Thirty-seven-year-old Ron Pena from Lake Worth, FL flexes backstage before taking the stage to compete in the Masters Men over 35 group during the Deke Warner's 2006 NPC Mid Florida Muscle Classic Bodybuilding, Fitness & Figure competition at Dr. Phillips High School. Bodybuilders back stage get ready by spraying on a dark tan, spraying on oil to define the body and lifting weights that also helps define the muscles. Pena said the heat lamps he is flexing in front of help bring out the veins. The day long competition featured categories such as Men's over 40, 50, 60, 70, women over 30, 40, novice men, teen men, teen figure and fitness and figure.
