IFBB Pro League Advisory Notice on Muscle Size


IFBB Pro League Advisory Notice on Muscle Size. Jim Manion, President of the IFBB Pro League, issues the following letter to all IFBB Pro Athletes and Judges.

From: IFBB Pro League
To: IFBB Pro Athletes and Judges
Date: November 13, 2015
Subject: MUSCLE SIZE

The popularity of the IFBB Pro League continues to grow as a result of many factors the introduction of more achievable, less muscular physiques in the Figure and Bikini and the new divisions of Women’s and Men’s Physique.

All of the athletes who have competed in these divisions have represented the IFBB Pro League well. That being said, there has been a noticeable increase in muscle size across all of these divisions.

We would like to remind all athletes and judges that muscle size is only one of the many factors in judging competitors in these divisions.

In order to preserve the criteria in which all of these divisions were based on, we would like to see less focus on muscle size and more focus on symmetry, balance, proportion, definition and overall condition which are all equally important factors contributing to an aesthetically pleasing and fit physique.

We look forward to seeing all of you during the 2016 IFBB Pro League contest season.

Jim Manion
President
IFBB Pro League

About 11 years ago the IFBB issued a statement to all female athletes that read…

Date:December 6, 2004
From: Office of the Vice Chairman
IFBB Professional Division
To: All IFBB Professional Female Athletes
Re: FEMALE MUSCULARITY

For aesthetics and health reasons, the IFBB Professional Division requests that female athletes in Bodybuilding, Fitness and Figure decrease the amount of muscularity by a factor of 20%.

This request for a 20% decrease in the amount of muscularity applies to those female athletes whose physiques require the decrease regardless of whether they compete in Bodybuilding, Fitness or Figure.

All professional judges have been advised of the proper criteria for assessing female physiques.

Sincerely,

Jim Manion
Vice Chairman

Dana Linn Bailey Sits Out The Olympia – Launches New Supplement Brand


Dana Linn Bailey
Dana Linn Bailey (DLB as she’s known to her fans) is one of the most popular individuals in the IFBB Pro League. She was the first-ever Women’s Physique Pro and then went on to be crowned the inaugural Women’s Physique Olympia champion. DLB and her husband have created their own empire over in a relatively short time frame. While many “go pro” and seek to have a supplement sponsorship DLB has carved out her own path. Dana did go the traditional route for a short time working with MHP but quickly realized it would be more beneficial to build her own brand. What Dana and Rob have created is fascinating and something that arguably couldn’t be duplicated. They have their own camps, clothing line, Rob’s music, popular Youtube Videos, Road Tour, supplement line and a slew of other things in the works. Dana’s one of the few competitors who has managed to create an income on her own and the stage has little to do with it any more. Sure winning the Olympia didn’t hurt but it’s not the end all – be all for her.

Recently, Dana announced that she would be passing on competing in the Olympia due to a variety of reasons. It’s a smart move on her part and one that will certainly only help enhance the numerous projects she has going.

Dana Linn Bailey Sits Out The Olympia – Launches New Supplement Brand

So thank you all for your understanding and support, and don’t worry … DLB WILL BE BACK!!! I can’t think too far ahead to say what my next contest will be … BUT I will be back onstage, and it will only be that much more exciting!!!!!

– Dana Linn Bailey Sits Out The Olympia – Launches New Supplement Brand

It won’t “take away” any ticket sales to the Women’s Physique competition as it’s held in the Expo Hall of the convention center. Anyone who buys an expo ticket can watch the event. Fans can still see her at the Olympia as she’s recently announced they she will be launching “RUN EVERYTHING LABS“. Earlier this year she released a single supplement called “ONWARD” and now it appears the greater picture is Run Everything Labs with Onward and other products as part of it.


Are you even ready?….. Come see us at both 1249 @runeverythinglabs

From their clothing line, supplement line to their own line of gyms. You don’t have to be a fan of her physique to appreciate the hustle and all that the Bailey’s have created.

