By far the Olympia is the Superbowl of bodybuilding. You will be able to see the top dogs show off their hardwork and dedication to this awesome sport. Not to mention it is an great honor just to be among the chosen few of the sponsored athletes of ANIMAL and UNIVERSAL. So me making the trip from Southern Cali is a no brainer. That whole weekend is going to be one for the books. And if I was able to be chosen for this promo not only will it be the icing on the cake. but will make my first Olympia trip just even that much more awesome.

I've been seeing bodybuilding shows for years, but never the O. It's always just sort of been out of reach for me to be able to actually get seats for the night show. I've gotten used to it, and usually am content to watch the video later, but this would be an incredible opportunity to see the best compare their poses on the stage in real time.

Since I'm coming up to Vegas mostly to be with my Animal kin to begin with, and even more importantly to -train- with them at the ABC, the chance to be at the show with them and get to see and compare notes over dinner afterwards would be no-sugar icing on the low-carb cake!

. . . I just don't want to tick off the three guys I'm riding up from L.A. with! <grin>

Animal's done and is doing so much for me already with Rage's Iron Contest, I almost feel greedy for asking, but I've got to go for it, just in case.

Please let me come to the O!

I would find a way to make it out to Vegas from Miami, if I had the opportunity to get to watch the Mr Olympia in person! Let alone the chance to meet the Animal Crew that serve as such an inspiration. I am sure I would learn more in a weekend than I have for the last year or so looking into the Iron game. Animals let me in!!

It would be a blast to hang and watch the best event of the year by the Animal crew, the guys that bring it everyday. You guys are the best in what you do and with that, comes great pride, it would be the best of both worlds to be able to join you guys,....The Animal crew knows how to motivate and motivate well!...

It would be an honor and a privilege to be able to not only see the O but to hang with the Animal crew. I look up to all of them and consider them great influences in my passion for bodybuilding. I've been lifting for a little over 6 years now and have always just seen the O from the internet. I'm sure every member of this site is deserving of being able to go, I just hope that I'm the fortunate one that gets the opportunity.

So often we at the forum talk about this path, this journey, this way of life. It's more than a hobby. For us it's a burning passion, a desire that reaches to our core, an insatiable need we have. We discuss different training styles, give nutritional advice, wake up and roll out of bed everyday at 0500.

So much like everyone else, yet so different...

We are another breed of man, breathing in motivation, exhaling progress... even as I write, I'm not even satisfied using such colorful description. Words are so black and white. How can you describe the dedication? The passion? One that can find the words to describe this has a gift indeed. If you're with us, you know what I'm talking about.

We all remember the shakes we felt before we stepped on stage for our first show. The dry mouth, the heat from the blinding lights, the heavy breathing... Yet not all was negative. There's the rush of adrenaline, the feeling of the pump searing through your body, and then the first skin-tearing pose; contracting as hard as you can.

Going to the Olympia, hangin with the Animal crew may elicit the same euphoric reaction. You are at the Mecca of the bodybuilding world. I've read that in the Islam religion, Mecca is the holiest of places. How else can you compare the Olympia? Not only are you experiencing the same feelings we felt at our first show, but you are soaking in the entire experience. Feeding off of it.

Eat up. It comes but once a year.

Olympia. The biggest show of the year. Im pretty new to the sport of bodybuilding but have always marvaled at the pictures in magazines of the competitiors. Seeing it live would be amazing. Ive been to two shows but they were both local. I still am waiting for the chance to go to the big one. It is one of my goals. Hanging with the animal crew would be amazing to they have provided me with inspiration through the forum. I would love to meet them. It would be an experience that i wouldnt be able to describe. Hanging out with with the crew while watching idols on stage. This would be a dream come true.

I would like to go see the olympia and hang with the animal crew, because blatantly i love the sport and everything about it. I love being able to push your limits and watching your body change in front of your very own eyes. I recently turned 18 and i know im young and fairly new to the sport but i just love it. For the past 2 years i have been extremely dedicated to the sport. Training day in and day out, missing parties and not hanging out with friends to make a meal (And again im 18, if thats not dedication then what is??) Kind of rambling but to repeat it i love it and wouldnt change a thing. I am always opened to knew things and would love to just hang out talk and figure out everything you guys go through, and just open my ears and listen and learn.
Thanks for the time

i want to go to this years olympia because this line up is DEEP! in the past there has been one athlete that was the dominant competitor..in the 80's lee haney was on top. from 92-97 dorian yates dominated. 98-05 it was king ronnies reign. 06-07 jay finally dethroaned ronnie, and in 08 dexter wins his 1st! this year you have 8 guys fighting for those top spots. the competitors:

!.) phil heath - took a year off.round full muscle bellies, tiny waist, good conditioning, crazy arms!

