  • Mike Liberatore 6 Days out from the 2011 Phoenix Pro


    Mike Recently competed at the Europa Dallas and took 5th to Mark Alvisi in 4th. The are looking for a repeat in addition to others such as Troy Alves, Hidetada Yamagishi, Ed Nunn and more, so it should turn out to be a pretty good IFBB Pro Bodybuilding COntest.

    In this video Mike reviews what little he's changing from last week to this week as well as tweaking some things based on experience such as getting over the fear of eating too much. In this game, sometimes more is good but how does one make that decision? Sometimes it depends on or relies on a 3rd party to make unemotional decisions based on how the athlete looks at that very moment.

        I think the new 212 division is made for him!

        I like his classic look.

          ^^^^ He just told you he is "too tall" for that division...he weighted in at 225lbs on stage at Dallas Europa...why would he lose muscle he dieted and trained so hard for to drop down to 212?

          Example of an IFBB pro that made a bad decision by dropping down in the now 202 class is Mark Dugdale, who took a close 2nd a few years ago in the open Iron Man and hasn't achieved much in the 202lbs division. Thankfully it's being upped to 212 so Mark will have a better shot next year.

          Thanks to MD for the Mike Liberatore coverage, guy seems like a very likeable down to earth pro. Gotta give him credit for grinding it (like he said it's his job to compete), hopefully he'll soon get more credit for his showings...he could have been 4th place in Dallas ahead of Mark Alvisi. Still good for Mike that he hasn't tried to outgrow his frame, he's kept a streamlined physique with good clean lines, no gut at all. The type of effort should be rewarded...Ronnie Rockel has to "pay his dues"...maybe someday soon Mike will have done the same. With a bit more improvement on his back and chest he could be really dangerous in these shows. I hope he gets a top 3 placing soon either way. Wishing Mike all the best.

            More pros out to take notes form Mike on how to repeat good conditioning more than once or twice a year.

              I definitely think with more back and chest thickness that Mike could snag an Olympia qualification at any show, save maybe the Arnold.

                When this guy flexes, his muscles just pop. You know when hes not flexing you might even think hes soft cause you hardly see striations and veins but then he does a side chest and hes hard as fuuuuck. Also when he did the incline movement at 8.53, his chest looks awesome.

                  He looks a little soft, but the last six days are the drying period. I think he will walk on stage looking amazing. Dude is absolutely massive

                    I have always liked Mikes physique....very smart too. I like these smaller shows because the quality of BBers seems to be better (mass, shape, symmetry wise). You have Mike, Alves, Hide, Nunn! Great lineup!
