When it comes to training, Mehmet Edip will do almost anything to get bigger and more shredded. Name the method, he’s tried it. “I do German volume training, occlusion, dropsets, and pyramids,” says Edip. (And if you don’t know what any of that is, keep reading M&F—we’ll get to it.) “Pyramid sets, where you increase weight as you lower reps, are the most beneficial,” Edip says, “because they increase strength and keep you lean.”
Edip lifts weights six days a week and does four cardio sessions. On the diet front, Edip cycles his carb intake to stay lean year-round. A SmartShake-sponsored athlete, Edip says his success as a model is largely due to his wide lats and delts—combined with a small waist.
