few questions so Mike what is your favorite meal to
meal prep um I really like my chicken casserole it’s really easy it’s just
plain grilled skinless boneless chicken breast with Stouffer’s stuffing and
cream of mushroom soup and veggies it’s delicious it’s definitely you know not
probably the leanest dish but I love doing it it’s my favorites the tastiest
for sure awesome hey I’m here with Austin Bruno professional fitness person
who pursues it as a hobby so Austin what’s your favorite meal to meal prep
breakfast scrambled eggs rice and bacon keep it
simple keep it unhealthy I like it okay hey I’m Elliot and I’m here with Tracy
Lynn Cowan otherwise known as TLC unleashed and what’s your favorite meal
to meal prep I like making homemade protein bars so I
actually have a bar called the sparked it’s a vegan organic protein bar
and it’s absolutely healthy its natural and I love it because it keeps me on
track and on point so if I want something to kind of cheat on perhaps
something sweet it really helps me to keep me in check and get my protein in
at the same time so are you a competitor I am an amateur bikini competitor
awesome very cool so what’s your favorite meal to meal prep chicken and
brown rice straight up keep it simple keep it
healthy alright my name is Elliott and I’m here with Yvette Carreon
what’s your favorite meal to meal prep I guess I will go for a chicken there’s
nothing wrong with chicken you can change the flavor and then they’ll be
like no too much sodium or anything very very true hey it’s Elliott and I’m
here with Kenneth cook kena cook and so what’s your favorite meal to meal prep
favorite mil-to-mil prep would be any dark meat chicken and some macaroni
cheese in the oven yeah that is awesome I haven’t heard
macaroni and cheese so I’m happy to hear that what makes the best mac and cheese
so hey it’s Elliott and I’m here with my name is David Ziegler and I’m also Zieglermonster nickname no no I love it Zieglermonster so what is your
favorite meal to meal prep oh wait it’s actually meal prep like plan ahead and
make oh well if you’re gonna plan ahead steak is the easiest one because it
reheats real well if you do fish or chicken you end up with this like
spackle wallpaper taste and you just end up chewing a thousand times and can’t swallow so if
you’re gonna meal prep steaks probably the best good info hey it’s Elliott and
I’m here with my name is Johnny Atlas follow me on Instagram Johnny atlas 47
here at the Olympia it’s going down it was lit it was wild and it was a great
time yeah you got some questions for me yep okay so what’s your favorite meal to
meal prep ooh my favorite meal I’m actually really big on quinoa and
couscous right now so that’s my main source of carbs for sweet potatoes sweet
potatoes I swear are my weakness add a little bit of peanut butter peanut
butter powder to it or oh my gosh some cinnamon
let’s see I usually mix it with some like tofu tempeh which is really good
you can do sorizo so just veggies UMass bunch of veggies on there and that’s my
go-to it’s quick it’s easy I do a lot of of tofu because again it’s quick
it’s easy I can throw a bunch in there and it’s ready to go and then I
literally mix anything I want in it and it’s still that tastes good who’s your favorite bodybuilder um I
really have learned a lot from Layne Norton and oh myyy stuff I really like I
really like the content they put out and I’ve learned a lot from them very cool
who’s your favorite bodybuilder hi green all time ever who’s your favorite
bodybuilder well I would say you know there’s so many people in the
bodybuilding industry I I’m more into the women side of things just because
obviously that’s my sport I look up to Oksana Grishina she’s
also my coach as well as my mentor as well obviously you know four-time
Olympian as well as Arnold champion and I really really look up to a woman like
that because not only she sets an example for women of my you know
sport of my caliber and my age but also young girls coming up as a role model so
absolutely Okana Grishina awesome very cool and who’s your favorite
bodybuilder Julie Mayer it’s my favorite local competitor that’s awesome okay
she’s your trainer – okay awesome and now who’s your favorite bodybuilder I’m
Mexican so I will go for the girls like this year we had Natalia Sottero and
Sandra Rajales from Chihuahua so they’re my Mexican people so I go for
them that’s good represent and who’s your favorite powerlifter honestly right
now would have to be Larry Wheels to be Larry Wheels he’s ridiculously
strong ridiculously strong yeah that’s true and who’s your favorite bodybuilder
if we had to go back Tom Platts out a really cool mindset everyone talks about
his legs they don’t talk about his mindset if you read his book he really
gets down and just really says it’s simply where he’s like listen man you
