Kai Greene gets invitation to 2017 Mr. Olympia

Kai Greene gets Special Invite to 2017 Mr. Olympia

Will Kai Greene Compete at 2017 Mr. Olympia?

Kai Greene gets Special Invite to 2017 Mr. Olympia

Breaking News: Kai Greene gets special invite from Jim Manion to Mr. Olympia 2017. This news was released this weekend and it shocked the bodybuilding world. Typically to qualify for the Mr. Olympia you have to either win a bodybuilding show or qualify on points during the calendar year. Due to the fact that Kai hasn’t competed since the 2016 Arnold Classic, it was looking as if Kai was going to sit out the 2017 season.

Will Kai Green Compete at the 2017 Mr. Olympia?

With just 12 weeks to go until the Mr. Olympia, I give it about a 10% chance that Kai competes. It normally takes 16 weeks of dieting and training to get ready for the Olympia and although Kai stays in great shape year round, I don’t see him jumping into the fray this year. It is disappointing because I think the Olympia needs Kai.

If Kai competes, can he win?

If Kai competes, he is destined to be in the top 2, and if Phil is at 90%, Kai can dethrone the champ.

 

Stay tuned for more breaking news.

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.

2015 Bodybuilder of the Year Awards

This is Team Nutrition Train’s 1st Bodybuilders of the Year Awards where the winners get absolutely nothing but the prestige and honor of winning this such lowly award.

 

The categories:

  • Rookie of the Year
  • Surprise of the Year
  • Disappointment of the Year
  • NPC Bodybuilder of the Year
  • Pro Bodybuilder of the Year

Rookie of the Year

Nominees: Dallas McCarver, Kim Jun Ho, Michael Lockett

Winner: Dallas McCarver

Dallas is the new X-Frame that bodybuilding desperately needs. While Cedric can’t get into shape, and Toney Freeman is running out of time, Dallas is young and is still growing.

11909366_1465719203733418_1695268715_n

Surprise of the Year: 

Nominees: Dexter Jackson, Branch Warren, William Bonac

Winner: Dexter Jackson1874-dexter-jackson-237_final

Branch came back gnarly and shredded in 2015, William Bonac is the new giant killer, but Dexter wins Surprise of the Year. Dexter won the Arnold for his record fifth time, then finished second to only Phil Heath in the 2015 Mr. Olympia.

Disappointment of the Year:

Nominees: Cedric McMillian (for failing to get in shape), Kai Greene (for failing to sign a document to compete in the O), Zane Watson (Arrested)

Winner: Kai Greene

Sigh, the pictures heading into the O showed Kai Greene primed and ready to take on Phil, but unfortunately the documents were never signed and Kai did not compete at the Mr. Olympia. Many say that he was “banned”, in which he was not. He was given a document to sign and it didn’t get signed. It was probably over negotiations of his likeness, his new supplement line, or who knows what. Overall he was a huge disappointment to his fans.

521391

NPC Bodybuilder of the Year:

Nominees: Cody Montgomery, Sergio Olivia Jr.

Winner: Cody Montgomery

Although Sergio looked great getting his pro card, Cody Montgomery is on a roll! 3 x Teen USA, Youngest Mr. USA in history, Cody has steamrolled the competition and expects to make his 2016 debut soon.

15845_9i5jupka

Pro Bodybuilder of the Year:

Nominees: Phil Heath, Dexter Jackson, Flex Lewis, Jose Raymond

Winner: Dexter Jackson

I can hear people say “but Phil won?”. Phil did win, but he competed only once. Dexter is in his mid-40’s and won the Arnold Classic for the 5th time, and finished 2nd at the Mr. Olympia, 7 years after winning his only Mr. O. Phil winning his 5th Olympia is impressive and puts him 1 behind Dorian Yates, 2 behind Arnold, and 3 behind Ronnie and Lee.

Male and Female Body Types- What are you?

