2014 IFBB Border States Pro Competitor List


2014 Border States

The 2014 IFBB Border States Pro will be the first qualifying event in the Figure division for the 2015 Figure Olympia. The event will take place on Saturday, October 4, 2014 in San Diego, California. Currently, 18 women are signed up to compete and there’s no clear cut favorite. Allison Frahn and Julie Mayer are coming off the Figure Olympia and your likely favorites if you were forced to pick one. Krista Dunn is also coming off the Olympia and has been competing pretty much all year. It will be interesting to see how her physique looks after so many shows. Tamara Sedlack has slowly but steadily moving up in the ranks and with some rest could be one to watch for a top spot.

2014 IFBB EVLS Prague Pro Competitor Lists & Hardbody Preview


Prague Pro

This weekend the IFBB Pro Bikini competitors will be back on stage for the second qualifying event towards the 2015 Olympia. Over the weekend the first show of the new pro calendar year (the Korea Pro) took place with Ashley Kaltwasser winning.

This weekend the odds on favorite heading into the show looks to be India Paulino who finished third in Korea. She’ll have her work cut out for her as the European competitors are no joke. While some praise the “new version” of India’s posing, I’m not fan. She’s brought in a better look to her physique recently and the over-the-top posing detracts from it. If she let’s the bod do the talking she’ll be cashing a first place check. If she thinks she’s auditioning for SHOWGIRLS, she’ll be on the outside of the winner’s circle. Christina Strom Fjaere didn’t finish in a top spot at the Olympia however it was just her second pro show ever. She won her pro debut and has a look that will undoubtedly get noticed. Look for her to be in the mix at the Prague Pro. Noemi Olah is a likely contender for the top spot and you can never rule out Lacey DeLuca to be in the hunt for a top five finish. Jessica Arevalo has been competing all year and it will be a test to see how her body looks at yet another show. Aly Garcia has yet to hit her groove this year but with some rest she could come into this lineup and shake things up, if she doesn’t try and new hair styles or goofy poses. Michelle Brannan is looking to get back in the top spots and will need to nail the little details like her posing, tanning and makeup. Margret Gnarr has a great look and if she brings a similar presentation to this stage that she did at the Arnold, she should be a top callout contender.

The 2013 Prague Pro Bikini winner Vladmira Krasova is not currently on the list but if she does enter she’ll be one to watch for the top spots.

The competition takes place on October 4, 2014 in Prague, Czech Republic. The Bikini competitors will share the stage with the Men’s Open and 212 Bodybuilders.

2014 Arnold Classic Europe Results


Arnold Classic Europe

The 2014 Arnold Classic Europe is in the books and things went as expected in the women’s pro fitness division. Oksana Grishina was coming off her first Fitness Olympia win and brought all the moment with her to Madrid, Spain. She was able to perform the same routine that earned her the top spot at the Fitness International, in Columbus, Ohio to kick the year off. Oksana’s “pole routine” demonstrates not only her versatility as an athlete but also as a performer. She becomes the first woman to win the Fitness International, Olympia and Arnold Classic Europe Fitness all in the same year.

Defending Arnold Classic Europe Fitness champion, Tanji Johnson brought an improved physique to the stage but had to settle for third. Definitely no shame in that placing and Tanji continues to be one of the mainstays in the Fitness division. The third place finish matches her Olympia Fitness placing form last week. Myriam Capes suffered an accident after the 2014 Fitness Olympia that left her with an injured hand but it didn’t hold her back from a fifth place place finish. Leaping into the top five with an always beautiful routine was Canadian Fitness star, Danielle Ruban. Danielle always has a smile on her face and consistently in the hunt for a top spot in every show. The always high-flying and energetic Regiane Da Silva was coming off a second place finish at the Olympia and matched that placing in Madrid. Regiane always has to play catch up after the 2-piece round but her routines help her land a top spot due to the non-stop nature. She also makes strength moves look easy but try any one of them and you’ll likely land on your face.

