Thread: Next MD Cover: Will 2017 Witness A Changing of the Guard?

  1. #1

    Default Next MD Cover: Will 2017 Witness A Changing of the Guard?

    When Phil Heath won his sixth Mr. Olympia title last September, history was made. The man nicknamed “The Gift” cemented his feet firmly among bodybuilding’s elite and entered iconic status as a multiple Sandow winner. Phil reached another milestone in his distinguished bodybuilding career: his number of Olympia wins equals that of an icon from the past, the great Dorian Yates. It would seem that Phil is unstoppable, with talk of winning 10 Sandows. Is there any bodybuilder who is man enough to stand in his way?

    The bodybuilding landscape is changing, with some top pros losing ground and a host of newer contenders jostling to take their places in 2017. As Heath reigns supreme as the top bodybuilder on the planet, are we about to see a new generation of bodybuilders such as Big Ramy, William Bonac, Justin Compton, Nathan De asha and Dallas McCarver make their mark? Bodybuilding historian Peter McGough breaks out his bodybuilding crystal ball in “As the Bodybuilding World Turns”. Peter examines whether 2017 will witness a changing of the guard.

    If you’re a bodybuilder or even a serious weight trainer, you probably want a bigger, thicker set of pecs. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s mighty chest was so thick, so full and had so much “pop” to it that Arnold inspired millions of men the world over to start pumping iron. In “Train Chest Like the Best!” Get tips and routines from Arnold and other champion bodybuilders who have built the best chests ever.

    Nathan De asha is a breakthrough star who has already proven himself to be a true contender in just his rookie year, winning the IFBB Toronto Pro and IFBB Lou Ferrigno Legacy in 2016. Nathan is one of those rare men who combines mass, shape and aesthetics with full muscle bellies flaring off tiny joints. Learn more about him in “Beware The Prophecy! Nathan De asha Is a One-Man British Invasion”.

    Dexter Jackson has been an inspiration to millions with his total package of mass, structure, shape, symmetry, proportion and condition, along with masterful posing presentation. Just after placing third at the 2016 Mr. Olympia, Jackson made history by winning his 26th pro show, the Arnold Classic Europe, and becoming the winningest pro bodybuilder in the history of our sport. And if that wasn’t enough to solidify his record, he finished the season off with win number 28 at the Mr. Olympia Europe show in Germany! Read Dexter’s amazing story of longevity and excellence in “Dexter Jackson: Bodybuilder of the Century! The Blade Has the Most Wins of All Time”.

    Personally feel Bonac is better than Ramy and Phil, but I realize that the O will likely never again reward a smaller guy. Phil isn't as "complete" as Bonac and certainly doesn't have as ideal proportions.

    Bonac could have placed 2nd and I would have been ok with it! Dude was the best conditioned and hardest guy on stage.

    Alito….did you shed tears over this cover? LOL

    Bonac and Heath impressed me the most at this year's Olympia.

    I just don't get the Ramy hype, looks like a big amateur, not an Olympia title threat, sorry.
