ProSupps Athlete James Pascale Interview
Recently, I had the opportunity to speak with James and asked him questions about his training, nutrition and aspirations for going pro.
Bodybuilding Blogger: James, your physique is looking incredible these days. Before we get into your training tell our readers a little about yourself and how you got started in bodybuilding?
James Pascale: Thank you Marco and Bodybuildingblogger.com for this awesome opportunity, it is much appreciated. When I was younger I always played sports and I was a very competitive person.
I started working out at the age of 19 just to get in better shape and better myself. I then met IFBB Pro Jason Arntz when I was about 23 and became very good friends with him .With his help and guidance he took my physique to the next level and I keep striving to achieve perfection every day!
Bodybuilding Blogger: That’s pretty obvious after seeing your recent photo shoot in Miami. Congratulations man you’ve made some amazing gains. What is your training philosophy and workout regimen like?
James Pascale: I believe that concentrated form with muscle mind control is the key in development and growth. As I am doing a body part I focus just on that muscle, squeeze and try to get as much blood into the muscle as possible. My workout regimen usually differs if I am prepping for a show or if I am trying to pack on more mass.
I always try to lift heavy with good form usually 1 muscle part a day 5 days a week and around prep time cardio 6 days a week and I will switch it up with drop sets depending on where I am at in my prep stage.
Bodybuilding Blogger: Great approach! Could you share with us your approach on nutrition for the off season and contest prep?
James Pascale: My approach to nutrition for off season prep is Eat, Eat and Eat! But eat clean food. I believe in staying fairly lean in the offseason and basically just eat the same food I would normally when I prep just more of it. I measure and weigh everything during offseason and contest prep. I think that is very important.
Bodybuilding Blogger: I can see that paying close attention to those details has paid off for you. Congratulations on being a sponsored athlete at ProSupps. How has life changed for you and what are your future plans?
James Pascale: Being a part of the ProSupps team is great! Not only does the ProSupps team all feel like family and support and help me with anything I need, but the quality of the supplements and cutting edge formulas have changed my physique in ways I thought were unachievable.
If I support something I have to fully believe in what I am doing and with ProSupps there is no doubt at all the products are amazing. My future plans right now is to grow and I’m looking to do a Jr. USA or Jr. National show first, then eventually nationals and grind for that pro card.
Bodybuilding Blogger: Any tips or advice you would like to share for aspiring bodybuilding competitors?
James Pascale: I look at bodybuilding as a marathon not a sprint so it takes time, hard work, sacrifices and dedication. If you want it bad you can achieve anything!
Bodybuilding Blogger: Thank you James for sharing your time with us and look forward to seeing you compete in your next competition.
I want to personally thank James for this interview. He is a hardworking, disciplined and dedicated bodybuilder who has a great future ahead of him in the sport. You can connect with James on Facebook and on ProSupps plus view his pics on our Facebook fan page Bodybuilding Worldwide.
