    [ Arnold Sports Festivals hemsida] har [ snabba uppdateringar] på de otroliga mängder aktiviteter helgen erbjuder – och man kan även följa dem på [ Twitter]. Nedan ett nypostat inlägg:

    Victor Martinez’s passion for muscles started at an early age when he read comic books and spent a lot of time drawing super heroes with large muscles. The Incredible Hulk and wrestling’s Hulk Hogan were among his favorites to sketch.

    As a teenager Martinez was always competing in sports such as baseball, basketball, football, and tennis. Weight training was an easy transition for him to make, and bodybuilding was the natural next step. By the age of 24 Martinez won his first amateur bodybuilding contest, six years later he won his first professional contest. He’s competed at the Arnold Classic four times, bettering his placing each time and in 2007 he won first place. Now he’s considered by many as the favorite to win the 2009 Arnold Classic.

    Martinez took 2008 off from competition due to an injury to his knee he received while training. ”It’s difficult to make a comeback after an injury. I had to change my training habits and restructure my workouts. I’m not afraid to try new creative things. I stay positive and know I’ll overcome the challenge,” Martinez said.

    When asked what other sports going on at the Arnold Sports Festival interested him Martinez quickly admits he enjoys martial arts. ”Successful bodybuilders and martial artists need the same high level of discipline,” he says. ”I like watching (mixed martial arts fighters) Wanderlei Silva and Quinton ‘Rampage’ Jackson because of the energy they have in the ring,” he added.
