Juan Morel’s 2016 continues to get better thanks to a incredible showing last weekend at the Arnold Classic Brasil in Rio. “Diesel” finished second overall in the IFBB pro bodybuilding competition, improving upon his finish from a year ago, and giving winner Kai Greene a run for his money in the process. Morel, a Beast Sports-sponsored athlete, showed up in incredible condition, making constant improvements from his impressive sixth-place showing at the Arnold Classic Ohio less than a month ago. That was Morel’s first time competing at the Columbus, Ohio show and the experience proved to be a motivating one. He was quickly back in the gym following the placing in Ohio, vowing to present an even better physique in Brasil. Well, mission accomplished. Morel showed up in terrific shape while boasting impressive size. His back shots were one of the show-stealers, and Morel looked amazing from all angles. He has continued to show consistent improvements in just a short time in his IFBB pro career, a nod to Morel’s strong work ethic in the gym and discipline outside of it. In a previous post, Morel talked about the importance of preparation. With the improvements he’s made, and the peak condition he displayed last weekend in Brasil to earn second place, it’s obvious that Morel takes his preparation seriously. Next up for “Diesel” is the IFBB New York Pro, where Morel will look to defend his title at the highly-anticipated event.
