Donte Franklin stepped on to the contest stage last season for the first time and won the Musclemania Mid America HW Championships. But even with victory trophy on his mantel, the 6', 210 lbs., 22 year old car salesman knew he had to work to do. "I never thought about competing, but everyone at the gym kept tell me to try it," Donte explains. "I knew my physique was different, but after the show I realized just how incomplete it was. So, for the past 8 months, I have been working on the hams, calves and lats." Despite his massive size, Donte swore he would not compete until his symmetry was show ready. And, has that decision been made yet? "I'll make my mind up soon," he says.
