New York Pro Preview - Going Extra Large in the Big Apple

by Joe Pietaro on 05-18-2018 at 12:53 PM
Many people in the industry consider it to be the third most prestigious show on the IFBB Professional League calendar following the Olympia and Arnold Classic (Ohio), respectively. While one can make an argument either way, there is no disputing that this year's incarnation of the New York Pro has the horses in the men's open bodybuilding category.

Twenty six men will be vying for the top spot this coming Saturday night in White Plains at the show run by Steve Weinberger and Dev Francis

Arnold Expo - Larger Crowds But Less Hand-outs

by Joe Pietaro on 03-12-2018 at 02:51 PM

If you're going to attend one expo in the bodybuilding/fitness industry, your best bet is to make it the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio. The weather may not be the best (first weekend in March in the U.S. midwest), but the experience overall makes it worth it. But don't bring an empty suitcase with you to bring back a bunch of sample supplements and T-shirts.

As the years have gone by, the booths have been handing out less and less goodies

For example, the NPC is still the governing

Sad Week for Bodybuilding.

by Joe Pietaro on 08-26-2017 at 03:19 PM
Bodybuilding. Some call it a sport; others a lifestyle. However you choose to categorize it, all of us associated with it in some way, shape or form have had it exposed to the 'mainstream' due to not one, but two tragic incidents that resulted in the death of Dallas McCarver and Rich Piana.

There are so many unanswered questions surrounding both situations and there will be a time where those will be addressed. But now is not the time for that; let the families and friends of these

The 'Skinny' on the Kai Greene Olympia Special Invite

by Joe Pietaro on 06-28-2017 at 05:48 PM
Either on face value or by reading into it, the Olympia special invite extended from Jim Manion to Kai Greene is an intriguing aspect, to say the least. The IFBB president has everything to gain and nothing to lose by doing so and in comparison, Greene has much to lose and only one thing - albeit a monstrous one, at that - to gain.


This is an ingenious public relations move by Manion. Greene is by far the people's
