Military Might, Ballsy Comments, Hot Hardbody and X-traordinary Workouts

Military Might

I’m currently on active duty in the U.S. Navy, and I competed in the Muscle Beach contest held in Venice, California, on Memorial Day weekend. I took the overall in the military category. I was disappointed not to see my photo in the coverage that appeared in the October ’08 IRON MAN. There were photos of many who didn’t place.

Ballsy Discussion

I was amused at Ms. Vorhees’ “ballsy” response [in the November ’08 issue] to my letter concerning Marzia Prince. She’s new to bodybuilding, but she already knows the words anabolic steroids. Maybe she’s had a bad experience with “teeny” balls. Just so she knows, real men – and real bodybuilders—don’t use steroids. We do, however, love beautiful women posing with heavy metal. By the way, my “boys” are just fine, thanks.

Editor’s note: Thank you for that response from the, um, heart—and for giving us another opportunity to run a photo of Marzia.

Say Yes to Science

The past few issues have included scientific articles by Jacob Wilson and Gabriel Wilson. The training piece on eliciting a growth hormone response in the gym was good [October ’08], but the HMB article in the following issue was an eye-opener. IRON MAN has always had the best info out there, and you keep making it better. Keep it coming.

Editor’s note: The brothers Wilson have promised more blockbuster features to come. They do know their stuff.

Hardbody Beauty

I don’t usually write to magazines, but when I saw Sasha Brown in the November issue [“Action Figure”], I had to comment. What a gorgeous, dark-haired, green-eyed beauty! And those legs in that red miniskirt. Let’s see more of Sasha in a future issue. Lots more!

X-traordinary Workouts

A few months ago I got a copy of the e-book X-traordinary Muscle Building Workouts by Steve Holman and Jonathan Lawson. I wasn’t even through the first chapter before I was totally stoked. Reading about the guy who gained almost 20 pounds of muscle in a few months, along with big strength increases, like 65 pounds on his bench, got me so fired up. I went on Workout 1 [the 3D Power Pyramid] and gained 10 pounds in six weeks. I’m ecstatic and excited to dive into another X-traordinary workout. Thank you for real workouts that work.
