2015 IFBB Pro Women’s Bodybuilding Contest Schedule


women's bodybuilding
The 2015 IFBB Pro Women’s Bodybuilding contest schedule has been released and there’s a couple of changes. In 2014, Women’s Pro Bodybuilding was dropped from the Arnold Sports Festival which many felt was a sign of things to come. Meaning women’s bodybuilding was on its last lifeline as part of the IFBB Pro League. The division isn’t dead… yet. There are six pro shows on the 2015 schedule however the Ms. Olympia is missing. Will there be an Olympia for the Women’s Bodybuilders? As of now, no but don’t rule it out. I’m told by reliable sources that the Ms. Olympia could be put back on the schedule but when and where has not yet been determined.

If it weren’t for Wings of Strength sponsoring the majority of these shows there would be no women’s bodybuilding. They’ve added another show to the lineup for the women at the Houston Pro, which is the only new event for the Women’s Bodybuilding division.

There’s an attempt online to save women’s bodybuilding but it’s received very little response. You can read the “petition” www.change.org.

The Orlando, Vancouver, Houston and Nordic Pro have all added the IFBB Pro Fitness division to their schedules. The only unfortunate timing, as it currently stands, is the Nordic and Phoenix Europa are on the same days.

2014 IFBB Russia Pro Bikini Results


2014 Russia Pro Bikini

The IFBB Russia Pro Bikini contest, held in Moscow on November 29th, was the final pro show of the 2014 season. The pros will have a few weeks off before ramping back up for 2015. The lineup for the Russia Pro Bikini wasn’t the biggest but it was competitive. Reigning Bikini International and Bikini Olympia champion, Ashley Kaltwasser edged out Anna Starodubtseva by one point for the win. The victory put Ashley in at the top of the Bikini record books with 11 career wins. Pretty impressive given she was only been a pro for two years and was 10th at the 2013 Arnold. She was the first bikini pro to win back-to-back titles at the Olympia and will look for her second Arnold win in March.

The second place finish for Anna was her highest as a pro and will look to qualify for the Olympia next year’s shows. Coming in third was Russia’s Sofia Tandilian. Rounding out the top five was Norway’s Christina Fjaere in fourth and Stephanie Mahoe in fifth.

2014 IFBB Ferrigno Legacy Pro Results & Review


ferrigno pro show

The final show of the year is in the books. The IFBB Ferrigno Legacy Pro took place in Santa Barbara, California and featured Men and Women’s Physique, Men’s Bodybuilding and Women’s Bikini. The winners punched their ticket to the 2015 Olympia.

This was the first time the show has been promoted and it will be interesting to see if it returns next year. Fans were treated to a free, live webcast on Bodybuilding.com which is great. A free webcast for a pro show usually only happens at the Arnold and Olympia so it was a treat for fans, friends and family members to watch.

That said there were some odd choices with the show, like why it was on the day after Thanksgiving which required traveling ON the holiday. Santa Barbara isn’t exactly the easiest spot to fly into and dealing with holiday traffic is never fun. While I applaud the show promoters for wanting to “go big” it’s a mistake far too many make. You don’t have to go big to have a successful show. We’ve seen it happen a number of times and they don’t last beyond a year or two. The night show didn’t start until 8pm which seems like a huge blunder given you had all day for the event. That is until the Pro Bikini competitors took the stage and the music person decided to play the most disrespectful and vulgar lyrics I’ve ever heard. Pittbull’s “GO GIRL” and JAY-Z’s “Is that Yo Bitch?” were disrespectful music choices and the competitors deserve an apology for the offensive lyrics. A competitor is disqualified if their posing music has profanity in it, the show’s promoters and music people should be held to the same standards. There are millions of songs to choose from and there’s no need to play that during the Bikini portion, or any portion, of a show. The show ended just before midnight on the West Coast and as you can imagine everyone was exhausted.

Congratulations to all the competitors who dieted through Thanksgiving and competed in this show. The next big pro show will be the Arnold Classic next March in Columbus, Ohio.

It will require competitors, fans and media to travel on Thanksgiving Day in order to arrive in time for the show. Santa Barbara isn’t exactly easy to get to whether driving or flying. One look at the lineups and you can see the timing of this show didn’t exactly bring out the A-list competitors but none-the-less the show must go on. There will be a free webcast of the event on bodybuilding.com which usually only happens with the Arnold and Olympia, so fans can tune in to see the show from the comfort of their own home. The NPC portion of the show will take place on Saturday. No word on whether Lou will be charging for photos and autographs for those in attendance.