2.) Dexter jackson - good conidtioning, symmetry, tiny waist, and good round muscle bellies

3.) jay cutler - thick, alot of muscle. comes in 100% its lights out!

4.) dennis wolf - took a year off. 4th place last year. broad shoulders, tiny waist, and good quad sweep

5.) kai greene - crazy back and legs! crazy conditioning, thick!

6.) Victor martinez - 2nd place in 07 olympia, and arnold. comes in conditioned its light out! carries a lot of mass while maintaing good lines


7.) Branch Warren - Thick, hard,good coniditioning a lot of muscle, and crazy legs!

8.) toney freeman - the X man, comes in conditioned he's dangerous

i love the ABC's because you get to meet new people who love to train hard and share different ideas/information. i always look forward to our monthly ABC's in So.Cal. this will be my 1st olympia and first opportunity to train with pro athletes. this is the only sport/events where you get the opportunity to train with pro athletes for free

Im already stoked about the ABC event being in vegas, but im even more excited about it bein at the O. Being apart of the Rage's Iron Contest has been an amazing expirence. Although, hangin with the best would be an honor. Its a dream of mine to eventually, and hopefully, one day be apart of the animal crew. Aside from my wife, 2 boys,& new baby girl, bodybuilding, the forum, the guys in my ABC crew, and universal supplements have changed my life. Going from 250, 28%bf to 185 6%bf is only the begining of my journey. And the chance to feel like a straight rook sittin next to THE CREW would only motivate me further in my journey.

Much respect, honor, and admiration.... DBOY

I would love to go to this contest because the lineup will be INSANE! I would love to get the sites and sounds and all the experiences of a huge bodybuilding show. I have a few hundred dollars saved up and if I was given a chance to get not only into the Olympia, but meet with the animal crew and get to hang out with them I would be on that plan in a heartbeat.

I love this sport, im looking at competing one day in this sport, and going to a show of this magnitude with everything going on in it would be one of the biggest moments in my life!

Good luck to everyone else in this contest.

I would love to go see the O because I live in Vegas and every year I always think about going but for some reason can't make it. This year comes down to a money issue honestly...my wife is currently unemployed while her office relocates and we have a 14 month old daughter so as you could imagine money is really tight right now. I absolutely love the sport of bodybuilding and seeing the O would be phenomenal. Not to mention, it would give me huge inspiration to finish my contest prep for November and step on that stage once again. Good luck to all who enter this promo and may the best ANIMAL win.

...well, I've recently had a major change in my lifestyle and your company has played a major part in it. Back in October of last year I was around 280 pounds of goo. Sure, I'd lifted a lot in the past, but a slipped disc put a stop to that back in 2001. My lifting up until then was off and on...more off than on.

Then I found this place. I don't post here a lot, but I read almost everything. The sense of community here is amazing! It's good to see brothers in iron from around the world all moving towards their goals.

Thanks to this forum, my lifting spark was rekindled....I began to get back into my powerlifting, and blew up to 322 pounds...much more solid than I was, but still not in shape at all....unless you consider round to be a shape. Still people could tell i was a lifter, and not some couch potato.

Buddies began to ask me if I had ever tried leaning out with a cut. Nope...never considered it. Powerlifters don't care about that shit.....mostly. But a retweaking of my back injury let me know I had to make some changes in my lifting and my body composition, and fast.

So this February I began a cut. Started lifting more like a bodybuilder. Even started cardio...LOL. The blub began to drop...and drop...and drop. People around me couldn't believe the changes. Their positive feedback helped me keep going. Success breeds success, after all.

So here I am now in September about 7 months after the beginning of my cut. I'm sitting at around 250 pounds, the lightest I've been in many, many years. I'm also the leanest I've ever been in my lifting career, around 14-15% depending on who's doing the pinching. I'm seeing things I haven't seen in ages...muscle separation, vascularity and oh-my-god, a waist!

I've decided to take it to the next level and start competing in bodybuilding next year. There's a lot of work I have left to do to get there, but I'll do it. This is a total lifestyle transformation for me. I am glad to have begun the journey, and look forward to where it leads me.