10. Aurika Tyrgale 49 – 88 – 137

Kai Greene and Mamdouh “Big Ramy” were slated to compete in the show but didn’t take the stage. This left the door open for the rest of the field to move up as Kai had to be the favorite heading into the show and Big Ramy a threat for the top five. An improved Dennis Wolf took top honors by his size and improved conditioning. Shawn Rhoden was able to hold onto his conditioning from last week’s Olympia and landed him in second. Rounding out the top three is the always dangerous Dexter Jackson. Dexter proves that age is just a number as he continues to be a top contender into his 40s.

2014 Figure Olympia Poll, Preview and Predictions


Figure Olympia

The 2014 Figure Olympia is upon us and 20 women will compete for the coveted crown of Figure Olympia champion. Nicole Wilkins will look to make history with a record-setting 4th win. Nicole won her first Olympia title in 2009, finished second in 2010 and reclaimed the title once again in 2011. In 2012 she was relegated to second once again and bounced back last year to claim her third title. The only other woman to win three titles was Davana Medina, so Nicole is in elite company as it is. Candice Keene will look for her first Olympia and is in the best position to upset the champ. Erin Stern was Nicole’s biggest nemesis but she has opted out of competing in this year’s event. There are a number of other women who could give Nicole a run for her money but can beat the champ? We’ll find out soon… Check out the preview of the show on bodybuilding.com and cast your vote for who you want to see win the Figure Olympia title.

Nathalia Melo on Sitting Out the Bikini Olympia


Nathalia Melo
I was asked by a few people, “why did you leave Nathalia out of your Bikini Olympia predictions?” Well, Nathalia is a very good competitor but it will be tough for her to win her second Olympia title when she’s watching from the audience. I’ve read a variety of comments speculating why Nathalia isn’t competing this year so I decided to go straight to the champ herself and find out what’s up. Check out what Nathalia had to say about sitting out the Olympia, retirement chatter and more. As always, Nathalia is shows her humorous side and why she’s one of the most popular women in the industry whether she’s on stage or not.

Nathalia Melo on Sitting Out the Bikini Olympia

Where ya living these days?
In planes and airports. LOL… Just kidding I am living in Belfas-Northern Ireland.

How often do you travel?
At least twice a month, and since mid-August until a week before Christmas I will be on the road every weekend working for my sponsors, Nutrex Research and Better Bodies. Plus I’m doing my “Nathalia Melo Stage Ready Seminars” and “Melofit Camps”.

Some rumors floating around about you not competing in the Olympia this year. Let’s tackle those…

Are you pregnant?
No… no babies here. Well… I did get a dog, if he can count as a baby. =)

HA! Good one. Are you out of shape and not able to pull it together?
Yup! Been living on cake and ice cream for the past few months. Hahaha… just joking! I better stop it before people think it is true. But, on a serious note now when you are in this industry it is vital that you stay in shape, not necessarily contest shape but at least photo shoot ready. I have been doing shoots for my sponsors and have a few photoshoots lined up for the Olympia weekend. So, no… I didn’t get morbidly obese.

You’ve got jokes.

My decision to not do the Olympia this year started when I had a very bad injury on my back, which was around the time I had to make de decision whether or not I was going to compete at the Olympia. Plus, I have been super busy with my seminars and camps so I am trying to focus more them (I have done seminars and camps in nearly 20 different countries). And to top it all off, I am also planning my wedding. So, with so much going on I thought it would be best to sit out of this one.

You’re planning a wedding soon?
I am wedding planning at the moment. MADNESS!!

So you retired?
No. I am not ready to play Bingo on a daily basis, yet.

HAHA! Now that we got those out of the way…

Will you be at the Olympia and if so where can people see The leader of the Melo Mafia?
I wouldn’t miss the Olympia weekend for anything! I surely will be there! I will be at Nutrex Research and Better Bodies booth on both days, and at Bodybuilding.com booth on Friday.

