Besides having one semester of weight training in high school…. I started lifting on January 7th 2010 at the age of 24
Not paying attention to my whole physique for the first 6 months
Stay lean year round so I always see improvement, it really keeps the fire burning
The Men’s Physique is a great addition to the NPC for the guys who just want an aesthetic look. Being in shape isn’t all about being super huge. Also making the look achievable for the average male.
As lame as it sounds I’m proud of the gains I’ve made naturally in such a short time from a great diet and non-stop motivation. Top 5 Finalist in the 2011 Fitbody finals for bodybuilding.com
One hour and 45 minutes
8-12 most days
I’ll have heavy days where I wont go over 5 reps to shock my body
So I’ve been doing my best at following the level 2 program in the Arnold book and it’s working out great. Most people would call it over training but I’ve had no problems handling it really. Although I do change a few things round.
Workout 1 – Chest-upper concentration, Back, Legs-quads concentration
Workout 2 - Shoulder, Lower Back, Arms-Triceps concentration
Workout 1 – Chest-decline concentration, Back, Legs-hammies concentration
Workout 2 - Shoulder, Lower Back, Arms- Bicep concentration
Workout 1 – Body weight day, cardio of some sort
Workout 2 - Shoulder, Lower Back, Arms
Fish, Veggies, oats, chicken, ground turkey. Carbs before midday
I have a cheat day that I deal with all of those issues ☺
There is an Arnold video that always pops in my head when I feel like giving up.
Ben Booker, Greg Pitt…. can you say motivation, Arnold of course, such an aesthetic look, he’s not all bulky like todays big fella’s
To just keep up what I’m doing and become a Men’s Physique pro cardholder.
Stay healthy and natural!
