Shoulder Training | 07.20.15


I love training shoulders! And today, I did more pressing movements than normal for no reason other than I really felt like hammering my shoulders; mission accomplished!

Kai Greene's Unforgettable Posing Routine [VIDEO]


There was a time in competitive bodybuilding, when the art of a finely choreographed posing routine was just as important as the competitor's muscle mass, symmetry, and definition! During the early years of the sport, pretty much all competitors took great pride in practicing their posing and showcasing a routine was both professional and theatrical-something that would make spectators marvel in amazement. Throughout the 70's, 80's, and 90's, a handful of bodybuilders made it their aim to bring polished posing routines to the stage; their transitions and stamina were seemingly effortless.

Back, Calves Training | 07.14.15


There are those days when training endlessly is just something that you want to do and today, back was on the menu for such training. I am not even really sure what all was done (until now since I can reflect), I just know that I was in the zone and busting my back down from every angle possible. Ummm...I will train calves in a couple of days because it wasn't gonna happen today LOL!

Arm Training | 07.03.15 [VIDEO]


When I train arms, instead of doing all bicep, then all triceps or vice versa, I like to go back and forth between the two body parts; this method provides me with tremendous pumps. I also shy away from using too much weight and opt to use moderate weight that allows me to train with volume with repetitions in the 15-25 range; this method also gives me great pumps which is a sign that whatever I am doing, is working!

Kevin Levrone: One of the Best To Never Do It!


Baltimore, Maryland's Kevin Levrone is my second favorite bodybuilder of all-time behind Flex Wheeler. When I began to follow bodybuilding as a teenager in the mid-90s, I would cut Kevin's pictures out of the FLEX and Muscle & Fitness magazines and hang them up on my bedroom walls. I was always in awe of his incredible size and shape; he was thick with huge round shoulders, a big wide back, full chest, a tight waist with deep cuts, massive legs, bowling ball arm thickness, and superstar charisma to cap it all of! And in a day when most competitors turn pro and then take one to three years before making a professional debut, Kevin's rookie season in 1992 saw him win three out of his five competitions and earn his first of four Mr. Olympia runner-up placings. Having won 23 contests in his 11-year career, Kevin is the second winningest professional bodybuilder behind 8-time Mr. Olympia Ronnie Coleman, which earned him a place in the IFBB Hall of Fame in 2009.

Leg Training | 06.25.15


I really put in some work on these wheels tonight; a lot of volume and instinctive training based on the equipment was available. Overall, it was an incredible session and I am satisfied with the work! Oh, because of my current training split, hamstring exercises are no longer included on leg day because I train them on the same day that I train chest.

Shoulders, Calves Training | 06.22.15


More volume work for shoulders today! I absolutely love training shoulders and because there are so many muscles in the shoulder region (including the traps and rhomboids), it gives me an excuse to beat them up from every angle and not feel like I am "overdoing it". I was scheduled to do abs today as well but opted to train calves instead-they need far more work than my abs anyway...hahaha! But as always, mission accomplished!
