Mike Yablon: 3 Weeks Out

5'4" 39 year old personal trainer Mike Yablon trains at the 19th Street Complete Body and Spa in New York. He is three weeks out from the NPC USA Championships in the video above (four weeks in the video below) and at 23 days to go he weighed in at 197lbs.

Yablon has been competing as a light heavy since 2006, placing in the top 5 in 2006 and 2008. Last year he came in 7th tipping the scales at 198lbs. Here he is in 2006:

Jose Raymond: Tampa Bay 202!

With "cross striated quads…thickly muscled….great posing…striated glutes" according to RxMuscle's VP Sean Andros, fellow contributor Dave Palumbo thought Jose and Steve Namat "seem[ed] to be vying for 1-2" liking "Jose's size over Namat's slightly better conditioning." And by size he means that Jose had to strip down to his underwear to make weight!

Mark Alvisi: Southern States

We haven't seen a whole lot of 33 year old Mark Alvisi from Delray Beach, FL since he earned his pro card at the 2009 NPC USA Championships. Around this time last year the 5'9" then 216lb heavyweight won the whole show in rare form.

Having gained some significant weight the Gaspari Nutrition sponsored Alvisi is preparing to make his pro debut this August in Dallas (he's currently hovering around 240lbs at 8 weeks out). Follow him on Facebook and at his new website. And for more of his Southern States guest spot see below and then go to Musclepapa John's.
