For bodybuilder Juan Diesel, the love affair with bodybuilding began the minute he picked up his first copy of ‘Flex'. Leafing through the pages, he paused at the contest coverage section, and gazed in amazement at the condition achieved by the featured athletes. However, his mind swiftly went from a state of awe to one of total inspiration. After all, if those guys could totally transform their bodies there was nothing stopping him from obtaining similar results. He may have opened that magazine as an average guy but he closed it as an aspiring bodybuilder!

"You were wrong about that girl in LA with the Adam's apple and you are BOTH wrong about this," Romano throws in, pushing an angry index finger into Palumbo's chest. "Once we see Victor back at 100% he will redefine the sport."
Another IFBB New York Pro show is in the bag and, as is always customary in New York City, it was a freak show to remember. However, as far as freak shows go, this was not the end-all to end-all. Prior to the show, on paper, it appeared as though the line-up would be dense, difficult to judge, and pretty incredible to watch. All three appeared to be true. In fact, I can tell you it was pretty incredible to watch, especially since our good friend Evan Centopani won the show. In doing so, this great young hopeful cemented his bright future career by starting off with a win.
