Now it is offical, Men's Physique has hit CA!
I am at the Men's Physique show in Culver city today. www.musclecontest.com The turnout for the event is great. There must be 50+ guys here to compete in the Men's Physique division of the show. A new door has been opened. As head judge Lee Thompson and promotor Jon Lindsay say, "Now there is no excuse for anyone in the audience not to do the show." Obviously a certain amount of conditioning and preparation is necessary; but, this opens the door for so many men that love to train but don't want to put on the sheer mass necessary to be a body builder, or the tiny little underwear.
Check in at 8AM went smoothly...now its a little downtime waiting until prejudging at 11AM.

What are your thoughts on the Men's Physique Division? To the general public, modern top bodybuilders are a curiosity, not an ideal. Few people want to look like that, themselves. I respect people going after what makes them look and feel the way they want. Hopefully this new class will get some legs under it and make a class for those of us that care less about size and more about aesthetics and athleticism.

What are your thoughts on the Men's Physique Division? I think that the Men's Physique Division is going to bring a lot more attention to Body Building overall and attract a new audience of competitors and fans.
Louie currently is studying for Business Management at Orange Coast College. Studying can be a challenge when on the beautiful coast with lots of distractions, but Louie gets both his studying in as well as his time in the gym. After a short chat we move into the chest blast.
An interview to get to the heart of what package to bring to the stage with Isaac Hinds photographer: liftstudios.com
Ian Lauer of Men’s Physique: Thanks so much for your time…I know you’re a busy man so I’ll get right to the questions everyone wants to know. What are you initial thoughts on the new Men’s Physique Division?
Isaac Hinds: I think this new division is great…so long as judges reward physiques that are different from the bodybuilding look. I would like to see more of the fitness model look. Each show will be different especially early on and it’s important to note that who shows up is also going to be important.
Lauer: So do you feel there is a “distinct look” that the judges are seeking out?
