Look out Worlds… Here Comes Rookie Mark Correa

by Edward Gemdjian

Rookie WNBF Pro Bodybuilder and Team Awesome! contributor, Mark Correa, burst onto the scene by winning

WNBF Nancy Andrews Pro

the Amateur World Lightweight championship last november. At 5’10” Mark knew his 157 lb. of muscle would not be enough to challenge the top natural pros, so the challenge brought to us this January was simple, pack on as much mass as possible and shock everyone by this year’s worlds.

Mark and I immediately began heavy weight training 5-6 times per week, while almost doubling his caloric intake. His off season weight jumped to 185 lb. and by the time he stepped onto his first pro stage in June Mark was a shredded 167lb. a full 10 pound increase in muscle, most notably in his striated Quadriceps and Glutes. An impressive 5th place finish opened some eyes, but Mark and I were not satisfied. We began planning our next training split in the bleachers between the prejudging and night shows.

Now, 4 weeks away from the biggest competition in his young career, Mark and I are putting the final touches on a most unbelievable one year transformation. Enjoy the workout video, and stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks!
