Teen Bodybuilder of the Week: Nolan Rial

Teen Bodybuilder of the Week: Nolan Rial! - Pics and info and more!

How Did You Get Started?

Well, I've been in wrestling ever since Kindergarten, so I guess you can say it's pretty much my life. Also, in such a sport that really demands it, I've been lifting weights here and there now for around 6 years. I always felt ahead of my competition on strength, and I'm not going to lie, it was a great feeling. But, as always, I felt there was more damage to be done.

So about 2 years ago I really took my bodybuilding to a new level, doing more research and trying new things to really get myself jacked. Little did I know it would become my new addiction.

I absolutely love watching myself get jacked and seeing the results that I really want. In my eyes, there's nothing more satisfying in life.

What Made You Want To Achieve Your Goals?

I wanted to be the "stand out" in the crowd. I wanted to be the guy who everyone wished they looked like, and the guy everyone wished they were as strong as, not only physically but mentally too.

What Are Your Future Bodybuilding Plans?

I plan to keep bodybuilding a main component in my life until the doctors make me stop of old age. After my wrestling career is finished, I will possibly go on to compete. Also, I plan to take with me what I already know to college and make a living out of it.

What One Tip Would You Give Other Bodybuilders?

Keep a journal with you every time you go to the gym, and actually use it. Keep it all organized and neat so it will be easier to really keep track of your gains. Also, try to find a partner who will be as dedicated as you are. I found out that it is so much easier to reach your fullest potential when you have someone else to keep you motivated besides just yourself.

Who Are Your Favorite Bodybuilders?

My favorite bodybuilder is Mariusz Pudzianowski. Someday, I would love to see myself doing the things that he's done.
