I was back to 244 pounds onstage again, as heavy as I’d ever been—I’d say I was about 80 percent of my best. I wasn’t as good as I was last year, not even close to it, but the goal was to give it my best shot. You never know where Silvio will be [conditioningwise]. Silvio shocked me, and I learned my lesson with that guy—he will always be in top shape. I did add more size to my back and my quads. Some people told me I gave up symmetry by adding the weight, but you can’t judge a physique onstage that’s not really ready. The car is not polished. You can’t judge the color.
