Meet MP Competitor Dustin Homan

 

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.

Meet MP Competitor Emmanuel Banks

 

JoiningDSC06894 us today is MP Competitor Emmanuel Banks.  Congrats on a great showing!  What made you decide to compete in the Men’s Physique Division?
 It's a good look. I did well as a bodybuilder, though naturally I'm a small guy. So competing as a middle weight was only going to go so far.

Can you tell us a little about the show in which you just competed?
The IFBB North American Championships. It was my first time competing in a pro qualifier as a men's physique competitor. It was very well organized. Lots of great physiques from bodybuilding to bikini.

Meet MP Competitor David Lees

 

 

Joining 95605us at MensPhysique.com is MP Competitor David Lees.  Congrats on a great showing at your recent competition!  What made you decide to compete in the Men’s Physique Division?  
I used to model when I was in college and training/bodybuilding has always been a huge part of my life.  I saw competing in Physique as a way to merge the 2 together and hopefully make a name for myself.


Can you tell us a little about the Competition you just competed in?
I competed at the IFBB North American Championships in Pittsburgh, PA in Men’s Physique “C” Class.  This was only my second national level/pro-qualifying event.

Meet North American Overall MP Champion Anton Antipov

 

 

Joining anton antipovus today is the Overall MP Champ at the North Americans and new IFBB MP Pro Anton Antipov.  Congrats on the big win!  What made you decide to compete in the Men’s Physique Division?
I wanted to compete for a while, but I was always too slim for bodybuilding. Last year I heard about a new division called Men’s Physique, I saw it as a stepping stone towards bodybuilding, but there is so much room to grow in this division that I decided to stay in it and evolve and grow along with the division itself. On New Year’s I made 12 resolutions, one for each month of this year. One of those resolutions was to step on stage and compete in a Men’s physique show. I did that (at Steve Stone Metropolitan Championships 2012 where I got 4th place), but after stepping off stage I was hooked and wanted to go further with the idea, so I made it a goal of mine to see if I can improve and get 1st place. I started signing up for every show I could and the rest is history...
