    212
    Clarida and Watson looked great. I liked the top six guys, actually. I thought Benthin in 6th was better than 5th-place Ahmad Ahmad. Mahmood Al Durrah in 4th was impressively wide across the top on the front double. Ahmed Elsadany in 3rd had a very good side chest and great balance, but his quads were very smooth, especially on the abs/thigh shot. Former Blackstone Labs guy Aaron Clark 16th/DNP? On his Instagram he said there were areas in his life/health (mental/physical) that need to be dealt with before stepping onstage again. He said he's going to channel his energy into healing issues that he's created.


    CLASSIC
    This was between Divine Wilson's upper body and Regan's full quads. I preferred Wilson's arms, abs, conditioning -- all that stuff. I'm not a fan of vacuums, but Regan's vacuum (as well as his shoulder width) helps balance his underdeveloped arms with his full quad sweep.

    OPEN
    I was pretty disappointed with the main show here. De Asha's added size and is super full through the arms and legs, but his conditioning was poor and his obliques have really thrown off his physique. It's no longer a v-taper because the obliques stick out above his waist interrupting the taper to the waist. In September this would not be a top-6 Olympia look.

    Also disappointing was Beyeke / Maxx / Akim in 8th, 9th and 10th respectfully. They all have the tools to be higher than this obviously. I will say that Akim looked the hardest. Sometimes it's difficult to see it with his skin tone, but he definitely looked the hardest of the three guys here. I would have had him 8th.

    Rafael Brandao in 6th had a very nice shape to his physique. Balance. Good condition. He stood out to me among the blocky guys in front of him and the soft guys behind him.

    Michael Kefalianos 16th/DNP looked decent for his age. Like all old guys his legs are going more up and down and his waist ... side to side. But the condition is still okay and he loves training and competing. He's a bodybuiding lifer.

    MEN'S PHYSIQUE
    Raymond Edmonds deserved his win. Big chest and shoulders and shrink-wrapped. 2nd-place Akeem Scott was very wide with a big, big back. 3rd and 4th Suragah Shabazz and Ondrej Kmostak have very good structures. If Kmostak can add some side across the chest/shoulders he'll be winning shows.

    WOMEN
    Physique and Bikini divisions only had 10 competitors in each. Was there a limit? No big names. Good conditioning in physique. I like the top 4. The top 5 in Bikini were decent, but with some different kinds of looks. I liked the definition that 5th place Kim Gutierrez brought to the stage.
