Generation Iron, Tampa Pro Bodybuilding ChampionshipsThings are going to get hot in Tampa.

Tomorrow kicks off the 2014 Tampa Pro bodybuilding championships. With Mr. Olympia just around the corner – there will be a lot riding on this competition for a lot of athletes. We’re very excited to have two guys from Generation Iron competing this weekend. We’ll be flexing extra hard for our brothers Victor Martinez and Hidetada Yamagishi as they take to the stage.

There will be some winners and  some losers. But every single athlete has worked their entire lives towards moments like these.

We extend all of our good luck to all the athletes.
