Shawn Rhoden | Mr. Olympia 2016



Shawn Rhoden | Mr. Olympia 2016

For those who do not know Shawn Rhoden had a very difficult road to get to where it is now.

He was very successful bodybuilder was still an amateur unfortunately, when his father died he getting drunk, went into rehab for alcohol and finally again returned to bodybuilding and finally became a professional bodybuilder.

Right away, in his first or second year made great things, won a couple of competitions, Arnold Classic, was in the top 5, top 3 Mr. Olympia and indeed is regarded as one of the candidates who can win the title of Mr. Olympia 2016.

Last year he had this problem that was his belly bulging, probably because of the large quantities of food. Due to digestion, which is not good at this stage of definition. His body was all kept, nothing went out. That is why it is so aesthetically ugly it looked.

Is he someone who can win the Mr. Olympia 2016, of course. He’s not someone who deals with a lot of social networks, not too sociable, not the kind of guy you can sit down and talk kidding with him. But he was again very charismatic, charming and certainly one of the best bodybuilders of today.

Also Shawn Rhoden is a bodybuilder who has a minimum of pounds on stage, especially in the Mr. Olympia. But simply have great, beautiful, round muscles. When you see him on stage, he looks great.

Kai Greene had one time 15kg more than him, but when Shawn Rhoden fit next to him does not look anything less. Therefore, we say that is important that the visual effect that you get when you are on stage.

Shawn Rhoden has a beautiful classic lines of muscles, perfect pose and we see no reason why he would not be a candidate who can win mr. olympia 2016.

Dexter Jackson | Mr. Olympia 2016

Dexter-Jackson motivation


Dexter Jackson | Mr. Olympia 2016

We continue our series of articles about Mr. Olympia 2016. Bodybuilder which we will comment on and see what his chances in this competition, it is no less than Dexter Jackson.

Dexter Jackson has won the same number of wins on the pro competitions as Ronnie Coleman, who was 8x Mr. Olympia. If Dexter Jackson wins one more competition, maybe if he win the Mr. Olympia. He will be most successful bodybuilder in history so far.

Dexter Jackson has 47 years, which is incredible that a man in that age is so good-looking and still wins in competitions.

This year he won the Arnold Classic in Africa and won the New York Pro.
Dexter Jackson was the 2008 Mr. Olympia and won the 5 Arnold Classics.
While there was competition Master Olympia and there’s even won.
In fact there is no Pro competition in his career in which he did not first no competition in which he was not in the top 5 or top six at worst.
This is one excellent bodybuilder, last year was very tense between him and Phil Heath. Many say that the trophy should have gone into his hand but we will see this year.

We firmly believe that he could easily be in the top three, because he definitely now got into his mature years for bodybuilding and what he achieved is amazing.

If Phil Heath appears in form as last year, we believe that Dexter Jackson could win the Mr. Olympia 2016.

GUSTAVO BADELL | Bodybuilding Motivation | VIDEO

Debut season as IFBB Pro: 1998 German Grand Prix, the ninth place
The best placement of the Mr. Olympia: 2004-05, 3rd place

During the first 6 years of professional career, he competed 17 times. 9 times ended with no result or was below the 15 cities, only three times in the top 10. He was very massive and solid proportions, but he is constantly out in bad shape. Once he was in shape, and in 2002, took the 3rd place. That gave him entry into the Mr. Olympia that year, where he finished 24th out of 25 competitors. Painfully?

The following year he went only in one competition, where he also lost his placement. There would most of them threw the towel and give up, but he was finally in good shape and in the spring of 2004 finished seventh at the Arnold Classic. After that is done the biggest (positive) shock in his career, when in 2004 entered the top 3 at the Mr. Olympia, but also repeated a year later. Three times he finished in the top 10 in the competition, and in those years he won three titles in other competitions.

His incredible leap of 21 places compared to two consecutive Mr. O competition (24th place at once, 3rd place to the next) record that will probably never be broken.

Uncrowned kings of bodybuilding


Uncrowned kings of bodybuilding

We all know the great thirteen that prides itself with Sandow statuette as the supreme award of professional bodybuilding. But attention should be paid to those that have never reached the glory, but they should have …

1st Kevin Levrone


The Maryland Muscle Machine’s icon of his time. Described as a “cool guy” premium proportions was the best in its variation side chest pose. Shoulders as mountains and hands which are not many could boast made him challenge for absolutely everyone. He has won numerous professional competitions, there were rumors about a possible Olympia title. He knows what it’s like to have a silver or gold medal is still somehow a step ahead. Kevin everyone knows and very specific method of preparation, and the fact that a good part of the year did spend almost all of the resting and then a few months before the competition, “put in the maximum speed”. For many today, Kevin one of those who were able to carry Olympia title and it’s hard not to see why not.

