King Kamali started lifting weights around 1986, his sophomore year in High School. He wanted to strengthen up for gymnastics and also look good for the girls (it worked on both aspects). HeI was always a fan of bodybuilding from day one and was fascinated with the muscular look. It was mind blowing to see how massive the pro’s were. To him it was an impossible dream to even come close to these super humans, so as a result his first two years of weight training were not taken seriously. He drank a lot of beer, partied every night of the week, did not follow any type of diet, and his training was off and on. Even with all of these negative influences his body was responding to the weights. He just kept getting bigger and better every month. So, when he graduated from High School, he decided to join the local gym, IRONWORKS. Here is where he met his mentor, Mr. DC James Bryant. This man pulled him aside and took him under his wing. He showed him how to train properly, eat correctly and stop all of the partying he was so accustomed to. He gave him confidence, not just in bodybuilding but life as a whole. He was now ready to compete.
So He started my journey to the Pro ranks. He knew deep down in my heart that if I gave 100% to the sport, he would one day achieve my dream of becoming a professional bodybuilder. In a span of 10 years as an amateur competitor, he overcame many obstacles: injuries, full time college schedule, disapproving parents, insane girlfriends, lack of funds and sponsors, and last but not least the constant barrage of doubters who found it necessary to remind me everyday that I would fail and had no chance of becoming anything in this sport. But the interesting thing is that these idiots who constantly put him down did not realize that the more they hounded me the more dedicated he got. These morons kept adding fuel to my fire; every time they opened their mouth, he just kept getting bigger and better. Well to make a long story short they all walk around with their heads down every time they see him and most have done nothing with their lives. It goes to prove the old saying : “What goes around comes around”, and did it ever!
Now that he has achieved pro status in the IFBB, it’s time to go back into the oven and come back and shock the world. Competitively , he will take the 2000 season off . In his mind he’s not ready to compete as a pro yet. You see, he don’t like losing, and second place sucks! He wants to win, and both himself and hisy good friend and trainer Mr. Chad Nicholls have put together a master plan for 2001. They are going to stun a lot of people with a crazy freaky package of symmetry, muscularity, and out of this world posing. The next time he steps on a competitive stage, he will be a nasty 250+ pounds ripped beyond comparison. It’s time to chop some heads in the IFBB and I am coming for every single on of them!
