This body was built with strength training!

As I stated on the home page, my name is Blake Kassel. Here is a little about me and why I put this site together.

Believe it or not I have been involved with strength training since I was about 10 years old. When I was that age, I attended my first professional bodybuilding show, The Night of Champions. I went with my father and my two cousins who were famous bodybuilders, The Barbarian Brothers. Well, let me tell you that after I saw those guys on stage posing to music - I was permanently hooked! I wanted to look strong too.

It's funny, from that point on you can find pictures of me posing and flexing my muscles. When I was 13 I was given my first set of weights - a bench press, some free weights and some dumbbells. Although I used them, I really had no idea what I was doing.

My next step was a Soloflex when I was about 15. Again, I was use it from time to time but did not have a set workout routine or any guidance.

Here was the life changer! When I was 16, my father joined a gym in Manhattan called Madison Avenue Muscle. Now this is where I wanted to be! It was a hard-core bodybuilding gym that had heavy weight equipment. My father was kind enough to get me a membership and pay for a couple of training sessions so that I could learn how to use the equipment and how to create a workout program.

Before long I was making tremendous changes in my body. At 16 and full of testosterone my body would respond immediately to every workout. I was accused quite often of taking steroids because the results were so quick and noticeable.

At that time I mainly used strength training for football until I quit playing in college and decided to compete in bodybuilding.

Okay, enough about my life. The bottom line is that strength training has helped create who I am today. I truly believe that when you feel strong physically it helps you to feel strong in other areas of your life. If you need help or advice with your strength training feel free to e-mail me.
