Bikini newcomer Sandee Cheeks Estes steps into the spotlight for this edition of Flex Friday, posing in pics from her fantastic debut shoot at this year’s Arnold. The adorable and fierce 23-year-old Ohio native competed in the Arnold Amateur bikini category and proved the results of her first show — which she won back in 2013 — were no fluke by scoring a top six finish in a stacked class of local and international standouts. If she’s anything like these latest pics in time for the national stage, Sandee’s bridge to the pros might be a decidedly short one.
Prepare to be captivated by the sensational, shapely Mary Marji, one of the all-time great finds of the recent Arnold Sports Festival. After securing a top six finish in her class in Columbus, the stunningly beautiful figure girl out of Syracuse, N.Y. proved she’s one to keep a close eye on this season. Nicknamed “The Machine,” she’s possibly one of the strongest competitors in the division and shows enough muscle during her tremendous debut shoot to back up the claim. Once the curvy brunette hardbody captures you with those gorgeous eyes, she turns things over to those bulging, impressively peaked biceps and you’re under her spell. It’s lights out from there.
Today we rewind back to 2015 and this shoot with superstar
IFBB pro Jacklyn Abrams. The charming and beautiful
“Musclebarbie” won her pro card initially as a fitness competitor
and then added some awesome size and shape, which she
displays here, in shifting to the women’s physique division.
Recently, she competed for the first time as a figure competitor
at the Hawaii Pro, proving to be quite the Jacklyn of all trades. Sun and surf plus a gorgeous muscle girl for this edition of Throwback Thursday.
The remarkable Northwest superstar Cinzia Clapp is back and it’s an impressive encore long in the making as she made her debut on our site around eight years ago. In those days, the Alaska native was a fitness phenom well on her way to winning an IFBB pro card and establishing herself as a standout in the division. Today, she’s shifted attention to the women’s physique class and as the images from her new shoot at the recent Arnold — where she competed in the Physique International — clearly show, Cinzia has upped her game in a big way. It adds up to a Flex Friday showcase with gorgeous looks, boulder shoulders and bicep peaks.
We’ve added another impressive Canadian competitor to our roster with the Northwest hardbody Kristen Mulligan, shown here in pics from her debut shoot at the Arnold Supershow earlier this month. Last year’s overall champ in the masters figure category at the British Columbia Finals in her home province, Kristen took the stage in the amateur figure division and secured a top five finish out in Columbus. No small feat, considering the Arnold show always boasts some of the finest competition anywhere. Our Flex Friday pick of the week sports a chiseled physique with outstanding highlights in the back, shoulder, chest and traps department. Kristen is one to watch this season for sure.
What a treat this year’s Arnold show was for adding new talent to the roster and today’s Flex Friday spotlight girl, the incredible Diana Schnaidt, is part of the fun you’ll be seeing for weeks to come. The former figure competitor is now bringing her stunning look to the professional physique division and talk about a total package — peaked biceps, rippling abs, detailed quads, razor-sharp calves — the bulging and beautiful Diana pretty much has it all, plus a healthy dose of fierce confidence to boot.