gotta train hard as heck and you gotta eat all the food you see and that is
like the coolest philosophy out of everybody I think right excellent
mindset who’s your favorite bodybuilder ooh my favorite bodybuilder
definitely would have to be I’d have to say Arnold of course like full up school
classic I would say more recent relevant today I really like the personalities
that like Brandon Hendrickson has and Brianna of course those guys would bring
a lot of positive energy and that’s what I really love there about it they love
it but yeah I’m a big Ramy today and that dude is such a genuine individual
so nice big humble dude it was awesome to like work out and see him and and be
a presence of like someone like that very good for the industry just such a
humble guy has nothing but love for the the game and industry so yeah very cool what motivates you to workout on a bad
day where you don’t feel like working out um honestly when I miss training
it’s almost like an anxiety so what motivates me to work out and like I
would say a lot of the time I’m not ready to like go do heavy lifting
because after a long day of work sometimes I haven’t been sleeping enough
and it does not seem like the most fun thing a lot of times it does seem like
the most fun things but those days where it’s like oh how am I gonna do this it’s
I go because of a sense that if I don’t I will feel bad like it gives me anxiety
it almost like hurts because of like I’m not doing what I know I have to do to
reach the goals that I want more than anything so I want that to achieve that
goal in my mind more than I want to like take a day off when I feel like I I
can’t do it and the thing is as soon as I get into the gym as soon as like I hit
my first warm-up set I’m like it all just goes back into the zone it’s like
even if I don’t feel like it all the way up to I’m like doing I’m stretching I’m
warming up like no no I can’t do it there’s no way but as soon as I hit that
first set of like that lives I’m like in the zone and I’m ready to hit it hard I
always I always count on that what motivates you to workout on a bad day
where you don’t feel like it that’s a great question results results awesome
alright thanks Austin thanks Elliott and what would you say
motivates you on a bad day when you don’t feel like it to go and workout my
clients I’m also a professional trainer I’m a celebrity coach and trainer I work
with a lot of pro athletes and all those celebrities so for me
I just remember my clients on their worst day and what it made ovate them is
letting them know that we can succeed whether we’re having a good day a bad
day whether we’re up where we’re down and just letting them know that if I’m
gonna do it you know I can expect them to do it and we all have our bad days
but it’s those days that we put in the work behind the scenes that no one sees
awesome thank you so much on a bad day where you don’t feel like
working out what motivates you to keep going for me it’s that I know I’ll have
to be onstage in a crystal thong bikini yeah I need that motivation too I’m
gonna start doing that alright but thank you very much on a bad day where you
don’t feel like working out what would you say motivates you to get into the
gym I guess being on stage doesn’t mr.
Olympia that will be like I gotta be there’s like up there nothin go to the
gym very true alright thank you very much
and what motivates you to get back into the gym after a bad day where you don’t
really feel like it pretty much my goals and my dreams man you you said it you
set a bar high enough you want to chase it every day so even when you don’t feel
like chasing it you got to go get it very cool thank you when you’re having a
bad day and you don’t feel like working out what motivates you to get into the
gym the simple fact that it sucks so incredibly much to have to start it all
over yeah so in the beginning I understand like there’s a lot of around
because you want to you want to achieve something but then once you achieve it
it can switch it a good deal where you’re just happy to have it so it’s
kind of like that’s like you go to work because you don’t want to get fired
gotcha keeping up the progress all right thanks so much
you’re very welcome thank you and what would you say it motivates you on a bad
day where you don’t feel like working out to get you into the gym typically all I’ll watch lifting videos
some music really puts me in the mood to go work out I love music sometimes when
I’m like in a funk and like not wanting to work out or not you know feeling the
vibe I’ll go to the beach um that really motivates me to like go work out and I
realized isn’t it helps them realize that problems aren’t so big and clear my
mind can be back to normal and then just go destroy it in the gym just gives me
as possible man hey thanks so much yeah thank you