2nd Flex Wheeler


Kenneth Wheeler was perhaps the greatest potential. It is said that in some competitions had not had any real preparation, and always tearing up the stage. Nicknamed the Sultan of symmetry. All on his figure was as crossed out from the opposite side. It looked like a nice transition between the old and the new age, and although he was not on the level with a huge, never looked small. The biggest clash had 98. It was a historic night in which they remained standing only Flex and Coleman, as at the end of all, we all know it.

3rd Shawn Ray


Sugar Shawn Although small, it was dynamite in every sense. He won the competition and the fans, dealt with self-promotion. Shawn was everywhere, except at the top of Mister Olympia. Several times well shook the throne of Dorian Yates, and out of shape never appeared. Master posturing and theatrics – videos of his routines are now the most watched on YouTube when it comes to presentation on stage. Shawn Ray has left an indelible mark on bodybuilding, and that Sandow that time went to him, sport might have been different!

Of course, there are bodybuilders who were able to knock down the occasional king of bodybuilding, but when it comes to the recognition and effective career, these three are far above the rest of the pack. Flex, Levrone and Ray have set standards that are only Mister Olympia could overcome!

Mr Olympia 1980 | Bodybuilding history | Arnold Schwarzenegger Winner

Mr Olympia 1980

Mr Olympia 1980

The 1980 Mr. Olympia contest was an IFBB professional bodybuilding competition held on October 4, 1980 at the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia.

The event was one of the most controversial and debated competitions in bodybuilding history. While training for his acting role in the 1982 film Conan the Barbarian, Arnold Schwarzenegger stunned the bodybuilding world by unexpectedly coming out of retirement and entering the Mr. Olympia contest one day prior to the event and after having trained for only eight weeks prior. When asked about his decision to enter the competition, Arnold said “we’re going to start shooting the first few scenes (of Conan) in October, and so I really wanted to be muscular because the idea was that Conan was a very muscular, heroic looking guy, and that I should be in top shape… the closer I came to this competition more people started speculating on the idea that I would be competing and the more I started thinking about the possibility. And so around 3 weeks or 2 weeks ago I decided, well, I think it would be a kind of an interesting challenge to do something in 8 weeks that most of the guys do, preparing a year or two years in advance.”

Frank Zane, the defending three-time Mr. Olympia champion, entered the contest after recovering from a life-threatening injury. Although Zane had completely recovered and had retained his definition, much of his muscular size from the year before was missing. Other favorites at the competition, including Mike Mentzer, Chris Dickerson, and Boyer Coe, were in excellent condition making the 1980 event one of the most competitive Mr. Olympia contests.

After final judging, Arnold was declared the winner of the contest, a decision that was criticized by attendees and competitors because Arnold lacked his usual size and muscular definition. Many audience members booed as the results were announced. After accepting the runner-up position, Dickerson jumped off stage yelling “I can’t believe it!”. Although Coe and Mentzer were tied for fourth in scoring, Mentzer was given the fifth place award. Mentzer was outspoken in his belief that he was the victim of politics and conspiracy. Zane reportedly threw his trophy against the wall backstage.

During his acceptance speech, Arnold acknowledged how close the decision was, saying “I have to be very honest, that this was the highest level of competition that I have ever faced in any competition in my life”.

In the aftermath of the competition, many of the competitors, including Frank Zane, Coe, Mentzer, and Walker, vowed to boycott the 1981 contest. CBS Television attended and filmed the 1980 contest but decided not to air the contest on broadcast television as planned. It was the last time the Mr. Olympia contest was filmed by an American broadcast television network.

Arnold Schwarzenegger won his seventh Mr. Olympia and officially retired from professional bodybuilding.

Mr Olympia 1980 unlike previous contests which had two weight devisions (above and below 200 lbs), this contest had no weight divisions forcing large and small bodybuilders to compete directly against one another.
The loss and resulting controversy had a major impact on Mike Mentzer personally and professionally, it would be the last time he competed in professional bodybuilding.
