Good points....

That's too big for 235 unless he was 5'3. Remember he is 5'11' Massive arms and full chest and delts. Every time I have doubts he pulls out something even more impressive. But without a back he can't place top 6 imo.

Like Stan, I'd love for him to win but I have my doubts as to how far he can go. He does have the body of someone 10-20 years younger though and that is respectful in itself.

Palumbo is two years younger than me and looks 10 years older. If was interested in good health and longevity, I would find out everything he did and do the exact opposite!

Isn't it odd though scrum? Look at Levrone. Look at Cutler. Those guys obviously did the same amount of bodybuilding drugs that palumbo did and they look great.

So it's not as simple as what I think your alluding to in terms bodybuilding drugs.

No no, not at all. Look at Levrone, look at Zane. Robbie Robinson. These guys look great. Palumbo on the other hand... Plus all his disciples have only bad skin and the Palumbo gut to show for it. There's something about what he has practised and preached that's really messed up.

https://youtu.be/bvXIH1jp86A very revealing interview from Thursday with Bob Chic. It's a little long but even the first 15 min tell a lot. Reason for competing, probably going to continue competing, body weight in the morning and with food, how he's playing chess with other competitors (with the old back pics). Good stuff in here.

It would be funny if he didn't train his legs at all and went on stage with a world class upper body and legs that would make a physique guy look like Ramy. Lol! I'm sure his legs will be ok. They won't be great but they never really were.

think about it. what do the physique guys wear on stage? knee length swim trucks. Levrone may very well pull a surprise and compete in the physique class.

The ifbb can probably see physique class may have a big future and money making opportunity than traditional bodybuilding. Maybe the whole thing is gonna be a big trick using levrone to lead the way.

Lol. I'm going on record as saying his legs and his whole package will make our jaws drop. I'm calling a 3 or 4th place finish. Give it one more week and we should do an Olympia prediction thread just for fun.

i'll go on record and say if he gets 3rd or 4th it's because the judges are giving him a gift.

if the Olympia is judged as it has been the last 20 years based on size and condition he will not deserve top 10.

all his pics are pumped in the gym and close up. very very very different than how he will appear on stage especially next to monsters. the illusion of difference in size will be vast.

Tough angle on that pic to make a judgement on. Plus who knows how old it is or whether he is standing or sitting.

agree, i feel like he is angled in a way that pushes his hamstring muscle out to make the whole leg appear much thicker kind of like a guy folding his arms and pushing out his bicep. it's an impressive leg but I still find it odd that he's doing closeups with angles. in comparison you have guys like dexter and ramy just standing in front of the camera. i just get the feeling kevin is hiding all his weaknesses. what will he do on stage?

Well he does have the advantage of likely having the smallest waist on the stage. If he does perhaps the illusion will make them appear bigger.

I would still hope for a top 10 finish and its still possible. Look how small that asian guy was hyde was like 220 or 225 on stage and if I recall he has had a top 10 finish maybe even 8th or 9th. I don't think Branch is competing either so Levrone has good chance for top 10.

Edit:

Hidetada "Hide" Yamagishi got 9th place at 2009 Olympia he has since gone to the 212 category now and has been much more successful.

Kevin finally had his interview with Palumbo on RX muscle. He insists he's already better than his last Olympia showing, knowing what cues on his body to look for.

In 2003 he tore his tricep 6 weeks out and was not able to train effectively which is the only reason Dexter beat him.

He also confirmed he was born in 1964 and is 52 years old.

His latest short clip he says He will not cheat the fans, he will not cheat himself, and he will not cheat the sport so he going balls to the wall 100%.

I bet he gets a standing ovation on that stage. Regardless of where he places he will be the winner of the crowd.

If levrones legs are good he can make top 10. Guessing between 8-10th place.

He's already got sunken cheek bones. I bet he comes in better condition than the majority of the top ten and with his mass and small waist on top he'll be top 6.

He smokes Cedric and his muscle bellies are better than Rhodens, and most of those other guys condition always sucks. Just watched Compton live chat and he still looks 4 weeks out, Roelly always looks like shit on stage, Ramy has yet to prove he can come conditioned, McCarver's got some recently enlarged belly action and still a weak back. We will see come show time but at this point if I had money I'd bet Levrone makes top 5 and I personally put him 3rd or 4th.

The Lui is over rating Victor. I don't think he should have even won his last show and there are other pros that feel the same. I don't believe he is at the level of his 2007 showing. His waist is larger and his conditioning isn't as good. Maybe some better muscle than previous but not enough for top 5.

Agree with you Chuck in that Victor probably won't make much of an impact, even in his prime I never thought he was as great as everyone was saying. Disagree in that Levrone will smoke Cedric and Rhoden though. As for Ramy, he will not only have huge mass advantage but a pretty good shape as well. His body shape can somewhat cover up a little lack of condition. I do agree on Mcarver, his stomach is strange on stage. I'll say 6th or 7th if Levrones legs match his upper body and he comes looking close to the levrone of old. If the legs are lagging than hell he could finish dead last or close to it. I don't think there is anything on earth that Levrone can do to make the top 3 unless he is given a gift and it's already decided.

The question is, how close can Levrone come to matching his prime. I don't think he will be able to pull it off at 52. I don't think he'll be close enough to his prime. It goes without saying that prime levrone could win the show but this isn't 1997...

Regardless what he's already achieved at his age is amazing. I'll be pulling for him.

lolol. read the last sentence.

Quote:
Levrone sent Dave Palumbo and update photo of a rear double bicep pose. Kevin told Dave to post it online. Dave said "are you sure?". Kevin said "Yeah baby, post it". (Kevin initiated everything)

Dave the put his RXmuscle water mark on the pic and posted it online.

Immediately, people said that Levrone looked small and flat. Shawn Ray even suggested that Levrone shouldn't even compete.

Kevin then decided to lie.

Levrone accused Dave of posting old pics. As if this whole thing was Dave's fault. Dave has been Levrone's #1 advocate since Levrone announced his comeback.

Dave discussed this whole scenario on his radio show. He wasn't mad. He just said that Kevin was embarrassed. And Dave, being a good friend, had to calm Kevin down regarding Shawn Ray's comments & bodybuilding forum members.

But the fact that a 52 year old man lied about a situation that he created is quite sad. And of course, there is a debate about whether Kevin has lied about his age or not. Who knows. It's all very strange.

On top of all of this, Kevin now claims that he surrounds himself with lots of weapons as he sleeps during his precontest dieting phase, reminding himself that he is "at war".
