NO BULL radio, Shawn suggested Kai Skip the Olympia, Win the 09 Arnold and Then Steam roll the 2009 Olympia.
He suggested that the "powers that be" would not let Kai place above 5-6 and also Kai's contractual obligations (new supp company) and guest posing would not allow him to fully prepare for the 08 Olympia.
Unless there's some valid reason to think he can massively improve his physique with the time off, he should do the O. It's a decent paycheck, and keeps his name out there.
Pros only seen to have one "quantum leap" in physique during their pro careers... Kai already had his. He's pushing max Palumboism, and it's all downhill from here.
2009 belongs to either Wolf or Heath, depending on which direction the IFBB wants to go.
