Biography

Home Workouts To Pro Status

Simeon Panda first started lifting when he was 16 years old as a skinny teenager wanting to improve his strength and overall size. He was inspired to go further when he met a friend in college who was very muscular and ripped.

Simeon asked him how he managed to get so big, the man replied that he bought some weights and would do his workouts at home. Simeon went out and bought a set of weights with no delay, ever since that moment, Simeon fell in love with bodybuilding.

“I purchased weights that same day and fell in love with working out. I remember I would get back from college excited to train.”

When he first started weight training, he recalls working out every day without fail. He soon realized he was on to something big when “I was training in my living room and a friend of my brothers who had not seen me in a while came over and was shocked and said I was huge. That really motivated me to go at it even harder.”

Simeon’s transformations.

With this new found motivation, he upped his game and went to buy some new weights that were heavier. Ever since then, he’s been researching and learning the bodies anatomy and muscle groups, and finding new ways to improve his physique.

Training

As Simeon built up his strength and knowledge of keeping fit over the years, he’s now a firm believer in training heavy, both physically and mentally.“I say mentally because nothing gives me the same buzz as moving a tremendous amount of weight.”

Warming Up

“I normally do a warm up set then go straight into lifting heavy, this has been the most effective way for me to pack on size.”

Simeon advises that muscle growth occurs when your body is trying to repair the damage done by lifting weights on your body. Over time, your body will adapt to even the toughest routines. To make sure that he doesn’t hit a plateau, Simeon will change and cycle his routines every so often.

Building Muscle

If you’re looking to build muscle like Simeon, there are three exercises he recommends which are the best to add into your training routine. These are:

  1. Squat – “Absolutely nothing is more difficult and produces more results than the squat, nothing.”
  2. Bench Press – “The bench press is fundamental in a bodybuilders routine, you get to move a lot of weight through multiple muscle groups.”
  3. Deadlifts – “The deadlift is the king of mass gaining exercises, it works more muscles simultaneously than any other movement.”

Cutting

Simeon’s diet is very strict, this means that he’ll say lean most of the year round. But if he does need to cut a little further, he’ll go out for a brisk walk on the treadmill, or even the step machine.

This goes to show how important diet is, get this right, and there won’t be much need for cardio at all.

“I receive so many emails from people who are inspired by me, this motivates me more than anything, when I train now I feel like I am doing it for them too, I feel like I need to show them all what can be achieved through natural bodybuilding if you put in 110% and do it right.”

Idols and Influences

In the beginning, when he was asked where does his motivation come from, he only had one answer, “it’s really simple, that’s fun and enjoyment.” But, as the years passed and he became more involved with the fitness world and bodybuilding, he became a perfectionist of the sport and his motivation then went from “fun and enjoyment,” to total professionalism.“I have always strived to be better, I love to see progress and I want to achieve the unimaginable.”
