It takes a village to raise a child and I would say that’s also true when pursuing champion status. How strong is your support system? Who’s in your corner, win, lose or draw? Who’s there to pick you up to provide the motivation you need to keep going? It’s my nutritionist @therealtechnician , my trainer @psychofitness21 , my training partner @stanimal9 , my team & my family that loves me the most. They give me the strength and determination to achieve the ultimate.

One of the proudest moment of my life was last night winning the 2018 Mr Olympia. This moment was even more special because my family was on stage with me to celebrate with me. Through thick and thin, defeats, drain, tired pain and struggle, they are always by my side. This sport will break you at times. Your support system has to be strong day in day out. Seeing the look on my daughters face brings me to my knees. Watching tears of joy rolling down her cheeks makes my heart smile. Love my babes. Thank you for having my back loves. #fitfam#familyfirst#faith#love#laugh#live#thebestisyettocome#shawnrhoden#flexatron#wejustgettingstarted
How do you beat a man that has nothing to loose?. Who Doesn’t know how to quit? You can’t . Don’t ever stop believing in yourself. Don’t ever give up, never stop fighting. Fight until there is no more fight. -
