An Interview With Mr. USA Dennis James!

Here are five questions with some great answers in a quick interview with Mr. USA, Pro Dennis James. See what he has been up to and what he planned for the future.

[ Q ] Tell us about your recovery from your Hernia Surgery and how has your training changed since then?

[ Q ] What are your reasons for choosing to compete in the Colorado Pro Am Classic, since you didn't last year?

    [ A ] My goal is to qualify for the 2007 Mr. Olympia which will be my 8th consecutive year doing the O. I would really like to put my name in the mix this year by trying to win all 3 shows in May and June, plus the prize money in Colorado is higher than the other spring shows and I think that makes it worth dieting for an additional 3 weeks.

[ Q ] How is life living and training in Germany since leaving Thailand?

    [ A ] Life couldn't be any better being back in Germany, I had second thoughts at first, since my daughter was not familiar with the German language but she's been in Germany school for 2 ½ years now and is already one of the best students in class. It feels great being back home were I grew up close to my parents, my brother, my sister, nephews and nieces.

[ Q ] What is your goal this year for competition weight and will that change after you qualify for the Mr. Olympia?

    [ A ] My goal is to be in my absolute best condition and I really don't care how much I will weigh when I step on stage. If I would have to guess then I would say anywhere from 245-253lbs instead of 260-65lbs. If the judges like the way I look at this weight then I won't change a thing for the Olympia 2007.
