Amateur Bodybuilder of the Week: Robb Walker! - Pics and info and more!

How Did You Get Started?

In college I lifted weights to get stronger for sports. Then while serving in the United States Marine Corps, I got serious about the weights and gained some size. After getting out of the Corps I moved to Texas and decided to give it a try.

  • Why do you love Bodybuilding?

    All I can say is it's fun. I love competition. Plus I like living a healthy lifestyle.

    My body is my home, and I want to treat it right.

    I have always wanted to try new things in life. If you have a dream don't sit around waiting. Get up and do it. Living a healthy lifestyle, along with competing was a goal so I did it. And I love the way my body feels (minus the week prior to a show, but hey what are ya gonna do?)

    What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

    I want to gain between 10-20 lbs of solid muscle and eventually become a pro. I know that's a few years down the road, but its one of my goals. Hopefully sign a contract with a supplement company (now that would be sweet).

    What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

    If you believe in something go for it. Every time you hit the gym hit it hard. Don't let other discourage you, and the most important thing is NEVER GIVE UP.

    Iris Kyle, Ronnie Coleman, Dexter Jackson, Evan Centopani, Flex Lewis, Phil Heath, Tony Freeman. But I would also say that anyone that can have the discipline that bodybuilders have then everyone is a favorite in my book.
