Interviews

Meet MP Competitor Michael Fitzgerald

 

 

With 450us today is MP Competitor Michael Fitzgerald.  Congrats on a great showing in the division!  What made you decide to compete in the Men’s Physique Division?
After training for three years I felt I was ready to get on stage. I acquired a trainer for diet and cardio and went hard as possible for three months and dieted down for three weeks prior to the show. Also I like the physique division rather than body building just because that’s the type of body I would like to have.

Can you tell us a little about the show in which you recenlty competed?
Yes, it was a small show so I felt it would be perfect for exposure in my first show. I took third place in the novice division and was told I went in too lean at 4% body fat 183 pounds in the over 5”10 division. But I was grateful for third place in my first show...

Meet MP Competitor Kyle Glickman

 

With Arnold 1us today is MP Competitor Kyle Glickman.  What made you decide to compete in the Men’s Physique Division?
Thank you! I decided to compete in the Men’s Physique Division because I am 6’4 and had competed in bodybuilding events in the past but felt I was too tall/long to really go far in the sport.   I have more of an athletic look than a bodybuilding look...

Meet MP Competitor Kerry Buch

 

 

With Courtesy of Tophie Malloy us today is MP Competitor Kerry Buch. Congrats on a great showing!  What made you decide to compete in the Men’s Physique Division?
I decided to compete in men’s physique after a buddy decided he wanted to try his hand in it. He is relatively she and was going back and forth about it, so I told him if he was serious, I would do the show with him.

Can you tell us a little about the show in which you just competed?
The last show I did and the Louisiana championships back in July. It was my first show so I was a little bit nervous and unsure about what to expect within the whole experience.

Withimage(2) us today in MP Competitor Dustin Homan.  Congrats on a great showing!  What made you decide to compete in the Men’s Physique Division?
 I had a friend that competed in the division last year and he had mentioned to me that I should give it a try.  I decided early this year that I would diet down and give it shot.

Can you tell us a little about the show in which you just competed?
The last  two shows I competed in was the Grand Rapids State Championships and Jr. Nationals in Chicago.  I came in 1st place and overall winner at the Grand Rapids and 6th place in Chicago against some really tough competition.  I was happy with that placing for my first national show.  It was a great venue and everything was well run.

Meet MP Competitor Patrick Weitzel

 


Today Pat Warriorwe are talking with MP Competitor Patrick Weitzel. What made you decide to compete in the Men’s Physique Division?
I’ve been training for 9 years now and wanted to be a bodybuilder growing up. I had always trained for bodybuilding but could never pack on as much size on my frame as I needed to in order to compete at the National level for Bodybuilding. I was walking around campus last year and bumped into my buddy Ryan Hediger. He told me about the new division and convinced me to compete with him. I had been told I had “The Look” many times previously so I thought I’d give it a shot. From that point on I knew it was the sport for me...

Meet MP Competitor Brandon Balaban

 

Joiningdfgdfgfdg us today is Brandon Balaban.  Congrats on a great showing!  What made you decide to compete in the Men’s Physique Division?
I have had many friends and family tell me that I should compete. I already planned on competing, I just didn’t’ think I was going to do it so quickly. Everyone is their own worst critic, and I didn’t feel I was ready for the stage. But, after all the positive feedback over the past 2 years I decided to take the first step and entered in an NPC show!

Can you tell us a little about the show in which you just competed?
I competed at the NPC Duel of Champions here in Omaha, NE in the Men‘s Physique Tall Class. Jack and Anne Titone did an amazing job at putting this all together and getting Tony Freeman to do the guest posing.

Meet MP Competitor Mark Bender

 

 

Joiningmark bender rxmuslce us today is MP Competitor is Mark "The Country Boy" Bender.  Congrats on a great showing!  What made you decide to compete in the Men’s Physique Division?  
Thank you so much Ian for the interview! I did bodybuilding 3 years ago and competed in the Natural PA Championships, where I placed 1st in the lightweight division. But deep down, I knew my physique wasn’t built for bodybuilding. My body just can’t carry that kind of mass. So when the Men’s Physique division came out, it was like my prayers were answered and I could truly showcase my physique.
