IA Daily: Branch Warren, The Final Countdown? (Arnold ’15)

admin February 25, 2015 Comments

In the prestigious history of the Arnold Classic, there aren’t many men who have had more success on one of bodybuilding’s biggest stages than Branch Warren. At nearly forty years old, the Texas Titan is just days away from making yet another pilgrimage to Columbus, OH where he’s already found himself land in the winner’s circle on two separate occasions.

After a series of gruesome injuries sidelined him through much of the 2012 and 2013 seasons, Branch rebounded in a major way last year with a win at the Europa Dallas and 6th place finishes at both the Arnold Classic and Olympia.

This time around Branch is facing even stiffer competition, including a lineup that features an up and coming Justin Compton, and the man responsible for collecting more hardware than anyone in the history of the competition, a guy some people may have heard of – Dexter Jackson.

In classic Branch Warren fashion, it appears he’s been recently breaking the knob off of the intensity button in the gym, and putting his blood, sweat, and tears, into what could very well be his last shot at making a legitimate title push. But if there’s anything we’ve learned about Branch over the years it’s this – you don’t ever count him out.
