Kansas City phenom Donte Franklin is prepping for the Musclemania® California and America shows next month. The 6', 214 lbs., 23 year old heavyweight has been training since he was 11 years old! Donte won the '13 MM Mid America HW Class last year. "I have focused on my legs and overall condition this year," he explains. "I saw what it would take to be MM Pro and I'm been on it."
'13 Musclemania® Mid America HW Champion Donte Franklin is tightening up for his guest appearance at the same show in Kansas City this season. The 6', 210 lbs., 23 year old car salesman is packed with muscle and will compete at MM Superbody in Atlantic City on August 30. "I've been working on symmetry - calves and abs especially," Donte says. "This year has really been a learning experience for me, especially on diet and conditioning."
'13 Musclemania® Mid America HW Champion Donte Franklin is one bad dude. The 6', 215 lbs., 22 year old Kansas City native was a favorite to win the '13 MM America Junior America but was beat out by a better conditioned and more symmetrical Kwame Jack-Duah. But, according to Donte, that's history. "Weaknesses are first on my list!," he says. "I'm not losing again to someone who's average. I will have a complete physique. I wanna have everything - nothing missing. So you bet I'm working weaknessess!" Donte hasn't decided which shows, yet, but no doubt he will be something new different the next time he competes.
