Hardbody Preview: 2013 IFBB Southern California Pro Bikini

Ten women are set to go for the 2013 IFBB Southern California Pro Bikini competition. This won’t be the largest competition of the year but it will be competitive. The prejudging kicks off this morning in San Diego, California and the finals will crown the winner later tonight.

The Hardbody 411:
Amy Allen – Amy continues to improve her physique since achieving pro status. She has a chance to move up in the top five and is coming off a 16th place finish at the Muscle Contest.

Jessica Arevalo – If the judges find Jessica as appealing as her fans on instagram she’ll be your winner. Fortunately for the other women in this show it’s not based on photo popularity. She continues to improve her posing and presentation. She should be in the mix for a top spot if she brings the same confidence today.

Narmin Assria – Narmin has a pro win to her credit and on paper has the most the best chance at being the show favorite. She’s small but mighty and if she brings a conditioned physique she’ll be in the hunt for the top spot.

Theresa Byrne – Theresa continues to shed some of the muscle that has prevented her from placing in the top spots. If she brings a more streamlined look she’ll be a contender. She was a little off her game at the Muscle Contest, so look for her to redeem herself at this show.

Candice Conroy – Candice could be your dark horse in this show. The blonde California beauty will be making her pro debut and has a smile that will light up the darkest room. She’s got the look and as long as the rookier nerves don’t get the best of her she’ll be in the mix.

Christie Marquez – Christie is the veteran of the group and continues to come into her own on stage. She seems to be more relaxed and having more fun when she competes. She’s coming off a fourth place finish in St. Louis and will look to match and surpass that here.

Janelle Saitone McGuire – Janelle is a beautiful model and has great energy that you can’t help but be drawn to. If she comes in a bit fuller than in past shows she’ll be in the top five since turning pro.

Amanda Sexsmith – Amanda is the lone competitor not residing in California. She was 6th at the Toronto Super show, her pro debut. If she wears a brighter colored suit and tones down the big hair she’ll be in the mix. She has a great physique and with some minor tweaks she could be a threat for the top spots in any show she enters. Beautiful woman with lots of potential.

Angela Skeels – Angela has yet to find her groove in the pro ranks. She was the overall bikini champion at the 2012 NPC Nationals and her highest finish was 8th at the St. Louis Pro. She’ll need to be at her best to crack the top five here.

Jen Stevens – Jen will be making her IFBB Pro debut after achieving pro status at the NPC JR USAs last month. She has a nice look and as long as she’s not too conditioning and poses small she’ll be in the mix. “Posing small” meaning she has a bit more muscle than the other women in this show so can’t appear too muscular in her poses.
