          • bigoso you look solid bro! Great overall symmetry. Yeah man, competed in the Men's Physique class at those shows. People tell me I look more like an MMA fighter but I look at it as I am unique and it's all good. So far placed 4th, 9th and 9th. I never complain my friend, just being part of such amazing events with all the amazing athletes such as yourself makes me a winner as well as everybody else who steps on stage a winner also. Keep in touch and much respect!

            • My friend sent me these images today. They are some on stage images from the 2012 NPC Atlantic States Men's Physique Competition in New York and a few images from the photo shoot that followed. Just told my placing was 11th out of 14. I was never one to make excuses. I will try to do my best this coming week June 9th at the NPC Rhode Island show Men's Physique Division at Twin Rivers Casino. I will say a few prayers to the good Lord above to watch over me and hopefully do a little bit better. Even though I am not happy with my placing I still have 100% respect for all my fellow competitors, the judges and the entire NPC organization. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to compete in your amazing shows as I am honored to just be on the same stage with such incredible athletes. Thank you & God Bless

              • A buddy of mine just turned pro in mpd....as weird as it sounds you are probably placing as you are because of how hard vascular and muscular you are....if you soften up some you will place better in mpd

                • Thanks bigoso for taking the time to respond my friend, yeah, I have gotten that feedback from a few others as well. It is a compliment while at the same not one, lol! Here are my thoughts, after dieting all these weeks at 5'9" and dropping below 200lbs. I feel like a middle weight boxer anyway. I am not a big guy compared to some but I am 37 years old and have been training for over 2 decades so I should have some muscle to show for that. I think I am one of the older male physique competitors in the open class and it is great to still be hanging with these young guys. I have done fashion modeling and was very lean as well so maybe it's just muscle maturity over the years. I must say that the people at these NPC shows have really been great, they have all been so very nice to me. I have met and become friends with some of the other competitors. What other place can one be in where every person around you has been doing the same thing as you. I look around at all these amazing athletes who are just like me....dieting and training to compete. It is the love of the sport for sure. I placed 4th at the Jay Cutler Classic, 9th at the Mid-Atlantic States and 11th at the Bev Francis Atlantic States this past weekend. I just continue to be positive and do the best I can. I will be competing in the Men's Physique at the Rhode Island show this Saturday. Should be a great show. Some of the best vibes I have gotten from people over the years has been about my attitude. One person once said this about me, "if placings were based on positive attitude, John Quinlan would place first every time." That meant so much to me and that is the same attitude I have today. Friends of mine kid me about my age competing on the Open Men's Physique with guys in their early to mid 20's. They call me the "Donald Driver" of the group. Made me laugh as I had number 80 for the Atlantic States show which is Driver's number for the Green Bay Packers. But really, the things I will take with me from these shows are lessons in the game of life. I have 3 little children and I tell my 6 year old son who wants to win everything that the most important thing(s) is not winning but its never quitting and it's ok not to come in first place every time. I have a few more NPC Physique shows lined up to do this year and even though winning for me I think is out of the question I will keep a positive attitude and finish strong. I have 100% respect for my fellow competitors and the NPC judges as well as all the coordinators backstage. I am truly honored to have had the opportunity to compete in the NPC. It is not something John Quinlan takes for granted. Hey bigoso between you and me......I would give my right arm to place well at this upcoming Rhode Island State show June 9th. Ok man, I didn't mean to ramble there but I have so much respect for this business I can talk about it for quite some time.

                  God Bless

                      • I just wanted to say what an honor it was to win the 2012 NPC Rhode Island State Menís Physique competition this past night on June 9th. I took 1st place in the under 5í10Ē class. There was some great talent in my group and I have nothing but the utmost respect for these guys. I would like to personally thank the NPC organization and everybody who helped put this event together. Each and every time I have competed at an NPC event the people who have ran each one have all been so very nice to me that truly I canít say enough great things about them all. One of the head guys, Mike Feulner, very nice to me every time I have communicated with himÖ..a real professional and a person I have great respect for. I met and became friends with some amazing athletes who competed at this show. I would like to say for the record I had the privilege of meeting Bob Cicherillo who was the MC for the event. Great guy, very down to earth super cool! I also met Branch Warren who was very friendly. Branch is an amazing athlete and a top notch human being. An all-around great night! Here are a few photos from the show and from the photoshoot I had earlier in the day. Thank You & God Bless
