Not confirmed, looks to be a weak Arnold indeed. Not that Vic would make it much better. Most the top bodybuilders are older guys, you know Kai green is 42? Most people don't realize.

Meanwhile in men physique there is like 40 confirmed.

Seems to be a changing of the guard in bodybuilding, going more towards the classic golden era again. Young people going away from the mass monster era. Probably a good thing. The mass monster while impressive is an unhealthy ticking time bomb in terms of health.

I think the line up will keep things interesting if it was kai or dex we'd automatically know who would win. But I guess you can say the same thing with Rhoden being in there he will probably take it.

We need more classic physique than the blocky shits. Here is the latest pic of Victor that was posted on his IG a few days ago. Definitely smaller in size and looks as if he has aged horribly.

Recovering from injury. May be back but probably won't repeat his look of years past. He's aged fast.

Unfortunately he's not the same Dennis as before. Even if he were to return, it wouldn't be good for him

I just spoke to Nathan and he said that; Rhoden isn't doing it either, Luke Sandoe (new British ifbb) is doing it.

Nathan is currently spending time with his family in the UK after being away for a long haul in Kuwait.

He says he's already qualified for the Olympia and isn't interested in chasing money

According to Peter Mcgough of MD Rhoden is definitely doing it?

You call him up at 8:30 in the morning from bed?

Or by spoke do you mean you read his Facebook? Lol.

Makes zero sense. He could potentially make a real name for himself and win the fucken Arnold classic. Instead he's going to do the Olympia and come in what 8th-10th place at best?

Unless the Arnold classic is actively pushing bodybuilders away an going for the more classic physique shows now none of this makes sense. I don't remember an Arnold classic with this few Bodybuilders competing.

Rhoden isn't doing it either? That's strange. Rhoden lives 40min away from me and I know his cousin. Next time he's in the gym I'll ask what the deal is.

Spoke with Shawn Rhoden's cousin today, this is what he told me:

The Mr. O is the biggest venue in the bodybuilding world. Shawn takes his off season time to get bigger so he can come and place closer and closer to 1st. With the Arnold Classic show, he needs to prep and lean out for that show. Meaning, when the Mr. O shows up, he will not be as big.

Also, Shawn wants guaranteed show-up money, and in the event he wins the Arnold Classic, he wants both the show-up money and 1st place money.

He's getting a call every other day from the Arnold Classic sponsors asking if he'll show. Shawn just tells them the same thing. Guarantee me show-up money and I'll be there. Other than that, its all about the Mr. O.

Show-up money is the money Rhoden wants just to make an appearance and to compete. Whether he wins or not, he wants a guaranteed show-up money. He'll be getting paid no matter what. In the event he won the Arnold Classic, he would have both paychecks

You do that, but after tonight's conversation I had, I doubt he'll do the show.

This is how bad the Arnold Classic will be this year for bodybuilding. The last time we saw Will Harris was 2014 and this was what he looked like. Imagine how desperate the Arnold classic organizers have to be to give this guy a special invite..

Josh Lenartowicz has dropped out of the Arnold due to health issues with his mother in law.
