Otto Montgomery

Professional Men's Physique Competitor

Otto Montgomery is an American professional Men’s Physique competitor. His tall, aesthetic, and conditioned physique has brought him a number of titles in the amateur division – as well as some impressive placings in the IFBB Professional circuit.

The pro bodybuilder’s competitive journey began in 2014, when he stepped on the stage at the NPC Spartan Championships. Impressively, the American came in such a good form at his debut show that he was proclaimed the winner.

Following his early success, Otto took part in one more amateur show that same year – the NPC Teen Collegiate & Masters National Championships. He impressed once again, taking home the 1st place title, and his IFBB Pro Card along with it.

Since entering the Pro Division, Otto has participated in seven professional shows. His best finishes were 4th place at the IFBB Felicia Romero Pro, and 4th place at the 2017 IFBB Hawaii Pro.

Otto Montgomery’s Training Style

Otto trains five or six days out of the week, doing cardio in the morning, and weight training in the evening.

The number of his cardio sessions vary greatly; he completes them five to six times when preparing for a contest. But only one to two times per week when he’s in the off-season.

As for Otto’s weight training sessions, he typically starts them with a lot of load and intensity – performing three to four heavy sets per exercise.

Otto will lessen the weights and focus more on the muscle contraction, pump, and slow movements as he comes closer to the end of the workout.

Getting Protein from Everywhere

Otto likes to get his protein from different sources; not just meat and dairy.

He includes big quantities of foods such as peas, brown rice, hemp powder, and beans in his diet; believing they are just as good for muscle building as other protein sources.

Fish Consumption

One of the foods Otto doesn’t like eating very much is fish. However, he says that during the in-season, he eats it almost on a daily basis.

The reason for this is because fish is rich in protein, and low in fats and carbs; making it an ideal food for fat loss and preserving lean muscle mass.

During the off-season, however, Otto doesn’t eat almost any fish. Instead, he gets his protein from other lean sources such as chicken breast, low-fat cottage cheese, red beans, and egg whites.

Supplement Stack

  • Whey Protein Isolate
  • BCAAs
  • Creatine
  • Taurine
  • Beta-Alanine
  • Fish Oil
  • Multivitamin
