Aspirations For Bodybuilding

Fitness has always been Tyrone Ogedegbe’s interest, even as a young boy. Inspired by the strong and toned bodies of action movie stars and professional wrestlers, he set out to develop an excellent body from a young age.

Tyrone’s outstanding development was noticed by a personal trainer in his gym. Tyrone might eventually turn into a professional bodybuilder, according to him, if he truly set his mind to it.

Active Lifestyle

Strength And Cardio Exercises

Tyrone Ogedegbe works out with HIIT (high-intensity interval training) cardio twice a week to maintain his ideal body composition all year long.

Tyrone prefers to use free weights rather than workout machines for the majority of his routines when strength training. As Tyrone puts it

“I believe free weights have a stronger impact than machines. You will unavoidably push yourself harder because it takes more work, which leads to more fiber being torn and better outcomes.

The fact that you have improved control of your power is a bonus. While machines can be useful when you don’t have a partner to workout with or vice versa, I generally feel that free weights produce superior results.

Favorite Exercises For Tyrone

Here, Tyrone discusses his top three workouts and explains how important they are for gaining strength in the weight room:

  • Deadlifts: “I do a lot of deadlifting to build my back because it releases so much growth hormone”. 
  • Squats: “Squats are great for total body size and shape. As well as working your biggest muscle groups – your legs and back – they help you develop a great six-pack and give you the strength you need to do almost every other move in the gym”.
  • Lat Pulldowns: Great for helping you develop an awesome v-shaped look”.
