Hopefully he stays with Aceto. The one guy who keeps their stomachs from ballooning out it seems.

indeed very similiar, but something still gives flex the edge.cant tell what.better flow of lines i guess.although he dwarfs flexs lats and legs from the front.even his waist is smaller, but still somehow flexs physigque looks to have the better structure.

but yes, flex is outmuscled easily there

hows rhodens back looking?
Flex had rounder, fuller muscle bellies...he never really weighed that much.

Interesting, Chad Nicholls had said the most "Flex-like" was Melvin Anthony. Me and Mes disagree, so I was going to do a Flex vs Melvin thread.

Now this guy looks like flex kind of

I don't agree he outmuscles flex it's not what you weigh it's what you look like you weigh
Flex kills him in almost all mandatory poses looks bigger due to muscle shape... Eg most muscular . Side chest,

HOLY SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He has a LEGIT shot at the top 6. The top 4 is set, but Rhoden, Pac-Man and Evan will fighting for 5-7. Dexter is going to have to be 100% not to get knocked down to 8th

Hopefully he stays with Aceto. The one guy who keeps their stomachs from ballooning out it seems.

Chris Aceto is THE MAN. plain and simple.
number one he's humble and polite when you see him in person, very rare in the business...
and the people he's brought this year to stage:

Rhoden
McMillan
Eduardo Correa
Massum Butt (indian dude in Toronto Pro 212 - check that shit out)
 Jay (in his best years)
Martinez (in his NOC win)
Troy Alves
 Chris Cook (back when he gave a shit about bodybuilding)
Garett Downing (Toronto Pro 2005, his best shape ever)
 Will Harris (if only u knew how fat he got in off-season and Chris whipped him back into shape)
Patrick Bernard (Canadian 212) Samer Zebib (Canadian LHW 2004) Leo Difruscia (Canadian LHW 2005) all guys i know personally

i'm sure i missed other great guys, point is, Aceto brings you in at your best. proven time and time again

Joe McNeal has had very good success with this bodytype (Flex, Dex).

That's actually rather impressive.
Rhoden looks incredible but his lighter wt compared to the top guys will hurt him.
I think he can crack the top 5 or 6 .
I also think Evan Centropani will be a definite top 3 at this yrs Olympia.

He will be outclassed in the thick gut development onstage though

The best Vic has ever looked was when he won his Pro card, The NOC, and the GNC (and there he had a gut).

Not as good as Flex.

Flex had better arms, especially triceps. And flex had better arms to delts ratios. Also, Flex had a thinner look to his skin, in shape, than Shawn. Flex's calves looked better too, as did his abs.

Shawn is very, very good. But he's more like a Troy Alves with good legs, than a Wheeler.

Flex had at least a back. Maybe not width but definitely detail. Melvin didn't even have a back.

I didn't realize Rhoden was this tall. He needs alot more chest, it's a glaring weakness, He needs to do whatever Flex did for his calves and for a physique like his he needs much bigger arms.  His back double biceps shot is nowhere near Flexs.

I was thinking the same thing, his arms aren't small but they are nowhere near as impressive or shapely as flex's were in his prime.

he's got a great build, but it lacks that certain something. i think his huge quads throw off his balance too, he looks bottom heavy, which is weird for a "lines' guy

Add his back as a glaring weakness also.  While wide, it is very shallow and lacks detail as shown in his back double bicep pose.
