.
    His big news is an exciting tour to the middle east in coming weeks.
    The recent Kuwait Pro, big Ramy and successful O2 gym, by be the sign of things to come in that region.
    Jay felt, that region was like bodybuilding was here, 10-20 years ago.

    Jay was quite candid about social media's impact on pro bodybuilding.
    He feels it's removed the mystique from the pro BB image.
    Jay also felt that it's led to less emphasis on contest success.
    Now, a man or woman can market a certain image via social media and get a lot of followers.
    This leads to marketing products which = $$$.

    Jay's embraced this post competitor chapter in his life.
    I think he'll be a growing force as the ambassador of bodybuilding.
    I saw a star, reached for it...and MISSED

    You don't have to win shit to have "fame" now. Sad.

    Kucklo is massive. Up close and personal gives you a different perspective on just how good these guys are.

    He showed a lot of promise when he was an amateur. Never lived up to the hype, but no one really has besides Heath. I think his camp tends to blow a lot of smoke up his ass and they continue to make him think he's the next big thing.

    Disagree. I'm pretty damn objective and thought he was extremely thick and muscular with excellent round shape and overall balance.

    He's definitely huge lol. That's the first thing that everyone who has seen him in person says. But you put him next to the top guys and you can see that he lacks the same level of thickness and separation.

    Because everyone takes various selfies and constant pics for social media posting, I don't.
    I prefer just talking to people without the need for taking a bunch of pics.

    Legs, were separated but his back lacks the deep "cookie cutter" cuts and separation of a Heath.

    Great guy and one of the best pros in history as a role model and BB ambassador .

    Still looks fairly big, but not as freaky huge as his contest days.
    Jay seems very content now and has embraced his new role , OFF the contest stage.

    LOL, everyone wants those selfie pics with the pro . It's gotten ridiculous.

    I'm old school , polite and different.
    I was leaving and noticed Kulco and his lovely wife were out in the lobby by their booth.
    Some young dude was taking the typical selfie with him.

    When he finished, I simply walked up to Steve, shook his head , looked him straight in the eye and said ;
    " I really enjoyed your routine tonight and was very impressed. I think you'll have a successful 2017 season, good luck ."
    He nodded , smiled , and replied; " I appreciate that, thanks for coming out to see the show."

    I grabbed my wife by the hand and walked out. No need for anything else.
    It was a good show, great pro guests and my wife and I enjoyed being fans of the sport once again.