2015 Olympia Point Series Info & Leaders’ Update


2015 IFBB Olympia Point Series
The Olympia Point Series (Officially called the Olympia Qualification Series) is a point-based system that determines qualifiers for all Olympia divisions. The Series awards points to competitors placing 2nd to 5th at IFBB Pro League competitions. At the end of the Qualification season, the five (5) competitors with the highest point totals will qualify to compete at the Olympia. The winner of each competition automatically qualifies and no points are awarded for first place. The top five (5) at the Olympia automatically qualify for the following year. Previous Olympia Winners are qualified to compete as we’ll likely see in a few divisions once the line-ups are announced for the 2015 Olympia.

There are four tiers to IFBB Pro League shows where points are awarded.

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

Tier 2 – Arnold Classic Spain, New York Pro & Prague Pro
2nd place – 6 points
3rd place – 5 points
4th place – 4 points
5th place – 3 points

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

Tier 4 – All Other IFBB Pro League Competitions
2nd place – 4 points
3rd place – 3 points
4th place – 2 points
5th place – 1 points

WHO MADE IT IN?
There are only a handful of shows left for IFBB Pro League competitors to qualify for the Olympia. The Olympia Qualification Series has wrapped up for the Men’s 212 and Fitness divisions with others determined in the next two weeks.

212 Men’s Bodybuilding
Tricky Jackson locked in the top spot in the Point Series with 12 points. Aaron Clark’s second place finish at the Texas Pro put him in the second place spot. Ahmad Ahmad and Oliver Adzievski tied with nine points for the third and fourth spot and the final qualifying spot went to Khalid Alomsinawi from Kuwait. Sami Al Haddad will not return to the Olympia stage this year. He will finish in 6th place with 6 points. Thomas Anderson, Derik Farnsworth and John Meadows all narrowly missed out on qualifying as well with five points.

212 Men’s Bodybuilding Olympia Point Series Top 5:
Tricky Jackson – 12
Aaron Clark – 10
Ahmad Ahmad – 9
Oliver Adzievski – 9
Khalid Almohsinawi – 7

Fitness
The Texas Pro helped finalize who would make the cut for the 2015 Fitness Olympia. Marta Aguiar’s third place finish at the Texas Pro put her at the top of the Point Series leader board. Chika Aluka’s second place finish in San Antonio put her in the runner-up point total. Kristine Duba, Danielle Ruban and Allison Either round out the top five point leaders.

Fitness Olympia Point Series Top 5:
Marta Aguiar – 12
Chika Aluka – 11
Kristine Duba – 9
Danielle Ruban – 4
Allison Ethier – 4

FIGURE:
There are two qualifying shows remaining on the IFBB Figure schedule. The Tahoe Pro (August 22) and Europa Atlantic City Pro (August 28-29) will finalize the line-ups. It appears Julie Mayer and Wendy Fortino will get in with 12 and 11 points but with two shows remaining it’s not a lock. I don’t see them falling out of the top 5 spots though and would consider them in. Andrea Cantone looks to be safe with 10 points but with Karen Noorlun and Jennifer Brown with 7 points she could slip a bit. I look for Andrea to be in the Olympia line-up Currently Brittany Campbell, Tamara Sedlack, Chaya Boone and Shalako Berry are in a tie with six points. After the Tahoe Pro the field and the possibilities will be a bit clearer.

UPDATE:Wendy Fortino, Julie Mayer and Andrea Cantone are a lock for the Figure Olympia. There’s a four-way tie for the remaining spots with 7 points. Mathematically there are a number of women who could beat the seven points with a strong finish in Atlantic City.

Figure Olympia Point Series Top Spots: As of August 22, 2015
LOCKED IN:
Wendy Fortino – 13
Julie Mayer – 12
Andrea Cantone – 10

CURRENTLY IN BUT NOT 100%:
Karen Noorlun – 7
Jennifer Brown – 7
Shalako Bradberry – 7
Megan Wyble – 7

COULD SNEAK IN:
Brittany Campbell – 6
Tamara Sedlack – 6
Chaya Boone – 6

COULD GET IN WITH 2nd or 3rd IN ATLANTIC CITY:
Vivien Olah – 4
Maria Garcia – 4
Linda Andrew – 4
Tina Nguyen – 4
Jessica Morgan Canty – 4
Janaina Ferreira – 4
Azaria Glaim – 4
Joan Smith – 4
Andressa Ribeiro – 4

LONG SHOT TO GET IN – ONLY SECOND IN AC GET THIS LIST IN:
Josie Zamora – 3
Carly Starling Horrell – 3
Chiomba Uwasomba – 3
Louise Rogers – 3
Bruna Miyagui -3
Bojana Vasiljevic – 3
Swann Delarosa – 3
Idalia Molina – 3
Rachelle Carter – 3
Maggy Cambronero – 3
Amanda Doherty – 3

BIKINI:
There’s one more Bikini competition remaining on the schedule (August 29th). That said, it’s safe to say Noy Alexander, Francesca Lauren and Angeles Burkeare in the Olympia. Noy currently leads with 15 points and Francesca has 13 for second place. There’s no way those two are not in. Angels Burke is gauranteed a top five spot with 12 points. Christina Fjaere looks to be safe with 11 points and will return to Vegas for her second Olympia.

Sofia Tunisian is currently holding down the fifth place spot with 9 points but that number doesn’t put her safely in the Olympia yet. Mathematically there are a number of women who could bump her out should they finish in second at the last qualifying show. Brittany Taylor and Kenea Yancey could both snag the fifth place spot with a third place or better finish. They are tied with 7 points but would need to beat Sofia’s 9 points to get in. Tatiana Koshman, Lindsey Waters, Cynthia Benoit, Vladimira Krasova, Romina Basualdo and Angelica Dejean are long shots but could potentially get in with a second place finish. Anything less than second and they’re not in. They’d also have to hope that Brittany Taylor and Kenea Yancy finish lower than third.

Bikini Olympia Point Series Top Spots: As of August 21, 2015
Noy Alexander – 15
Francesca Lauren – 13
Angeles Burke – 12
Christina Fjaere – 11
Sofiia Tandilian – 9
Shandy Ortiz – 8
Brittany Taylor – 7
Kenea Yancey – 7
Tatiana Koshman – 6
Lindsey Waters – 6
Cynthia Benoit – 6
Vladimira Krasova – 6
Romina Basualdo – 6
Angelica Teixeira – 6

WOMEN’S PHYSIQUE:
Leonie Rose is a lock with 13 points at the top of the Women’s Physique Point Series. Erica Blockman also looks to be a lock with 11 points. Jennifer Hernandez is safe with 10 points. Those three will get in the Women’s Physique Olympia showdown. After that it’s a tight race for the two remaining spots. Currently, Silvia Alves Fraga and Kristina Dybahl-Farnsworth are tied for fourth. They aren’t safe with their seven points as Mikaila Soto’s second place finish at the Texas Pro puts her within striking distance of a qualification. She currently sits in sixth but don’t be shocked if she heads to Atlantic City next week and gets into the top five. Loana Pula Muttoni and Rachel Baker each have a chance to sneak into the top five as they sit tied with five points. Mathematically, nine other women could get in if they place 2nd in Atlantic City.

Women’s Physique Olympia Point Series Top Spots: As of August 21, 2015
Leonie Rose – 13
Erica Blockman – 11
Jennifer Hernandez – 10
Silvia Alves Fraga – 7
Kristina Dybdahl-Farnsworth – 7
Mikaila Soto – 6
Loana Paula Muttoni – 5
Rachel Baker – 5
Katerina Kyptova – 4
Lise Thexton – 4
Pamela Slemmons – 4
Antoinette Downie – 4
Venus Nguyen – 4
Nathalie Foreau – 4
Eva Pogacnik – 4
Jodi Boam – 4
Reshanna Boswell – 4

MEN’S PHYSIQUE:
Jacke Alvarez and Joseph Lee are a lock for the Olympia Showdown. After that Jake Campus looks like he’ll get in with 12 points. There are two shows remaining on the schedule (both on August 29th) and that will determine the rest of the field. Right now Andre Ferguson and Michael Balan are in the top five but there are a number of competitors that could mathematically knock them out of the top five.

Men’s Physique Olympia Point Series Top Spots: As of August 21, 2015
Jake Alvarez – 16
Joseph Lee – 14
Jake Campus – 12
Andre Ferguson – 11
Michael Balan – 10
Alex Carneiro – 9
Patrick Fulgham – 9
A.J. Shukoori – 8
John Nguyen – 7
Arash Rahbar – 7
Logan Franklin – 7
Geobanny Paula – 6

MEN’S BODYBUILDING
There are two shows remaining and after the Texas Pro finals we’ll have a clearer picture of who could get in. It’s safe to say Victor Martinez and Johnny Jackson are in with 14 points. Branch Warren looks to be a lock with 13 points and is slated to compete at the Atlantic City show (the last remaining qualifier on August 29th). Steve Kuclo is in 4th but is competing in the Texas Pro and undoubtedly will move out of that spot after the show. Justin Compton and Brad Rowe are tied for fourth with 11 points. Compton has announced he won’t compete in the Olympia even if he does qualify. Michael Lockett could move up after Texas as could Robert Piotrkowicz, both are on the outside of the top five but in striking distance with 9 points.

UPDATED – Johnnie Jackson won the Texas Pro, Steve Kuclo finished in second and Robert Piotrkowicz’s third place finish shook things up a bit. If Lockett enters the Atlantic City show and finishes in the top five he will bump Compton and Rowe out of the final spot. If Branch wins next week he’d be out of the point series and Locket, Compton (not competing regardless) and Rowe would be in.

Men’s Bodybuilding Olympia Point Series Top Spots: As of August 22, 2015
Steve Kuclo – 15
Victor Martinez – 14
Branch Warren – 13
Robert Piotrkowicz – 12
Justin Compton – 11
Brad Rowe – 11
Michael Lockett – 11
Evan Centopani – 8
Renaldo Gairy – 8

Amazon.com Named Official Retail Sponsor of the 2015 Olympia


American Media, Inc. Announces Amazon.com as “Official Retail Sponsor” of 2015 Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend
NEW YORK, August 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ – American Media, Inc. (AMI) today announced that Amazon.com would be the official retail sponsor of the world famous Olympia Fitness & Performance weekend in 2015 – which is likely to be the highest attended weekend yet.

The 2015 Olympia Weekend is ‘Presented by’ title sponsor Ultimate Nutrition and will be ‘Brought to you’ by our new official retail sponsor Amazon.com. It consists of the Mr. Olympia bodybuilding competition and the Fitness & Performance Expo. Mr. Olympia offers fans a chance to see the world’s greatest bodybuilders in action. At the Expo, men and women with a passion for health and fitness can discover the latest nutritional supplements and try the newest workout gear. With a record setting 55,000 in attendance and over 1,000 exhibitor booths last year, the event continues to grow as even more fans and brands are expected in 2015. The Expo and competition will be held in Las Vegas at the Las Vegas Convention Center and the Orleans Arena on September 17-20.

The Amazon.com Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend sponsorship will include a considerable amount of features. For the Mr. Olympia competition, Amazon.com will be the exclusive sponsor of the live video stream, which generated 4 million views last year. And along with Ultimate Nutrition’s logo, the Amazon.com logo will be positioned alongside the official Olympia logo wherever it is displayed at the Orleans Arena and LVCC, including the main stage at the Expo where popular contests such as the Bikini Model Search, Men’s Model Search, Kick Boxing and the Strongman Challenge are held.

“With Amazon being the world’s premier online retailer, we couldn’t think of a better retail sponsor for the Mr. Olympia weekend. Amazon has shown a great appreciation for the sport of bodybuilding and the culture that has grown with it,” said AMI Chairman, CEO and President David Pecker. “This is a win-win for everyone, as Amazon will surely strengthen its presence amongst the fitness community while Olympia gets the ultimate retail sponsor.”
