BRAD DAVIS INFO

Born in Ironton, Ohio

Married with two kids, girls, one a freshman in college at Vanderbilt university, and one a freshman in highschool.

Got into bodybuilding by just lifting weights in school for football and everyone thought I had a freaky looking back and should start bodybuilding, when I moved to Paducah, KY and joined a golds gym the guys there really talked me into getting onstage, but it wasn't until age 30 that I decided to do it.

Training methods when I was younger was heavy pyramid t
raining, I would do sets of 8,6,4,2, then a set of negatives for almost every exercise except quads which I kept in a 12 reps range. Now a days I am more instinctive in my training and will usually keep a higher rep range for all body parts but try and hit everything from different angles.

Cardio is low intensity in the offseason, and when dieting it will depend on my carb intake, higher carbs and I will do a higher intensity cardio, lower carbs and I will do low intensity cardio.

turbobusa: Hey brad I listed your national level history but am curious about your debut into the world of competitive bodybuilding.

Brad: well that would be back in about 2003 A state level show in Kentucky. Placed 4th as a light heavy.

turbobusa: Well you have along way my friend.

Brad: Thanks I've enjoyed the journey and still do. love to train Love the discipline and the challenge.

turbobusa: Were you involved in any other sports in earlier years?

Brad: Football in highschool and boxing. Nowadays itís full tilt bodybuilding as my pastime and Activity.Thatís it . Family is the priority. Bodybuilding is my outlet and reward to self for being a focused family man. So it is pretty much family and bodybuilding.

turbobusa: How many in your immediate family?

Brad I have two daughters that are my pride and joy. My beautiful wife Briggett is my lady. Iím blessed with a beautiful loving family.

turbobusa: I know you are a very family oriented man Do you think family has hindered or helped your bodybuilding?

Brad: In my case family has made it possible. They are very
supportive and keep me grounded and focused. So without question my family has really helped my career!

turbobusa: Brad you are a working mans hero in the world of competitive bodybuilding. You start getting into competitions around 30. You work full time in the chemical industry with reactor and lab duties. You have a daughter in a great university and another in high school. I had to take two breathes just to say all that. Somehow you found the energy and drive to ascend through the ranks to become an IFBB pro! How could the guys and gals that live the lifestyle while working not get excited seeing your success?

Brad: Man thanks I really appreciate that. Iím just like the other guys that love training and striving better myself. I enjoy the challenges.

turbobusa: Thanks for giving readers a better feel for who you are.

Brad: No problem.

turbobusa: You have been a national level guy for a while now. I noticed wt class changes and high placements lower placements. Then in 2013 you just lit it up! What changes put you over the top?

Brad: Well some of the guys (anasci) will remember I was had targeted master nats for 13 then I pulled back. My daughter was heading for college so I put my stuff on the back burner for a
sec. I stayed fairly lean so as things settled in with the family
I decided to do a warm up show 4 weeks prior to the North Americans. That was the Kentucky state. I overalled and put myself in get ready mode for the North Americans.

turbobusa: That is incredible! What is on the horizon if you donít mind me asking?

Brad: Oh not at all Pro debut will be the Chicago Pro.

turbobusa: Great Iíll be there to see your debut. Looking forward to that. Oh yeah, meant to ask where you train?

Brad: Oh sure two spots Energy fitness and Mega gym in Draffenville.

turbobusa: Mind me asking about supps?

Brad: no not at all.

turbobusa: What does off season look like for you?

Brad: I try to stay close to trt 100mg test 100mg tren enanthate weekly. Size is not really an issue so I go with the most with the least way of things.

turbobusa: Pre-show?

Brad: probably much less than some would think. I keep it fairly basic amts are stepped up and compounds changed. I used no Gh last
year. Insulin is used intermittently Usually 4 day low carb then slin carb up days. I really like some of the peptides now. Ghrp-2 is a favorite. I have made gains no doubt with peptide involvement.

turbobusa: Anyone youíd like to mention and recognize?

Brad: Yes Phil Hernon has been a friend and huge help for years.
Phil really knows his stuff. John Meadows. John is one focused knowledgeable guy. He has some great cutting edge training techniques, George Farah. George helped me a with prep help knowledge over the years. Great guy and knows his stuff.
