Title: 2010 IFBB Phoenix Pro - Top 4 should be....
Post by: Ron on February 03, 2010, 11:06:43 PM

http://www.getbig.com/headlines/2010/02/03/2010-ifbb-phoenix-pro-review-of-the-top-mens-bodybuilders/


The first IFBB pro contests of the 2010 season are almost upon us, and in the Men’s Bodybuilding contest, it is shaping up to be a good battle between some seasoned competitors. Whereas there are always surprises on who is going to be competing, the top 4 look like it is going to be Melvin Anthony, Troy Alves, Toney Freeman and Hidetada Yamagishi, not necessarily in that order.

Troy Alves is the hometown favorite, since he lives in Phoenix and owns his own supplement and training store there. Troy will definitely be ready for this contest, as he has learned from his mistakes from last years 11th placing at the Ironman, and moved up to win the IFBB Orlando Show of Champions, and place 3rd at the IFBB Atlantic City Pro. We won’t talk about the 2009 Olympia though. Still, fans are predicting that Troy is going to take this show and prove to everyone he is the best to start the season.

Melvin Anthony also is training hard right now, staying with Dennis James, who is making sure Melvin will be ready for this contest. We just heard Melvin Anthony on Pro Bodybuilding Radio last Monday night discussing his preparation for the contest, and we know his posing routine (which won’t count in the scoring this season) will be great. Can Melvin take this show and win it? Of course he can. While Troy beat Melvin at the IFBB Atlantic City Pro last year by one placing, it was Melvin that placed ahead of Troy at the 2009 IFBB Olympia.

Hidetada Yamagichi continues to improve his physique, and this year may be the time in which Hide will surpass the others. Hidetada placed second last year at both the IFBB Orlando Pro Show of Champions and the IFBB Atlantic City Pro, but also beat Melvin Anthony and Troy Alves at the IFBB Olympia, making it into the coveted top 10 rankings of the best bodybuilders in the world. No one should underestimate Hideatada at this contest.

Toney Freeman, based on rankings, is probably the best bodybuilders that will be on the stage in Phoenix, coming from an 8th place finish at the 2009 IFBB Olympia and a win at the 2009 IFBB Sacramento Pro. So why are people doubting that Toney is going to win this contest? They shouldn’t, as Toney has proved time and time again that his physique and muscularity should dominate the contest. Toney is the favorite here, based on a myriad of fans responses.

There are others who can place and surprise everyone, including Johnnie Jackson and Quincy Taylor, both who can be really on, or just miss their conditioning. Others who plan on competing include DeShaun Grimez, Neil Hill, Mike Libertore, Mehmet Yildrim, Stan “The White Rhino” Efferding, Daniel Hill, Andy Haman, and Con Demetriou. An official list should be out soon.

Melvin Anthony, Hidetada Yamagishi, Johnnie Jackson and Toney Freeman are invited and going to compete in the Arnold.

Troy Alves is not.

If Troy Alves places ahead of any of these competitors, he may just well get a special invite to Arnold - or at least deserves it.

If everybody show up in the top shape then not.
But, if everybody show up with thick skin as usual(unlike 90s), i dont hesitate to put him first.

Almost.

The guy has big problem to gain weight.
I have just said him why he dont turn chicken into all beef.
Because, he take lots of carbs and still losing weight.

Cant that be because his receptors are tired? So much gear for so long... Just an idea.

He wins if he enters in shape so tell him to get serious.

When he can hit double bis corectly. :-\

He is now working for stretching to fix it.

Train him on it you seem ok with the pose.

No. Its opposite.
Belive or not, he stays in natural state more than half of year.
So, when he starts a bit, his metabolism gets rocket high.

Post by: kyomu on February 05, 2010, 04:26:43 PM

I hit double bi correctly.
Just he cant do it because of his non-flexible shoulder.
Its pathetic that he cant get even worse shape because of it.

That will hurt him in the mandatory poses.

I dont bragg about me.
But I was the first person who pointed out that.
Even that huge trainer didnt point it out.
What a shame.
And he is very razy about his stretching and i must poke him to do it.
Like a child. :-\
