As you probably know the 2013 edition of the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition is coming next September and we’re all excited too see what everybody’s gonna look like on stage. If you haven’t seen what your favorite bodybuilder looks like for a while, we have recent pictures just for you.
*** Update : Just posted part 2 of what bodybuilders look like a couple months before the olympia. More up to date pictures and Branch Warren looking better ;-P
What Jay Cutler looks like for his comeback in 2013
To my surprise Jay seems to be in super good shape, as I thought he was on the decline lately (no offense M. Cutler, I’m a big fan of yours and this is just my opinion). He SEEEMS to have lost a little bit of width, which is nothing considering he’s probably the widest bodybuilder I’ve ever seen for his height. His quads look a little smaller and not as impressive as he used to be when he won his last contest, and that was a good weapon in his arsenal. I’m not sure if he is number one material this year, but definitely not to treat lightly for his competitors.
What does Phil Heath look like as of now in 2013?
You can check this post on musculardevelopment here. Basically covers Phil’s posing at the Phil Heath classic 2013. The guy is really huge in these pictures. Chest thickness and arm size is totally out of control right there and he seems to be well on his way to #1 this year. There are a lot of nitpickers on bodybuilding forums stating that he his too big and lost the pleasant look and perfect symmetry he once had. I totally disagree. Remember folks this is off-season ! If he keeps his waistline small on stage he will do just like he did last year.
What is Kai Greene’s physique as of now?
My biggest surprise this year is Kai Greene. He looks in fantastic shape and his waist looks super good. Surprised to see his abs so defined in the off-season. Not sure if I would bet my money on him yet, but I’m definitely rooting for him to win this year. He has a great physique, good personality, has worked very hard and deserves it.
What does Branch Warren look like as of now (2013)?
Nothing too stunning and nothing bad there either. A lot of people in the bodybuilding community see Branch as a guy who’s on the decline and I would agree with that. Maybe it’s bad lighting in these pictures, but he seems to have lost some mass. Don’t really see him going far in the competition.
All that being said these are all of-season pics and what counts is on stage. We’ll see what happens in september 2013 at the Olympia. Good luck to all of them.
