New Musclemania® Pro Kwame Duah is already lean and ready for MM World in Las Vegas. At 5'9" and weighing an enormous 220 lbs., the 21 year old university student is the youngest MM Pro!

He did not win, but lifetime natural bodybuilder Luke Belcher made a big impact at last week's Musclemania® Australia. The 5'10", 215 lbs., 27 year old nutrition store manager has been competing for nearly 10 years and always in natural shows. "I train because I'm passionate about it," Luke says. "There isn't a day go by that I miss, I just love it!" Luke could have been a contender for the overall title if he'd been leaner. Surely he won't make that mistake again.
Adika Njemanze won the Musclemania® Australia last week in Gold Coast.

"Now I am back in the gym and going to hit the weights and eat like a pig so I can compete with the Open guys next year." Adika will still be just 19 years old, but could still take on the the big boys.

Teenager Adika Njemanze is preparing for Musclemania® Australia next week. The 5'10", 190 lbs., 18 year old college student started lifting under the guise he was at the studying at the library. "I started training a couple of years ago against my mother's wishes," Adika explains. "Then, one day I guess I couldn't hide my size any more and she asked me if I was going to the gym. Well, as long as I keep my grades up, she now "allows" me to train every day." In just one season, Adika has already won all of the natural shows in Oz and says he's ready for MM.
