2001 IFBB IRONMAN PRO INVITATIONAL PUMP ROOM
This prestigious event was held in the superb Redondo Beach Performing Arts Centre in front of a sell-out crowd. John Balik's Iron Man Pro Show kicked off the 2001 season with 24 fantastic competitors.
King Kamali said he would come into his first pro contest big and strong, and strong he did, scaring even the toughest around. However in the end, Chris Cormier repeated as champion of the first pro show of the year.
"THE DVD INCLUDES GREAT HIGHLIGHTS FROM OUR CLOSEUP CAMERA!"
We film every Iron Man event with 2 broadcast cameras.
You will see pump room highlights from both our cameras. Then we show, using the front central camera, the individual compulsory poses for the top 10 guys - a lesson for all competitors on how to really do these poses!! This is how the judges get to see and analyse each competitor's strengths and weaknesses.
Next the side stage front camera takes over showing superb CLOSEUP posing routines from the top 5 competitors, namely, CORMIER, ANTHONY, KAMALI, DAWODU and TITUS.
Also includes the final posedown - IN MIND-BLOWING CLOSEUP!!
The DVD ends with the impromptu posing on stage of JAY CUTLER, future Mr Olympia!
