The first bodybuilding championship was held in Maldives during 1999, and before a National level competition Maldives participated in Mr. Commonwealth during 1998. I am delighted that I had the chance to serve BBFM since than.
Now where am I heading with Bodybuilding in Male’ Fitness Club(MFC), yes I am determined to work and produce bodybuilding talent in Maldives and win the Mr. Maldives by an athlete from MFC in the coming years.
In the past years MFC has not been well known for producing bodybuilders, as the sport was not our sole concentration in the club. The club was devoted to train all sporting talent and concentrate on recreational weight trainers and lifestyle exercisers. Now that the club has a good reputation in guiding the sports personals from all sporting areas, I have diverted my concentration on producing bodybuilding talent in the country.
In the history of bodybuilding in Maldives, MFC has participated in the Mr. Maldives competitions although we were not vocal on the area. In the past 2 years we have won 2nd, and 3rd place ranking in the flyweight category. And in 2005 our athlete won a 01st place too.
As this years Mr. Maldives is approaching we have selected our athletes for the competition, our team consists of 04 athletes and the team will be on perfect condition for challenge in December. The competition preparation has begun. I am convinced that my team will win medals for the club.
Competition preparation is a rough ride to bodybuilders, it takes a lot of discipline to get on stage with that perfect muscularity, symmetry and definition in the body and training is dead hard. The athletes have the winning spirit and they are hungry to win.
At present pre season training has been implemented, with lots of flexibility work and group exercise moves to loosen up their muscles. Posing practice is also going in same line along with pre season training.
On the 26th October the athletes has been checked for weak areas and training adjustments has been made for weak point training.
“When winning means more to you than just living”, we are hungry to bring the trophy to MFC. My athletes have the spirit and will not give up until the trophy is in our home.
