In this interview, we discuss the diet and training of a professional physique competitor with Steve Cook.

Last year Brooke Ence called me and asked me if I wanted to coach a “Big time bodybuilder.”  I told her I had no experience whatsoever with bodybuilding and didn't know how I could help him.  She explained that he wanted to do a little Crossfit type stuff and learn some weight lifting and gymnastics.  I said yes.  That guy was Steve Cook (@SteveCook).

Steve is one of the most recognized names in the fitness industry and has competed in the Men’s Physique category at Mr. Olympia for the past several years. What I found most interesting were the things about his personal life.  How to process 900k Instagram followers, how to deal with self-doubt, and how to work through the fear of failure.

In this episode, we cover lots of different topics.  Here’s a summary:

  • His diet during the off-season
  • How he cut 8 weeks out from a competition, and what he’d do differently now
  • How he trains compared to how everyone else trains
  • A list of people he attributes to his success
  • The push-up punishment/reward technique
  • How he pushes through the fear of failure
  • Rules he gives himself for social media usage
  • His thought process on dealing with fame and staying connected to those he loves
