    According to Ced heart issue was due to the Covid not bodybuilding related,However I hope he is smart enough to know if he is 100% good to go ,he is mid to late 40’s so hopefully he is very careful.

    If you look at his IG, he doesnt look 8 weeks out if some of these vids he posted are recent. But, you have to respect him bc he doenst just eat, sleep and train but has a real job!

    Maybe you can relate but, after my last contest, I just felt something 'break' inside.
    It wasn't physical , but I knew I couldn't deal with putting myself thru any future contest preps.

    Maybe, guys like Roelly or Cedric lost the drive to push thru a 100% contest prep ?
    Being a pro freak in decent shape, you'd look incredible next to the avg gym rat.
    However, once on stage with dialed in pros, your once great physique has lost some luster.

    He was WAY down in size at the Legacy show. Id love to see him nail it but I think that ship has sailed
    He had had an operated hand and that is why he did not make the Arnold, hopefully he will regain some of size and quality.

    Cedric always pulls it out of the bag at the Arnold though. Let’s see.

    The problem with Cedric is that fans no longer expect him to bring something surprising or to be a favorite for the top places.

    They are 2 different cases, Roelly's life is bodybuilding, while Cedric is more diversified in other occupations.

    Cedric competes for fun or to inspire others with his routines, not so much for the money or the prestige of collecting titles.

    Roelly has made many more sacrifices to try and win the Olympia.

    Roelly may be more drained, physically and mentally. But anyone can recover after a good period of rest. The questions are; does he have serious injuries? His body is not responding to gear as well as before?
    Glad to hear that about Cedric and that sounds like a sensible path for him to stay active in this game.

    Like any elite athlete, Roelly could get it together for one more triumph. We shall see.

    We always say the same thing, bodybuilding is a marathon ... but many here speak as if it were a short-range sport.

    Roelly can be what he was before or follow a downhill path, we will see that when he returns to compete. But let's not kill him before his time.

    That's a good point, now, look at Bonac. He seems that at the Arnold it will be better than at the Olympia. And he is one of the most veteran.

    Roelly can still return to his best level, no one knows what his situation has been this season, he did not even seem like he wanted to compete in so many shows. Never say that someone is finished just by a bad season, Kuwait has many resources.
