I preface my comment by acknowledging that Branch has accomplished more on the circuit, donning the thong than I ever will - but seriously, does he not worry about going the same way as Ronnie and to a lesser extent, Dorian? There is a reason guys like Jay and Dex are injury-free and continue to look incredible, not like goblins.  :(

Agreed about Jay and Dexter looking great. I still fear for both of their health due to using so many PEDs...but at least they won't end up a mess of injuries like Ronnie and Branch.

I fear for the coachís health too, heís 240+ pounds these days at 5í6 approaching 60

Recently battling a case of hiccups is not good

I worry

coach is in denial. at 5'6 he needs to be around 168 lbs max (he'll say I haven't been at that weight for 30 years, well duh, you've been roiding all them years), and he'll still look jacked if he's lean there. look at the shorter fighter who are in the 154-168 range.

that denial mode is what causes bad health surprises to hit you like a bus.

Me too. Heís already had a recent health scare before the extra weight was put on, right? Like a mini heart attack or stroke? Each year youíre competitively bodybuilding in your 40ís and 50ís is like playing Russian roulette especially when youíre ignoring the red flags that your body is already signaling. His response? Up the dose and move up a weight class. I like Coach, but this is denial and stubbornness of peace...

I really don't know why people keep on citing Ronnie like possibilities for guys who lift heavy.

Ronnie is the only guy I've ever heard of who has had the type of problems.  He might be an outlier.

I've never heard of powerlifters, guys who go into their 60-70s having the issues that Ronnie has had.

Yet apparently, we're doomed if we lift heavy over 40 ::)

No. Ronnie isnít the ONLY one to have issues with his body from lifting heavy, however, he is one of the few to be in the extreme end of it

The problem he has is he keeps lifting while heís still recovering from surgery

I think itís the addictive personality he has, which is common among bbers and drug addicts, they donít know when to stop, I recall coach in his early days as a meth addict (maybe he can come on here and confirm it)

Combine with being stubborn, and him being almost 60, itís not going to end well

Apparently he wants to move up and compete in the heavy weight division

Thatís redundant considering that competitive bodybuilders ARE drug addicts  ;)

I think this is a bad idea. Branch is well past his prime. Besides, we know damn well what happens to professional bodybuilders who train at Metroflex gym. History dictates that this guy will be on crutches if he keeps it up. The motto seems to be to lunge the heaviest weights around with the goal of detaching muscles from tendons and crushing spinal discs. Unless you have amazing genetics (ie Coleman), you are bound to bring about an injury and/or body deformity, well before you taste Olympia glory. Even if he is lucky enough to obtain a high spot on the Olympia stage, he will still be on the path to physical annihilation.

I stay up at night worrying about coach sometimes. I had to smoke an extra spliff and pop a few xannies last night to calm my nerves.

Branch is a very small man and getting smaller by the day as he reduces his supplement intake

Change is hard, but changing one's entire lifestyle is much more difficult if not nearly impossible.

Same caveat as JuicedKangaroo - I've never been anywhere near Branch's level (mainly because I'm 6'1")

So clearly I'm not really qualified to comment, but do those arms look slightly lumpy..?

He's still clearly shaving all over too for some reason.  He resembles a smooth pink Orc or something

These guys are used to being stared at, thatís addictive and when they go off drugs they literally disappear from the spotlight. Nobody gives them the attention they had before.

Drugs = big = attention.

Just like hot chicks getting older. They resort to plastic surgeries to stay somewhat relevant.

Mentally weak people canít stand the thought of being irrelevant to the public eye. They are slaves to the society.

It's a height thing- Dorian is 5'10 ish, Branch is 5'6". Short guys who get big can't handle being little again. So Branch could never drop the weights.

With age typically brings more money which always trumps size, looks, shredded physique, etc..
