    Default Jay Cutler Vs Branch Warrren (Mr Olympia 2009)



    Great battle!

    I remember watching this live online and Branch was the first guy to walk out. I knew right then and there he was on. Then after a few guys walk in, Jay walks in and it tripled the excitement of the the Olympia at that time.

    Definitely, one of the greatest Mr. Olympia competitions ever.

    Branch came dialed in on that show. Best appearance I ever seen by him.

    They both looked amazing. The sport needs a white Mr Olympia

    Yeah. Branch hit his peak that day; he was full and peeled.

    Unfortunately, people train for instagram now. Who knows. Maybe in several years.

    How did we regress in this sport instead of advance with all the technology in training, diet, supplements etc??? I have a few theories.

    Imagine with more bodybuilding shows in a year than we normally have and there's no 212 division and there's no Classic physique. Just straight big dogs bodybuilding. And we have like up to 50 guys qualified for the Mr Olympia. All of them will get to do their thing on stage like posing routine. But only the top 10 guys will do the posedown. Then these 10 guys are automatically qualified for the next years Mr. Olympia.

    Maybe, this is a dumb idea. I dunno but I'm not an expert.

    I’m usually not one to throw out the racist card but that comment isn’t even thinly veiled.

    The problem with the sport is that people start to get tired of the entire sport being dominated by blacks and the top 10 at the Mr Olympia is like 8 or 9 blacks, people start to get tired of that

    Branch still got a gift. Dexter was no less than 2nd. They did not want Dex standing next to Jay.

    . Dex was definitely better in terms of shape and structure but Branch was bigger than him that day. Maybe that's why he edged out Dexter.

    Dex would have exposed Jay again. It was predetermined that Jay would win.

    I agree, Branch was just incredible, bigger and better than Dexter

    Branch looked great that year. Brought some gnarly back to the sport as it was starting to shift away from that. Unfortunately ran into a motivated and revamped Jay Cutler. Dex looked great. Heath and Kai were on their heels. 2009 was a great year for bodybuilding.
