Robert Burneika

 

I was born and raised in Lithuania living with my parents and older brother. I learned how to work hard from my father who I always helped out in his auto body shop. I worked with him and realized that this is not the life that I wanted for myself. As a child watching Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movies, made me be fascinated with the idea of becoming a bodybuilder.
At 14 years old I was introduced to “the gym”, which I made in my attic above the garage. At age 18, I started going to a real gym, which now I would call “my home”. At age 19, I entered my first bodybuilding contest, the Lithuanian Championships in which I took 5th place. From there on out, I knew that this was something I wanted to do.

I was always a strong guy, so I also decided to compete in power lifting. At the age of twenty I entered a bench press contest, in which I benched 405 lbs.

When I turned 21 I had the opportunity to come to the States and I took it. I came to Connecticut, where I continued to work out. I took a brake from competing, so I could build a better physique.

In 2005, I started to compete in Strongman competitions in New England. Things were going well, however in end of 2006 I decided this is not want I want to do, and I went back to bodybuilding, my true passion. In my first shows I got qualified for the nationals. However, I could not go compete on a national level because I was not a US citizen. I lived in Connecticut until November 2008, and then my wife and I  moved to Las Vegas, NV, where we currently live.

The USA Bodybuilding Championships in 2008 was my first time on a  national level stage, were I finished 7th from 28 guys in the super heavy weight division. In 5 weeks I decided to do the North Americans in Ohio and I placed 6th. Competing in these shows was a good experience. In 2009, I came back to the USA’s and placed 3rd. The same year at the NPC Nationals was runner up. Finally in October 2010 I achieved my goal in bodybuilding: became IFBB PRO.
