    Default Muscles on the Strip: Las Vegas Gearing Up for Olympia Weekend

    In September, Las Vegas will once again turn into bodybuilding central when Joe Weider's Olympia Fitness & Performance Weekend rolls into town on September 16, 2016.
    The highlight of the event will, of course, be the 2016 Mr. Olympia contest. Phil Heath, who captured his 5th straight title last year in a heated contest against Dexter Jackson, Shawn Rhoden, and Dennis Wolf, is again one of the top favorites. He’s going to have to step things up a notch this year, though, as all three men have once again come to challenge him for the crown.
    Aside from Mr. Olympia, the 2016 Olympia Weekend will also see the second Wings of Strength Rising Phoenix World Championships. The event has taken up the mantle of the world’s most prestigious female bodybuilding event following the demise of the Ms. Olympia event in 2014.
    The most amazing male and female powerlifters from all over the world will also descend on Las Vegas during the Olympia Weekend for the 2016 Olympia Pro Powerlifting Championships. Spectators will get to see up close how the pros get ready for battle at the event’s popular open-warm up area.
    The Strongman Corporation is also coming back to the Olympia Weekend for the 7th time in a row, bringing with it events such as America's Strongest Masters and the North American Strongman Master Championships. The popular TV show American Ninja Warrior will also open up its gruelling gauntlet to the public for a once in a lifetime experience.
