HGH.com Presents IFBB Pros & Tips: February 2015 Edition
Who better to get bodybuilding tips and tricks from than the IFBB Pros? For this month’s edition of HGH.com’s Tips from IFBB Pros, we’ve gathered a few video clips and added more to the corresponding Pinterest board. We begin with training exercises from Alice Matos, move onto an amazing back and chest workout with Brandon Curry, then round it out with the top three winners of the 2015 IFBB Pro Western Cup.
Training with IFBB Bikini Pro Alice Matos
Get an inside look at some of the exercises IFBB Bikini Pro Alice Matos does. This Brazilian bombshell demonstrates some unique training methods and even has her workout partners help her out.
We found some other interesting tidbits from an interview Alice did for SimplyShredded.com. When asked if she could only pick three exercises what would the would be and why, she chose
- Barbell Squats
- Bench Press
- Back Row
Her reasoning is that they're all compound movements, so they use multiple major muscle groups simultaneously. She finds these types of exercises are ideal when building muscle mass.
Brandon Curry Gets Ready for the 2015 Arnold Classic
With only three-and-a-half weeks left until the Arnold Classic, IFBB Pro Brandon Curry hits the Bev Francis Powerhouse Gym. He's been training his heart out while focusing on quality mass gains and improvements. In this video, we take a look at his back and chest workout as he trains both areas at the same time. His workout includes:
- Pull Ups
- Low Row Machine
- Close Grip Pull Downs
- Kroc Row
- Dumbbell Pullover
- Pec Deck Machine
- Incline Dumbbell Flyes
The Best of the 2015 IFBB Pro Western Cup
In Jon Lindsay's Muscle Contest, the 2015 IFBB Pro Western Cup, these three buff gentlemen placed for the men's physique competition:
- Frank Ortega
- Joseph Lee
- Patrick Fulgham
After the show, they were interviewed by Tamer El Guindy, VP of Operations for Muscle Contest. When asked how long it took him to prepare for this competition, Patrick Fulgham says he did a 12-week prep. What's next for Joseph Lee? He will be back for the Muscle Grand Prix in April and is working toward going to the men's physique Olympia competition.
Last, but not least, we hear from, first place winner, Frank Ortega who had to make some sacrifices during the holiday and completed a 15 to 16-week prep for this competition. After recently suffering an injury, he just focused on making his pro debut and wants 2015 to be the year he brings his best.
