Dave Palumbo Tribute Page
Dave Palumbo Picture
Dave Palumbo is a super heavyweight and he competed and came in 8th place at the super heavyweight division at the NPC championships in 1998, 1999 and 2000 always coming in a little heavier than he did the previous time. He is retired now but is still very involved in the bodybuilding and fitness industry.
He was born David Christopher Palumbo on February 17, 1968 in Manhattan, U.S. He stands 5'9 tall and has a competition weight of around 265 lbs. when he used to compete, which he no longer does. Dave Palumbo’s athletic beginning is extremely unusual for a bodybuilder as he started as a long distance runner, which he did throughout his youth and in college. But at the age of 22 Dave began to lift weights.
This changed everything and he was competing successfully within his first 6 months of training. At his first competition which was the 1990 NPC Natural in New York City he weighed only 168 lb. where he took 6th place in the middleweight class.
In only 5 years he won the 1995 NPC Junior USA Championships and turned professional in the IFBB. From 1995 to 2004, Palumbo attempted to turn pro on 16 different occasions at qualifying events but unfortunately never placed higher than runner-up position at the NPC Nationals and NPC USA Championships.
Today Palumbo is the innovator who started the very popular website RxMuscle.com which continues to gain a lot of respect in the bodybuilding community. Dave is also the owner as well as the president of Species Nutrition. Species Nutrition offers protein, fiber, fat loss, sleep-aid, and joint relief amongst its product lines.