So why pick me for this? Well, not as a reward or anything for what I've done. Instead it would be incentive and inspiration for what's yet to come. I can't wait, and I'm glad you guys are making the trip with me. Thanks!

BTW: here's a link to a before and after shot: http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2546/3928656587_f0c38ce9cf.jpg

This would be such an amazing opportunity. Entering this sport has made so many positive changes in my life. It has got to be one of, if not the most, self-rewarding experience I've ever taken part in. I can't even imagine seeing or even meeting the pro's in person. My inspiration would only jump to a level beyond what I can imagine. I draw a massive amount of motivation and inspiration simply by reading the articles and posts on animalpak.com. I've got a ways to go. But thats the exciting part; knowing I have an incredible journey ahead of me that will never end. I look forward to the awesome challenge that lies ahead.

To be part of bodybuilding history and witness truely gifted people go to battle against themselves and each other would be a blessed experience. The ability to witness people at the height of their profession giving everything they've got would be extremely motivating and push me in all my undertakings to the limit.

It would be killer to be able to do this. I have loved bodybuilding since I was little.
Mr. Lou was someone I always thought was awesome.
My He Ė Man toys, G.I. Joes and all my toys rocked with muscular raw power.
I never got the chance to get into the life or sport other than following it. No one lifted around me and we only had one gym to join but never had the funds.
No I am totally gone in shape but strive to get in; 6 feet 300 lbs, and 30% body fat, not good.
This would be great because with losing my job, moving back home, and little else going on; I would hope that it would put the fire up my ass and get me to push, struggle, and train that much harder to get into the best and most powerful shape in my life.
To be only feet from the best of the best and sitting next to the best crew there is; how can I not be infused with the power and spirit.
I know I would look out of place being the fattest on the block but I would hope that being there would make all that change.
With great humility I request a site on this ride into history.

I will start this off, by saying I am not entering the Promo, but, that it is a Promo unlike any other.
How many supplement co. are doing this for their followers? This is simply unbelievable, free tickets to attend the mecca, the holy grail of the industry, the Olympia. The stage is set for cartoon like characters to come to life, Will Cutler regain his old form? Will Dexter retain the title with his package? Will Wolf Heath and Kai come into their own and rip the Sandow from Dex's hands? What about Vic, will his leg have healed, and will his superior structure, and the new judging guidlines finally give him what he was robbed of in '07?

So many questions, so many ways the contest could go. Some 16-17 years ago, I received my first weight set, as well as several M and F, Musclemag and Flex Mags. Pics of Arnold, Zane, Flex n Shawn as well as Lee Priest (my fav.) were proof to me that if you worked towards your fitness goals and put your heart and soul into fitness, that you could become a cartoon hero. So 17 years ago I set out to become a superhero, just like Priest, Arnold etc.

Now, to actually go to the olympia expo, and vegas and be amongst these Idols of mine will be the most surreal moment ever, and one which will leave me without words. To also lift at the ABC with new found heroes such as Wrath and Ox, and just to meet the guys who I have taken so much information from and are the biggest inspiration to me in the Forvm such as NaturalGuy, TreeTrunkLegs, G Diesel, Big Al, etc, I am so thankful for
the opportunity. When i actually get to Vegas and booth 24, all i will be able to say is nice to meet u, and hopefully thank U to everyone and everything Animal for all that i have gained through the Forvm and Universal Products. After that I will probably forget how to make conversation as I will be in automatic awe of the whole scene.

I am very blessed and so lucky to go to vegas, to check out the compound and hit up the ABC. I feel as if I had already won. It doesnt get any better.

So i am not going to enter the contest and wish the best to all those who entered. I want someone, a fellow bro to win, and have his weekend become as special as mine will be. There have been some really good entries and its good to see their are others out there who live and breathe bodybuilding as i have/do. I am definitely gonna watch the prejuding and the finals and will love hearin what everyone thought at the ABC the next day.

and, I just read on MD that Priest is gonna be at the Expo too, to meet him as well as everyone else, more than my wildest dreams come true!

Anyhow, i wish everyone luck with the best promo for any sport i have seen, sorry to take up so much time with so many words and sorry to waste everyones time who is going to read all of my dribble, but i had to say all this stuff now, cause i will be at a total loss for words when i hit Vegas.

