Who is Winter Soldier? Winter soldier isn’t a who it’s a state of mind. A movement set in motion to redefine the way we train and empower the body
How did your passion for bodybuilding come about? Since a young child I’ve always been fascinated with pushing the body to the limit and testing how far the human body could actually go! But I would be wrong to deny that I believe watching 80’s action movies gave me a lust to get bigger muscles
Could we say that genetics is determinant for bodybuilding? Obviously genetics play an integral part in bodybuilding. I guess you could say you either have it or you don’t! There are people out there that train half as hard as others but look four times better.
Can you explain to us exactly what the bodybuilding competitions consist of? Hahaha good question, I’ve never actually took part In a body building competition although I have judged one. It involves; G stings, fake tan and lots of constipated looking faces
What do you like most about muscle building? There is no better feeling then lifting ridiculously heavy weights and having the testosterone surge through your system
How old is the recommended one to start working on bodybuilding? I believe the youth should start training from as young as possible, I don’t mean to say they should be lifting super Heavy weights, but at least working on calisthenics movements such as pull-ups and press ups, then from the age of 11 start lifting very light weights.
How many days per week do you train? Which kind of exercices you do? I train an average of 5 days a week and my routine is so versatile. Encompassing everything from powerlifting to sprint training
What are your favorite 3 muscle building exercises and why? I love to bench press as it’s the staple to building a bad ass chest, military press with dumb bells for ferocious shoulders and last but not least weighted lunges for stallion infused legs
What are some of your best training tips for someone who wants to look good? First of all the most important thing is feeling good from the inside and getting your mind in the right place! Because you could have all the muscles in the world but if you still have no strength of mind or confidence then there is no point in looking good.
Please tell us about your nutrition and diet? Do you have to have a set diet to keep yourself fit? My diet is extremely simple and based off using good quality produce! I eat lots of fresh meat and fish, drink vegetable juices and keep my carbs to a minimum
Have you done competitions? How many times have you competed? I don’t compete because I don’t train to look good I only train the physical to empower the mental
Do you take supplements? Which ones? I don’t take any supplements at all, I get all my nutrition from food which most of the time tends to be organic
What other Bodybuilding athletes do you admire? I’ll be honest I don’t admire any bodybuilding athletes, I respect what people have done but in this era there are very few people that motivate or enspire me to do better, So to that end there is nothing to admire. I don’t admire someone just on there physicality
Describe your best experience? Gaining my green beret when I was just 17. Royal Marines commando training is the hardest in the world and crafted me into the man I am today.
Favorite activities and hobbies you enjoy when away from the gym? I love to write and to travel the world mixing and blending with other cultures in hope to gain a better understanding of the way we all live.
What are your future goals? To motivate the masses and change the direction of modern day mans mind!
Who are the sportsmen or sportswoman’s you admire the most? There are many Athletes I admire from my childhood years! It’s a pity the ones today share little resemblance to these motivational figures
What do you want your viewers to take away from your work? That the physical has nothing on the power of the mind…. don’t get caught up on aesthetics else you will never gain true power
Define KLASSIK MAGAZINE for the audience? I believe klassik magazine delivers the people knowledge of the workings of the modern world, from fashion, fitness, luxury to the life of celebs and more.