BannerBlissMale and Female Body Types

There are three main body types for males and females. These are: Ectomorph, Mesomorph, and Endomorph. Knowing which body type you have can help you design a diet and training program to help you optimize results.

Note: Use the following calculator to calculate your BMR. http://www.bmi-calculator.net/bmr-calculator/ 

body_types1

Ectomorph: Skinny, lanky, and lean muscle.

Ectomorphs are characterized as skinny, lean, and lanky body types. They typically have narrow shoulders and narrow waists. They have a hard time putting muscle on, but typically have naturally lower body fat percentages.

To Gain Muscle: Ectomorphs should eat several meals a day (6+) with high protein and high carbohydrates. Cardio isn’t as important for this body type. Heavy weights should be used to help build muscle. Eat 500+ calories more than your BMR.

To Lose Fat: Ectomorphs should eat several meals a day (6+) with high protein, but low carbohydrates. You want to eat several meals to help preserve muscle and burn fat. High Intensity Interval Training for cardio should be used to help shred the fat and retain as much muscle as possible. Heavy/moderate weights should be used to build muscle. Try to eat around your BMR.

Ectomorph Examples: Skinny Girls and Me!

Body-Types-Women                               BxNXyBZCAAELWui

Mesomorphs: Wide shoulders, big chest, and muscular.

Mesomorphs are just born with muscle. Typically have body styles that include wider shoulders, bigger chest, and gain muscle very easy. Mesomorphs also gain fat easier than ectomorphs. This style typically does well in physical sports and bodybuilding.

To Gain Muscle: Eat several high protein, low-moderate carbohydrate meals a day (+6).  Moderate/Heavy weights should be used to build muscle. Eat 300-500 calories more than your BMR.

To Lose Fat: Eat several high protein, low carbohydrate meals a day (4-6). High Intensity Interval Training and extended cardio several times a week.  Moderate/Heavy weights should be used to build/maintain muscle. Try to eat 300-500 calories less than your BMR.

Mesomorph Examples: Christina Holston and Phil Heath

1910272_10206574804423629_4320873948108333341_n                                8895-phil-heath-261_final

Endomorphs: Wide hips, wide shoulders, and gains fat very easy.

Endomorphs are “big boned people”. Typically hold much more fat than the other two body styles. Endomorphs have problems losing fat but can gain muscle pretty easily. Endomorphs do very well in powerlifting and strength activities.

To Gain Muscle: Eat high protein, low carbohydrate meals several times a day (6+). Heavy/moderate weights with little as possible rest between sets to keep heart rate up. Finish workouts with 15-30 minutes of cardio 3-5 times a week to prevent fat gain. Stay around your BMR and slowly increase it week to week until you see optimal gains.

To Lose Fat: Eat high protein, very low carbohydrate meals several times a day (6+). Keep healthy fats moderate, and eliminate as much non-healthy fats. 30+ minutes of cardio 5 times a week. Lift moderate weights with as little rest between sets as possible. Try to eat 500+ calories less than your BMR.

Endomorph Examples: Eddie Hall and girl below

maxresdefault three-body-types-endomorph

Other Body Types:

These are the three most common body types. There are people who fit multiple body types. We call them Ecto-Mesomorphs and Meso-Endmorphs.

Ecto-Mesomorphs: Very lean, lots of muscle.

Ecto-Mesomorphs have the best body style in my opinion. They typically are lean year round but hold a ton of muscle. They typically have average shoulder width with a ton of muscle. Typically keeps fat levels low year round.

Ecto-Mesomorph Examples: Dana Linn Bailey and Sadik Hadzovic

images        sadik-jeans2

Meso-Endomorphs: Huge, lots of muscle, and wide.

Meso-Endomorphs are born big and muscular. Typically have wider waist and shoulders, retain some fat, but have lots of muscle.

Meso-Endomorphs Examples: Markus Ruhl and Valerie Adams
