The Item: Career Updates, Special Appearances, Andrew Oye's IFBB Pro Athletes Roundup

The Scoop: Recently Reported: IFBB Pro League athletes had career updates or made recent guest appearances at various bodybuilding, physique and fitness events. The "Andrew Oye's Pro-Muscle Report" latest roundup includes a trio of pros running shows.

The "So What?": Over the weekend, while IFBB Pro Dennis Wolf was the featured guest-poser at the NPC Colorado State Championships and IFBB Pro Vinny Galanti  hit the stage at the NPC Clash at the Capstone Bodybuilding Classic in Tuscaloosa, AL, a slew of other pros staged their own events. Eight-time Ms. Olympia Lenda Murray hosted the NPC Lenda Murray Bodybuilding, Figure and Bikini Championships in Portsmouth, VA. Two-time IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Bodybuilding Championships Winner IFBB Pro Branch Warren hosted the NPC Branch Warren Classic in Spring, TX. In addition to bodybuilding, Warren's event included figure, physique, strongman and USAPL powerlifting contests. Two-time Ms. Figure Olympia Nicole Wilkins hosted the NPC Nicole Wilkins Fitness, Figure and Bikini Classic as part of the NPC Natural Michigan Bodybuilding Championships.

Andrew Oye's Verdict: IFBB Pro Denis Wolf has yet to compete in an IFBB Professional League bodybuilding contest in 2013, so, including his guest spot in Pittsburgh (with IFBB Pro Phil Heath, IFBB Pro Jay Cutler, IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson and IFBB Pro Flex Lewis), the Colorado appearance is only the second time U.S. fans have seen the German beast onstage this year. Luckily, Wolf's 1st place win at the 2012 Prague Pro Championships has already qualified him in the IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series Point System to compete at the 2013 Olympia Weekend in Las Vegas and contend with newcomer IFBB Pro Mamdouh Elssbiay, a.k.a. "Big Ramy."
