Training

Akbar Sarbaz trains like any professional bodybuilder. He may visit the gym anywhere between 4-7 times per week.

Sometimes he may even train two times per day – doing cardio in the morning and weightlifting in the evening.

Akbar likes to focus on multiple muscle groups in a single training session. For example, he may train arms and chest in the same workout. The only exception is his legs – Akbar trains them separately.

Nutrition

To become a champion bodybuilder, Akbar had to work hard outside of the gym too. The foods he eats in the build-up to a show may include brown rice, chicken, and vegetables.

Akbar is a master of his nutrition; through years of trial and error, he’s perfected his diet.

However, Akbar is human just like everyone else and has cravings for foods like carbs. He typically rewards himself once the show is over.

Supplements

In terms of supplements, it all depends on where he’s at.

If he’s competing, Akbar might take a fat burner to help him get to his ideal body fat percentage faster.

He also might take multivitamins and fish oil pills to cover any nutritional gaps from his cutting diet.
