2021 IFBB Europa Orlando Pro Figure Results

2021 IFBB Europa Orlando Pro Figure Results…This was a HUGE weekend for IFBB Pro Figure with Jessica Reyes Padilla winning another show, the 2021 IFBB Europa Orlando Pro. And right there beside her was an absolutely phenomenal top 5, it was really spectacular! With contests like this, it’s clear that this year’s Figure Olympia is going to be amazing…

Female Olympian Physique Updates

Female Olympian Physique Updates…A few weeks ago I did a video showcasing physique updates from the top three 2020 Olympians in each division, and this week I thought it was time to look at physique updates from the 4th, 5th and 6th place winners. It’s really fun to hear the feedback from the judges regarding the placings, and it is even more fun watching the athletes train and adjust their physiques to comply with that feedback. The offseason is really a spectacular time of change and it’s awesome when the ladies take us along with them (but also totally reasonable for them to keep it private, too; to each his own!)…

Olympia 2021 Qualification Rules and Physique Updates

Olympia 2021 Qualification Rules and Physique Updates…The IFBB Pro League just released the rules for qualifying for the 2021 Olympia in Bikini, Wellness, Fitness, Figure, Women’s Physique, and Women’s Bodybuilding and I could not be more excited! It’s great to have confirmation of exactly how the points will be distributed, especially for the new Wellness division. We still don’t know when or where the Olympia will be and when the qualification period will end, but that’s ok since it’s the currently off season for our favourite athletes anyway…

Up and Coming New Female IFBB Pros

Up and Coming New Female IFBB Pros…I thought it would be fun to wrap up 2020 with a video showcasing a new female IFBB Pro that I will be keeping my eye on for 2021 in Bikini, Wellness, Fitness, Figure, Women’s Physique, and Women’s Bodybuilding. These women all have something a little extra special and I think they will make some waves in the upcoming competition season. It was an insane year filled with closures and cancellations and devastating losses for many, so for these women to have been able to get their pro cards at all is nothing short of amazing. I can’t wait to see what the future will bring…

2020 IFBB Upper Midwest Pro Figure Results…The 2020 IFBB Candace Carter Upper Midwest Pro Figure show marked the second show of the weekend to kick off the 2021 Olympia Qualification period, and it did not disappoint! I love when competitions point a spotlight at particular categories, it’s nice to see the Figure Ladies getting all the attention at this one. And, it’s so exciting to already be thinking about next year’s Olympia…

IFBB Chicago Pro 2020 Bikini, Fitness, Figure, Women’s Physique, and Women’s Bodybuilding Results….Despite all the challenges that this year has brought, we have made it to the final weekend for qualifying for the Olympia, and what an amazing weekend it has been! There were two shows, first up was the 2020 IFBB Chicago Pro where we got to finally see who qualifies for Fitness, Figure, Women’s Physique and Women’s Bodybuilding….

Monsterzym Pro 2020 Bikini and Figure Results

Monsterzym Pro 2020 Bikini and Figure Results…Ok, this is the most bizarre thing ever, a SECRET IFBB Pro competition. What!?! Even though we all thought the 2020 Monsterzym Pro was cancelled, the bikini and figure competition actually occurred on September 2 and the results and pictures were just released. It’s pretty incredible and unusual, I was so surprised when I saw the announcement on their Instagram…

Savannah Pro 2020 Women’s Bodybuilding and Figure Results

Savannah Pro 2020 Women’s Bodybuilding and Figure Results…The final competition recap for this weekend is the 2020 Lenda Murray Savannah Pro where we got to see a spectacular performance from our IFBB Pro Women Bodybuilders and Figure athletes. What an amazing show with two newly qualified athletes heading to Olympia: Asha Hadley in women’s bodybuilding, and Nicole Zenobia Graham in Figure. It was especially awesome because the contest was live-streamed for free, which is such a great thing for us fans! Many of the shows have not been able to have an audience this summer so they have offered a pay-per-view option–also fantastic, but free is hard to beat…

Tampa Pro 2020 Women’s Results: Bikini, Wellness, Figure, Fitness, Physique, Bodybuilding…We just had EVERY women’s category compete at the 2020 Tampa Pro Show and it was amazing!  The Tampa Pro brought us newly qualified athletes heading to Olympia, our first ever Wellness Pro Winner, and so many points awarded for our top 5 competitors.  It was really fantastic to witness the achievements of these athletes, and to live a little vicariously through them, too…

Arnold 2020 Figure Recap

Arnold 2020 Figure Recap…The Arnold Figure International has a new champion for 2020, Natalia Soltero!  This was such a good competition, I was blown away by so many of the competitors and can’t believe how muscular yet graceful these ladies are!  It’s really inspiring and definitely motivates me to lift heavy in the gym…
