Biography

Early Life

Michael Vazquez is a fitness model, online coach and breakdancer currently residing in California, USA. His fitness journey began when it became apparent that change was needed in his life.

His upbringing meant that he later made some decisions that would impact his life negatively. He became overweight through poor nutrition and drinking alcohol regularly, and became disillusioned with life.

Michael cites the reason for his confidence issues, was the lack of a father figure in his life. This, according to Michael, was the main reason for his low self esteem problems in the beginning.

He had no one to turn for advice and support, and this meant a difficult upbringing for himself and his family.

Discovering Fitness

Michael turned to fitness when he became unhappy with the way he was living his life. He had made some bad choices along the way, which then led to a lack of motivation for fitness.

Fitness eventually found its way into Michael’s life, as he started breakdancing. When his son was born, Michael knew that he had to make decisions that would benefit his family, and fitness allowed him the chance.

He made a promise to himself that he would remain motivated to give his son the upbringing he never had, and soon enough his life was transformed in a positive way.

The Next Level

Upon starting out in fitness, Michael was unsure where to begin. He sought advice from those around him in the gym, and turned to online videos to help push himself beyond any limit he had previously reached.

Any advice he received was taken on board, and it didn’t take long for his progress to show. He began to lose the weight he had accumulated through regular partying, and his motivation was now higher than ever.

Present Day

Michael remains active in the finess community, as his desire to be a role model for his son means that his motivation levels never suffer. Striving for continual progression, Michael pushes aside any set-backs, to stay on track with his fitness journey.

He regularly looks back at how he transformed his life, and realises just how far he has come. He uses this to his advantage so he can remain consistent, and push himself further in his fitness career.

Training

Michael mixes up his training to include calisthenics, bodybuilding, and breakdancing. This enables him to stay motivated, and have fun in the process.

He focuses on basic foundation movements that enable him to maintain a great physique, and ensures he regularly changes his number of reps and exercises so he can continually build muscle, reducing the chance of hitting a plataeu.

A workout of his entitled: ‘400 Rep Juggernaut Workout’ is listed below:

  • Pushups – (1 set, 50 reps)
  • Jump Squats – (1 set, 50 reps)
  • Inverted Rows (1 set, 50 reps)
  • Bench Jumps (1 set, 50 reps – 25 reps per side)
  • Dumbell Shoulder Presses (1 set, 50 reps)
  • Front Barbell Squat (1 set, 50 reps)
  • Alternating Renegade Rows (1 set, 50 reps – 25 reps per side)
  • Pushups (1 set, 50 reps)

Nutrition

Prior to discovering fitness, Michael would go out partying regularly – not following a suitable nutrition plan. This led to weight gain and a physique that Michael was not happy with.

He has since began to follow a nutritious meal plan based on lean protein, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates. He prepares his meals in advance, so he is able to avoid eating unhealthy foods.

As he is on the move a lot, he uses whey protein supplements in order to recover quickly, and maintain his lean muscle mass.

Idols and Influences

Since finding fitness, Michael has learned to become a self-motivated individual. He uses his desire to be a role model for his son to drive his career forward, and this in turn leads him onto greater things.

When growing up, Michael lacked a father figure. This caused him to choose a life of constant partying that left him suffering from confidence issues that would take over his life.

He mixes up his training on a regular basis to ensure consistent progression, and this allows him to stay motivated and consistently enjoy his training.

Fitness paved the way for a completely new life for Michael, and since then he has never looked back.
