His first bodybuilding competition was the 2005 NPC Junior USA Championships. He finished in 8th place. At the NPC Junior National Championships that year, he improved and finished 4th.
At the 2007 NPC Arnold Amateur Bodybuilding, Roger came 1st. It was his first victory as an amateur. He went on to place 1st at the NPC Junior Nationals Bodybuilding. These results spurred him on and gave him the confidence he needed to continue his bodybuilding career.
He then went on to win the 2010 NPC National Bodybuilding. This result enabled him to receive the coveted IFBB Pro Card and participate in IFBB sanctioned bodybuilding shows. His dream of becoming a professional bodybuilder had been achieved.
He would go on to compete at the 212 Pro Bodybuilding division of the IFBB.
Roger entered his first professional competition at the 2010 IFBB Sacramento Pro. He only managed to finish in 15th place. The professional bodybuilding scene was far more competitive than amateur bodybuilding. He realized he had to modify his nutrition and routine to compete at the highest level effectively.
Roger competed at the 2012 IFBB Europa Supershow. He finished in 14th place. The next competition was the 2012 IFBB Muscle Heat where he finished in 14th place again. These lackluster results made Roger wonder if he was competing in the right division. He decided to take a break for a couple of years and focus on his full-time job and also to improving his physique. He felt that his body structure and aesthetics were better suited for the newly opened Classic Physique division and that he should compete in that division on his return.
In 2016, Roger marked his return to bodybuilding with a second place finish at the IFBB Hurricane Pro. At his next competition, the 2016 IFBB Baltimore, he won 2nd place. HE won 3rd place at the 2016 IFBB Mel Chancey Port Charlotte. These results were proof of his hard work and effort over the past few years. He had successfully managed to turn his career around and compete for the top spots at competitions.
At the 2017 IFBB Karina, he finished in 4th place. His next two competitions, however, didn’t perform very well. He only managed to finish 17th at the IFBB Pittsburgh Pro and 14th at the IFBB Toronto Pro Supershow. Yet, he qualified for the 2017 Mr. Olympia, the most prestigious bodybuilding competition in the world. He had achieved his goals of competing at the Olympia. Unfortunately, he only finished in 17th place at the Olympia.
Perhaps with better preparation and effort, he can finish in the top 10 at next year’s Olympia.
