Musclemania® Asia Physique Tall Champion Terrence Teo says he's added 10 lbs. of muscle since the show. The 6', 215 lbs., Malaysian commercial and sports model and trainer is training for MM Universe in June which will be his first show in the US. "I've been training for over 10 years and my dream has always been to compete in America," Terrence says. "I want to have a physique which will make the trip worthwhile and bring home national honor."
Musclemania® New Mexico LW Winner Rogelio Medina says he's been growing since last year's show. The 5'6", 165 lbs., construction worker says he wants to bring a new physique to the stage this season. "I an growing and keeping it tight," he explains. "I don't skip a meal and bring everything to work with me so I can eat all day. My training is super intense I try to get it in before work so I got the energy I need for a good workout." Rogelio says he's out to win MM New Mexico in May and then on to either MM Universe or MM America.
At just 20 years of age, Deelan won Musclemania® Paris with an incredible 5'9", 185 lbs., lean and classic physique. The personal trainer and college student beat out all of the veteran competitors. Deelan says he maintained a comfortable 10-12% bodyfat all season which he credits to helping to develop lean muscle. "Next year, I want to keep it around 8% and get bigger and leaner at the same time," Deeland explains. Although he earned MM Pro status, he says he will compete at MM Universe next June in the Open Class. "I know I won, but I am not ready for those guys like Ulisses. I need another year or two to challenge them."
Legendary Musclemania® Pro Ulisses swept the MM Universe Championships not by sheer size, shape and condition but a combination matched by an unparalleled stage presence. The 19 year natural bodybuilder veteran says he never started lifting to be a career but just like training. "I caught the bug after my first show and realized that I could really take this to another level," Ulisses explains. "Since then, I have never looked back. Bodybuilding is my life and even involves my wife and kids. It has become a family passion and is our livelihood. Its what motivates me every morning to get up and push myself to greater plateaus to take care of my family and surpass my goals."
