Wolf or Rhoden?
It appears that the decision will be between Dennis Wolf and Shawn Rhoden for the 2014 Arnold Classic Champion. There are never any guarantees, of course, but based on the callouts that seems to be your first and second.
Who would you choose?
Whose physique would you most like to resemble? And why?
Dennis Wolf placing 3rd at the IFBB Arnold Europe
Shawn Rhoden placing 4th at that same contest
Will Wolf triumph over Rhoden at this year's Arnold Classic as well?
Go wolf!!! Besides his high lat insertions he has little flaws.
Besides he has zero calves...its like he had them removed...maybe true...
Rhoden should win...Wolf will win...
Lat inserts? Like implants??

In anatomy, the insertion is a point at which a muscle attaches to a bone, a tendon or the subcutaneous dermal connective tissue.
The origin of a muscle is the bone, typically proximal, which has greater mass and is more stable during a contraction than its counterpart called the insertion. For example, with the latissimus dorsi muscle, the origin site is the torso, and the insertion is the arm. Normally the distal (arm) moves due to having less mass. This is the case when grabbing objects lighter than the body (like someone beginning on a lat pull down machine). This can be reversed however, such as a gymnast doing a front lever, whose arms are stabilized by holding onto a chin up bar as the torso moves up to meet the arm.
The Insertion of a muscle is the structure that it attaches to and tends to be moved by the contraction of the muscle. Insertions are usually connections of muscle via tendon to bone. The insertion is a bone which tends to be distal, has less mass, and has greater motion than the origin during a contraction.
