Hidetada Yamagishi Workout Routines

Hidetada Yamagishi Workout Routines


How did you get started with bodybuilding?

I played rugby in my teens and I wanted to gain weight to enhance my performance. At the time, I only weighed around 130lbs but through weight training, I was able to gain almost 50lbs by the time I had graduated from high school.
“After I graduated, I was looking for something new I could pour my energy into, and finally found my passion, bodybuilding.”

Where does your motivation come from?

“I’m a very goal oriented person and I need that adrenaline rush of challenges and working towards a goal. I love to train but what motivates me to work harder every day to bring my physique to the next level is competition and having certain goals to improve myself.”

They say that the pre and post-workout meals are the most vital meals for the day, what do yours consist of?

Pre and post work out meals are critical because this is when you need to intake good quality nutrients to avoid muscle breaking down and to enhance proper recovery.

“My preworkout meal includes 10once Rice, 10once Chicken and post workout is 12once Rice and 12once Steak.”

When trying to cut down do you prefer to use HIIT or just normal cardio?

I do both. It depends on how I feel and my energy level.