2014 IFBB Felicia Romero Pro Results


The 2014 IFBB Felicia Romero Figure Pro was the final stop for the women in the Figure division. The next IFBB Pro Figure show will be the Figure International in Columbus, Ohio next March. The show drew a number of competitors but no “big names” which makes it interesting for those who enter as there’s no odds-on favorite heading into the show. Who could have predicted that Brasil’s Renata Guaraciaba would go from 16th place at the Kentucky Pro to winning in Arizona just one week later? Not this cat. She not only won but did so with in unamious fashion on the judges’ scorecards. Renata is now qualified to compete in the 2015 Figure Olympia. Coming in second was Brittany Campbell from Killeen, Texas and rounding out the top three was Megan Wyble from Lafayette, Louisiana. Jennifer Brown who finished in second at the Kentucky Pro slipped to seventh at this contest.

The Men’s Physique Pro was won by Rodney Razor.

Record-Breaking Rocky – 2014 NPC Rocky Mountain Championships


2014 NPC ROCKYThe 2014 NPC Colorado season will come to a close this weekend in Golden, Colorado. Show promoter, Jeff Taylor shared that this will be the largest NPC show in Colorado history. The final count won’t be in until late Friday night but over 400 competitors will compete in bodybuilding, fitness, figure, bikini and physique.

I expect the biggest turn out to be in the Bikini and Men’s Physique divisions. The two divisions are the newest and have experienced the most growth since their inception. This year’s event will have veteran maestro of the microphone, Bob Cicherillo calling the action. Let’s hope the Bobster brings some warmer temps to The Mile High City, as the thermometer currently reads a whopping 10 degrees.

The 2014 IFBB Pro season is winding down with just a couple of shows left in each division before the holidays and the new year. The 2014 IFBB Kentucky Muscle Pro is one of those shows and it featured the women of the Figure division and the Men’s Physique pros. Kamla Macko edged out fellow Floridian Jennifer Brown by one point for the win. The victory was the first in Macko’s 2 year pro career. She’d been the bridesmaid on five different occasions but not tonight in Louisville, Kentucky. Brown’s second place finish was the highest of her pro career. Rounding out the top three was Carly Starling Horrell for Wilmington, North Carolina. Just one show remains on the IFBB Pro Figure Schedule, the Felicia Romero Classic next weekend in Arizona.

2014 IFBB Irongames Pro Bikini Competitors


2014 irongames bikini

Culver City, California will play host to another pro bikini competition this weekend. The winner will qualify for the 2015 Olympia and the second through fifth place finishers will earn points towards the Olympia Point Series. There isn’t a clear cut favorite in this line up and it’s anyone’s show to win. Nicole Ankney could be considered the favorite after her win at the Sacramento Pro and will look to make it two in a row. Christie Marquez is one to watch as she’s coming off a top five finish last weekend in Sacramento. It will be interesting to see how Tatiana Koshman fairs in this line up. She was fifth in her Bikini debut at the Phoenix Pro but carries more muscle than the other women in this lineup.

2014 IFBB Sacramento Pro Results


2014 Sacramento Pro

Nicole Ankney took home her first pro victory tonight in Sacramento, California. She beat out Jessica Arevalo and Christie Marquez, who many felt were the favorites heading into the show. Jessica finished in second and Christie third. Coming in fourth was Breena Martinez and rounding out the top five was Leah Brandt.

Nicole won not only the open bikini but also the master’s pro competition. Pretty cool accomplishment for her considering her first show was on the same stage, just one year ago as an amateur. She turned pro at the 2014 Master’s Nationals and showed great improvement from her 16th place finish at the 2014 Tampa Pro. She’s now qualified to compete at the 2015 Olympia.

SHOW PREVIEW: 2014 NPC Music City Muscle Classic


NPC Music City Nashville

The 2014 NPC Music City Muscle competition will take place on November 1, 2014 in Nashville, Tennessee. I’ve covered hundreds of events over the last 10 years and without a doubt this is one of the best shows in the USA. Promoters Brandy Leaver and Brandon Curry do a tremendous job from start to finish and provide the competitors with an unforgettable experience. They’re both IFBB Pros and they’ve “been there done that” as competitors and I think that plays into their show. Brandy’s passion showed last year when she was running the event at 9 months pregnant, yes she was due at any time. Brandon gave local fans a rare glimpse at his stage ready physique by guest posing. He won the inaugural Arnold Classic Brasil and had just competed at the Olympia.

The venue is one of the best you’ll find for any event, amateur or pro. Last year the event sold out in the Polk Theatre and this year they’ve moved to the Andrew JacksonHall in the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. The place is awesome and has three levels of seating. A backstage that is the size of a football field and a pump up room that is the size of a gymnasium. Competitors will be spoiled after competing on this stage because there are few shows that have anything like it.

I caught up with Brandy for a bit more info on the event in a quick Q&A:

HARDBODY (HB): How many years have you promoted this show?
BRANDY LEAVER (BL):This is our 4th year!

