    Bodybuilder says hard work trumps steroids

    Guelph, Ontario, Canada bodybuilder says hard work trumps steroids

    GUELPH — Fit for competition Blake Carere, 20, competes in his next bodybuilding event, in Hamilton, in eight weeks.

    The Guelph native is training every day to improve from his second place finish at last year's competition.

    Eight chicken breasts, a carton of egg whites, three packets of oatmeal — though it may sound like a grocery list, this is actually the daily diet of bodybuilder Blake Carere.

    “Nobody really understands how much dedication it takes to live the lifestyle bodybuilders do,” Carere said, adding it’s especially hard when the weight is put on naturally, without the help of steroids or other drugs.

    Bodybuilders who shun performance-enhancing drugs still have to contend with people thinking they use them, Carere said. “I don’t think I need a needle or a pill to improve my self-image,” he said.

    “It’s really not worth it for a trophy.” The 20-year-old entered the gym for the first time three years ago, hoping to add muscle in order to keep up with his friends and older brothers.

    Without knowing much about lifting weights or nutrition, he received help from other bodybuilders at the Guelph gym and learned what kind of physical change can be achieved through sheer discipline.

    “It really gives you inspiration when you know somebody’s not taking steroids to get the physique they have and they can accomplish it just through hard work,” he said. However, soon after Carere began training, he realized the world of bodybuilding involved so much more than a lot of heavy lifting.

    He said 80 percent of the sport is about nutrition and what you put into your body. Each day he knows the exact amount of protein and carbohydrates he needs to achieve the physique he is aiming for.

    And with only eight weeks to go before his next competition, he is meticulous about his diet. At a height of five-feet four-inches and weighing 148 pounds, Carere said he needs roughly 200 grams of protein and 66 grams of carbs per day.

    To achieve this amount his daily diet includes eight egg whites, five scoops of peanut butter, three packets of oatmeal and several potatoes.

    Carere is a recent graduate of a law and security program from Conestoga College and not once has he taken a nutrition course.

    His knowledge of what to eat has all been learned online, largely from one of his bodybuilding idols, Layne Norton.

    Blake has “got an iron will,” his mother, Kim Carere, said. “We were all fairly healthy eaters, but Blake has definitely made us take it to the next level.”

    She said Blake put his father on a diet and helped him lose 30 pounds in a month.

    For the next eight weeks, right up until his next competition in Hamilton, Blake will be training hard and sticking to his diet. Last year at the same competition, he placed second – it was his first time competing.

    “I’ve always been second, a runner-up in my life,” he said. But for his upcoming competition Blake said, “I have no intention of getting anything other than first place.”

    You can learn in an hour what this guys learned over three years just reading through the threads on this board.. I'm not knocking him for his view on not taking AAS. I mean to each his own but fuck does it piss me off when guys talk about it like it some magic solution. We all know that when your "on" you gotta work twice as fucking hard on both diet and in the gym. What a dooooooch! LOL Oh and at 5'4 148 pounds, dont worry little buddy no one will think your takin shit except a dick in the ass

    Oh poor Blakey... Wait until you have reached your genetic potential in a few years, and all of your gains stall.

    Yup!!!! one of those "something light, I don't want to get huge from it, I just want to break my plateau!". I've read it a hundred times.
