Abdominal Exercise

Model America™ Champion Mark Robinson shot with Ironman magazine yesterday in Los Angeles. The 5'10", 190 lbs., Australian trainer says, "I love this Abdominal Exercise, but it has to be done correctly." • Sit right on the very edge of the bench and position your hands behind you to maintain an approximate 45 degree back lean. • Keep you upper body dead still throughout the knee up movement! • Drop your feet to towards the ground, stopping them about an inch above the surface...pausing and then pulling the knees up slowly!

Off Season Diets

Keep it Simply

Musclemania® Classic Champion Julian Tanaka says, "When I'm in the off season, I like to keep it simply. I do fasting cardio for 30 minutes, simple carbs before training and complex carbs afterwards. I always try to eat small portions of protein, about 30 gm every 3 hours. It all works in keeping me lean all season."

Why Covered Up?

Musclemania® Pro Dez Carlo says, "I often get asked, 'Why do you wear hoodies often or keep covered up?' The majority of people know I enjoy keeping covered up while I train so that I don't focus too much on what I look like. Some people can get too caught up on what they look like that they will stare in the mirror for an hour and not even finish their workout correctly. It has always been something that worked for me and I only recently changed due to live feeds and making sure you all know exactly what I look like week to week. So remember Hoodie or not, the results will still be there."

Brandon’s Dieting Techniques

Musclemania® Junior Champion Brandon Flihan says, "I get questioned about dieting techniques all of the time. One of the biggest things I implement is counting my macronutrients. For over 4 years non stop I consistently tracked every gram of food that went into my body. Right now I'm eating a lot more than usual but for the first time in 4 years not tracking my macronutrients. With no plans to compete this year, I figure I'd give myself a breather. We will see how long this lasts, I kind of miss it. If I had to guess my macros for anyone curious right now, I'm around 400 carbs, 270 protein, 100 fat."

15 Years Transformation

Musclemania® Pro Simeon Panda says, "Facebook 2004, YouTube 2005, Instagram 2010, before the inception of social media, some of us really did #JustLift. So many people want to achieve great things in the fitness industry, it seems lucrative right? But what is your 'why?' For many of you this is hazy; as far as you're concerned, your favourite YouTubers are opening gyms or whizzing around in Ferraris and Lamborghini's, that's all the 'why' you need right? I can only speak for myself, but that was not my 'why' when I started training circa 2001. There was no Facebook, YouTube or Instagram, no influences, just a loud stereo, a collection of Tupac albums and a dumbbell. I picked up a dumbbell
