“So with all the obstacles that were put in my way I managed to overcome them. What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger.”

Biography

Lifting for Dummies

Jeff first started training at the early age of 12 years old. He asked his parents for a set of weights for his 12th birthday. He was lucky enough to receive a bench press, dumbells, 50lbs of weights, 30lbs barbell and a training book “Weight Lifting For Dummies.” Jeff still has the very same book today that started it all off.

He admits his main reason for getting into shape in the beginning, was to impress girls. But things soon changed as he started to get serious about training and the lifestyle. He now lives and breaths training and devotes his life to creating the perfect physique. “Training is a lifestyle now. I can’t imagine life without it. Working out is as much a part of me as my own skin and bones.”

Sports Injury

Jeff was an avid sports person at school, playing high school football and also being an All-American wrestler, his sights were set on a scholarship for sports that he hoped to continue in college. Things were looking good for Jeff, the path looked set and clear.

In his very first football game of the senior year, Jeff broke his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Soon after surgery, things went downhill for Jeff, his motivation dropped off and found it extremely difficult to pick himself back up again. But there was a ray of hope when Jeff discovered bodybuilding (Men’s Physique).

He set his sights on competing and regaining his confidence, Jeff said;“I was depressed for a short period of time after the surgery. But I knew just dwelling on it wasn’t going to do any good for me, so I just told myself shit happens and planned a new future for myself.”


Jeff Seid

America’s Youngest IFBB Pro

With this new found motivation, Jeff went forward and started preparing for his first competitions. Soon after starting, he tore his ACL again for the second time only 3 months after the first surgery. With these constant setbacks, Jeff never gave up.

He kept on pushing forward for his IFBB Pro card. With a deep drive and a passion to win, Jeff became America’s youngest professional competitive bodybuilder in history in the IFBB league.

“I am always trying to be the best version of myself that I can possibly be and It’s a pretty good motivator for me.”

Training

Cardio

When Jeff does cardio, it’s always in the form of HIIT. He’ll do a 10-minute work out every other day to burn the fat. His preferred method is the bike where he’ll keep his RPM over 120 for 30 seconds on level 15, then go down to level 5 for 30 seconds for a rest period. This he will do for 10 minutes straight.

Building

Looking at Jeffs workout plan, it’s clear to see he likes to use supersets and a lot of volume. This type of workout is great for maximum growth and symmetry. Adapting to this type of intensity and volume takes months of slow and steady progress.

Starting with lighter weights and increasing as you progress through the months, you’ll soon be having workouts with the same intensity and growth potential as Jeff’s.
