Amateur Bodybuilder of the Week: Nicholas Del Toro

Amateur Bodybuilder of the Week: Nicholas Del Toro! - Pics and info and more!

How Did You Get Started?

I got started with one of those forearm exercisers, the ones where you squeeze them. One day I did like 50 reps with one and my forearms got so pumped up they looked like Lee Priest's, well to me at least. I naively thought they would stay that way (pumped) and I couldn't wait to show my mom. After that day I wanted to pump up my arms and chest and back and so I pursued that and have done a pretty good job so far.

What Supplements Have Given You The Greatest Gains?

Old school creatine monohydrate, ON Whey Protein and Gatorade powder. I still feel like I am growing during my workout with this combo.

Why do you love Bodybuilding?

I love bodybuilding because it is the only way I have rebelled. Bodybuilding is still small enough where you can be unique in saying you are a competitive bodybuilder. I love bodybuilding because I never get sick because of this background. I love it because I feel like I can fly after I win my class at a contest. I love it because I am starting to look like those X-Men I have idolized since I was a little kid. It is too cool not to love it. We should be asking others why they don't love it.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

Be the best I can be which means someday being the best in the world.