HB: Any women who have competed in the show and turned pro?
BL: Yes, Hanna Hallman went pro just a couple of weeks after competing in our show last year. Ecko Johnson was just 1 spot away from earning her pro status 2 years ago after winning our show.

HB: Numbers expected this year vs the first year?
BL: Our first year we had 96 total, and this year we are hoping to hit the 400 mark! We are already past 300 in pre registration! (not to mention we are still a non National Qualifier! That is, until next year! Woohoo!)

HB: Venue change?
BL: Same building, but this year we are going into a bigger theatre in the Tennessee Performing Arts Center. Our old theatre held around 1500 people and we sold the last ticket at finals just 7 minutes after opening the doors last year and had to turn a lot of people away. So this year we were ready for the big one and are heading into the Andrew Jackson Hall which seats 2500 spectators. It’s just beautiful.


HB: What separates your show from others?
BL: Brandon and I wanted to put on a show that focused on the competitors, not ourselves. To be honest a lot of people know the show but they don’t realize that we run it. And we are cool with that! We create a positive environment for competitors backstage and even have a good old homemade Red Velvet Cake waiting for them the second they get off stage at the Finals! I think people like to do our show because we care about the competitors and make them feel comfortable no matter their age, or if it’s their first time competing or if they are a very experienced competitor. We have people competing from ages 16-76! Last year we even had a BLIND woman compete and she placed in the top 5! It’s inspiring and it’s all positive! We want people to celebrate and feel rewarded for the journey that they have been on. Not everyone will become an IFBB Pro but I want to give everyone a place to be able to compete comfortably and be satisfied with themselves no matter what the outcome. It’s a show for everyone to have a good time!

We also like to make it entertaining for spectators. We run it as a production during the Finals so it’s not just an award show! We have such an amazing venue, why not take it all the way! LOL! A lot of people come to the show that have never been to a Bodybuilding event before so we try to entertain them too!

WHERE:
Tennessee Performing Arts Center / Andrew Jackson Hall

2015 Olympia Qualification Point Series


2014 Olympia Point Series

The IFBB Professional League announced the 2015 Olympia Qualification Series and the point breakdown. Not much has changed from 2014 with the exception of a few shows being added and a couple of shows dropped. The Qualification Series has morphed a bit since it started in 2011 but the current formula seems to be working. The simplest way to explain it is, win and you’re in the Olympia. If you don’t win, then you accumulate points. The top five people at the end of the competition season (Olympia to Olympia) are qualified to compete. The top five competitors in the Olympia are automatically qualified for the following year’s Olympia.

2015 Olympia Qualification Series
Pittsburgh, PA – October 28, 2014 – The IFBB Professional League, in conjunction with Joe Weider’s Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend, announces the 2014 Olympia Qualification Series, a point-based system that determines qualifiers for all Olympia divisions.

The Olympia Qualification Series awards points to competitors placing 2nd to 5th at IFBB Pro League competitions. At the end of the Olympia Qualification season, the five competitors with the highest point totals in the Olympia Qualification Series qualify to compete at the Olympia.

Since the winner of each competition automatically qualifies, no points are awarded for first place. Additionally, competitors placing in the TOP FIVE AT THE OLYMPIA automatically qualify for the following year.

Points and qualifications int he 2015 Olympia Qualification Series are awarded as follows:

TIER 1: Arnold Classic USA
2nd – 8 points
3rd – 7 points
4th – 6 points
5th – 5 points

TIER 2: Arnold Classic (Spain), New York Pro, Prague Pro
2nd – 6 points
3rd – 5 points
4th – 4 points
5th – 3 points

TIER 3: Arnold Classic Brazil & Australia, Pittsburgh Pro, China Pro
2nd – 5 points
3rd – 4 points
4th – 3 points
5th – 2 points

TEIR 4: All Other Competitions
2nd – 4 points
3rd – 3 points
4th – 2 points
5th – 1 points

The points are accumulated throughout the year with the first contest points beginning with the first show after the Olympia. There have been competitors who tie in points and so far those who tie end up going to the Olympia without a tie breaker being determined.

2014 IFBB Sacramento Pro Competitor Lists


2014 Sacramento Pro
The 2014 IFBB Sacramento Pro will feature the women of the pro bikini division and the men’s physique division. This show has been a mainstay in Northern California for years and a number of the NPC competitors from this show have gone on to not only turn pro but do well as a pro. The event has featured Figure, Bodybuilding but lately focused on Bikini and Men’s Physique. Only five women in the line-up are from outside of The Golden State. The winner will qualify for the 2015 Olympia and currently no one already qualified for the Olympia has entered.

Last year was the first Pro Master’s Bikini competition, which was won by Noy Alexander. Surprisingly, Amanda Latona will not be back to defend her title. She’s won this show the last three years. There’s no clear winner in the line up so its anyone’s show to win.