You’ve been doing lots of seminars. Any of those planned after the Olympia?
Yes. Many of them planned for after the Olympia. In Russia, England, Italy and the U.S. to name a few places.

You’re also part of a book coming out with other champions. What can people expect to find in your profile?
I am pretty freaking excited to be put in a book with so many women who I admire and all the female legends of the Bodybuilding. In my profile I share my workouts, diet and a few tips on things I have learned over the years.

nathalia melo

Lastly, what bit of advice would you have for the rookies competing in the Olympia for the first time?
Enjoy the ride, the moment and be very very very proud of yourself for stepping on that stage. Regardless of your placing, always remember that not many can say that have competed at the Olympia. Oh… and take LOOOOOOADS of pictures backstage, they are such great memories!!

Thanks Nathalia! Follow Nathalia on instagram, Facebook and twitter.

Bethany stopped by to give an update heading into this year’s big show in Las Vegas plus she shares a sample workout. Check it out.

Hello Hardbody peeps! I hope everyone had relaxing and successful summer! I wanted to give everyone a quick update on my personal “Climb to the Olympia.” I switched it up from Road to the Olympia, because I began my contest by running Red Rocks and climbing Mount Quandary in Colorado with my good friend Camala Rodriguez-McClure. I believe “the climb” describes my training and preparation more accurately! I challenge myself everyday to get stronger physically and mentally. I’m always moving upward and onward.

I have said this before and I’ll share it again… I learn something new about myself every contest prep. I am learning what “stronger everyday” means to me. I ask myself “how do I put that into action?” For me, it is to focus on my inner voice and truly “listen to my heart.” I want to improve in all roles of my life: a daughter, sister, aunt, wife, friend, teacher, coach, and fitness competitor. I am learning and practicing the value of compassion. Compassion is my new favorite VERB and you should “exercise” it with others and with YOURSELF! It is not as easy as it sounds. Slowly but surely I am climbing to be a more mindful and compassionate person (especially with myself).

Inside the gym is so much easier to achieve “stronger everyday”. I can accomplish “hardbody.” So, for you I have included a back and bicep workout I recently tackled. Back training is a longer day because there are so many muscles of the back! I try to vary wide and close grip exercises. As a general rule I always do one warm-up set and then 3 working sets. Depending on the pump I may drop set the last set to really squeeze and feel the muscle(s) being worked.

BETHANY’S SAMPLE WORKOUT:
1. Seated close grip cable row super-set with wide grip pull ups (unassisted to failure)
2. Barbell T-Bar Row super-set with hammer strength (dual grip) one arm row machine (high/wide grip)
3. Reverse grip lat pull down with no weight low back hyperextensions
4. Close- grip lat pull down (use two separate hand

les) with cable bicep curl
5. DB bicep curl (twist at the top) – 3 drop sets

“Live your Dream. Show Compassion. Create your own Happiness. Follow your Heart.”

See you in 2 weeks!!!

Candice Lewis-Carter Olympia Training


hardbody olympia

We’re just over two weeks out from the Figure Olympia and 7x IFBB Figure Champ Candice Lewis-Carter (she wed in July) gives us a sneak peek. Some “fans” and critics wondered if Candice would be ready because of the wedding and traveling. One look at this video and you’ll see she’s clearly on track. She knows 3 of the top six from last year are sitting out the 2014 Figure Olympia and this is her opportunity to give Nicole Wilkins and Candice Keene a run for their money.

Follow along on social media using #50thOlympia and check back for more Olympia coverage.

2014 Figure Olympia – Find Out Who Qualified


2014 Figure Olympia
The 2014 Figure Olympia is quickly approaching and we now know who is qualified to compete in the upcoming event. The Tahoe Pro sent Julie Mayer to the Olympia via her win and finalized who would get in via the Olympia Point Series. It came down to the final show before we knew who made it in via points but now, we’re set.

