Hey, does anyone else plan to compete in bodybuilding in 2006? I'll create another post topic like this for other sports competitions too.

My first bodybuilding contest of the year is quite fitting for me. It is on Earth Day (April 22nd), which is also my sister's birthday (she influenced me to become vegan 10 years ago), and it's on the same stage I won on last year becoming a vegan champion bodybuilder.

Then I plan to compete the next week out in Arizona. If Topher is still there he'll come and watch :)

Then I hope to do a bunch in California later on in the summer and fall.

Those are my contest plans. Anyone else getting up on stage?

-Big Rob

well im not going to be competing in bodybuilding, but the thread was entitled 'is anyone competing in 2006' so here goes!

i hope to compete in some sort of amateur strongman competition at some point later in the year. at the moment i need to slap on loads of mass and strength in order just to make the standard.

i would also like to compete in a powerlifting competition at some point too. i have no illusions that i will do well, but i have to start somewhere!! :lol:

Rob, you're nuts! :shock:

Take some time to build muscles - you competed just recently! ;)

Little John, that's a great plan! Even if you don't win the first time, even if you finish last, as you say, you have to start somewhere and experience is a great part of it! Good luck with you training for it! :D

Unless they have an old fat man's category for bodybuilding I'll have to duck out for this year :D

However, I'm currently filling out my contest applications for both Chicago's Strongest Man and the Ford's Gym Strongman comp that I entered last year, and I plan to make at least 2 more comps between summer and fall as well. Then I'll probably make the Hudson Open powerlifting meet in October to round out the year!

Hey Robbie!

Yeah, that will be fun. Last year Alex (Daywalker) and I competed on the same day. That was a great time as we compared contest prep tips and photos. We both ended up 2nd that day, but it was a great time.

I look forward to April. Let's go get em!

-Robert

I have thought about it. But I just don't feel like shaving. Maybe I can compete without shaving.

What sport it is you're talking about?
BB competition is NOT possible without shaving. :lol:
Or are you talking strongman/powerlifting contest? ;)

Do it without shaving, see what happens. Sounds like discrimination to me!

You have a good point. Now I just have to find a way to be comfortable while being (almost)naked in front of a crowd.
