My child hood mentor Gus Handke taught my how to squat, bench and dead lift. After two weeks of training I was able to bench 115lbs and deadlift 300lbs. I was twelve years old and hooked for life.
I would have to say I over trained quite a bit. I use to workout 6 days a week doing two muscle groups a day! I like working hard. By the time I was 19 I learned to execute one muscle group per day I started making bigger gains. On top of that I would have to say early on my nutrition sucked! I relied heavily on my workouts and genetics. Like everyone, I couldn't figure out how to get whole foods to work for me. That has made all of the difference in the world!
I love getting pumped! It is the best feeling in the world. It gets me high. I get so use to feeling it all the time when I miss a day of training I feel like I am missing something. I know that when I get pumped it is at that time I am able to shape my body like a sculpture or and artist. My Physique is my life's work. I think about it all the time.
I honestly feel like this new division was made for me. I stand over six and half feet tall and I feel I am able to exhibit how great a man of large stature can look from an aesthetic perspective. Working so hard to be my best I have realized there is nothing more aesthetically pleasing than the NATURAL body and all of its grace when it’s in top physical shape. Soon this class will be the most desirable look worldwide.
At one given time about 1-2 hours. Any more time than that is a waste. If you are training hard you can't do it for longer than that at one time.
It greatly depends on the muscle group, my training phase and workout split. I train legs typically high reps 12-25 for the most part but every so often I have to do sets of five real heavy to make my muscles remember how to push. My back I like 8-12 most of the time, shoulders I respond best to high reps, Arms I go as heavy as I can, chest lots of pyramid work.
This is my current split:
I switch it up from starting with thickness or width each time.
I will do an hour of posing
6:45 am workout: explosive conditioning same as Monday
5:30pm workout: Arms, Calves, Abs
I start with which ever part of my arm needs more work. Since my arms are well balanced I just switch it up.
I eat the same year round. I live on "A Supernatural Lifestyle." my weight only fluctuates a few pounds all year. To get in peak condition I take out a couple pieces of fruit, boost my protein to 350 - 400 and make sure I nail all of the times I am suppose to eat. Nutrient timing is incredibly critical for a natural athlete. This makes me hard as a rock.
My big secret is Eat whole foods, don’t mix sugars and fats, and time your nutrients. That’s all you really have to do. If you want to find out more check out my book "A Supernatural Lifestyle" at supernaturalphysiques.com
I honestly don’t usually have any. If I do that means my body is trying to maintain homeostasis so I feed it what it asks for. I stay away from destructive catabolic metabolisms, even while I compete. If I need something sweet I just eat some fruit.
I always say in my head, "Aaron, you know all the reps in front of this one didn’t matter, this is the one that makes you better. Stay with me Aaron!! This is what makes you a champion!!!"
Works every time...
Arnold Schwarzenegger, Frank Zane. I want to look like to best of both of them.
Get my Pro card in Men's Physique Class at USA's in July.
