2012 Rhode Island Bodybuilding Championships Men’s Physique Final Call-Out for the Overall Title by John Quinlan

Just wanted to give a special shout out again to one of the greatest model athletes in the world today, Anton Antipov. It was a honor my friend being on stage with you at the 2012 Rhode Island Bodybuilding Championships Men’s Physique Final call-out for the overall title. I couldn’t have lost to a better person especially that you are a Physique Pro now. Congrats again on that, you deserve it!

PS, Ha ha ha, sorry again man when I met you last May in New Jersey and didn’t even know you yet and you came up to me at the intermission and said, “hey can I go sleep in your car?” I was like, “who the f**k is this guy, LOL!!!! Hey man, my car is your car now, LOL!  All good, keep I touch. Thanks

100lb. Incline Dumbbell Presses with Nick Ward by John Quinlan

I have been dieting & training for the past few weeks. I had an early morning weigh-in on an empty stomach right before this video was filmed. I was 188lbs. and at 5’9” and I feel fairly comfortable thus far along. I would like to personally thank Nick Ward for all his help, this guy is as strong as anybody I have ever seen and he is always there for me as one of the greatest spotters on Earth. I pressed the 100lb. dumbbells for 8 reps and was happy with that considering my strict diet and cardio regimen over the past couple of months. This video was filmed on March 14, 2013. Thanks everybody for all the love and support. 

God Bless

Early Morning Weigh-In on March 14, 2013 by John Quinlan

I have been dieting & training for a few weeks now and had an early morning weigh-in on an empty stomach. I very rarely weigh myself as I try and go by the mirror but every now and then I think it is a good thing to measure my overall progress. I came in at 188lbs. and at 5’9” I feel like I am doing alright so far. I have my first photo shoot of the year next week so I will see how everything goes. I will keep everybody posted. Thanks so much for all the support. 

God Bless

1st Model Progress Shot of 2013 by John Quinlan

So 2013 is finally here and I have been training for a few weeks now getting back in the swing of things. I still have a while to go before a show and the RT Convention so I feel I'm moving at my own pace which is cool with me. I do have a scheduled photo shoot March 22nd so I honestly feel I am right on track as to where I should be thus far along. Just have to fine tune some things as I go I guess and say a couple Hail Mary's that I can time things right, LOL!!!!! Just gonna keep pluggin' and see what happens here my friends :) Here is a basic progress shot taken with my cell phone this morning. No pump and the lighting in the room wasn't that good but I thought it would be a good idea just to measure basic progress. Thanks for the love and support. God Bless

OK SO HERE IS SOME GOOD NEWS FOR WRITERS AND AUTHORS OUT THERE SO PLEASE READ THIS UPDATE. I have new shoots coming up with book cover shots as one of the main themes. As far as all future images I have available coming soon, I have been in talks with cover artist Claudia Lucia McKinney who I regard as one of the greatest in the world who will be handling my images for those interested and also my boy Ross Maq who is one of the greatest graphic artists in the world. As I said this applies to ALL BRAND NEW IMAGES I HAVE DONE FROM THIS POINT FORWARD. So when my new images come back if there is a specific image you would like for a cover please let me know and something will be worked out with one of these amazing artists. All depends on what photo and details as far as who will want to pick it up but this is where I stand for the future. Here is an example of the work done by each of these super talents. The Vampire cover art is a sample by Claudia and the on stage competition poster was done up by Ross. I will be very selective from this point forward as to who purchases my new photos for covers. These super talented artists do have standards and they have fixed prices BUT you get what you pay for. If you decide to go with one of these artists the finished product will be tip top pure and simple.

Hey everybody, if you could check out this event to help out my good friend Vicki Stewart via Facebook it would be very much appreciated. Even the smallest donation would be so very much appreciated by this beautiful lady. Here is the direct link:

Event organizers are Kris Pittman, Eric Asher, Nick Santa Rosa, Brianne Whitmore & Vicki Stewart.

Direct Paypal Donation Link: 

OR Go Fund Me Site:
** Donated items will be auctioned off to the highest bidder HERE in the event. SEE INFO BELOW.**

Info on Vicki & the lymphoma she is battling:

This auction is being held to help Vicki & her family relocate and make it through the next few months as their landlord is selling their current home and they need to move asap.
Vicki has children living at home & is currently still unable to work outside the home, as she has horrible bouts with nausea & dizzy spells, however she still promotes authors & does reviews (Platinum Book Reviews) from her bedside to show her incredible love for the literary community and she love her indie authors to pieces!

Vicki was diagnosed with non-hodgkins b-cell follicular lymphoma in October of 2012 and went through 2 six week sessions of radiation, one of the sessions coinciding with a 6 week session of chemo & 1 eight week session of immunotherapy suppression & she is currently in Week 2 of the second six week session of immunotherapy suppression, as of now.
Lymph nodes targeted are on her left chest wall/under-arm area & the radiation was targeted directly to the area. The chemo was given in high doses as it was starting to spread to her liver but they pulled it back & have pronounced the radiation & chemo a near success and are doing the immunotherapy to remove the last aggressive traces of it..
