Maaz surprised everyone with his sensational form last month at Musclemania® India as he went on to earn the title of the BEST Natural Physique athlete in the country. "It's a dream come true. I did not place in the first two contests I entered last year. But that did not deter me from pursuing my goals. Rather, it motivated me more to dig deep and find out where I need to improve. I periodized my training split and nutrition, and BAM! Gains and more gains!" he says. "Now that I've reached here, the next step to becoming a Musclemania® PRO is much harder, but I'm all game for it. Already 2 kgs heavier than the contest last month, and thanks to my ecto-meso bodytype, I hold no more than 7-8% bodyfat. I admit my lower body needs to grow... a LOT. I've been training legs 2-3 times a week for over 6 months now. They've gotten way better will only keep improving. I look forward to competing with the MM Pros."
Freelance trainer Surya from Chennai says "It's NOT just 'One big step' that does it all...it's a lot of little steps... a LOT of them!!!"
Surya put in a great fight last month at the highly competitive inaugural Musclemania® India. He says he's training nonstop for the 2015 series. He will be one of the over 150 athletes competing at the Musclemania® Chennai regionals this year.

Like a lot of Indian bodybuilders who have amazing physiques, Mobin is a classic example of flawless symmetry with full muscle development. The 5'8", 180 lbs., 27 year old trainer started training when he was just 12 years old. "My father used to be a wrestler, so would make me do all sorts of exercises - especially for my legs, chest, back," Mobin explains. "I truly believe that it was his influence which gave me a head start into bodybuilding and why my physique is so complete." Mobin will be competing at Musclemania® India in August where for the first time he will test himself among the country's best natural bodybuilders.
By day, Amit Naik works as a senior IT analyst for a major global business processing company. But afterwards, the Mumbai native takes on a more physically active role as a serious bodybuilder. The 5'7", 165 lbs. lifetime natural bodybuilder trains daily and eats all natural grains, fish and other whole foods. "I am looking forward to competing in Musclemania® because it is all natural and so am I," Amit says. "It will be exciting to compete with other all natural boys."
