Heath was at the Clippers game yesterday. They put him on the jumbo tron- he flexed a bunch of times. I think only 1% of the crowd knew who he was.

Not even that good.  Most ripped sprinters I know have much better separation and detail than Kevin did that year.

What happened to his lower body, anyway?  He had some of the best wheels around, even as "late" as 1999 IIRC.  Then, BAM, no leg Kev from 2000 onward.  There's no question it cost him the show in 2002.



I recall reading that he injured his back and couldn't do squats any more

front facing hack squats are also great and put minimal pressure on the lower back

Out of curiosity, how much weight were you rowing?

I actually don't remember precisely, but I never went very heavy on that exercise- probably the heaviest I ever went was 225. I used to do them significantly bent over- nearly parallel to the floor, but one day I tried them much more upright like Dorian and seriously hurt my back. That was 8 years ago and it has never been the same. I never went to the doctor to determine the extent of the injury. Oh well, live and learn. I hardly ever do them any more- I just do one arm dumbbell rows in their place

one of the best back builders .. Dorian stood very high.. how high will depend on your body

I injured my back very badly doing rows like this about 8 years ago. It has recovered, but it has always felt vulnerable ever since.

I think the best machine ever would have to be the leg press

I wonder if Diabetes helps add to symptoms of Palumboism. They're ALL diabetics who most are in denial over the disease.

I understand that most if not all pro bodybuilders take insulin, but how does it turn them into diabetics?

there is a huuuuge thread on this somewhere

http://www.getbig.com/boards/index.php?topic=26737.0

probably the best thread in the history of this board

Flex, Chris, John Sherman, Rico. Who is the other guy? Three of these guys would be winning shows in today's line up. And one would have his Pro card, considering the quality of today's NPC ranks.



Edgar Fletcher?

It still boggles my mind that Cutler beat Cormier in that show
11  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Screenshots of 2012 Olympia comparisons, it was close but.. on: October 01, 2012, 09:05:18 PM
I gotta agree with Shock and Meso...

I showed the comparisons to some lay people and asked them who they think won.. they all pointed to Kai...it was like 110%


One woman said "i think the Dark skinned guy looks like he's been doing it for a few years longer then the other one..he has more muscles"

hahahahaha


Kai's back and legs were especially better. I know Kai's hair detracts, but so does Heath's strange looking GH head
12  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Screenshots of 2012 Olympia comparisons, it was close but.. on: October 01, 2012, 09:04:01 PM
Kai had the edge. It is pretty clear from most of the pictures. Oh well, it isn't the first time and it won't be the last time that the IFBB rigged a contest
13  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Heath and Kai have surpassed everyone in the 90s except Dorian and Ronnie. on: September 30, 2012, 06:37:45 PM
his reputation didn't hinder him from beating shawn ray, which he couldn't do either.  and shawn never maxed out his potential, because he refused to compete over 212.  if shawn was at last night's O, he would have taken his usual 3rd - 5th place spot. 

cormier never really put it together to beat the best.  instead, he beat up on melvin anthony in 10k shows.  review shawn's inside and out to see what i mean.

Cormier put it all together at 2 of the ASC's- can't remember which exact years- he should have beat Cutler and Dex on another occasion. He had no flaws at all in the '99 Mr O- basically perfect physique
14  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Heath and Kai have surpassed everyone in the 90s except Dorian and Ronnie. on: September 30, 2012, 06:30:40 PM
The only time wheeler showed up to anything close to the condition of Ronnie, Dorian, Phik or Kai was in 93 at 216 lbs at 5 10 and 98 arnold classic at 232. Even then, Phil and Kai have advanced it to a new level.

Bodybuilding should not be judged on body weight.
15  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Heath and Kai have surpassed everyone in the 90s except Dorian and Ronnie. on: September 30, 2012, 06:30:00 PM
WTF did Cormier win outside of 10k shows? He'd lose to Branch in both of Branch's Arnold wins!

Cormier deserved to the win the Arnold on at least 2 occasions and should have won the '99 Olympia. I think his reputation hindered him- sort of like Kai actually
16  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Heath and Kai have surpassed everyone in the 90s except Dorian and Ronnie. on: September 30, 2012, 05:08:41 PM
The '90s was the greatest era of bodybuilding- Ronnie, Yates, Flex, Levrone, Ray, Dillet were all better than Kai or Phil.
17  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: CEDRIC MCMILLLIAN acusing PHIL or KAI??? (see the pic) on: September 30, 2012, 09:40:38 AM
Why didn't McMilan compete in the Mr O?
18  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Top 10 on: September 29, 2012, 10:59:58 PM
top 6 were

1 heath

2 kai

3 rhoden

4 dex

5 warren

6 wolf

how on earth did warren place in the top 5? shouldn't have even been the top 10
19  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Kai Greene is the new Mr. Olympia on: September 29, 2012, 12:18:35 PM
the announcers for bb.com seemed to think it was Heath that is the clear victor. I don't agree, but they must know something we don't know- like maybe the fix is in
20  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: sharper comparison shots from the supposed top 2 - from team andro on: September 29, 2012, 07:58:54 AM
Although he still does have the larger waist, it looks like Kai is better than Heath overall this year
21  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 2012 Olympia - Info, Poster, Lists - Sep 27-30th on: September 28, 2012, 09:16:21 PM
Cedric McMillan 3 weeks out pics

I thought McMilan wasn't competing

Chick suit is horrendous
23  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 2012 Mr. Olympia Predictions - Choose the Top Six! on: September 20, 2012, 07:19:10 PM
Why is McMilllan not competing?
24  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 1999 Mr. Olympia - Comparison PICS You May Not Have Seen!!! on: September 18, 2012, 11:26:49 PM
RONNIE COLEMAN! Cormier could have placed 2nd but he wasnt beating Ronnie

I think Cormier has him beat in this show. Yes, Ronnie was bigger, but Cormier was very well proportioned and in tip top shape
25  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: 1999 Mr. Olympia - Comparison PICS You May Not Have Seen!!! on: September 17, 2012, 09:11:19 PM
I think Cormier has a solid argument for first place in this show. Absolutely no flaws for him at this show
