Hard Training

Brandon trains every day in the gym. When training, he makes every rep count by focusing on the mind-muscle connection. This is his favorite way of ensuring muscle growth and progress.

Pushing through those last couple of reps, at the end of every set with a controlled form. This is what helps Brandon reshape and refine small details of his physique – which is really important during his competitions.

To win the show, Brandon will do “whatever it takes”. This includes training harder than anyone else. Sometimes when preparing for a show, he’ll even train two times per day.

While Brandon loves to train hard, he doesn’t advise everyone to do exactly what he does. In fact, he recommends taking a rest day here and there to let the body recover. But for him personally, bodybuilding is such a huge passion that he finds it difficult to skip training.
