Exclusive Interview With Top NPC Bodybuilder Jesse Hobbs Exclusive Interview With NPC Bodybuilder Jesse Hobbs

How did you get started with bodybuilding?

I got started with bodybuilding after being on bed rest for over 6 months for a double surgery I had to have. I tore my ACL, meniscus, cartilage and fractured my shin bone during the second football game of my senior year. I then came back and tried to play with all of those injuries and the last game of the year I ended up tearing my bicep with 3 minutes left in the game. After seeing my body and how terrible it looked after laying around doing nothing for almost half of a year I decided it was time to do something that is not easily accomplished. Something that requires competition because I have always been a competitive person.

So on March 4, 2012 I decided to get up and go to the gym and start my long journey towards becoming a bodybuilder. And of course growing up watching Dragon Ball Z, I always wanted to look like Broly lol.

What keeps you motivated?

Honestly, what keeps me motivated is my potential I have at such a young age. I have been told by many pros that they wish they had the jump start at such a young age that I do. Self motivation is a big thing for me, I do this to prove to myself that even through the worst times you can always prevail and not just reach, but surpass that light at the end of the tunnel.

Cardio 3 times a week at 30 minutes a day Stairmaster Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Abs, same thing with weighted crunches. Exclusive Interview With NPC Bodybuilder Jesse Hobbs

If you had to choose only 3 exercises, what would they be and why?

Squats, Bench, Deadlift.
Mostly because I’m an old school lifter and powerlifting exercises are what I enjoy doing most and I feel like they are the most effective towards building that overall mass freak look.

Competition history:

  • Europa Dallas 2013: 1st place teen bodybuilding
  • Phil Heath Classic 2014: 1st place teen bodybuilding

I will be competing in the Dallas Europa 2014 in Novice Heavyweights and Open light-heavyweight, this is exactly 2 weeks from now. Exclusive Interview With NPC Bodybuilder Jesse Hobbs

What is your favourite form of cardio?

Stairmaster, hands down. I model this after the pros, you don’t see many big time pros doing HIIT or crazy intense cardio. They just keep it at the stairmaster 3 times a week and if worst comes to worst you can throw in another day or few extra minutes on the stairmaster. Burning into muscle is not something I am a big fan of. Exclusive Interview With NPC Bodybuilder Jesse Hobbs

What is your diet like?

Egg whites and hot cereal in the morning… Chicken and asparagus every meal thereafter with a protein shake post workout. 6 meals a day 2 hours in between both.

What supplements do you use?

On contest prep I use

  • Nitro-Tech protein by MuscleTech
  • NaNo Vapor pre-workout by MuscleTech
  • Neurocore pre-workout by MuscleTech

During offseason I take

  • Cell-Tech by MuscleTech
  • Anabolic Halo by MuscleTech
  • Phase 8 by MuscleTech (before going to bed) Exclusive Interview With NPC Bodybuilder Jesse Hobbs
