Welcome once more to second issue for March 2005 of Hardfitness Online Magazine a source devoted to female competitors. Most people probably don't read the editorial in most magazines because it's mostly news and tidbits that aren't exactly important information regarding the content in this magazine.

But anyway I would like to thanks all the girls who helped me out again for this issue and everyone else with their support. Thanks mostly to for their support during last year and this coming year. Also thanks to my new sponsor Myochem. Who will hopefully be working more with me and planning on doing some sponsorships to selected athletes. Will also be running cover model searches and many fun things that will help the athlete. So keep an eye on this section for special news (hopefully it will make you read the editorial).

The 2005 Ironman was the first show I covered this year and was a good show despite the rain in Pasadena. I wasn't happy in my opinion with the outcome of the results. I try to keep my reviews as objective as possible but it's hard when obvious winners like Abby Eyre don't win their class. It's just very frustrating not knowing what judges are looking for that particular day. If the competitor is local why should she have the advantage over someone from another state? It shouldn't be like sports games when a local team has more support than the visiting team. Many times out of state girls come in better condition than local ones. I consider Figure should be about symmetry, muscle tone and overall presentation. This includes posing, hair, suits and believe it or not good looks! Muscularity should be rewarded as long as it's symmetric. We luckily don't have figure girls with huge GH stomachs like some of the men. Speaking of... men's bodybuilding should be also rewarded on aesthetics a guy like David Henry just looks great. I'd love to look like him but not like those huge mass monsters that sport unreal and crazy bodyparts. That to me is excessive and don't look good, but the again it's just my opinion.

On other news we will hopefully have some anonymous contributors about female steroids. I probably have stirred up things on some forum or some people's paranoid minds in asking for such information. But this only means those people are abusing it and using it and are afraid to get caught. Maybe they don't know me if they did they'd find out their info is totally safe and I am also a person to trust. But then if they don't trust me they just don't trust me and there is nothing I can do. I will try to include as many dosages and names of substances as possible and also what changes made to their bodies after a number of cycles. I have chosen to include this type of info since I know the usage of "gear" proliferates in many competitive federations. And I like to keep things real, that's why this online publication is correctly called Hard Fitness and not Soft Fitness. And besides freedom of speech is one of the amendments.

I also want to wish luck to Jenny Lynn who just signed up a multi-year contract with Muscletech. It about time we see in Musclemag some more photos of Jenny. She is the real deal, she has muscles unlike some of the past muscletech girls. And besides she is from Alamo, CA close to where I live and she is a sweetheart despite being one of the top competitors.

A big shout out goes for the Arizona girls who competed at the 2005 Ironman, Andrea Dumon and Jennifer Ralph. I just met them outside the finals in the hallway and just started talking. Next thing I knew I was going dancing with all of them and their friends and husbands to the Arguile in L.A. in a big limo! (I owe you guys some $$$) It was fun but damn I was tired from the whole day. Thanks to Megan who kept up with my terrible dancing skills. I was just really tired and sleepy maybe next time i'll do better. Ernie Villegas trains all these girls and he does a damn good job with their symmetry, muscularity and conditioning. I don't know what it is from Arizona that all these girls are great looking and with awesome physiques and nice attitudes.
