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 quartet of Mr. Olympias and a pair of Jacksons.

The "So What?": Over the weekend, fresh off victories at the 2013 Olympia Weekend and the 2013 IFBB Arnold Classic Europe in Madrid, Spain, 3-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Phil Heath was the headlining guest-poser at the NPC Titans Grand Prix Bodybuilding Championships in Culver City, CA. At the NPC Central States Bodybuilding Championships in Belleville, Michigan, 4-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Jay Cutler was the featured guest-poser.

Two Jacksons promoted namesake contests. Four-time IFBB Pro Arnold Schwarzenegger Classic Championships Winner and 2008 Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Dexter Jackson hosted the NPC Dexter Jackson Memphis Classic Championships in Tennessee, where IFBB Pro Victor Martinez guest-posed. IFBB Pro Tricky Jackson hosted the NPC Tricky Jackson Classic Bodybuilding and Physique Championships in Lexington, Kentucky.

Eight-time Mr. Olympia IFBB Pro Ronnie Coleman hosted pro seminars at the Europa Games' Phoenix Pro Expo in Arizona. IFBB Pro Ben Pakulski made a meet-and-greet appearance in New York, where he reflected on his 2013 Arnold Classic 2nd place finish and skipping the 2013 Olympia Weekend. Meanwhile, on the international circuit, IFBB Pro Markus Ruhl, looking huge as always, attended the IFBB Prague Pro Bodybuilding Championships (an IFBB Pro Olympia Qualification Series contest) in the Czech Republic, where the veteran received the star treatment because he had been scarce on the bodybuilding scene as of late.

Andrew Oye's Verdict:
It's always nice to pump up my Pro Athletes Roundup with a report of news on the goods deeds front: 2011 Arnold Classic Europe Winner IFBB Pro Victor Martinez recently held his 3rd Annual Victor Martinez Fit For Autism event, a charity fitness challenge to raise money for research.
