      Some of the other competitors who will be there:

      Martin Kjellstrom @ 308 lbs a few weeks out! Working with Dennis James, and he said on his FB that he is planning to bring Martin in great conditioning at @ 280's. We will see how it goes.

      Team Menace athlete Martin Kielstroem in preparation for the Arnold Classic Europe. This morning Martin weighted in at 308lbs. The goal is to bring him to the Arnold somewhere in the 280's which will make him one of the bigger guys in the show.

      In this lineup getting in top 10 will be an achievement for him! He is a White JOJ... on top of that Alexy is not an American! A top-heavy Russian... do the "math" yourself!
