At the 2009 Emerald Cup, I estimated Mark's weight to be about 215-220 pounds. I may be off, but competing in the 202lbs and under is something new for Mark. If I remember correctly, Mark said he would not compete in the 202lbs and under competition in the past? Why the change?
I still don't get how Mark can train and get in such great shape, with three beautiful kids and a lovely wife and a full time job. I am quite impressed.
What is Mark's motivation for competing and being in shape?
As for the Swimsuit issue, I saw it last week, and it is smoking... Some of the hottest competitors in the figure and fitness world, up in the snow mountains of Big Bear, California, and in the jacuzzi.
Beleive it or not, these photoshoots are not cheap, with the cost of flying in, hotels, food, lights, photographer, can be $40,000, even more. But you get the best pics out there, plus some hot video soon
