The 2013 Mr. Olympia competition is upon us, and Saturday's schedule is filled with a number of events to watch for as we have just two more days before the event ends.
All of the contestants in the men's competition will be looking to unseat Phil Heath, who is the two-time defending champion, and arguably the biggest name in bodybuilding. He will be looking to hold on to his title against other big names including Jay Cutler, Kai Greene and Dexter Jackson.

Top Bodybuilders to Watch
Heath is has some tough competition to watch for, and although he's looked good so far through the events, he still has to get through Jay Cutler.
Cutler is a legend in bodybuilding and has four previous titles at the event. Unfortunately, he hasn't been able to win since 2011 and has had to deal with injuries.
At 40 years old, Cutler's career may be starting to wind down in terms of overall dominance, but this is another opportunity for Cutler to take his fifth Mr. Olympia title, and that would cement him as one of the greatest bodybuilders ever.
When it comes to the Ms. Olympia competition, there might not be a more dominant contestant than American superstar Iris Kyle.
Kyle already has seven titles in a row, along with eight in the past nine years. Based off of that impressive resume, it's really not that hard to make the argument that she's the best Ms. Olympia contestant of all time.
This won't be a cakewalk for Kyle, however, as the competition is fierce on the women's side. Kyle will be going up against the likes of Cathy LeFrancois, Debi Laszewski and Maria Rita Bello on her way to a possible ninth title in 10 years.
When you're on top, things are good, and it looks like Heath has a good shot to stay on top.
So far, people have been impressed with Heath over the weekend. The official Mr. Olympia Twitter account tweeted out that Heath is in the driver's seat up to this point.
Still, Heath has to get through Cutler, Greene and Jackson, and that's no easy task. He may be just 5'9'', but the bodybuilder has nearly perfect physique, and that gives him a great chance to take home his third straight title at Mr. Olympia.
