Shelby Starnes competes at the 2015 IFBB Wings of Strength Chicago Pro in the Men's 212 class. He'll be lining the stage with pro's Oliver Adzievski, Brad Davis, Guy Dacasse, Michael Ergas, Deik Farnsworth, Hunni Glanville, Darron Glenn, Tricky Jackson, Craig Licker, Freddie McCray, Kevin Ofurum, Craig Richardson, and Quincy Winklaar. Instead of pre-stage pics from the locker room or bedroom mirror, Shelby writes this on his Facebook page before he travels to Chicago:

I want to thank everyone for the kind words and well wishes as I head into this competition weekend.

I have a ton of amazing clients competing as well, and I'm grateful for every one of them, and grateful for their trust and hard work.

I'm grateful for everything that has come before now, to allow this weekend to happen. I'm grateful for my health, resources, and abilities.

I'm grateful for the opportunity to be here, and have a chance to give this my all.


Good luck from elitefts!