Nicole Wilkins will be looking for her fourth Olympia title, something no other woman has done. Candice Keene has won two Arnold Figure International titles but has yet to add Olympia champ to her resume. We know Erin Stern is not competing this year. Heather Dees and Mallory Haldeman will also be opting out of the show despite qualifying. That leaves a huge opportunity for the women qualified to end up in the top five spots.

2014 IFBB Tahoe Pro Figure Results


Tahoe Pro Figure Results
The 2014 Tahoe Pro Figure competition was the final stop for the IFBB Pros looking to qualify for the Olympia. Thirteen women took the stage looking for the win but there could only be one. Win and you’re in the Figure Olympia. Finish in the top five and collect points towards an invite via the Olympia Point Series. Allison Frahn was the only competitor who had a lock on an Olympia spot but the remaining spots were up for grabs.

After prejudging it was apparent that Andrea Calhoun, Julie Mayer, Allison Frahn and Wendy Fortino were a lock for the top four but where would they finish? We never saw the fifth and sixth place finishers stand next to the top four and it was clear it would come down to these four women for the top spots. Fifth was significant as it helped determine the point total in the Olympia series.

Julie Mayer, Krista Dunn and Andrea Calhoun were all in a tie for 3-5 in the Point Series with Wendy Fortino in sixth. Julie Mayer was awarded first place and that took her out of the point series hunt. Coming in second was Wendy Fortino which earned her enough points to head to the Olympia. Third place went to Andrea Calhoun and locked in her spot for the Figure Olympia. Allison Frahn was already qualified and the fourth place finish earned her two more points but was it a risky move entering the show? It was definitely a roll of the dice. Win the show and you have momentum going into the Olympia but a fourth place finish definitely wasn’t what she had hoped for. She’ll have her work cut out for her to get in the top ten conversation come Olympia time. Rounding out the top five and earning a spot in the Olympia line up was Krista Dunn. She’s competed a number of times and has been up and down in her placings throughout the year. She can breathe a sigh of relief now that she’s qualified for the Olympia in Las Vegas.

2014 IFBB Tahoe Pro Figure Results (score is after the name)
1. Julie Mayer – 3
2. Wendy Fortino – 6
3. Andrea Calhoun – 10
4. Allison Frahn – 11
5. Krista Dunn – 16
6. Shalako Bradberry – 19
7. Bojana Vasiljevic – 22
8. Jami DeBernard – 23
9. Beckie Boddie – 25
10. Sarah Dominguez – 31
11. Michell Shepherd – 32

Next stop… the Figure Olympia. The IFBB Border States in October will be the next open event for the Figure pros.



2014 IFBB St. Louis Pro Bikini Results


st louis pro
The last opportunity to qualify for the Bikini Olympia went through St. Louis, Missouri on August 23rd. The final IFBB Pro Bikini in the competition calendar year (Olympia to Olympia) proved to be one of the more interesting ones simply based on the Point Series. Win and you’re in the Olympia Finish in the top 5 and collect points. The top five highest points at the end of the season are granted an invite to the Olympia.

Brittany Taylor and Justine Munro were compared side by side a number of times and the winner was in the Olympia and second place stay home. This was Justine’s best look to date but wasn’t quite sharp enough to hold off rookie Brittany Taylor. Brittany took top honors and in doing so punched her ticket to the Olympia. She was the 2014 Overall NPC Jr. Nationals Bikini Winner in June and this is her first pro win. Munro came up short in the point series and fans of the Canadian will have to wait another year as she will not be competing in this year’s Olympia. Coming in third was California’s Candice Conroy. The third place finish launched her into fourth place in the point series and she is officially in the big show. Fourth place went to Bianca Berry who come on strong in the final three shows after some time away from competition. She came up just short in the point series but will be one to watch in the shows after the Olympia. Definitely one who you could see on the Olympia stage in 2015. The fifth and final spot went to Noemi Olah. The placing earned her one point which ties her for the fifth and final point series spot with Nicola Weiterova.

