Arnold Classic Bodybuilding Results (2017)

im1ages

The Arnold Sports Festival has finished and we have a NEW Arnold Classic Champion.

Men’s Bodybuilding Open Results:

6. Fouad Abaid: Fouad looked really good. He tore his quad in prep and it hurt his symmetry. Great showing.

5. Juan Morel: Top half great, bottom half disappeared a bit.

4. Lionel Beyeke: Needed about 3-4 more weeks of dieting to come in hard as nails and could have won this whole thing. He is always just a hair off. Great structure.

3. Maxx Charles: He was my dark horse if you read my Arnold Predictions. He looked amazing. Great job Maxx!

2. Dallas McCarver: Dallas started working with Chad Nichols during prep, the same Chad Nicholas that pushed Ronnie Coleman to 7 Olympia titles. Dallas looked good but at 26 years old, he needs more time to get that muscle maturity that wins major championships.

1. Cedric McMillan: Cedric deserved the night. Cedric looked amazing. Tight waist, great conditioning, and bigger than ever. I couldn’t be happier for Cedric!

If you haven’t watched his speech after his win, you need to. He is inspiring.

Other winners:

Ahmad Ashkanani won the 212 Championship although I would have gave the edge to David Henry, who’s back was an anatomy chart for muscles, tendons, and other freaky things. Ahmad is the future of the 212. I don’t know how he makes weight.

Dallas McCarver
Cedric McMillan
Juan Morel
Luke Sandoe

Predictions:

My Top 5

5. Juan Morel: Juan is looking insane a few days before the Arnold. Definitely could be anywhere in the top 5!

4. Fouad Abiad: Fouad is in excellent conditioning but did tear his quad. He works with John Meadows so you know he will be ready. 

fouad

3. Lionel Beyeke: I think Lionel has better genetics and look than Dallas and Cedric but hasn’t peaked conditioning yet (other than the Arnold Brazil where he got screwed a few years ago). If he peaks, he wins. Hands down. However, if he is soft, he could finish last. 

lionel

2. Dallas McCarver: Dallas works with Chad Nicholls. Do you know the name, you should. He worked with Flex Wheeler and a guy named Ronnie Coleman in the 90’s and 2000’s. Dallas will weigh 295 when he stands on stage on Saturday. Dallas could easily win the whole thing. 

dallas

Champion: Cedric McMillan. I am predicting Cedric Mcmillan as the champion as long as he nails his conditioning. I am a bit nervous with this prediction because Cedric recently stated that he is 25 pounds heavier this year than last year. Cedric doesn’t need to play the size game. If he is too big, he will get crushed by Dallas and some of the others.

Dark horse: Maxx Charles has the death face at the Arnold expo which normally means that the conditioning will be insane. He could easily slide into the top 3 if people are off.

Scorecard:

Olympia-16-Men-212-1.jpg

Top 5:

1 .Phil Heath: Phil was Phil. Best back on stage, great muscle bellies. Still not the Phil we saw earlier this decade. Waist keeps getting wider. Back is lights out. Friday night I had Dexter winning, although Saturday I think they made the right decision.

2. Shawn Rhoden: Shawn looked great. I would have had him third behind Dexter but not extremely upset with the decision.

2931-shawn-rhoden-29_final.jpg

3. Dexter Jackson: Dexter is the man. 47 years old. Looked amazing. Hard to imagine that this is the “third” best bodybuilder in the world.

1874-dexter-jackson-85_final.jpg

4. “Big Ramy”: What a difference 24 hours makes. Big Ramy was “small” by his standards on Friday. I’m assuming Chris Aceto tried keeping him small to show conditioning. Didn’t work. Came back Saturday and pushed to move up to the top 3. Insane size.

41262-mamdouh-elssbiay-159_final.jpg

5. William Bonac: The new Giant Killer. William Bonac has more muscle per square inch as anyone. Small waist, huge legs, great muscle bellies. If he was 5’9 he’d be your champion.

25398-william-bonac-77_final.jpg

The rest:

Roelly Winklaar (6th) showed us a physique straight out of Dr. Frankenstein. Look I know that many of you all will think he should win. He doesn’t get lean enough, he isn’t aesthetic, but damn is he huge. Markus Ruhl 2.0.

Cedric (7th) showed us that he just doesn’t nail it. Maybe he can’t, maybe his body won’t let him get leaner. He has an ideal physique to some.

McCarver (8th) is 25 years old. Yes only 25 years old and stood close to 285-290 pounds. If he would have been able to lean out another 5-10 pounds, he may have been top 5.

Josh Lenartowicz (9th) had a hell of a debut. He was shredded. Still needs to add some mass to his chest, but looked amazing.

Justin Compton (10th) has the muscle, just needs to dial his conditioning. He is young, he will continue to get better.

Victor Martinez (11th) would have been top 8 in any other Mr. Olympia the last 10 years. Unfortunately this year was stacked.

21797-roelly-winklaar-83_final.jpg35912-dallas-mccarver-15_final

Everyone else:

Nathan DeAsha (12th) could have been anywhere between 8-12. He looked insane. See if he does damage at the Arnold next year.

Steve Kuclo (13th) needs to go back to the drawing board. Looked okay. Not his best.

Ben Pakulski (14th) nailed his conditioning but everyone knows that his legs are world class, and everything else isn’t.

Akim Williams, Michael Lockett, Lukas Osladil, and Brandon Curry weren’t ready.

Hall of Famer Kevin Levrone:

I cannot talk bad about a champion like Kevin. Kevin is 52 years old, and had only been training for a few months when he jumped into the Mr. Olympia on a special invite. I hope I look half that good at 52!

1257-kevin-levrone-223_final

Summary:

Phil wins #6. This ties him with the great Dorian Yates. He is now one behind Arnold Schwarzenegger and two behind Ronnie Coleman and Lee Haney. I do think that talent is slowly catching up to Phil, but the judges like what Phil brings each year.

Kai Greene was on Jimmy Fallon and not at the Mr. Olympia. Hard to believe that is true. He may have missed two opportunities the past two years to beat Phil.

Can Shawn win next year? Will Dexter continue to compete? Can Big Ramy, Bonac, Compton, Cedric, and McCarver make the gains necessary to win? Will Phil continue his dominance? We will know in 12 short months.
