This is the place to get to know Rob Youells! Have at it!

We are proud to announce the newest addition to Team MD: NPC Heavyweight bodybuilder Rob Youells.
Rob is fresh off a second-place finish at the 2011 NPC Nationals, where he narrowly missed first and the chance to become an IFBB pro. Now he’s hard at work packing on some size to make a run at the 2012 NPC USA Championships on July 27-28. MD’s Publisher and Editor-in-Chief Steve Blechman had this to say about the newest member of the team: “Rob proved last year he is a force to be reckoned with. I can’t wait to follow along as he takes his training and his physique to the next level in 2012!”
Along with his success onstage, Rob has been showcased in nearly 40 features in fitness magazines, including two covers. He’s also been on “Saturday Night Live,” Conan O’Brien, “Guiding Light,” a handful of movies and a recurring role in the video game “Grand Theft Auto.”
Rob and three other bodybuilders (yet to be named) will be featured in MD TV’s pre-NPC USA video documentary series. Fortunately for us, Rob couldn’t wait to come onboard and start contributing so we got an early start. Before the video series kicks off in May, Rob will be blogging, talking to you on the forums and showing up in a few off-season videos.
Like most young (and old) bodybuilders, signing with MD was a dream come true for Rob, who commented: “I really want to thank Steve and Sean for having so much faith in me. Muscular Development is the most cutting-edge source for the best and brightest in bodybuilding, so it’s an amazing honor to be part of the family.”
Look out for Rob’s first blog this week and videos soon after, only at www.musculardevelopment.com!
