Enmanuel Rodriguez The Cuban Freak

2018 NPC National in Miami Enmanuel earned the IFBB Pro card in light heavy class.

I have been working out since I was 15 years old. I started taking it seriously in 2014 when a friend of mine said I should consider competing. That is really where my journey started.

Looking back on your early years, what parts were hard for you and what parts were easy?

It was difficult leaving my country at 12 years old. The culture shock I endured coming to the US- not knowing the language, the people or anything around me and leaving my family behind in Cuba made my early years very hard.

So far, nothing has been easy – everything I have, I’ve worked for.

How did you do in your first competitions?

I believe did well considering my body was getting used to the body building process.

When and where did you turn pro?

I turned pro in 2018 at NPC Miami Nationals in the light heavyweight class.

What was the key to your success?

The key to my success was to always keep in mind what I wanted – to become a pro. To me, it didn’t matter who doubted me, what obstacles I had to face or places I had to go, I always had my goal in mind.

How would you describe your training style and mentality?

My training style has always been hard, lifting heavy. I like using old school body builder’s techniques. My mentality is focused on growing more muscle, it is my therapy.

What advice would you give to beginners entering this lifestyle?

My advice is to never give up on yourself. Listen to your coach. Ad don’t change anything – if it’s not broken, don’t fix it.
