Frank Jones is a competitor with unlimited potential. I had the great pleasure of meeting and shooting with Frank at an FMI conference a short while back. Immediately, it was apparent that he had the Physique necessary to take the stage by storm. Frank is a fellow Ohio native and has the Midwestern work ethic to show for it. Recently, Frank took part in the first ever Men's Physique Competition in Kentucky. He placed second and made a top notch appearance. You can be sure Frank is going to continue to work his way up the ranks and potentially win it all in his next show.
When asked his thoughts on this new division he said, "This division has opened another door to allow opportunity. From the one show I have done I see that the knowledge of differentiating body builders from physique is vague. Take my body type for example; I am 5'11 “off-season” 195lbs 6-8% body fat. Competition I am 3-5% body fat and around 185lbs. This would place me in a category of Light Heavyweight. In that class I would be no competition at all. My cousin competes at 198lbs and currently in his “off-season” he is 5'7 245lbs."
