So, after a very controversial Pittsburgh Pro showing by Shawn Rhoden, the defending Mr. Olympia champion spoke out regarding all of the criticism he’s been overwhelmed with. Rhoden was interviewed by Frank Sepe for NPC News Online and he explained how he takes time off after a show for his well being and his family.
But he says that just because he’s the Mr. Olympia everyone is bashing him but he also explained that he’s got to do what’s best for his health, and referenced the bodybuilders who have passed away recently. And a lot of bodybuilders develop health issues because of the strenuous lifestyle if there’s no break in between shows.
But Rhoden had the biggest comeback of all for the haters at 5:03 of the interview…
“For all you guys that are talking trash about me, how many Mr. Olympias are there“.
“So, until you guys are able to walk in my yourself in my shoes… size eleven and a half, and go through what I go through on a daily basis to prep myself to compete in the best league ever ‘the IFBB Pro League’ please continue to judge me in May and in September.”
