All kidding aside it is a huge responsibility. You sometimes hold the guys win in your very actions. You tell them what to eat drink and so forth.  Funny thins is I if I am actually at the show I usually would lose about 5 to 7 pounds over the weekend from nerves.  ;D

Anybody have an idea who was advising Kevin Levrone when he won the Nationals in 1992?

I like Alex so no disrespect intended, but another example of doing the wrong thing once again. I hope he can pull things together in time.

Met the guy once, but can't remember his name.

Unfortunately for Alex he won't make the top 5. He's more like 8-9th. He was in a tough class and genetically he just doesn't have it to contend. He also wasn't as sharp with his conditioning has he was in his preview photos or even last night at weigh-ins.

Ed Nunn is my pick for the overall. Tiny waist, great conditioning and if he has a weakness it would be his chest but he's the best guy in the show. Steve showed great promise at only 23 years old. If he can add more detail to his back and come in a bit sharper from behind he'll be tough to beat.

Damn, genetics aside his best conditioning which unfortunately is always in the gym would have put him in the running I would think, too bad.

His conditioning was off at the show but the top 5 guys packed a good deal more muscle. He improved from his showing last year though.

Tre showed definite improvement from Jr. Nationals and was much, much lighter.

You can always count on most of these guys screwing up at the last minute by using diuretics insulin and improper carb up. Amazing that these guys never learn. Sean and Troy look terrible and I am at a loss as to why Putnam looks so bad.  ???

EXACTLY!!!!  Its amazing how good a lot of guys looked at the weigh in and now they have just got flat and small.

I'm at a loss for words. Is there anyone else in this show that looks good and if so why all this pics of putnam and Allen? Not only is Putnam's conditiong off, but from the rear he honestly looks like he couldn't place in a local show.

Trey looks bad too. Sad things is these guys will look so much better in a couple of days anfter drinking some fluids and eating some sodium. If I were Trey and Sean I would do just that cause they have nothing to loose at this point.

WTF????  He was SHREDDED last week...If you are in shape the Sunday before the show there is no excuse for not looking the same the day of the show.  Carb loading, insulin, diuretics....Keep it simple

Guys make drastic changes to try to get a drastic result.  Sodium deplete then load, dropping water, increasing carbs, using slin and diuretics. It's nuts. Everyone wants the golden formula when all they need to do is to keep doing what they have been doing that made them look so great a week before the show.

Putnam winning is a disgrace. His personality is dry as crap to boot.

Sean Allen look like total crap as well.

Ed Nunn.....the future of this sport.

I never understood the hype behind Putnum.  He looks awful at this show.  I still cannot understand why he ever got a Flex magazine cover?  If he wins his division I will never again watch another NPC show.  It will be the biggest political scam ever laid on us by the NPC.

Props to Ed Nunn for the win. He's contemplating doing the 2009 IRONMAN.
