2022 Yamamoto Nutrition Pro Results
Andrea Muzi was another big name in the mix. In the early part of this year, he consistently competed in shows like 2022 Chicago Pro, 2022 Mr. Big Evolution Pro, 2022 Puerto Rico Pro, 2022 Toronto Pro Supershow, and 2022 IFBB California State Pro. He’s been in the top five in all of them. The challenge he had for Yamamoto Pro was a bit tougher, and he ended up placing third in the race.
Heading into this weekend’s show, Mohamed El Eman attracted attention due to his well-developed lower body. Specifically, his feathered quads stood out as one of his strongest attributes on stage.
