ProSource.net Featured Athlete Profile
Articles by ProSource
By Harry Fessel (ProSource Articles Editor/ Staff Writer) | Sep 30, 2010
At ProSource, we meet some of the most dedicated, focused, mentally tough people you could ever encounter in any walk of life. They're businesspeople, athletes, students and, most importantly, success stories. They share a common desire to maximize their performance and physique potential. They know what it is to set a goal and attain it. We're proud to know tham all.
Of course, some go farther. There are a unique few who have what it takes to pursue their fitness and bodybuilding goals to the ultimate, highest level. For the inspiring people in this elite group, we're creating a new and ongoing feature-The ProSource.net Featured Athlete Profile. Our first Featured Athlete is upcoming bodybuilder Troy Tate.
Congratulations on your recent achievements, Troy! You placed 1st overall in the Open Heavyweight and Overall Divisions at the 2009 NPC Excalibur event and then followed that up with a 1st place in the same divisions at the 2010 NPC Tournament of Champions event.
Thank you. This has been a dream of mine for a long, long time. I feel like many years of hard work are really paying off.
You've been a fitness model, personal trainer, and teacher for some time. But your next goal-to win a national title in bodybuilding and get an IFBB pro card-is rare indeed. How did you get started?
I began by reading Arnold's Encyclopedia of Bodybuilding and copying down workout routines from the book and doing them. The first few months was me and my training partner, Steve, doing all those workouts, which lead to over training, but I was making gains too. My nutrition was holding me back as well as over training in the gym.
How did you develop your training program? Did you have a personal trainer, or did you create it yourself?
I first started off with bodybuilding coaches and used their practices, then learned to create my own. I created this routine myself over the years by writing things down, trial and error and seeing what works best for me.
How did you change your eating habits?
By learning how to eat right from competing and trying out different supplements on the market to incorporate with my diet.
What foods did you rely on most? What were the staples of your meal plan?
Fish, lean beef, whey protein, oatmeal and greens.
What supplements did you use? Did you use them daily?
ProSource supplements really made a big difference for me. I used
to complement my protein intake during the day between my solid meals. I also used
for stimulant-free fat burning at wake up, before my pre-breakfast cardio. After my workouts, I used
for muscle recovery and growth. With
I really got awesome results!
That's great to hear, Troy. What are your future athletic and or bodybuilding goals?
As far as my future plans for competing are concerned, I plan on doing the North Americans next year in 2011 to go for that IFBB pro card!
I am also currently still fitness modeling and just did a photo shoot after winning the NPC Tournament of Champions title with the famous Ralph DeHaan of MuscleMag International an d Planet Muscle! My ultimate goal is to win a pro qualifier National title!
Well it looks like you're well on your way to your goal. Best of luck, Troy.
