I'll start a thread with photos from the event, SeaSiren, Robert and I hung out today at the expo, met a ton of pros and watched the Women's Bodybuilding and Figure prelims and the Strongman competition. Looking forward to another three days of fun!

 

 

Muscular Development booth had a competition on their small stage for $10K in prize money! The middle dude took home the $7K grand prize.

Flex Wheeler is super cool. I met him 7 years ago and have seen him a lot since then.

 

It was a great weekend. What a way to spend a birthday...with some great friends and some great athletes who have inspired me over and the years.

 

Now I'm at the airport.....almost "back"

i just realized, you and Ronnie have the same initials Robert. hmmm......

 

I feel like if anyone should have to change that, it would be him, step off Ronnie!!

 

everyone looks great and like you had a super fun time, very cool.

Thanks. I realized that too. It was R.C. and R.C. this weekend and it was a great weekend for that. I have tons of other pics with R.C. I just posted a few.

 

Forget R.C. and R.C. and let's talk about J.S. for a minute.

 

Here is x to the J S x

Great photos everyone. I've been ill these last few weeks, feeling particularly crappy today and in bed, but these photos cheered me up a bit. Rob, you're looking in good shape man, looking really chunky I think. I showed the pictures to my mother

I had a blast! Everyone I worked with was amazing. The event is simply over whelming and my room mates, were wonderful! Am still recovering from the event and the very long drive. Landed 2 modeling contracts on site at the Arnold and made a lot of contacts, so quite an success and delightful experience.

Mike 'Hearn one of my most admirable physiques!!!

 

I'm not feeling Flex all "tat tat tatted up" but he still rocks. Wonder what the tats look like with no shirt... just curious if the tats extenuate his physique...
