Musclemania® Australia Teenage Champion Adika Njemanze (c) was a lucky one to be at the Muscle Camp in Sydney last night hosted by Simeon Panda (l) and Ulisses (r). Adika says, "What an amazing experience! I see them on Facebook and YouTube and then all of a sudden right in front of me - there they were. The two are humbled, well disciplined athletes. I hope to one day reach the heights that they have and share it with others as they have."
Muscle Camp Tour with Simeon and Ulisses will continues next month in Germany. Dates posted soon.
Serbian natural bodybuilder Aleksandar Vukicevic has been training for 10 years. The 6', 202 lbs., 24 year old physical education school teacher competed at '14 Musclemania® Balkan and wants to take on the world's best naturals at MM in Las Vegas. "SInce the show last year, I have trained for symmetry and condition," Alek says. "I have improved my physique a lot, especially overall mass. I think I can handle an international show and show a really aesthetic physique." If Alek can get his US visa, he'll be in Las Vegas in November. In the meantime, he'll be on stage at MM Rome in May.
Mexican bodybuilder Rob Franzoni continues his natural journey. The 5'8", 180 lbs., 21 year old video producer is training for Musclemania® Mexico in May. "I had learned a lot and am focusing on training for symmetry and conditioning," Rob says. "Every time I compete, I learn more about my body and what makes it work - off season, contest prep and show time. My physique is in a constant evolution."
Musclemania® Pro Chang Geun Kim is one of Korea's most popular natural bodybuilders. Over the past 5 years, this impressive 5'9", 207 lbs., Seoul trainer has risen among the MM ranks. "I started training because everyone encouraged me to get into bodybuilding," Chang says. "But, I was hooked from the start and have kept a serious training and nutrition plan since the beginning. I am lucky to have small bones and joints but with mesomorphic type muscle. I grow fast but I keep the diet super tight and don't gain much fat. I got to watch my water, but I shed that quickly." Chang was a Top 5 Finalist at MM World Pro in Las Vegas and is training for a win at MM Universe in Miami / Ft. Lauderdale.
Musclemania® Colombia Physique Julian Tanaka looking lean and ready as if he had another show tomorrow! The 5'8", 190 lbs., 27 year old businessman says he maintains his condition all season. "I just never cheat a meal," Julian states. "I always eaty clean and cheat maybe one meal a week just to satisfy my urges. I got a little out of shape after the show last month, but it was a bunch of water and disappeared pretty quick." Julian's next show will be MM Rome in May.
As an US Army Infantry Combat veteran, Jose Marmolejos served many missions in Kosovo. Now, the 5'9", 170 lbs., 30 year old environmental engineer is training to battle at Musclemania® New Mexico in Albuquerque in May. "I've competed in other shows," Jose says. "But this will be my first natural show and I looking forward to competing with my equals." Currently residing in El Paso, Jose was raised in Boston.
At 5'10", 191 lbs., 19 year old bodybuilder Clyde Mataj after his workout this morning. "The chest workout was epic! Unless I'm about to puke, pull a muscle or pass out, I'm not gonna stop. I have no limits. I dream big, I work hard." Clyde has been training for barely 3 years. The Michigan resident and lifetime natural bodybuilder trains twice a day and is training for Musclemania® Superbody™ in September. "It will be my first show and contest diet, so I have already started to see what's working," Clyde says.
