Johnnie Jackson

Here's a great shot of Johnnie by Paul Buceta.
Unfortunately, I had to crop it quite a bit because of overlay in the magazine layout.

Clipped!








Musclemag (January 2009) had some nice pix of these guys and more but there was so much overlay these were the best I could produce. They're pretty good anyway I think.
From top to bottom:

David Hughes (5'11", 235 lbs. contest weight)
Johnnie Jackson (5'8", 240 lbs. contest weight)
Mark Dugdale (5'6", 220 lbs. contest weight)

Happy Thanksgiving





"There is one day that is ours. There is one day
when all we Americans who are not self-made go back to the old home to eat
saleratus [baking soda] biscuits and marvel how much nearer to the porch
the old pump looks than it used to. Thanksgiving Day is the one day that is
purely American".

O. Henry
Well, not many of us may have a pump in the yard but we all have something for which to be thankful. Count your blessings and enjoy the holiday.
I don't know who this model is but he appears to have much to be thankful for in the physique department. Photos by Mark Royce.

Three for Sunday




The first is a scan of Vinny Galanti who, as I've said, is one of my favorites. Nice back.
Photo by Pavel Ythjall.
The second is of course Lee Priest. I don't know if it's old or new as I've read he sometimes wears makeup to hide his tribal markings. I suspect it's old.

The third is someone unknown to me but I thought he looked pretty good.

Big Sean Allan





"The many people who know Big Sean know I'm a good person and treat others the way they treat me. I'm not cocky or arrogant but I am very confident. That will never change. If people have a problem with that, it speaks of their own lack of confidence."

Junior Nationals: Super-Heavyweight & Overall
USA Championships: 9th, Super-Heavyweight
