  1. Smile Armed Forces Bodybuilding show in Iraq


    On May 25th here in Taji, Iraq we will be having a bodybuilding competition for our troops who are currently serving here. I'm tyring to see if any companies would be willing to provide some sample supplements for the soldiers competiting. I'm trying to come up with a nice little gift bag for them just like ones you would typically recieve in shows in the US. I am currently serving in Iraq as well. I have been competiting in the figure division for about a year now. I think it's great that we have soldiers here fighting the fight and also finding the time to work out! Please feel free to contact me here or my email address, [email protected]

    Right on SSG Dean... and nice to see you made it back from R&R safely. You need to start going to the big gym in the morning so you can motivate me..

    Hope you get the support your looking for from these awesome companies. A little goes along way with these joe's out here who are working tirelessly trying to make a differance here and also trying to make a differance in themselves.

  3. This is a great idea and the troops would LOVE it! When I was in Iraq we had a few powerlifting comps. and those were a blast but no samples or anything.

  4. Thanks AFJON I'm hoping for some support from the companies. Its amazing how many people result to weight lifting to help them get through their time here I think it's great.

    Take Care
    Kelly

  5. Thanks. Just came back from R&R last week. I've been heading to the gym at like 4am now. Busy busy busy right.

  7. Ha ha. Thanks. I'm just hoping we get a little support for the guys in the show. Bodybuilding.com is going to advertise the show, so that's pretty cool.

    I'm at Misawa right now. I was actually at Osan before I got here. Southern Japan is nice but Misawa is way up in the sticks.

  24. I consider people serving in the military as heros/heroine. Hope you can get some supplements over there. I'm amazed you have internet access over there. Is it Satalite or what?. Good luck and God Bless.

  25. Right now were looking at roughly 15 people.

  29. Thank you very much for your support. As for internet, it's amazing some of the comforts we have here, it still kind of sucks being away from our families for 15 months. You have to find a good hobby here to keep your sanity.

    Very true. When I was in Iraq working 14-16 hours a day, I still found the time everyday to hit the gym. I had to get up at 3a.m. but it damn sure was worth it.
