Branch Warren competition

Anyone go to it down in Conroe this weekend (7/11/08)?

My stepson got into body building recently and won first place in teen mens comp. We're really proud of him for his dedication.

He's not a big structured kid, so he started off with very little advantage but really came through well. One of the trainers (also a competitor) at the gym he works at did some [gratis] training for Josh and really gave him the knowlege he needed.

Josh did his own routine and pegged the solo, didn't miss a step. Really good for a first show.
Yes, I could't be more proud of him.

Pix below. Feel free to comment.

he has a good start, in his teens, if he wants to make it to the top level though he will be moving the steroids, if not already on them. but his build now is a lot like arnold was back in the day, wide shoulders, triangle shape, with a small waist. Good luck in the future.

Thanks.

We have talked about the juice and know his isn't on it yet, we'll just have to wait and see. He's definitely got a disadvantage with his "slight" structure though (small boned).
He's so pumped right now and wants to move forward.

He's had several photo offers for modeling, stemming from the show, so maybe that will help with the $$. We actually did a photo shoot yesterday for one of the muscle mags that was at the show and made $150. They came up to Keller and we did a backyard shoot at his trainers house.

Congrats, he looks really good and his hard work shows!
I'm guessing he works out at Branch's gym in Southlake?
Branch used to come into Strouds all the time and workout with Johnnie Jackson and Jay Moore.
Watching them is what taught me that I will NEVER pay anyone in the world to train me.

Like has been said before though, if he wants to be or even wants to remain competitive, he will end up on the juice and/or HGH.
Either way, he looks great and VERY lean!!!

Branch invited Josh to come watch him workout but it was somewhere in Arlington I believe. Josh's trainer is good friends with Branch and introduced them at the hotel we were staying at.

Johnnie Jackson did a guest pose too. He has definitely become more "people friendly" in the last couple of years. I may have a shot of him too, looks freaking huge now, just not "Branch Warren" huge.

Thanks bro.
Yeah, he's come a long way..... and has a long way to go!
He's still a "I know everything there is to know" 17 year old. lol

All-in-all, he's a great kid, and I would much rather have him the way he is as apposed to a thug assed doper like much of todays kids. I really couldn't be more proud of him and his hard work right now.

That's exactly why I posted it. Not a great shot by any means but....

Kind of reminds me of something I've seen in a movie but just can't remember what/where.

He looks like the terminator (steel termy, not arnold) kinda has a small head with the beady eyes in that shot.

He seemed like a good kid, he'll grow out of that know it all phase when life slaps in in the face with a brick a few times.

First off that's awsome that he won! You can tell he's put in a LOT of hard work.
I also have the small bones, however that is GOOD in bodybuilding just bad for powerlifting. Im sure you guys have figured out that legs and back are what win bodybuilding shows.
Muscle on small bones is harder to build yes, but it looks better in the long run. how old is he? I missed the age.
True that if he wants to go anywhere in the sport he'll need the juicy, juice soon.

Thanks man.

Yeah, I trained several years ago with a guy (Winston Williams) who taught me that legs and back, not arms & chest like most believe, will win close competitions. Of course, good ab's don't hurt either.
I stressed that point to Josh but didn't believe he had the genetics to do so well in the leg area.

As for the hard work - Yes, he's put in a monumental effort, for a teen. I'm just glad it's over for now. lol I am sick of smelling chicken on the George Foreman 6 or 7 times a day, that and tuna.

Josh turned 17 back in May.

That's it! I remember now hearing that name several times.

Yeah, he's..... vertically challenged for sure, but he's pulling some nice wifey.
She was there with some photos too, and let me tell you, this chic is smokin!
Again, he's really a great guy to take the time to chat with Josh and give some advise on showing/working. His stock with Josh went up even further after the show.

He goes during the day a lot, IIRC from talking to Rendy. And yeah I gotta agree, it was weird meeting him the first time because he's maybe an inch taller than I am... but he's close to 240lbs and that's @ 5% BF... I'm 153 @ 10% BF!!!

He used to go to Movie Tavern in Bedford. I remember seeing him there a bunch. Johnnie Jackson that is.

This guy's a beast for sure.
