Jaffy So Ming Hei: Hong Kong Muscle

5'6" Jaffy So Ming Hei, the 2009 overall champ at the 2009 Honk Kong Bodybuilding Championships where he won the 75kg class (165lbs) and the Best Poser award:





Jaffy, who is sponsored by ALLMAX Nutrition, has won his class and the posing award each and every time he has competed at the Hong Kong Championships (2002, 2003, 2004 and 2007 - he competed in the 70kgs/154lbs class up until 2004). At the 2002 China Nationals he only placed 6th but got the Best Calves award, and from these more current pictures below (from June of 2009) you can see why!



The next Hidetada Yamagishi?

James Llewellin: 2.5 Weeks Out

Currently weighing 194lbs in these pictures, 18lbs heavier than at the same time out of the 2008 UKBFF British Championships (where he won the middleweight class and the overall). James has even lower carbs and a daily dose of 2 hours of cardio in store for him as he prepares for the 2010 IFBB Europa Show of Champions on April 16 and 17! James is planning on coming in peeled to the bone!!!

Mark Dugdale: 2004 vs. 2009

In 2004 then 29 year old 5'6" Dugdale won the light heavy class, and the overall title, at the NPC USA Championships weighing in at 196lbs.



The following February at the Iron Man, his first IFBB Pro show, Dugdale 'bulked' up to 208lbs and came in 8th. After some OK placings in the open division, in 2009 Dugdale seemed to embrace the 202 division, placing second in New York and Pittsburgh and then 4th at the Olympia. For the Sacramento Pro in November he went back to the open division, coming in 6th but it seems he is back to the 202 for 2010!






Dugdale, as with Rockel earlier this week, may not show the massive gains that Heath did over the years (and lets hope he keeps growing), but does (in my opinion) show much improved muscle density and conditioning in his later years!
