Interview with Mark Getty—The Shocking Truths Behind Bodybuilding & Shredding - Episode 89

September 30, 2021

Many of you know that my trainer for the last 3+ years is world-renowned champion heavyweight bodybuilder Mark Getty. As someone who’s been in the bodybuilding space for over 20 years, he is no stranger to the insane amount of discipline it takes to put on muscle and shred body fat.


Many people think that as long as they show up (to their workouts) and put in a bit of effort, that this is enough to stimulate a change in their bodies. Or they don’t truly understand the number of calories they need for their goals or what true failure feels like in the final reps of your final sets. One of the most shocking things about Mark is his approach to body change. When you look at all of his 275lbs of pure muscle, you’d never guess that he built his body by only going to the gym 4 days a week for 45-minute sessions.


Mark’s approach to training and eating is so shocking that every time I have him as a guest on my podcast, I get hundreds of messages from people whose minds have been blown by listening to him. So, of course, I had to bring him back on for another episode!


Listen in as he dishes everything he knows about building muscle and shredding, how he feels about tracking macros, “deload” weeks, and what he prioritizes in the gym: intensity or volume. He also gets real about anabolic steroids (do you think he takes them?), vitamins, mindset, and whether or not you should even be doing cardio!


Warning: this episode may light a fire under your ass!

“If you want to do something really, really well, just find someone who’s done what you want to do really, really well, and just copy them!”


“Food is nature’s anabolic.”


“You can’t sit in the house, take a load of gear, eat cheesy poofs, drink coke, and not move and then expect to gain muscle.”
