If ya haven't heard yet, there is an Animal Roadtrip to the Olympia starting this weekend on Sunday September 19th.

G Diesel, myself, Vinny G & Wrath are going to fly out to the west coast. We are going to converge in San Diego where Rage will meet us up in an Animal van. For the next 3 days we are going to hit up sunny southern Cali with 3 ABC events, hit up a few stores, then on Wednesday we are going to pile in the van and take the road trip to Sin City where we will meet up with everyone at The Cage and the Olympia and finish it off with the big Olympia ABC on Sunday Sept. 26.

The best part is you can be a fly on the wall as this will be documented with pictures and videos along the way. You are going to see what Vinny and Wrath eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner, hear them shoot the shit, train, hang out, etc. It's going to be a lot of fun.

Here is the rundown of some of the highlights:

Sun Sept 19th - San Diego ABC at World Gym

Mon Sept 20th - Venice beach ABC at Gold's Gym Venice

Tues Sept. 21st - Norwalk ABC at American Eagle

In between we will be eating, visiting retailers, hanging out, etc. If you're going to be in the area, stop on by.


Stay tuned to this thread for the updates starting this Sunday........................................See ya on the road, Animals.

It's a lot easier dieting away from home when you are already been doing it.

Last night was awesome training at the Mecca. It was packed full of pros like Will Harris and Tony Freeman to name a couple. I hit some shoulder work on my own to start things off. One of the great things about the ABCs and hitting different gyms is being able to try some equipment I don't have access to in my own gym. After shoulders Vinny and I hooked up for some HRT biceps. His bis were more pumped than I had ever seen them before. Very impressive look on a seasoned Pros physique. Then off to the firehouse after training. I made up for my bonus meal I had earlier with some teryiaki chicken and steamed vegetables. Great time with the crew.

Judging by the pics, I see you're eating foods prepared from the restaurants. Do you have any issues trusting restaurants when you ask to prepare foods a certain way? Plain steak, no oils, down to the ounce? Or do you not bother that much with the tiny details and just eat clean?

The great thing about the area we are in is that they cook everything healthy.
I ask for everything plain no oils or butter.

Most of my meals I have brought with me from back home. I have a cooler full of food...grilled chicken breast, black angus steaks, sweet potatos, rice cakes, natural pb, and almonds.

I hav not missed one meal and it's only going smooth because I'm organized and prepaired.

Judging by the pics, I see you're eating foods prepared from the restaurants. Do you have any issues trusting restaurants when you ask to prepare foods a certain way? Plain steak, no oils, down to the ounce? Or do you not bother that much with the tiny details and just eat clean?

Vinny's got it down to a fucking science--the meals, the supps, his shakes. It isn't spartan, he just trains hard, kills the cardio and doesn't stress the small stuff. Proper meals on a schedule but he isn't too neurotic and he looks crazy, so he's doing something right.


See you guys later today...I will be making the drive to Norwalk! Can't wait to see everyone and catch up on things!

Awesome meeting you bro. Good to see you bouncing back from the accident and staying positive. Inspiring.
