Get ready to see an epic pose-down between @jonskywalker and me lol. YouTube vid should be coming fairly soon. One of the really cool things about being a fitness influencer is all the great people you get to meet while traveling the world. I remember 2 years ago sitting in my dorm room doing my homework and dreading the end of college when I would have to get a job that I didn't like. I'm so glad I took the risk, pushed through all the hate, and got to where I am today. The thing is, to be able to do what I do, you have to figure out a way to make money from it, or you can't do it full time and you won't be able to grow as much or influence as many people. This is something I had no idea how to do until I met my mentor @kingketo. He helped me turn all of this into a business, which allowed me to move to LA and be a full time fitness influencer after college instead of getting a desk job. The knowledge he gave me changed my life, and many other lives as well, which is why I really wanna give you guys a chance to get in on this knowledge. I don't want anyone not pursuing their dream just because they don't know how. That's why I wanna let you guys know about the Fit Coach U program. It's a program specifically designed for people who want to break into the online fitness business. The info in this program is what allowed me to do what I do today. I don't know any other place you can get this kind of info besides getting a mentor like Brandon who has actually succeeded in the industry. So if any of you guys are interested in being a fitness influencer, be sure to check out Fit Coach U. LINK IS IN MY BIO. It's an extremely fulfilling feeling to help people accomplish their goals, which is why being a fitness influencer is so great, and is also why I want to help you guys pursue your dreams. Hope to see you guys changing the world soon. Peace ✌️

Yo! The bicep pump was crazy during this arm workout! For those of you who are new to bodybuilding, the pump is the full, swelling sensation you get during a workout when blood rushes to your muscles. Not only does having a great pump feel good and enhances the aesthetics for Instagram pics, but it also helps muscle growth by delivering nutrients to the muscle, including amino acids, and by stretching the muscle fascia. Things I do to make sure I get a good pump during my workouts: 1. Drop sets. Immediately after my last set for a given exercise, I drop the weight by 25-50 percent and do as many more reps as I can at that weight. 2. Isometrics. After each set I like to contract and hold the muscle for about 10 seconds. 3. Water and carbs. Sometimes I workout fasted, but I always have a better pump if I eat some carbs before my workout. The more water and glycogen you have in your system, the fuller your muscles will feel. 4. Pre-workout. I like taking @1upnutrition's all in one pre-workout because not only does it increase my energy levels, but it has pump enhancing ingredients like citrulline malate and beta alanine. 📸 @imansta1

When you're casually chilling by the pool but then see the waitress pass by. And you're intrigued by the beauty of the lobster dinner she's carrying. And then your intrigue fades into disappointment as you realize it's not for you. And then that disappointment turns into a fierce hunger because you started depriving yourself of calories 6 weeks ago for a bodybuilding show. And that disappointment turns into the weird realization that your legs look exceptionally smooth because you had to shave them for that competition. And your camera guy catches this moment in an aesthetic photo that would be perfect for Instagram if it weren't for your feminine legs practically begging for mean comments. So you decide to write an extremely long caption that seems to nicely complement the photo but was actually only written in order to explain why your legs are shaved. A bodybuilding competition. I shaved them to show my calf definition for my bodybuilding competition. Lol. EDIT: Wow. I posted this pic just before the terrible event that unfolded at this hotel. Fortunately this picture was taken over a week ago during the Olympia and I'm safely back in Santa Monica right now. Thanks for everyone's concerns. My thoughts go out to all the families involved.

Less than 2 weeks until the Olympia! I've been cutting pretty hard so I can look shredded at the @1upnutrition booth. Make sure you guys stop by if you're there. Also since I'm feeling pretty shredded, I spontaneously decided to compete in the bodybuilding contest they're holding at Muscle Beach tomorrow! I'll be there starting at 9am and pre-judging is from 10am-1pm. Stop by sometime if you wanna see me on stage or just wanna say hi!

That awkward moment when you need to take a picture in the heavenly lighting of the small Gold's Gym restroom and everyone sees you and your camera guy walk in there together. #instalife
