Musclemania® Mid America Donte Franklin looking insane. It looks like the 6′, 210 lbs., 23 year old car salesman is going to rock the stage this fall. Donte started training when he was 13 years old. “I always had this thing about wanting to look like a muscleman,” Donte says. I started training at home in the garage. I’d lift anything I could find or make. It’s always been my passion.” Donte will guest pose at MM Mid America in October and compete at MM America in Las Vegas.
