Placeholder Image
Brandon Curry’s muscles have muscles. He recently paid a visit to USA Gym to “pump you up” and share some tricks of the trade.The Nashville native recently won the Arnold Classic in Brazil and is preparing for the Mr. Olympia competition in Las Vegas in just under three months.“Body building is about illusions,” Curry admitted while speaking with a room full of avid body builders at USA Gym recently.Curry pointed out he is generally shorter - standing 5-foot-7 - than his competition, but is able to present a physique which judges often choose over much larger competitors. It all boils down to the total package and how the competitor displays his or her body when on stage, he said.The professional trainer admitted one of the hardest things about body building is diet.“I don’t step on a scale leading up to competitions,” Curry admitted, estimating his weight is presently around 230 pounds.
