Daniel Roman says he'll be competing at Musclemania® Colombia in February. The popular 5'6", 183 lbs., 21 year old college student stays in contest shape all year, so he says competing will be nothing more than dropping a little water. "I always eat clean," Daniel claims. "When I eat any junk, I feel like crap. I just can't eat outside my diet even if I want to! I train super heavy and eat just enough carbs to get the energy I need, but nothing more."
Teenage college student Nico Scipione has never competed, but the 5'11", 170 lbs. bodybuilder says he's been inspired by two Musclemania® Championships - Julian Navarro ('13 MM Universe) and Nick Morrell ('13 MM Superbody Physique). The Philadelphia native gets to train with both bodybuilders and is learning faster without making the same mistakes that other kids his age have to learn by trial and error. Nico says, "I am training smarter with more mind and muscle connection. I like super high volumes with crazy intensity! It really jacks the muscle for me."

'13 Musclemania® Physique Superbody Champion Nick Morrell has completely changed his body since taking the '12 Model Superbody title. Adding 10 lbs. of muscle created a whole new physique on stage.

"I am learning more about my body, what it takes to grow and still keeping it all lean," Nick says. At 5'7", 185 lbs. and classic shape, he's going to be one sick looking bodybuilder next year. - Photo Credt: Jimmy Murtaugh

It may have been his third try, but Las Vegas teenager Brandon Flihan made it all worthwhile. The 6', 210 lbs., college student has been persistent in his 3 year journey and truly looked incredible. Brandon says, "I'm excited after the Musclemania® win, but I am not slacking and am already back to building. I've got to make this dream become a reality, and I will NOT stop until it happens. This off-season I plan on keeping my diet clean and maintaining a low percentage body fat."
