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.

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!

Supplement Review: EVLUTION NUTRITION Performance Stack

First let me say that I am not sponsored by EVLUTION NUTRITION and I do not endorse their company. This is simply an honest review from my personal use just like my Infinite Labs Joint Support review I did about a month back. Now on to the meat of this post!

Back, Abs Training | 06.16.15

OK, so I was actually supposed to train shoulders and abs today but I got things mixed up-this is a new schedule that I am trying to get used to. So instead of shoulders, I did back and abs (of course). It was another sweaty training session; I'm talking soaked shirt, hand towel, and wrist straps and mannn was I winded-felt like someone swift kicked me in the chest a few times today. I killed it though, so as always, mission accomplished!

Leg Training | 06.15.15

I was a bit "out of it" earlier tonight when I entered the gym and I thought the 20 minutes of cardio on the treadmill would help me get into the "zone" but it didn't work, so when the time came for my training to start, I just put my head down and winged it. I am still pretty impressed by the intensity of my training-it was sweaty, heart-pounding, and head-pounding, so amidst how I was feeling, I still managed to have an appreciable training session. Sometimes it's like that-good days and bad days but in the end, mission accomplished!
