GOING OFF THE DEEP END. FUCK IT


« Reply #100 on: May 23, 2017, 05:04:27 PM »

Sergio Oliva Jr. is one amazing N!

It's obvious that N's have the best genetics for running, for basketball, for football - but as for BB, I think it's a bit of a toss up.  Like in MMA, I think talent is more uniformly distributed.  N's have lower IQs, but have amazing physicality, hence make great fighters.  I think Caucasoid fighters are in part great fighters due to intelligence - "Fight IQ", which really just boils down to IQ.

Anyway, Sergio Jr. has amazing N genetics.  I saw the 1984 Mr. Olympia contest when Sergio held Sergio Jr. up in the air as a baby N.  I had no idea how good he would later become!  No real shocker there, although his mom's Caucasoid genetics did not really help his physique, lol.  It probably gave him a much needed IQ boost though.  N's have notoriously low IQ's - averaging around 85.  Undecided Lips sealed

Worst troll account in the history of this board. N please.

Aceto said he was super nervous to guest pose with Ramy and the rest of the crew there, so he carbed up like crazy to look "big" and spilled over. Chris said they took the prep into overdrive from Pittsburgh until the NYP.

In Pittsburgh, May 6; lower left:

Akim and Sergio:



Akim reminds me so much of Victor Richards that it isn't even funny. And Sergio doesn't even come close to his father in that pose. BUT ... it's a nice respectful nod though ( if that's his intent ).

He goes to absolutely nothing when he hits his dad's signature pose.  He isn't anywhere near the level that his father was at.  Needs to stop hitting that pose out of respect to his father.

He has the same long, full muscle bellies in his forearms and upper arms as his father. But, he lacks the taper and chest thickness. I suspect that as time goes by, if he keeps his waist in check, he's gonna be a top contender for Mr. O. He reminds me of when Phil first came on the scene.
Akim is a beast, he's the next Roelly.

Watching RX Muscle's recap on Youtube. Laughable that this used to be the NOC. The top three guys were just not that impressive, and it's a steep drop off after the 5th place finisher.

Do you really think that?  You are the second "credible" person I know who said this.

I thought the top three were pretty good.  Undecided

Akim, looks ridiculous. Sergio looks much better hitting it.

You notice the same trend at the NPC Nationals, which is even more surprising given the high number of competitors.

The conditioning wasnt impressive. The shitty lighting doesnt help. Even the olympia has shit lighting.

To me, his lats aren't as big as those of his father. So, that pose doesn't work quite as well. With a bigger back, he'll match his father, if not exceed him.
