So I talked to a guy I'll be competing against this coming April in Davenport, Iowa. It's a combination of the NPC Iowa and Midwest Open. Two shows in one day.
I just got off the phone with Chris (first photo) as he was cool enough to explain how things are going to work (this is my first show) and let me know that these two other monsters are showing up as well.
This is all just experience for me, I'd be kidding myself if I thought I'd actually be competitive with these guys but still cool none-the-less.
Here's Chris. Super cool guy, hes the only reason I even know about this show. I dont know when this pic was taken but he's going to be coming in this year much bigger. He used to work with Dante Trudel as well back in the day.
This guy is a freak, 6'2, 260 on stage!! His name is Eric Posejtal. Luckily hes not a Iowa resident so he wont be doing the Iowa part of the show lol.
Here is the last guy named Bryce Holmes. He lives really close to me and he'll be doing the Iowa show. Lots of size but not so much symmetry.
All three are National level competitors.
