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.
Locate the nearest diner and make clean-eating requests. I ask for minimal butter/oil and steamed veggies.
I pack dry oats, protein powder, almonds, a shaker cup, and a package of peeled hard-boiled eggs.
If you’re eating out, always ask for a healthy meal to go so you don’t get stuck without food.
DIRECTIONS: Do all circuits four times through, 15 reps each. Don’t rest between moves.
*Place your toes on the seat of rowing machine while in a pushup position. Do a pike.
**Do a side plank with one elbow on a bench. Stretch your hips down. Do 15 reps each side.
