This past weekend marked the fourth year that the Men’s Physique graced the stage at the NPC Nationals with a slew of men looking to earn their pro card. The first year was back in 2011. Then they only had three height classes. I remember in my height class alone that year there were over 70 guys shooting for that top spot. In 2012 they split the heights into six groups and I was fortunate enough to earn my card in a more moderate sized E class. These same six height classes remain today and the level of competition in each is as strong as ever.
This weekend marked the first time ever for the Felicia Romero Pro show which featuring both Men's Physique and Women's Figure Pro's. There was a solid turnout as 26 MP competitors from all over the nation headed to Arizona to hit the stage as the 2014 season winds to a close. Rodney Razor solidified his spot on the 2015 Olympia stage with the win.
This marked the second year that the IFBB MP Pro’s hit the stage in Louisville, KY for Brent Jones’s Kentucky Muscle show. Head Judge Gary Udit had to work his way through a stacked class of 22 men bringing their best to the stage. As the dust settled, Michael Anderson walked away with another huge trophy to add to his growing collection.
This past weekend marked the second time Men's Physique Pro's took to the stage at the IFBB Sacramento Pro Show. Both Open and Masters classes were represented. The turnout was relatively small for the Masters group, but the open class had 20 men take the stage. Winning the Open class was Dean Balabis while Mike Saffaie won the Masters group.
Just like the weekend prior, there were two IFBB Men’s Physique Pro shows this past weekend. The report on Dayana Cadeau Classic show has already been posted here on RXMUSCLE so chances are good you have already had a chance to review the stage pics and check out the quality of competition. At the same as the time as the men hit the stage at the Dayana Cadeau show nearly 20 more IFBB PRO MP Competitors took to the stage in Phoenix, AZ.
The Top 3 results are in for the IFBB Men’s Physique Division at the 2014 Dayana Cadeau Classic. First place went to Anton Antipov as he solidified his spot at the 2015 Olympia. Matt Acton pulled in second coming off of a very recent win while Denis Gusev grabbed the third spot. Eighteen men took to the stage in Coral Springs, Florida to battle it out in this hard fought competition.
Eighteen of the top IFBB MP Pros are poised and ready to hit the stage this weekend in Vegas. There has been a lot of talk about who’s going to come out on top and walk away with the 2014 title. So who's it going to be? I have put together a complete breakdown of the competitors so you will know what to expect from each of these men as they take the stage in hopes of doing just that and making their mark in the Men’s Physique history book.
