branch warren australian pro arnold classic

When the 2012 Arnold Invite list came out, no one was surprised to see Branch Warren’s name on the list, but many were wondering if he was really planning on actually doing the show after suffering a leg injury last summer.

Branch further surprised the doubters today when it was announced that not only will he compete at the Arnold, he will also compete the following week at the Australian Pro.

Branch says, “My leg is completely healed and my prep is going very well. In fact, I'm ahead of schedule. I'm not just going to be good, I'm going to be better than last time. Failure is not an option. I’m looking I'm looking forward to the show.”

The Australian Pro show is one week out from the Arnold.

“You know, I’ve got a lot of friends in Australia. When Tony Doherty very graciously extended the invitation, I was glad to accept,” Warren said.

Of course, Warren is not one to give less than his all. He won’t be there to just do the show and leave. “I’ll be staying the week in Australia. I’ll have a seminar on Sunday as well as some other appearances while I’m there. When we get it all nailed down, I’ll announce it on MD.”

The "Texas Rattlesnake" has no intentions of letting someone take the Arnold title from him. He’s been hard at work for weeks now and anxious to show his fans and doubters that he is not a one hit wonder adding, “I’d just like to say thanks for all the E-mails and messages of support while I was down. I will not disappoint you.”
