Florida natty Gabriel Valantino(R) says, "This is the first year my younger brother Eli Valantino is working out with a consistent diet. He’s noticing tons of what I call “Newbie Gains” and it’s really motivating him to keep pushing harder everyday. My best advice for him was to make sure he’s eating in a calorie surplus and lifting with correct form. For most beginners you want to leave the ego at the door while training everyday."

At 5'9", 180 lbs., 22 years old and lifetime natty, Gabriel will compete at Musclemania® Universe in Miami in June, his first competition.
