Michael Boyle plans to win the Master’s division at Natural Olympia. 

Michael Boyle is a two-time natural bodybuilding British champion – United Kingdom Drug Free Bodybuilding Association (UKDFBA) 2020 and 2021 – who has high hopes for the future. He finished third in the Master’s class at Natural Olympia 2021. In an Instagram (IG) post, Boyle stated:

“The @inbapnbaglobal_official Olympia pics are in. I know where I need to improve and the goal has been set. Can’t wait till I’m back at peak strength lifting heavy and building more tissue. It’s been an awesome season. One that I will never forget. Time to improve!!!”

With the work Michael Boyle plans to do, he believes it will be enough to secure a first-place victory in Men’s Bodybuilding Master’s at Natural Olympia. 

In an IG post published on Nov 17, 2021, Boyle said:

“36 weeks of diet come to an end and what an end to the season. It’s time to go off season and get fluffy. 🐽 Can’t wait to get them heavy dead’s back in. Operation top masters pro spot in a couple of years 💪 xxxxxx

Michael Boyle isn’t the only competitor that believes there is room to grow. The 2021 Natural Olympia Men’s Bodybuilding Grand Master’s winner, Philip Ricardo Jr., also believes there’s work to be done. 

Road to Natural Olympia

Although there are many natural bodybuilding events throughout the year, each competitor’s primary goal is to earn a spot at Natural Olympia – The Pinnacle of Natural Bodybuilding. It’s the biggest event of the year for natural bodybuilders, and it’s equivalent to Mr. Olympia if you’re familiar with the International Federation of BodyBuilding and Fitness (IFBB). 

Generation Iron was reporting the 2021 Natural Olympia, and we had a camera crew on the ground recording key moments. You can watch a full breakdown of the 2021 Natural Olympia below:

To compete professionally in the International Natural Bodybuilding Association/Professional Natural Bodybuilding Association INBA/PNBA – most major natural bodybuilding league – league, you’ll have to win the Overall in an Open’s or Master’s category. 

Now, you can start entering INBA/PNBA competitions to earn your stripes to qualify for Natural Olympia. To qualify for Natural Olympia, athletes with a pro card need to compete in at least one PNBA show. However, champions of the previous year, such as Paul Krueger – Mr. Natural Olympia – and Hall of Fame Inductees (not Hall of Shame Inductees), receive a “Golden Ticket” – automatic entry.
