August MD Sneak Peek! Victor, Roelly, Dexter and Leg Day with the Legends!
MD EXCLUSIVE: The Trials of Victor Martinez
Victor Martinez has had more than his share of challenges and tragedies to rise above. Not all of his battles have been onstage but like the true champion that he is, Victor always bounces back. Victor— the man Ronnie Coleman said has the genetics, structure and what it takes to be Mr. Olympia— has been up and he’s been down. He has passed through another one of life’s roadblocks and is locked and loaded to train like the beast he is!
Victor’s amazing story is documented exclusively in this month’s MD in “The Trials of Victor Martinez.” Legendary bodybuilding historian Peter McGough gives readers the whole story, from Victor’s carefree childhood in the Dominican Republic and later struggles with his father, to the glory of standing on the Mr. Olympia stage and almost bringing home the Sandow— to time behind bars and finally, freedom and a new beginning. This is a powerful, human drama about one of the world’s greatest bodybuilders and Victor’s story is told by one of the world’s greatest bodybuilding journalists— a story you’ll find only in MD.
What’s Next for Dexter Jackson?
Few men in pro bodybuilding have been at the top of their game as long as Dexter “The Blade” Jackson. At 42 years old and after 12 years as a pro, his unique package of round muscle bellies, incredible shape and symmetry, and razor-sharp condition make him one of the most dominant— and consistent— athletes in the history of our sport. But Dexter has hit a few bumps in the road lately, and he talks to Flex Wheeler in “What’s Next for Dexter Jackson?” Many feel that Dexter reached his peak in 2008 when he claimed our ultimate title, the Mr. Olympia. Though he has won two more pro shows since then, Dexter has struggled to stay in the top five of the Olympia and he took fifth at the last Arnold Classic, a contest he had won three times previously.
Leg Day With the Legends: Kai Greene, Jay Cutler and Branch Warren
MD’s Sean Andros has been fortunate in his career to watch Kai Greene, Jay Cutler and Branch Warren train legs, which has allowed Sean to ask these legends any questions that came to mind. In “Leg Day With the Legends,” Sean gives us an inside look at the training style of these leg monsters and shares the lessons he’s learned with MD readers. This is your chance to learn what Kai, Jay and Branch do, why they do it and how to take that into your gym.
Rolling the Dice With Roelly Winklaar
Which Version of The Dutch Beast Will We See Next?
When Roelly Winklaar burst on the scene with his stunning win at the 2009 Arnold Amateur, his debut had all the makings of the birth of a future bodybuilding superstar. Roelly’s momentum continued the following spring as he launched his rookie season in the IFBB, winning the New York Pro. Since then, his career has been less than jaw dropping. Is Roelly going to fulfill his early promise, or will he be like so many others with phenomenal potential who never quite followed through on it? In “Rolling the Dice With Roelly Winklaar: Which Version of The Dutch Beast Will We See Next?,” Team MD experts and IFBB Hall of Fame bodybuilders Shawn Ray, Flex Wheeler and Kevin Levrone give their opinions on the future of The Dutch Beast.
