• IFPA Pro Donavon Strong

    What made you get started in physique contest?
    I was approached by Yohnnie Shambouger and he encouraged me to participate in bodybuilding . Yohnnie Shambouger was the 1995 NPC Team Universe and World Champion Bodybuilder. To be approached and encouraged by him was an honor.

    Who are your role models?
    In Bodybuilding I look up to Skip LaCour. Everything I do in this sport is because I follow his methods and suggestions. From the Max OT style of training, to the way he markets himself, I try to follow his lead. He is also a great teacher. I try to share my knowledge, trials, and errors with friends and fellow competitors.

    What are your short/long term goals in this sport?
    My short term goal is to win the IFPA Yorton Cup and the PNBA Natural Olympia. My long term goal is to be considered one of the best Natural Bodybuilders in the world.
