New Romance Novel Cover Model Stock Images Just In by John Quinlan

Hello everybody, just a couple quick updates for you on this Sunday morning. Below are a few photos I just received. The first is with my good friend Michael Fauci who is the God of nutrition. Anytime I ever have any questions about my diet I always go to Mike and he has all the answers and he is one of the nicest people I have ever known so a big thanks to Mike Fauci for always being so cool. I appreciate all the support Big Mike, 100% respect for you always my friend!

And yes, as I said before I have not only been doing gym shoots but I have also been doing Romance Novel Cover modeling. I know, at first I was like….”are you kidding me” but I as finally talked into it after quite some time and it’s all good. You are all correct as I am comfortable with my sexuality for some of these images, ha ha ha! Hey, eventually if these cover stock images land on the front of a big romance novel best seller by a big-time writer it would be quite the honor. But as a few of the people handling all my stuff have told me it’s good to be well rounded, one day I am doing more of a hard core gym shoot and the next I am doing more of a soft themed romance novel cover shoot. They have said it makes me a better model to be able to do a wide variety of genres rather than just one. Thanks for all the love and support everybody, means a lot! Any romance writer / author out there that is interested in using one of my cover model stock images for their next book cover please go to my gallery of book cover stock images by clicking on this direct link:

Gym Shoot & Photo Updates by John Quinlan

Hello Everybody,

Just a few updates to add for you. I had a great photo shoot today at Total Fitzness Gym in Wolcott, Connecticut. I would like to personally thank gym owner Dave Fitzpatrick for being so nice to me. This kid is a class act. Dave is in his mid 20's and owns his own gym and just competed in a bodybuilding show where he did very well. Dave has an amazing story as he is back at the top of his game after a car accident nearly took his life. You are a true example of inspiration, courage and determination Big Dave. You have my 100% respect always. Also want to thank John of for shooting some video of me as well as some new images. Both John and Dave really made this shoot come together for me and I appreciated that so much. There are also a few new YouTube videos added by The Big Dog just a couple hours ago from the shoot. Thanks so much as always my friend :) Check out the links and images below from everything that went on today. Thanks everybody for all the love and support!

Post Workout Shoot Interview by John Quinlan

Just wanted to give everybody an update right now. Here is a post workout shoot type interview that I just did. The film was added by The Big Dog....thanks :) I just briefly share my thoughts about my first show of the year in about a week, the NPC Jay Cutler Classic. I will be competing in the Men's Physique Division. I do mention how much respect I have for my fellow competitors, judges and all the athletes that step on stage at this great event. Jay Cutler is running the show and he is the guest poser as well so it should be great and I am honored to be part of it. Thanks everybody for all the love and support throughout my months of training. Much Love!

Thank You Frank Shamrock by John Quinlan

I have always wanted to get one last tattoo for quite some time. Being Irish, I am proud of my heritage and wanted something to show this. Something simple and sharp. For the longest time I have wanted to get a shamrock tattoo but every one that I saw really didn’t do anything for me and they all looked kind of plain. Then, last week, while looking I finally found the one I wanted. It was perfect, a shamrock with a tribal look to it. Well, when I read up a bit on this specific shamrock symbol I hit a bit of a snag. I had no idea that it was an official logo. Not only that, but I found out it was the official logo of former Mixed Martial Arts fighter Frank Shamrock. Shamrock is the adopted brother of former UFC champion Ken Shamrock and the logo also represents his school, Shamrock Martial Arts Academy. I have always had 100% respect for every MMA athlete in the world and Frank Shamrock is right at the top of the list. When he finally walked away from professional fighting he retired as the four-time defending undefeated UFC Middleweight Champion in which he was the #1 ranked pound for pound fighter in the world. With that being said, I knew what the right thing to do was. Contact Frank Shamrock for his approval. Frank got right back to me and said he would be honored and to send him a photo of the tattoo. Awesome guy! I would like to personally thank Frank Shamrock for being so nice to John Quinlan. Frank, just as you said you would be honored for me to get this tattoo, I am honored to call you my friend. God Bless You always! With that being said, this tribal shamrock tattoo that I got on April 20th of 2012 makes the 14th and final tattoo for me. This tribal shamrock was done by tattoo artist Brad Coleman of Drastic Tattoo & Body Piercing in Peabody, Massachusetts. All of my tattoos have an oriental and Irish tribal theme that I am very happy with. In the end, my tattoos are part of me as each one has meaning and tells a special story.

Here is my 14th and last tattoo that I spoke of above on my right ring finger

Here I am with tattoo artist Brad Coleman who did the tattoo at Drastic Tattoo & Body Piercing in Peabody, Massachusetts. Thanks Brad, you are an amazing artist and I appreciate you being so cool!

Just to finish off this post I thought I would add in again the video from yesterday one more time added to YouTube by the Big Dog of me to measure my body progress after I just finished my training session in the gym. This video is of me with 2 weeks to go until my first show of the year. I briefly discuss how I feel to this point in time and give a couple general updates.

God Bless

Body Fat % by John Quinlan

With just about 2 1/2 weeks until my first show of 2012 my body fat % I think is decent. I think I should get a skin caliper to measure my body fat %. That seems to be a greatest method of finding out. I am going to check around on this, maybe one of my readers knows :) Hit me up with a private message. Here are a few photos below from the past few weeks. Now entering the contest dieting zone!

Training Updates & My Friend Peter Karalekas by John Quinlan

Few quick updates today, had a couple of video updates in the gym this morning. training is going good with less than 3 weeks until my first contest of 2012. The workout video clip link posted below has film quality that isn't that good, so you really can't see any vascularity, cuts or anything but oh well just measuring my progress is the only real point of it. Gonna stay focused and just do the best I can my friends :)

I also wanted to thank my friend Peter Karalekas who I just got back in touch with after a 2 year absence. Great to talk with him again!

God Bless
