In all honesty, last year I thought it was awesome and a little lucky that such a young guy took 4th place at the Arnold. The way he's looking this year, I honestly don't see any competition for him on that stage. It's all Ox this year! What huge improvements he's made. I think he's shut everyone up about whether or not it was good to take the O off and focus on making gains!

I wanted to clarify what I said about "lucky". I'm not saying Evan didn't earn his spot. I'm saying that the sport of BB is a game of favorites with no love given to the younger/new guys in the sport. So yes, it as well earned but a surprise to alot of people. But not this year. There will be nothing but a dominant showing by our brother Ox.

Holy fuck, his delts are incredible...I honestly just paused that video during the dips, then looked up Jay Cutler doing dips...and seriously, Ox has my pick. Absolutely blown away with his improvements.

Evan's head is in the right place. In one of the videos he mentioned James Allen's As A Man Thinketh, which--if you look past the religious overtones--is one of the most important literary essays of our time. It basically contends that a man's thoughts are his character. The character influences the man's life. Every action manifests from character. Therefore, and much like cause-and-effect, a man's thoughts are directly correlated with his action (regardless of the spontaneity of the action). To Evan's point, Evan mixes thought and purpose, but at the same time stays grounded in reality. Hell, he's the only bodybuilder I've ever heard say 'there is life after bodybuilding'. That kind of mentality does not guarantee greatness, but certainly provides the opportunity to achieve it.

No one has ever accused me of being a professional in bodybuilding nor an eye to see those that are, but the conditioning is top notch. He'll be the contender for sure.

Got some Q/A with Ox from this week... Here's a sample fellas.

ANIMAL: How has your wife and child changed your outlook as a bodybuilder?

OX: Having a family has had a real impact on how I view some things. For example, Iíve noticed that family seems to have reaffirmed how I feel about bodybuilding specifically and about life in general. First, as a bodybuilder, Iíve never had the ďdo or dieĒ, win-at-all-costs mentality that many seem to idolize. Die for bodybuilding? Yeah right. I donít think so. Die for someone I love? Yes, without hesitation. Bodybuilding has been my passion for a long time now and I will always love bodybuilding. Bodybuilding has given me so much. Iíve learned a great deal about myself through bodybuilding, experienced some of the deepest feelings Iíve ever known, met great people both close to home and abroad, and have tremendous memories that I will carry with me until the day I die. But just the same, Iíve always viewed competitive bodybuilding as a balancing act and as something that has to be approached with a level head and respect. This sport, just like any other sport at an elite level, has real risks. Those risks must constantly be weighed against the potential for reward. And itís not as though I am suddenly able to see the potential risks; Iíve always seen them. Now itís just that much easier to side with caution. As we get older, we have more to lose. As a result, we are less likely to take the bold risks we might have taken when we were younger.



For the rest, stay tuned...

There is no need for videos that are 'Extreme!' or 'Fckin Hardcore bro!'. The dedication and mentality are both very interesting to me. Not to mention humility is the true sign of a gentleman. Glad to see Evan keeping that alive.

I've been that Gold's. It is one of the last gyms of it's kind. It isn't a McDonald's gym like NYSE or Planet Fitness. Nor is it some globo gym/spa like Equinox. It's just the real deal. Hopefully, gyms like that spring up more often.

And I'm done with my mini-rant. Great video series.
