The Muscle Machine

At the early age of 12, Helmut first started training to protect himself from high school bullies. He recalls that he would be more noticeable due to the fact that his friend was “a muscle machine.” In the beginning, it was only self-protection that got him into weight training. He quickly realized that there was more to weight training than self-defence.

He thought to himself, “I was also determined to put myself on a physical par with this schoolmate, my odd twin.” he then went on to train harder so he could compete against his friend in size, and in strength. This motivated Helmut to train and grow stronger, from this, his dream was born of becoming a fitness model. 

Helmut enjoyed weight lifting from the very beginning. His first set of weights were two bottles filled with water. It wasn’t until he was 16 when he first stepped into a gym. It’s always been Helmut’s tough mental conditioning and thirst for the best body that’s been his secret to training and competing.

From competing on stage, motivational speaking, and personal training, Helmut’s risen to the top of his game, and is a true model for what can be achieved if you put your mind to it.


Carb Cycling

Helmut’s diet is high in lean proteins and sweet potatoes and brown rice in the off-season, although he will always cut his carbs in the evening.

To reach his incredible low bodyfat percentages that Helmut well is known for, he will decrease his carb intake and slightly increasing his fat. He will also do carb cycling for a month before the event. His carb cycling will generally last for four days. The first three days will be between 150-200 grams of carbs, this he divides over six meals in the day.

Helmut’s Diet

  • Meal 1: 5-8 Egg Whites + 1 Yolk, 1 Chicken, large cup of Coffee, 3 Bagels with sweetener Jam, Mustard, Low-Fat Spread
  • Meal 2: Meal Replacement Shake: 50 grams of protein, 80 grams of carbs
  • Meal 3: Cooked Basmati Rice and Turkey/Chicken
  • Meal 4: Basmati Rice and Turkey/Chicken/Fish
  • Meal 5: Basmati Rice and Turkey/Chicken/Fish
  • Meal 6: 10-12 Egg Whites (No Yolk) and 4 slices of Brown Toast


Mind & Muscle

Helmut will usually do supersets where he will work to failure. In between his sets, he will perform a breathing routine. He will breathe in and out roughly 5 times before moving on to the next set in the workout.

As for Helmut’s gym sessions, what weight he uses and the intensity all comes from his instincts. But for his long-term planning, Helmut will make a schedule in his calendar of when he will train, what body parts, and on exactly what time of the day.

He always advocates taking your time and listening to your body, and always performing the exercise correctly. You can see this from the intense definition in his muscles and symmetry that Helmut really connects his mind to his body when training.

Helmet pays very close attention to everything he does, including his nutrition and training approach. He lives by a certain set of rules when it comes to exercising. And these rules are:
