So, many of you know and many of you may not. The NPC is creating a new division for 2016. It is called “Classic Physique” to the best of my knowledge it is going to be aimed at classic bodybuilding. This is exciting.
My whole life I have been training to mimic something Arnold Schwarzenegger would be proud of. Never the less I have been competing in bodybuilding since 2001, age 19. I love bodybuilding. One would have to in order to endure the years and years of relentless pain from training.
At this point I have become a force in the NPC and known throughout the circuit as the “Tall Bodybuilder.” I am cool with that but its not enough. I want to finish my work with a win on the Olympia stage. Many will say impossible, but I really don’t give a shit what the weak minded think. Anything is possible with the right mind-set.
Which brings me to this. When I heard about this classic physique division coming out next year I really started to think. “This is what Arnold was talking about the 2015 Arnold classic. He must be talking about me.” So now I am even more excited about my bodybuilding at age 34. I have been doing this long enough to know a thing or two about changing the body.
The classes will go by height and weight. I am not sure what all the cut offs are but I do know about the one I fit into. The only problem is, they are saying if you are over 6’3″ you cannot weigh more than 240lbs! This is not cool. That means I would have to cut 35lbs of muscle to make weight. I’m not gonna do that.
So I am trying to get them to allow me to compete at a heavier weight or make another class for us guys that are super tall. There is just no way a guy that is 6’7″ vs a guy at 6’3″ can be competitive if they both weigh 240. So I want to hear what your thoughts are on the situation. Do you think they should make a Super Tall class? Or should they make the weight class higher for guys over 6’3″? You tell me what you think.
