Will Samson Dauda Go to Oxygen Gymnasium?

by Christian Duque

When information broke that Samson Dauda was coaching at Oxygen Gymnasium it despatched shockwaves all through the health business. The Prime 3 Olympian and Prime 2 Arnold Traditional Champion who not too long ago dumped longtime coach Milos Sarcev in a really public means seemed to be discovering a brand new house. It was the 2024 Arnold Traditional that many thought he was going to win, however fell quick to 2022 Mr. Olympia Hadi Choopan, the place Dauda could have made his selection to interrupt with Milos.

Hadi used the competition to redeem himself after shedding the Olympia to Derek Lunsford in what many stated was a razor-thin margin. Samson was defending his Arnold title after defeating Nick Walker the prior yr and was believed to have been capable of maintain off The Persian Wolf. However it went past not holding onto the title, it appeared, as Dauda complained of feeling very sick after the Columbus contest and having to go to the hospital to run checks.

There was doubt as as to whether he would compete on the Arnold Traditional UK and plenty of followers, myself included, feared what can be a disaster if he did. To cite Samson, he stated he felt “like his physique was shutting down.” That’s not one thing a man on that stage says fairly often and particularly not on his personal social media platforms. That seems like one thing a media outlet would take out of context or perhaps one thing an insider would say; nevertheless, the champ was very clear and really outspoken on the place his well being was at that time. He confused that his break with Sarcev wasn’t about leaping to a different coach anytime quickly. He wished to make a decisive break after which examine his choices. Because of this he selected to be prepped within the meantime by his spouse who had helped him for smaller contests. And though he did not defeat Choopan on the Arnold UK, he was capable of deliver a fantastic appear like he did on the Arnold USA.

When information that Samson was at Oxygen Gymnasium coaching, quite a few media shops took to the airwaves to emphasize that each one this was, was him coaching there. Others acknowledged he was merely visiting the fitness center. Nick’s Energy And Energy was maybe probably the most vocal in doubting whether or not or not there was a partnership but in addition seizing upon the chance to remind his 1+ million subscribers that Oxygen Gymnasium (hereinafter “OG”) had been largely out of the sport for fairly a while.

NS&P did concede that 2019 Mr. Olympia Brandon Curry continues to coach there, however outlined all the fellows who don’t. He talked about Massive Ramy, Roelly Winklaar, however appeared hard-pressed to withstand speaking concerning the alleged dangerous expertise Regan Grimes had there. In mentioning the outdated information, he reiterated how unhealthy Grimes felt, how a lot mass he gained, and what a waste of time going there was. I’m unsure I perceive why all of that was needed however perhaps there’s dangerous blood there. Possibly not. I don’t care sufficient to analyze. I’ll say that OG is greater than a spot to coach – it’s a lifestyle and so they did many nice issues with many nice champions.

The query is who’s going to coach Samson if he decides to name OG house? Many suspect it will likely be Abdullah and few can deny what he was capable of do with Brandon’s physique. From 2018 to 2019 and past, The Prodigy has made important positive aspects yearly. The identical may very well be stated about different guys who educated there. I gained’t discuss Regan’s expertise. There’s one other man – like Phil Heath and Nick Walker – who merely can’t take criticism. I don’t even know why Regan blocked me, however he certain did.

Some guys simply can’t take any constructive criticism. And the very fact is nobody compelled him to go to OG. He went there as a result of he was one of the vital over-hyped bodybuilders of his day and he was by no means capable of make something occur on stage. He both positioned final or near it. Folks received bored with raving a couple of man who appeared nice on social media and was all however forgotten on sport day. The very fact is he took a chance with OG and it didn’t work out. It’s not like he was doing spectacularly nicely within the placings and went there and all of it went south. He was getting crumby placings – generally in weak lineups. He wanted to show issues round and it didn’t work out. The very fact of the matter is perhaps Samson goes there and it’s a hit for him similar to it was for Brandon and for Roelly after they had been hitting their stride.

Guys like Samson are the following technology and so they’re on high proper now. Samson is so near regaining his Arnold title and from successful his first Olympia that it isn’t even humorous. He’s so near the Sandow he can contact it. Who is aware of if Oxygen Gymnasium can get him that final little bit. I for one don’t suppose there’s any hazard. They’re not going to drastically change his look. Why on Earth would they? He’s an aesthetic powerhouse with nice proportions and implausible move. If something, they’re going to attempt to enhance on that. They’re going to make him sharper and so they’re going to hearken to him as nicely. He’s already gained the Arnold and he’s been a fixture of the Olympia Prime 3. If OG can do with Samson what they did with Brandon, Samson shall be Mr. Olympia.

If all issues had been honest and politics weren’t a factor (and so they most definitely are), Brandon would have gained the Olympia again in 2021. He buried Massive Ramy with greater legs, an in depth again, and much superior conditioning. Nonetheless, the judges gave it to Ramy. For no matter cause, Brandon wasn’t to repeat historical past like Jay Cutler and be the second Mr. Olympia to win again the Olympia after shedding it. He was a much better ambassador, he confirmed super respect to Pittsburgh, and he saved quiet when Ramy (who didn’t even qualify for the O in 2020) took the title from him. That stated, he received screwed similar to Jay did in 2021 and similar to Jay, he didn’t say something. Derek and Hadi are each single yr Mr. O’s. Derek can lose it as simply as Hadi did. The very fact of the matter is Derek is beatable, similar to Hadi is.

If Samson can put all of it collectively for the 2024 Olympia and actually deliver that conditioning in opposition to softer guys like Lunsford, he ought to finest them. And regardless that Hadi could appear to have extra muscle than the towering Dauda, he lacks the aesthetics to essentially be within the dialog with the large man. Solely time will inform what occurs, however I for one suppose that Oxygen Gymnasium could possibly get their second Sandow with Samson Dauda.
