Before he was Mr Olympia he was an up and coming bodybuilder with a dream. Hope is a powerful thing & if you’ve followed Shawn Rhoden career, you’ll know he’s had his share of ups and downs during his career. I’m happy to say I saw his coming out party as a teenager when he won every overall title , teenage, novice & Open at Bob Bonham Eastern Natural Classic . Now he’s Mr Olympia. He is the leadership change this sport needed because he better represents the dreamers who have aspirations but need to understand it’s a long hard journey one can never give up on.

Turn back Tuesday: Lisa Tannembaum 51 @The Lou Ferrigno Classic 2014

The rebound is just as much a part of prep as the contest itself. I’ve seen too many competitors who look great the day of the show only to be fat & overweight 3 months later. The first 8 weeks post contest are critical to a successful rebound. This is Big E @qualitymuscle post Southern States sitting at 230lb after being 210lb day of the show.

Train properly & dieted down to perfection, the back is a very impressive body part. It’s also an indicator of the skill of the lifter. How well do you pull and where from. Trained eyes know. @hrt__technician @k3llisanderspl

DRAMATIC TRANSFORMATIONS: THE PHOTO ON THE LEFT WAS TAKEN 4WKS AGO. THE PHOTO ON THE RIGHT WAS TAKEN YESTERDAY. IT IS BELIEVED ONE CANNOT BUILD A BODY DURING CONTEST PREP. THIS IS TRUE IF ONE IS DOING HIGH VOLUME CARDIO, NO CARB, LOW CALORIE DIETING. ONCE BODYFAT REACHES CONTEST LEVELS, IT IS BETTER TO INCREASE INTENSITY AND FREQUENCY OF WTS. COUPLED WITH LOW VOLUME, LOW INTENSITY CARDIO. STRATEGICALLY INCREASE PROTEIN AND QUALITY CARBS AND A BODY WILL BEGIN TO FLOURISH.

Went home for Thanksgiving, first time in a lot of years. This year, Thanksgiving day will be extended through the weekend . Tonight & tomorrows menu is smoked Chicken, Ribs & Wild Turkey . Ribs & chicken is this evening. It’s important that we maintain the régimen of food and training. It’s also important that we appreciate good food & not the act of stuffing ones face until the delayed full signal says stop. Eat well, live well, work hard and compete to win

My time at the Mecca, Golds gym in Santa Monica. If you’re seriously into bodybuilding, you have to make your pilgrimage there.

Build a back the old school way with Chins. I almost never see people do these correctly. The Arms should be at full extension otherwise the lats will not be fully stimulated. Also, “Chin Up” is the name but a misnomer. It should be a pull up and you’re pulling from the center of your back up. You’ll get greater contraction, inside out

A total package is the result of a cumulative effect. If you want everything, you must do everything. How much of everything are you willing to do? Big things are the result of little things.

I’ve trained more people then I can count. With everyone there are significant memories and accomplishments . My advice to athletes and coaches , relish the moment you are in and the memory will be more significant
