Who's down for the 2nd Annual Olympia ABC on the Sunday following the big show at Gold's on Flamingo?

Last year was the bomb and was just a taste of what is to come. I know there will be many of the heavyweights from the Animal crew working with me at the expo and training over the course of the week, culminating with a big Animal Barbell Club gathering to closeout the weekend.

The time is drawing near. We're just over a month out from the Mr. O weekend. I'll be there. Will you?

Peace, G

Waiting to have the gym set in stone, J. But I hope it will be the same as last year. Definitely my favorite gym in Vegas.

That time sounds ideal and that date is a given.

Definitely not a fancy joint, but they are in the parking lot of a hardcore gym, so they are used to catering to the needs of bodybuilders. Shouldn't be a problem to get what you need.

I'll probably be doing either delts or arms or a combo of both at the ABC, as it will be the last day of my training rotation. All are welcome to get down if interested.

I'm trying to decide between working my back at the ABC or arms -- Back is normally Friday, and Arms Monday, and I KNOW I'm not going to want to be up early enough to hit the gym Monday morning.

Anyone else up for torturing their arms? I'm a little guy -- I could use the help.

Ya know, I've been having the same debate. I never train on a Sunday; I was thinking of doing back with Sarge, but that's normally on Mon. Maybe I'll hit triceps with u instead..... something different.....LOL

Who knows whats gonna happen when we invade that gym anyhow!

You guys are more than welcome! That one was fun, but I wish I'd gotten more time of the others, too! It's hard when you're trying to train, as well.
