December 15, 2010


IFBB Pro Bodybuilder and 2010 Tampa Pro winner Ben White took some time out of his preparation for the Flex Pro for a quick interview. With 10 weeks to go, Ben is dieting hard and looking for his second pro victory. FLEXONLINE will be checking in with Ben all the way up to the show: Look for some more interviews and even some training videos!

When The Showstopper gets going, five questions is far from enough, so we added five more for fun.

FLEX: What are your predictions for the Flex Pro?
Ben: My prediction is that I am going to win the Flex Pro. I’ve improved my legs, shoulders, chest, calves…actually my whole physique is new and improved! I expect to be between 245 and 250, bigger and harder than ever before.

FLEX: What has powerlifting done for you as a bodybuilder?

FLEX: I’ve seen you as big as 280 and still showing some nice cuts…what does the Showstopper eat to put on that size?
Ben: A lot of steak. Steak, more steak and rice along with tons of sleep. I also can’t forget my golden tea.
