Call Joe or Bill at Olympic in Southaven. They should be able to put you with other BB in the area.

Yep. Joe is the owner and Bill is the manager. Joe is notorious in the area for a number of things as well as killer workouts. He is currently working with Chris Caudy, prepping him for a show and was a world class power lifter in his time. Bill is a knowledgeable BB and very helpful.
I've heard the DAC is wwwwaaaaayyyyyy too froo froo for the serious BB or lifter. And too expensive!
Check out some of the nutritional outlets for contacts as well.

Wasnt it Chris who promoted the tunica BB show
If so I saw him at tunica and at the memphis show
that was pathetic. Went up to Nashville to a show in June, that was the best in the region. The one in Jackson MS, was more of a christian revial than a BB contest. But this part of the south has never been much into BB, more cigaretts, and pork rines LOL. At the gym the guys who want to get big, seem to want to get FAT, I guess being big now matter what to some is what its about. Few
sculpt muscle. Well thanks for the info bud

I think Chris did a guest pose at some Jackson show a few weeks ago. Don't really know about the Tunica show. There seemed like a lot of people trying to get into the novice part of the Tunica show early and backed out the closer it got. The bench meet they were supposed to have in Tunica this past weekend was dropped and supposed to reschedule, but that would be more of a powerlifter deal. I would still try to call and talk to Joe. He knows everybody and anybody in the muscle business in the area. True BB are hard to come by in this area. I seem to run into more powerlifters.

I used to work at DAC and they are too expensive now that I have changed jobs and need a regular membership. I called Olympic on Goodman and got a good quote. I am wondering how the club stacks up and if members are happy there.

That's what sucks, i live downtown and would like to get on an intense training schedule, but no one seems to be serious around here. I just workout at my school gym until I can find the right place in town to start training. Right now I'm just working on bulking and getting my diet tunned.
