“My interest in bodybuilding begin around 1979, during which time I would read every magazine and article I could find, in an effort to learn about training. My early workouts begin at school, progressed to a garage home gym, then to a local hometown gym.
After not placing in my first competition, I continued to research. I learned more about nutrition and how important it was for success in the sport. I came into my second competition (1987 Gaston Classic) at 137 lbs. @ 2.5% body fat and placed first out of five competitors in the Jr. Lightweights division. 1987-1990 I trained exclusively as a bodybuilder, meeting and attending seminars of several pro bodybuilders. I believe these years of education and training, laid the foundation for my success thus far as a powerlifter. I've competed in fifteen bodybuilding competitions and feel that experience contributes greatly to the overall conditioning I am able to achieve as a powerlifting competitor and is very valuable for staying in shape and maintaining good health" Rob Wess
