Musclemania® Pro Chul Soon pumped and ripped in Las Vegas for MM World Pro Championships last November. The 5’9″, 200 lbs., Korean sensation is training for MM Universe in June. “I want to win in Miami. The Universe was my first show in America 7 years ago,” Chul explains. “It would be a dream come true.”  Since beginning his bodybuilding career, Chul has turned it into a commercial success appearing movies, commercials, endorsement deals, personal appearances and much more.
Musclemania® India bodybuilder Vivek Rock competed for the first time last month. “I have been training for 8 years, but just never competed,” Vivek says. “I have been natural all my life, so when I heard MM was coming to India, I started training for it.” The 5’8″, 165 lbs., 23 year old personal trainer now wants to compete again. “It was really something great! A super experience to be on stage, especially with other natural guys. I never wanted to go against the steroid boys, so this was everything I wanted and more. I will be back for more this year.” 
At 6’1″, 200 lbs., Musclemania® America Junior Champion Brandon Flihan is training for the new season. The 22 year old junior, lifetime natural bodybuilding says, “Currently I’m on a lean bulk diet and things are going very well. It seems my body is enjoying more food and is responding very well, growing quite a bit.” Brandon will make a special guest appearance at MM Orange County in May.
Musclemania® Paris Physique star Raqieb Balaydin looked incredible today after his workout. He says, “I’ve trained my abs hard today. I’m not as shredded this time of the year but still have to train abs. Remember: there is no off season! It’s all about the winter gains. Starting from tomorrow I will add more carbs to my diet, because for me it’s all about lean bulking. I try to stay lean even when putting on mass, so you can see what happens to your body when you train. It’s keep me motivated.”
The 5’8″, 185 lbs., Dutch natural bodybuilder is training for his MM Pro debut this season.
After making his Musclemania® Pro debut in Las Vegas, Burley Goss says his training is now focused on MM Universe in Miami / Ft. Lauderdale. The 5’9″, 210 lbs., English school teacher from South Africa says, “I was disappointed with my 6th Place finish, but am energized to shock train my muscles and bring a new physique to Miami.”
Kwame Adom has developed a top level, natural physique having won both of his first two shows this season. But the 5’7″, 175 lbs., Connecticut athlete says he swears by his atypical bodybuilding diet. “My diet is pasta, pizza, burgers with occasional ice cream,” Kwame proudly admits, “I don’t deviate from this diet. I have a unique physique and I must eat “dirty” to maintain size. I’m one of a kind when it’s time for shredding.” Kwame says he’s bumping up his game and will be moving onto Musclemania® shows next season. “My goal is to prevail at MM New England in May so I may clash with the Titans in Las Vegas in November. I’m overly excited to step on the MM stage.”

Musclemania® Paris natural stars Bertrand Lim (c) and Medhi Daoud (r) training yesterday with a friend. Bertrand (5’6″, 170 lbs.) took 2nd at both MM Paris LW Class and MM World LW Class this season while Medhi (6’3″, 225 lbs.) won MM Paris HW.  It was there first competition and now they seem to be driven for more.  “Coming in 2nd Place and almost winning was an incredible experience,” Bertrand says.  “But, knowing it was just one point difference is really pushing me to be perfect next time.  I am training for more size on my arms and back.  It will be a different physique and result next time.”
