Andrew Uhm: an Amateur Bodybuilder

Andrew Uhm was an amateur bodybuilder who fell in love with this sport when he was 16. He used to do endless pushups and chin-ups in his garage and enjoyed the pump he got. It also helped him perform better in other recreational sports he used to enjoy with his friends. His dad liked the fact that his son was actually doing something constructive and stayed away from bad company. So he got young Andrew his own multi-gym and dumbbells to help him train harder.

Andrew would not have stepped into competitive bodybuilding if it wasn’t for his coach David Weremay. He met David on a summer evening when he was doing freehand exercises in the neighborhood park. David noticed the dedication with which this young lad was training and asked him if he would like to train with him. It was later that Andrew Uhm realized that David Weremay trained amateur bodybuilders, and some of the professionals in this field were his trainees once.

Andrew Uhm showed great promise and his coach knew that he could be among the top amateurs of the state if he continued to work hard. He was planning to let Andrew participate in Junior men’s bodybuilding competition in light weight class as he had incredible definition and symmetry. Logan Wang was current champion in this weight category. Logan had started his training with David as a beginner but then he had left when a rival gym had offered him sponsorship. Though the disheartened coach had nothing against Logan, he still wanted Andrew should win the competition this time.

He planned a diet and exercise schedule for Andrew so that he would be muscular and ripped when he got on the stage with Logan Wang. Andrew was in peak form on the day of competition. He and Logan were in the top 7 finalists in their division. Andrew knew he had the best physique among the 7 but he knew that this alone will not let him win. David had told him that it was also important to impress the judges with immaculate posing. They had worked on his posing routine tirelessly, and it was time for him to implement what he had learned.

As luck would have it, after the 7 compulsory poses, judges called Andrew and Logan on stage for direct comparison of their physiques. Andrew Uhm knew he had to impress the judges with his free posing routine as they were nearly equal in the compulsory poses. He countered Logan’s front double biceps pose with a most muscular one, he had superior flexibility, so he did kneeling and lunging poses instead of just standing there and posing like Logan was doing. And it did pay. Andrew won the competition in his class, he was placed 4th in over-all weight class, but he was still happy and proud of his achievement. He knew that next year he would be bigger, muscular, and sharper, and the over-all trophy would be his.
