The next key factor is diet, along with the right sup- plementation plan. When dieting, you must have the right balance of nutrients along with the best of the best in supplemen- tation. This will allow you to hold on to all of the lean muscle mass that you have worked so hard on achieving. This is why I only use MET-Rx® supple- ments. Not only are they the leading authority when it comes to nutritional supplements but all of their products are cutting edge and of the highest quality.* The last key factor is, of course, the training. When others get tired and are ready to quit, I'm just warming up. I realize that everyone suffers through the brutal training and cardio sessions. But, I force myself to do whatever it takes to go the extra mile. There is no mercy, there is no quit. I focus on always training with intensity while using proper form, various rep schemes, and changing up the training routine to stimulate the different muscle fibers.
MET-Rx® ATHLETE SECTION
Many people often ask me, what attributes contributed towards me winning the "2011" Mr. Olympia Crown. Well, the answer is not as simple as one might think. It takes a different breed of animal to be a world-class champion. From the very start it all begins with the dream. When your dream is big enough, it creates a passion. Your passion then turns to determination and that determination creates a powerful mindset and focus. I have come to find out in life, that when you believe and want something strong enough, the mind always finds ways of helping to achieve your goals. The next key component is having a strong support system. With so much negativity floating around, it is a must that I constantly surround myself with positive individuals who have my best interest at heart. Throughout life's experiences, I realized that many sacrifices must be made and that there will be bumps in the road ahead. But, a true champion al- ways finds a way to persevere. Remember, it is not about how many times you fall but how many times you get back up to meet the challenges ahead.
