New Athletes: IFBB Pro Axel Alvarez and Ethan Valle

Hi, STRENGTHNET Members! I hope you are all enjoying the new site. I’ve been working hard on getting new content posted quickly. Anyway, several new athletes have been introduced since launch day, September 12, 2016.

IFBB Pro Axel Alvarez


IFBB Pro Axel Alvarez is a Marine turned IFBB Professional Classic Physique athlete. Originally, Axel competed in Men’s Physique, but quickly switched to Classic Physique as soon as the new division was introduced. I’d also like to thanks Axel for his service to the country.

Ethan Valle


Ethan Valle is an up-and-coming bodybuilder from the Bronx in New York City. He is a boxer turned bodybuilder, and he is going to be a real beast if he keeps going where he’s going. His arms are 20 inches, and he’s getting bigger and stronger every day.
