The first IFBB Pro show of 2010 is in the books, as the inaugural Phoenix Pro set a strong precedent for a great year of competition. Stryker Solomon and his crew put together a smooth running and enjoyable contest that featured 79 competitors spread out among Men's Open Bodybuilding, Men's Under-202 Bodybuilding, Women's Bodybuilding, Fitness, and Figure. Leading up to the show, we all had questions as to who was going to show up and if the big names would take the stage in Phoenix, As it turned out, no class was a disappointment.
The 2010 IFBB season kicks off in Phoenix, Arizona next weekend (Feb. 20) with the IFBB Phoenix Pro promoted by Stryker X (who'll be appearing on Heavy Muscle Radio Monday Feb. 15). The top athletes in our sport not only get their first opportunity to hit the stage, but also their first opportunity to qualify for the Mr. Olympia. The show features Men's Bodybuilding, Men's Under-202, Women's Bodybuilding, Figure, and Fitness in what promises to be a great weekend in the warm, dry, air of the Arizona desert.
Rx Muscle, ALR Industries, and JM Management join forces to bring you the next generation of Muscle Girls Inc Radio!
The obvious hole in our Tuesday night radio programming, as of late, begged for the question to be answered: "What happened to Muscle Girls Inc.?" Well, let's just say we weren't in a huge hurry to fill the void because this is bodybuilding's brief "off-season". This Winter anomaly gave us the benefit of shopping around for the most talented and desirable co-hosts available. And because of our promised commitment to the women's side of the sport, we wanted to elevate Muscle Girls Inc. to a whole new level.

This past August, Mike Van Wyck entered his first Canadian National Contest and, to the surprise of all the experts, he emerged victorious with a brand new IFBB Pro Card in hand.
