Concur.

The only thing he's missing is arms. Most of the physiques today are 'all drugs'.

You guys can hate on Branch the bodybuilder all you want but as a promoter I can tell you he is a man of his word and as straight up as you get. No tantrums, no unreasonable demands and no headaches. A few up and comers could learn a lot about business from Branch.

We had a great show, fans come from every state and all left happy. We had Phil Heath, Kevin English, Rich Gaspari and Shawn Ray at the show and I had a blast interviewing them on stage.

nobody is hating on the man himself....he could be an awesome dude irl....
he just looks like shit....
someone said only thing missing is arms??
he has no symmetry, no lines, no seperation... awefull back... torn muscles...wide waist....overall a very unhealthy look... only thing in his favor are his great legs....but even they look weird because he is so short....
he doesn't flow at all!
all you guys talking about the 90's and they looked so much better then.... why do you think that is???????
JUDGES!!
bb's do what needs to be done to be competitive.... reward a certain look and they will do whatever it takes the look that way... you know, to win competitions....
in the 90's judges actually looked at things like symmetry, lines, and if a body had a good flow....
nowadays it's just who is the biggest and hardest.... ( i am talking physiques, so no homo jokes ;D ;D ;D)


Be Happy,
Optimus

I just keep shaking my head. Why couldn't they just stop at the 90's look? Perfect balance of size, shape, and hardness. And most of those guys could still do a vacuum pose. Branch is the antithesis of what bodybuilding should be about. On top of what GH15 says, his torn muscles and atrophied forearms are ridiculous...looks worse and worse as time goes on.  :(

Tony, no one will argue about Branch and his personality of a man of his words..

Bear in mind this, we are NOT talking about his personality.. This is not MR. PERSONALITY!! This is BODYBUILDING!!!

Branch may be a great person but his physique did not and should not represent the sport..

I am a mini beast

Spot on. Branch appears to be a really cool guy with a great work ethic, however his body should not be held up as a yardstick for the other pro's. Unfortunately until you start rewarding lines, symmetry and small waists the sport i fell in love with back in the late 80's will continue to fall into decline.
