Natural bodybuilder Alex Rendon has never been on stage, but the 5'8", 195 lbs., 20 year old Colombian plans to hit the competition scene this season. "I just went to see my first show last year and everyone kept telling me that should compete," Alex says. Incredibly, he trains in spartan facilities including a gym with a thatched roof made of palm tree leaves. "The place is great for me," Alex explains. "I don't need anything fancy. It's all about heavy duty, hard core training no matter where you lift." Alex says he hopes to be ready for Musclemania® Colombia in July, then MM Latino in Mexico City and, possibly, MM America in the fall.