See u all in 1 week/cant wait

Why I want to go see the Mr. Olympia Finals? Well, I have never gone to the Olympia before, this will be my first year going. About a month and a half ago I started planning out all the details, looking at hotels and ticket costs. Not long after my radiator on my truck cracked and began to leak, I knew the cost of the repair would prevent me from going to the Olympia, but I was determined. I started thinking of other ideas of how I was going to get there. After some brainstorming, I decided I would ask my mom if she wanted to go on a Vegas trip so she can shop and I mentioned that there was going to be a bodybuilding show there and I wanted to go to. She liked the idea of shopping and agreed. The plan was perfect, my mom would pay for a hotel room, give my buddy and I a ride to Vegas, and I would be able to go to the Olympia. I was ecstatic, this yearís lineup is so stacked and anyone could be the winner. I quickly began looking for cheap tickets for the show and when the time came that I finally had the money for them, they were sold out. I was bummed; I would have to stream the show in my hotel room, knowing that right across the street, this great event was happening. So why do I want to see the Olympia Finals? Itís been a long and hard road making plans to go this coming up weekend, the stage is set for one of the best shows in years, and the thought of going with the Animal crew is Unreal.

Why do I want to hang with the animal crew? Easy, the animal crew members are my bodybuilding role models. I mean, take one look around my room and you will know that I am an animal fan.

Those are the pictures of the 11 animal posters I have hanging in my room that help keep me motivated to train hard and diet day in and day out.

Going to the Olympia show with any member of the animal crew would be a privilege. After all the work I went through to make it to the Olympia, going to the show for free, with a member of one of the most hardcore bodybuilding images known today, would just be awesome.

Late entry because I didn't know I was eligible. Hope I'm not too late!

Why do I want to go? I've never been to a body building show or an expo of any kind and this would be the chance of a life time for me. It would so rock to be able to hook up with the Animal crew at the O and then slam some iron and grub at the ABC out there.

I've been wanting to make this one and the Arnold for years now but it has just never worked out financially for me to be able to make it. I've come to find that this sport is a big part of my life now. Been bitten by the iron bug and I think it's high time I made it out to the O to see the sport first hand.

Please consider me for your selection. It would make my year, thats for sure.

I began lifting as a way to channel my energy in a more positive way after going through an eating disorder. Starting out I thought that the climb ahead of me was too challenging and too daunting, but I persisted through it, and over the past few years I have come really enjoy bodybuilding and power training, living and breathing it each day.

Being able to go to the Olympia show would be a great experience due to the simple fact that I would be able to see all of the hard work and dedication all of the contestants put in for many years, just so they can look their best on stage for the show. As anyone who has been lifting for a while will say, this transformation doesnít happen overnight. It is the culmination of many meals of tilapia and brown rice, long Friday and Saturday nights in the gym, and fatiguing workouts where you feel run over by a semi truck (leg days for sure!). Seeing their dedication to their sport will be very awe inspiring and further fuel my own drive to work hard in bodybuilding and power training. While I am going to Las Vegas for the expo and to meet up with old friends, I was not able to purchase tickets for the show due to cost, opting instead to hang out with everyone at the expo. Being given an opportunity to go would further complete my first experience at the Mr. Olympia weekend.

One of the main reasons why I decided to plan a trip to Vegas was to meet and hang out with the Animal crew at the expo. Just last year was when I was first introduced to the Animal brand while looking for multivitamins, after hearing good things about the website I logged on and was hooked. Since then I have been a huge supporter of not only the Animal brand, but I think more importantly, the Animal mentality. Reading all of the articles, seeing all of the training videos and looking at the Cage media have really pushed my personal weight lifting goals and techniques to the next level. I have ascertained a lot of knowledge just by following those who are part of the Animal crew. Being able to actually hang out with the crew for a bit and pick their brains with questions about training/nutrition and the lifestyle that is required to be the best would simply be invaluable. I planned this trip specifically to learn and meet others who have the same passion as I do for bodybuilding and weight training, and hanging with the Animal crew would be the ultimate way to do so.

I thank you for your consideration. Good luck to everyone who entered. I will see everyone in Las Vegas Ė wearing my black Animal t-shirt!

Why do I want to hang with the animal crew? Easy, the animal crew members are my bodybuilding role models. I mean, take one look around my room and you will know that I am an animal fan.

Those are the pictures of the 11 animal posters I have hanging in my room that help keep me motivated to train hard and diet day in and day out.

Going to the Olympia show with any member of the animal crew would be a privilege. After all the work I went through to make it to the Olympia, going to the show for free, with a member of one of the most hardcore bodybuilding images known today, would just be awesome.
