Who is Robert Galva?
Professional Men’s Classic Physique athlete Robert Galva was born in the Dominican Republic and later immigrated to the United States.
Short Career of Robert Galva
Robert Galva spent years in the gym developing an amazing, classically-looking physique before he began competing in 2016.
His objective was to shape his figure to resemble the Golden Era icons, who had chiseled abs, large arms, chests, and shoulders, as well as small waists.
Robert achieved his aims and much more after years of arduous work—he developed a statuesque physique. One that earned him his Pro Card and two consecutive bodybuilding championships.
In 2017, Robert joined the select group of only a few Dominicans who were able to earn a spot in the prestigious Mr. Olympia Classic Physique competition.

“It is advisable to do a medical checkup periodically to rule out an alleged pathology, so we can know how to act and what to do. Strong but healthy.”
Exercise during the Off-Season
Depending on which phase he is in, Robert’s training significantly varies. He’ll probably exercise five times a week if it’s the off-season, adding two or three cardio workouts in addition to weight training.
By doing this, Robert can maintain a relatively low body fat percentage even during the off-season, which makes his job easier during the contest preparation stage.
Robert Galva often works out six days a week during the in-season preparation phase, performing cardio on five, or maybe even all six of those days. He normally begins each day with 30 minutes of fasting cardio because this helps him lose the most fat.
Although Robert’s in-season exercises typically don’t last as long as his off-season workouts do, they are typically harder and include more super sets, forced reps, and drop sets.
Why are BCAAs necessary? The body needs a variety of nutrients to use as an energy source during rigorous workouts.
Muscle fibers are put under a lot of stress during strength or endurance training. The body generates energy from amino acids and carbs to respond appropriately.
If these energy sources aren’t available, it will rob the muscles’ amino acids to meet their needs. The loss of muscle mass that results from this catabolic condition is why the body chooses to employ the BCAAs that are supplemented to convert them into energy.
Off-Season laxity, In-Season strictness
Robert Galva modifies his food by his current goals, just like he does with his exercise. In the off-season, he’ll eat healthily and lazily, permitting himself to treat himself to cheat meals a few times every month.
However, regulations become stricter during the in-season. Robert Galva abstains from all processed foods, sweets, and calorie-dense items throughout this time. He won’t eat anything else but lean, low-calorie items, such as a lot of veggies.
Robert claims that this kind of dieting can be difficult and mentally taxing. He does, however, add that receiving a prize a few months later makes it all worthwhile.
What Robert Galva can teach us?
It is clear from Robert’s diet how much work and self-control are needed to take home a bodybuilding prize.
A professional bodybuilder like Robert must schedule his meals in advance and resist temptations every single day. Although it can be quite challenging, as we have seen from Robert Galva’s example, it is ultimately worthwhile.
What we can take away from this is that you can achieve any goal you set for yourself if you’re prepared to work hard and maintain discipline. Whether in bodybuilding or any other area of life.
