How Did You Get Started In Bodybuilding?
I’ve always been an athletic person and I started weight training to earn self-confidence. I also found out training was the best way to push my limits to the maximum. It has now become a way to live. I didn’t have any interest for bodybuilding but when I started to work out I went crazy seeing the results hard work created on my body.
What Is Your Best Accomplishment So Far? Proudest Moment?
What Workout Routine Has Worked Best For You?
For me, the most effective workout is from a high volume of exercises and repetitions. I changed my body last year by working out from 1h 30 to 2 hours everyday. I believe that you have to feel the burn in your muscles during the whole workout. It is really important to gain size and cut. I don’t take more than 1 min 30 between each set, because it makes me feel pumped and it adds a cardio aerobic part to my training.
Friday: biceps/triceps calves/abs
Sunday: off or abs and calves
I change my workout every week to shock my system, for me, it is the best way to gain muscle. Workout with high volumes of exercises and repetitions and my rest time is relatively low (45 seconds to 1min 30 between each set)

Marc Fitt’s Back And Biceps Workout Video
Top 3 Favourite Exercises And Why?
Incline DB Press: Because I really like to workout my upper chest and it is one of the exercises that pumps me the most.
Barbell Curl: I think this exercise reach a huge part of my biceps. I enjoy starting biceps workouts with set of ten reps of this exercise.
DB Arnold Press: It is my favourite shoulders exercise. It is targeting the back and the front of your shoulders which makes it a complete exercise. The pump is also very good.
Favourite Form Of Cardio?
I’m not actually doing cardio. But if I had to recommend a type of cardio training it would be sprint interval. Three mornings a week, on empty stomach, do 4 to 6 sprints of 30 seconds with 1 to 4 minutes of break between each sprint. This way you burn more calories than with any other cardio training and you’ll get ripped faster.
What Is Your Diet Like?
I believe in a diet high in protein and low in carbohydrates for a great muscle development.
2-3 hours between each meal
Meal 1: 1 banana, 60g of oats, 8 egg whites,1 protein shake (30g), 2 multi-vitamin, 2 omega-3, 1 vitamin b-100, 2 caps of test alpha and 5 g of glutamine.
Meal 2: 1 apple, 10 almonds, 1 protein shake (45g), 1 chicken breast
Meal 3: 2 chicken breast, 1 cup of green vegetables, 2 multi-vitamin and 2 omega-3
Meal 4: Pre workout meal (2-3 hours before I work out)- 1 protein shake (30g), 60g of oats with 15g of raw honey
Preworkout shake: 1 ½ scoop of preworkout ‘’PreWod’’(30 min before), 15g of bcaa (15 min before)

Meal 7: 1 ½ of chicken breast, 1 cup of green vegetables, 2 omega-3
Meal 8: 4 egg whites, 30g of casein protein, 5g of glutamine, 3 caps of ZMA.
Any Staple/Classic Healthy Meals That You Always Eat?
A classic meal for me is a olive oil salad containing chicken and a ton of veggies. My favourite cheat meal is 3 whole wheat crepes with lots of fruits on it. It is important for me to have my cheat meal in the morning (3 hours before my workout) That way, I can make sure I burn this cheat meal during the day.

I am sponsored by Beyond Yourself, so a great part of my supplements is from this company: Isolate protein, BCAA, glutamine, creatine, L-carnitine, the new PreWod pre-workout and their test booster (Alpha-test).

What Are Your Tips For Success?
You have to believe in yourself and in everything you do. Nothing is impossible. If you dedicate yourself through your diet and workouts you can accomplish whatever you want.
What Is The Best Advice You Have Ever Been Given?
Be optimistic and always believe in everything you do.
Did You Make Any Mistakes When You First Started Out?
The biggest training mistake I made was not to have any diet. I use to eat way too much unhealthy food. I believe I could have a better body than I have right now if I had chosen to have an appropriate diet. Nutrition has a huge impact on the results on your body and no one should neglect that.
Your Best Tips To Getting Into Contest Shape/Losing Those Last Few Pounds?
As I said before, I believe the dieting part is the key to results. A good deplete can also be used to get shredded before a shooting photo or a competition. When it comes to losing bodyfat, I’d go with a diet containing 50% of protein, 33% of carbs and 17% of good fat.
What’s Your Gym Playlist Like? Favourite Song To Play While Running?
I listen to alternative rock, metal or Trans music. My favourite bands and artists are: Rise against, Disturbed, Slipknot, Three Days Grace, Papa Roach, Tiesto, John O’Callaghan. You can also checkout two of my workout playlist on my website: http://www.marcfitt.com/workout-playlist/
Where Does Your Motivation Come From?
My motivation mainly comes from people supporting me in my family circle or on Internet. These people help me reach my goals so I can stay focused on what I really want. I respect everyone dedicating themselves to reach their goals. I know it is not always easy, but I am proud to be part of people’s success by keeping them motivated to go to the gym. I also have essential personal tricks to help me having intense training.
I always listen to motivation videos one hour before hitting the gym and I have a great music playlist to listen during my workout. One thing that motivates me even more is when I’m going beyond my limits. I get the best feeling ever by doing so.
Greg Plitt is my favourite of all, he’s intense, true and he has the physique I ought to have. In addition to that, his attitude, mindset and personality reflect how I think and how I see myself through his types of training.
You want it, Go Get it
I could actually write a book on the importance of self-confidence, mindset, dedication, hard work and positivism, but the overall idea can be defined in one single sentence:
You have one life, live it, believe in yourself, do what you love and the success will come.
