John Nolan

John Nolan, who trains at Gym Bumz Fitness in Lansing, MI, is currently preparing for the upcoming Detroit Grand Prix, held on June 11th. He'll be entering the bodybuilding contest in the Over 50 category, but he assures us that if he enjoys the experience, he will continue competing.

To say that Nolan has been training hard just for this contest, would be the understatement of the century. Under the tutelage of his training partner and guru, Amanda McDonald, John has been able to get lean and put on muscle - almost simultaneously. The idea seems to be an emphasis on diet, with an aggressive cardio-vascular program, which sees a variety of machines with interval frequencies.

The photos in this post were taken by John's (and our) good friend, Alan Lewis, who took two sets between May 1st & May 8th. Although this may be a first show to John, he's got a great support system of friends that are rooting for him, and people that will be most proud of him for getting onto than stage, than whatever place he gets. The real battle in this sport is about being able to be the best possible you on contest day.
