Nathaniel Hampton

How and when did you start training?

I started getting serious about training when I was 20, I was getting ready for my first MMA fight.

What obstacles have you come across whilst reaching for your goals?

I had 3 botched surgeries in a row a few years ago which resulted in all of my internal organs shutting down, and I no longer have small intestines.

So getting and staying in shape is significantly tougher for me than most people.

Nathaniel Hampton scr1.jpg

How did you over come this/these obstacles?

I never took no for an answer. If doctors told me I couldn’t or shouldn’t be able to reach a goal, I would just stay up all night researching as much as I can to  find a way to reach my goals. Now that I’ve gained 100lbs without intestines I think it’s safe to say I proved all the doctors wrong.

What advice would you give to someone struggling to get motivated to get to the gym?

Remember that someday your life can depend on it. 

What does your workout routine like?

I typically stick with heavy compound lifts to start off each session, then finish off with moderate weight for a lot of volume for isolated work.

Nathaniel Hampton quote image 1.jpg

What does your nutrition consist of?

Because of the nutrient malabsorption I have it is crucial for me to maintain an extremely high calorie diet. Mainly high carbs, because I absorb less than 20% of the carbohydrates I consume.

So roughly 10,000 calories a day just to maintain my body weight.

How far ahead do you plan your nutrition and training if at all?

For me, I really need to feel how my body is handling/responding to the food I just consumed so I really need to choose what I eat on the fly. For training I stick with a 5 day split. Legs/Calves/Biceps, Chest/Abs/Triceps, Back/Biceps/Calves, Shoulders/triceps/Abs, and Rest Day

Who in the fitness industry inspires you?

Furious Pete for sure, like me he has had his share of medical set backs and is still making great progress.

And Stefi Cohen, because she is a physical therapist, and I now have so much respect for physical therapists because I wouldn’t even be walking right now if it wasn’t for them. Plus she is showing people that you can be a power lifter and still have a physique that looks good. 

What supplements do you use if any?

I really don’t use many supplements, but for now I am in love with Beyond Raw’s Lit preworkout

What 3 tips would you give to anyone wanting to get CutAndJacked and achieve their best physique?

  1. Patience is most important, Rome wasn’t built in a day.
     
  2. Rest is equally important as training, you can’t expect to perform optimally if you aren't feeling well rested. It’s fine if you have to take a day off for an extra day of sleep if you didn’t sleep well the night before. This goes hand in hand with patience.
     
  3. And lastly don’t be afraid to do your own research. Just because somebody says something will make you stronger on the internet doesn’t mean it’s true. Do your own research then make up your mind if you want to give something a try.

When did you get started training?

It all started as a New Year’s Resolution and a bet. Now here I am years later still winning that bet!

How do you stay motivated to reach your goals?

Honestly, I have had had ups and downs with motivation, but what keeps me motivated now is my passion and drive to be a powerful athlete someday. I love the feeling of moving iron all while working off stress and anxiety I sometimes get. 

Victoria Hampton scr2.jpg

Do you do cardio? If so what types of cardio
have worked best for you?

No cardio for me right now! Maybe going on a walk with my husband and our two pups, but nothing too strenuous.

When I do cardio for a competition prep I prefer the stair climber or windmill sprints to keep the booty lifted!

Do you meal prep?
If so do you have a favourite healthy recipe? 

During bulking season I’m way more flexible with my eating, so no real prepping. 

During a cut for a show I do meal prep and found that on my last prep I really enjoyed cooked spaghetti squash and would throw cooked ground turkey with some light marinara sauce on there!

Victoria Hampton scr3.jpg

What does your nutrition consist of?

Currently my nutrition consists of high amounts of carbs and calories because I’m looking to bring up my numbers in bench press, squats, and deadlifts for a powerlifting meet.

Do you listen to music whilst you train?
If so what’s on your playlist at the moment?

My playlist currently consists of old rock, like Dokken, or some newer rock like Avenged Sevenfold and Korn!

Victoria Hampton scr4.jpg

What is your training routine like?

I just started with a powerlifting coach and so I typically train 5-6x/wk, mainly focusing on the 3 powerlifting lifts along with accessory work, like hamstrings and glutes.

What are your short and long-term gym related goals?

My short term goal is to compete in a powerlifting meet, but my long term goal is to deadlift 450lbs or more!

Victoria Hampton scr5.jpg

Have you come across any obstacles whilst striving towards your fitness goals?
If so how did you move past those obstacles?

I suffer from depression which makes it harder on some days when I’m in “those moods.” I’ve combated this by taking time to meditate and keep a list on my phone of why I have certain goals to remind myself to keep trying to better myself.

Who are your top three favourite athletes
or fitness models?

My first athlete is Stefi Cohen. She’s a beast at powerlifting and shows you can still look amazing while moving heavy weight!

Dana Linn Bailey comes in at a close second and she was the first athlete who inspired me to get into Figure bodybuilding.

Lastly, Larry Wheels because he proves you can compete in both the bodybuilding world and powerlifting world.

Victoria Hampton scr6.jpg

What supplements do you use, if any?

At this moment I literally only drink Bang Energy drinks as a “supplement” for my preworkout. Here and there I’ll have Quest protein cookies, but that’s it.

What 3 tips would you give to anyone wanting to achieve their best physique?

1st tip would be to understand your body structure, so for instance I have narrow hips so I “build an illusion” of having wider hips through certain exercises.

2nd tip would be to build a ground of strength, mainly because I firmly believe in order to build, you need some sort of strength to be able to move adequate weight.

3rd tip is that in order to transform yourself you must learn about yourself and to learn to love where you are currently at and through each phase of your journey.

5 Biggest Mistakes When Trying


To Build Muscle by James Alexander Ellis

biggest_muscle_building_mistakes_james_alexander_ellis_scr1.jpg

1. Eating "blindly" 

If you aren't tracking your calorie input somehow, then how do you know if you're eating a surplus of calories each day? You need bricks to build a house. Think yourself lucky you're able to eat lots!

2. Sticking to 3 Sets of 10

Yeah - you read this in fitness/bodybuiding magazines but rep range is the loading parameter that should be varied most often! To fully stimulate fast and slow twitch fibres, 10 reps won't cut it after a few weeks sorry.

3. Missing Time Under Tension 

Yes it hurts. Yes it's a major stimulus to muscle building. No you can't just bash out your reps. Consider using sets of at least 40s length to really create a hypertrophic response!

biggest_muscle_building_mistakes_james_alexander_ellis_scr2.jpg

4. Resting inconsistently 

Time your rest periods and stick to a predetermined time. You'll never know if that extra couple of reps was genuinely increased strength or just because you had a bit more time chatting. Measure and manage!

5. Ignoring Recovery 

Did you know you build and repair muscle when you're resting? Most of us simply won't get enough recovery time if we train 7 days a week (especially with the reduced sleeping hours so many of us suffer from!)
