Jamie Alderton Interview: Ripped Fitness Model Talks With T&T!

How Did You Get Started In Health And Fitness?

I got started in the Health and fitness Industry when I left the British Army in December 2009! It just kind of fell into my lap as I’ve always loved going to the gym and was talked into competing back in 2010. From then on I was hooked!
 

What Is Your Best Accomplishment So Far?

My best accomplishment so far is Winning the British Novice Musclemania Title back in 2010. My proudest moment was being signed by my sponsors Grenade Thermo Detonator.
 

What Is It Like Competing?

Competing is the best feeling in the world! You have sacrificed, dieted and trained for months on end and you finally get to show all your hard work and efforts off to a crowd! There’s no better feeling especially if you win!
 

What Workout Routine Has Worked Best For You?

I don’t follow any specific routine in the gym, as I mix it up all the time! I will however give you a snippet of my last quads session.




Warm Up
Barbell Squats – 3 sets of 12 reps with 60kg
Barbell Squats – 8 Sets of 12 Repetitions with 100kg

Its a Carb Cycling one. This is a great diet when wanting to get shredded and maintain maximum amounts of size and muscle. The way I will be doing this diet is as follows:

Work hard! Stay Focused and your time will come! Always stand out from the crowd as this is what gets you noticed and my biggest advice for beginners is to research, read and experiment with diet and training! Everyone is different and what works for one person might not exactly work for you so try a few things out and don’t be afraid to ask questions

Favourite Quote?

The last three or four reps is what makes the muscle grow. This area of pain divides
the champion from someone else who is not a champion. That’s what most people
lack, having the guts to go on and just say they’ll go through the pain no matter what
happens
– Arnold Schwarzenegger

  • “everyone has the same opportunities”
    if only this was true. im not being a martyr, but that statement is simply not true.

  • Completely agree with Dale: not everyone does have the same opportunities or even access to the same resources. Often fitness experts make many sweeping ‘philosophical’ statements because it is the mantras that suit them and their lives but don’t realise it isn’t automatically the same for everyeone else.
