Arnold Classic history: 2015: 4th; 2014: 3rd; 2013: 6th

Big Mac has won four shows but has been unable to put it together for the majors. With the size and shape combination reminiscent of the great Lee Haney’s, McMillan has the potential to be one of the greatest bodybuilders of this generation—if he can dial it in.

CODY MONTGOMERY

Birth date: 08/06/1994
Height: 5’7″
Weight: 225 pounds

Arnold Classic history: Rookie

Montgomery hit the record books as the youngest overall winner of a pro qualifying contest when the then-20-year-old nabbed the 2015 USAs. With quality size, he can make a splash in his pro debut.

JUAN MOREL

Birth date: 04/02/1982
Height: 5’11”
Weight: 264 pounds

Arnold Classic history: Rookie

Big Diesel has been eager to wash out the bad taste of a poor showing in the latter half of the 2015 season. Morel tipped the scales at an off-season high of 280 pounds, and, if a good deal of that weight translates to his lower half, he has the height and upper body to be in the running.

BRANCH WARREN

Birth date: 02/26/1975
Height: 5’7″
Weight: 245 pounds

Arnold Classic history: 2015: 2nd; 2014: 6th; 2011–12: 1st; 2009-10: 3rd; 2008: 4th; 2007: 7th; 2006: 2nd

Warren has relied on grainy density to carry him to nine pro wins, including the Arnold in 2011–12. He packs plenty of muscle, and you can bet that if he’s on, he will be in the fight for a possible third Arnold title.

LUKAS WYLER

Birth date: 02/04/1987
Height: 5’10”
Weight: 260 pounds

Arnold Classic history: Rookie

Last year’s Arnold Amateur super heavyweight and overall winner will be making his pro debut. He has the overall mass, but competing against men who also combine superior shape will be a tall order for the rookie pro. We’ll see how he stacks up against this talented field.
