#5 Jeremy Brink Gives Us Inspiration
“Best advice I could give in terms of working out: always bring the highest intensity to the gym. If you don’t, there’s really no point in being there and doing a half-assed workout. Go home and come back when you’re ready to bring it.”
#4 Mike Stalker Talks Weights
“In the weight room, I basically follow a body-building type program, which focuses on one muscle group a day, and I lift for about 1 1/2 hours 5-6 days a week. I also try to do ab workouts about 3 times a week. An example of my week would look like: Monday- Chest, Tuesday- Back, Wednesday- Shoulders, Thursday- Legs, and Friday- arms. Then, on either Saturday or Sunday, I will focus solely on some sort of core workout.”
#3 Go Green’s Decline Pushups
“Decline push-ups are performed by propping your feet against a wall or on top of a bench or chair (as pictured). The higher your feet are placed, the more severe the decline angle, and the more significant the isolation on specific muscle fibers. Decline push-ups incorporate the muscle fibers in the upper portion of the pectoralis major muscle, which means more bang for your push-up buck.”
#2 Davey Wavey says “No Excuses!”
“Did you know that Barack Obama spends 1 hour a day exercising? If the leader of the free world has time to hit the gym, then so do you. … it’s not a matter of not having enough time to exercise. It’s not having enough time not to exercise.”
#1 Julian Gabriel on cardio vs weight training
“Before I was signed, I would go super hard at the gym with weights. I always swam. I’m a member at LA Fitness and I use their pool like three or four times a week so that’s where I get my cardio from. I used to use a lot of weights and I was always trying to get bigger. As soon as I entered the modeling world, they were like “yeah, everything’s great but you need to tone that down.” So my current gym regimen is pretty much cardio-cardio-cardio and abs-abs-abs. I look at the weights from afar and say, “hi,” but then I keep walking the other way.”
