2007 Arnold Preview - David Henry Preparing To Slay The Giants!

In 2007 David was the favorite alongside Toney Freeman to battle it out, but the mighty Henry had fallen down to sixth place at the Iron Man. See what David is doing different as he preps for the Arnold.

A sixth place finish at the Iron Man Pro was something that was more of a shock to his fans, critiques and competitors than to the Giant Killer himself - David Henry.

Last year Henry pushed Lee Priest to the wire when the two dueled for the spoils to which Priest eventually racked his third pro win. Many wouldn't have had a problem with Henry taking the 1st place trophy and many believed his superior conditioning was much more deserving.

In 2007 David was the favorite alongside Toney Freeman to battle it out which would have been a classical David and Goliath saga. Freeman kept his promise and dominated the first pro show of the year but the mighty Henry had fallen down to sixth place.

Although he was fighting for a position he hadn't hoped for, he was having fun and enjoying the learning experience even though he is now considered a veteran of the sport. Henry admitted that he tried something different in his preparation for the show but unfortunately for him and fortunately for his competitors it didn't go quite as planned.

He has managed to pile 5-6lbs of lean beef to his 5'5" frame since last years Olympia where he was grossly overlooked, and considering his height, that's more gracious than Pamela Anderson's tailor.

Following a FLEX photo shoot the day after the Iron Man, Henry acknowledged that if it wasn't broken last year then he will return to his proven formula for the Arnold Classic two weeks later. He is extremely confident that his condition will be rectified in Columbus and with his added mass his intimidation will compare to a glutial massage by a fat hairy guy called Wolfgang.

Henry has devoted the extra gains that will be made visible at the Arnold, is to his partner and soul mate - Nikki. Nikki is an extremely outgoing individual and has rubbed off some of her positive attributes onto her Giant Killer.

    "Just be easy with one another. I see everyone, including myself struggling with how to be happy, when the reality is, you really are that happy and that person to whom you smile everyday for is right there for it all. I was told this a while ago...

    'Why is it so hard to want to be happy,
    it's not an unreasonable request.'

    "She is right and hit it right on the head. For those chats, I am thankful. Be blessed to have someone, for they are the individuals that make our souls bloom and our hectic lives more consistent (Thanks Nicki!)" were Henry's parting words.

Personally, I felt a night and day mental and spiritual change within David Henry and I predict we will see a night and day physical change within the Giant Killer from the Iron Man to the Arnold Classic.
