Nick Name: Big G

Favourite Meal: Always changes depending on what kind of mood I'm in and whether I'm "Off season" or "Pre contest". Right now I'm in Pre Contest and really enjoying my steak and rice which I sometimes follow with some zero calorie jelly to help with my cravings.

Supplement Stack:Muscletech Mass-Tech, Muscletech Anabolic Halo, Muscletech AminobuildMuscletech Amino 7000.

General Advice:Dont rush things, people always want the quick fix and the easy route, bottom line is there is no easy route to success. Success is built from layers on top of layers of hard work and perseverance . Give everything you have into that goal or dream you have in life and the rewards will speak for themselves.

Favourite Exercise:
Don`t have one favourite exercise, it always changes, atm I`m really enjoying my squats, hamstring curl, bench and chins.

Favourite Quote:
"Believe to Achieve".

I'm really into my music and movies and also play the guitar.

Sporting Achievements:
Growing up I played rugby from the early age of 7 at Club, provincial, and 1XV High School. Played mostly on the wing. Been bodybuilding now for 8 years, started out at 69kg and currently today I'm 122kg-125kg off season. Competed at the Amateur Arnold Classic 2013 where I placed 4th in the Super heavy weight category.

Muscletech Nano Vapor and Muscletech Anotest Reviews from Garth VDM 

This past weekend we had the 2013 Auckland Raw Push Pull Powerlifting competition at Miada Gym Avondale. A great turnout of 30 lifters who all showed great strength and effort at this amazing event!

We gave away prizes to the top 3 in both the male and the female classes, with the overall male winner receiving a 3lb Muscletech Cell Tech and the female winner a 2lb Muscletech NItrotech both from Muscletechs Pro Series. We also gave away a free Muscletech Nano Vapor and Muscletech Anotest sample to each athlete, which served perfectly for the big lifting they had ahead of them.. Read More 

Muscletech Report December "Garth's XMAS Stack" - 02/12/13 

In my stack this month I'm using the 100% Premium Mass Gainer which by far is one of the best mass gainers I have ever used. It is calorie loaded with 50g protein and 250g of carbs, so this product is well suited for the hard gainer and also as a meal replacement for someone wanting to add some more MASS. I've also got the 100% Ultra-Pure Creatine in my stack, which I use as an intra workout creatine which I add to my Pro Series Aminobuild. This is great for someone wanting to add some more lean muscle.. Read more


Garth's Summer Tip - 09/12/13

Don’t fall into the trap…fasted cardio can be very misunderstood! The term “fasted” cardio basically means you don’t want to go and eat a BIG meal before cardio. If you do you will end up using the calories from that food for energy during your cardio and in turn won’t loose much bodyfat. What you want is for your body to use stored bodyfat as energy during your cardio, how do we do this.. Read more
