In his latest update, MM Pro Dickens Lambert explains he's got two big current challenges. "I’m writing this update a week before my wife gives birth to our third child. I have started my contest preparation as if I had definitely decided to compete at the Musclemania® Universe in Miami. Since I’m well aware that my wife and kids will always take first place before my competition ambitions, my plan is to hit the stage with the best natural bodybuilders in the world even though I know I may have to forfeit my efforts. Nonetheless, I miss being onstage with Ulisses Jr., Morris Mendez, Jeff Beckham, just to name a few. My objective is to bring the same definition and roundness I brought to MM World in Las Vegas last November. This physical ideal is gradually starting to come to surface. My body is starting to transform. I want to be on the MM stage so bad! My sponsors - Metropolis Gym, Allmax Nutrition, Via Rail and others - are very supportive of my goal. They, too, believe that it is possible to mix family and competitive fitness. The competition preparation itself will be my greatest personal fight ever because I will have to assist my wife more than ever as I get myself contest ready for Miami. If I hit the stage in Miami, be sure that my wife’s mental & physical strength as well as her never ending encouragements sustained by the support of our Bio3Fitness athletes and sponsors will play a huge part in the realization of this ultimate feat. Regardless of the outcome, whether I step onstage to compete with my fellow MM brothers or decide to step back and watch my iron brothers compete, my wise choices will surely make me victorious."

Then I opened my own sport club - Late in 2007, I began competing, appearing in more then 15 bodybuilding and figure shows in the last couple of years." "Now I am doing a lot of weight training and I train many other people from professional athletes to businessmen and house wives, helping them to achieve their goals from improving competition results, to just getting fit and figure correction. I also train at Amsterdam's best kickboxing school, Vos Gym. It's very handy to be strong if you like fighting! :) In general, a strong body gives you a strong mind - handy for whatever you do in life!" Currently, Jenny is training for MM Universe in Miami and MM Europe in Paris.
