Mark Dugdale Doubles Training, Hungry for Moreby John Meadows on March 7, 2014
A crowd has gathered. A dozen cameras are flashing. iPhones and iPads are recording video. The two lifters barely have room to walk around and load plates. But they seem unfazed. Their focus never wavers.
It’s the day after the Olympia, a time when every physique athlete schedules his or her photo shoot. Figure competitors wearing nothing but makeup and dental floss. Top female bodybuilders wearing bondage gear and five o’ clock shadows. Spritzed and oiled men pretending to lift as professional photogs scurry around them.
