    By the looks of those pics on the Apollon site, I'd guess that's about right. He looks really small in those pics

    Kai and Phil Heath are the two young guns right now that everyone thinks will be in contention for a while. Kai had a layer of water that cost him. Still top 3 isn't too shabby. Frankhouser is another guy that could make some noise down the road.



    Brewer did now win his card. He gets real fat during the off season and needs to drop 70+ lbs to get in shape. That's pretty dumb. He is huge. He needs a new prep guy. I don't know if he is doing Nationals, but I don't think he can beat an improved Steve Kulco and some of the other super heavies. I think Kulco has a bright future. He is maybe 23 or 24. He used to train with Justin Harris. Not sure if Justin is still doing his diet.

    Fankhouser really needs to bring up his upper body to do any high level damage.

    Actaully, one of the best new guns is Evan Centopani. He won his first pro show earlier this year and has a very balanced physique with a lot of size.

    I forgot about Evan. He does look great. Winning the NY Pro in his first pro contest


    Ben Pakulski is another impressive new guy

    I have seen some of Steve Kulco's training videos on Youtube, he looked pretty good.

    A friend of mine just won the Light Heavyweight and the Overall at NPC Collegiate Nationals a couple of months ago. He may be someone to look out for in the future as well - Yumon Eaton.

    Alex Federov is who I was thinking of CP. Wolf might be like another Gunter too. Every year he was expected to do something great, he didn't place top 6.

    Ruhl looked GREAT and gets robbed every year. It is ridiculous really. Face to face with Cutler he compares very favorably yet he gets stiffed...

    I think in the past Markus has just developed a reputation for focusing too much on mass and not enough on conditioning and separation, which over time has probably cost him consideration for the top 10 spots. 15 does seem a little low for this year though

    I'm surprised by Ronnie Rockel. He beat a ton of guys who've almost always beat him in the past...

    Also by Jackson's place. I would have pegged him for 2nd...

    At almost every contest too it seems like he was placed too low. Maybe he is finally getting what he deserves.

    Branch's conditioning in comparison to the Arnold was pretty impressive though
