The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Cutler is boring.
    "Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." - John Calvin Coolidge

    I'll admit Jay Cutler doesn't have the greatest charisma... But he deserves the Mr Olympia title. The title goes to the best bodybuilder, not the best personality.

    Ronnie was definately not in condition. His gut was sticking out like a man who enjoys too much beer. I guess that bbq sauce Ronnie loves so much finally caught up with him.

    I'm going to miss Ronnie's antics though. He had great stage presence. That's not to say Ronnie is finished yet...

    I hope he comes back next year and destroys everyone. They should of gave the title to Ronnie so he could retire as the best bodybuilder in history with 9 wins in a row. Now he has to come back to prove that he is not old news.

    from all the pictures ive seen i cant see any fat on ronnie as far as that goes

    imo coleman should have beat cutler, i feel he has him on legs, destroys him on arms (upper and lower arm), an beats him on back because ronnie has a well rounded back, where as jay has overpowering lats compared to his traps

    heres some pics

    there is no way someone with that kind of tear or injury should win

    I dunno. I think he may try to come back but I don't see him winning again. Dex should've one, IMO.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    When you look at the rear double bi...that's the proof right there. No way in HELL is anyone going to win the Mr. O with a torn left lat that looks that bad!! I'm actually pissed off he placed 2nd...he should have been much lower in my opinion!! He was only 2nd, because they can't have an 8 time Mr.O come in to a show and get clobbered and finish in 4th or 5th!!!

    As fun at Ronnie can be, I'm kinda glad to see him de-throned. How would football fans like it if the Raiders won the superbowl every year for 6-7 years consecutively? they'd get tired of the sport.

    bodybuilding is no different. if the fans aren't interested, there is no sport...or at least no money to be made in the sport (and if you've priced tickets to the Olympia, you'll understand theres' lots of money making involved).

    I too wouldn't be surprised if Ronnie retires from the olympia, much like Arnold did back in the 70's when he won his final Mr. Universe (I'm pretty sure it was universe, not olympia)

    Jay won!!! He is the current Mr. Olympia!!! I can't believe it, I'm so happy, Ronnie got dethroned, it was about time, I knew Jay was gonna win the Mr. Olympia one day, he was the only one who had the genetics to beat Ronnie, and this time he did it!!! Congratulations to you Jay! You are the best bodybuilder in the world!
    Judging from the pictures that I saw, Jay looked awesome, I mean , unbelievable! I remember when a lot of people didn't like Jay Cutler's physique that much, but I always knew he was very good, and he looks better than ever! Bigger, denser, excellent proportions and symetry, he looked outstanding, way better than Ronnie! Ronnie is gone!...lol!
    Jay has the outstanding wide shoulders, his physique is near perfection, his muscle density has improved a lot, and his back...massive!!!
    Congratulations to the new Mr Olympia!!!!!!!!!!!!!