Despite placing sixth in the show, Jessica Arevalo will head to the Olympia on points. A questionable move as to why she competed was she was already in the Olympia on points and the finish here does little for her momentum heading into the Olympia.

2014 IFBB St. Louis Pro Bikini Results (score behind the name)
1. Brittany Taylor – 3
2. Justine Munro – 6

Next up for the IFBB Bikini Pros is the 50th Olympia on September 18-21, 2014. After that is the Korean Pro and the Prague Pro. The next stateside Pro Bikini show will be the Ft. Lauderdale Cup on October 18th.



2014 IFBB St. Louis Pro Bikini – Last Chance to Qualify


stl bikini

The 2014 IFBB St. Louis Pro Bikini is the last opportunity for the women in the pro bikini division to qualify for the Olympia. The Olympia is a week earlier this year and the St. Louis Pro moved up in the schedule as a result. The winner will automatically get in the Bikini Olympia and those finishing in the second through fifth places will earn points in the Olympia Point Series. The women with the five highest point totals get in the Olympia.

The magic number is 10 to get into the Olympia via points. A woman will need at least ten points to have a chance at qualifying. This show will be very interesting to watch as three women are currently tied with 10 points for the fifth and final spot. Candice Conroy is the only one of them currently on the list. If she places anywhere in the top five she’ll break the tie and bump Michelle Lewin and Nomei Olah out of the mix. Mathematically she’s the only one on the list with a chance to qualify via points. Everyone else will need a win to get in. Brittany Taylor is the one who could shake things up in this line-up and don’t be shocked if Candice and Brittany are being compared for the own here.

*Update – Jessica Arevalo, Justine Munro and Noemi Olah have been added to the lists which changes the game.*

2014 IFBB TAHOE PRO Figure – Last Chance to Qualify


tahoe-pro figure

The Tahoe Pro is the last chance for the women of the IFBB Pro Figure division to qualify for the 2014 Olympia. Currently, ten women are slated to in Lake Tahoe, Nevada. The winner will automatically punch their ticket to the big show and those finishing in 2-5th will collect points towards the Olympia Point Series.

It’s a tight race in the point series. Allison Frahn is leading the point series with fifteen. If she were to win this show everyone moves up in the point series. If she doesn’t win, she’ll still be in as 15 points are enough to qualify her for the Olympia. Second place Sasha Brown is in with 12 points as well. That leaves Krista Dunn, Andrea Calhoun, Julie Mayer are all tied for the remaining three spots with 10 points. Wendy Fortino is on the outside looking in but if she places fourth or higher she’ll be in with enough points.

Beckie Boddie and Bojana Vasiljevic are mathematically out of the top five points. They’ll need to win to get in. Same holds true for Jami DeBernard, Sarah Dominguez and Kartina Tarbox.

2014 IFBB Dallas Pro Results


2014 Dallas Pro Results

Another IFBB Pro show is in the books and we’re one weekend closer to the 50th Olympia in Las Vegas, Nevada. Today in Dallas, Texas the bikini pros were on stage in hopes of qualifying for the big show next month. Lacey DeLuca and Tawna Eubanks had the pressure off them as both were qualified for the Olympia. The rest of the field was looking for the win or a high enough finish to earn points in the Olympia Point Series. Only the top five earn points towards the series. The five competitors with the highest points after the last qualifying show receive a spot in the Olympia lineup. Ever year it’s tight race and comes down the final show to see who gets in. This year is no different. There’s only one pro show left for the bikini competitors to qualify and this was the final opportunity for the Men’s Physique competitors.

Tawna Eubanks won her second pro show in a row and this one has to be even a little sweeter in her own backyard of Dallas, Texas. The field was a bit more competitive here than her last showing and she carries some momentum into the Olympia next month.
