Fit To Lead: BPI Sports Executive Whitney Reid

Whitney Reid, National Sales Manager for BPI Sports, has a no-frills attitude towards getting ripped.

BPI Sports executive and fitness model Whitney Reid is Fit to Lead

Whitney Reid doesn’t let a constant travel schedule stand in the way of getting ripped. Despite a job as national sales manager for BPI Sports that has him hopping around the country, Reid stays focused and, as a result, big and lean year-round. He began his fitness journey as a 260-pound recreational powerlifter in his 20s. When he started training with bodybuilders, he got ripped and started landing magazine shoots. 

“I still love training heavy, and that’s my top priority,” he says. “I squat, bench, and deadlift every week.”

Reid trains in the 10- to 12-rep range, using dropsets, giant sets, and supersets to get done in 40 minutes.

“I want to be absolutely destroyed when I walk out of the gym,” he says.

Two weeks from a shoot, Reid eats more protein than usual and drops his carb intake to 150 grams per day. You can carve out your own fitness-model six-pack with Reid’s intense abs-training circuit.

TIPS FOR TRAVELING FIT

FIND A DINER

Locate the nearest diner and make clean-eating requests. I ask for minimal butter/oil and steamed veggies.

STACKED SNACKS

I pack dry oats, protein powder, almonds, a shaker cup, and a package of peeled hard-boiled eggs.

GO FOR TWO

If you’re eating out, always ask for a healthy meal to go so you don’t get stuck without food.
