This week Jerry Brainum takes a break from the usual question/answer format in honor of the 2016 Mr. Olympia. Having watched the entire competition, Jerry breaks down his thoughts on the top 10 placing bodybuilders in the Men’s Open. He also goes into detail about the somewhat disappointing (yet incredibly inspirational) showing of Kevin Levrone. Who had an upper body that was close to his prime years… but a lower body that was lacking to say the least. Jerry gives the real reason why Levrone had so much trouble in our latest episode of Straight Facts above.
