Al
lol were do I start.

IMO:

The center guy:
  • Big mass monster ( no detailed separation just main muscles)
  • NO lower back separation
  • OUT of conditioning - couldn't hold a flex longer than 3-4 seconds.

Both guys more the one on right, out shined center guy in:
  • Tan
  • Hamstrings
  • quad flex (center guy couldn't hold one for shit).
  • Sartorius development, center guy don't even look like he has them.

IMO a case of were the center guy thought pure mass and no attention to detail would get him a win.

If the guy on right would bring his elbows down 2" in the double Bi's lining up all his joints and letting his bellies do the work and not try to force a size illusion but let the illusion flow, his lats (judging by lat spreads) would come out at least another 1" per side on his front and rear bi poses also it would give him more thickness in lats seen as they aren't stretched out as much. . A case of bad posing making him look smaller than he is.

A NPC, IFBB show center guy may have won. All depends on the fed of the show and there judging criteria. Here is a point were bar stool judges piss me off also. They have NO idea what the judging criteria is for that feds judging unless they have tested and studied to be a judge, and yet they think they know more from pics and video's that the judges that are 4' away from them with the best view there is.

CBBF is a branch of the NPC/IFBB so I am suprised if the center guy didn't win.

Bodybuilding is about attention to detailing mass, among the many many other things. Being a big @ss blob even if your dieted down don't win you crap. (most the time)
