My name is Mike Moulton. I grew up in the small town called Stillwater, which I am currently living today. I work full time as a mason tender. I am also pursuing my certification to be personal trainer .I remember the first time I realized my interest in fitness. When I was sixteen years old and my next door neighbor got a weight bench for Christmas. After school, he started to show me the basic weightlifting positions. That was it for me. I knew it would be a big part of my life. Throughout High School I played football, baseball, and basketball. My junior year my main focus was football. To help my strength and performance in football I started working out on a daily basis.
I maintain my body by working out hard my daily workout program consists of:
Day 1: legs, Day 2: back, Day 3: chest, Day 4; shoulders, Day 5: arms.
My leg workout is like this I do front squats, leg press, leg extensions, leg curls and stiff legged dead lifts. I usually do 4 sets of 12-15 reps. For calves I do seated calve raises and standing 3 sets each for 20 reps.
For back I do seated close grips, chin ups, and bent over rows 4sets each 8-10 reps.
For chest I do incline dumbbell presses, flat dumbbell presses, dips, and cable crossovers 4sets each 8-10 reps.shoulders I do barbell presses or dumbbell presses, lateral raises, front raises, and dumbbell shrugs 4sets 8-10 reps.for tris I do skull krushers, dips and close grip presses, and cable push downs with rope 3sets 8-10 reps.
For biceps I do straight bar curls, preachers, hammer curls, and concentration curls 3sets 8-10 reps.
My diet consist six meals a day. The complex carbohydrates I eat are oatmeal, sweet potatoes and brown rice. The protein I eat is chicken, fish, egg whites and protein shakes. I make sure I drink a gallon of water a day. I eat three whole meals a day and drink three protein shakes. I do cardio after weight training by using the treadmill or elliptical machine four times a week. I believe in staying in optimum shape year round.
The sport of bodybuilding will always be a part of my life. My goal is to become a fitness model. I became interested in this field by looking at various magazines. I made it my goal that one day I would be in magazine. Through a lot of hard work and trial and error I accomplished my goal. In December of 2006, I was in a magazine called Men’s Exercise. I did a photo layout of a chest workout routine.
I met John Mitchell by browsing the internet. He is a great photographer. John has a passion for photography and his professionalism shines through in his pictures. I did not know what to expect when I met him having no experience as a fitness model. He made me feel comfortable and showed me how a fitness model should flex and pose. John is very knowledgeable in the fitness industry and knows what it takes for bodybuilders and fitness models to become the best they can be.
Thanks John, for taking the time to take such great pictures of me and guiding me towards my fitness model goal.
