At least, if you wanted to get in great shape you would pay very close attention. Luckily for you, even with his busy schedule, Andrew answered some questions thrown his way about his work in the gym.
1. What is your favorite bodypart to train? My favorite body part to train is chest. I love the feeling of my entire upper body swelling with blood, and there is something about training the chest that I just really enjoy. I also love training my back and legs as well, as they are certainly the most challenging.
2. Toughest workout you’ve ever had? There have been many, but I would say one of my leg workouts from the past few years. I honestly can not remember one that stood out above the rest, but getting dizzy, nauseous, winded, and lightheaded are the norm when I train legs now. It really takes a lot to push through the pain barrier and beyond with legs due to the large volume of muscle mass being worked and the extreme oxygen consumption that occurs from hardcore leg training.
3. Biggest accomplishment in bodybuilding? My biggest accomplishment in bodybuilding was in 2004, when I dieted down from around 12% bodyfat at 165 pounds down to 3% bodyfat at 146 pounds. I saw muscles and striations I never even knew existed. Even though I didn’t compete at the time, I was hooked. I knew I would go for that look again, but the next time with much more muscle mass. And it was the most difficult challenge I had ever faced in my life up to that point, both mentally and physically.
4. Favorite thing about bodybuilding? My favorite thing about bodybuilding is definitely the dieting process. As challenging as it is, when you see new muscles and shapes that were previoulsly invisible due to body fat, it is such a rewarding experience. Being able to pinch off your lower abs what most people pinch off the top of their hand is a one of a kind experience. And of course, the attention from the ladies certainly does not hurt.
If that doesn’t make you want to get in the best shape of your life or at least better shape than you’re currently in what will? The great thing about fitness is you’re in control of what you want to look like. It’s totally in your hands. The more effort you put into it, the better results you’ll get.
