Biography

Start of Fitness Journey

Loic first began lifting weights at the age of 16, in 2008, initially with the aim of building his strength. After gaining muscle mass and starting to sculpt a lean physique, the Frenchman took a keen interest in bodybuilding.

He began reading muscle magazines and idolizing legends of the sport, such as his countryman, Serge Nubret – Loic made it his goal to build a similar body to him.


 

Loic’s transformation – from 16 years-old to 23.


First Competition

After 7 years of gruelling gym sessions, Loic was ready to compete; he’d transformed his physique, and had built himself a powerful frame.

At the age of 23, Loic stepped on stage at his first competition – the 2015 MuscleMania Amsterdam. Although he was inexperienced and hadn’t had any guidance on stage-posing, Loic’s impressive physique made up for it.

The Frenchman stepped off stage with the trophy, placing 1st in his debut appearance.

Pro Card

Riding high off the back of his victory, Loic set his sights on his second competition – the 2015 MuscleMania Paris show.

He was told that he could earn a Pro Card, if he placed 1st – with this in mind, Loic stepped up his training intensity, aiming to add to his trophy cabinet.

After a few months of rigorous preparation, Loic competed in the MuscleMania Paris. He managed to bring a better package to this show, and it proved to be a success.

Loic ended the night after placing 1st, and fulfilling his ambition of becoming a professional bodybuilder.


 

Training

Loic enjoys training multiple muscle groups per gym session – believing that his body responds to this routine well. However, he doesn’t have a set weekly workout routine that he sticks to.

Instead, Loic approaches the gym everyday, deciding which muscle groups can be trained. He also targets weaker parts of his physique, to attain a balanced figure.


 

Nutrition

To fuel his huge physique, Loic consumes up to 7 meals per day. He plans his meals around lean proteins, complex carbohydrates, and healthy oils.

Loic’s usually very strict with his diet, but he allows himself a cheat meal or snack when he feels strong cravings – he believes that you can these in moderation.

Diet Plan

Loic’s diet plan looks something like this:

  • Meal 1: 7 Egg Whites, 1 Whole Egg, 2 tablespoons Cottage Cheese, 2 ½ ounces Brown Rice, Portabella Mushrooms and 2 tablespoons Salsa
  • Meal 2: 7 ounces Chicken Breast, 5 ounces Yam or Sweet Potato, 1 cup Broccoli, 1 cup Spinach and 1 teaspoon Flaxseed Oil
