Melvin should have won Mr. Olympia with those genetics.  I always thought that he had better potential than Dexter.

Ah... Melvin Anthony - the man, the legend, the one with the best stories who makes the people laugh, especially with his way of not caring if people laugh at him. Funniest story I hard from the 2008 Olympia was the excuse he gave for not wearing the mandatory 'Olympia outfit' for the press conference.  The reason --> Because I pissed all over it. 

Melvin has had a great career, from enduring an car accident a few year ago the day he was competing at the Olympia, to almost retiring from his bodybuilding career if he did not do well in one contest that made his way.

I have know Melvin for a while now, and was one of the fortunate few to be there when he married his girl on the bluffs of Malibu. 

But yes, there is a lot of talk now that Melvin's time in cracking the top six might be over considering the incredible lineup of the 2009 Olympia.    Dexter Jackson, Jay Cutler, Kai Greene, Toney Freeman, Victor Martinez, Phil Heath - just six right here that might keep him out of there...

A lot of dudes with good genetics never win the Olympia.  Melvin Anthony is one of many that never fulfilled max potential.

Dex has said that Melvin comes in too heavy, and that he should be coming in lighter, which for Melvin means tighter...this of course was a few yrs before Dex won the Mr. O.

Melvin has lost his trademark back detail, and his lower back, glute, ham tie in, like Flex is his weakness. Also Melvin has never really come in shape, except for the 2006 Mr. O 0r was it 2005?

He's turning 40 this yr, so, his time seems like it has past. He's not gonna get past Heath and Kai, Wolfe or Freeman, and Dex as well, unless, Melvin comes in phenomenal, like a 21st Century Flex/Brian Buchanan clone.

IMO, melvin could come in 15 pounds lighter, completely shredded, and be a top 4 O threat.

What he'd lose in size wouldn't matter - he's outmassed anyway - but his lines/shape are superior to most guys on that stage.

Tampa Pro show - August

Dennis James and Toney Freeman to rematch in Tampa

Just like last year, they could end up 1-2 again.

Yep, and a pair of calves...i have been a staunch Melvin supporter, but have been disappointed as of late.

melvin has so much untapped potential... the combination of that structure and full muscle bellies with his mass is incredible... everything flows right you are not drawn to one or two bodyparts in particular... mark of a great physique... if he nails his conditioning and comes in with size to match the rest expect a top 6 finish in this tough line up

If Dexter Jackson can be Mr. Olympia than anyone can be!

Melvin has lost his aggressiveness on stage and instead of concentrating on Bodybuilding he is distracted to the Posing routine.




But we all know who will make the Best Mr. Olympia
The Xman and Melvin was beaten him for the first time by the judges.... and he is getting better!
